    have you tried the 'Pick' parameter in the AMPLIFIER module?

    Yes, no luck! I have bought an EHX Attack Decay which is the best auto-swell pedal I have tried yet, and I'm using it in the effects loop of the Kemper Stage. It works beautifully both in mono and polyphonic mode. It's a pity, because it's the only outboard effect I reckon I'm going to need! It's a pity on two counts (1) it's extra gear to bring to the gig and extra set-up time connecting it to power, audio, etc (2) the Kemper has an effect that sounds like it ought to operate in a similar way but I have been unable to get to work satisfactorily so far.

    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.

    I am a new user. Today I used my Kemper Profiler Stage in a live gig for the first time. I brought my iPad, expecting that I would be able to do any last minute editing using the new iOS rig manager app.


    As it happened, I needed to do two things:


    1. change the order (sequence) of the performances, because the set list order had changed

    2. check that the bpm (tempo) value on each performance (song) was correct.


    I discovered that I could do neither of these things!


    I would therefore like to request that the iOS rig manager app :


    1. should provide an easy way (preferably with dragging and dropping) to change the sequence of performances on the Profiler

    2. should allow the user to display and edit the tempo associated with each performance.

    Why don‘t you buy a Barefaced Reformer 112 instead and put a Kemper Kone inside? That should give you best of both worlds. I have one with a normal speaker and it is a really great sounding cab.

    now that’s an intriguing prospect! Have you used your Barefaced cab with a Kemper direct amp profile?

    Why would you spend double the amount of money to get basically the same thing as a Kemper Kabinet? The Kabinet is rated at 200 watts too. Plus you can use imprints on the Kabinet and it matches the Profiler. Kabinet is $480US

    it’s the ability to “fill the room”, without losing low end which attracts me. I reckon a closed back cabinet will sound great for you but the other guys in the band may not be able to hear you. If that’s true, the imprints feature may be of lesser importance. Happy for someone to tell me that their band members can hear them fine without additional monitors (in-ears, floor wedges, etc).

    I haven’t plumped yet. I reckon that a closed back cabinet ( Kabinet) is going to sound great if you’re in front of it but for the rest of the band it may not work very well, if they do not have fold back speakers (wedge/floor monitors) or in-ear monitors. Any comments?

    Just bought a Kemper Stage. Disappointed to discover that rig manager has a software bug that prevents me from creating performances and syncing them to the profiler. I have spoken to kemper support who have confirmed that this is a known problem. I am surprised that something so fundamental doesn’t work. Am I missing something?

    Has anyone tried one of these with your Kemper?


    It’s an FRFR cab that is designed to fill the room, and therefore enable the whole band to hear you clearly. I think it is designed to work well in venues, perhaps smaller venues, where the guitar is ‘un-miked’ and doesn’t go through the main sound system.


    I’d be interested to hear how you’ve been getting on with this, and what you have been using as your power amp, particularly if you’ve been using a Fryette PS-2 or LXii, which is what I am leaning towards at the moment.
