Has anybody tried a different/3rd party multi effects unit with a power amp and the Kemper Kabinet?
I am considering a backup unit... Zoom/Mooer/etc, but am wondering what they might sound like in a pinch with the Kabinet.
Anyone tried it? If so, what do/did you think?
Use the monitor out, and set the monitor output to mono.
You could also use left main output and set main to mono, but that is most often used for FOH/PA.
The M key on your keyboard should trigger morph.
1 - 8
FX Slot #1 - 1#8
Trigger Morph Ramp (to simulate morphing)
Toggle current slot On or Off
Context Menu Options
Effect Slots, as well as Parameters, have self-explanatory context menus. It’s always worth to check those out, they contain many shortcuts for you.
If you want to, try an "Init Globals" in the System menu.
This will reset all your output and input settings (Clean sense, Kone settings, etc)
Things I have noticed/learned...
If you want to use parallel path to morph from acoustic to electric, put the AS in slot B. Putting it in slot C or D seems to make the parallel path mix control work backwards.
Bumping up the parallel mix, mixes in the amp choice along with any post stack effects such as delay/reverb.
prsgary If you have no need or desire to parallel path/mix/morph then the best place for the AS is in slot X (first one after the amp/cab stack). Make sure parallel path is off, otherwise you'll just hear the amp, not the AS. This position is best for stereo applications IMHO.
Use Rig volume to bring the AS volume up to other rigs in a performance. Add a Pure Booster as well if you need to.
So far that's it for my discoveries.
That was fun, now I wanna cover it too! Good job!
Looks like it now hauled in a new Kaos this morning!
I got it. It's supposed to have improved syncing, but I reported an issue in that regard where the current rig was shown twice in RM, but at least one other rig wasn't shown.
My RM updated to 220.127.116.1131 but I don't see it mentioned anywhere.
Anyone else get it, or have change logs?
Is this with magnetic pickups or are you running a piezo through the AS? I tried a piezo through it and it sounded like my speakers were screaming for mercy Before Christoph gives me row - I know it's not meant to be used that way but I was just curious
Have tried P22 mag (5708), 594 (5815), Mira (245), and Silver Sky with above results. Turn Kone off and it's fine.
I get variable results. Some profiles I get the hiss you describe, others I don't. I don't think its a Kone thing as a I use a Kabinet.
Try the Morgan profile, switch stack off and effects or other profiles as a base...no acoustic profiles as they often have treatment on them. It seems hyper sensitive to settings hence you need to play around a bit.
Hope that helps...
The hiss is one thing, but the worst of it is that an expressive/strong strum results in a high frequency, sharp, harsh, farty distorted sound. This only happens with Kone on for me.
Nicely done gents!
