    Unbelievable ! Following my request people from Kemper told me the bug is fixed on the new release. I've updated both RM and the Kemper, and the bug disappeared. I hope you guys gonna take advantage of the change.

    I had a look at the tread Piotrmaj talks about. Most of the complaints are about RM. But I tried to populate a new performance in RM, then store. Everything seemed fine in the profiler. Then after switching the profiler off and on, RM being closed, I had this "crunch issue" on the profiler itself. I tried to load another rig, in one slot, using only the profiler, and then there was a discrepancy between the name in the main window, and the one on the 2nd position top left.

    I tried to start from scratch, not using RM at all. It seems to be OK.

    Could be people haven't been filing tickets. People love to complain, but often don't report.

    I haven't complained about this problem, but I get the same results. I figured enough people here had made noise that it wasn't needed.

    So...I'll be submitting one now. :)

    Sure please send a ticket.


    I sent my third ticket about performance mode. Here is the message.

    Every thing is fine in browser mode, but performance mode is messy, especially linked with RM.

    From a new performance in RM, I populated the 5 slots by opening a new window and drop the rigs, then "store performance in #xx", following the users manual advice.

    Then, when I switch from one slot to another thanks to the remote, each time the selected slot is changed to the default "crunch". So by selecting the five slots, eventually, they are all set to crunch, and no undo is possible.

    I redo the performance creation, didn't touch the remote and then shut the profiler and RM off and on. The only difference is, the labels of the slots are not changed (5 small rectangles) but the header says "crunch. Nothing's change in RM...before I ask to store the performance on the profiler. Then "crunch" everywhere in RM too.

    I run RM and OS

    Did you ever experiment this ?

    Yes, 4 of 6 on the profiler. On Rig Manager it's Parallel Path on the Rig page. If it's on, the Parallel Mix controls the amount added.

    Thanks to your advice, I've just discovered The Rig setting function ! The Parallel path was off, so the explanation is most likely green and Kemper DS mix the two signals.

    The Kemper Drive and Green Scream are both based on the traditional o/d circuit such as the Tube Screamer. One of the characteristics of those analog pedals is that they all have some clean signal mixed in with the o/d. Kemper simply models this.

    That might sound great, except I compared the green and the kemper DS to others. You're right the mix clean/DS is only present for the first 2 stomps. That might be kind of personal taste, but I keep on finding the sound artificial, the clean and the DS not matching.

    I tested other rigs with no stomp. By playing on the volume nob and my boost pedal, I can go from hardly crunch to reasonable overdrive, with a very consistent and harmonious sound. I guess the green original pedal is used by many famous guitar players, but I never got this impression. Why doesn't the mix setting give 0 clean sound added when set to 100% ? Then we would have a choice, even not the same as the real pedals.

    I don't hear that with the stomps. Any chance you have Parallel Signal Path enabled? That would send a clean signal to the out put. You can see this on the Rig settings page 4 of 6.

    How are you monitoring? Is the output for Master and/or Monitor set to Master Mono or Master Stereo?

    Sorry, what do you mean by Rig settings page 4 of 6 ? Set on the profiler ?

    In the output section everything is set on "stereo"


    Every time I try to use distortion stomps (mainly Kemper and green), I'm very disappointed. It sounds like the clean sound and the overdrive are played at the same time, even by setting the mix to 100%. I mean it sounds like I get the clean, and a fuzzy messy sound all together. By using cranked amps, it sounds like a complete coherent package, and turning the volume nob, makes the sound changing smoothly. Is there a trick ? :/

    I asked for help from the kemper support team. I sent them files, probably they assume that comes from my setup, let's give them a chance, I let you know ...

    I might have found out how to cancel an accidental change of Rig in performance mode. Switching off/on the profiler or RM is no use. By selecting another performance we're asked (or not ??) to save/discard the change. But while I was doing the test, I realized the header and the name of the rig was different ...or not!! Definitely not stable.

    When I choose rigs built from cranked amps, that sound natural, some kind of consistent sound, all the "details" of the sound work in a very harmonious way. But when I use overdrive /distortion from the effects part, It seems to me like I get the original sound and some crappy noise in the same time. I watched guys on YT setting nice sounds using stomps. There's surely something wrong in my settings ... :/

    Same for me. Being in the profiler performance mode, sometimes I switch to Rigs in RM and if I select a rig, it is stored in the profiler active slot. No undo and no store button to validate, or any popup saying "are you sure". Don't understand why this was never changed.

    That's kind of weird. I have two RM windows open, one with performance, one with rigs. When I switch both of them, the store performance function is at the back of the rig window and the editor at the back of the performance window. For sure not a normal behaviour.

    I kept on switching, now everything is fine for the performance window but the editor button is not at the back of the Rig window.

    I thought I understood how to select rigs in performance mode using the editor. But, Today I tried to create a new performance and I struggled a lot.

    Performance mode is selected (profiler) and let's say bank n°3 on the remote. One RM window (RMA) is open for performances (and bank 3 is selected) and another one for profiler rigs (RMB). When I select slot 1 or 2 on the remote, then double click on a rig in RMB, the slot change and the rig name is written correctly on the remote, same for the profiler display (for both slots 1 and 2). But if I select slots 3, 4 or 5, the names are correct on the profiler, the rigs are loaded correctly but the names don't change on the remote, and in RMA either.

    And worse, I play this game few times and suddenly the right names appear on the remote...and back to the issue some minutes later. The names are never right in RMA.

    Any idea ?

    I'm a bit confused, and surely don't understand the procedure. Let's say I want to change the cab for Rig A by using the one set for rig B.

    By double clicking on rig B , it's loaded in the profiler and in edition mode in the editor, then I can't do anything for rig A. What do I miss ?
