    Yes. I wondered why the digital signal is slower than the analogue?

    CK:

    "For the variable sample rates in the Profiler we use a sample rate converter which is build in the DSP hardware, since 2018. This is again comparable to the filters of AD/DA converters. We have no access or control about its latency as well."


    External hardware converters may be "faster" than sample rate converter. When CK implements 44.1 bypass, it will be lower latency on par with firmware from before variable sample rates were implemented. Only for 44.1 though.

    Yeah, was about to buy a new motorcycle, postponed it. I can escape to remote area on old one just fine (I am not even joking - things in the UK are getting worse daily).


    I'll be buying Kone as soon as this thing blows over, assuming I am still alive.

    Hey guys


    I'm learning some Pink Floyd stuff at the moment, and currently on Shine on You Crazy Diamond. The first few solos are relatively low gain, but I can't get sustain on the notes. Any tips?

    I'm using the free AC20 profile with some light delay and reverb btw. No other pedals yet

    In addition to all of the above you have to turn up the volume, quite a lot. You won't get this sort of tone/interaction playing quiet/using headphones.

    To be honest, I am not sure why Kemper would release MK II unless there is another major breakthrough in profiling algorithm. Looking at history, CK may get "bored" with the amp and move to something else, like profiling singers:), but who knows.


    I think we will see a minor OS updates in 2020 (getting 7.0 to rock solid state), and last but not least, Kemper cabinet.

    The interface for the more complex effects, like the reverbs and delays is many pages deep. That is terrible design in terms of ergonomics and is the opposite extreme to being able to see at a glance how the patch is set up on one page of parameters. Any DSP plugin on other platforms (VST, UA, Protools etc) would put the key parameters in a large GUI - a single page - and many use graphical methods to display envelopes etc. The editor and a decent preset saving system for the effects will make all the power that is in the newer delays and reverbs easy to exploit and that will be a big step forward for the KPA.

    I totally agree with this one, I started to want the editor after delays been released, despite not using them that much, it's just fun to play with them from time to time and there is a lot of pages to scroll through. New preset system is neat, will work even better when supported by external software. Kemper Stage is another important reason, nobody wants people to hurt their backs and knees.


    Having said that, Damian's ToastME is really good editor too, I may even stay with it if I find it better than upcoming Kemper one.

    Yes. You most certainly did.

    Ten tons of passive-aggressive criticism here. You the. double-down claiming others are being insecure.

    No it's not passive-aggressive or any other made up BS, you don't know me, I really don't care about others insecurities. It's much easier to fiddle knobs than play guitar, therefore more people twiddle knobs than play guitar and hardware manufacturers know it. Some of these people become great producers, to push it even further, a few of them (surprisingly, one of the best) admit that they were more inclined to play with gear than guitars, so they have made a career out of it and produced quite a a lot of great albums. In some rare cases they can do both.


    Bottom line is, editor may or may not be a handy thing to have, depends on a person. We know it's coming, so whole discussion is purely a banter.

    What do you think about artists who spend their time sketching and carefully organising their colour palettes instead of painting? Without these people there would be no great art hanging in the galleries. Music can be viewed as painting with sound and it follows the same artistic principles. Nobody plugs their guitar into an amp and bangs out a great album. You need some prep, and an editor will help in this regard.

    Lots of insecure people here :). I never said it was anything wrong with it or it wasn't useful. People made a great careers out of twiddling knobs.

    What's wrong with that? They paid less for the equipment?

    Have less rights to expect new features?

    I didn't say anything was wrong with it. Many hardware manufacturers know that there is large group of people who prefer to play with the knobs and touch screens over playing guitar and decide to cater to them.

    What % of guitar players do you think spend a majority of their time leaning over and twiddling on a computer?

    I'd say majority non-gigging bedroom players. There is a massive market deliberately aimed at tweakers, I don't think Kemper is in this business though, it's covered by many others. It's much easier to fiddle with the knobs than play guitar.

    You operate your Kemper using your arse?

    are the room sounds which are made by the OX be put into the Profile ?

    means with OX made Profiles you have a realistic amp in the room sound ?

    Time effects can't be profiled (reverb). Other characteristics like frequency response etc. will likely come through.
