    We are currently at OS 10.2.1 release. If you came from OS 7.1, an interim step was required installing OS 7.3.2. first.

    You find this hint in all related upgrade notes and the OS 7.3.2 upgrade package including instructions at the KEMPER download page at "Older Software Versions".

    It sounds as if you tried to skip this step.

    Please open a support ticket.

    In that case activating the effect via pedal movement is perhaps not the right approach.

    I'm using Bypass @ Stop, which has no grace area at all, and I have no such issues.

    Have you checked, if perhaps the pedal is mechanically too loose, or considered a pedal with a toe switch?

    No, we hesitate to flood the product with options for corner cases. The Bypass @... functions work in the vast majority of cases. And in this specific case we don't know yet, what the root cause is. Perhaps there is an issue with that pedal.

    We have just elevated OS 10.2.1 and Rig Manager 3.4.51 to release level!

    Rig Manager 3.4.51 for Windows(R)/macOS(R) and Rig Manager 1.5.1 for iOS(R) required!

    Rig Manager 3.4.51 requires at least Windows(R) 10 or macOS(R) 10.14.

    Ok, please check the value of the Wah Pedal controller on page Pedal Links.

    Perhaps it's a mechanical issue: When you initiate a Rig change the pedal slightly moves away from toe position.

    And I suggest to calibrate anyhow. Perhaps the range is not maxed out and the grace area at the toe position too small.

    There are a whole lot of global settings in System Settings and Output Section beyond pedal assignments, which could have sound or user interface implications e.g. Performance Load, Kemper Kone, Rig Autoload, Reference Pitch, Constant Latency, Aux In Mixes, Input Source, Monitor Stereo,... I can imagine scenarios, where users just import Performances into other persons' PROFILERs and are then struggling because the units behave differently than what they are used to. And the reason is any option or preference or selection, which they are not even aware of. I think, that is a rat hole! Please go through the list of global settings and imagine, what could happen.

    If you want to be sure, the unit behaves exactly as you would expect, install the same OS which you use at home and restore your entire backup. That takes a few minutes but always leads to predictable results. Otherwise you could be forced to trouble shoot five minutes before your concert.

    Yes, you could have a Wah Pedal that also does Volume and Pitch Pedal or a Morph Pedal that also does Wah and Pitch Pedal.

    You cannot combine Morphing and Volume Pedal, since Morphing is so to say "always active". But there are workarounds which are explained in the Main Manual.

    If you use Pedal Mode "Bypass @ Toe" in all wah effects in all Rigs, that should work.

    Have you pressed "Calibrate" and performed a complete sweep of your expression pedal?

    Does the bar representing the Wah Pedal on page Pedal Links reach the maximum corresponding value 127?

    Or if you hear the wah effect while your pedal rests in toe position, is the value at 127?

    Main Manual page 115/116 explains, how the PROFILER wattage protection works and who the KEMPER Power Kabinet should be used.

    The PROFILER and 200 watts KEMPER Power Kabinet are a perfect match in terms of signal level and headroom, and the PROFILER’s soft-clipping algorithm is perfectly aligned with the Kabinet’s power amp. The Wattage Meter on the Kemper Kone page is perfectly calibrated to ensure the true values are always displayed. Furthermore, a wattage protection algorithm will automatically turn down Monitor Volume when 200 watts are exceeded, to protect the KEMPER Kone chassis from damage. For the perfect match, and to fully benefit from these amenities when playing loud, it’s best to leave the volume knob of your KEMPER Power Kabinet at maximum position and use the PROFILER’s Monitor Output Volume to control the levels instead. If you need to get even louder, you can still increase Power Amp Boost.

    If you do not set the Kabinet’s volume knob to maximum, the soft-clipping and the protection circuit might chime in too early, and the Wattage Meter will show exaggerated values.

    For relaxed “playing at home” levels however, it is fine to use the Power Kabinet’s volume to your liking. Just be sure to set the Monitor Output Volume of your PROFILER to a lower level, so that the Wattage Meter doesn’t exceed 50 or 100 watts and to prevent the protection circuit from kicking in.

    If you lower the volume pot at the KEMPER Power Kabinet and then send a loud Aux In signal, the wattae protectionn might intervene and lower Monitor Output Volume.

    The Aux In signal is directly fed into the PROFILER outputs and isn't affected by any guitar effects and amp simulations.

    What you describe is indicating, that you are have set up the sockets for ALTERNATIVE IN and/or RETURN for other purposes:

    Check which Input Source is selected in the Input Section. While you are using Aux In, you cannot use ALTERNATIVE IN or RETURN as Input Source, but need to use Front INPUT instead, which si the default.

    Make sure the Rig you use includes no effect loop. The effect loops use RETURN and ALTERNATIVE IN as their return inputs. And if you for example place a Loop Stereo in module X, the signal fed into RETURN and ALTERNATIVE IN runs through modules MOD, DLY and REV. As the text quote explains. avoid effect loops while using Aux In.

    Die Kommentare oben betreffen nicht den MAIN OUT, sondern ausschließlich den MONITOR OUT bzw. den SPEAKER OPUT der eingebauten Endstufe von PowerHead und PowerRack. Es gibt keine Software-Situation, wo der MAIN OUT von alleine leiser werden könnte. Wenn bei Dir das Signal schwächer wird, mußt Du das mal systematisch einkreisen:

    Kommt vielleicht am Input schon weniger Signal an? INPUT LED? Kabel, Gitarre, bei Head/Rack mal anderen Eingang testen.

    Betrifft das Problem alle Ausgänge? Was ist z. B. mit dem rechten MAIN OUT? Was ist mit dem HEADPHONE OUT?

    Ist anderes Equipment eingeschleift? Was ist denn, wenn man das wegläßt?

    Ist ein Expression Pedal angeschlossen, welches die Lautstärke kontrolliert? Was passiert, wenn man das mit seinem Kabel vom PROFILER trennt?

    Auf welchem dB-Wert steht denn Main Output Volume? Und wenn sich der Pegel verändert, verändert sich dieser Wert auch?

    You are free to make the left column wider. However I'm not sure, that is the issue you describe. I also don't understand where you see the folder name in the upper right. Pehaps you can demonstrate the issue with a picture
