Yeah .. i couldnt wait any longer. I was weak. I disgust myself.
Now im gonna go drown my sorrow in juicy tone goodness.
Just remember...the profiles are a LOT cheaper than buying all those amps. No need to be disgusted. You came out ahead.
Are there any plans to release an 8 ohm version? I know this is a long shot but my power amp wont work with the 4 ohm rating.
The only alternative is to buy 2 Kones and run in series in a 2x12 cabinet.
Just bought Kemper last weekend. Profile pack 2 was already in there fromnprevious owner and i was blown away. I got stuck on one preset (/13) and realized 3 hours went by without noticing.
I want to buy pretty much everything else MBritt offers. Im in Canada so currency exchange is pretty bad. I was wondering if there is a discount code laying around somewhere?
I am specifically looking for :
- Profile Pack 1
- Profile Pack 3
- Crank n Go
- Dumble Pack
- Colonial Pack
Thanks and cheers y'all
Don't forget to check out the free MBritt Rig Pack that shows up in Rig Editor along with the other Rig Packs. Many times Mike has a sale on major holidays.
I have all sorts of odd-ball amps and cabs and find the Weber Z-matcher invaluable. Pricey solution, but I don't see why I wouldn't work for the Kone. It's a great gadget to have, probably my most borrowed piece of gear
That's a cool piece of gear! I'd buy if it was 1/2 the price.; too pricey when the end result is to use with my Power Engine. Time to sell the Power Engine since it's useless for my needs.
UGH!!! For those of you who were thinking of doing the same thing as me...
I was hoping to use the Kone with my RARELY (never) used Tech 21 Power Engine. (The old one, not the Deuce) The manual stated that a speaker impedance of 8 Ohm was optimum.
I emailed their tech support about using a 4 Ohm speaker (the Kone only comes in 4 Ohm). The reply was...
"We don't recommend running the unit at 4 ohms as it will cause it to overheat."
Herr Kemper, I noticed the Kabinet is closed back. Will there be any disadvantage to loading the Kone into an open back cabinet (E.g. Tech 21 Power Engine) or is it simply a matter of taste?
(EDIT: Tech 21 says their original Power Engine 60 will overheat with anything other than a minimum of 8 Ohm load.)
In other words, is the Kone optimized for a closed back cabinet?
A tip: I keep all of my purchased profiles in several cloud places; iCloud, emailed to myself using a couple of email addresses, etc.
Dual boot with Win 10 and leave it offline.
The official name of the editor is Chinese Democracy.
The Kone and updated firmware used in conjunction (speaker imprints) is the ONLY thing I'm waiting for.
44 years ago...several years of lessons with a jazz virtuoso was a short cut to learning advanced chords and training my ear along with slowing down records to figure out solos.
Rock was easy to figure out after that.
I really like one of MIke's Champ profiles (one of the packs; don't remember which). He profiled it with the his usual amp cab and also with the original Champ speaker. I prefer the profiles with his usual amp cab.
And if you name them with a numbering prefix you can easily group them as you like....
Now when you buy the next MBritt you just name the folder "12-...".
And with the renaming-feature you can easily adjust the sequence.
Thanks, Deadman....that's a good tip to know!
They're alphabetised when you quit and reopen Rig Manager, Carl, so even 'though you can't move them, you can determine where they'll appear in the list, which is what you want.
Well, Nicky, you are correct. I don't know why I never noticed this. I guess I haven't added profiles in a while. Aging sucks. LOL. Thank you!
I was unable to find a thread on sorting folders, so....
When I create folders for profiles, they are added underneath the last folder I added. I like to keep all of one pack together.
How can I sort them so the folders are alphabetical in the left column? I'd like to keep all packs of one profile maker together.
Thanks for any help.
