Just bought the crank n go pack yesterday afternoon. Did a gig tonight using the Friedman performance included just as is with no modifications at all. Les Paul as main guitar and a tele for more pop stuff. Sounded absolutely fantastic. Big grin on my face all night.
Ive got a Kemper power head Im putting up on evil bay tonight.PM me if u r interested.
Ive done DI profiles with a Palmer, a hotplate and a cheap Behringer active DI box. The Behringer gave by far the best results.
Any chance of you doing some DI profiles of your Bogner Ecstacy with the hotplate
I have the full set of your regular profiles, but when playing live I only use DI profiles and would love to have access to some Bogner tones.
Do a search on the rig exchange for sheguitarplayer, you will find some of my DI profiles of the EVH5150.
Did you do the di profiles using a DI box or from the amp fx loop?
Ive also found that if you change the rig in one of the slots, it keeps the name of the former rig in the slots.
Entered in error
It was just channel 3 of an evh 5153 amp into a Palmer speaker simulator.
Glad some of you like it.
Upgradeable DSP?..Thats very interesting......
Just a thought Will. There are a few profiles on the rig exchange using a Palmer speaker sim instead of a miced up cab. You could always switch the cab on these for the cabs on your profiles if you want. Might be the sound you are after.
Just type palmer into the search line of the exchange and you will see a few I did way back when......
I have one of the Korean ones.
My verdict ......
Magnetic pickups very good
Acoustic models very good
Electric models....meh. They tend to get very muddy, in particular the Les Paul models
Doesnt like palm muting on the models. Just a symptom of the piezo pickups being on the opposite side of your palm to the pick itself so no matter how much you change technique or try to eq it 'chugga chugga' just aint happening on the modelled sounds. Fine on the mag pickups though.
I use a Matrix GT1000FX into either an EVH 4x12 (Greenbacks) or a Cornford 4x12 (V30s).
Flat monitor output eq.
Sounds fantastic to me.
No need to disable cabs on profiles 10-17 for power amp/cab. There is no cab in the profile.
A handful of profiles I did of my Marshall JVM401HJS (The Satch sig Marshall).
They are all 'direct' profiles of the amp and power amp through a Rivera Rockcrusher.These were made specifically for power amp and cab use (no speaker involved in the profile) so if you want to use a speaker sim I would recommend one of Tills.
Let me know what u think.
EDIT Profiles 1-5 seem to have a cab portion attached as I misadvertently had cabs locked on when I took the profiles.
10 = crunch red
16=OD1 Red gain on full
Christoph said some time ago that it would be an easy matter to add tone stacks of different amps to the KPA, and I believe was in the process of building a library of them.
Dont know whether there are any plans to actually add this in the near future or not.
At an interview for guitarmuse.com he said...
"The equalizer is another obvious tool to go beyond (the physical
range of the profiled amplifier). We are building up a library for
passive tone stacks so every amp can be equipped with the corresponding
equalizer, even after the profile has been captured. The tone can be
shaped then as on the original. But you can even choose another passive
tone stack for your profile, or even a studio equalizer, that goes far
beyond the boundaries again."
