I've been trying to setup my Kemper and OBS studio for live streaming. I want the viewers to be able to watch live video from my camera, my guitar sound and the backing track in the background. Would like to use the Facebook live option!
The Kemper is connected using spdif by the way.
I've setup the video which is ok. The problems I have are.
1)the media file (in my case an mp3) doesn't play. I've tried various mp3s but they only play sometimes
2) when the media file decides to perform , the viewers hear 2 guitar tracks instead of one.
Any ideas about the above? Thanks in advance.
Hope they revamp the MOD/Pitch effects!
Hope they makeover the modulations effects (chorus, micropitch, pitch shifting etc) in this update. Much needed
I created a performance with 5 rigs. Everything is working great except 1 thing:
When I am at the first rig, the LEDS at the tuner of the kemper turn off for some reason.
Everything is working great, it's just the behavior of the LEDS that drives me nuts
Im going for a rehearsal with my powered kemper. I have created a performance with 5 different rigs and they are all the same volume. What I wonder is the volume when i connect my kemper to a cab. How should I set the master volume in the output section so it will work as a "global" volume? (like raising the volume of an amp). It will be my first time hooking up to a cab.
When I bought my Kemper, I bought a pair of studio monitors. Here they are http://www.prodipe.co.uk/studio-monitors/2113-pro-8-v3.html
I had no idea about monitors (i still don't have) and im extremely happy with my purchase. How are these monitors on paper based on their specifications? Also, if i get a pair of yamaha hs8 or genelecs, will i hear a difference for the better? The monitors are used for the kemper mostly and light recording, not so much for mixing/mastering!
(how can i make my link to show like others?)
A multi fx block will be life saving! Oh! And a richer chorus with more options!I would also recommend the drives to be baked in to the amp block
In the new release, there is a bug changing parameters with the mouse wheel. There are big "steps" when changing values
- PoE onboard
- Second Morph + separate morph for gain + separate morph for volume
- Automatic assigning of a fixed effect to an effect button no matter where it is in the effect slots (eg right effect button always for pitch, left effect button always for delay, …). Best would be a kind of „Live Mode“ where we are able to select general effect presets that will be added to a profile in the „Live Mode“ (kind of locking feature but with the opportunity to program and save those pedal board presets and apply them as wanted).
- The possibility to plug in my guitar into the remote (not a big fan of wireless systems but I love to have only one cable on stage). Anyway I would not mind a wireless Receiver being built in the Kemper.
- Bar-based Looper with longer recording periods and the ability to safe samples (for recording purposes of ideas that come up with certain profiles).
- Better effect-types and -settings regarding Flanger, Chorus, Tremolo and Phaser. Also consider more trigger options like pitch based altering and activations of effects (LFO, …).
- Ethercon right at the KPA
- Multi-Gain-Profiling (eg. having the possibility to „store“ different gain stages of the amp to reflect a more natural sound experience when altering the profile)
- A kind of adaption of my pickups to better fit the pickups used by the profilers. Oftentimes the sound is so different from any sound sample.
About the 9. . That's the idea! Every profile will sound different with different pickups etc The kemper responds like a regular amp.
is possible yet. Look at Main Manual page 289:
"Assigning a Second Effect Module
To add a second assignment to the same Effect Button, just repeat the process with another effect module. You will notice the right LEDs by the Effect Button indicate both the effect category and on/off state of your second assignment. Now, you can activate or bypass both effects by stepping on the button on your PROFILER Remote."
This is about switching on or off , two effects at the same time from the remote only
After almost 2 years of having my Kemper and be extremely happy with it, here are the things I would like to see in future updates :
1)Tuner at the rig manager
2)More options on the micropitch effect
3)"stronger" chorus effect. You have to put 2 choruses for a rich sound
4)bbe sonic maximizer-like efffect
5)a richer pitch block
6)ability to implement a drive/boost effect on the amp block so we can have an effect block free
7)save effect presets from the rig manager
8)IF possible, having 2 effects on the same block at the same time
I use Cubase so I'm not familiar with where the buttons and knobs are on Reaper, but all DAWs have the same basic functionality. With that said, one thing you'll want to consider is the difference in your DAW between "sends" and "inserts."
An insert can be thought of like a traditional stomp box in front of an amplifier. Your guitar cord goes from guitar into the stomp box, then out of the stomp box into the amp. Thus, it is "inserted" into the guitar signal path.
