    This is a topic that has been discussed at length in other threads. Without any details of your signal chain no one can help you. The Kemper by itself introduces at least 3.4 ms delay but not much more even with lots of effects on. It should be imperceptible

    Sorry it seemed like an attack on my judgment. Really I made it for me, not the community, and since I have mostly Windows machine I wanted the quickest simplest path to a simple native app. Later I tried to look to Xamarin to make it cross platform, but that wasn’t available for free at the time. I do have a Mac mini now but no time to mess with this. I also used codeplex because it WAS more consumer oriented vs developer oriented. Someday I’ll have more time and be smarter about reaching a wider audience, as well as designing things more granular and simple to use for reusability if anyone wants to pivot. Unfortunately my job is overflowing but if we succeed it will be worth it. Otherwise I’ll quit and regain some free time again. Again, I apologize for acting immaturely

    no prob - here's a quick and dirty (bad) double track of the vh4:

    In most cases, Soundcloud uses a bandwidth of only 128 kbps. As a result, what you hear isn't free of artefacts, especially the high end. For critical listening and also product comparison, please keep that in mind. Users who setup a comparison should use linear wave files and supply dropbox links.

    tired - lots of stuff to do.


    here's a clip of the bogner helios "-e merged" profile

    grabbed the helios and vh4. woop woop - will post clips when i get to jam on them. i also realized i've missed quite a few packs. I feel like almost all my profile GAS went out the window between the Recto EL34, EVH Stealth, and especially the Mark V packs.

    was going for a Master of Puppets tone lol B-)


    i did apply a slight EQ to this profile in the front just to tighten up the low end just a little but otherwise its very solid right out the box.

    I don’t understand… Maybe I wasn’t clear… or maybe we are talking about two different things…
    When I am playing through any given rig with gain set between five and seven, it makes a drastic difference where I have the clean sens set, if it is said hi, the tone goes to crap and the red light is on all the time… If it is set to low, The tone changes to a weaker tone with lots of treble And of course, then there is no red light, just green…
    I can make a video in seconds to show you… send me your email via personal message and I’ll gladly do it tonight… I think this is what you mean?

    Very odd. I thought I had thoroughly tested this, as I was also very confused at first about what the setting actually did. Gonna throw my shoe on the grill.


    Maybe something changed. Anyway in general I turn it down a little bit so if I turn gain down and strum on the bridge humbucker I don’t clip. I don’t bother changing the setting if I use the strat style guitar though

    Clean Sense controls the level hitting the AD converter. The led is indicating where this level is at; before any processing takes place. Whether the rig is clean or distorted is irrelevant.

    i think this is completely wrong. Its not controlling an analog attenuator. Again if someone wants to make an a/b clip with a gain setting of 5 or above and see if this tonal difference isnt completely an invention of mental bias, ill eat my shoe

    I dont know how the light works but there shouldnt be any difference in tone once gain is past ab 5 or 6. Record two clips, mix them up or have someone else rename them, and try to figure which had clean sense too high and you were getting the red light. It should just be telling you that once you lower gain, you will get digital clipping because the output is too high.


    Not sure why the kemper works like this or if its really important as a feature. I think its there so you can switch guitars that have different power pickups and theyll be the same volume. But the feature typically causes more confusion than help

    cili is the man. I have most if his packs and think theyre the best ive found. Get all the packs. Hes also a really cool guy and takes care of his customers.

    clean sense isnt an input attenuator. It shouldnt have any effect on high gain tones. It affects how loud the volume is gain is lower, and can cause clipping when you have it set even at neutral when using high output humbuckers. Distortion sense can be thought of as an offset to the gain setting, so you either get globally more or less gain on all profiles

    i find Def usually set too high for my tastes, and the tone sounds overly boosted with too thin low end. I like usually to turn it down until the low end really thickens up and even starts to break up. Then ill use an eq in one of the stomp slots to really dial it in for the exact sweet spots for my guitar. Maybe shave some of the deeper bass and boost some mids to treble. You get the tightness and clarity with a richer, more natural sound.


    Clarity is cool but i find using less gain to be just shy of saturated, and reducing some higher frequencies can help get a similar result, and you have more control than just using the Clarity control.


    My methods are more involved and may consume fx slots, so they dont work for everyone. Definition, Clarity, and Comp are very useful parameters on the amp block if this is the case. Just dont go too extreme - its easy to get things to be a little weird
