    Hallo JoshiRocks,


    Hall, Delay und andere Effekte werden beim Profilen nicht übertragen so weit ich weiß. Die hat der Profilproduzent also nachträglich hinzugefügt. Damit das funktioniert, sollte der Effektkram (zumindest diese Sorte von Effekten) aus dem Kemperbaukasten kommen, sonst kann man ja nichts anpassen, Ich wäre da anderenfalls ziemlich irritiert. Klar, die Gitarre ist auch ein Punkt. Nach meiner bisherigen Erfahrung sind die Finger aber wichtiger als die Gitarre. Natürlich klingt eine 100 Euro Strat auch am Kemper nicht wie eine ES335 von Gibson.

    Es gibt ein paar sehr instruktive Videos im Netz darüber, wie man selber mit dem KPA Sounds nachbauen kann.

    Schreib doch mal an choptones, wie sich das verhält. Ich habe von denen ein paar Profile und die sind alle brauchbar bis gut.

    Guten Tag,

    ich probiere gerade das Kemper Kone Kabinett aus. Dabei kommen im Moment Profile der Amp Factory zum Einsatz, die ich am Anfang meiner Kemper Musik mit Vorliebe gekauft habe. Diese Profile haben tatsächlich nahezu immer die originalen Lautsprecher eingebaut, klangen aber über meine DXR10 nicht immer so wie ich das im Gehörgedächtnis hatte.


    Jetzt sieht die Sache anders aus.

    Man nehme z.B. ein 1963er AC30 Profil von Andy (TAF). Das ist ausgestattet mit einem Celestion Blue. Den gibt es im Imprint-Baukasten des Kemper Kone neben vielen anderen Berühmtheiten.

    Der Sound ist schon merklich verschieden von dem, der aus der Yamaha abgestrahlt wird. Wenn mein Gedächtnis mich nicht täuscht ist das der Sound eines gut abgehangenen VOX AC30.

    Bassman, Twin, Vibrolux, Vibroking, Princeton usw. alles fühlt sich für mich an, als ob es aus dem Winterschlaf erwacht wäre.

    So deutlich und erfreulich habe ich das nicht erwartet.

    Hallo Hans,


    das sollte kein Problem sein. Klemm die Studiomonitore an den Master Out, wie jetzt vermutlich ohnehin schon verkabelt. Das Kemper Kab kommt (über einen Power Amp) an den Monitorausgang. Auf der Masterseite schaltest Du den Kemper Kone aktiv und aktivierst "Mon Cab Off". Dann wählst Du den Lautsprecher Deiner Wahl. Die Auswahl ist groß genug und teilweise sehr unterschiedlich.

    Oder Du lässt "Mon Cab Off" in Ruhe, dann spielt der Kemper Kone dasselbe Lausprecher Profil ab, wie Main Out. Es klingt vermutlich dennoch etwas anders (Gitarrenbox <> FRFR). Das kannst Du über den Sweetening Regler etwas angleichen.


    Ich hoffe, dass ich alles richtig beschrieben habe. Wenn das falsch ist, bitte ich gerne um Korrektur.

    Viel Spaß damit - den wirst Du haben. Garantiert!

    Hi,


    MIM 60's original version of the strat definitely is a very usable reissue of an original 60s fender mia strat, for which you'll have to pay double. Still there is a noticeable sound difference. You'll have to decide wether you like it better. The MIM comes with nitro finish (nicely done) and a 7.25 neck. All together a compound radius neck is easier to handle, even a 9.5 one is.

    But to get the right (60s) sound maybe you should have the right feeling under your finger tips and comfortable does not translate to "right". Chords not only go down well but sound more substantial (subjective of course). Lead guitar playing is a bit (but just a bit) harder (strings are a wee bit higher; so you can do bendings 1,5 - 2 tones) Bottleneck is quite hard to get a grip on because of the neck's greater curvature.

    I would not trade this mim original 60s strat. In my opinion it stands it's ground. I did compare it to an american standard (2011) of mine and a 79 rather old strat (wich sounds better than the two of them together) actually the second real guitar I bought 40 years ago.


    So if I had the money I certainly would try to get a custom shop 60's reissue. Alas most strats on offer are made to look older (brr!). What's the word now...roadworn ?....relic!

    Hi,
    really a good idea and a promising discussion.
    I'd like to add some rigs I found absolutely usable. It's been some time, though. Might be that I found most of them in the original factory content and did not look 'em up in the rig exchange.

    2. FENDER BASSMAN 59 JOHNNY NAVARRO
    3. FENDER TINY FEET TAF

    Hi Renaud,
    (hope I did get it right)


    thank you for this entertaining an Santana like piece of music. It seems to me that besides all that was said about "fingers", which I hold to be true, the organ and the doings of the percussions play a certain role in expierencing the tone of guitars: You only hear them together, the rhythm gets to you and the sound is a melting pot. In short: You came as close as one could get without beeing the man himself.

