Are there plans to let the KPA act as a digital slave?
I already have a studio setup with several digial devices and of course one master.
I´d really like to connect the KPA via S/PDIF, but as long as it insists on being the master, I cannot do it.
You used just one Kemper preset, right?
Yes, with the same Kemper setting phases are correct most of the time. I had it out of phase once, should have made a screenshot....
anyway, I set my audio interface´s latency to 25ms, which is higher than what I ever had to use.
I recorded 6 tracks with different Kemper Amps, 4 in phase, 2 out of phase.
here is a 4-track recording from always the same source track!
the two above are recored with one Kemper preset, the two below with another one.
in example 1 you can see the first two tracks with the one Kemper preset in perfect phase, the third one with the other Kemper preset also in phase, and the fourth one out of phase
example 2 is some seconds later of the same recording. suddenly all four tracks are in phase!
with the same source track the recorded tracks surely have the same phase!
but to answer your question:
no matter which cab I dial in, there´s always phase problems - even with the SAME cab on both tracks
but check this out: using the SAME AMP twice delivers two track not correctly in phase!
as I said, the results are somewhat random!
big disappointment, because I was just starting to reamp a big CD production.....not with Kemper
same problem here
one source track, reamped with two different Kemper sounds -> phase issues!
Please do not question the way the initial poster and I work. I for one do it like this for years, to blend different amp tones together for the final track.
Having a deep look into a fully zoomed in waveform in cubase I see very very strange results - the problems are obvious:
one passag in phase, next one out of phase. phase-correlations change all the time randomly.
with the same source track this is an absolute no go!
I had never problems like these using VST Plugins or different real amps. once the recorded reamped tracks are moved, so that they are phase-alligned, they stay in phase all the time. Now with the Kemper tracks, there´s no chance to get them alligned, because the original phase behaviour is not printed 1:1 to the recording....something in the box brings a ramdom factor to the game....
what´s goining on here?
Cubase 6.5 ->
steinberg MR816 Firewire interface mono out ->
Radial reamp Box ->
Chandler Germanium Preamp ->
steinberg MR816 Firewire interface in ->
my trusty practice amp from the 80s is now your practice amp
didn´t get crazy about mic placement, just some quick profiling. results are pretty close.
Yeah, the Diezels are great here. Since you did ask for comments, I will say that, to me, the Bogner sounds very thin overall compared to the depth/quality of the Diezel profiles. Is it the same mic setup? Either way, thanks so much for these!
yeah thanks, that´s what I think now, too
the Heil mic ist great for transparent hi gain Sounds, but obviously too harsh for slightly dirty cleans or for open cabs.
this will not be my last profiling session. gotta record the Bogner with a ribbon mic. got great results with it in the past!
a 1970 JMP Marshall is waiting for profiling, too....
thank a lot for giving it a try, y´all
feel free to grab my first profiles:
-Diezel Herbert, Diezel 4x12"cab w/Celestion G12K100, Heil PR40 and Shure SM57 mics
-Diezel VH4, Diezel 4x12"cab w/Celestion V40, Heil PR40 mic
-Bogner Ecstasy, Bogner 2x12" open cab w/Grennbacks, Heil PR40 mic
comments and suggestions appreciated!
