    I ran these up last night and they sound superb. I've got the merged pack and ran them through a V30 loaded 4 x 12.


    Looks like I will be leaving my Ecstacy at home in future :)


    I have to say the prices for Guido's profiles is such that I think I'll be purchasing a load more of these...

    So I got my KPA last weekend and have been busily reading the manuals and playing around.


    Managed to get a couple of spare hours and decided I'd take it down the studio to crank the thing up through the PA to stretch its legs a bit and satisfy my curiosity about using FRFR speakers..


    Fired it up and tbh my initial thought was 'mmm this thing's gonna take a bit of tweaking'


    Then I recalled some posts extolling the virtues of the MB profiles for live use so I promptly loaded the first one up... then the second... you get the drill..


    Word had got around the place and after about 10 minutes there were 5 guitarists in the room and I was doing a Kemper demo! It got to the point of embarrassment..oh it can do this, and this and this... laughable really..


    Lets just say that at least two of them will be purchasing one of these and that Mr Britt's profiles are beautiful..respect..


    Whilst my heart says I should keep hold of my amp collection I reckon the're going to be gathering a fair bit of dust.


    Gig in three weeks so plenty of work to do!


    I'm a happy camper so far :)

    Agreed but my understanding is that this could only be feasible when using merged profiles as the cabdriver algo (or whatever it is!) is cpu intensive and hence the KPA cannot do this for more than one output.


    I'm really hoping that Kemper could implement this for merged profiles as it would be killer.

    Great stuff.


    Looks like you've ticked most of my boxes with your experience. To be honest I'm prepared to trade off a little of the 'real amp' feel for all of the convenience factors and the fact that hopefully the people who matter out front get a decent sound!

    Hi,


    New to the KPA and just getting my feet wet at the mo.


    I have a coupe of quick questions;


    1. Is the Merged Rig pack available on the downloads section of the site already included in firmware v 5 or do I need to import in order to access these?
    2. I'm trying to find some merged profiles to purchase - can anyone give me a heads up on the best places to go for these?


    Appreciate any help.

    Hi Kevin,


    If I understand you right you want the cabinet profile ON when you are plugged into the monitor output?


    The only factor influencing this is the Output setting 'Montor Cab Off'. If this is set the KPA will use the 'CabDriver' emulation i.e. a simulated removal of the cab/mic element of the sound. This is to allow Studio Profiles i.e. those which do not 'know' the difference between the direct and fully mic'd sound to produce a simulated output without the cab/mic. Note that is a simulation and hence the reason we have Direct and Merged profiles as they are more 'accurate'.


    If you are using a merged profile and want the cabinet on at all times for your FRFR speaker plugged into the monitor out then you need to select 'Output' and make sure that 'Monitor Cab Off' is not on. Once you've done this then the whole profile is sent to both Main and Monitor outputs.


    Hope this helps.

    Hi,


    Just a note to say hello - new KPA user (got it yesterday) and having a hoot so far!

    +1 for me on this.


    I did read a post of a similar nature that advised this was not possible due to cabdriver processor requirements however as per the original post I want to run merged profiles and hence this eliminates processor overhead issues/limitation of cabdriver.


    The ideal change (for me) would be the ability to be able to route to monitor and direct out (L&R) of merged rig with cabinet disabled and main outputs L&R to FOH with the cabinet enabled.
