Agree! Was just thinking this myself today.
Just following through on this. Finally got the v 3.2 prom installed today after having been away over the Xmas break and I'm happy to report that the problem detailed earlier in this thread is fixed in v3.2. Works very well indeed, thanks Dave!
Yes - have a read of my post 152 earlier in this thread.
Any love for the Victory Silverback profile loaded up by the boys? I'm digging it.
Yep I've had the Kemper freeze many times. Only ever happens for me when in Performance mode, with my MacBook connected via Rig Manager and I'm tweaking and saving rigs back into slots. It's only happened when I have been toying with rigs with the macbook connected.
However, so far solid as a rock when playing straight up.
the cab sounds absolutely awesome with FD profiles Soldano SLO DI profiles for anyone that has those as well just FYI, absolutely awesome, right up there with my favorite tonehammer cabs.
I have these SLO FD profiles - they are my favs...will def try these.
The other thing I noticed with the Andertons profiles is that even though they have Cab modules loaded they don't appear to make any difference to the sound on or off. I.e. They behave just like Direct profiles which is what I was expecting given how they were doing the A/B test.
Yeah I saw this too, but I assumed they didn't update the profile metadata. Being Danish Pete's first profiles (I think) I figured they didn't pay too much attention to getting the data spot on.
So all you 3dB guys - what is your band's on stage volume like? Would 6dB be overkill in your world?
Yeah 6db woudld be too much. We are a 3 piece, so I'm pretty high in the mix anyway...
Yes, I would love this too. I prefer to run a stereo guitar cab setup via the KPA main outs into an external power amp, which I do whenever not going through a FOH system. I.e. At home, rehearsals etc. As soon as FOH comes into play I have to run my guitar cab(s) in mono so the KPA main outs can go to FOH with cab sims on. It's the only downer I have on the KPA setup. Why there is not a stereo monitor out feed is beyond me.
Thanks for the reply, that's helpful.
FRFR just means Full Range Flat Response, which refers to any kind of speaker system that provides a flat response across the audible frequency range. I.e. A PA speaker or monitor wedge or studio monitors as you are using are all FRFR. None of them do it perfectly obviously, however they are very different to a guitar cab that is not flat nor is it full range.
Some Kemper users prefer to run into studio monitors or some kind of FRFR cab for live monitoring utilising the Kempers Cab module, whereas others prefer running the Kemper into a traditional guitar cab bypassing the cab sim module on the Kemper.
At the end of the day, if it sounds good to you then it's good!
Thanks for the rig tip, will definitely check it out.
I have just found a profile tonight which has become my new favourite! Rhinog's Marshall 1959 71 which is in the Rig Exchange is in my opinion the best Marshall profile I've found so far (and thats including profiles i've tried from MBritt & Top Jimi!).
Great job & well done again to Rhinog!
Studio profile? How are you running your rig? FRFR?
Exactly the same here, with the addition of some delay, all by morphing.
Same here. Originally I had a clean boost in the X effects location....but that was before I discovered morphing!
3db volume boost, plus delay mix goes up, plus a touch more gain.
2016 I got;
Early 90's Gibson ES-335
Assembled Tele, from parts. A "Partscaster"
Seymour Duncan JB
Suhr DA bridge HB
Suhr Koko boost
Xotic BB Plus
MXR EVH Phase 90
Xotic SP compressor
Kemper Rack - unpowered
Carvin 1540L power amp
THD 2x12 (another to match the one I already had)
...and sold lot's of stuff too to make way for the above.
Would love to pickup a Les Paul Custom
Eventide have nailed this.
Clean tones I just discovered this one and completely fell in love with it. It is brand new, warm, direct and has an incredible tube feel.
"Morgan Lee" from Danishpete. The profiled amp is a Morgan SW22.
Can be downloaded below the youtube video (which is funny to watch as well).
Most peoples favourite Morgan AC20 by rmpacheco is also great. In comparison the AW22 profile is a little cleaner and sweeter. Both are fantastic.
Crunch: TAF - Mars CM Drive. It is a Marshall JCM 800 Hot Mod. Very direct, great tube feel
Metal: 1) Edvaha 5150III Hi Sue Red by Deadlight Studios with Cabinet changed to "TillS Recto 4 x 12" and add some middles in the EQ
2) MESA BOOGIE DR PLAT by Rusgan
Both punchy and heavy and feel like a real tube amp with a 4x12 cabinet
This video was the thing that pushed me over the line to go and buy my Kemper! I didn't realise the profiles the lads captured were up for download in the youtube text, I should have looked....
In any event I've got them now...wow, they are awesome direct profiles for a guitar cab. Along with the Morgan mentioned above you have to try the JCM800 and the Silverback. I've found new number one sounds today!
What would work better would be an expiry date that auto-deletes the profile as a demo. Then you either lose the pack, or purchase the full rigs after a week.
I like this idea. It works a bit like my Eventide H9 pedal where you get something like 5 or 10 minutes free demo of any of the H9's algorithms per day. If you like it after a couple of listens you buy it.
Agree this would be great and I think would lead to more commercial profile sales.
Who dares to ask Jimi if we can get the version 1 Friedman profiles when version 2 is purchased...
I got the new profiles today, and I like them....
But after reading the above, I'm getting more curious for the version 1 Friedman profiles...
btw, I first ordered the 68SLead by accident... (it was early in the morning...) and this pack also rules!
Depends on whether you are after the studio profiles or the merged.....merged profiles in pack one were no good for direct with no cab, however in pack two they are great!
