    A freqout pedal?

    Hi, great pedal, but it doesn't add note length - in terms of 'infinity'.


    It does keep the volume of the note audible for longer - as a comp would - for as long as you are vibrating the string with your finger.


    So the OP would need to think do they want the note to be audible for longer with the feedback harmonic element (in which case this is an excellent choice) or do they just want the natural sounding guitar note to be audible whilst played for longer, in which case a comp would be the best bet.

    3 identical performances - in case I stand on page up or page down button by mistake I still get the right patch.


    the only one in the browser is the bass transformer 2 from RE. Useful to have quick and easy access for when I need to beat a bassline into the bassists fat head.


    I find it annoys/motivates him more when it sounds like a bass :D

    Hi,


    Depends on budgets - and if you're trying to get something that will work for different applications.


    If it is a powered toaster - then get studio monitors, the best you can afford - so that your mixes will also improve. You will then be able to run it into any old cabinet that is provided as backline when you are playing out.


    If it is an unpowered toaster, then get a powered FRFR of some sort. You will be able to enjoy it at home and at low volume and also take it with you when you play out :)

    Hi, I'll try my best to help - but not entirely sure what it is you are asking?


    Live and using the power amp (I used to have the same golden beast as you) you need to have monitor cabinet turned off in your output menu.


    This will allow you have the FOH sound with cabinet emulation (from main outs), whilst having it off for your backline signal (monitor out to power amp).


    If you are asking how close will a profile of V30s be to the sound coming from your cabinet - well, it will sound like V30's but mic'd up. There are approx one billion profiles containing V30s on the rig exchange and you should use rig manger to lock everything apart from cabinet and scroll through some until you find what you like.


    In order to tweak your profiles for FOH - in order of accuracy/best results in my experience:


    1. Use a high quality FRFR speaker - as loud as you are permitted.

    2. Use high quality studio monitors - in a properly treated room.

    3. Use headphones


    If you do not have access to these, then my best advice (other than finding someone who does that lives close to you) is to rent a studio for a morning. Profile your amps and cabs - or take a laptop with you and try profiles (either commercial or rig exchange) and do your tweaks there with the help of an engineer.


    Best of luck, and let me know if I didn't answer what you were after!

    Hi Jerrold, yes you should hear the same thing back - minus the 'in the moment' feeling that you get when doing a take.


    Really great advice on checking the output eqs, but this is only if you are directly connecting to your kemper to your monitors for zero latency tracking using the monitor outs on the kemper, whilst you record your main outputs into your daw. Otherwise, if you are monitoring using your DAW there should be no difference at all.


    You don't have something (plugins or external hardware inserts) on your mix or print bus that you don't have on whilst tracking? Often (either due to inexperience or managing latency issues) people add something onto their main or print bus after they got the 'tone' or 'mixed sounds' that they already really like to make it louder etc. But if you are doing that, you need to 'mix into' those plugins - rather than trying to apply it as a 'polish' to what should already be the mixed sound.

    This used to happen to me with a Boss FS-6 dual footswitch connected to operate the looper. Often (always?) on kemper startup, a loop would be triggered. Using headphones, so it was a bit easier to track down :)

    We have the same foot switch hehe

    Spent almost 20 minutes trying to track down a dodgy connection in my wiring, crackling lead, dodgy pots....trying different leads and different guitars.....driven insane.


    To then realise, I had unwittingly managed to record...and indeed playback a 10 second loop...of me turning the kemper on with the lead dangling on the floor and then me plugging my guitar in.

    Bought the pack, especially as I liked his continuum pack anyway! So great suggestion!


    And the rig by the chap 'heater' is now my heavy crunch channel profile! So my mileage did not vary hehe


    Excellent suggestion from you both!

    Hi,


    I have done some searching but found very little.


    Can anyone point me to rigs that contain EVM12Ls so I can use just the cab?


    I have direct amp profiles I want to pair with them.


    Cheers,

    I use hybrid 9's with a fat bottom on 25inch scale length, and standard 10's on 24 3/4 lengths...


    When I watched this video a few days ago it made me think about skinnier strings on the bottom for heavy music - makes a lot of sense actually.


    But for cleans...bigger strings are beautiful...like queen said about ladies.
