    Keith is a studio musician, guitar player, songwriter, producer, engineer and above all else: a tone enthusiast! He loves high gain amps and bone-crushing metal tones. The Kemper profiles he has created for this Rig Pack are engineered in his studio, and are exact copies of tones that he uses on a regular basis for recordings.Additionally Keith has visited his good friend Jeff Loomis and used the opportunity to also profile Jeff’s amp setup.

    Please select download category 'Rig Packs' ..... and enjoy!

    As soon as the new owner will register using the serial number he will get the "owner" status and you will loose it. Nothing special to be done.

    True statement! You have the option to de-register your Profiler in your user account, an option that we recently added, but you don't have to.

    yes, there is a bug. If you load rig A and then enter Browse Snapshots, select snapshot B, go back to main page, you see B, which isn't a rig yet, because you havn't stored it as a rig. But the software allows you to set the Favourite flag and rig A becomes a Favourite, which you currently don't see anymore. Again the issue is, before you havn't stored this snapshot as a rig you shouldn't be able to set Favourite. We'll fix this in a future firmware.


    Be aware, that you can only declare rigs to favourites not snapshots.

    Thank you, your tip hits bull-eye - it worked. But unfortunately I lost all settings of the new ducking-parameter in the rigs that I edited under 1.6.0 beta :evil:
    Guess I better get my hands off the beta-versions in the future ...


    EOC

    The ducking settings don't get lost during the downgrade to any older version without ducking e. g. 1.5.4 Release and following upgrade to 1.6.0 Release.


    Obviously you cannot access these settings in 1.5.4 and immediately after first boot of 1.6.0 the initial rig buffer shows ducking <0.0>, because that rig buffer is a left over of the firmware before upgrade. But as soon as you load any rig, you will see, that those settings were captured in the rig files.


    Generelly we suggest to initiate a backup before any upgrade. :thumbup:

    This firmware introduces a ducking parameter, new effects, Aux-In, S/PDIF Out volume control, erase of non-favourite rigs, selective export, as well as a completely revised package of local presets for stomps/effects, delay, reverb, and Stack section. Aliasing is avoided and the Noise Gate has been optimized for clean sounds.


    The document ‘KPA Manual EN Addendum 1.6’ does include explanations of new features and effects. The Reference Manual has been updated.


    At the same time we are releasing the new ‘Rig Pack 04’, which does include 19 rigs demonstrating the application of the new ducking parameter as well as other effects plus 5 rigs tailored for Acoustic guitars. ‘Rig Pack 04’ can be downloaded from our web-page.

    There is a warning in the release notes since 1.5.0. If you downgrade before that version e. g. 1.1.0 or 1.1.1 the unit will stopp during the following boot ebcause of an incompatibility. You need to restart with a specifc reset: Push and hold the System button, while you switch the unit on and keep pushing until message appears 'Initializing global settings'. The unit shoud then boot and start with the Statup Dialog. So you need to re-enter your owner name.

    We are happy to announce CabMaker, an application, that converts impulse response files into cabinet definitions for the Kemper Profiler. CabMaker is available on our download page under category 'utilities'. You will find two versions, one for PC and one for MAC users.

    When you use the browse knob (Right knob) to change the Amp type while you are on the Amplifier page, after a certain number of amps the sound stops working.
    Even if you exit and change the whole rig or change to a favourite there's still no sound.
    You have to physically reboot the KPA to get back the sound.


    Is this a beta FW bug?

    Can you please clarify two conditions:


    1. While amp is in focus, can you please confirm that you are using selective browse (not browsing presets, but rigs)
    2. Is the Autoload flag ticked or are you in manual load mode?

    A thing from the future slipped into ..... Don't tell anybody!

    Upgraded with no problems, no more noticeable aliasing. Lovely stuff, the new Phase and Flanger effects are really nice also ducking delay yay! And as unlikely as it may seem SPDIF volume is really going to come in handy here. Great Job team Kemper!


    BTW can anyone tell me why the new amp EQ presets contain several with the same settings of 0,0,0 but under different names?

    We included these EQ presets in order to demonstrate how this feature could be effectively used to tweak your sounds. While you are tweaking these neutral presets can be used to compare and have a reference point.


    If it's like what other ducking units do, it actively mixes your dry and wet signals such that if you play hard, the wet signal gets temporarily squashed (or "ducked") in favor of the dry signal.

    This is how the Ducking parameter works on the positive side. Be aware the parameter is bipolar. On the negative side the wet signal gets temporarily stronger the harder you play. Detailed description can be found in Addendum 1.6 as well as Reference Manual included in the download package.

    May I ask, what you are referring to as 'Tone Stack Library'. We have not only introduced a complete and consistent pack of factory presets for stomp and effects, but also a few Amplifier, Cabinet, Stack and EQ (=Tonestack) presets. These are mainly for demonstration purposes. So, what is missing?

    This beta firmware introduces a ducking parameter, new effects, Aux-In, S/PDIF Out volume control, erase of non-favourite rigs, selective export, as well as a completely revised package of local presets for stomps/effects, delay, reverb, and Stack section.

    So far we have not been able to replicate this issue and the information, how this hang can be overcome, isn't consistent. In order to narrow in on the root cause, it would be extremely helpful to understand:


    - When the unit seemed to hang, how long did you wait?


    - Does booting the firmware from USB-stick always fix the issue at least for the moment?


    - Does no reset (SYSTEM = Global Settings, RIG = Rig Buffer, QUICK = Midi Program Change assignments) fix the issue at least for the moment?


    - Is it possible to overcome the hang by just trying and restarting a few times without any reset or booting from USB-stick.
