Wanted to show some songs of a new band i'm playing in. We started few months ago , so we decided to record some songs at our rehearsal.
I'm playing a 99' Setzer Hot Rod with a Kemper Profiler & Laney LFR 112
I will be using my kemper in the near future for gigs.
I wonder what if all hell brakes loose and the kemper just fails to start or just quits.
Is there a plan/ checklist you can follow ?
Do we have users here who experienced troubles? If not, than the better
But is there some magic button combo or usb stick repair...
Just wanted to be prepaired
Hey guys ,
I 'm pretty confused with all these " volumes " which effect tone and which don't .
Say i play with a frfr cab and my profile is too loud . Should i maintain a louder frfr cab setting ( which sound better i think)
or which volume button should i touch first for adjusting??
Hello again everyone! Finally got the Laney after waiting longer than expected
I think it sounds amazing ! There is so much clarity and bottom end ( not TOO much) and most of my favourite profiles translate really well ! I don't feel like i'm losing any punch when i compare it to using my Laney Ironheart and 2x12.
I used some Reampzone and Sinmix profiles with a guitar which is in drop B and it feels and sounds incredible ! I also tried some cleaner/crunch profiles with some other guitars with the same result It's made me want to buy some more profiles lol, in particular some Tonejunkies haha.
However I did feel like my top jimi profiles didn't sound AS good as through my studio monitors for whatever reason They kinda felt a little less "real" or "boxy", which is a shame because Top Jimi profiles are really fun to play through when i'm just sitting at my desk. Anyone have a bit of advice regarding this ?
Anyway, that's my review of it after having it for a day! Really glad I bought it and would recommend to anyone looking for a great unit at an affordable price
i have this amp to , now and then when turning on the first minute i mase this hissing sound and then vanish , this does not happen all the time . you encounter this aswell?
has someone found a speaker for pc that sounds like an headphone? like i said my bose pc speakers sounded good but they didnt go that loud
If you are happy with the sound of your Kemper through headphones, everything is fine in the KPA and you have to work on your monitor and PC setup. Follow Martin and Alan comments above, that’s what I did to sound as I wanted in the HS7s.
Work on the studio monitors first, before adding your PC and other interfaces.
I do have HS7 monitors, they lack bass response, their purpose is to help a mix not to provide a HiFi sound nor a guitar cabinet feel moving air. I managed to fine tune the sound using Room Control and HiTrim, and adding an IsoAcoustics ISO155stands which help to extend bass, if your HS7s are in a desk. I did connected the KPA and the HS7 to a mixer in order to have more EQ and control the shrill and bass. That setup sounds good to my ears and translates very well what I hear in my mixing headphones from the KPA. Anyway, if you need more bass you can add a subwoofer. If you want more “feel like an amp”, additionally you can connect an FRFR monitor straight to your KPA. I’ve added a Mission Gemini, but there are other options like the new headRush monitors. If what you are looking for is a realistic amp in the room feel that’s a different topic.
well i"ve ordered a laney lfr cab , and i remember playing a line 6 pod through my bose pc speakers sounded good aswell , i think that speakers are indeed not the right "match " for my situation
You don't know until you try. Someone else already suggested to try direct connection from Main Outputs to your HS7 monitors and see if this changes anything. Only if you do this, you can blame the audio interface.
i tried this and no big improvement , i iactually found that they sounded bit more shrill .
well i like to use my kemper an pc in one , like playing along with backing tracks , so my speakers are also my pc sound . But like i said through headphone sounds is killer , like there is more compression and detail . lik i see in the vids ,
the strange thing is that when recording it sounds even dull.
So dont know why the 6i6 makes your sound so dull , maybe its suppose to be that way because studio sound is as neutral as possible ? Dont know
I tried piping the Kemper through a 6i6 and on to monitors. It sounded pants. So I found an old cheapy mixer lying around. Fed the kpa and the computer stuff via the 6i6 through the mixer and out of the monitors. That set up sounds great.
I've no idea why, but kpa through the 6i6 and then the monitors absolutely sucked
what would you suggest ? using some software with eq ?
If you like the sound of your headphones, but not with your monitors, the issue may be with the monitors, or with their placement in the room.
what could be wrong ? i 'm using yamaha HS7->Scarlet 6i6 interface . no effects or software used
ok i think i found , it for no reason my spdif clock is set to 44 instead of 48 on my kemper , but i dint touch anything :s
Maybe next time... Good luck!
i have again encountered this again and i tried headphone output and its working , but i counter that my pc wasnt in sleeping mode , i just noticed a short message on my kemper , saying spdif -23 , like i turned my spdif volume all the way down in the system menu , but there its ok :s
So you're talking about Studio Monitors. Actually I feel that it translates quite well...
i tried with headphones and there is no problem big improvement and more detail .. , so what setting could it be?
Hi and welcome.
Are using a guitar Cab as a monitor or are you using Studio Monitors or anything else?
i'm using monitors , what i miss is the lack of detail and sensitivty you know , you hear on some profiles like the fingering and the wood tone of the guitar , sounds weird , but i cant describe it otherwise.

thx been a while since i visited his channel , now i see more kemper videos
There are tons of profiles , but frankly i found them to sound the same. Ok , there is high med and low gain and cleans , but other then they sound like they have a different eq ,
they sound the same . The quality depends on the profile , but i never managed to sound my profile like a real amp.
is it because of wrong settings ? or because i play with monitors?
I never manage this kind of quality/sound :
Because i find the kemper a complex system , i hope someday a user will be uploading a in depth video on everthing theres need to be said about the kemper.
Sadly the only thing i found is in german.
