"welcome" guys. So cool to get together with people from all over the world. btw - I live close to Heide in Northern Germany, a place that is actually closer to Oslo than to Munich.
I have organized all profiles by amp in my computer.
I 've posted similar file including all amps, 1-2 months before, but here is the updated version
"U" = user, "F" = factory.
I have marked my favorites by adding a number to the name. Say I want the rig EVH2 as one of my favs and assign the midi number 012 to it...then I change the rigs name to 012 EVH2 too. That way I find all my midiassigned rigs as a sequence sorted by name. When I like a rig but haven't finally tweaked it yet, I put the number 200 before it's name. That way I can easily find these rigs sorted by name. Think about it. It works well for me.
I was up late last night going through Every Single Factory Rig along with All 58 Pages Of User Uploads trying to whittle the list down to, simply, the profiles that seemed most promising for Crunch Purposes (in the Dream Theatre/djendt sense.)
That's 207 Factory Rigs and another 307 User Uploads for a total of 514 rigs. After a couple more passes of auditioning the ones that made the cut, I ended up with 68 rigs which are undoubtedly going to get whittled down further but I thought I'd pass them along. All I can say is, God Bless IZArc (http://www.izarc.org/) for making such a convenient (and free) tool for editing .kpbackup files. It's really worthwhile, one you've saved out all of your factory backup rigs and cabinets, to edit a .kpabackup file that contains No Rigs and No Cabs in order to keep the Browser in an uncluttered state. Then, you can just import only the rigs & cabs you prefer on the fly... if you don't like 'em you can always just wipe them all out and start over by reloading your empty .kpabackup.
Anyway, here's one person's list of the Better Than Most Hi Gain Rigs So Far:

This reminds of the the current mainstream in many European (American?) public diskussions: A sometimes "off-topic" form of political correctness becomes mandatory and more important than dealing with facts and arguments based on differing assumptions.
Funny that esp. in Germany, which has famous philosophers like Hegel who proposed the thesis/anti-thesis as a necessary method for "dialectic" progress - off mainstream point of views get heavily beaten by the "political correctness watch".
From what I remember Hadley has been a pro-guitarist for many moons. He owns a Kemper - meaning he is interested in the product and is trying to use it in a productive way in his environment.
Before you beat him down step into his shoes and try to see what he is seeing. Then reply with a strong argument if that is not your point of view (like cK did). Arguments can be very sharp or pointed and sometimes even sarcastic, but judging people as trolls because they do not applaude your point of view has become way too easy and common.
BTW - Total satisfaction means "end of all progress".
I dig reading through threads with controversial discussions - as long as the BS is kept away. More often than not both parties have a point.
Hadley I encourage you to continue to share your opinions - maybe offer samples or further explanations of what you do not like. Just because you did - cK replied with a very pointed post, that for itself contains useful background information we might not have otherwise.
By exchanging controversial arguments we can all gain more "in-depth" understanding of this product.
Be good sports guys!
Great to see all you guys 'on the case' - with so much info, I'm sure CK will resolve this soon
Having been in the process of software development myself - I can relate to how difficult testing can become.
Isolating a bug and making it "reproducable"sometimes becomes way more difficult than fixing it afterwards.
TY. Will update tonight.
I have serious intentions to profile my amps (JTM 45, Roadking II, MARK V, Koch) with different cabs and mics at some point, but for now playing with the already provided profiles & rigs plus finding ways to integrate the KPA into my workflow is keeping me quite busy.
I am not a pro - so I usually take it slower a step or two and follow the lead of others to a certain extent.
Let me say this: I really really appreciate the input from you guys around here.
I have been following this from post#1. Great stuff guys, I wish I've had more time to contribute myself.
My question is: Would you suggest to update to 1.0.6? As far as I understand the bug is also in 1.0.4 (which I currently use).
good idea -> in!
good interview - but wish he went a bit more into details.
Yes, great idea!
And in case we press 'lock' for the cab block - then all our rigs are ready for clean out guitar cab usage.
What's going on here?
This board is turning into a "think tank"!
In the absence of a 'complete cab bypass', a workaround Ive been using is to load a 'direct' profile, save the cab (It should actually make no difference whether it is switched on or off) as 'direct' and use this as a blank cab profile. Works very well
an old c-programmers' trick (void) - NICE!
can you post a sample - low level "hizz" clipping noise - it's all just words!
hard to really tell without hearing it.
Will be traveling the "Hansalinie" again soon - probably next week. Will shoot you a pm with my cell# as soon as I know for sure. The 2x12 just ain't as heavy as the 4s and it is still load enough for my living room/home recording "corner". LOL
profiles of a greenback cab. Anyone from northern Germany got one?
Possibly yes. I never had any 2 x 12, but it would be interesting to try. Lets see if we can arrange a "hanseatic corporation" here
i think i wouldnt be the right person to handle those vintage amps since i am more into hi gain and sparkling clean. I would really love to do more cab profiles though, but transporting that Recto 4 x 12 was not really an enjoyable experience.
However i still plan to do profiles of a greenback cab. Anyone from northern Germany got one?
Wouldn't the 2061 fit into that category too?
Got it for my jtm 45.
(I live north from Hamburg)
