    I suspect that there is some sort of mis-wiring in the output jack. Have you tried both speakers as the first in line, feeding the other?

    Do you have a powered Kemper?

    Thanks Mats! Even after having gone to the same NAMM show you have, I read your report. It seems that I don't have the same level of concentration or curiosity you do.......that, and I prefer to play golf in the morning and just swing by the show in the afternoon. :/:D

    on my variax, I dont feel ANY diff in any tuning,, so I know it can be done,just want to downsize,,

    On the Variax each string is processed individually. I read somewhere years ago that each string has the processing power of the original pod to perform the functions that it needs to change the sounds.

    I don’t think that’s necessarily correct. If I understand what CK is saying the imprints will sound like the original speaker in that cabinet. For example, a V30 in a Mesa Thiele will sound Duffy to a V30 in a Marshall or Fender cab. Therefore, a V30 imprint will sound like a V30 in the same cabinet. Rather than the Konrad needing a specific style of cabinet to sound like a V30.


    That seems to be the idea but how it works in practice remains to be seen. Given Kemper’s track record though I have high hopes for this ?

    I agree with you. However few Oxford, Celestion Blue, or other iconic speakers are used in a ported cabinet. So, as I mentioned, they would not necessarily sound bad. Rather, different than intended. Since the speaker makes more difference in the overall sound than the amp driving it, changing the response will affect the way the profile is presented.


    In other words, don't expect that a great profile of an old Fender tweed amp will sound as authentic with the Kone in a ported cabinet, as opposed to a sealed Kabinet.

    As I understand your explanations, it's no Problem to Change from the EVM12L in my Thiele-1x12"-cabinet to the Kemper-Kone. It will be very interesting for me to compare the result to a Kemper-Kabinett.

    I think that due to the port in the cabinet, the speaker response will be different than what the Imprint was designed for. As a result, the sound will differ from the ideal that Kemper designed to. This does not mean that it would sound bad, per se, but less like the chosen speaker.

    I have stated before, and remain convinced that the ability to morph between 2-rigs will become a reality with the current hardware.

    I actually think it could be done....whether it would infringe on the Tone Dexter patents is another matter.


    The tone Dexter uses a microphone input from an external mic as it's reference, not noise as the Kemper does, so I don't think it would be *that* difficult for the Kemper to do.

    I think I would like to see morphing between 2 different amps ?


    That would provide a fine solution for 80% of us.
