    This makes a lot of sense now, and yes the Triple XXX is based around the Ultra, so I know you are bang on the money with your answer. That would also explain why every now and again the Kemper would say I have a noise gate turned on when profiling, although this only happened on the odd occasion I had a tube screamer running in the front end so I assumed it was that giving the "false" noise gate warning.


    I'll take a good read through the post. Thanks for the help.

    I cannot get a good distorted direct out profile from my Peavey Triple XXX no matter what I try.


    The Triple XXX has a dedicated Line Out (Post Power Amp), I have also tried profiling just the pre-amp from the FX Send as well with no better results.


    I am using the Powerhead Version with the built in power amp


    I have tried:-
    -Multiple different EQ settings on the amp
    -Master volume high, channel volume low and vice versa
    -Master volume low and channel volume low
    -Master volume high and channel volume high
    -Line out on 10, profiler level input low so in the green
    -Line out half was or lower, higher profiler input level also in the green
    -Tube screamer clean boosting the front
    -Straight in amp no boost
    -With refining
    -Without refining
    -Refining with boost still connected and on
    -Refining with boost off


    My chain is guitar > cable > Kemper > Direct Out > Input Amp > Dedicated Line Out > Return Input
    I have my cab connected to the amp for load and for obviously dialling in the amp.


    Once I have profiled the direct out and done the refining (or not) I listen to the result from the Kemper and it sounds quite like you would expect from the D.I. with no power amp, very fizzy but this is also very muddy, basically sounds nothing like my amp at all.


    The definition is usually set at 0.0 after profiling never above 2.1 and that is rare. If I raise the definition to above 9.0 and the clarity to around 1.0 the profile becomes usable, and in some case quite good, especially after a little EQ in the stack section but still doesn't really sound like the amp into the cab, which I gather this way is supposed to do.


    Firmware wise I was on 2.7.3 beta and I made several more attempts to profile the DI from this amp with no great success. I then upgraded to the latest Public Test 2.8 with the new profiling method enabled via system page 8 soft button 4 and profiled the exact same settings as soon as the firmware was installed and while there was a definite minor improvement especially once I had really adjusted the definition from 2.1 to 10.0 afterwards it still doesn't really sound like the amp.


    The exact words from the latest firmware documentation are: "Done! The Profiler will produce the identical sound with your guitar speaker as your tube amp does."


    Now I've heard some excellent DI profiles and used a fair few so we all know it can work with great success, but does anyone have any idea what might be going wrong for me or experienced something similar, I have looked back and read numerous guides/wiki etc but cannot suss this out.


    Could it be the Triple XXX DI doesn't profile well?
    Would I get the correct results placing a dedicated DI between the amp head and the cab and sending that to the return of the Kemper for profiling?


    Thanks in advanced for any help

    OK first of all I'll post links to the original thread I found the solution on, as I can't really take credit for this fix as Kemper support gave it to a user in this thread:
    http://www.kemper-amps.com/forum/index.p…=13276&pageNo=3


    My detailed instructions I wrote up in another post yesterday are here right towards the bottom of the thread:
    http://www.kemper-amps.com/for…&postID=159880#post159880


    What I would try first is the "Initialize/Checking Boot" method as I believe you shouldn't need to go the whole way and start deleting the Kemper databases stored on Windows as you say the enteries in Rig Manager look correct and the issue you have is in the amp itself.


    Hold down the RIG soft key and turn the Kemper onto BROWSER mode whilst still holding down the RIG soft key while the Kemper is booting. After about 15 seconds the Kemper will say in small text INITIALISING RIGS, you can now leave go of the RIG key. The Kemper will the show you on the LCD that it is checking all performances and rigs i.e. CHECKING RIGS 225 OF 650 or however many rigs you have saved. It will go through checking tonestacks etc and so on till all variables have been checked. Then the Kemper will have booted displaying an "Intialised Rig" rather than your last used rig. That's it nothing has been deleted apart from the dead entries that were causing the sync issues. Your Kemper should now sync in a matter of seconds.


    Hope this helps.

    I plus loads of users have had similar issues as yours, i.e amps/cabs that have been deleted in Rig Manager showing on the Kemper after they have been deleted and when you select them it "plays" the sound of the last valid rig you were using not what you selected. Give me a couple of seconds to dig out the post I typed up to someone with the same issue last night.

    OK I finally found the post and I think this will help you.

    I'm certain the slowness of the Rig Manager syncing and the "fragments" of deleted rigs being left over in menus after deletion in Rig Manager, such as cabs and amps that although are there by name don't actually do anything when selected any more and that also don't appear in Rig Manager's My Profile list can be fixed following some instructions a user called lavigie received via Kemper Support.


