I love to download these. the link doesn't work. What should I be looking for in Rig Exchange?
I have over 1000 cabinets on my Kemper. This morning, I noticed that every one is duplicated (doubled). A feature I'd like to see in the next version of 'Rig Manager' would be the ability to manage your cabinets.
That way I could delete all duplicates or rename my cabs for an easier recognition.
Just a thought. Anyone else agree?
I have a Les Paul Traditional 2015 with G-Force and of course the brass nut. The guitar is now sent to my local dealer for replacing the brass nut with new nickel plated nut. I guess brass isn't good material for this particular models with auto tuners. It's just too soft. The brass nut has grooves after playing the guitar for about 5 months. It causes a pinging noise when bending the strings. It's a common issue and as far as I know Gibson replaces brass nuts with the new one.
However I am considering to put one day normal tuners and replacing the nut with bone nut. I'm very interested how does it look on your LP Studio. Did you put a normal bone nut? I mean was it from a store or did your luthier made it especially for your guitar? I think the nut in 2015 models is a little bit wider than older nuts in Les Pauls. I would be very grateful if you could make a photo of your new nut in LP and put here a link.
P.S. Sorry for my English. I'm not fluent
Sorry it's taken so long to reply to you, I suffer from a spinal issue and I've been pretty bad recently (and also in hospital).
Go to my website to see the pics : http://www.livewirestudio.co.uk
go to the 'LINKS' page, then select the link 'MY 2015 USA GIBSON LES PAUL STUDIO CUSTOMISATION'. The pics of the work I have done / had done are there.
Hope this helps.
Hi. I purchased a new 2015 Gibson Les Paul Studio in Wine Red just over 2 weeks ago.
I love it! Well, now I do. The G-Force tuning system isn't very good. Re-stringing is a pain in the harris and the brass nut seems to be made of chocolate.
The wood and tone however, that's a whole different story. I owned a 2008 model Gibson Les Paul Studio and it played and sounded amazing. Probably the best guitar I have ever played. The 2015 Studio I now own (IMHO) sounds & plays better & I love the tone of my new Les Paul, the fatter neck is an issue but I have great sausage hands and it really suits me.
Obviously, I replaced the G-Force tuning system with original Gibson vintage Kluson tuners and the AWFUL brass / chocolate nut has been replaced with a bone nut (Private luthier work, only £25).
It both plays, feels & sounds AMAZING!
I was full of so much hope that the G-Force tuning system was going to be amazing. Unfortunately, after a week I couldn't stand the poor, poor tuning stability anymore.
However, the guitar is now killer and sounds god like through my Kemper. A great compliment.
THINK CAREFULLY before you buy your new Gibson Les Paul Studio 2015. You will probably want to replace the tuners & the nut.

Good luck and I hope you enjoy.
As many of you are aware, there are a few first build era KPA's out there that have an issue with the rotary knob LEDs dying.
I know you can send the unit back to Kemper and they will repair the issue for you. Unfortunately, that is a cost I can't afford at the moment.
It's not a serious issue, as my KPA still functions and I still love it. It's just a little niggle. You spend a considerable amount of money and want the unit to be perfect.
As I (like many people), use my KPA for my business. I'd rather not be without it for 2 weeks of more.
Does anyone know if this is an issue I could tackle myself, as my KPA is not in warranty and I have a good, solid knowledge of PCB's & micro electronics.
I know that sounds like a silly statement, as if I have knowledge, why am I asking?
Just wanted to know if the KPA is easy to open / repair or should I keep saving for the repair?
It is a tad frustrating. I have Windows 8.1 on my Mac, running through Parallels. I would rather not have Windows on my Mac at all, but I will deal until the boffins FINALLY (hint) get the mac version done.
How about they release both at the same time!
I'm toying with the idea of selling my 2010 USA Parker Nitefly M.
Its a great guitar, but I'm more of a Gibson kinda guy.
Anyone know what sort of money they go for? I've looked on eBay, They vary from £600 - £900 (UK)
Any help would be appreciated.
When I first got my KPA, I bought it second hand from a great guy near Guildford.
Listening to it at his place, I can't say that I was too impressed. (I think he had is guitar tuned to Zbm diminished or P2) NASTY metal tuning!
After returning home, I reset the unit to factory settings, updated the firmware and held my breath. I had just sold my AXE FX Ultra and 11 Rack for this unit. Will it pay off?
YES! was the answer. I have owned this unit since August and there if absolutely no looking back.
After profiling my 6 amps (Mesa MKIV, Budda, JCM 800, Orange Dark Terror, Vox AC30 & Fender Bassman) plus, my mates AXE FX II, I knew that I had one hell off a product.
I use the KPA in a pro studio, (http://www.redemptionstudios.org.uk) with clients always commenting on the accuracy of the tones.
I love it and would never go anywhere else. How far had amp reproduction come on since the Line 6 POD?
A VERY long way. I realise that you can't really compare the KPA and the POD, but hey. This is where we start, what the future holds is anyones guess. I for one am quite excited to be part of the process.
