Let's say it would be good if the looper could save one round of a 12 bar blues.
Just for comparison, the Boss RC1 has a recording time of 12 minutes (alas in worse quality). The Dito Looper has still 5 minutes and the Boss RC-10R can even do a whopping 6 hours, if I'm not mistaken.
The Kemper Profiler can replace so many pedals (I did some A/B comparisons and found the Kemper effects sounded identical) but the looper is not one of them yet. Maybe some day in the future?
Since the 12 bars include 48 beats, you can save a blues at 96 BPM.
Or a very slow blues at 48 BPM, when set to 1/2 time.
How would you make use of 5 minutes or 6 hours?
15. The looper in the Kemper remote has an insanely short recording time. Don't sell your boss loopers (like I did...).
It depends in your plans.
Insanely short to me would be 15 seconds, but even this would work well for classic pattern looping.
However, the Looper does one minute of recording time when set to 1/2 tempo (before hitting record).
20. You cannot use the Kemper's effect loop and aux in or record a direct signal for reamping at the same time. Although I love the fact that I can use external pedals with the Kemper and place them anywhere in the effect chain (genius!) it's very frustrating not being able to record a direct signal at the same time.
18. The "Space" option in the output section is a very powerful tool to achieve a more natural sounding tone and doesn't need to be limited to headphones only.
But yes, you can.
You can set all outputs (Main Output as well as Monitor Output) to different signal sources, including DI signal.
And use the Send for the FX Loop.
The Space is not limited to the headphone but can be set to main output as well by clicking the switch above the Space pot.
There is an additional Space effect availble in the Type list.
Let me expand on my SPDIF statement: I am sure that a professional sound engineer or someone with a high end interface can manage to get the same sound out of a cable/main out situation as when using SPDIF. But as a beginner I found it impossible. My recordings never sounded like what I heard when I connected my studio headphones to the Kemper directly.
Once I purchased a bigger version of the Scarlett that had SPDIF input suddenly all of my problems disappeared. The signal sounded pure, no additional gain added by my interface front input. I didn't have to worry about finding unity gain at all anymore. And the best thing: I could just switch between profiles and always had the volume perfectly adjusted to go ahead and record. Before that I had to adjust gain all the time when switching profiles, hoping I would find the perfect amount for the cleanest recording.
If you're a beginner like me, I say it again: use SPDIF and live happy.
With a high quality audio interface (such as Focusrite) you will be able the same results even through the analog inputs.
It is likely that you have overdriven the inputs of your interface, resulting in a bad sound and unpredictable volume differences.
Going analog is a very usual method, if not the standard method. More beginners fail with SPDIF.
Wouldn't it be possible to do this as an option?
I used #-tuners for years, my DAW and writing software works with # and my brain also… probably I could adapt, but a choice would be much more preferable
The Tuner in the Profiler is usually taken for tuning guitars, the open strings. EADGBE. And others.
No b or #.
For a semitone drop you will have the same with b added, which is the best solution.
Do you prefer to tune to D# instead of Eb tuning, while every guitarist would call it Eb tuning?
Where do you encounter a situation with your electric guitar, where a # would be favorable?
And to second what has been said:
The pedal settings were designed to do exactly what you need.
Set up your Rig individually as you intend, concerning the Wah effects and Volume Pedal settings.
Afterwards, you can opt for a combination of Wah and Volume (Wah>Volume), cancle this link with one click and defeat the Volume Pedal funktion.
At a different point in time you could connect a separate and dedicated Volume Pedal side by side with your Wah Pedal (and even Pitch or Morph Pedal.
All without touching your Rigs.
Where are your Delays and Reverbs sitting in the signal flow?
Only DLY and REV module will spillover.
While I cannot hear any technical shortcomings in the tracks, I can truly hear double tracked clips (two separate recordings), fully panned to the left and right.
The double tracking seems to be intentional (as it is usual art), but it is not specifically mentioned in this thread.
