kemper replied it's best to untick monitor cab off & sweetening for high gain. I reckon Kone is fab on low gain and crunches
sent you a private message
Carol is one of the great songwriters, there can be no doubt!
yep this is what you call songwriting , and her singing talent as a soul sister is also on par , loved the way her voice distorts on this live show. Pure talent
Anyone knows the kind of vocal mike she's using ? I'm intrigued , it sounds very sensitive
66 AC 50 N2 is the free rig , with tweaks on the gain and amp section
Hi, my scarlett 6i6 focusrite is dead Changing the power supply did not help.
I need a new one with the mandatory specs :
- must have spdif
- needs to have handle USB connexion thru an USB hub , as I plug my PC to a docking station
- can handle direct monitoring
I had the Roland quad capture in the past and the 6i6 and BOTH had serious issues getting/staying connected 100% of the time , I had multiple problems with them. Pbs were solved when I plug direct to the PC usb.
So if you have a laptop ( mine is a thinkpad) on win10 , a dock , and a great soundcard let me know.
Thx in advance !
yes, direct into the kone is great. i briefly hooked up the kpa to studio monitors out curiosity, quickly changed back to the kone
I usually start setting up the recording tone first , then dial the Kone for pure inspirational monitoring, best of 2 worlds. Sometimes it sounds so good on the Kone , that I want to mike the output
Having a cab with Kone in the studio really helps for monitoring all sorts of instruments here : fender rhodes , basses , they all sound good & inspirational , unlike the stereo monitors , that deliver pure tones , but lack the feel of an amp in the room.
would this be the TJ AC50?
Yep , the freebies.
On my strat : Crunches to die for, huge basses , chimey highs, pot & attack reactive ...
I had one the closest Hendrix tone I never heard from my KPA. I could spend all day long playing an E chord and be happy with the growl
I hope someone will profile other 60's era voxes , like the super beatles, they sound really fantastic.
My scarlett power supply went dead this week, and without a sound-card, I'm bound to the traditional approach.
Using my KPA direct to the Kone for the simple pleasure to play live in my studio, without going to the PC & sound-card turned out to be a very enjoyable experience.
I've been sitting each day on my huge 2x12 cab ( Kone equiped) , I can feel the basses of the Kone right under me , and enjoy every chord with some full details , loudness, chime and screams.
Getting back to the old way I played guitar in the past is pure satisfaction, I'm so glad the KPA+Kone can do this in such a great way, and every single person listening to this AC50 profile on Oxford 12L6 in my room comes to the conclusion that I've a killer tone , like a multi thousand dollar amp. Switching imprints always delivers , impressive.
I must say I'm much more impressed (sic) by the imprints than by the new drives , Kone is incredible.
Thx Mr Kemper for achieving this , getting the good ole amp in my room , giving us a killer recording solution etc !!
Focusrite failed , but kemper rocks
Just my 2 cts
another Silver Sky but this time with the maple neck.
Great ! did you notice much tonal diff. vs the rosewood neck ?, I plan to get a white one with a maple neck.
I also wonder the neck feels to you , which kind of profile is it ?
beautiful lullaby , very nice breaks and overall tone Per, sounds a bit like an Air track to me
However, it does not contradict our approach and what we claim.
Hello M Kemper , I also watched Nighlight great vid & curves :
while I really dig the amount of controls , would it be possible to add a bass & hi shift ( like in the cab settings ) knob on the KD ?
it wouldn't contradict your approach , even if hi shift would be a bit redundant with tone control but let's say one knob controls the frequency while the other , the amount of dB boost/reducing ?
I'm more a natural drive vs pedals , but I still use a BB clone and some fuzzes in front of my KPA, didn't found the right settings on the KD yet.
Thanks for getting the direct feedback from the beta testers .
I'll let the music speak as we're not supposed to talk politics in this gentle forum
this one is from 2 years ago , one of the 1st song where I began singing.
this one is from 2 months ago, the beginning of the end
hell yeah , welcome back US folks
KD vs Blues Breaker, I’ve noticed that the BB has a warm subtle bottom end, that I was not able to reproduce with KD parameters available. This is perceivable specially using the neck and middle pickup, in the bass strings, playing either with fingers or pick. It’s not so evident in the treble strings, though.
- KD’s King and BB beta settings have the drive maxed out. The KOT and BB setting I like has the drive/gain at 3 o’clock, by reducing the KD drive it gets more treble and more transparent than the actual KOT setting.
I highly second these facts, I often use my BB clone on a low drive setting ( around 11 o'clock) and I also miss some crunch in the tone. I couldn't really replicate the tone of my BB with the available knobs.
Dear M Kemper , please add a setting with lower drive on the BB.
I'm into horns these days , and this one got my attention.
It's a live take with very dry audio , but it's really good to see some seasoned musicians grooving together on a funky track :
Good luck to you & all Irish folks , 6 weeks looks so long, but it's just the time to write & record a full album . That's what we did to pass the time with a welsh friend locked with me & my child at home in march. Best use of our time and some stories to tell to our future grand children
Thx for the pack Mick:)
Great job , sounds really good
Is the Un-Boost similar to the great 'underdrive' mad professor pedal ?
Some nice guitar crunchy tones Per, glad to see you're back to recording. Really dug the verb on the drums
