    Yeah I quickly set up and I get a lot of noise, even with the noise gate....then I switched the sim off and found no difference....I need to play around a bit...

    I'm getting a lot of boomy noise artefacts too when I strum hard. Not sure why as I've turned everything off as per the manual. Sounds a bit crackly too even with the noise gate set to 10.

    My thoughts are that if the keyboard could replicate turns of the pots on the front of the Profiler then it might save a bit of wear on the hardware. Obviously that would leave a limitation in terms of how far one could be from the amp as you would need to be able to see the display to know what you're editing. Maybe deeper editing control wouldn't really be necessary but 'on the fly' stuff for use during a performance could be helpful.

    I'm not clear on how this would work.

    Are you suggesting that a keyboard be plugged into the KPA?

    I have a keyboard with a wireless dongle which I use to edit the names on the Profiler. The dongle stays in the back.

    Mine only gave me the left channel until I found the Aux mono button in the output menu. Now it outputs a nice mono which I guess is what you are after.

    Cheers Frikeer. Haven't bought a Kone yet but probably will if the world goes back to normal at some point.

    Anyone on here know what a single Kone does with the Aux input if it is stereo? I read that the cone can reproduce the aux input in a linear fashion when being used as a guitar speaker with an imprint but I haven't seen any info about whether this sums the stereo input for mono output or if it just reproduces the left/right channel.

    No interest?

    I find this surprising since there must be people that just want to edit settings without needing to drag a laptop around with them or to use the (sometimes) slow to use front panel controls.

    Hi all,

    I own a modified FCB1010 with a single cable MIDI in/out + phantom power mod that I did a long while back. A peculiar fault has occurred now which means that the pedal still powers up with the mains cable via the transformer but not with the phantom power DC supply. I bought a new 12v/2A max wall wart thinking that the issue was with the supply unit because the voltage is getting pulled down at the DC supply side when the unit is powered on, but this hasn't fixed the problem.

    When I power the unit on with AC mains supply, the input to the main board is seeing the full 10V required to power up, but when I use the DC supply (via the same pair of rectifier bridges) I'm only seeing 4V at the input. Any electronics experts have an idea what could be causing this?


    This is probably going to be shot down now that the editor is here, but are there any plans to have more control of the Profiler via a USB keyboard? The basic options are useful especially for naming profiles etc but it would be great if "full" control (in lieu of using the potentiometers and buttons on the amp) could be offered via the keyboard. This would allow for wireless control of the amp (via wireless keyboard). Would this be something anyone else might be interested in?

    I've just noticed that I cannot copy all of my rigs to the Kemper from RM 3 when they are divided into different folders within the software. Each individual folder must be copied one by one rather than all the subdirectories of a folder copying at once. That is provided RM doesn't crash while trying.

    I've also noticed that nothing copies to a USB stick from RM 3. The software says that the files have copied but they definitely aren't on there and following a removal and replacement of the USB stick they aren't listed in RM either.

    These seem like huge issues which I would have thought would be picked up prior to public beta testing. Am I missing something here? Does the USB stick need to be formatted differently with the latest OS?

    hi timo, thx for the hint.

    i just re-installed win 10 pro 32 bit including all available updates. installation went quite smoothly. i then executed the suggested tool. it didn't detect any issues. however the installation of rig manager 3.0.79 win 32 bit still crashes with exact the same error.

    could this problem be related to the 32 bit installation routine? Did anybody confirm having successfully installed rm3 on win 10 32 bit?

    Same problem. Reported to Kemper HQ a few days ago but I haven't yet had a resolution through. Relieved I'm not the only one seeing this as I thought my notebook might have an unsupported processor or something obscure. I reinstalled Windows 10 (32 bit) also and it didn't make any difference to RM3 being unable to install.

    If the pedal range of the Morph Pedal could be reversed, how would this work with "MorphPedal to Pitch" and "MorphPedal to Wah"? Should these also work in reverse mode?

