    Just so I understand better in comparing the Kone/Kab with the Line 6 PowerCab...

    This is what I would like to know, and maybe it’s already been said somewhere. Will the Kone still behave as an frfr with the Helix? If so, then gigging with either Kemper or Helix, or maybe both, and one cab would still be possible.

    Original poster, that is my predicament. Haven’t been able to check latest RM beta as of yet. Hoping it all gets ironed out. I’m sure it will. At this point, I found a deal on a Helix that was too good to pass on. Brand new half price🤷🏻‍♂️ My original intention was to flip it, but.....

    Traded a MIM tele for a JTV 59 Variax. I gotta say it sure makes for a fun combo for live gigs. My Kemper isn’t going anywhere, but it might just become a permanent fixture in the studio.

    Updated to latest betas of RM and KPA and running on Mac OS 10.12.6

    The situation is such that RM sees my profiler and appears to sync with it. However, it does not allow me to interact with the profiler. That is to say that if I attempt to audition a profile from the desktop, nothing changes on the Kemper. Also, the editor is not available to me. No more crashes though.

    As others have reported, on both my iMac and MacBook running OS 10.15.1, after updating my Profiler to 7.1.7 and installing RM 3.0, RM will open and start synching, then crash and shut down. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times on both computers. Same result. I even tried installing RM 3.0 on my VERY old MacBook running 10.13.6, samre result.


    This must be some sort of Mac - USB - Kemper thing. Possibly unrelated, but whenever my Profiler is connected to my MacBook and the Macbook isn't connected to an external power supply, (i.e., running on battery only) my Profiler would freeze up and need re-booting (this with the official RM release before 3.0). This too was not unknown or unreported on this Forum. The suggestion was this was a Kemper- USB issue. Dunno.


    While unable to run RM 3 at this point is frustrating, it is somewhat comforting knowing my problem is shared by a number of others. It's not just me!

    Ditto here. Started off fairly well, but has since exhibited exactly what you have going on. Rig manager crashes, I reopen it and Profiler attempts to sync to no avail. iMac OS 10.12.6

    From this thread it seems the majority of the remaining bugs are from the Rig Manager users. I dont use RM, and the current 7.xxx betas have been reliable for me. I will however use RM once it becomes an editor though so glad they are taking their time with the PC comms stuff.

    I see a few people here with issues with the latest beta. But I haven’t noticed nearly as many gripes as of late. Has this latest beta felt pretty reliable for most? Just wondering why feedback seems to have lulled.

    I’ve used the TP with my Kemper. My set up was laptop through Boss volume/expression pedal to board separate from Kemper. I would use the volume portion for TP output and expression portion to morph guitar parts simultaneously. It works, but I like the idea of the loop if it’s doable. Fewer cables to deal with out front. I like being able to have separate channels for FOH though.

    I think I have the ground loop issue resolved. Hadn’t noticed the iec cable I was using had the ground pin removed. Would that explain why ground lift on the KPA was ineffective? Anyway, switched it out, added a hum x for good measure. Ground lift switch now works and the problem is taken care of. Thank you for all advice and insight!

    So, I have the Kemper successfully sending program change to my laptop via midi. It works wonderfully. I've been using a Boss stereo volume pedal, which also has an expression output to simultaneously morph rig volume down while bringing pad volumes up. This also works pretty well. However, when all connections on that pedal are made, (expression out, sound in, sound out) a ground loop of some sort is created . Disconnect either the expression out or the sound out, and the issue disappears. I've been scratching my head to get this solved. So far, no luck. So.... My thought was to send the volume info to the laptop via midi. My question is this. Is there any way to send volume cc to the laptop without it affecting rig volumes? Or (in my perfect world) is it possible for a morph expression pedal to send midi volume to the laptop? Probably not, but I have to ask.

    Well that’s quite a coincidence! I got mine in April of 2018 from Sweetwater:)

    Gear fest is happening in June and I’ll be there. Looking forward to watching Steve Vai and Billy Sheehan playing together. Have you ever been? I think I like it better than NAMM.
