And a bag for the Stage...?
Super fat lead sounds with this profile, killer sound indeed!!
So are you saying they are different from the rack and toaster versions?
I think the situation regarding the Stage is a bit different and not directly comparable to the Head/Rack versions.
For the Head/Rack there are perfectly stable release versions available, so no reason to use a beta version in critical applications.
I finally found out what is wrong. It's the new Beta 7.0.5..... update.
The problems came for me at a seriously wrong moment, just before a gig! Let me explain.
Every time I assigned a couple of songs in the right order to a midi number on my midi board. But when turning the Profiler off and back on, every song under its corresponding midi number had been replaced by another song. So nothing had been saved actually. I tried this several times, thinking I was going mad after a while. But every time I kept on getting other songs under right chosen and saved midi assigns.
And another problem came with it. Scrolling with the Browse knob (alfabetical) for following rigs was no more possible! There was nothing wrong with my midi board! So it had to be the Profiler itself!! Then it came to me that it had to be that update version, causing all this, because never before these problems occured!
So I downgraded to my previous version from May 5 and YES! after installing everything went fine again. I will never upgrade again with a Beta version. It causes a lot of trouble and frustration! I advise anyone to leave these kind of "upgrades".
It's bad that no one from Kemper warned for this really annoying bug!
That's why it's a beta version... sigh...
Don't use it when you have an important gig. Beta versions exist for this very reason, to be able to find these kind of bugs.
I’m not sure how to interpret kpahuitsing ’s kind explanation when you just use 1 cable like this:
KPA (slave) out > Soundcard (master) in
So no reamping but just playing the KPA through the studio monitors which is how I use my toaster 99% of the time.
We seem to have 3 users reporting that recordings made with the KPA rack/head with OUTPUT as slave actually work.
I think it's the other way around. It can sync to anything connected to the KPA S/PDIF INPUT.
So that's regarding the signal coming from your audio interface going to the Kemper.
CelticGibson , Nice Find! I can confirm S/PDIF clock slave works here too.
I would've thought the 7.0.5 changelog would've mentioned this for the Head and Rack also.
Thanks Kemper Team!
I can get this same result using OS6. Only it crackles every second, because it's not really synced. The green sync dot does not mean it is syncronized to an external device, but to its own internal clock (when the dropdown menu is set to "Internal").
Have you tried ToastME Editor? It has all, what you mentioned. Try it here - download, run, setup your MIDI device, connect to Kemper and you're good to go.
I've tried ToastME, it's a really incredible piece of work, coming from someone who's not even working at Kemper! The one drawback for me is the need for two MIDI cables, in addition to the USB connection (for Rig Manager).
I really hope the Kemper editor will match ToastME's awesomeness.
Just new to Kemper i can't belive a 7 years old product has not yet got a software editor. I sold my stupidly expensive Axe Fx to move for a cheap amp simulator which is Bias Fx and both had editor it's realy sad bc its a downgrade compare to the other i'm not event talking about Helix. I honestly barely used it since i got it it's not as convinient as i thought it was to dial direclty on the unit, the small screen doesn't handle well all the informations and make it unclear to setup for a good tone.
I can relate to this, an editor is a very useful addition and needed for a device like this IMO.
I recently installed a demo version of Helix Native and found myself enjoying the tweaking and fiddling with effects a lot more than on the Kemper. The fact that you cannot see all effects parameters at the same time on the Kemper makes it difficult for me. Also a dropdown effects box with all effects in there can save much time.
Even while my Kemper is right in front of me on the desk:
I'll wait patiently
I love these profiles! Thanks a lot!
Hey all. Just came across this video from JHS pedals:
Some pretty damn cool tips that can be easily applied in your Kemper rigs.
Some of the ones I found particularly cool were the reverb into tremolo (instead of the other way around) and the fuzz into octaver.
I tried to do this once before without a second Kemper. I did it by recording the "profiling noises" and reamping the noise through the Kemper. Then play back the reamped noise through the Kemper while in profile mode. I've picked up the experiment this week again. Might post some results this weekend..
The old thread is over here:
I don't get the idea. You can put KPA in your AMP FX loop also.
Then you can't use effects both before and after the amp in the chain. With the method of the amp in slot D you can.
I don't understand, why not use the import factory rigs function since no rigs are imported? That's what I did. Why bother with the Rig Pack is there something I'm missing?
I did that, and it cluttered all my presets as it imports a huge amount of reverb/delay and other stomp presets (and also amp/cab presets) that I got rid of before as I didn't need them. I would have to do this cleaning up again every time.
can we have the new reverb presets without having to install factory rigs like we did in the last reverb update ..I don't really want to have to re-install all the other unused ( in my case ) factory presets ...? or am I missing something ?
Here you go.
Very cool stuff!
Could you make a ZIP file of all the stuff on the download page to make single download? It would save a lot of time downloading to check the tones out.
Try profiles of amps you never thought you would try and see if they spark new ways of playing.
Break out of ruts by trying new tunings. You end up creating new sounds even when you follow your old habits around chord shapes and voicings.
These two tips really work for me.
What I sometimes do is browse through the effects in the Kemper and choose a random one I do not use regularly. I got amazing new soloing ideas by engaging a simple Vibe effect for instance. Also maybe try out some ambient delay/reverb effects. It will force you to come up with new ways to play which feels very "rewarding".
