I don’t really understand these posts. It kind of comes off as though you’ve missed the point of the unit and that you’re not using the technology to it’s intended purpose. The shortcomings you’ve outlined are more to do with your approach than the Kemper.
Most of what you’ve said actually points to the fact that you haven’t liked the profiles you’ve been trying. If you had real life amp sounds that you liked the sound of, then why not profile these? You could capture these at any volume and EQ setting which would have allowed you to get the sweet spot you needed.
The other point about the Kemper being hard to use in a recording situation with the band present etc. just comes down to poor planning. If you haven’t found a sound you like, doing it in an attended session is barely going to help.
Maybe just read my post again before venting…
The main point of my post was to say goodbye to a community that I really appreciated. And you’re free to believe that I just missed the point, I was told that for over a year and I said it myself to plenty people who criticized the Kemper. In the end, I picked what worked better for me, that doesn’t mean I’m telling you that you’re wrong liking your device.
Also, almost all of your assumptions about me and my approach are just plain wrong. Neither did I not find Kemper sounds I liked in certain contexts nor is it that simple to properly profile someone else’s amp at every volume. My new amp comes with an IR that was recorded with a mic that alone costs 1.500 USD. Just because you say something is simple that doesn’t make it true…
In the end, I believe that my new setup is more practical and sounds better than what I could achieve with the Kemper and that’s really all I care about.
Since I didn’t intend this to be a controversial discussion I’m logging out now but wish all of you the best. Keep rocking.
