    VORSICHT! Das stimmt so nicht!
    Die Performances werden beginnend mit der Ziffer 0 aufsteigend gespeichert, nicht mit der 1 wie der Performance Index im Display dargestellt wird.
    Die Performance 19 ist also das File 18.kipf. Ein echter Design-Fehler, der sich hier leider eingeschlichen hat.

    Ja, das stimmt, alles ist um 1 verschoben! Danke für den Hinweis! Die Performance 1-125 sind in den Dateien 0.kipf bis 124.kipf abgelegt.

    Ich vermute, das ist programmiertechnisch auch so gewollt. Bei MIDI Program Changes und Bänken ist es ähnlich. Während wir die Program Changes von 1-128 anzeigen, werden die Werte von 0-127 geschickt bzw. empfangen. Unsere MIDI Bänke von 1-5 ruft man auf mittels Bank Select LSB 0-4. Funktional fängt die Reihe mit 1 an, programmiertechnisch mit 0. Viele Gerät setzen das automatisch um.

    Das find ich ein wenig defizitär.
    Hier wäre ein geeignetes PC Programm ( Editor) wünschenswert.

    Gibt es keine andere Möglichkeit die Performance die in der Backup Datei stecken zu isolieren und gesondert zu laden?

    Man kann am PC (oder MAC) den Backup auspacken, Performances löschen bzw. einfügen, das ganze wieder verpacken und am Profiler restoren. Wie man prinzipiell dabei vorgeht, ist in diesem Dokument beschrieben:

    More convenience managing large amounts of rigs

    Die Performances findet man im gleichnamigen Ordner. Zu beachten ist, daß die Dateien nicht den Namen sondern die laufende Nummer der Performance im Namen tragen, also z. B. '19.kipf' enthält alle Daten der Performance 19. Wenn man diese Performance z. B. an Stelle 52 verschieben will, so muß man die Datei umbenennen in '52.kipf'. Wenn es dann keine Datei '19.kipf' mehr geben sollte, so erscheint an dieser Stelle im User Interface 'Default Performance'. Das heißt, im Auslieferungszustand ist der Ordner Performances komplett leer.

    Bevor man damit beginnt, den Backup zu manipulieren, sollte man sich eine Sicherheitskopie zur Seite legen. Dann kann gar nichts schiefgehen.

    So far we have always only added rigs to our firmware with one exception: In 2.0.0 while again adding lots of rigs we also did some clean up and took 60 rigs out of the Browse pool. Those rigs are not included in the firmware anymore, but can be downloaded as Legacy Rig Pack 2012.

    This firmware introduces the following new features, improvements, and fixes. 2.1.0 Release is practically identical to 2.1.0 Public Beta!

    User Interface

    - added:Input Source selection (Front Input/Alternative Input/SPDIF Input). Please read related Notes.
    - added: Monitor Volume can now also be controlled via directly connected expression pedal
    - added: analog stereo switch set to ‘Rig Up/Down’ steps thru Slots/Performances


    - added: Aux In Volume can be controlled separately for Main and Monitor/Headphone Out
    - fixed: noise affecting clean sounds
    - fixed: Pitch Shifter tracking lack immediately after rig change
    - fixed: Wah Lowpass and Hipass signal levels corrected
    - fixed: clipping of guitar signal on Direct Out and SPDIF Out - changed: New ‘Initialised Rig’ is now based on Christoph Kemper’s first profile ‘CK 0’

    Performance and Stability

    - improved: generally faster Rig load
    - fixed: ‘Initialised Rig’ doesn’t appear accidentally anymore in Performance Mode after restart
    - fixed: noise immediately after loading a Slot/Rig of another Performance
    - fixed: Restore selection list can handle more backup files on USB-stick
    - fixed: accidental jumps of rig pointer when changing views

    Factory Rigs

    - added: the following rigs are included in firmware*

    Gundy Keller Rigs (July 2013)
    Bill Ruppert Rig Pack (July 2013)

    * Factory rigs included in this firmware can be imported via ‘Factory Rig’ import function in the System Menu.


    Unlike the other parameters of the Input stage the parameter Input Source is global and not rig-specific. Alternative Input on the rear panel can now be effectively used in rack setups, however is more noisy than the front instrument Input. When Input Source is set to Alternative Input, the Alternative Input won’t work as long as a cable is connected to the front Input. While Input Source is set to SPDIF Input, the front input is still active, if no SPDIF cable is connected or no SPDIF signal is detected. The front Input has got the ‚right-of-way‘ in order to avoid unintented loss of the guitar signal.

    Last Tuesday I was contacting the KEMPER support in order to ask for the right values and pin-assignments at the KPA's Switch/Pedal TRS-jacks for an expression pedal. After keeping me hanging for almost a week without an answer, Burkhard yesterday then deigned to drop me an answer: the KEMPER company is not willing to support the development of "complementary products".

    I just stumbled over this misleading statement. In fact we have been and are actively working with various other companies' experts to develop complementary products. Uno4Kemper is an excellent example.

    When you raised your request back in February you were mentioning, that you are no techncial expert, I transmitted clarifying comments and questions from our engineering team on Feb 25th and after clarification you got the following documented answer - in native language - on Feb 27th.:

    nach Auskunft steht der KPA default auf "Roland", d.h. Schleifer auf "TIP" und Potiende auf "Ring". der Widerstandswert sollte 10K - 100K betragen und linear sein. Generell ist die Zuordnung am Klinkenstecker frei definierbar und der Range kann kalibriert werden.

    you can place the loop either in any of the Stomps A-D in order to combine with any other stomp boxes placed between guitar and stack or in the Effects slots X or Mod. The Effects section is stereo and located behind the stack. So you can loop in stereo-effects as you would do in a studio or FOH setup, which you cannot do with a typical guitar amp mono effect loop.

    There is one physical loop, which can be used for non-distorting effects (Loop Mono or Loop Stereo) or for mono distorting effects (Loop Distortion). The feature unique to Loop Distortion is that any volume boost of preceding effects will be applied to the send jack, thus driving the 'distortion pedal'.

    Never got a reply from the Kemper team, bit disappointed to be honest. I contacted Thomann instead to arrange a swap as I can't resolve the problem myself

    Your ticket raised on Juli 31st was responded to the very same day. The exhaustive answer with suggestions how to narrow in on the root cause of this issue is captured in our database. Didn't you get that e-email? ?( Spam-filter perhaps? 8) I'll resent the message. Let us know.

    We are sharing 25 preamp profiles. The preamp signals have been picked from the Send of the tube amps' effect loop connecting it with the Return of the Profiler. Such profiles should be played through tube amplifier and guitar cabinet. Instead of using a separate tube power amp you could also feed the signal into the Return of a tube amp's effect loop. In any case the cab simulation of the Profiler should stay activated, because it has an impact on the sound.

    Please use this link and select 'Rig Packs':…mplifier___Downloads.html

    for those users, who want to know which Factory Rigs are currently available and how to import and recover missing ones, here is a Factory Rig Inclusion List:

    Rigs included in the operating system currently installed on your Profiler can be imported by simply pushing the softbutton "Factory Rigs" in the System menu. This is an all-or-nothing-approach. All Factory Rigs and Presets included in this operating system will be imported.

    Alternatively you can chose and download Rig Packs from our web-page and select those Factory Rigs you want to import via USB stick or Rig Manager.

    There is no single MIDI control change number switching the whole STOMPS nor EFFECTS group on/off. However control change #16 inverts the status of STOMP A-X plus MOD. DELAY and REVERB stay untouched. Depending on what you are trying to achieve, this might help.
