Thanks Guys! I do my best to get back to profiling more but life and corona is happening so...
It's been a while! And this one is special. Because it is maybe the most hated pedal ever.
I tried to capture the sound of the Boss Metal Zone MT 2 ...
Ola did this video and i was like "i have to try this" then i borrowed it and no other sound takes my 8 string as well. it is just the pedal and one is with a poweramp sim. I moved with the studio so i don't have my tube poweramp ready right now but maybe one will follow with a tube poweramp. but it is already a very strange and different tool you can add to your collection.
have fun guys!
As always D.i. and versions with a cab added
Just in case you like how this sounds i can tell you how i made the profiles
if not, as always i am happy about feedback!
I agree it would be cool if the amp slot simply would stay empty in such a cab only mode.
But you can just profile a clean poweramp with your cab and then take that cab for other profiles.
But if you use deconvolver too then use either a 441khz 60 sec sweep ot use r8b to covnert it to 44.1kHz
then use kemper cab maker and you have basically a cab only profile
I truncated Bass cab IRs and Guitar cab IRs on close mics. I would say bright guitar cabs are cool at even 1024samples when they are close miced. Even small rooms work okayish. Right now i experiment with stereo IRs and Stereo Room micing ... on rooms either a offset or a IR file without minimum phase transformation, so, with the natural predelay are ultra important. I made IRs in a church too and soon i can show you some blind tests about truncated and not truncated files and so on ...
Overall i think longer IRs and more at once sound fantastic, i hope the kemper guys listen to us, it is simply sooo important
I love the hx stomp and as a kemper user is would of course love to see a mini version, i bet it is possible,
A little addition, my free profiles are mostly untweaked, that is like the downside fo freebies. So mess around with them! The right cab is ultra important AND if you checked out my newest addition, you need to add some effects.
On Fuzz profiles or the newest one "BUZZSAW" add a rectishaper and or soft and hard shapers in fron of the amp section or until firmware 3.3. even after the amp section. this will bring back the crazy sounds of your FUZZ or HM2
I added two new profiles "BUZZSAW NASTY" with these exact effects so you can check that out
and here is a sound sample
Ahh... thank you for the explanation, Thomas.
Yes, Mattias is inspiring, and very funny IMHO.
Unfortunately he conducts those camps in the EU (and at least one I remember in Russia), but if he ever holds one down here in Australia, I'll go for sure. It'd be worth it for the laughs alone, let alone the knowledge gained.
true! but it is worth a EU trip imo i laready met people from the us, canada, india, russia and so on there so ... instead of holidays tat might be an option
Bommel I stumbled upon your Fanda 57 in the rig exchange a couple weeks back and was pretty impressed. But the VV66 is just shockingly good. Rich but defined, bright but smooth, thumpy with no mud, and sounds good by itself or with stomps/effects. Thank you so much for making it!
And those are the only two I've tried so far!
Thank you very for writing me a feedback! I am very happy you found something you like
Are fans of swedish metal here ?
try this one! https://www.dropbox.com/sh/roc…sneJgqD3EbpfQtxgKF0a?dl=0
I have to admit on this one the kemper struggled to get it right. The Boss HM2 simply sounds too crazy.
So the profiles are only somewhat close but still fat and suprisingly great for bass ...
How the Hell did you get Mattias to play for you, Thomas? I've always loved his playing, so this is a big deal to me. Well done!
Interesting, distinctive vibe you've created throughout the piece, man. Again, well done!
Hey i don't know! But i am super happy that it worked out. I was 3 times at his Freak Guitar camp, which is the best thing you can do as a guitarist honestly, and luckily he remembered me
A bit more:
About the Freak Guitar Camp, if you was not there, for me it is the Mekka haha. You simply have to go there once or twiceat least. Mattias view on music will inspire you for years and he has such a unique style that there is simply no other way to go to him if you are into Harmonics, fancy rhythms and so on ... plus i met so many cool people there, it was a lifechanger in some way.
Oh and who do i have to thank for this? 1.My gear addiction and 2. Laney. I was always looking for new amps and then Laney shared the Freak Kitchen song "speak when spoken too" were Mattias played this incredible VH100R amp ... and this was the beginning of everything.
Really cool cover of a great song, super heavy! Love it.
Thanks so much man.
Thanks so much man! This cover means a lot to me so i am really happy you like it
You guys can not imagine how happy i am about this collaboration ...
I hope you like it
The main sound ist the Kemper, the melody is a vst octafuzz and that's it
Hey !! Two new amps are availabe! Again with different gain settings and i am very happy with the results. I hope you find something you like.
Here i tried to recreate the tone of a Fender Deluxe 57
And i tried my best to recreate the tone of the Fender Vibrolux Reverb-Amp
As always D.I. without a cab. But iam working on IRs too right now
The next release will be something special for swedish metal fans
