I came here for an argument.
As noted elsewhere, I've always kinda sucked at dialing in basic tones no matter which amps I had, so I really enjoy the ability to just select a profile that's already "there" for me and play guitar. And yet, I'm quite looking forward to the editor.
Where it will be useful for a guy like me is the effects. I'll still just select profiles that have the base tone I'm looking for, but often for a cover band thing I'm looking for the signature sounds from the record. For example, it was easy to find a fat rock profile for Still of the Night by Whitesnake that didn't require any adjustments, but there's also a middle section with arpeggios that has some delay and wobbly bits in it.
I was able to find the effects and tweak the params to match what I wanted using the toaster buttons and knobs. I do usually prefer hardware interfaces, e.g. a Mackie MCU for my DAW, but in this case the small screen means lots of paging around. Of course, that's just a design reality for this sort of thing as there's only so much physical space available on the front panel.
So, even though I'm not what you'd really consider a tweaker of tones - which is pretty much a required talent if you're using a Line 6 or Fractal product - there are times when I do need to dial effects in. It'll be nice to see how much easier that becomes with the editor. From the brief videos I saw from the trade show floor, it looks like it's nicely done.
This is my use case as well.
Great band, thanks for the post!
Just made performance 41, but instead of using drag/drop I used copy/paste.
Likin' it so far.
***EDIT*** connecting RM and Kemper through passive USB hub.
I've had similar issues as you in the past with RM for Windows.
My habit has been to drag/drop or copy/paste rigs into a performance slot.
Often I'd find that rigs were named incorrectly, or the default "Crunch" was found in a slot that I had replaced already with whatever I wanted.
I found that I had to use "store" every time I put a new rig in a slot. That was the only stable/consistent way for me to get success.
Now... I just updated to RM 2.3.9 and tried the experiment again. Like you I took a MBritt AC30 pack and drag/dropped ever increasing gain rigs into slots 1 - 5 of performance 40.
Dayum if it didn't work perfectly this time!!
I'm hoping that this isn't a one off, and that it:
a) Keeps working this way for me, and
b) Finds its way to you in the next MAC upgrade!
Missing features in the editor...
I guess he's taking it easy. I mean he's 70 year old so...I hope I can still play guitar and use my kemper when I'm 70. And still be alive too.
That's only 7.1 years away for me.
Still rockin' and lead singer in my band until I can't.
Yeah, I don’t know. I’ll check on practise tomorrow where I put the volume. I know it’s high, but not max. (Haha, no help there)
But given the fact that the other guitar player is playing a Engl Powerball II with matching 4x12, I think the brick and 1936 is doing quite well, actually.
Thanks, would be good to know.
I believe his guitar tech did all the profiling and tweaking of his amps.
short question to those who get the 503 error. Is it a white page with an error message or is it a styled page (kemper theme)?
White page with error message top/left for me.
I use the brick version with a Marshall 1936V. It has 16 ohm speakers, so the output in stereo is too low for band practise. But mono is glorious. No lack of punch or volume, and my ears give up before the brick and cab.
Do you find yourself needing to crank the output on the Kemper, almost max to get band volume?
I need to try a different speaker methinks. I've been trying 8ohm.
I have a Camplifier 290 (2x90w or 1x180w).
What are people using for speakers live (backline) for this amp?
Are you going stereo, or mono?
Maybe I missed it...
What will be the impedance of the Kone Kab... 4, 8, or 16ohm?
What model of KPA, and what firmware are you on now?
