Yes, the Surface Go is a PC Desktop (Windows 10 running on Intel x86 processor) in a tablette format. So, you can run Rig Manager on it
Common guys, you cannot imagine what a support service can ingest. Ok, they will sell hundered of stage these next two weeks, receiving a lot of tickets about :
- use questions
- user errors
- bugs in KAOS 7
So imagine if they release the KAOS update right now for the rack and toaster version ? they would be flooded by tickets !
Beyond that, i do not understand pricing policy :
- as far as i know,, the only missing stuffs on the stage are the 3 buttons (stomp, effect, amp), both reverb/delay rotary knobs, the ethernet connector (seems dedicated to remote, so useless here)
But the stage has :
- a stereo monitor output
- an additional send/return
- apparently, a updated (better ?) input with 2 impedances selection
- the functionnality of a remote
and it is cheaper than the toaster / rack version ?
What am i missing ?
I took a closer look at the controls, compared to the Head the Stage has actually a lot of changes:
- noise gate rotary control gone
- Stomps, Stack and Effects buttons gone
- Mod, Delay and Reverb rotary controls gone
- Tap button replaced by footswitch
- Undo and Redo buttons gone
- rotary control for Power/Tuner/Browser/Perform/Profiler replaced by buttons or a footswitch (tuner)
- Quick-Button gone
- new Pedals button
- On/Off, Copy and Paste buttons gone
- new Edit button
- new Morph button
- rig browsing buttons (four buttons on the right) gone
- Volume rotary control gone, instead Master Volume control moved to the spot where Volume was before (wondering if Master Volume is now the Volume of the rig)
For me personally that means they removed exactly the buttons that i never use and the overall layout is way cleaner
To stay with the differences :
- 2 effects loops
- a stereo monitor output
- The profiling feature ??? Gone ???
Furthermore, there is a new official Kemper stage overview video :
Interresting stuffs :
- Overview of the new preset management :
- Use of USB2 :
-> manages Rig, performances AND PRESETS
i really think there is a converter between kemper rigs To overloud th-u:
Check this : choptones now provides rigs pack for overloud.
Check the kemper profiles site : https://www.choptones.com/kemp….name&order=ASC&limit=100
And the overloud version : https://overloud.com/products/choptones-fried-be50d
240 studio profiles in both packs with the same cabs, guitars and boost pedals (And the same amp settings for every profile).... strange?
Maybe ChopTones could explain this?
So why to bother to emulate KPA without two of the most important features. Don't get it.
By the way: if you accidentally open a file in notepad and accidentally search for the word kemper, you can find: Kemper Profile Model Rig Player.
Which file ?
So, let's try, the offical demo is released .... https://www.overloud.com/installation-demo.php?p=11000
The business model is also defined : rig packs : https://overloud.com/products/…4GI15LVaz01MzaIQ2UMZuJrOo
you will not be able to change the master volume on the editor.
Would it be possible to set input and outputs options (for example, changing the SPDIF output, or the input source to setup the KPA for a reamp session) ?
Actually, i don't thing there are any patent break. The kemper patent refers to the ability to model a rig by sending some sound patterns to identify the equ and gain stage (non linear function) of a rig chain.
By providing only a player, this ability is hidden. Only overloud has the ability to generate profiles.
I don't know if there is a patent on the DSP algorithm (the player function) itself. If yes, there is no proof that the algo used by overloud is the same.
Looking forward to know the CK reaction on this
Think they might have gotten around it by only offering the “Player” to the public, not the Rig “Sampler”. It doesn’t say anywhere that users can profile their own Rigs, only that Overloud’s engineers can.
If you check the video, you can see (and hear) that their "rig to model" system uses also signal pattern to " sample and capture the response of an entire rig, including the nonlinear and dynamic response of the amplifier, the cabinet, the microphones, the mic preamplifier and the room sound"
Sounds quite similar of what the kemper to, not a simple eq (tone) match between to sound
Overloud is planning hte release of its new product TH-U with an interresting feature : a rig sample / player
Note the look of the module / rotary button , the name of the parameters you have access Look familiar
I vote for VxWorks
This is former Rosen Digital audio ... They changed their name to lancaster audio
(The producer packs seem new)
Was your spdif output set on 44.1khz ? Otherwise, assuming the kpa is still running at 44.1 internally, all other frequencies coule lead to a latency due to the sample rate convertion
Kemper : old dusty DSP with 400Mips
AxeFX III : 2 dual-core brand new DSPs with 20GFLOP per core
And the Axe still try to get closer to the Kemper result So profiling algo vs modeling algo -> 1:0
... , i bought it too early (10 days ago)
Connected to a DAW, with a riff player in a loop. I go through the pack with the Rig Manager, tag my favorites. I often make a second pass though my favorites to try to keep profiles that really sound different.
