I am on Windows 10 and I still cannot get the shortcut key "M" to work for morphing. I set the morphs on the editor and they do not respond. What does happen when I press M is that the profiler list advances one instead. It's like the focus of the window is not on the editor portion when using shortcut keys.
Some things that I think would improve or add to the Rig Manager.
1. The parallel path toggle should be reflected in the RM chain so that position of pedals is more intuitive, just like on the profiler.
2. The tuner should be available either as a ongoing ever-present tuner in a visible part of the RM like the one over the chicken head knob or the full tuner should be available if needed via a toggle.
3. The looper should be available for rig and effects auditioning and have a way of saving the contents of the looper for later retrieval.
4. The editor pane should be resizeable given the focus of the editor isn't the profile lists at all but the editor functions themselves.
5. Allow for manual input of values under each parameter.
6. If using graphic eq, a graph should be shown with adjustable freq ranges and Q instead of knobs. It would be great if you could put a live spectral graph of the guitar cab output so as to offer a frame of reference for eq shelving high and low.
7. The editor should be available even when the profiler is not connected, if only to be able to build rig chains and enter values for rigs and then pass those changes to the profiler when connected.
Feel free to add or amend as you see fit.
Check whether you are in Browse or Performance - For me, m (and all the other key commands) only works in Browse and not Performance
I am in browser mode and the M only works for the profile list.
I can't for the life of me get the morphing key "m" to work. Every time I press it, the cursor selection advances down one profile at a time on the profile list. It's as if there's a conflict key bind going on.
I noticed this on the download for Rig Manager Beta...
"Note that public beta versions expire four weeks after release."
Does this mean we have to go back to the old version in a few weeks??
Access to the looper from within the editor.
They are even on this forum trying to help solve issues with RM on a Saturday. That's commitment.
Guys, I want you all to raise a glass tonight to Timo, Arne, Oskar, Georg and Jan. Without them, Rig Manager 3 wouldn't finally be here.
Thanks a million for all your work and effort lads.
Make sure you don't have any effects locked or the preset preview won't work. That's one bug I found.
Woah! What a surprise.
In my very limited experience, all drop effects ( by necessity) have latency and artefacts.
In my humble opinion, Kempers built in transpose is as good as any.
Indeed the Kemper transpose is one of the best I have ever used. I can play Sweet Child O' Mine down a half step and it's spot on and feels tight enough. I never thought that this would be possible but it is...
I very much doubt they will add much more than just the editor. I think the major hold up was most likely testing of the software on different setups to make sure the KPA doesn't lose USB connectivity as has happened a lot with Rig Manager. I would say once these issues are ironed out we should see a beta. As for the acoustic sim. I doubt we will see that until OS8 at least.
They hardly put the guts of the KPA1 into the Stage only to shaft new purchasers with the arrival of a KPA2. That makes no sense.
The only addition you will notice is the new scrolling preset system. Other than that nothing has changed that absolutely requires you to upgrade beyond version 6.
Yep they are totally amazing profiles. I bought the whole lot in one pack a while back and I play them all the time, especially the White One.
With Rigmanager, Kemper delivered more than 15000 profiles - much to much for evaluating (glad, they were not on the Kemper device). I tried around, maybe heard about 200 or 300. Most of them come with so much gain that the first thing to do is to put on a noise gate to make them listenable. But then, the overall impression is: the sound crank, shitty. And most of them are attached to heavy effects. Maybe for metal guitarrists, they sound ok. For me definetely not.
I'm looking for sounds that represents tones as Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore or Ritchie Blackmore have. To get into this direction, the profiles have to be heavily tweaked. Therefore, I must say, I am somewhat disappointed regarding my expectations which were formed by what I have read about the great reproduction of real amps by the Kemper.
BTW: I tested against a Headrush-112 and over my amps. It was unimportant whatever I used regarding to my impressions.
So I'm asking, how do other guitarrists and Kemper users come around with this situation?
Kemper doesn't deliver any of those profiles. They are user created and uploaded and since the majority of users may not have the right equipment or the ability to capture a decent amp sound then the resulting profiles are less than stellar. The only ones that are provided by Kemper are the rig packs in the rig pack folder. All other profiles are provided for a price by third party vendors.
Kemper would have been better off not showing us the editor in the first place. They could have just sprung it on us like they did the Stage
If they did that then people would be on here complaining that Kemper are stagnant and not doing anything. It's a case of you cannot win whatever you do..
Maybe they shouldn't have announced and shown the two products, (editor, and speaker with Kemper Kone) in January if they were nowhere near ready. Kind of like how they didn't announce the stage. But I get that. Because then people like me wouldn't have bought the rack (like I did) or toaster. I would have waited.
Well you made the choice to buy without any concrete delivery date on the editor. That's not Kemper's fault. That's yours. When I bought mine a year ago, there was no new reverbs even though there was word that they were working on them. I didn't care because I was happy with what I bought because what came in the box is what I bought. No vapour ware or promises. Just a Toaster that came with OS 5.5 and I was happy with it.
If the snapshots were permanent then there would be no need to save them in the rig pool. The Rig Pool is accessed with the Rig Manager and is backed up when you make a back up. The snapshot are not.
Could you please provide any source of this recommendation? I am not aware of anything like that.
And even if it was true, it would be nonsense. Who would ever develop upgrade process like this? It's developers' task to think about such cases and make sure thing will work out.
I am still waiting for OS v7 which will handle my snapshots properly.
I have more snapshots. Whenever i like my tweaking, I just take snapshot. And I have many of them. Will I need them in the future? I don't know. Why on earth should I save them as rigs if I am not sure I like them?
Didn't CK say that 'guitarists should not lost any amp settings' - that's why Snapshots were introduced?
