Back on topic, after a year long hiatus I actually have a band rehearsal tomorrow. So, time to create a Performance!
I created one Performance today. It took me almost an hour.
- The process of creating a Performance and loading rigs into the five available slots seems to work fine. However once you start moving between the five slots to edit those five rigs, things can get wonky. I loaded a clean tone into Slot 1, then worked my way down the line, saving after loading each rig. I then started working my way back through the rigs to edit the stomps, and somehow the clean tone in Slot 1 got replaced by the rig I had loaded in Slot 5. I navigate through the slots with the buttons on the Kemper, if that helps.
- Editing rig names in Performance slots in Rig Manager does not update the names of those Rigs on the Kemper. I would edit the names using the Kemper interface, but using the little dials to scroll between letters just to change a rig name takes a very long time compared to typing them in Rig Manager.
- Any change you make to a rig in a Performance slot must be saved before you move to the next slot, otherwise those changes are lost. I understand this is just the way it is, but I must have hit that Save button about 1,000 times today. It would be nice for any and all changes to be saved in a buffer somewhere so the only time you need to save is when you are completely done editing the Performance.
- The Kemper froze twice during the process, both times while trying to copy the stomp effects block. I haven't experienced a freeze like this in over a year using Browse mode.
So my constructive feedback is the process of creating one Performance seemed to take a very long time. That's just my opinion.
