Just got a brand new Kemper Rack yesterday. I have been using a used Kemper Stage that I bought back in Jan 2022 and it's a whole new experience. The Stage came with a ton of profiles that were unusable for me (high gain and lots of distortion) so I deleted all the rigs and loaded a few profiles that fit my music better, The new Rack unit came with only factory content. I was surprised at the quality of the factory loaded rigs, much better than I was expecting. I will be busy for weeks going through all of them.
I did not order a remote for the Rack because it sits right next to my desk and figured I can live without it. I'm guessing there's nothing I can do with a remote that can't be done from the Rack unit itself. (?) I hope it's not needed because I'm short on floor space around my desk, I didn't even hook up a volume pedal for the Rack.
I'll probably have to ask a few questions because of the differences between the Rack and the Stage but hopefully not. First thing I am wondering is what the heck is the Quick button for? The stage doesn't have one (as far as I know). I had to read the manual before I could even turn the Rack unit on, I was looking for a simple power button and never would have thought that power on/off was done with the chicken head knob. At any rate I am very happy with Kemper and am sure I will be busy for quite a while.
