    Hey guys, been a while. Hope you're all doing well. Was bored the other day so my singer and I put a couple profiles together for fun. Hopefully they are better than my previous ones. I'd like to think I've gotten at least a little better at it. The amps we used were:

    Blackstar Club 40

    Egnater Renegade 60

    Friedman Runt 50

    Fender DRRI Tweed

    Fender Blues Jr Tweed with BillM mods

    Marshall Silver Jubilee 20w

    Orange TH30


    Most are pretty straightforward dirty profiles and I think there's like 2 cleans. The Egnater Fuzz profile was profiled using a Wampler Velvet Fuzz. Hope you guys like them! They are on RE as well if you want to pick and choose which to try.

    Like with Rigs and presets an import could include multiple Performances. Let 's say you import five Performances from your USB memory stick. Let's assume you have four Performances in "New Performance" state - no Performance is ever unoccupied. Should the software then import Performances into New Performances 17, 59, 73, 124 and leave out the fifth Performance? And in which order should it select and process these Performances? And you will then search and find these as Performances 17, 50, 73, and 124? The import of Performances into the fixed Performances structure makes only real sense if you are in control of the destination for each.

    I’d be perfectly happy with that. I search through up to 1000 profiles to find a certain tone. That takes much longer than scrolling through performances. You’re acting like an arbitrary location is some sort of technological hurdle. It’s merely an inconvenience. Give the user the option to decide if they want to use it or not. Nobody is forcing them to use it, and in a pinch it might just help someone. If you have more performances to load than you have slots, then either load what fits and give an error message, or tell the user “There are X number of performances and only X number of slots. Please delete X number of performances on your Profiler and try again”.



    As far as what order to load them, alphabetical never hurt anyone.


    Now, I’m not sure if you’re just a forum mod or if you are actually involved with the product, but your arguments don’t hold water based on technology that is designed to give us choices. If there was some technical reason it couldn’t work, then I’d say “Oh, well dang. Ok!” and move on with my life, but saying “No, because arbitrary inconvenience rules!” and hand-wringing about locations and what to do if the available slots aren’t concurrent and sorting rules etc doesn’t seem like a legitimate barrier between what I’m asking about and why it “can’t be done”.


    Sorry. Long post. Maybe I’m just cranky. Played a gig last night on a borrowed PA and didn’t have my in-ears. Don’t like the ringing in my head. Happy September! 🤘🏻

    Sorry if it's out there somewhere. I searched but I haven't seen it anywhere and can't figure out if it's possible. Here's the scenario:


    Bandmate and I both have Kempers. He doesn't have a generic "clean thru distorted" level-balanced Performance on his Kemper, just individual song preset Performances. I wanted to copy one of my "one size fits all" Performances to my USB at a gig to drop onto his Kemper to help him get thru tunes he didn't set up in advance. Is there a way to do this? All I see in the USB menu is: Backup everything, Export Rig, Export Preset. Nothing listed to just grab a Performance and go. I'm sure I'm missing something. Any wisdom would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    I’m using the Headrush FRFR12 or whatever it’s called. Musicians Friend gave me 12% backstage points when I bought my Kemper so it was essentially free. I have yet to gig with it, but have one coming up in two weeks. I use in ears, but will be using the Headrush to provide sound to my drummer and bass player because they need to hear me much more than our singer/second guitarist, as I’m the “main course” and he’s “garnish” on most of our songs. Got one of those short pa speaker stands to get it off the floor as recommended, and I’m very happy with it so far.

    Took a few of these profiles and changed the cabinet to the Celestion Creamback 2x12 in the factory pack and they sound great! I didn’t upload them obviously, but they sound great through my Headrush FRFR12.


    I’m happy with a few of the profiles with their stock cabs, but there’s something about that Creamback cab that seems to make my ears happy. If you haven’t tried it with any of my profiles, give it a whirl!

    Hey guys, searched but couldn't find this. Is there a way to delete the profiles but keep the cabs from them? Sometimes I like a certain profile but want a different cab, and when you're trying to limit the amount of profiles on the Kemper for sanity's sake, having less amps but extra cabs would be nice for simple tweaks. Is this possible?


    Or, do I just need to go into the cabinet menu of a profile and save the cab as a preset? Will that keep it if I delete the profile? Thanks.

    When I loaded Rig Manager today to edit some profiles I made, it popped up with a window telling me to update. I updated, and then it updated my Kemper as well. It seemed to take quite a bit longer to re-create everything after the update than it did when I updated to 6, but it looks like everything is working.

    I’d like to hear if these sound better direct or frfr than my previous ones. I made a conscious effort to focus a little more on that aspect. I found one issue, since the definition was cranked on the profile I had loaded when I started these there isn’t any way to increase it. I finally learned to make my own template with settings all how I want before I start profiling. Live and learn!

    You’re welcome! I know I’m late to the Kemper game, so I’ll try to contribute what I can since there’s already a deep well of profiles to choose from. The majority of my use is live through a 2x12 cab, so my profiles may need some tweaking for direct use.


    Eventually I’ll work on some direct profiles for when I use my in-ear more so it sounds good to me that way. It will help me verify the FOH direct sound as well. Maybe I’ll start previewing before I profile using them instead of my personal PA.


    Anyways, hope you guys enjoy them. Thank you all for your contributions and critiques!
