I'll bet it was the anthemic quality that fooled us both, Davo.
cool song and band. Never heard of them. Thanks for sharing
No worries, Paul; the honour is mine, mate.
This band is from my city, Vancouver and Victoria on Vancouver Island.
At first I thought they might've been Irish, but as soon as I saw the scenery it was obvious which part of the world they're from.
Very nice, Peter; well done, mate.
I loved the vintage (read: cock-rock) vibe, man, and the lead tone/s was/were sick!
I've done the initialise global settings but still had a lot of junk on the unit, so I went into the Rig Manager and deleted, I think, 999 rigs.
If you deleted that many Rigs it'd possibly explain issues you might've had that led you to make the decision to reset in the fist place IMHO.
Not a good idea to hold that many Rigs in the Kemper I reckon; you'd have been right at the limit.
The unit now has Kemper Factory Content 7 in Rig Manager but I don't know if it's on the device.
If they're in the My Profiler folder in your Local Library in Rig Manager, they're on your unit.
Yeah Michael, I've never seen a Kemper actually being tweaked in any band's video, let alone an official non-live one.
I don't know why, but I've been doing quite a lot of Kemper spotting lately, as you may have noticed. I've even done it in my dreams.
I mean, you've literally taken the place of the entire KamiBand, an incredible feat IMHO!
Thank you for sharing, mate.
I love it when a Kemper shows up in a non-live official clip.
Love the sense of humour, mate.
Indeed, I've never seen that combination. For the oud it might be worth looking for mic-preamp Profiles; there are a few floating around on the Rig Exchange IIRC.
Pity you had to change your user name, Jose, but at least you're "official" now.
Welcome to the forum, mate.
Thank you, Gerald.
i admit I have never tried a polyphonic tuner but I can’t see the point of them as I only have one hand available to tune with anyway
I was going to make this point earlier, Alan, so I agree 100%.
Since when does anyone use two hands to adjust his tuning pegs / machine heads / fine-tuning screws on a locking trem? One hand to pick the string, the other to tune.
IMHO, unless I'm missing something obvious, it's an innovation driven by the old "because we can" philosophy and not one borne out of necessity.
Larry's so back in this one, Mats.
I see a lot of notes that give it away, mate. Out of respect to you, I quickly tried a needle-drop, random section, and saw 4 straight-away:
Sustained, vibrato notes at 1:25, 1:35, 1:51, the small dive bomb at 2:24... the clues are very many and scattered throughout.
Still, as I said, kudos to him for having played it, whether it's stitched-together from multiple takes or a single, un-filmed one. Either way, it's beautiful and very-well constructed IMHO and I can hear why you wanted to share. Super-cool, man.
I'm a sucker for vintage vibes as well as funky stuff, so it's win-win, Renaud.
It sounds to me like there's too much of a direct-guitar component in the tone/s, mate. Are you sure the direct level is set to zero in the amp block?
The setting is in the Amplifier menu. Here's what the manual says:
With “Direct Mix” you can open up a parallel path to the amplifier distortion and mix a clean portion of the guitar to the distorted sound. This will add some dynamics and attack to the sound, as well as adding some of the frequency content of the clean guitar. Traditionally, similar results were achieved by running the guitar through a clean and a distorted amplifier in parallel (“dual amping”) - now, it can be done with a twist of a knob. “Direct Mix” controls the volume of the clean portion.
I mention this 'cause it sounds to me as if the acoustic aspect of your playing has bled into the signal somehow. The only other explanation I can think of is the aforementioned Direct Mix setting.
It's "supposed" to be live 'cause it's a play-through video, but hey, we'll forgive him for miming 'cause we know he played it in the first place.
Great effort IMHO Sergio!
So many good things happening in there, mate.
