With the rubber feet the Kemper doesn't fit.
I have this case, but also have as a 4 HE and 5 HE unit because of the the depth of 23 cm.
At the back, the Kemper has 28mm space, measured at the switch/pedal connectors, with stick out the most.
At the front, the Kemper knobs almost hit the outside. In other words, if I were to put the case on the front onto the floor (without the front lid on), the knobs do not hit the floor.
The lids have 34mm space inside.
So 28+34=62mm space at the back .
I cannot seem to attach pictures from my phone here, but if you hit me up on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/tom.vandijk.35) I will send you the pictures.
Just this afternoon I took my Kemper Rack Pre to the rehearsal room to try out my Mesa Boogie 295 simul class poweramp. Connected a Mesa Standard 4x12 V30 cab.
The idea was to go tru some favorite profiles stored in the Kemper, disabling the eq.
I just ripped the Uberschall profiles you uploaded in 2017, these are so great!
So this evening I browsed the forum on Uberschall profiles and saw you just uploaded some new Uber profiles.
Downloaded them, thanx!!!!!
I use a cheap Boss FC50 midi switcher. It only has Midi Out but the 1-5 presets match the 5 amps/presets in a single Perform mode. I do not need more and the FC50 is cheap but reliable.
Is it possible to select the KPA tuner like you would select an amp+effects? And store the tuner as a perform preset?
Palmmutes lowend kill midsized/highs live.
Someone who is interested in buying my Kemper. He now said it was probably the next software update (he mentioned version 4).
Please close the topic, sorry about the question.
I got an question about my Kemper how old it is, because ...... here it comes..... he heard in a Namm video from 2 years ago they (Kemper) changed some hardware??????
Can someone confirm wether this is true or bullshit?
I have the unpowered Rack, powered with a Matrix GT1000FX running in bridge mode 1000 watts at 8 Ohm, connected to two Marshall 4x12's (together 8 Ohm).
It's not loud enough............ It's loud, just not loud enough for a thrashband with an insane loud drummer.
This is just stupid, but it is. We also have 5150's with are so much more louder. Settings on the Kemper are fine, the Matrix also has lights that light up if max power is reached.
When the Kemper is connected to the power amp of the 5150 it is so much louder and brutal. And we use a lot of mid's in the guitars.
I have to say our old Marshall 4x12 (gt75 speakers) aren't the loudest. If we would use Engl ore Mesa 4x12''s with V30's the Matris would be sufficient.
So we will be using our 5150's as power amp for the Kemper.
(and yes, we use ear protection)
Love to have a MBC to tame the palm mutes a bit.
A lot of free profiles do not sound great as a whole, but sometimes the cab part just buries the great sound of the amp profile underneath it, hope this makes sense.
The way I go thru the free profiles on RE is this:
- Connect the Monitor Out (cab off) to my power amp (Peavey 60/60, but recently a Matrix GT1000FX) and a random guitar cab (my Mesa rectocab V30 4x12).
- Do NOT connect your studiospeakers or FRFR system to the Main Out, we don't wanna hear the cab profile.
- Now scroll thru the free profiles. If you hear (thru your guitar cab) a great sounding profile, save it.
- Turn your studiospeakers/FRFR on and add your favorite cab profile. Mine is Till's Cablab 031, bit bright so you gotta bring the treble/presence a bit down, but it sounds a lot like what I'm hearing from my Mesa 4x12. I bought Till's Cablab because these are great and easy to tune/adjust. Lots of choices.
Recently I discovered another great free profile following these same steps above. It's a Bogner Uberschall from BulldogXTRM, very tight and dynamic. I backed down the bass almost 2 db, but it's a great profile and stays very clear and tight if you play with very little gain. I play it with the Till's Cablab 031 over the studiospeakers.
Another one worth to mention is "PP 5153 Stealth 100S" by "PETE POTENS" again in the Rig Exchange.
This one is a merged profile, use it with your favorite cab and it rocks.
I just love the PP 5153 Stealth 100S" by "PETE POTENS in the Rig Exchange.
This ia a great dynamic profile for metal players. It is my most favorite profile. It sounds amazing tru my tube poweramp+4x12, but also with Till's Cablab 031 over studiospeakers.
i can't imagine it would sound "the same", but it could end up sounding bigger. I've only just got my Kemper, but I think they're going to be happier with the power amp and cab. The PA will generally give you more dispersed sounds, but in my short Kemper experience, you lose some of the bark and focused punch of a tube power amp into 4x12 guitar cabinet. So dispersion can sound bigger, or muddier and softer. Just my 2 cents.
