    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)

    User Interface

    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

    Factory Content

    added: five delay presets, twelve wah presets, one vowel filter preset, and one vibrato preset

    changed: legacy wah presets changed to Pedal Mode=On

    I’m on MAC and Rig Manager works perfectly fine for performances. So it’s not all of us having issues. As suggested, you should contact support, I would also suggest you try a new USB cable as that has been known to cause unexpected errors/issues.

    thank you very much.

    Just for understanding, If I connect active DI after the kemper anyway, That would be a problem?

    thanks again

    If you choose a high quality active D.I. you should be ok. You could however overload it and create unwanted distortion/noise. That is why for an active source you typically choose a passive D.I.

    The other part is how much you want to colour your sound, active will add more of its sound than a good passive unit.

    A simple passive D.I. is just a transformer. Active D.I adds a preamp along with it.

    Active D.I. sometimes add other features that you might want as well and could also be used as backup if you needed to plug guitar in direct or want to use it on other instruments.

    I would spend a bit more and get a good one at that point.

    The rule of thumb is how are you connecting to the board. With an active source or passive.The Kemper is active (powered) you would want to use a passive D.I. If you were plug a guitar directly into the board without the Kemper, you would then want an active D.I. as your source is passive.

    So the answer to your question is passive D.I.

    Sorry for the confusion, but I can't seem to find any presets in my Kemper.

    I have updated the firmware in early 2020 but I only have the algorithms, not the presets.

    I don't use Rig Manager, is there a way to download them and import via USB stick?

    Use the “Type” knob on the left side, not the “Browse” knob.

    The Browse side will only have saved presets, sometimes from vendor Rigs

    You can download or use the Rig Manager to try some Kemper presets .

    There is a Rig pack you can download on the Kemper site that had effect examples, you can use a USB stick
