I have the same popping/cutting out issue on latest update as well. went back to 5.7.4 and no issues.
Got everything hooked up. Works like a champ.
It was popping some while the 6i6 was used but i set the 6i6's clock to use spdif and it fixed it.
Thanks for all the help.
now to learn how to use reaper...
Thanks for all the replies!
here's what i'm thinking before i spend money, just wanted to make sure i have it right.
Kemper VIA XLR to Focusrite 6i6 (i already have an XLR cable, is there any benefit to using spdif instead from kemper to 6i6?)
Kemper usb to PC for rig manager
Focusrite 6i6 USB to PC for pc mix software and recording
Focusrite 6i6 speaker out (i think it's a standard 1/4 inch jack instead of the XLR i use now from kemper to speaker) to my speaker (FRFR yamaha hs8 i only have 1 now)
I think the Focusrite 6i6 can also play audio to the FRFR via the PC usb for like PC music/itunes right?
some kind of software on the pc to mix stuff. going to start with whatever comes free with the Focusrite 6i6 and go from there.
will that work or am i missing anything?
Additional question i thought of as i wrote this. I only have 1 speaker. would 2 be of benefit? The guitar is always mono right so not really?
I think it would help playing PC audio though
I bought my Kemper back in 2013 for home use and this is my set up for recording covers that I occasionally upload to YouTube:
Guitar → Kemper → S/PDIF →Focusrite 6i6 →USB →PC → Rig Manager + Pro Tools
The formatting did not allow me to fully use my very basic use of arrows to show the connections, so additionally I connect:
- The Kemper to the PC via USB (for Rig Manager); and
- A pair of Genelec 8020B Monitor Speakers to the speakers outs on the Focusrite 6i6.
This set up allows me to use my monitor speakers to listen to sound from my PC (i.e. internet and iTunes) as well as the Kemper.
Here's an example of something I did using this method:
Enjoy your Kemper!
TY, sounds good! from you guys help and research i think i'm going to go in that direction.
Thanks for the fast response guys. I'll check all that out and see what i can come up with
the steinburg or focusrite are probably the way i'll go. Apollo is nice but way overkill i think for me.
So I just got a kemper this week. Already in love with it
I'm looking for recommendations for recording it's output to PC. I know almost zero about this stuff, trying to learn.
Right now it's running straight into a FRFR via xlr cable.
What do i need to do to record it's output to my pc? i'd like to be able to hear it on the FRFR while it's recording as well.
Looking for recommendation for whatever hardware i might need (preferably something that doesn't go inside the cpu)
as well as a software recommendation for recording and mixing (PC not mac)
something mid range maybe? i'm never going to mix anything for the public/studio just for myself. don't want cheap stuff but pro/studio quality might be over kill unless it's not much more than the mid stuff.
