I actually sold my kemper recently.
Loved the unit for producing “recorded tones” but was constantly fighting to get that “amp in the room ” tone!
I finally realised that only a valve amp will give you that, 3 dimensional , “amp in the room tone” NO digital modeller or profiler, can reproduce a valve amp tone (in the room)
I stand by my initial assessment that the kemper produces awesome recorded tones and if your ears can get used to this then it is an incredible solution.
For me , the difference in “feel” and lack of a “3 dimensional , amp in the room tone” finally became a deal breaker. I play live and I simply , couldn’t get used to hearing a “recorded” tone.
I recently bought into the synergy system and o have never been more happy with my tone.
Lastly , I do not think the kemper actually “profiles” amps. My gut feel is it works off generic algorithms for amp models, cabs and microphones.
IN MY OPINION : Too many amp models sounded the “same” to my ears. I tried the kemper through FRFR and a guitar cab . I also tried loads of different profiles (direct and merged) - (paid and free) and I’m not sure this product , is any better than a helix or any other modeller. once again this is only MY OPINION. If it works for you - enjoy it.
I’m simply not a digital guy and can now say , I have completely given up on digital, amp modelling products.
I thank all of you for your help whilst I owned the kemper and I would like to wish all of you a healthy , happy life.
