I have some of your Helix tones, and now I have one of your Kemper profiles. You produce great stuff Marco
Hi, Has anyone created anything along these lines? I can't find anything on the rig exchange.
Been using the Kemper as my main live rig for a good 10 months now. I'm in a touring band and we all use IEM's and no cabs on stage. Recently we've streamlined things to the point that my Kemper and our bassist's rig lives in one rolling rack unit. This makes setup a breeze and makes a ton of sense when loading into the trailer etc.
When done with a weekend run and I have a week or so off, I'll typically unscrew my Kemper out of the rack and take it with me. However, this is becoming a pain - especially if this is in the middle of the trailer somewhere. Knowing we'll have another run in 4-5 days, I'll sometimes just say "screw it" and leave it in the trailer which leaves me without my Kemper for 4-5 days. I also run a studio and like having the Kemper there whenever possible. For awhile I was just using a 4-space SKB roto case and taking the Kemper in and out of the trailer whenever possible - and taking it with me... but this rolling rack we've been using has a drawer for misc items and cables, my wireless, etc... just makes much more sense for touring purposes....and is super streamlined with our bassist's rig to just roll in one rack for that side of the stage.
So long story short - I've been toying around with the idea of getting a second Kemper to keep in my studio and then leaving my other Kemper in the band's trailer all the time.
I can't help but feel like this makes me lazy or if it's really the most practical thing to do. Any thoughts?
Have you even told your other half that you have bought the first one?.... lol
To paraphrase a a 'Spinal Tap' quote, "It needs to go up to 11!"... lol
A few years ago I had a Mesa Boogie DC5. A superb amp, but after some years I changed it for an Engl Thunder combo. I preferred the sound. Years later, I have a Kemper, and took a trip down memory lane & bought 'Bogie DC5 Essential ChopKProf'. I have to say, not only do these profiles embody the actual amp, they actually sound better! The result is a real lovely gain sound, that is perfect.
Top range Engl gear for sale.
Bought for a project that never happened. Played through once in the house for 30 minutes. Pristine condition.
One of the best rock guitar sounds you can buy!

Engl Z5 footswitch.
Average price to buy this set up new - £1924 (GBP), yours for £1193 (GBP).
Buyer must collect from Liverpool, UK.
As I have got older, I have learnt ignoring idiots, and not giving them any time or credibility works best.
People attempting to 'court controversy' and not achieving it.
Attention seekers hate being ignored. It's an easy, stressless option, and it annoys the hell out of them...
Now uploaded to Rig Exchange. 'Liam -E650- Engl'
Welcome!! If possible, profile your own amp before you sell it with the settings you prefer. Should convince you that selling it won't stress you at all.
Well I took your advice, and profiled my own amp. The event was two fold- firstly I ended up with a cool representation of my Engl Blackmore head. Secondly, and this is almost better than getting a profile.... I found a way of paying my next door neighbours back for all the times their MF alarm has gone off... I'm sure they would have no idea WTF was happening, but the whole process was probably akin to an alien invasion.. lol
Thank you Mr Kemper
Yes Zapman, it's on my 'to do' list
Ok, so I have had my unit for a day or so, and I now have a reasonable grasp on its workings. The one thing I have not yet worked out is - Some professionally purchased profiles have no cab. I could not work out why a few of them sounded awful, until I saw the cab light was unlit. On further investigation, by holding the cab button down, the cab section was telling me it was empty.
Does anyone know why this should be?
Indeed 'V8 Guitar', the last few days have been a learning curve. I now pretty much have a decent understanding of this box of tricks!
It probably sounds insane, but I have only bought a Kemper so I can get rid of my Engl Ritchie Blackmore E650 amp & cab. I am purely looking to have 'that' sound in my possession, and free up space in the house... I see 'The Amphouse' do a profile, so I am hoping they will have a pretty good representation of the Blackmore amp.
Ok, thanks. I had not progressed that far yet. Maybe mistakenly I thought an Engl profile would already be good to go, as they say
I see what you mean now, I have just looked in the Rig Manager. Thanks again .
I have owned my Kemper for just a few hours. I have loaded some profiles, notably 'high gain' amps, from the Kemper 'Legacy pack'. My first choice profile, The 'Angle six fifty' is actually clean when you load it, unlike other profiles which are full of gain, as I was expecting an Engl amp to be. Unlike some of the amps, which are already overdriven, do you need to add your own gain?
I hope I am explaining myself OK?
Surely an Engl profile would already be full of high gain, exactly like the 'Engl powerfall Hi Sue' is?
