If you import the attached amplifier preset you can use the equalizer, which is now part of the amplifier module. The preset includes the PROFILE of a patch cable. You can create that yourself. It's like a completely sound-neutral amp.
By the way WahPedal to Volume is not selected by default.
Is organizing Rigs and Performances in folders on the front panel (PROFILER Stage on the floor?) really practical and efficient? Especially if you deal with big numbers, if - as mentioned - 125 Performances are not sufficient?
I would organize my Performances in folders in Rig Manager and set up different backups for each band, which do include Performances in line with set lists, but also input and output routing in line with each band's technical environment. Then before a gig just restore the corresponding backup.
True, thanks! Will be fixed in the next revision of the Main Manual!
From the mbritt faq: "Beginning with Kemper firmware 7.0, the file types of Kemper rigs changed from .kipr to .krig. To import .kipr files into a Kemper that is already updated to 7.0 or higher, you will need to import the files into your Rig Manager's "Local Library", which automatically converts the file type to .krig. You can then drag/copy onto your Kemper within Rig Manager."
That's not true!
You can import Rigs with the older extension .krig into Rig Manager and also directly into the PROFILER via USB memory stick. The OS converts these as well. I tried even with the oldest Rig-files I could find.
If the OS doesn't import a Rig,
- it's either already in the pool (normally the file name reflects the Rig name, but if somebody changed the file name, it might show up under its real Rig name in the pool.)
- or the PROFILER is filled up (at about 1000 Rigs in its pool),
- or the file on that stick is damaged and not a valid Rig file at all.
I'm attaching one of the oldest Rig files I could find created in 2011. Check it out.
There is a support FAQ as well as the chapter Noise Gate in the manual explaning the domains of the input noise gate versus the effect noise gates.
I don't understand the purpose? If the intend is recording the DI for reamping, why not transpose during the reamping? Or transpose in the recording software?
One more hint: Method 1 works fine in the Editor.
This is the complete quote from the manual:
· You can erase Morphing of any parameter by turning the morphed value back to the base value.
· A safer way to erase a Morphing is to first activate the Base Sound, and then sweep the base value of any parameter past the morphed value.
The safer method 2 works perfectly here. Method 1 might have the issue, that it is very hard to exactly meet the base sound value including hidden decimal places. because otherwise you immediately set a new morph value.
Please follow our suggestions. I had tested and reconfirmed this yesterday before I suggested it. Rig Manager 3.2.43 does recognize and update OS 5.5.2.
You have the following choices:
1. test other USB flash drives
2. update via Rig Manager and hope that the USB flash drive issue disappears
3. send your PROFILER, which is more than 9 years old, for check and repair
If you don't want any of those, you can only stay on OS 5.5.2. There is unfortunately no other way, sorry!
Have you considered updating your PROFILER via Rig Manager?
Rig Manager will automatically perform a two-step update, first from your present OS 5.5.2 to OS 7.3.2, then from OS 7.3.2 to our latest OS 8.5.8.
Just to clarify:
For the pedal function a TRS cable is required.
For the switch function a TS cable is sufficient, but another TRS cable should also work.
This subject is covered in the current Main Manual including graphics.
Hey, my Kemper unit is going on eight years and two of the pots have started behaving erratically.
The problem has been there for a long time, and they are still working, but the values jump from place to place and sometimes they move backwards instead of the direction I am turning the pots in.
Would a spray of deoxit on the pots work to fix this problem? Or do I have to send the unit for a non-warranty repair?
I can make a video if that helps to demonstrate the problem. As mentioned, the pots are working, they are just moving erratically.
These pots seem to be defective. The spray might not improve the situation. And we don't imagine a way to get the spray to the right spot.
Please open a support ticket to initiate repair.
unfortunately no. Contacted kemper service to see what they recommend, never replied.
You opened a support ticket on June 10th. An answer has been sent by a colleague from our US team on June 11th. It's documented in the ticketing system. Please check your spam.
My first suggestion would be to check if you experience the same issue with the ALTERNATIVE IN on the rear side with Input Source set accordingly.
Have you tried to restart the PROFILER?
Reinstalling the OS is voodoo.
I bought the Kemper switch years ago to use for rehearsals.
The only issue I had is it activates once you release the switch not when you initially press it ( sometimes I lean on the switch rather than tap it), and that slight "delay" threw me a bit.
Not sure if this is the same for the remote and other switches but it was very noticeable.
Otherwise, great bit of kit!
That is not a hardware issue! The polarity must have been screwed in your settings. The KEMPER switches are normally open and the PROFILER expects switches normally open.
In earlier sofwtare versions it was possible to change the polarity. If the PROFILER thinks your switch is normally closed, while it is normally open, this has exactly the effect you are describing.
I suggest you use current OS and press Init Globals which should realign the settings.
The algorithm doesn't compare parameter by parameter. It's simply: you load a Rig and a locked modules overwrites the original.
It sounds like the volume in the cabinet section works the same control found in the amp section? I'll have to check that out.
Years ago we had a volume parameter in the cabinet. But when we introduced the ability to create Direct PROFILEs (without cabinet) we migrated this volume into the amp. Since then there is only an Amp Volume and no Cabinet Volume.
