I'm sure someone has said it on here..Something is obviously wrong. I am an amp and tone snob (..at least I think I am lol..) Owned every Boogie, Bogner, Diezel,etc...as well as Axe FX and Line 6..Still have the Boogie MKIV half stack that my other guitar player uses and I go thru my K Powerhead through a V30 Cab. Absolutley gloriously crushing..plenty loud, full, rich and organic sounding (..using a rofile of my Boogie that I did myself..) It literally shocks us how good it sounds everytime we plug in to it. I got rid of my Axe Fx gear (..sounded KILLER, but the interface on the fly was challenging) as well as my Helix becasue it took a lot of EQ tweeking for recording direct....The Kemper i just plug in and go..NO tweeking, sounds and feels so inspiring... I'm sharing this because I was so skeptical of the Kemper, and it has outlasted all but one of my amps and modellers...If it doesn't sound and feel incredible (..again, depends on the profiles and some other factors, ) something is wrong. Good luck man...sorry for the bad experience.
Yeah i go (EDIT!! Left out from my Kemper) into my my clarette 4pre and my adam audio monitors go directly out of the 4pre. Could it be because im doing this i hugely lack the awesome-ness that is the kemper...because in theory the monitors are not a guitar cabinet so why would it sound like one right. The main reason i purchased my kemper was so i didnt have to mic it up and i could record anytime i needed at low volumes without the neighbours calling the cops lol i own an Orange Rockerverb and its the greatest amp ive ever played but micing that loud Mamma in my room aint very practical...would be crazy fun for sure but not for my neighbours lol
