    After I upgraded to the latest version, I have a problem with my remote. I can't load performance from Rig Manager "My Profile Folder", nor the Performances stored on the "My Profiler" folder.

    I tried to downgrade to 7.3.2, then upgraded to the latest version through Rig Manager, but it didn't work. How can I solve it?

    Hi Guys,

    during soundchecks I always have the sound engineer saying that my kemper output is too loud. Even at -20db! I usually have my Kemper going to FOH through main output. Am I doing something wrong?

    Hello everyone,

    I have serious problems with Rig Manager. I'm trying to set up several performances for a live situation.

    I spent a lot of time setting up my basic performances, all 5 slots filled with very carefully selected and tweaked profiles. I decided to create a new performance for another song from an old one. I copied one of my basic performance, than I put a different profile in slot 5. So, while the Profiler was in Performance mode, from Rig Manager I went to the particular profile, selected "copy", went back to the specific performance, clicked on slot 5, hit "paste." Everything looked fine in Rig Manager. I hit save.

    Going back, the entire performance have been changed to something different. The saved performance I was working on is gone. I cannot recover it no matter what.

    Some weird stuff happens when building performances. Actually if I try to copy and paste something from Rig Manager, the entire performance changes. Also, there are a lot of mismatches between the Rig Manager and the KPA. The names of many slots do not fit to their Amp-description, nor to the sound it should produce.

    What Can I do to safely build performances?

    Hi guys,

    during last rehearsals the drummer dropped a cymbal on my remote. Now one knob of the remote is stuck, it doesn't switch properly. It's one knob from the stomp boxes section. What can I do? Should I remove the knob with a nipper? Or should I open the remote? Thanks


    I’ve lost my kemper ac cable during last rehearsal. How can I replace it? Which cable should I look at?

    So, I cleared my head and experimented again, but still in trouble.
    Basically the main problem is: Why the reamped signal comes from the main output instead of SPDIF?

    My interface is feeding the Kemper through SPDIF, because I can see the KPA blinking. But I can't hear any signal in my DAW, even if I route the DI track to SPDIF output channel. Instead, I can hear the reamped signal coming from KPA main ANALOG OUT, which is plugged into my interface ANALOG IN. Which is the wrong fader and basically it reamps everything who goes into my main output.
    This doesn't make any sense, why the signal should go from SPDIF to Kemper then from Kemper analog into my interface again?
    Should I change some output settings on KPA?

    EDIT: I have a very stupid noob question. When you do reamping, you should have two cables plugged, both IN and OUT ? (even if the DI track has already been recorded?)

    I'm having a lot of troubles in order to reamp tracks via SPDIF and I think it's because I'm doing something wrong in the routing (my tech skills are not excellent at all..)

    First I recorded a DI track from kemper SPDIF output into my interface input to check if cables are ok, and everything worked smoothly.
    Then I followed the manual instructions and apparently plugged everything correctly (Kemper SPDIF input into audio interface SPDIF output via a digital toslink/coaxial converter).

    I switched the Kemper Input to SPDIF reamp and hit play on my DAW. Signal is coming to KPA because the green light is blinking, but no reamp is happening. Even more all the tracks are actually going to the Kemper which is not correct.

    SO I opened my interface routing software (TotalMix) and monitored the levels, and I saw that the AN 1 (the main kemper input, where the guitar is plugged) is having signal, even if I am not touching the guitar. This happens immediately when I switch the input source from "front" to "spdif reamp". Am I do something wrong here?

    So I tried to assign a different output for the SPDIF (which is named AS1/2 in TM) in order to have just the DI track feeding the KPA. In TM control room, I have assigned phones 2 output (a submix) to AS1/2. Then in Repaer I assigned the DI tracks output to AS1/2 (optical output on the Babyface). But this didn't solve the issue, because I still have the Kemper receiving all the tracks, and no reamping is happening.

    Am I doing some mistakes in TM routing? but still don't understand what I'm doing wrong.
    Maybe someone with a similar setup could help me?
    Any tips will be really appreciated :)

    UPDATE: With the submix fader (phones 2) I can control the signal who goes to the KPA (at -inf the input is not blinking). But still when I feed the submix the signal comes from the KPA analog output too, and all the tracks in the DAW are still routed in the Profiler's signal flow.

    ... and IMHO as a new customer you've every right to feel that way, @lesmin.
    I've destroyed my original post thanks to its overall tone's being pointed out to me privately (thank you, SwAn!). You deserved far better than that, mate! I'm PM'ing you too to convey my apology.

    Sorry if I offended you in any way; this would be the furthest thing from my intention! Your reasoning for our having a spring 'verb is sound, as evidenced earlier in the thread wherever it's been discussed. You'll get no argument from me or anyone here, I reckon!

    Hi man, no problem really, I appreciate your apologies, it's ok! I understand that your purpose it was just to avoid flaming and keep the forum informative and clean, and I didn't really intend to create polemics, I wish I should have created a new topic and demanding for specific spring reverb external solutions (like someone posted). Anyway, we are all here to search for the best sound and how to achieve this with Kemper, it's our common goal! So let's keep searching together for the best sound, following the forum rules for sure ;)

    This exact point has already been made, Les.

    I understand, but as a new customer I would like to express my opinion on this topic. I think Kemper is great, but when I bought it I really thought I was able to reproduce the tone of any amp, especially the Fender Twin Reverb which is my favorite one. I think also there is a lot of disinformation from third party companies who advertise profiles that pretend to be close to the original, and it's not always the case.
    I think Kemper is great for any other amp tone, but for this particular sound is not even close, and it's a big point for me. Just it! Sorry if it seems obvious

    For those who like to play surfmusic !

    I'm one of them!
    Don't want to bump or make pressure on developers, just to add my argument on this topic. After buying lot of profiles and made a lot of researches, I can affirm that actually there isn't a way to reproduce accurately the tone of some great reverb amplifier like the Fender Twin Reverb because of the lack of spring reverb. Yes you can add some plugin or pedal, but the result is far from the original and btw it doesn't serve the purpose of KPA, which should be an all-in-one unity.
    I stress this concept because I think that this is the most important feature which is actually missing from the KPA and in someway it undermines the idea of the Kemper being able to always reproduce the real sound. But I hope there will be improvements in the future!
    just my two cents (sorry for my bad english)
