    The Focusrite 6i6 is probably the least expensive option, which also has a S/PDIF coaxial connection. There's a few good reasons to use S/PDIF, or to at least have the option.


    Your KPA and Mac connected to the Focusrite, and through the HS8's, would sound great. The Focusrite headphone output is not the worst, but it's not great. You really notice the difference when you plug into the KPA headphone jack directly, in an A/B scenario. I'm fine with the Focusrite headphone jack, it can sound good with adjustment.


    You could also plug your headphones into the KPA directly, and use the AUX in on the KPA, and then route your Mac into the KPA. No recording option that way, but it would allow you to play with backing tracks, or along with music.

    It would be easier to setup and breakdown using (2) TRS cables, instead of (1) TS and (1) TRS, it's a hassle trying to figure out which cable goes where. If you have (2) TRS, you can't plug it in incorrectly.

    Mine came in the same packaging, but was held tightly to the cardboard by the plastic over-wrap.


    There is a picture of the inside of the Kemper DI out there on the web, it's as solid-of-a-state as you can get inside there. Seriously, you could run over it with a car, and if the chassis survived, the internal components did too. Don't spend another second worrying about it, tomorrow it'll work just fine. Enjoy!

    The nicest acoustic guitar mic's I've ever heard, was a pair of Neumann KM184's. One pointed at an angle at the 12th fret towards the sound hole, and the other pointed towards the bridge. If you could rent a pair of those for the recording, you'd be way ahead of the game.


    I have an L.R Baggs Anthem on my j-100 xtra, even with the stack on the Kemper turned off, plugging in an acoustic to it, doesn't do it for me, no DI sounds good acoustically, to me.

    I don't use the fcb1010 for the KPA, never did, but I did mod my 1010 for power over standard midi cable. I didn't buy a mod kit, just found and assembled the below components.

    If you're comfortable soldering, this isn't too difficult. If you like to DIY, this is a fun project which works well, and is very convenient.

    The newer Focusrite 6i6, called the Second Generation, has the improved Mix Control software, and some other improved features like the headphone volume. SPDIF is where the 6i6 beats out the rest of the comparatively priced choices.


    Focusrite comes with the DAW software, Ableton, and is highly compatibile. You can use any DAW software you like with the Focusrite, but Ableton is definitely worth checking out.

    That is an amazing deal for a six core powerhouse! I wish we had such deals over here in Europe!

    I forget that constantly, because everyone speaks such good English here, that a lot of members are from the EU.


    There is an International shipper for Walmart apparently:

    Countries That You Can Ship Walmart To

    Using a package forwarder, you can ship Walmart internationally to any country or region in the world including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Kuwait, Malaysia, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom (Britain / England / UK), Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Central America, South America, Middle East, and Europe. It should be noted that there are personal shopper services that can help you buy from any store, including Walmart, even if they block or don’t ship to freight forwarders.



    I've never tried this, so I wouldn't know.

    Just ordered one of these, you can't beat this price for all you get, $999, free 2-day shipping:

    Cabling

    The PROFILER and PROFILER Remote communicate with each other via an ethernet cable. The cable included in the PROFILER Remote package with its Neutrik® etherCON® cable connector carrier has been carefully selected and is perfectly suited for this purpose. If you decide to use any 3rd party cable, please make sure it meets our quality standards.

    The diameter of the wire is the critical factor. The cable delivered with the Remote meets American Wire Gauge 24 (AWG), which can support up to 7.5m (22ft) length. AWG 26 cables have a smaller diameter and can only support up to 5m (15ft). Cables with higher AWG e. g. AWG 28 should not be used with the Remote.

    Cables in excess of 10m (30ft) might require a Power over Ethernet Injector (PoE Injector).



    Posinator is correct, 30ft is the recommended length limit, without a PoE injector. I've also been using a 25ft version of this cable, works great:

    I'll guess $499 passive Kab, at its' debut; but if it's entirely made and assembled in Germany, $599 and up.


    I probably shouldn't say this, but I'm prepared to pay what it costs, regardless. I love the way it looks, which is always secondary to how it sounds IME, but I already know it will sound incredible.


    What I'm most curious about though, is if there will be an 'imprint' process for a speaker, like the 'profile' process for an amp. Could the 'profile' process, include the 'imprint' process, or would it necessarily have to be a separate process.

    The waiting was difficult, I remember that well. But now is the time, before it gets there, to go through the Kemper created tutorial videos, for the 3rd time if you've seen them once already, and read through the deeper-view manual too. That way, once it finally does get there, you'll know exactly what to do and not be overwhelmed with all the options and functions.