Double tracking naturally induces phasing, which is often intended by art.
However, is this the issue you are talking about? Maybe I don‘t get the point.
Happy new year, BTW !
I was saying this but very badly
Its a small but important point for me. My master volume controls my power amp. In the unpowered versions, it adjusts to output volume to a power amp and hence you can't easily control your volume this way, you have to use whatever power amp volume.
With a powered monitor, controlling your volume is irritating becuase you have to reach behind the monitor to change the volume...its one reason I don't use a stage and a DXR10.. I see our other guitarist with a Helix doing this, monitor wedge in front of him, constatntly bending over and tweaking the volume which is located at the back of the monitor. So he takes off his guitar, leans the wedge forward to change it...guitar back on...not quite right, guitar off repeat.
Yes I know you can partially control the volume via the input as it has a wide range but I like the fact I don;t have to worry about the input volume to my monitor.
As a said its a small point but for me I like to control my KPA just like a regular amp
I don‘t know what‘s the problem of your other Helix guitarist is.
But you can for sure control the volume of your power amp just by the Profilers Monitor Volume, in a full way. That is what everybody is doing.
Do you fear to overload the input of your power amp?
We have never assumed that there is a problem in the Profiler.
Since there were no similar complaints since four years, we need more details.
How do you guys want to synchonize a slizer to your drummer?
By Midi Clock?
Last night I tried again in this setting with the pedal in front of the amp. Right now I can't report any conclusions. This way it all depends completely on the Clean Sense setting that you have.
Using the +6dB setting that you ckemper suggested the volume difference at maximum settings for a Profile that has gain at 4.4 value between the Maxon and the Kemper Drive is huge.
Are you sure you didn't mean -6 dB?
I think I still have a lot to learn about Clean Sense and the way to take complete advantage of it.
My way of thinking would be that Clean Sense is made to adapt to different guitars, but as soon as I put a pedal in front and rise the volume then I get a different response like I would with a higher output guitar. And that was what led me to think that probably the way of making things even was to use the overdrive pedal in an "intended for this use" Distortion Loop. With the results I already told.
Right now I would not know what settings use to try and make a list of presets for the community to use and get similar results with their setups.
The Clean Sense does exactly what you describe.
It levels your guitar on the input. However, it cannot tell whether it is a pure guitar or an overdrive in the line. Therefore the ouput level of the OD is affected as well. But this should not be an issue.
Next topic: the volume control of any Profiler effect spans +- 24 dB, which is a lot.
If this is driven into clean devices such as a clean amp or even no amp, your speakers would explode (when set to +24 dB). This is why the boost is scaled down in purpose.
Now when you turn your amp gain a bit higher than zero (something that you would also do on a tube amp), maybe to 2.0 or higher, then the full boost into the distortion is possible. And then you will experience that the Profilers volume boost goes beyond most OD pedals.
And that‘s what is crucial: Boost into the amp distortion.
I really like the new, less compressed, feel. Playing through a 1x12 open cab Kemper kone speaker. Only tried at home at bedroom volume so far so good. As always I'm so impressed by the Kemper team. /Hans Jakobsson Umeå Sweden
I don‘t want to disappoint you, but we have not included means for a less compressed feel, that couldn‘t be achieved by other classical methods such as reducing amp gain.
"Are you driving a distorting amp?": I get higher volume with the Maxon on the loop, both with clean and distorted amps.
This is what I don‘t understand.
I cannot see a way how you would vary the volume of a (significantly) distorted amp by swapping the OD, or changing the volume of the OD.
The distortion of the amp would compress (sic!) the volume differences, but response with a different level of distortion.
In the range over 0 to +5 the volume still is too low compared to the real pedal. I guess there where no changes here, as the change log only mentions values below 0.
Please explain „volume still too low“.
Are you driving a distorting amp?
