can't hear your voice it's buried in the mix and muffled.
Yeah I like to compare mine in another room where my studio monitors are
I have to join in with the Chorus since there seems to be obvious issues with the current version of Rig Manager and (I hope) they are aware of this.
I have owned a Kemper for 6 years now and this is the worst shape Rig Manager has ever been in!
Please fix it fast! I can't rename Rigs amongst other problems.
Is there anyway to go to a previous version?
Found this cool Ampeg SVT in the Legacy Collection and it was just what I was looking for the "Sticky Fingers" tone. This one is set for "Can't you Hear Me Knockin" with LP.
It's "Hear Me Knockin" in Rig Exchange.
THANK YOU KEMPER!!
For all the whining I've done in the past about the interface and software, this is a BIG DEAL. That effects menu is a thing of beauty. With 2 knobs you can zoom in quickly for a preset.
props to all the engineers working to make the Kemper better.
One Day At a Time Mate!
Everyday I can get outa bed is a good day
And I decided to see how Kemper would like it. It's called and AC Tone. I noticed others had profiled it but not like I did all cranked up.
It sounds pretty cool, Kinda Brian Mayish.
If you want to check it out it is called
Gotcha , so I need to put it in front of my amp and dial it in, and then I would capture the amp with preamp in front in a profile
Interesting I did not know that I have a preamp box that is very unique and essential to my Gretsch tones.
... and everyone knows you always need more cowbell!
Great to see you back, Jen.
I've been MIA also doing "analog stuff"(see below), but I popped in occasionally to see if you were back.
Great to see you back also!
Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I always seem to be futzing more with levels when I go analog, but with SPDIF most of the profiles don't distort from too much level.
I also like having less cables, I'm just a home studio player always through the same setup. 2 cables for SPDIF will take care of most of my needs and save some inputs for mics and cowbells.
For any Brian Setzer fans, I've uploaded a profile called
Prince Brownie DB
The DB stands for DynoBrain which is a stompbox preamp just like the one used in his Space Echo. I know the profile is not a 63 Bassman but that preamp is a big part of his tone and sounds great in front of any Fender amp.
It's currently dialed in for a Tele. Use the definition to adjust for your guitar, such as a Gretsch you'd turn it up to around 7.
Finally got around to profiling my most favorite practice amp. The Fender Princeton 65 reissue with the 10' Jensen Alnico speaker.
There's quite a few different Princeton's already on the Rig Exchange but I thought I'd give myself a "shout out" because I'm pleased with how these have turned out.
I successfully translated the joy I have playing this amp to profiles. They are called.
Prince Brownie CLN
Prince Brownie DIRT
TopJimi has some profiles of a 63 Bassman (the one with the 6g6 circuit that Brian uses) that sound nice. But the real key to his tone (besides his chops) is the preamp in the Space Echo. It's like a HiFi preamp and makes every note stand out.
I use a DynoBrain in front of my Kemper with this profile and that's it! Now just many years of practice....
You are so talented. Luv Dio and your cover.
Cool, thanks. I wonder if this mod would make any more of a difference
Interesting. I disconnected the NFB when it was stock and it made the break up less "farty" sounding. The Weber speaker made all the difference and I really liked the clean side of the amp so I plugged NFB back in. But I bet changing that resistor value would be an improvement to try.
I recently purchased this cheap Monoprice 5 watt amp when they had a sale (I'm cheap $99 was just too much for an all valve amp) https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=611705
After putting some new JJ's valves in and a 8" Weber Alnico speaker it sounds like a Champ. Well I've never owned a Champ but this little buddy you just turn the volume up to 10 and tone 5 and play some James Gang
Anyways was so giddy I had to profile it so it's in the Rig Exchange under the name Chump
Just curious if the Kemper has a "Demo" mode or some kind of "easter egg" where you can get ALL the LED's to flash different colors like a Christmas Tree. Not serving any purpose other than look cool.
My cat and I enjoy staring at flashing LED lights and I thought it might be kinda cool
I appreciate this level of critique of the KPA as long as it's civil and constructive, it can only make an already amazing box better.
Not trying to be a KPA cheerleader, but I'm just a bedroom musician. I run my KPA into a decent set of studio monitors and it's weird how my brain will get in the way of my ears. I can spend all nite trying to get that Keef or Gibbons or Mayer tone and when I get up the next day it sounds totally wrong.
I digress I don't know where I was going with this, but this box inspires me like no other modeler I've tried. However since I'm no pro I don't have the experience of being able to crank those tube amps as loud as they need to be to create those marvelous tones.
