    This is excellent will try the profile later!

    After watching Petes Vid tho it sent me into a whirlwind of catching any type of Modded Tones i could find for the Kemper.


    Craig Sorrienti Stuff is pretty magical, i really dig the Brit 800 Jose Stuff. But learned in the video Jose didnt prefer the 800 circuts. Ive combed all of the RE for those tones and didnt find any super impressive either.

    Then the Rabbit hole brought me to Mark Cameron Tones....oh boy!! Suckerfree,Cililabs Ect.


    Careful how deep we go searching boys!

    ^^^Thats how i have always done this....should be a solid solution. Once unzipped.

    I categorize my profiles under the Local library either by AMP Manufacture or the Commercial Profilers Name.


    IE:


    Local Library

    > EVH 5150
    > Live Ready Sound

    > Modded Jose
    > Tone Junkie

    With the new updates have yall tried this yet? I didn't see any discussion currently on it...

    I assume at least 50/50 of us are using FR vs Real Cabs. (I personally Run Laney FR112)

    Ive found it pretty satisfying depending on the rig and the Direction nob. I understand this is not the "Correct" way to set it, but after watching Big Hairy run through his demo i though oh snap i might try this.


    In case you didnt know...Be connected to cab though Monitor out-- OUTPUT> *Uncheck Cab Monitor - *Check Kone > Soft Nob for Speaker selection.


    Cheers!

    If your looking for Full out Metal like 5150s style from MBritt id say in my opinion the Heavy pack is about as Gained out as he gets with profiles.

    You might want to Look at the ADA Pack from Britt, for a bit more Metal and Rock sounds as thats a very 1980s piece of equipment and he covered the ranges in that pack quite well.


    That modern pack isnt very "modern metal" which is what i think your imagining? ....youll be looking at more classic rock with that pack and it just touches into a little more harder rock with 1 or 2 amps with in those profiles.


    Otherwise id encourage you to check out AMP Factory Profiles, I would say they are done with the same type of quality and attention to detail when making their profiles like Mr Britt.
    The Metal Producers Pack. Youll find goodies from Ubershal, 5150III, 6505, JSX, Krank, Fortin Marshal Modd, Dual Rec.

    Yeah I pretty much would agree 100% with tweaking. They still aren't immediately satisfying, but now can be pretty fun.


    I dropped in the high and low cut for eq, post amp and cab.
    Took out the reverb depending on patch

    Boosted the clarity nob 1/3 to 2/3s depending -definitions were already up there

    Then boosted no more then 1-1.5 of treb and half that amount in presence. Occasionally same thing in mids to liven up things.

    Well my first thoughts on the Super Kraken were not completely impressive. Picked them up just this afternoon and was going through a ton of AMP factory profiles previewing until I ended up finally at my super krakens. Compared to the demo Rabea did I felt like it was missing some life.

    Could be my ears were tired...by that time. but seemed like the tones had that blanket effect...

    If I know Rabea, im sure he put some sort of high cuts and low cuts for the video so I will try them again tonight with those changes and see what happenes.


    Will report back haha

    Glad to hear positive thoughts on this I was thinking about snagging the Super Kracken as well, seems to be the only thing that is unique out of the packs. With Rabea doing the profiling I can probably ensure the accuracy as he plays that amp alot exclusively.

    All depends on you purposes, I find for my self, ive ran through nearly 30k different profiles so far from a lot of makers.

    And everyone has a mix bag, depending on if your going to be doing live playing, or recording...its great because there is something for everyone.


    Im no expert and have only been dealing with kemper for nearly 5 months lol so take this for whatever its worth. but I feel like I have a decent ear.

    I find the most success differentiating based on your purpose...recording / live. Now there are similarities between the 2 - you probably are going to want to drop high and low cuts into the profiles regardless so your not hammering frequencies into 20hz and 30K all the time.

    Then youll most likely need to tweak Definition and Clarity to taste before Squashing it with more eq would be my recommendation.



    When recording I like to combine 2 different profiles so you get a blend of different mics or cabs...that's where youll have some fun with the sounds coming alive... like anything isolated guitars typically sound like shit, once combined or mixed into a mix then you get the goodies pop out.


    For live use your going to utilize eq a bit more since your needing to shape things as if you were recording into a desk technically...this can be the more annoying because it all depends on the dynamic of your live mix.
    But of course Find a profile that jives with you > Eq the crap you don't want to hear=- always try to cut in eq vs boosting things. And keep it as simple as possible and you might find your spot where it cuts.


    If your not into the crazy high gain stuff and want more rock I would steer you towards The Amp Factory or Top Jimi.

    Ive been impressed lately with what the amp factory offers in variety and they are really keen on making sure the Definition nob actually has a function and headroom to tweak to your taste.


    cheers

    Thank you guys. I managed a bit of brief reading on my lunch and apparently you should hit that store button often. Well I’ve never seen the store button so it was probably that :).


    Might have my own pop at profiling soon too!

    Yeah get used to smashing that Store butting 3 times quick when making changes, Especially before you go to another patch...everything resets.


    Did you have your stage hooked up to a pc and rig manager open? What you experience was probably some sort of crash.

    I notice most frequently if I get a crash its when its in performance mode connected to my mac book running Rig Manager...

    Forgive my ignorance but if your using a footswitch you could assign it to a stomp setting?
    Ive got the Stage so I just add it to one of the 4 FX buttons...you must be using something separate I assume? or all your other blocks are taken?

    The Demo Profile Delivered for sure...very similar to the actual plugin from Neural.
    Hit that Buy button on the Single Channel one...will provide details soon of my full thoughts.


    Sorry this didnt meant to end up like a commercial.

    Sup!

    So if yall follow Neural DSP, im assuming a lot of us tone nerds do. They just dropped the Omega Amp Works Plugin.

    I have only known about them from a quick NAMM 2020 Vid of the owner showing off their stuff. I recall i think he came from Peavy...or something?


    Anyways I watched the Demo Rabea did and its not very often I hear one chord ring out and immediately turn my attention, But this one certainly did.


    I Own the Ola Englund Satan (Natas) Plugin and it deff delivers some goodies.


    Well being the Kemper nerd I am, I went to the rig exchange in search of anything I can snag for Freeezy, with no avail.
    Ended up doing a Google Search and Alpha actually has a website with Kemper profiles.


    So my question is has anyone had any experience with them? They provided one free sample and I have yet to preview it but im at the point where I would end up buying it just from what ive heard on the plugin....

    Would be interested in all of your thoughts?
