Hi @patrick2099 if the volume is too high pull it back using the softknob amplifier (volume). I had to level it with my acoustics to be in line with my other profiles. Works fine for me but there are so many different acoustic pick up systems so it might be too loud for your acoustic...I tweaked almost all my profiles using the studio eq. If it's too bright for you switch it off or pull back some 10k or any other high frequency between 6k and 12k.
Thanks a lot for the very fast reply, Bert. I only had a few minutes to mess with it today, but I think that I found a big part of the problem. I think that the piezo on my acoustic is putting out more volume than my electric guitar with EMGs or a JB. Previously, I had been using it direct into the audio interface, with IRs, which drastically lowered the volume, so I didn't really notice how loud it was.
Yesterday, I tried turning the compressor off to take away the loudness, which made things worse. Today, I took the output volume way down, and messed with the compressor a little, and got a MUCH better sound. I need to go through the profiles and find the best ones for my particular guitar and caveman-like playing. I think that some of the "harshness" was my pick clanging against the strings.
Hopefully talking about specific profiles in this sub-forum doesn't get this moved or deleted, but if that is forbidden, someone let me know, and I'll know better for next time. I'm not trying to push anyone into buying anything, but I think that learning how to use particular profiles properly would fall under this one. I apologize if not.
The soundclips for these sound great, so I know that the sounds are in there. It's really just a matter of me learning how to use the Kemper better. This weekend, when I have more time, I really need to use the headphones to try to pick the best acoustic profile and tweak it. I have a hard time with the guitar volume over my monitors unless I crank it to the point of getting feedback.
Thanks for the profiles and for the advice!
