    Indeed... without causing any offense, Kemper 2 is complete fake news and anyone talking about it like it is real news is an idiot...

    Three reasons why I dont see this happening. First, the Kemper stage was just released and to release a Kemper II would chance angering an entirely new customer base. Second, Kemper is still in the process of finalizing the RM3, OS7 and Stage/KPA integration as well as the current projects that have yet to be released (Kone). Third, Kemper as it currently sits is still leading the industry in amplifier simulation. No other modeler is able to get the tones that the Kemper gets and they continue to add DSP and are still not quite there.


    With all that being said I am sure there will eventually be a Kemper II but I dont see it happening any time soon. I think there is still a great deal that can be done with the resources that the current line has available. Just like with tube amps, there comes a time when the wheel is done and only needs to be refined.

    We know the original schedule, unless there is a surprise in store. Bring the editor to full release, Kone, acoustic sim and then stomp updates in the future.

    Out of this list I think I would be most excited to see what comes out for new stomps. Would love to see things like KOT, Klon and stuff like that.

    sorry I wasn’t clear. I agree it’s $60 . It was the updates I was clumsily trying to explain...

    I have yet to be charged for a single update. I would imaging at some point that they would change their price structure since it is becoming more popular. They could even EOL the version I am on and the would kill what I am on but that is fine, no software is meant to last forever. I already got 1 year out of it for $60 and still going. If it ends today I got more value out of it then a lot of the products out there.

    Hi everyone just wondering if there was someone with an extra access key for a daw that they don’t mind giving away. Asking for a friend :)

    Reaper is what I use. I have liked it enough to pay for the license. I can also tell you that there is not a difference that I have noticed between the free and payed version other then having to click the 'still evaluating' button. It is only $60 for the lifetime paid version as well.

    Based on that sample, it has to be something other than the KPA. Or the KPA is faulty in some manner. That's not a setting, a speaker or an interface choice. Something in the setup is all kinds of screwed up.

    Only way I could make my gear sound that awful is to actually try. Even then, it'd be a challenge.

    And that is why I suggested using the 'known good power amp and cab'. If it still sounds bad it would 100% be something within the Kemper weather it is a faulty part or not would be tough to say.

    Err I posted the sample, and we can see it doesn't sound good. You suggested that I go through my Marshall, which I was grateful for. I merely pointed out that I wished to use the Kemper by itself, as I purchased it under the assumption I could.

    Not sure where the anger is coming from man, but thanks for your time anyway.

    And after all these years I should know better then to post while on my first cup of coffee. My response was a bit out of line. Sorry.

    My suggestion was not intended to have you run you KPA like that but as a test to isolate the KPA but using known good power amp and cab. It is an easy test. If it still sounds like crap then try a different profile stock with no changes made to it. There are many on RE, I am sure you know that and many that we could suggest. That would further isolate the profile or the physical Kemper/firmware.

    I get what your saying, but if I need to put my Kemper through a tube amp to sound good it defeats the object for me.

    I bought the Kemper because the profiles by topjimi, Mix Berlin etc sound great in their demos. All done with no processing and no amp apparently. Just the Kemper, no post processing. Many on forums, in their videos, confirmed this. So I bought the Kemper and the profiles, and you can see the results I'm getting.

    I appreciate you taking the time to give suggestions, but you can see where I'm coming from. If I can't use the Kemper by itself, as the company claims and as others claim, its of no use to me. I shouldn't have to tweak and tweak it, or put it though a tube amp.

    Now you are again refusing to do what is suggested. This is the kind of thing that makes it look like you are only here to troll and bash Kemper. You are literally refusing a troubling shooting step because you shouldn't have to do it. I deal with stubborn customers that don't want to do trouble shooting steps all day, every day. You don't want to attempt to fix the problem, that's on you. It is standard steps in trouble shooting to isolate and eliminate or resolve issues one step at a time.


    Good luck with your sale.

    And then mike the cab?

    Might as well just mike the Marshall then. I mean, I bought the Kemper to record the Kemper. If I have to use an amp to get the Kemper sounding good, the price tag isn't justified.

    We are not to the point of mic'ing anything. Like I said the idea is to connect it this way to dial the amp profile in. The end goal is to get things running the way you intend but one step at a time.

    The Marshall does have an effects loop, but I tend to run my pedals in front of it. Are you referring to speaker emulation? That doesn't sound too great. From what I hear, recording with a mike is the way to go.

    The idea is to use the effects loop return so that the Kemper would use the power amp section of the Marshall and the real cab. This would allow for the ability to separate the parts of the chain. Get the amp profile sounding good and the move onto the next part. Personally I prefer to run my Kemper through a power amp and into a real cab.

    Done with a Highway one strat, topjimi Jubilee profile, spdif to RME Fireface.

    No post processing.

    I believe you said at one point that you have a Les Paul, is that correct? Single coil pickups VS humbucker pickup will make a tone difference for sure.. I do not believe that is the root of the issue but eliminating that tonal difference will help.


    For something I am not sure has been suggested. Does your Marshall have an effects loop? If so, plug the monitor out into the return and shut off the cab. That would take a lot out of the digital chain

    Your not reading what I wrote. I clearly said I'd given it an amount of time, based on the positive reviews. There's a sample on one of the first threads I wrote here. People ruled out the Kemper and nothing has changed since then.

    Without an audio sample no one has anyway to identify if the Kemper is at fault. It makes no sense why you refuse to upload audio samples and allow people to help. "Well, I was about to post a sample as things were getting a little friendlier. Looks like we're back to Line 6." is just sort of way to prevent anyone from helping you. Many people have suggested many thing to help and you seem to always come back with the "I've done that", I shouldnt need to do that", "Youre being mean to me, I wont". There is only so much people can do to help when you wont show anyone what you are specifically having issues with. Would you get mad at a mechanic if you showed up in an Uber and they told you to bring the car there? Would you tell them that you wouldnt bring the car because they were not friendly enough? Make no sense.


    At this point, you dont like the Kemper, you dont want to like the Kemper and that is obvious.