    And if you could set this by Rig, what are the implications for "MorphPedal to Wah" and "MorphPedal to Pitch" then? How do you manage to remember, in which case Morphing works upwards and downwards? Is it meaningful to share such a preference with other users via Rig Exchange, which might not even use a Morph Pedal?

    I think, this would be adding significant complexity and cause for confusion. Why can't you get used to the Base Sound being always the starting point at heel?

    Point taken. I can get used to it. It was only a suggestion.

    I'm an FCB1010 U4K user and when I swich profiles my morph expression pedal is usually in the closed position (MIDI val 127). As this is the value corresponding to the morphed state of the rig, the pedal must be rocked open (MIDI val 0) before it can be closed again to switch to the morphed state for the rig.

    It would be really useful if the expression pedal values could be reversed within the Profiler so that the closed pedal state represents the base sound and the open pedal represents the morphed/alternate sound. If this isn't practical, an alternative would be the ability to store information within a rig stating if the rig should be in morphed or base state when switching to it from another rig. This would allow for swapping base and morphed states within a rig to achieve the same result.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Not really looking to buy more gear if I can avoid it. I did think about swapping the morph and base states but the problem with this is that if I change to another patch during a performance and then switch back to this rig, it will default to the base state only and not the morphed state which I would be using more frequently.

    I'm an FCB1010 U4K user and when I swich profiles my morph expression pedal is usually in the closed position (MIDI val 127). As this is the value corresponding to the morphed state of the rig, the pedal must be rocked open (MIDI val 0) before it can be closed again to switch to the morphed state for the rig.

    Is there any way that the morph expression pedal values can be reversed within the Profiler so that the closed pedal state represents the base sound and the open pedal represents the morphed sound? If not, this might be a useful feature request. The reason I ask is that I usually back off the gain in the morphed state and use the "genuine" amp sound for the higher gain base state of the preset. It would make more sense (to me at least) to have the lower gain sound on the open pedal position and then to close the pedal to the more gainy sound.

    Thanks for the reply but I think you misunderstood my question. I'm not using an amp pack, I'm profiling my own amp and cabinet.

    Once I've created a merged cabinet with a matching DI & Studio profile, can it then be used with any other DI profile (with different EQ, gain etc) of the same amp to give an 'authentic' result (in the form of further merged profiles) and indeed can it be used with other DI profiles of different amps for 'authentic' sounds?

    If I understand correctly, when I add a cabinet to a DI profile, that profile becomes a Merged profile as the only difference between the two is the presence of the cabinet in the rig. That being the case, when profiling an amp and cabinet, I would have thought that the studio profile need only be taken once with an optimal mic position (more for different micing options obviously). Once a merged profile has been created from that Studio profile and its corresponding DI profile, subsequent merged profiles can be created using the resulting cabinet and differing DI profiles of the same amp without having to take further studio profiles.

    Does the above sound reasonable?

    My thinking is that I can optimise my micing and the Kemper profiling EQ prior to taking the single Studio profile so that I get the best possible profile of the cabinet+ microphone and then flatten the Profiler EQ for taking the DI profiles so that I effectively 'fix' any frequencies that I don't like from my awful micing technique but maintain the EQ settings of the amp itself (within the DI profiles).

    Any thoughts?

    I would really love it if the FCB didn't need the damn power cable. I absolutely second that observation.

    I don't mind using two midi cables, I just run two different colors to keep track.

    Haven't had it act up on me yet, but its day may come :-D

    You don't need the power cable. I've modified the FCB1010 with a bridge rectifier so that it can be powered via AC or 12V DC supplied via a phantom power 7 way din cable (2 way MIDI). The mod required a new 7 pin socket adapter board for the FCB1010 which was about £30 I think and then I made a 2 x 5 pin + power adapter for the 7 pin din cable that I use. Not a difficult modification at all.
