Yeah, I guess the hostile replies come from those who haven't tried the Neural plugins yet =D pretty good stuff!
Yes, that's what I meant. I changed the title for clarity
It'd be cool if it were possible to store the current loop via usb to RigManager, that would store it locally on one's computer.
I don't know if this has been proposed before. I know (though never tried so far) that the KPA can trigger 2 PC commands on 2 different channels when changing rig, but that's quite limited. I think a simple idea, in that it also would integrate easily with the remote, is to add a MIDI block, that can send a sequence of midi messages when activated and another one when deactivated. What do you guys think?
They are momentary switches.
The 4 inputs on the remote can handle expression pedals, mono or stereo switches.
Your understanding of midi s basically correct.
I had an FCB1010 which I used briefly both woth and without the Uno4Kemper chip. Then I tried using my RJM Mastermind PBC from my old pedalboard. Then I got a used Remote.
My summary would be: if you want to cntrol the KPA in isolation nothing beats the Remote. The integration is just amazing and so easy to use. However, if you need to control other midi devices in addition to the KPA go with a traditional midi controller.
So, by momentary switches I mean you mean what I meant by "soft", i.e. switchless, like those found in Strymon pedals, in the Helix, et cetera?
Ultimately I am considering using *primarily* the KPA, so the remote seems perfect, but I would like to know how flexible it is.
Thanks guys for the help!
Hey guys, after using the KPA for ages but with many other controllers, I am itching to get a remote and - hopefully - simplify my life a little.
However, I have a couple questions still unanswered:
1) what kind of switches does it have? Are the soft or hard?
2) as far as I have read, MIDI control is very limited, i.e. can send 1 PC message on 2 channels when switching rigs, so I imagine one can't configure the stomps buttons to do that. Is my understanding correct?
3) can the additional input be used also with switches, or only with expression pedals? If they can be setup to use additional switches, how does the assignment work?
Thanks a lot for your help!
So, higher latency on the card didn't help a bit.
Browsing through my EMU's manual, I found this:
Seems spot on, right? Except that my card shows the external sync IS locked, and yet the clicks are still there.
This is so annoying =S
Is it maybe some setting that I might be missing on the kemper?
Didn't try that, though it's not ridiculously low, something around 10 ms. I will try later at home
Quite sure, this happened with 3 different guitars at least. Also the spdif cable should not play a role as it's a digital connection.
The interface is an EMU 1616m. I tried already setting it to external, but then I got a lot of random clicks and crackling noises =?
Hey, wondering if anyone has an answer to this.
So, I have my KPA set up to send the dry signal via SPDIF to my interface, and from there to Cubase. The whole setup is *almost* perfect, except for occasional, very sporadic yet unavoidable, crackling. Like here, after not even one second, you can hear the little crackling: https://soundcloud.com/simone-frau-2
Clearly the Khz are in sync (it would be a lot of metallic noise otherwise), but I read somewhere that I should sync KPA and audio interface on word clock, but I didn't find it on neither of the two.
Thank you all in advance!
Sold! (that was quick)
I am selling my Gordius Little Giant 2, in excellent condition, for 350 euros included shipping in Europe (if you're in Switzerland even better).
If you know the name, you will know it's one of the most powerful MIDI boards ever (without the huge footprint that others have)...if you don't, the website doesn't pay it justice, but it's a start: http://www.gordius.be/midi-footcontroller-lg.php
I include also a 9m 7pin MIDI cable and an adapter that allows you to send on the same cable MIDI in, out, and power, all on just one cable!
I use it with my Kemper and Strymon pedals and I made this crazy setup to control all Strymon's parameters right from the pedalboard, and control the KPA's looper...it's awesome =)
If you're interested drop me a PM!
Let me bump this again in hopes more people feel the need for it like I do
Tube amps are still a bit above digital gear, albeit the distance gets gets shorter and shorter (notably since the KPA came out )
There is no need to take sides. One can enjoy both the authentic experience of tube amps as well as the stunning resemblance that the Kemper has to offer, combined with all the pragmatical advantages it brings.
Very Helix-y, no?
...and if they're as close in sounds as in looks, then it's a clear pass for me.
(well, it'd probably be a pass anyway, I'm extremely happy with the KPA and I don't really want to spend my time trying to replace it with whatever)
So, can anyone - within Kemper, possibly - say if this is doable?
Once I was playing my powered KPA at home, volume 1 out of 10, and I got a knock at my door. My neighbour was pretty pissed. My neighbour from 3 floors above, that is
So yeah, I wouldn't worry too much about loudness.
