I would (and did) start with Pack 2.
Here is a link for my test of this issue, if somebody hasn't seen this yet. The Match EQ curve show what kind of EQ should be applied to the .kipr cab in order to make it sound like .wav cab.
I usually EQ the IR in DAW, bounce it into a new .wav and then use the Cab Maker. How well the IR converts, is not 1:1, at least for the ones I've been converting. Still, they sound quite close. Here is a test I did some time ago: https://www.kemper-amps.com/fo…binet-test-WAVs-vs-KIPRs/
That would be the best option. We've seen that implemented since some of the first cab loaders were created.

Yes, and also in Axefx and Helix too.
Could the HP-LP controls be in the Cab section? For us who often use a real guitar cab with Kemper it would be ideal, so that getting rid of fizz or rumble from the Master Output signal wouldn't mess the sound coming from the guitar cab (=Monitor Out).
True. Not an appropriate mic for bass unless it's for colour-blending with a full-range source such as a DI signal.
The thing is, as far as this low-frequency loss is concerned, that regardless of the mic used when Profiling, if low frequencies are lost, they're lost. It's all relative.
Exactly. If a profile lacks low end, that should mean that the profile lacks low end compared to the "real" identical signal path.
The 215's have a bass boost and also a boost aroung 5k. 535's are the flattest in this chart. Of course, earphones are dependent on the user's ears' anatomy, so these can't be generalised too much.
so...I have to buy both? Which one would you think is "better"?
I already have some profiles: Dr z, Atlantic, 900,...
My live setup is Dr z and Atlantic. All Guido
Financially you won't make a big loss if you buy both of them.
Soundwise, now that I've spent more time with the new pack, I think I like the old one better. The new one has a bit too much 2k or something for my taste and it can be a little grating sound when played loud, but the good thing is that they are merged, and one can use which ever cab he chooses.
I think it would be good if the tremolo had a shape control. Sine, square, triangle.
Man exactly my thoughts. Most versatile Dual pack I bought. It doesn't sound much compressed or boosted and similar to other profiles. +1 For that pack!
Cililab el34 is also very good. Plus they are merged.
For live use, my long time favorite is the Choptones Bogie Dual Recto 3CH 6L6 profile number 004. Most of the Recto profiles are quite fizzy and bassy, and nothing in between them, but Choptones' profiles are well balanced in those areas.
In studio, the double or triple tracking smoothes out the fizzyness, but live, the fizz-free and middy is the way to go if one wishes to hear himself and not to torture audience's ears.
Based on Kemper's new Facebook cover photo, the new thing might be the cabinets.
I'm hoping for Aliases. That is you could assign an alias of another rig's amp block or effect block for example, and then if you change the original the alias changes as well. Somewhere on one of these forums this was discussed with some of the Kemper team if my memory serves correctly, as something they had sights to role out. I know for certain they had been planning on increasing midi capabilities. In which case I'm hoping for midi messages that can be sent without changing rigs and perhaps using the effect switches on the remote.
That and of course reverbs and a little more variety in the stomp overdrives.
A year ago @ckemper implied that aliases are on their way: https://www.thegearpage.net/bo…5744/page-3#post-21185796
My latest pick experiment was with Dunlop Ultex Sharp 1.14mmThey're more regular size/shape. The regular (i.e. non sharp) are probably even more your thing. They go up to 2.0 mm too, if that's your bag.
Those are very good. I currently use the most the non-sharp Ultex 1.14mm or the Sharp 1.14mm or 1.40mm. I drill a couple of holes with a small drill bit when I need better grip.
My turn to contribute something towards the rig library.
I've uploaded my JCM800 merged profile which was done professionally in a Studio.
The profile was made using a tubescreamer and Boss GE7 in the chain (just to push the amp a bit)
I use Fishman Fluence modern pickups so you may need to knock the gain up a bit on the profile if needed.
I was amazed at how accurate this profile was to my amp when running it via a 4x12 (Mesa Boogie)
profile name - JCM800 Merged
I can upload the direct profile if anyone wants it.
Thank you! Sounds very good. With a little tweaking (= lowering the gain, definition, presence and treble and raising the middle), I got it to sound even more to my liking.
I'm would be interested to know what kind of mics and other equipment was used in making this profile.
Try out the John Petrucci ultex jazz picks. They are not as grippy as the max grips, but they have a few ridges that could help if you need that additional texture.
Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately I'm more comfortable with "regular" size (351) picks.l
I use all kinds of pick depending on the purpose, but perhaps my favourite pick material is Ultex.
The best grip that I have come across is Dunlop Max Grip.
If only Dunlop would offer the Max Grip thing for the Ultex picks, that would probably be my ultimate pick.
Jazz III XL Ultex it pretty close to what would be ideal, but unfortunately it is a couple of mm's shorter than the regular 351 shape.
Dunlop Prime Tone is also pretty close to my specs, but the engraved(?) grip isn't as good as the grip that sticks out of the pick surface.
I quickly played through the new merged pack and it sounds very good. I really like the 421 blended with 57, because they compliment each other very well. 57 brings the edge and 421 brings the body.
Very useful feature request. Nowadays, when every other device is digital, starting from digital wireless to a digital monitor mixer, there is a lot of cumulative latency due to the multiple AD/DA conversions.
