    Thanks, Paultz...

    So this can only be done with the USB Backup, not the Rig Manager?

    You can copy individual Rigs, presets, and Performances to the Local Library of your Rig Manager, keep or edit them there and recover them individually from there back into the PROFILER as you like.

    If you create a full backup of your PROFILER on a USB stick, this includes all data and all global settings. This is a tool to restore your complete setup an another PROFILER or switch between different setups e.g. if you are playing in different bands, with different set lists, in different technical environments. It can also be used, if your PROFILER gets stolen or has an accident, you receive a spare PROFILER and want to recover your complete data and settings.

    To recover individual Rigs, presets or Performances from a backup on USB memory stick, this backups needs to get mounted in Rig Manager. Then you can pick and chose and move items included intot he Local Library or your PROFILER.

    There are also export and import functions e.g. for individual Rigs with USB memory sticks. You could for example export a Rig from PROFILER A and import on PROFILER B.

    We don't want to defocus the many Remote users with technical information which is not relevant for them.

    I guess you are not programming all the time. Can't you temporarily disconnect the Remote while you program your MIDI device?

    ... Also, what does "Load Type" and "Load Defaults" mean? Nothing happens.

    These are the same functions as in the PROFILER user interface. Both functions are explained on the very first pages of the Main Manual chapter Rigs and Signal Chain:

    Load Defaults

    While working with the Effect Select Screen, you may have noticed the headings used to separate presets associated with one effect type from those associated with the type above. Those headings are not user presets —instead, they contain a default or neutral setting of the respective effect type. If, for example, you load the heading Graphic Equalizer from the right column, all its frequency bands will be flat at the beginning.

    You can load these defaults via Autoload, or you load them manually using the soft button “Load Defaults”.

    Load Type

    Preselect a new effect type and press the soft button “Load Type”. This effectively locks all parameter settings, e.g., Mix 50% and Ducking +0.5, so that only the effect algorithm itself changes. This works in contrast to choosing another preset or “Load Defaults”, both of which overwrite the parameter settings.

    “Load Type” will often make the choice of algorithms easier: for example, you can make a dedicated setting for a wah effect, and then step through the various wah types — the overall effect will change, but settings for the various ranges, including wah pedal control, will remain the same. You can also switch between a phaser and a flanger, to check the different impact of these two algorithms, and the modulation scheme will remain unchanged. “Load Type” is exceptionally powerful in exploring the numerous delay types, while c

    That OS doesn't have the Kemper Drive effect. Presets are meaningless without the corresponding software.

    Please update to OS 8.0.6 release or even better to OS 8.1.2 beta. The adavntage is, OS 8.1 introduces the Kemper Fuzz effect and it is the first version managing the factory effect presets automatically. So, as soon as you upgrade to OS 8.1 you will find a complete and current set of factory effect presets. The corresponding Rig Manager is 3.2. You might need to select "beta" in Rig Manager preferences to make Rig Manager suggest and install these latest versions.

    Init Globals in System Settings resets all global settings to their defaults, which are basically the settings in System Settings and the Output Section.

    While the defaults are usually a good starting point for mainstream applications, the optimum settings depend on what you intend to do.

    From the Main Manual:

    • While navigating Slots within a Performance via the <PAGE> buttons of the PROFILER Stage, or the left and right RIG navigation cross buttons of the other PROFILER variants, any modifications (e.g. loading another Rig, or cranking up Gain) are interpreted as editing, and will be retained until you move to another Performance. Don’t forget to store before you load another Performance, if you want to make those modifications permanent.
    • As soon as you load another Slot from your foot controller, or foot buttons of the PROFILER Remote or Stage, any former modifications within that Performance are interpreted as temporary tweaks during a live performance and will be discarded immediately. If, for example, you had activated a booster in module B, or increased Delay Mix via pedal, any such changes will be lost if you switch Slots remotely. This way, you can always be sure that Slots will be loaded in their original, predictable state during live performances.
    • However, there is an exception to this practice: While Rig Manager is connected, any modifications are interpreted as editing and maintained during Slot changes as long as you stay within the same Performance.

    Bitte mit OS 8.1.2 testen.

    Die Version führt Power Amp Boost und Wattage Meter für alle PROFILER-Modelle ein. Damit stehen diese Features jetzt auch beim Betrieb des KEMPER Power Kabinets zur Verfügung. Bisher gab's das nur für PowerHead und PowerRack mit eingebauter Endstufe.

    OS 8.1.2 is now avaiable as a public beta and addresses this point.

    Power Amp Boost and Wattage Meter - already known from powered PROFILER models PowerHead and PowerRack - are now also available on page Kemper Kone of all PROFILER models to the benefit of KEMPER Power Kabinet users!

    The availability of Wattage Meter and Power Amp Boost is not limited to models with built-in power amp (PowerHead and PowerRack) anymore. These are now available at all PROFILER models for use with the new KEMPER Power Kabinet. Both features appear on page Kemper Kone in the Output Section as soon as Kemper Kone mode gets enabled.


    fixed: old Fuzz DS not correctly migrated into Kemper Fuzz by OS 8.1.0 - Impedance LP should be set to value 10 instead of 0

    fixed: scaling of High Cut of Metal Equalizer

    User Interface

    added: Wattage Meter and Power Amp Boost added on page Kemper Kone for use with KEMPER Power Kabinet or KEMPER Kabinet/Kone via external power amp

    fixed: copy & paste of effects into locked effect modules was blocked

    fixed: effect presets couldn't be loaded into locked modules via double click in Rig Manager

    Yep, you set monitor out for one channel and the power amp out for the other. That's why people like me going nuts to add a powered kabinet for monitor out so we get booming stereo sound!

    That isn't exact.

    The signal at the MONITOR OUTPUT is identical to the signal feeding the internal power amp of PowerHead and PowerRack, because this is hard-wired internally.

    If you want to enjoy stereo sound leveraging the SPEAKER OUTPUT of the internal power amp with an unpowered cabinet e. g. KEMPER Kabinet and using another powered cabinet e.g. KEMPER Power Kabinet you need to activate Monitor Stereo - which pairs the MONITOR OUT with the DIRECT OUT - and feed the powered cabinet from the DIRECT OUT.

    One side of the stereo signal is the MONITOR OUT => internal power amp => unpowered cabinet.

    The other side is the DIRECT OUT => powered cabinet (or external power amp with unpowered cabinet).

    As soon as you activate Monitor Stereo, all settings like Kemper Kone mode, Monitor Cab. Off., Sweetening, Directivity, Bass Boost, Monitor Output EQ,.... affect both sides of the stereo signal - so also the DIRECT OUT.

    And another hint for effective manual usage: If you electronically search our PDF manuals for "Monitor Stereo", you receive a list of locations, where this feature is mentioned. The information above can for example be found within seconds on page 41 of the German version of the Main Manual "Das Große Handbuch".
