    Have you tried setting the decay time parameter to the minimum value for your freeze-enabled reverb? This works for me, no need to turn it on and off, and the freeze still works fine.

    Really? If so, this would be the best option. Having too many reverbs and delays makes the Kemper hang or behave strange ways.. So you just freeze the reverb, and then dial it in once it's frozen, and it has it's own frozen settings?

    Whenever I want to freeze the reverb, the guitar becomes dry, because the reverb has froze, ofcourse.. But the downside is that I have to apply a second really wet reverb along with the frozen one.. And then, when I unfreeze it, it becomes ultra wet and unplayable.. Best scenario would be if the reverb duplicated itself when I hit that freeze.. Freezing the reverb, but at the same time keeping a clone for my guitar when I play... Is this a possibility somehow?

    I got some helpful tips on Facebook on how to create an uniform performance by importing the same CAB across all profiles of my board. He used the term IR, and I didn't really understand him, but then he said it's a CAB.. So I've been experimenting with different CABs with great success.. However I could not shake off the feeling that IR meant something more than just a capture of a spesific CAB. Looking at Tone Junkie video of IR, I get the impression that it is a simulation of microphone placement? Does this mean that I can take a VOX AC30 that has been profiled with spesific mics, and then just swap the mics with something else? I was under the impression that once a profile has been captured, it cannot be changed.. Mic placements was already there during the profile process. The whole thing about changing CABs is really a mystery to me. How is it even possible :/

    Just close this thread. I spoke too soon, it was an issue where my Stage had an old OS out of the box, that's why Rig Manager on MAC did not see it. When I connected it to my PC and updated Rig Manager, the newly updated Rig Manager could see that my Profiler were outdated. Fixed now

    I love this; explain it like I'm five. We forget how much we know and take for granted.

    Much respect keem85.

    Well, I know very little :D And I often forget after a while if I haven't used it for some time :| I'm currently trying to figure out how people are getting good live/rehersal sounds from PA speakers. I'm struggling with it, so every bit helps. :)

    Not familiar with F5 monitors, but if you've eq'd them for the room they're in maybe that's an issue?

    Are you using the main outs? Is that what the F5s were connected to?

    The F5 has not been equalized actually. They are just connected with a power cable and I'm running it with a normal jack cable in to Kemper's left jack channel (for stereo, but I'm still just using mono). I did the exact same setup at the practice session. Seriously, the sound was so horrible, crisp and dead. It felt like playing on a plastic battery micro amp.. Kinda the same sound you get from battery amps that you plug in to the guitar.. Just louder, ofcourse.. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong here, as the setup is identical as I have it home.. How can these big PA speakers output so much more high frequencies than my monitors? That was my initial first question.. Struggled with it for three hours yesterday, and I just had to call defeat.. I see all the big artists use Kemper, Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, and I wonder how they get their Kemper sounding so great on stage :/

    Thanks for this tip! Can you explain like I'm five a bit? How do you leave it at neutral? Say I'm buying a nice Mbritt sound, or a John Mayer pack from ToneJunkies. How do I "neutralize" it? Just by putting EQ to neutral?

    I've been starting a new band now, and we're currently practicing in a small room with a mixer and two PA speakers. When I connect my Kemper to the mix table, the output sound is really harsh. Equaliser is set to neutral, so it is not touched, gain is set to 50%, not to get distortion. It is such a vastly different sound than what I get at home from my F5 Monitors. I get that different scenario, different room acoustics and gear can have an impact on sound, but it's very different.. My Mesa Boogie John Petrucci fuzz sounded like a scraping sound all of a sudden. Had to turn the top EQ all the way down on the mixing table.. How do you guys do it to get good stage sound from this device?

    -I've connected the Kemper to the Mixer's line input via Jack in to the Kemper's left channel
    -EQ is set to neutral on low, mid and high

    -Gain is set to 50%

    -I'm using payware presets from mbritt and TJ with cabs active. Sound is horrible on big PA speakers

    I haven't connected it to Rig manager for over a year now.. I was connecting it because I had purchased a couple of new sounds that I wanted to transfer.. The first message I get is that some of my sounds are corrupt, and I turned off my Kemper while it was syncing (Because Rig Manager told me to do so). I turned it on while holding the RIG button for thirty seconds, and when it was finished, all of my favourites was gone for once, but then a steady static noise is playing constantly.. Something is really bugged and I don't know how to fix it... If I click "Check for software updates", it states that I have the newest software already, which couldn't be true since it's been over a year? Any help is appreciated here. Can I for example reset the OS without losing my sounds and performances?

    I come from the 'If it sounds good, who cares how you came about arriving at that sound?' camp. So the real question is whether your priority is how it sounds aesthetically vs. accurately. If you only care about aesthetics, tweak away to your hearts content. If you care about accuracy, then you probably need a range of different profiles taken from the amp in question.

    Ultimately I care about how it sound, yes :) But I still wanted to know if the KPA gain knob is a KPA modified one and if it colored the real amp tone. Thanks for your reply guys

    I have a somewhat strange question. Let's say I take a profile, for example "Matchless SC30 R 2-" which has some gain to it by default. The amp has been captured as is, with it's set of microphones, certain amount of gain etc etc, to become what it is... But if I dial down the gain, will it still be the same amp that I hear clean? Or should I rather capture it with clean profile seperate instead to acheive a clean "Matchless SC30"?

    So in other words, does the "Matchless SC30 R 2-" has it's own gain when run default, or is it a Kemper imposed gain? :)
