Let them some time to breath. There has been three days since the last big update and you are already asking for more ?
At full right, the low and high frequencies will be emphasized by 6 dB, while the overall volume stays
roughly the same”
It seems it does the same thing as the "loudness" switch on 80-90's hifi amps.
Kemper introduced Profiling.
The rest relied on DSP algorithms to "synthesise" the result,
What make you think the Kemper is not using DSP algorithms to "synthetise" (actually modyfying, sounds doesn't come from nowhere but from a guitar unlinke in a synthesizer) the sounds which are coming from the unit ?
The stomps can only be modelled via conventional-DSP methods such as component modelling, so nothing Kemper could do would sound as good as Profiling it... in-theory, and so far, in-practice.
What difference do you make between "profiling" and "conventionnal-DSP methods" ?
Not so much. We sold a quite number of Kones and Kabinets already and only had a handful of requests.
Because there are poor souls like myself answering this question every other day on Facebook (not kidding). I'm gonna stop, btw.Quote
My question on the other hand is, since you are obviously not planning to use the Main Output for a mixing desk, but only the Kone/Kabinet.
Are you doing gigs at all, or usually play at home / rehearsal room only?
Or do you plan to mic your Kabinet?
I'm a bedroom guitarist.
This situation is solved very easily, as mentioned.
No tags needed.
If you want to play direct amp profiles solely through the Kone or Kabinet, and never want to use a virtual cabinet, then chose an arbitrary cabinet and lock it. Done.
The virtual CAB must not be switched off. But you wouldn't hear it anyway.
This "easyness" is going to hunt your support team down for a few years, me think.
Is there any chance we could have someday a version of the Kabinet which would be convertible ?
Prospective customers that might be persuaded to go the Kemper route because of the updates would exist whether they introduce them with a new product as a hardware update or not.
I don't agree. Providing free update and active maintenance on a 7 o 8 years old product increase the product value and convince new customers to buy it. It's one of the reason that allowed them to increase the price, imho.
I'm still confused about the use of the kone imprints. Can you use this setup as follows : Guitar > KPA > direct profile (DI) > Celestion imprints > Monitor out (Cab off) > Power AMP > Kabinet ? The reason i'm asking , when i tied this setup with Yamanha HS8 using DI profile, it sounded still like a DI and did not influence the Impulse response, However when i try a merged profile, i could hear the Celestion imprints on my Yamaha HS8
Ckemper said that you have to add a cab to the DI profile (and so make it merged), so the cab part can be ignored (!) by the profiler when using an imprint. I find that strange, but it is how it's supposed to be done. I'm pretty sure it will add a LOT of confusion to an already confusing studio/DI/merged distinction.
it's expensive, bur would love to try it - it is not available at the moment in Europe (should be at the end of April) don't look fir cheaper, look for better
But Kempes is advising to use a SS amp, not a tube amp.
In the case that you want to run Direct Amp Profiles straight into the Kone without using any other output, we would call this an exceptional way of using the Profiler. However, you can solve this situation by simply establishing an arbitrary cabinet (which wouldn't be heard in the end).
I don't think this is that exceptional.
It's probably the way most people that use a guitar cab at home or without a PA use their Direct Amp Profiles. Unless i'm missing something here.
Most of the profile sellers distribute "direct amp" profiles, rarely merged.
i have been trying to recreate the demos on Strymon website with my Kemper, especially the Cloud Reverb, but with no real success. Is it doable ?
What's the main benefit of this device Vs Line 6 Powercab ? I was very interested by the Powercab when it was announced but it got mixed reviews, not being as good as a regular guitar cab, neither as good as a good FRFR.
I know that CK rarely miss his target, but i can't help fearing it will lead to the same result than it predecessor, plus the tight coupling to the profiler.
First of all thank you very much to everyone at Kemper for this editor. I was a bit skeptical (to say the least) of their willingness to release it this year, but i must admit i was wrong all along. And the amount of features in this present iteration is very satisfying. So thank you again.
Now i have a few requests to make .
1°) The one feature i have always liked in RM is the ability, once you have selected a rig to preview on the profiler, to go to the next rig with the up and down arrow keys. This feature seems to be missing in RM 3 : when you press up and down, the cursor goes up and down, but the playing rig doesn't move. I guess the problem could be if there were unsaved changes that could be lost, but in this case there should be a dialog asking to save the rig.
2°) I have difficulties reading the actual knobs on my 24 inches monitor on windows. I have to bend near the screen to be able to see them. I wonder if the contrast could be somehow improved (i know there is a theme setting, but it's not enough), or if there could be the possibility to change the font. Actually, i find the Kemper display easier to read than the editor.
3°) I have trouble enabling the stomps. The logical way (at least for me) would be to double click on the stomp icon, but you have choosen to make it a simple click. That would be fine but it doesn't seem to work everytime, depending on the selected state (?). For me a double click would make it more predictable.
That's all for now, thank you.
THowever the moment Kemper officially announces beta testers, this inevitably ramps up the “any day now” assumptions and rumors leading to more disappointment if it takes longer
Do you think this is more or less dangerous than announcing "a couple of days" when the product is months from being ready ?
That would imply they’ve either been lying
The only fact that would prove (at least to me) that they had been lying all along would be if it was released at next Winter Namm.
For now, i prefer to think that they were just too enthusiastic in their communication.
