Thanks for fixing this!
is Kemper going to fix this? really annoying!
I updated to 220.127.116.1113 yesterday but noticed that filtering on Favorites is now buggy.
I start my Kemper and Favorites is already selected as the filter option. This used to do what you expect it to, now the KPA shows me all rigs, even though the filter clearly shows Favorites.
To make it work, every time I startup, I have to unselect the filter and reselect it.
I can't see any left / right repeats with any of the delay modules, despite clearly hearing some bouncing from one speaker to the other.
I am still puzzled too on what the 2 lights are for?
In the end I got to what I wanted.
It was as easy as starting to use the monitor out.
- TRS to TRS monitor output and direct output (with stereo option on to re assign direct as a second monitor); this goes into the audio interface. Aux -> monitor 0.0
- XLR to XLR master output to the monitor speakers. Aux -> master 7.0 or as loud as you want
- TRS to TRS from the audio interface output into the KPA return and alternate input
It’s totally fine now. Can record only guitar while playing the backing track on the same speakers.
You might ask why I use master for the speakers and monitor out for recording.... that’s cause currently I don’t have a TRS to XLR balanced cable. I will rectify that and flip the outputs.
I'm a Bit lost
What do u mean it's going back to the interface ??
The Kemper is playing the computer audio to the main out as well as the monitors. So if I record, main out will be (guitar -> KPA) + computer sound.
I obv want to hear the computer through the monitors but record only the guitar.
So.... epic failure so far.
cheekyboy999 yes I know the 2i2 isn't stereo as I mentioned above so my bubble was burst otherwise.
It sounds good, records well.... only problem is if I play a backing track and record whilst playing along the recording track is going back to the audio interface again.
Can this be setup in the KPA? e.g. only have the input from jack routed to the master out jacks?
If this can't be done, given I do want stereo playing, I see no other option but upgrading to another interface. Probably 6i6, SPDIF in and XLR/XLR to the monitors.
Unfortunately I have a gen 1 or 2... not sure how I can tell but definitely not a generation 3.
My version doesn’t have any software.
I would like stereo sound without having to go through my DAW.
What’s the benefit of monitors through the audio interface anyway?
1) I feel sound quality is best direct from Kemper
2) specific to my audio interface: a) it won’t do stereo monitoring b) if the computer is off the interface is not powered
Yes you can.
Thank you for confirming.
Sorry but I'm a newbie, would this sound sensible to you or is there a better way?
- Kemper Master Out to Monitors (2 XLR/XLR cables)
- Kemper Master Out to 2i2 (2 TRS/TRS cables)... bypasses the preamp on the 2i2 would otherwise make the KPA clip
- 2i2 outputs to KPA return and alternate input (2 TRS/TRS cables) so I can hear the backing tracks on the monitors too
I’m asking cause my audio interface (Focusrite Scarlett 2i2) doesn’t seem to support panning, so if I go from KPA to 2i2 with 2 TRS cables I get mono audio from monitors connected to the 2i2.
I’d really love to hear the stereo effects directly from the Kemper into the monitors and still be able to send the signal to the audio interface for recording without having to plug and unplug cables.
Mess with your English? I thought you were a native.
Thank you so much for taking the time to explain so eloquently.
I will buy the cables now and try it out. I will need very short cables, eg 0.5M for a desk setup. If there’s any brand you recommend pls let me know.
Any advantages on upgrading my audio device and use SPDIF?
That's not the proper way to connect the Kemper to your audio interface. The XLR input of your Scarlett has a mic preamp that you are not going to bypass using an XLR plug. You need a TRS/TRS cable (or TS/TS will work just fine) for mono sounds. For stereo you need two cables.
Connect Kemper L output to channel 1 of your interface (switch set to LINE)
Connect Kemper R output to channel 2 of your interface (switch set to LINE)
In the Scarlett mixer, link together channel 1-2 to get a single stereo channel/fader, and set them to inputs Anlg In 1 and Anlg In 2
Then you need 2 cables TRS/XLR male plug:
Connect output L of your interface to your left speaker
Connect output R of your interface to your right speaker
Thanks for the answer!
why 2 TRS from KPA to Scarlett input of simply 2 TS to get Stereo? any quality degradation from XLR... sorry for the newbie question but XLR cables always seem more "professional" than TS/TRS
Could I ask a couple more questions please:
1) on the Scarlett, LINE or INST?
2) the Scarlett is clipping a lot. What should I set the GAIN on the Scarlett at one the Kemper output db level at ideally?
