I've been trying to use auto swell, and whether I place it either early in the signal chain or just before delay and reverb, i find that when i pick the string gently, it doesn't swell - I just get the picking attack that I'm trying to avoid! Auto swell works OK when I pick the string firmly, but this means that I lose the dynamic range that I would otherwise get. I have used auto swell with great success on the EHX POG2 and with almost as much success on the Strymon Mobius, but the Kemper version doesn't seem to be quite there. Am I missing something?
Same here. I have to whack the hell out of the strings, and then only sometimes does it work. If you turn the compression down, then you can't even hear it. Pretty frustrating.
