    This helps immensely. I have tried some Fender and Marshall profiles. I will try the ones you noted from RE.


    I have been using a late 80s Strat Ultra Plus and an early 90s Tele Plus. Both have Lace Sensor which may be an issue. I have also a 90s MIM Tele with stock PuPs that I will try when I string it up. We are moving and I packed up my strings. Ooops! So I am awaiting for some to arrive.


    I also tried my late 80s RG-770. The real amps I tried (most are packed now) are an early 80s JCM 4210 Combo. I can get a great edge of breakup sound on it. Peavey VTM60. It might boil down the the PuPs. Oh I tried my 85 MIJ Fernandes too.


    I gotta say that the fuzz I built on a Carvin Legacy profile I got from RE and my Ibanez sound amazing together.


    Thanks for the help

    Congrats on the tone. What profiles would you recommend to achieve this sound? I am playing with a Fuzz I built with Silicone. I am getting some decent sounds but my real amps are more on the high gain side.


    Thanks

    Hi Pre-Amp,


    Right now I am using a USB to MIDI interface only because ATM I do not have an audio interface with a fully functioning MIDI interface. Yeah my $2k+ Lynx Aurora has MIDI ports but they do not support MIDI but are there for file updates and such.


    I plan to buy a cheap Focusrite and use it when I am ready to get back out there.


    What I have is similar to this.

    It is finnicky but at least allows me to experiment.


    Yes MidiMonitor is a plugin.


    I guess the ease depends on how complicated you want to make it :)


    But for what I plan to do, it is pretty easy.

    "Boy I am kicking myself. I was seeing the Wah Manual in Rig Manager move when I press play in Reaper as it should move. Like a dummy I made the huge mistake of assuming that all works correctly. That is when I send CC messages from Reaper that Rig Manager would update to reflect the changes. Not good. Since it doesn't."


    Well this seems to be working now. Not sure why it was not updating initially but now RM shows the changes.

    I finally got the bright idea to look over my shoulder at the actual Kemper 3 feet away from me to see it changing like it should.


    I wonder if this is a bug or WAD? Working as designed. I do not know if what I am trying is officially supported by Kemper or not.


    Does anyone know?


    Also one thing you want to do in Reaper is load midiMonitor 1.3 on the MIDI track. I was using JS MIDI logger prior and it is not so great.


    midiMonitor displays the data beautifully. You can see the Hex as well as the CC info.


    This is from midiMonitor 1.3.

    This tools make it a breeze to compare what Reaper is sending to the Profiler MIDI Parameter Documentation found here at the bottom.

    Yes please. I have been looking into this and have realised that I'm pretty MIDI ignorant. Cant even program a preset change.

    If you could point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful. I need "Reaper-Kemper for dummies" ! =O

    I am still learning.


    Basically what I did was to create a new Track in Reaper and insert a MIDI item on it. Then I dragged the right side of the MIDI item to make it longer to get the length I wanted and then glued it.


    I doubled clicked the MIDI item to open it in the MIDI editor. From there I clicked the icon at the top on the left (3rd from left for me) to open the Event list. I then added CC99 with a value of 53 and CC98 with the value of 8 to select stomp D (53) of my loaded Performance and 8 to edit the Wah Manual parameter. After I went back into the Piano Roll view by clicking the icon on the top left.


    I went to the measure where I wanted to start controlling the Wah Manual setting in Reaper and on the bottom left I added under More (CC0-31 14-Bit) a 06/38 Data Entry 14-bit point. Then I want back to the Event list and edited the 06/38 I just added to make it Linear. The Linear setting is what I talked about earlier. It defaults to Square.


    Then back to Piano roll where I copied and pasted the first 06/38 Data Entry 14-bit point to the next measure (or where ever you want it.) Then I positioned each point where one was low and the other high and copied them and pasted them along the next measures.


    Moving them up or down sets the data value. If you back to the Event lists, you will see this.


    It is easier than all that text looks.


    Now I am fooling around with trying to scroll through Slots in a Performance.


    Let me know if that makes and sense.


    Good luck.

    Brian

    Drained it!


    As I mentioned turning on/off effects was working and was easy to do. Where I hit a snag was that I was not setting the CC Shape correctly for my data. It defaults to Square.


    I added a few Data Entry 14-Bit (6/38)s in Reaper's MIDI Event List and then changed the CC Shape to linear. Once I had them where I wanted them in my session (measures) I copied and pasted in the Piano Roll view at the bottom.


    I HTH someone who may have this question someday.

    Hi


    I do not own an expression pedal yet and was trying to do something like this using Reaper.



    Is there a tutorial for this anywhere? i am able to do some basic stuff like turning effects on and off.


    I am not sure how to do things like control the wah like 49s in the video.


    I have gone through the Profiler MIDI Parameter Documentation a couple of times.


    I am slowly getting my head around. I am well versed in Hex since I come from an engineering background.


    Any help would be appreciated.


    Thanks

    Brian

    Thanks Alan.


    Any idea if what I am talking about might be on a road map? IMO what you are describing allows me to modify existing presets and save them as new presets. While technically this allows me to create new effects presets, they are based on existing effect presets provided by Kemper. This makes me wonder if there are any 3rd party effects presets on the market. I will look on the Googles.


    I have been doing what you describe and it works.


    I just have some pedals that I modded that I really like that I thought would be cool have in my Kemper.


    Thanks again for the help.


    Brian

    I am looking to do something similar but with my Tube Driver. I am not seeing much specifically on effect profiling. I only want to profile the effect and save it as an effect preset so I can load it in front of an amp profile.


    It has been a while since I did any profiling since there are so many out there of my amps and that sound great. To do what I want to do, do I follow the steps for a DI profile and then am I able to save it as an effect preset vs a rig (kipr)?


    Or if someone can point me to where this is documented that would be great. I went through the manual and quick start but did not see what I wanted. Maybe my search was not right. I did not see a video on it either.


    Sorry to hijack the thread but when I tried to start a new thread, the site led me to a few existing threads and this was the closest to what I wanted to do.


    Thanks