Please use your Maxon in front of the Profiler (Input) and set „Clean Sens“ to +6 dB for the duration of the A/B comparison, to match the situation.
hey everyone, disclaimer upfront: i'm currently visiting the elders and only took the toaster with me not the expression pedal so i can't really try anything out right now. but there is one thing that has been buggin me ever since i got the kemper but i always forgot to post about it.
i have a Dunlop Crybaby which i bought i think sometime in the late 80's or early nineties. at some point i swapped the switch for a true bypass switch (i'm the kind of guy who ALWAYS forgets to unplug the jack so pretty much everytime i wanted to use it the battery was empty, that pretty much was the only reason i went for the true bypass so i can still play even with an empty battery) and nowadays i have a power supply so i could stop polluting the planet with empty 9V batteries. I'm not a pedal nerd so i don't know if that particular model is special/different or if the true bypass mod changed sth.
thing is when i dial up the crybaby preset of the wah stomp it's not even close to my old baby, the range, the sound, the attack all feels completely wrong. at one point i spent a day trying out all the other kemper wah presets and playin with the dials and just couldn't get anywhere i liked with it (to be fair i've never been a fan of any other wah than the crybaby). when i plug in the real baby it's instant bliss, despite the crappy mechaniscs of the foot pedal. i have this really nice korg XVP20 expression pedal for the kemper and i love it as a volume or morph pedal but i just can't get any wah going that i dig. i'm tempted to get one of these crappy mission kemper pedals cause it looks similarly cheap as the crybaby mechanics .. maybe it's just muscle memory habit that's the problem or the fact that i've been playin with it for 30 years and am so honed in to the sound and feel of that particular pedal.
i'm gonna look into this a bit more when i'm back home after the holidays but before i forgt again i thought i'd post it here to see if there is someone else with old crybaby syndrom to see if it's even worth tryin. also since i only play at home and i have the crybaby i love it's a bit of a non issue but just out of intellectual curiosity i'd thought i'd ask if anyone managed to get a convincin crybaby to work on the K.
You should achieve the same sound with the „Cry“ preset.
Set the Mode to „On“ in case you don‘t want the auto-engage.
Check in the System or Pedals menu, that your expression pedal sweeps through the whole span.
Otherwise press „Calibrate“ and sweep.
You will probably have to increase the „Volume“ of the „Cry“ preset to match the gain, when the wah is engaged.
Tell us your results.
hi, was this min setting preset for TS808 ever added?
Don‘t know if it was added to the package.
But just take the 808 Mid preset and turn down Drive to 2.5.
This is the equivalent for the TS808 Drive turned to zero.
I don't think I'm experiencing the change in volume and boost/attenuation setting for distortion pedals.
I've set up slots 1 and 2 in a Performance.
Settings are identical except for Kemper Drive Volume.
Rig: JW LoneStar Cln1 DI-1 (from Rig Exchange)
Effect in B (before the AMP) is the Kemper Drive
- Drive 5.3
- Tone 5.0
- Definition 6.5
- Slim Down 0.0
- Mix 100%
- Volume 0 (slot 1) / 4.5 (slot 2)
The Profiles in the slots are identical except I have the Kemper Drive set up - one with volume zero, the other with volume +4.5.
When I switch between slots 1 and 2, I can hear the difference in the tone, but there's no difference in the volume (looking at the meters on my mixer).
Should I do something differently to hear the difference?
General question: Is there a switch to enable/disable this new volume/boost/compensation feature?
Suppose I had set up Profiles to work with a FOH or DAW settings - will the new feature require changes to the FOH/DAW?
When your amp is already distorting, then you hear a change in distortion, not in volume boost.
any reason for this ?
changed: Tuner and Harmonic Pitch display keys in B instead of #
99% of all tuners in the world working with #.
It seems obvious to me that modern tuners dedicated to electric guitarists strongly lean towards the „b“ choice.
I have a hard time to find „#“ tuners in this domain. And it totally makes sense to me. That‘s why we have changed it.
