All of these "lab rat" tests are irrelevant, play the thing at volume and feel the difference.
The sense of immediacy and toothiness needs to be focused on.
For the player the Kemper is the product of choice because of its feel, 3D and player feedback immediacy.
All of these tests and technical comments ONLY are just like the FAS forum with Cliff and his blind disciples.
It's this reason I am NOT interested in anything Fractal and why Kemper got my business. Since when has music been
about just the tech without consideration for the player. It's a machine for "players" after all, correct?
Can we still get some detail on the change re the anti aliasing in 1.6 and again, why can't we have 1.54 with the
updates and leave the aliasing alone all together then EVERYONE will be happy?
This action will then put an end to this debate/discussion. Pretty simple solution don't you think.
I was half joking half serious in my "I'm not deaf" post.
I mean, despite of all the tests, all the oppinions and all CK statements, I felt almost instantly there was a lost of sound/feeling/response call-it-what-you-want when I updated to 1.6, and I didn't know anything about this post, I was even thinking there was a problem with my guitar, or cable, or poweramp.Then, I saw this post.
I don't know what it is, I hate blind test, comparations, ozone, etc etc, and I also hate accepting any statement without checking it by myself.That's why I had to tried the Kemper after being an Axe lover sin the first day (I even had the first official Axe in Spain when no one even knew about it).I bought it, played side to side with the Axe for one week, and no matter what Cliff, the Axe forum or anyone wrote or said.Kemper was way best to my ears.And being loyal to that philosophy, I found something that I don't like in 1.6.And you could prove that they sound exactly the same, but I can't fight what my ears and brain tells me when I play.Maybe is just a problem of mine (don't think so after seeing how many traffic has this thread) but I'd really like the Kemper team to accept that feeling and try to solve it, not just demostrate or prove that what I hear is not "correct".My experience is more playing thru a poweramp and two 4x12, and the feeling when playing is different, also is the response and dynamic.I don't mind about curves, reamping, firmwares or whatever.
I hear what I hear, and I'm not deaf.
