    Thanks guys, I'll have another play tomorrow.


    His Muffs were Cornish modded to cut out the low end flub and fine tune mids.


    A simple start would be to set amp drive just below breakup, lower the bass, increase the mids and start experimenting with the muff drive vs the amp drive levels. I would then add light compression in front and then consider adding and EQ post amp. Add a simple single delay with several repeats and a big reverb mixed to not completely wash you out.


    I like to go back to the amp drive after doing the above and sometimes increasing it into more drive will get you into that feedback sustain happy space that his lead tone lives on the edge of. Adjusting the Amp settings (in particular definition, clarity and compressor) can also really shape things a ton.


    Any way I can mimic that on the Kemper, or do I just do it by putting an EQ block after the Muffin stomp?

    Hey guys


    Trying to put together some lead profiles for Floyd songs such as Comfortably Numb, Money etc. I bought the DG 1970 amp from TAF, and I'm having problems dialling in a good tone. Sources say that he uses a big muff pedal, but I find that when I add one to signal chain, it just sounds muddy and not that great. Any tips on getting a good tone?

    I find some amps that way as well, in particular, Dumble. I go for the softer tones as well, and the rmpacheco Morgan AC20 (with a Celestion Blue cab instead of the original), and MBritts 57 Deluxe (with the same Blue cab) are my goto's for this. I do vary the gain on these to suit my needs though.

    Thanks :thumbup:

    For gain they're OK, but I find for cleans their just too hard. I completely forgot about the 'definition' setting though so maybe I'll give that a bash

    Hey guys


    I downloaded a profile of Gilmours amp (HiWatt) from TAF. I'm trying to get the clean tones to sound 'softer', at the moment sound too immediate and hard, if that makes any sense!


    Maybe this is a characteristic of the amp I don't know, but a softer, bluesy tone is what I'm after!

    Very good point. I play with my computer in front of me, phone on me etc. Thanks!

    Hey guys


    I'm not bashing the tuner at all, but I find it's very sensitive. For example, say I'm tuning a string, the tuner with flit/fly all all over the place and it's very hard to get it to settle to 0. I was thinking about getting a seperate tuner pedal. Do you guys use the inbuilt Kemper tuner or a separate pedal?


    If you do use a separate pedal, do you simply plug it into the input of your Kemper along with your guitar?

    Hey guys


    I'm learning some Pink Floyd stuff at the moment, and currently on Shine on You Crazy Diamond. The first few solos are relatively low gain, but I can't get sustain on the notes. Any tips?

    I'm using the free AC20 profile with some light delay and reverb btw. No other pedals yet

    Hey guys!

    Sorry, I know I have a similar thread. This would really help myself, but may also help other newbies.

    How do you deal with option paralysis? Say you want a profile of a Mesa Mark 5. Where do you go? There are so many folk who make profiles - and it can be overwhelming where to get profiles.

    I'd recommend that you first review the profiles that ship with the Kemper, as there are samples of many commercial profilers in there. That'll help give you a feel for what they do.


    Also, "the best" profiles will vary for each person and for one are highly dependent on the style of music you play. What's awesome for rhythm & blues may not be so great for metal.


    For context, I play classic rock. I have a lot of the M. Britt profiles which shine in that context, and I also got some of the high gain stuff from Top Jimi. Then my credit card lost its structural integrity so I decided to just play guitar while it cooled down. :)

    Thank you! Yeah, I've done that - they're great but there's somethings I'm after.


    1) Some great cleans. I've found some profiles that are great 'on the verge of breakup' tones, but I'm after some Mayerish cleans.

    2) Paul Gilbert shred style gain. Not icepick gain, I just really love the tone Gilbert gets.

    Hey all


    I have a question about how clean/dirty profiles work. Sorry if I struggle to word this in the best way possible!

    So on a normal amp if you dial back the gain you get a clean sound, then if you turn up the gain you get an overdrive/distorted sound. With Kemper, when you buy or download a profile, does the gain knob work the same? Or do you get different profiles for clean and different profiles for dirty?

    For example. I download a Mesa profile. Do I use that same profile for both clean and distortion by adjusting the gain & adding pedals, or would I use a specific 'distorted' profile?

    You're an absolute legend, thank you so so much! I might splash out on that Rigbusters pack :)