Quick thought: are there any audio rental places you could rent a PA from for a night and try it out at your rehearsal space?
My bad, I just changed my question. I wanted to know if a solidstate amp (normally used for the PA) would sound the same driving our 4x12's.
No offence to the non-metal players but I would like advice from those who need the brutal wall of sound, in the rehearsal room and live.
My situation now:
I'm the bass player/singer in DeadHead, a thrash metal band from Holland. We just finished the recording and mix of a new album (guitars=Kemper). I own a Kemper and want my both 2 guitar players to use it. I will probably buy another one because I really want my band to sound good live. Both my guitar player were skeptical about the Kemper but after playing it they really like it playing it trough tube power amps and 4x12's.
I have the non powered version and will buy a non powered too.
We love the Kemper with a tube power amp (from 5150, but also have 2 x 19" Peavey 60/60 amps).
I want to travel light. Having the Kemper/wireless/poweramp in 1 case would be one heavy case. I could keep the Kemper/wireless and Peavey 60/60 in 2 separate cases, but then I would have to connect the Kemper to the power amp. This is easy but I would want the rig to be lighter and more compact.
I'm leaning on buying a PA power amp (2 EH) with loads of power. Those are 2 EH and light and would keep my case small as 6EH total.
What bothers me is: would a powerful PA amp (driving our 4x12's) give me the same massive wall of sound as a tube power amp? Will it have the same feel?
Nothing locked but the input.
I will open a support ticket this weekend.
It occurred only with this one profile (wich I love), a Sinmix 5150 with a free Marshall Green pack. I have the Producer Pack 1 and a lot of Sinmix's profiles.
Tried to replicate the same issue with profiles from Sinmix and other sellers, no troubles.
I now pushed the amp button, and replaced the amp profile with the original Sinmix 5150 profile from Sinmix. Problem solved!!.
I think something went wrong with editing the original profile.
Anyway, still a happy camper here!.
I've read the manual, but can't seem to get ris of this weird issue.
I have no remote, or pedal connected to the back. I have only the main outs connected to studiomonitors.
Notices the issue in OS 4, now in OS 5, same issue.
In Browser mode: I have a profile (5150 live) I use a lot. Tight palmmute, not too much gain, you get the picture. The next profile is a Deathmetal profile with redicilous amounts of gain. The profile before the 5150 live is a normal marshall profile. Lets say the marshall = #1, the 5150 live = #2 and the deatmetal profile = #3.
Here it comes... When i go from #1 to #2, the sound from the 5150 seems normal. When I go to #3, and back to #2....the 5150 sound totally different with loads of gain. It's like #2 and #3 are blended. I've renamed the 5150 profile so it would have a different position in the browser list. Same happens. The profiles before or after the list seem to affect my 5150 profile.
Edit: The same happens with Rig Manager.
I have some maps with different kind of profiles in Rig Manager. When I click on a bass profile with fuzz i hear a fuzzy bassound like it was intended. If I then click on my 5150 profile (with I just imported to the same map) the 5150 sounds awful with some fuzz in it. Going to a other profile and back to the 5150 the 5150 sounds totally different again.
I presume it has to do with morphing.
I read the manual but can't seem to get git of the issue.
Can someone tell me how to get totally rid of Morphing??
I am currently reamping for my bands new album. For rythmguitars I always have to dip some of the 200 hrz and 300-450 hrz. This cleans up the guitars a lot, otherwise guitars sound honky/nasal.
But the same profiles with the added eq sound a bit too thin on a Peaveyy 60/60 tubeamp and 4x12 rectocab V30. The normal eq on monitor Out doesn't help me much. So for me a Parametric EQ on both Monitor and Main Out would be great.
Love the Kemper still!!!!!!
Currently recording a new album for my thrash metal band DeadHead with your JCM800 2205 profile. I replaced the cab with Till's 4x12 Greenbacks. Use the Kempers Green Scream (drive:0, Tone:2,4) but without also sounds great. Dipped some 200 and 450 hrz with eq.
I have a Peavey tube power amp + Mesa 4x12 V30, which sounds the same as playing over my studiomonitors, side by side.
Oh, and this jcm800 profile is the most quiet compared to all the other commercial and free jcm800 profiles. (I've tried 100+ for the new album).