    Yesterday I deleted all the Kemper Rig Manager database files from my pc and let Rig manager recreate them during a 15 minute or so re-syncing I still had old "dead" amps and cabs available in menus on the actual amp.


    How I fixed this was as said in the linked thread:
    Hold down the RIG soft key and turn the Kemper onto BROWSER mode whilst still holding down the RIG soft key while the Kemper is booting. After about 15 seconds the Kemper will say in small text INITIALISING RIGS, you can now leave go of the RIG key. The Kemper will the show you on the LCD that it is checking all performances and rigs i.e. CHECKING RIGS 225 OF 650 or however many rigs you have saved. It will go through checking tonestacks etc and so on till all variables have been checked. Then the Kemper will have booted displaying an "Intialised Rig" rather than your last used rig. That's it nothing has been deleted apart from the dead entries that were causing the sync issues. Your Kemper should now sync in a matter of seconds.


    I tried to recreate the "fragments left" scenario by adding new rigs then deleting them in Rig Manager but now my Kemper seems to behaving as it should and the rig is removed fully when deleted. No doubt sooner or later after a large deletion of rigs this problem will rear itself again but at least we now know how to solve it.


    Hopefully this will work for you no problem as well.

    Yeah I have the same issue, I read a guide somewhere and I can't find it anywhere again that got this issue fixed for me. I remember it involved deleting database files from the Kemper folders in Windows and also booting up the Kemper a certain way then making some adjustments there. I remember eventually I had to also delete all traces of Rig Manager the folders, databases the lot for from my computer and re-install on top of whatever the guide said regarding the actual amp.


    Basically my problem is the same, delete rigs from Rig Manager and afterwards syncing works really slow although not the be all and end all but the main issue is the rigs are still in the menus but no sound changes ie the last non-deleted rig is the sound that is played if you select a "deleted" rig that is still present in the menus and after a few seconds when the LCD reverts to the main rig details it shows the last working profile in the menu, hope that makes sense. Its a pain that you can't just delete from Rig Manager and have it all sync up correctly without leaving the fragments you mention.

    When I try to backup my Kemper to USB the process appears to work however when I look at the file on my computer the file size is 0KB and when unzipped/extracted shows as empty.


    I can add rigs to the USB drive and import no bother so I assume the USB drive is fine. I have formatted the drive a few times to but I still get the same issue.


    Anyone here have any ideas or experienced the same?

    Well somehow its resolved it's self. Not sure how but it has.


    I loaded up rig manager with the intention of finally cleaning up the rigs in the amp. I had nearly 700 and they were starting to give me lag whenever I used the browse knob to scroll for the first time after a boot up.


    Narrowed it down to around 500 and the lag was gone but then syncing with rig manager was looking to take around 30 minutes, I read into this and followed the advice regarding deleting the database files etc from within the local profile on my laptop.


    In the end I un-installed Rig Manager plus all its files databases and folders left behind on the laptop, updated to 2.4.2 Release again reinstalled Rig Manager fresh and did the power up to Browse Mode with the RIG button held in till it finished booting to an initialised rig and there you have it problem gone, re-synced again from scratch in rig manager all is fine. :thumbup:

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone had experienced anything similar or had any insight into an issue I'm having?


    This morning I updated my Kemper Powerhead with KPA_Operating_System_2.4.2_svn9817_Release from KPA_Operating_System_2.4.1_svn9785_Public_Beta.


    Upon doing so I noticed one profile I use a lot, namely GRS 5150 II LD 15, sounds fine for around 4 seconds then it sounds as though the treble rolls off and sounds very muffled. Imagine someone suddenly stands in front of your cabinet with a very thick block of foam!


    This happens at 4 times out 5 when I switch to this profile.


    It happens with any rig I have set up using this amp profile, but say GRS 5150 II LD 10 or another profile created by the same user same amp doesn't have the issue, which will probably have been a profile made in the same session maybe only minutes apart.


    I have rolled back to the Public Beta and the issue is gone, works fine. Upgraded again to 2.4.2 and the issue is back. I have played through a few rigs in my Kemper and this profile seems to be the only one suffering this issue?


    Any ideas?

    Just to confirm I was looking for an answer or some information regarding this and confirm since upgrading to 2.3 Beta I have had this issue where switching between rigs sometimes the sounds is "muffled" as if the treble or presence has been rolled back quite a bit.


    I will roll back to 2.1 for now thanks everyone.