A send is more like parallel processing. Imagine if your guitar cord went from your guitar and then was split with a Y adapter. One side went into channel one of your amp, and the other side went into channel two. If channel one is your actual guitar tone and channel two was your effect, you could turn the volume of your effect up and down without affecting what's going on with the unaffected tone in channel one. You'd just be mixing in how much of the effect you wanted, to blend it with the unaffected tone.
Back in the DAW, inserts are often used for something like compression, where you don't want to preserve the tone that went into the insert, all you care about is the end result that happens after the effect. On the other hand, reverb is commonly used on a send bus. For instance, you have a singer's vocal track, and then you "mix in" the amount of reverb that you want.
Also, while an insert affects one and only one track, a send bus can be shared by multiple tracks. Using our vocal example, you could have four singers on four tracks. They might be EQ'd differently, but they could all mix in some reverb from the single reverb send. And each singer could mix in different amounts of 'verb if you like.
Now, back to the Kemper. To turn off effects, just press the buttons to turn off stomp boxes, reverb and delay. Now you're tracking just your unaffected guitar tone. Let's say you record it on track one.
In your DAW, you'll want to create a send bus since they're time based effects. (There are ways to do this as an insert but I'm showing the most common use case). Once you have the send bus created, then you select an Eventide effect for that bus. Now go to your guitar track, enable that send, and turn up the volume of the send bus until it's the level you like, thus "mixing in" the effect.
If you want to use more than one Eventide plugin at the same time, simply create additional send busses, e.g. if you want a chorus, a flanger, a delay and a reverb, create four send busses and select each effect into a different bus. Now, on track one where your guitar part is, enable all four sends and mix each one to taste.
As I mentioned, since I don't use Reaper I can't tell you the specifics of how to do this in that environment but it absolutely has these capabilities. Depending on your preferred method of learning, you can either RTFM or search YouTube for "create send bus in Reaper." It's not difficult to do, it's just a matter of getting familiar with it.
Hope this helps!
Thank you VERY much!
I'm not totally sure I understand your question, but...
On the tracks in Reaper, you have two square buttons marked M and S. The M --- mutes the track.
You can create a separate track just for effects in Reaper (any DAW) and send it to the dry guitar track when using effects plugins.
To separate your guitar Stack and Effects on Kemper, you will have to set up the Kemper Output menu for Stack on one output (to your Interface input) and DLY+Verb on the other output.
So the effects from DAW must be on a separate track huh? I'll give it a try thanks!
I have some sweet eventide plugins that I would like to play around with. The effects I wanna try are time-based so I need to bypass the "effects" section of my kemper
1)how can I add them without hearing 2 signals?
2)I am using Reaper and I am hooked up using SPDIF!
Agreed. I don’t have Paul Gilbert size paws, and the HM Strat’s 25.1” scale, combined with the flat, thin (but rock solid) neck, as well as full access to 24 jumbo frets, makes this a joy and inspiration to play.
I have been considering the Schaller Floyd (Lockmeister) as well.
Question on the locking nut. Not sure if this is available from Schaller, but wouldn’t we need an R10 locking nut, due to the radius? The R10 is 15” radius, which is closest to the neck’s 17”. I will have to measure the width of existing nut/shelf.
No, the nut is already a BR3 (korean equivalent of the R3). Get the r3 and you will be ok. Buy and a couple of nut shims in case you need to raise the nut a bit because the R3 is slightly shorter
Awesome, CrazyShred. These are amazing guitars, with the most comfortable, thin, flat and fast necks I have ever played. I absolutely love the 25.1" scale length with 24 frets. I had my Flash Yellow HM Strat PLEK'd by Sweetwater. Plays like a dream.
I guess I also will eventually replace the stock FR Special with an Original Floyd Rose, whenever these can be found in the wild, again.
By the way, I loved it so much, I ran to Guitar Center and picked up a second HM Strat. Grabbed the Ice Blue with Rosewood.
Now, I just have to sell some of my other guitars.
Indeed it has the best neck I've ever played on a guitar. The combination of scale,neck,pickups, fret access because of the heel and LOOKS, rocks hard. What do you think of the pickups? If you can't find an official floyd rose, buy the schaller lockmeister. Same thing as the OFR but with schaller's stamp on it (schaller makes the OFR). Be sure to order it with R3 nut and 32mm block
2020 Fender HM Strat. Effortless playability and VERY light. Will replace the floyd special with a german one soon
