As an old wise dude, I say keep one tube amp. Choose your favourite and sell the rest.
I would like to see it per rig but in the cab section to better emulate the real speakers values.
Another place could be in other effects, such as compression or OD/Distortion to help tame some things and give more options for slot use.
I still find I use EQ on some rigs and only to add in more hi/low cut for certain things.
The addition in the output as global was really a welcomed feature that I use. Thank you Kemper team
Are you using the Kemper display or Rig Manager for this adjustment? There appears to be a bug in RM that results in an incorrect frequency display. Not sure where to report Beta bugs, unfortunately. Is there a dedicated forum?
To report Beta issues ( or any issues) go to Kemper page and Support, fill out the form with a description of issue and they will email back, usually ask for application file or a copy of your Kemper backup, or more specifics.
I tested mine and yes you can use a TRS for the switch if you want, the other cable I tried must be a bad cable. Currently I use just a TS for switch.
Use TRS for pedal and TS for the switch. TRS cable on the switch will not work
Edit- TRS on the switch does work, TS as well. Tested with a different cable
Look under the delays. There is the “ pitch shifter delay“ They combine delays and pitch shifter
If you are looking to use it for live playing, Then I would recommend the Waza Expander. The FX and FX loop, plus midi, give it a leg up over other units, IMO.
Great! Thanks for sharing
What a great idea! Time to hit garage sales and thrift stores.
Very inspiring, thanks!
Thanks Alan. Now my blood pressure is up about how bad I want/need a meter to help with leveling!
Do you have an interface or mixer with levels or a DAW. You could look at the level going in there and use it as a starting point, then fine tune with your ears.
yes I have played through both, can recommend them both. I went with the Bose as it is also battery powered, Bluetooth and can take a mic input.
personal opinion perhaps but I find the Distortion/Overdrive effects in the Helix to be worse than Kemper. IMO I would use external pedal or find a different Rig in the Kemper
Bose S1 pro
Mixing in a piezo is something that would never work.
If you have a piezo "on tap" you don't need our acoustic simulator.
yes, I think I am fighting the piezo sound too much, especially the high end sparkle. I am going to take a different approach and try to get the sound from my other electric guitars with AC sim to sound more like my piezo instrument does on its own. Will A/B then as a starting point.
I strongly advice not to use the Lowcut/Highcut for this purpose.
Have you tried the controls of the Acoustic Simulator?
Didn't you succeed to tame the shrillness by bringing down "Bronze" and "Sparkle" ?
I did lower the sparkle, it’s at -1.8 and Bronze is at 4. It might be because I am mixing in a piezo that I was still getting way too much high end.
Been playing around with the AcSim and finally have a really good acoustic sound. I am using a guitar that has a piezo that I can blend in with the regular pickup and that helps a lot.
Some things I did were... ACSim in slot C, EQ in slot D. Raised my clean sense for more volume (I don’t lock it and save it per rig). I found that I had to use the high and low cuts in the EQ to filter out any boominess and to get rid of the shrill from the sparkle effect. I set it for around 5400khz.
I also ended up turning on the amp section but not the amp EQ or Cab. Then I mixed in some direct sound and played with the definition
wow, look at all the other goodies included, the high & low cut in the output section is going to be awesome
added: new effect Acoustic Simulator in category Equalizer
added: new effects Phase Widener and Delay Widener in category Equalizer
added: new effect Auto Swell in category Compressor
added: Low Cut and High Cut filters in Output Section affecting all outputs
added: Pitch, Voice Interval, and Key in pitch and pitch delay effects can now be morphed
added: S/PDIF slave capability for classical PROFILER models manufactured since about 2019. New devices show option Auto/Internal in Output Section like Stage models do.
improved: S/PDIF latency decreased (at 44.1 kHz)
fixed: wrong Rig gets replaced when new Rig gets stored after PROFILING
fixed: UI to MIDI; slave PROFILER loading incorrect Slot with Performance Load set to Pending or Keep Rig
fixed: Looper Mode not displaying Overdub correctly, if Play/Record/Overdup button gets hold after First Recording.
fixed: expression pedals having dead area in heel and toe positions after each restart of PROFILER Stage
added: five delay presets, twelve wah presets, one vowel filter preset, and one vibrato preset
changed: legacy wah presets changed to Pedal Mode=On
Looks like I spoke out of turn in reaction to the Kemper Facebook post. I cannot download it either. ?. Hopefully they will sort it out soon.
The OS7.5 Beta with acoustic sim is now available. ??
