    was never told not to change string guages or lower string heights. I don't understand why you would've been told that, Gaz.

    But told it, I was. What can I say? I could have just changed them but I realized I didn't like it for rock anyway, so why go to the trouble. My favorite rock with acoustic was the Music Man JP Maestro with piezo. Only problem with that was a very poor design placement of the pickup selector. Every few strums I'd hit the selector and change from neck to bridge p/u. Most annoying while playing in a club. Great acoustic though!

    Does L6 variax do a convincing emulation?

    I had the gen - 2 for a while. It did a very nice job with ac sim, way better than the Kemper (sorry guys!) and the 12-string, banjo, and sitar sounded really good. What did NOT sound good was using this for rock and roll, not at all. That's why I sold mine after just a month tinkering around with it. I also hated the high action and thick strings they insisted you did not change.

    This demo was just finished today and it has 3 guitar tracks plus the bass.

    FYI, I did this using a Gibson SG

    Cool piece Dan! Could have been a cut on The Beatles Revolver album. Didn't appreciate an acoustic sound to it, almost like a brand new instrument entirely! Good work either way. Still not in love with the AC with my humbuckers despite many tweaks.

    well, most of the wah settings already existed in another thread for years before monkey man started this thread.

    A lot of us (myself included) knew nothing of another thread before Monkey_Man began his wah thread. I therefore do not think it a bad thing at all that he's organized these wahs for us (even if they had previously been organized elsewhere). I think he's brought this to the mainstream attention, and that can only be good for Kemper users everywhere. I applaud his efforts and I wish you would be on his side, regardless of his rhetoric, and not chide him for being "presumptuous." Be nice to all who visit this wonderful forum. We learn so much from the wisdom and experience of the whole assemblage of talent and brainpower utilizing the amazing Kemper Profiling Amp.

    And please don't forget that we are both your customers as well as your chief local, but highly enthusiastic sales advocates across the entire globe. Most of my musical friends have barely even heard of the Kemper (at least here in the states)! I promote it every time I get the chance. We get the word out how great this wonderful machine is to millions. Monkey_Man is an inspired part of this behind the scenes sales force, loyal to the core. Don't silence what keeps your wonderful brainchild making your company, and the entire musical community, rich.

    when I finally break down and get an expression pedal.

    So what's holding you back from such a minor purchase? The wahs are (mostly) really great and an expression pedal, even a cheap on one, will do them up nicely. Go for it, Jeff!!

    wrbi - so I tried it out and at least on my PRS I hear no wisp of any 12 string. I might tinker with added delay, see if there's any difference. I glad you do on your Strat and thanks for sharing!

    Changing the volume, gain, presence or even eq isn;t really the type of tweaking I'm referring to.

    Im talking about difiction, amp sag, IR's etc which you rarely have that level of control on a tube amp.

    Interesting phrase "isn't really the type of tweaking I'm referring to." Personally I think (and I bet most would agree) any change you save with your profile means that it's been tweaked (it's no longer just out of the box so to speak), but that's just semantics, not important. The only thing that's important is that you're having fun getting sounds you enjoy playing!

    Silly question, why morph a pure booster and not just volume? Would save you a slot. I do the same but with volume.

    And sometimes I do that as well. My morphs are usually tied into increasing delay mix and/or feedback, and/or a flanger - something extra for solos, depends on the song. I love effects. So it's not strictly volume I morph, I should have been more clear in my statement there, sorry.

    I'm a tweaker, always have been. So I find a profile that's pretty close to what I'm after, then I adjust EQ a little to taste, play with definition a little, and, if it's a lead sound I'm after I almost always add some tasty delay, increase rig volume, and add a morphed pure booster just in case I need more when I hit the stage. Lead sounds almost always benefit from that, especially if you're looking for "live" rigs, which is mostly what I do.

    So to me it depends on the setting in which you're playing that dictates whether to tweak or not and how much; studio or live.
