    2) Virtual Instruments typically allow you to set up custom velocity curve. By default it is most likely a linear map. You may experiment with different curves and see if they give you a better feel.

    4) IMO most virtual instruments (I use mostly Arturia's simulations for all my keyboard needs) sound as good as original hardware and in a mix no-one will be able to tell the difference. Even outside of mix most people won't pass a blind test. I wouldn't worry about it. The only difference is really in resources usage. Simulations eat way more CPU than just audio playback, but on Macs with M1/2 CPU or any modern computer even this matters less and less. I typically start with MIDI but as soon as I'm ready to commit I bounce to audio and disable MIDI tracks.

    Midi on Virus works with macOS Catalina+ so the only inconvenience is that audio has to routed via external interface (which many people do anyway in studios).


    It is abandonware but still very capable and sounds very good.


    Any company can stop supporting any product at any time - happens all the time. Calculate your risk and enjoy the ride while it lasts!

    Mbritt's Dumble is my goto for cleans and edge of breakup. And +1 for guidorist's soldano hot rod.


    TimEkkelboom I think everyone has the same problem, but over time the list of useful for you profiles will become shorter. Give a solid try to stock profiles first before buying anything else. Many are fantastic (like EVH with Hesu cab for metal - I love it).

    Numeric prefix might not work, if KPA sorts using text, because 11 might end up right after 1. You'd have to use fixed size prefixes, like 001, 002, ...


    but I agree it is not worth it, because insertion in the middle would mean either renaming of everything under, or leaving gaps to push the problem away in time a bit.


    sooner or later you'll arrive at your short list of profiles you tend to always use and then it will become more managable in browser mode.

    W tym to Ci nie pomogę, bo nie używam paczek. Mamy IEM-y w naszym zespole i próby też gramy albo na IEMach, albo na PA. A w domu gram na monitorach studyjnych.


    Upewnij się, że wyjście Monitor Out (u Ciebie to z power amp) ma: Monitor Cab Off (znajdziesz to ustawienie w sekcji Output), bo w przeciwnym razie IR z Kempera poleci też na paczkę i będzie siara.

    Możesz podpowiedzieć jak podpiąć kempera żeby działał jak interfejs, nie wiem czy jest w ogóle taka możliwość ?

    Nie da się. Masz 2 opcje:

    • XLR / TS z main do osobnego audio interfejsu (chyba najprostsze rozwiązanie i zawsze niezawodne),
    • S/PDIF z Kemper do audio interfejsu, który obsługuje S/PDIF (to jest cyfrowe łącze, które umożliwia przesłanie 2 kanałów na jednym kablu).

    Just today I experienced another flavor of this issue. I set up morphing in slot 5 of one my performance using RM. Hit Store in performance #23 in RM - everything was working and life was good. I shut KPA down for the night (RM is constantly on my computer - even during the night, I don't turn off computer). Today I turned on KPA and noticed that my morphing settings were gone - not saved!


    I set them up again using Stage itself and so far so good.


    Similarly to vjelen, I consider myself quite tech-savy, yet this intricate interplay of RM and KPA catches me off-guard sometimes and every now and then I do experience minor data-loss. I tend to only use RM for browsing since my level of trust in RM doing the right thing in read/write scenarios is pretty low at the moment. You might blame user for not understanding how things work - but from my perspective if UI is asked to store something and it doesn't do it reliably - that's is not user's fault - no matter what. RM is the only UI which manages to screw over my data.


    And I really don't want to reboot KPA after every save to make sure that everything was persisted as it should.

    If anyone is curious how much faster UI on Toaster is with latest beta firmware (8.7.6.38112 Public Beta) I made some non-scientific measurements. I recorded videos of switching performance slots before and after upgrade. Aligned videos as best as I could in Final Cut Pro and counted number of frames elapsed between button press and full UI update. I was using 30fps footage taken with a phone.


    - switching from one performance slot the another is ~500 - 600ms faster - improvement is visible with naked eye.

    - switching from one slot to another using Remote shows similar gains.


    This is huge improvement IMHO and it feels like new life was put into our old devices. Previous firmware required way over 1 second to update UI, now we're in sub-second territory.


    Thank you Kemper Team for this update. :thumbup:

    13ms latency is definitely something many people would feel. "Unexpected" result in row 6 might be due to the fact that captures in this preset seem to be place on parallel paths, so load is probably spread between multiple cores.


    Not sure how many people are running multiple captures in series in real live (maybe if you captured drive pedal separately and amp separately - but even then the solution is simple: capture both of them at the same time). So from nerdy point of view I find this video interesting, but in real life most of folks will experience sub-6ms of delay which is perfectly fine.

    I used Powered Kabinet with keyboard. Had to put EQ in between and with its help I was able to get pretty good piano sound. YMMV, but as a stop gap solution I don't see a problem - you'd only need to add some EQ to your Stereo Out bus.

    I used to have a guitar - Ibanez JS100. Although it was beautiful I never really liked it because it was impossible to set it up the way I wanted. Last year I took it to a luthier workshop in Warsaw and they managed to identify shimming issue and fixed it and now JS100 plays well. This luthier workshop was small (just two dudes sitting in a dungeon) but I noticed 3 unfamiliar guitars hanging on the wall and asked about them. They told me that they make their own guitars in their spare time and let me try them out. One of them just felt amazing - their interpretation of Telecaster - I’m not going to lie - love from first sight&feel :-). So I ordered one last August and it arrived recently. It is called GHOST and looks like this:


    swamp ash body, maple neck (satin), I don't know what wood is on top (flame maple maybe?) but I love it!, pickups are their own and have J90's vibe.





    They are supposed to be "dynamic IRs" in which response changes according to playing dynamics.


    This Amp X seems to be the most interesting product developed recently.

    No tak, to przeskoczyłeś kilka generacji, i masz szczęście, bo pierwsze cyfrowe efekty były bardzo cinkie :-) , ale dobra wiadomość jest taka, że Kemper, jeśli Ci podpasuje jego filozofia, może być ostatnim sprzętem, który musisz opanować - ja mam swojego od 2016 roku i nawet nie myślę, o niczym nowszym - brzmi nieziemsko za każdym razem i sprawdza się bardzo dobrze w warunkach koncertowych. Pozdrawiam i miłego grania!

    Musisz przejść do Performance Modę używając "Chicken Knob", wybrać performance (używając strzałek góra dół). Każdy performance ma miejsce na 5 presetów. Jak masz nowy sprzęt to jest duża szansa, że zobaczysz slot o nazwie "Crunch". w tym momencie możesz użyć pokrętła "Browse" i wybrać swój ulubiony Rig. Potem strzałka w prawo, co sprawi, że przejdziesz to kolejnego slotu, pokrętło Browse, itp. itd.


    Na końcu "Store", nadaj sensowną nazwę, Store jeszcze raz i powinno być git.


    Pamiętaj, że Rigi są _kopiowane_ to Performance mode. Oznacza to, że późniejsze zmiany w Browse mode nie mają zastosowania w Performance mode. Możesz swobodnie edytować Rigi w Performance mode (pamiętaj, żeby zapamiętywać zmiany!!!) - nie wpływa to na kopię Rigu znajdująca się w Browse mode.


    Kemper ma bardzo specyficzny workflow (nie każdy go lubi) i jeśli chcesz naprawdę wykorzystać go w 100% i nie być sfrustrowanym to będziesz musiał poświecić trochę czasu na przestudiowanie instrukcji obsługi. Ale jak już zatrybisz jak wszystko działa to jest to bardzo przyjemne, niezawodne, fantastycznie brzmiące urządzenie.