    Great post, Armin.
    Thank you for this easy to understand flowchart.


    I generally agree and most times I give profiles a second and a third etc. chance. I like to believe that is a personal parameter that has nothing to do with science. Instead I'm thankful for all the work someone has put into producing this very profile. So I'm trying to do justice to the profile and the producer. So I find profiles I discarded for one reason or another on a regular basis. And of course the comparison of so many (good) profiles teaches my ears a valuable lesson...


    I neither experienced the Kemper nor the guitars to be that unforgiving in the sense of right or wrong, but that certainly is a personal matter. I agree that monitors are of the essence. I use Adam Monitors (50W) and never had reason to complain.

    Tom Petty


    For me one of the few musicians that really made sense and sound. I really miss him.
    No more "Deliver me", "Back down", "Little Refugee", "Break down" or "Don't come around here no more". I really fell in love with his rendering of the old Isley Bros. hit "Shout" - the Stones used the wonderful bass line of the song in one of their early live records without giving reference, naturally.


    They don't make 'em like that any mo'.


    As Tom T. Hall had it: "I hope the good Lord likes a little picking too!"

    Hi guys,
    I most definitely am not in this kind of looking at my guitars, and I don't have any professional skills or experience to make what is known as "clever guesses" which I take as adding quite a lot of science and a good portion of intuition in the equations. I buy a guitar, given I may afford it, if and only if I like the sound, the feel and the handling.
    The new professionell Fender models e.g. changed the material in the pups to the effect that every string gets it's own magnetic characteristics in the pu. When I compare my new Tele with one of the older models I hear quite a different sound. (Very subjective, I agree) But then again: Maybe it's nothing to do with the pups and all them changes of sound are solely caused by the new bone nut. In this case Fender's top pu designer (Mr. Shaw) did al lot of work for nothing. But it sounds really cool to my ears and that does it for me.


    I hope the following videos are helpful in the discussion. I don't have any legal rights for these videos.

    Hi,


    you could also take the pre-rig-manager-way:


    1.Go to the first empty performance slot of your actual performance (in performance mode).


    2. Use the right scroll knob above the display. It will start browse mode.


    3. Pick the rig you want to include into the performance by scrolling through all of your rigs (or just a subset you defined beforehand).


    4. Press the load button of browse mode. This will bring you back to performance mode with the new rig in place.


    5. Store the updated performance for safety.


    Now repeat these steps for the next free slot of your performance.


    Even though I use rig manager quite often I like to build performances the old fashioned way.

    Just got my Kemper profiler all set up

    Hi,
    welcome to the happy Kemper lot.


    The time of not believing what you hear certainly will last... I'm a Fender Twin Reverb Fan (1956 or 1965). When I heard the profiles of M. Britt and TAF of these amps and compared them to online sources I sure was blown away. A bit like time travel...


    Greetings
    Joachim

    Well, there's tons of good and excellent free rigs many of them are part of a new Kemper. That has been so from day one.

    but I'm curious to hear how much 'better' they are.

    But: I really would miss the rigs I bought or got free via Kemper support from TAF, M. Wagener and M.Britt. Till now I did not find a Fender TWIN Reverb (1956) profile in the same ballpark (well that is subjective of course) as those done by M. Britt or TAF. On the other hand I surely would miss the wonderful (free) profiles from "pausio" as Dynacord Twen, Echolettes and so on.
    The last few free deliveries from Kemper support are really good stuff and let you hear wether the guys doing them have something in store for you. They allow you to compare on a wide range of profiles.

    Depending on what country you live in, try a Tokai...worlds best kept secret (to some).

    That certainly is true from what I know of my own experience (Tokai LP and Tokai Tele). Sadly, in my home country the Japan made Tokais are not (legally) available.

    Hi,


    Some weeks ago I bought a professional Fender Telecaster (SS) and I will say yeah to everything JSB told about his new strat.

    The deep-C neck, narrow-tall frets, might not suit everyone, but after getting a Tele with that combo, I had to have a Strat too

    I would like to add that intonation even above the twelve fret really is a dream. I have to get used to the very dominant sound of the bridge pu though. This tele - moreover it's butterscotch blond and really a lightweight - definitely is a keeper. I took it to the latest gig and I was blown away when I hit the neck pu for some J.J. Cale stuff: Thick, articulate, sustain till tomorrow...
    Love it. Only thing I changed at once: Away with the gauge 9 set of strings and back to the trusted brand of gauge 10 strings.


    Just looked up "folreden guitars" in the netherlands. Prices for a fancy strat are about €1500,00. A bit less than Fender's new model. I'm not sure wether you may order a neck with the specifications fund in the professional strat. Same thing goes for the treble bleeding circuit. But it's better to ask them. Maybe they'll do it even though they don't offer it in their website shop.
    Greetings
