Can you replicate it by tweaking the plug in the KPA output socket?
I had huge problems like this for a long while.
Turns out that the SPDIF output socket on the KPA wasn't a good connection to my cable and even a small movement of my KPA caused it to drop out. Sometimes it happened and sometimes not.
I ended up pulling the back off the KPA and bending the connector so it really grabbed the plug...problem solved.
If your's is under warranty, might think twice about doing this.
My band does a song in F and it is impossible for me to play it without a Capod.One gig I decided to use the KPA transpose function and set up a preset with it. Worked a treat.
When the song was over, our band leader kicked off the next song very quickly and it is one I have an opening solo. A bit stressed at the quick start, I went into the solo and yeah, you guessed it, I didn’t switch presets so I was out of key, and because I’d never used the transpose before I kind of forgot about it.
I looked over at our bass player who was panicking a bit and tweaking his tuning….( I found out later that he thought someone had messed with his bass).
It took him about a minute, but he did actually retune his bass to match the pitch of my out of tune guitar.
But the real horror was yet to come.
After about 3 minutes I realised what I had done and looked sheepishly at the bass player and also realised that our harp player was getting ready for his solo. Of course he couldn’t play it with the harp that he had so I had to communicate that we were out of key and for him NOT to play.
The audience didn’t notice any of this and we laughed a lot about it after I’d bought all the band a couple of beers.
I haven’t used the transpose on stage since!
Just started using a Wampler Dual Fusion and loving it in front of my KPA
I had a similar problem as lightbox For about 2 years I had to twist the plug around to make contact.
Eventually I opened my toaster up and slightly bent part of the socket to make better contact.
That was about 3 years ago...had NO problem since.
YMMV and I wouldn't do this if you are in warranty or unsure what to do.
Nicely mixed Per. Good balance and clarity.
Good idea, thanks Burkhard. Not sure where my problem solving skills disappeared to...it looks so obvious now.
Here is my support email FYI
Had a small issue with 7.1.2
Still have it with 7.1.3
Nothing connected to KPA (Head)
Here is a set of steps taken:
A: Set the Performance number and shut down the KPA with Chicken knob
B: After a few seconds, start up the KPA directly into Performance mode and observe what Performance number it has started in.
C: Select a different Performance using up or down buttons and observe the Performance number
I did this a few times and here are some results
A B C
1 : 1 : 3 using up button once
3 : 3 : 1 using down button once
5 : 5 : 4-3-1 using down button three times
A couple of times I started the KPA up and Performance #1 was selected, even though the sounds from Perf #2 were actually playing. When I pressed the up button once, it jumped to Perf #3.
It seems that everything is OK once this “jump" has been made.
I reported this to support some time ago. Was doing it to me sometimes on 7.1.22. Just updated to 7.2.2 and it still does it.
I notice it around performance 1-5, but maybe that's because I spend most of my time there.
It seems that once it has done it, it doesn't do it again until a power cycle...and not always.
Geesh Per, you are prolific in your writing, some great ideas too. I'm lucky to get even one per couple of MONTHs at best and only if I'm totally focussed with nothing else to do.
Really close to the tone that's in my head but can never get!
BTW, that bass rattles my monitors haha!
Makes me think of a band I used to head-bang to in the early 70's. They were called Hawkwind and had a couple of UK hits.
I found myself doing the same to yours, but your melody parts took it to the next level so I had to stop shaking my head and listen!
if they'd done what you were doing on top of their grooves, they might have lasted a bit longer!
+1 on this.
Mine is set to Git/Master Mono and often when I start up I get a fart from my Git output. Lasts about a second and sounds like an "init" rig. When I start up I go straight to Performance mode.
Doesn't seem to happen on shutdown.

Not sure how you checked, and maybe you've already tried this, but if not....
You should be able to check if the Mac is seeing the Kemper without Rig Manager.
If you go to "About This Mac" and look at the USB section you should be able to find something similar to this (which is from my Mac Pro)
If you can't, as previously mentioned by Ophidia make sure you are connected to the correct USB port on the Kemper...the square one, not the flat one...and try another cable.

So are you returning your 2019 MacBook Pro or your Kemper??
If I delete all my rigs - will it delete those of the same name from the 10 performances I keep. I think not as they become a different copy, but wanted to check.
You are correct, these are separate and will not be deleted if you delete from the browse pool.
As Zappledan says, don't forget make a copy/backup first. I usually do both a copy to a new folder AND a backup....
OK, thanks guys...I also thought there was a repository for old versions but couldn't find it.
