From the Manual :
And now a short intermission with real tube amps, just to compare the "fizziness" to some KPA profiles ........
Standard question first : Does it sound normal or fizzy with headphones out
of the KPA´s headphones output ?
"No changes to either units" you say .. Any other things that have changed ?
Cables , interface settings , mixer settings in Logic , phase buttons pressed ??
Disconnect everything except headphones and guitar and work your way
forward connecting one cable at the time to where the fizz starts ......
Hmmm ..... Maybe you home built cab can´t handle low frequences like 65 Hz ?
if you have an oscillator in any device or as a free app in your phone , connect
it to your KPA and run a sinus wave down from approx 120 Hz to 50 Hz and
se what happens. Drop C is 65 Hz
Any compressor activated in Stomp or Amplifier section ?
I think there´s a lot of pedals out there that has noisy buttons ,
mostly the ones with latch type buttons, not momentary buttons
So not only a Kemper "problem" .....
My Voodoo Lab Pro buttons makes a little noice, but nothing that bother
me even at low volume, and nothing that can be heard when recording
Maybe you can attach some sound absorbent material to the
sheet metal inside to limit the resonance ?
And I´m almost 100% sure that any of my guitars would make a sound when I hit a note
Nice playing and tone here
Put the studio eq in slot X and adjust high cut to around 6 - 7 kHz
and amount to around 5 . Experiment till you like what you hear
And then you put your microphone into the Focusrite and you´re back on square one
Most of the profiles are already recorded with microphone so it would be a very strange sound I think ......
A second hand ART X-11 works fine and would probably be very cheep
I used one with my KPA for a couple of weeks before I got my Voodoo Lab Pro
Any clean Ampeg SVT, Acoustic or even Polytone might work
Depends much on what kind of mic you use and with or without
a preamp ( Fishman or other ) .....
Check out Bommel , he has a lot of bass rigs on Rig Exchange
Easy to do "mistakes" when exited over new stuff
The Manual is often your best friend when confused and
then there´s lots of friends to make on this amazing forum
They are there and they have blue LED´s
Page 165 & 168 in manual 7.0
Secondly, look at how long Yamaha has been making solid pro-audio gear... as well as motorbikes and God knows what else. Their mixers are legendary as reliable workhorses, and IMHO and in my experience even "trivial" things such as input jacks ooze quality and toughness compared to other offerings. My Yamaha desks vs Mackie, for example, were chalk-and-cheese in this area.
This ! Yamaha is like Amazon "light" ... They got "everything"
My latest quality product from them was my DXR-10 ( Dec 2018 )
that I use with my KPA
Also have a DX7 from 1983 that I still use a few days every week ......
Works and sound great
Yeah ... The pursuit for the perfect sound is indeed a rabbit hole and when we think we´re
almost there, the inspiration to make and play musik might be long gone .....
In other words : don´t forget why you buy new stuff = for the love of music
( And to earn a few bucks on the side ........ )
Regardless of witch monitor you choose the most important thing
is that your room has good acoustic, but everyone knows that ... Right ?
Hi ! You´ll probably get as many suggestions that there are members of this forum,
but my choice many years ago was a pair of Adam A7x . I´ll never regret that
They where second hand and I got them for approx £500
Oh them modern world problems ......
A "hassle to unplug" .... Well , maybe this
product can solve the "problem" for you :
Or simply put some dukt tape over the LED
I myself always unplug all my gear when not in use, in case of thunderstorms that might result in electric spikes
on the grid. Or component failure within the unit that might cause fire ....
Cheep "insurance" for your gear and home compared to the hassle of buying new gear
or rebuilding your house .... But thats me
Only complaint is that it is too short for being labeled "Prog"
Hello everyone ....
Not trying to be a "smart ass" here, but why not download apps with
metronome, drum machine or GarageBand drummer to your cellphone or
iPad or whatever you use, and then plug it into "Alternative Input" on the back
of the KPA ? Then you can even have blinking lights on the phone / pad screen ....
Just thinking out "loud"....... Don´t hate me
