And here we go again, they call it Amp Clone, we call it profiling.
Actually I use the foot controller expression inputs only and forgot that the KPA has two expression inputs on the back, so a second expression pedal could be used for volume.
I would suggest you have a look at the two pedal setup on page 140 of the manual.
The Kemper has some witchcraft, page 134 of the manual will tell you more than I can.
You can get a single expression pedal to control wah, morph and pitch, just a matter of having the wah and pitch deactivated if you want just morph as an example.
Volume can not be involved unfortunately so you would need a second pedal, if you don’t have the foot controller a dedicated volume pedal between guitar and input would be the answer.
For things like rotary speed which is not continuous but simply slow and fast an assigned foot controller button or external foot switch is best, I suppose the toe switch on your pedal could also do this, not sure never tried.
Yeah I couldn’t fathom ditching the Kemper for a Tone X, 2 different things with a common tone source.
I have an interest though and are thinking of placing the Tone X in the loop of a L6 HX effects, could be a good compact and capable digitally mini board, just a different tool, no way am I selling the KPA though.
I find it very profile dependent, and yes their are some great tones cleaning up the dirty ones.
Not cheap but if I was in he
my Kemper Rack uses a rear rack panel that has all the necessary connectors on, including the remote ethercon. Not only is it easy to connect, but it relieves any stress on the Kemper's rear panel connectors (they just run from the Kemper to the rear of the panel), and if somebody trips on a cable it may damage or tear out the panel connector, but not the Kemper side connector (and the rear panel connectors are pretty easy to replace).
if your toaster is mounted in a rack (using a rack tray), perhaps a rear rack panel would work for you.
oh that got my geek radar started!
Not cheap but includes a much better cable.
Just mess things up.
You have done it?
Just to wrap up this thread, I delayed sending the KPA in because I was having some time off work and I wanted the Kemper around.
But off it went early February for its repair and came back 3 weeks later, it was like receiving a brand new unit couldn’t be happier.
Just once again I want to acknowledge the wonderful guys at Kemper, my forum reading guardian angel and a shout out to Scott Vinnicombe the service manager at Innovative Music in Melbourne.
So has anyone put the ToneX pedal into the Kemper effects loop?, will this give us some sort of dual amp capabilities? Or just mess things up?
I´ve tested the ToneX Pedal a few hours at a 2X12" with Greenback/V30 powered by an older Crown poweramp.
As assumed the sound was really great and also the virtuall speaker simulations are very useable to shape the sound!
Of course the most of the standard presets are not really that good but there are a bunch of user presets in the net that are working great!
I used a Comford as well as a Friedman and a Fender Twin profile for my tests.
The Pedal works really nice standalone but can also be driven with pedals in front of it.
What makes me send it back though are:
No editing possible with the help of the software
Reverb and compressor are not individually switchable but must be switched on or off via preset change.
No effect loop which makes the use of delay/chorus etc. almost impossible without external reverb.
No XLR output but only line level - so you should use a DI box if possible.
Due to the lack of reverb-compressor switches, three channels per memory bank are too few.
Overall, the ToneX pedal leaves me with an ambivalent impression. Great sounds but as a concept not thought through to the end.
Thanks for your opinion, yeah I think the lack of effects loop and the lack of sound manipulation is what is going to bug me. I’ve gotten so use to tailoring profiles to guitars via definition, clarity and many others but I think I’ve been spoiled by the KPA.
Having said that just before writing this I was playing the pushed oldie preset (57 Deluxe) on my Stat with a bit of plate reverb on the iPad app via headphones and it was very delicious 😋
Postmen has ringed the bell today at noon and brought me the ToneX Pedal
My first impressions are very positive from the sound perspective. Very dynamic and great sounds (over the headphone)!
I also have tried the software and a big weakness is the fact that you cannot dial in the parameter of the pedal at the PC!
Unfortunately I have only a Boss Katana 100 combo here at home and plugged in into that thing it sound a little bit boxy (I assume is the speaker of the Katana). Tomorrow I will bring the Pedal to my rehersal room and give it a try direct into the PA as well as at a 2X12" trough an power amp.
Please report back would love to hear your opinion.
This has been raised before, mainly because Quad reference it.
As an IT skeptic ( having bene in the industry for 30 years), these are great IT buzz words, that have very specific applications and/or rebranding of existing development techniques. AI was always referenced in the early chess computers with a fear that they would reach consciousness from their 64k of RAM...
Not really sure what I would want an amp to learn in the sense of an output sound...certainly wouldn't want it learning anything from my playing...
Marketing shash in my mind...happy to be persuaded otherwise...
Yep, absolute marketing hogwash, A.I is just a buzzword when it comes to this stuff, you want it to follow a set of instructions not screw with it.
Yeah it’s know official, so many people have asked Kemper to do this, doesn’t interest me personally but if you have hung around here for any time, missed opportunity, maybe?
No effects loop, big miss, the YouTube paid for mafia are salivating, this is better 😂
Another thing the A.I as claimed like the Quad, to me it would have to learn someway, never any explanation, until then marketing crap to me.
full? Geese, add the ones you actually use or like and add to the favourite file and there is an option to delete all but favourites.
tell u what pay the asking amount and I’ll include shipping to Brisbane
id imagine $20 would cover it
Sydney, can ship 😄
