    I know. I just want it louder but perceive it being more distorted and I don't know why

    Same here...its nothing to do with the KPA, in fact the KPA and other digital stuff takes some variation out of the equation ( tube temp, mike placement, type of mike etc).

    So you have the same problem?

    I I'd like to be in that situation.

    My "problem" is the IEM always sound different. I use my own earphones, and we ask for the IEM system in our Rider. And that's it: the sound is always different. Sometimes it's incredibly beautiful (if you can say a raw electric guitar rock sound is incredibly beautiful), sometimes it's not that good. Sometimes it's bad. Always our own sound man, too.

    Yes, yes, different gear, different sound, but I've played live with IEMs more than 200 times and I'm sure I haven't used more than a few IEM different systems/brands. AND for little private gigs, I use my (cheap) system. And it also changes depending on, I guess, the rest of the gear.

    So if I don't feel comfortable enough, I try a little EQing. But as long as I know the PA sound is great, I'll be OK (if things are not too bad onstage).

    What bothers me with my Kemper, home Vs rehearsals (frfr in both cases, louder at rehearsals) is that the louder I set the Master Volume, the more distortion I get. That's what I'd expect from a real tube amp, not from my Kemper, so I don't know what's wrong. Any ideas? Maybe that's a thing to comment on a new thread.

    A lot of people fell over the default behavior with the Stage and talked about "loosing the edits".

    So for now, when Rig Manager is connected, the "fast slot switch" that discards edits (enabling/disabling stomps is an edit) is replaced by the edits itself. This way, you can edit your performances with RM and have the old behavior in live situations (no RM).

    We will discuss about an option switch for this.

    Thank you very much, Timo.

    That option switch would be fantastic.

    Just updated to the last OS and find something very strange:

    With rig manager connected to the Stage, in Performance mode: I'm in any slot and switch some effects on or off. Then I change to another slot, and when I go back to the first slot, the effects are not as I saved in the Performance, but in the last state I switched them.

    When I switch Rig Manager off, things work normally: When I change slots, things are the way I saved them.

    I think it would be nice to be able to choose between both behaviours (I've thought about that earlier in time). I don't know it this is a new feature.

    Thank you.

    What you get from current FRFR solutions is the sound of a mic'd cabinet. IRs always include the response from the microphone along with the speaker. A speaker with a SM57 alone will sound different than one mic'd with a 57 and a ribbon mic, which will sound different if you add a room mic. They're all the same speaker, but you will get *wildly* different results.

    The Kone is meant to give you the sound of *just* the speaker in a cabinet. The same as you would with a regular amp and speaker.

    To me, the Kone makes direct profiles more valuable. You can remove the cabinet from a merged profile and it'll work great. But having an amp-only profile coupled with the Kone? That should be epic.

    That all makes sense. Very interesting. Now I think it could be a great step forward.

    What happens when playing live? I guess not a mike to the Kone.

    So what do you send to the mixer? That signal needs some kind of guitar speaker emulation, too.

    Thank you very much, Ruefus.

    I think it isn't that easy. Just raising or lowering the level

    of a performance means a lot of going back and comparing with other performances, rig by rig. And you can find some unexpected behaviors.

    I'm a newbie who is still getting used to the Kemper, so I haven't suffered that, but that day could come soon.

    Maybe it would be a good idea, when creating a performance, to "sacrifice" one of the performance's slots and place there a rig (always the same one, of course) you know well and use it to level the other rigs in that Performance. When it's done, you can put another rig in the sacrified slot.

    I'm sure some people do that long ago, so excuse me (as I said, I'm new, here.)

    45$ is for one hour?

    In case yes, you don't have a lot of time, so setting up your gear, trying "new" cabs, miking them until you are satisfied, checking the new profiles... I'd work with your own cab. The one you know and you like so much.

    Later, with the acquired experience, you can go back and try the cabs in the studio.

    Have fun and tell us about it :)

    Yes, your earlier explanation was very reasonable.

    They also say in the mail that they DIDN'T design the new Comb for the sustain thing but for the buzz.

    I'm also willing to try the new model, but it's supposed to be available one year after the Bass version.

    I emailed Evertune asking for the new Comb and the Sustain. I think I should share their answer because it is official information:

    "The new comb was created because some customers were experiencing buzzing issues, however the new comb presses the saddles together with more force which slightly improves sustain and resonance. It is possible to order the comb from us and install it on your guitar if you wish to do so. We do have installation instructions available here:…w_to_install_a_new_saddle

    The only other thing you can try is to use lighter gauges. It seems that the resonance and sustain with floating saddles in general seems to be impacted with stiff strings, which is most apparent when playing notes high up the neck, as the shorter length of the string will make it very stiff. Using thinner gauges will make the strings less stiff and should help with the sustain.

    Yes, all new guitars are now shipping with the new larger comb, we no longer produce the old comb anymore but you might still find it on some older guitars.

    Best regards,



    It looks like it's solved.

    It was as easy as uninstalling the "Wireless Network adapter", as you suggested. Then I clicked in "detect new hardware". Nothing seemed to happen, then. But no more Blue Screens and Wi-Fi works properly.

    I'm very happy, now. I was scared. Couldn't think it would be so easy.

    Thank you very much, again!

    3 Years ago i bought my first Evertune Guitar... A cheap VGS Guitar to check out Evertune. Since then i bought another 3 Evertune Guitars. Another 2 Guitars with Floyd Rose Tremolo are now @ guitarcare to install an Evertunebridge ... I love Evertune?

    Was that VGS a Roadcruiser?

    In case yes, do you like the pickups?

    I just checked out pricing, so my interest is quite a bit lower now ;)


    Man, the one I got was so cheap that I took the risk. And now I want a better one.

    I recently recorded some guitars for a friend who is making strange songs. At home. First time recording with Evertune. It was SO nice not worrying about being in tune, and being able to hit hard on the strings... Gratifying. I just had to play and think about the song and what I could do with it. Great experience. A new world. Nothing disturbing the fun of it.

    I think it's worth the money and encourage you to try one, anyway;)

    Some say they lost some sustain. Some, like me, didn't loose anything. Some complain the same about less sustain with floating trems like FR or any of Ibanez versions. I've never had less sustain with either FR or Ibanez trems. I guess the complainers don't now a shite about how to set up a guitar properly. Now evertune released a new comb that is said to give back more sustain for those that lost some of it.

    Yes... I probably "don't know a shite about how to set up a guitar properly".

    People at Evertune must be as dumb as I am, if they have released a "new comb that is said to give back more sustain for those that lost some of it". I haven't seen that new comb. Could you extend on that?


    I have a very cheap guitar that came with an evertune (that's the reason I got it). It's a VGS Road Cruiser. I got it even cheaper because at the the shop they thought it was impossible to bend strings. It was there for some years until I rescued it.

    I'm very happy with it. I think the pickups are not very good (EMG HZ), so I'd like to change them when I decide which ones would be right.

    The only complain I have: I read somewhere that you loose sustain from fret 12 to the end of the neck. That's true with my guitar. I don't know if it's because of the pick ups, because of the guitar itself or because of the evertune.

    Anyway I'm planning to get a better guitar with evertune.

    I highly recommend trying the system. It doesn't only stays in tune: It corrects the little deviations that happen when you don't place the fingers perfectly and when you press chords too hard with the left hand. And, of course, guitar doesn't go sharp when you hit chords hard with the right hand. That all is so liberating when you are recording or playing live... Priceless.
