Some bad profiles can go extremely fizzy when you raise the gain.
Sadly, IMO, the Kemper is quite poor in the overdrive section.
Bon courage à vous
Salut Gwenou, tu peux via le browse mais un par un..
Un peu laborieux si tu as un gros tri à faire.
Totalement d'accord sur l'EQ paramétrique sur l'output.
Je n'espère plus rien sur les dates de release quand on voit le temps que ça a prit pour le 5.x malgré leurs annonces au NAMM..
Par contre ça ne me dérange pas, on a déjà pas mal de contenu pour bien s'amuser en attendant, je trouve juste dommage qu'en contre partie, ils ne communiquent pas plus sur le contenu à venir ou sur l'avancement au moins..
It's not a placebo effect, imo. Gain staging is very important to get the most out of your gear. Something that's set too high or too low will have a cascading impact on your tone.
I'd suggest you hook up a pair of headphones to your Kemper and then listen to the tone. Then play through your monitors with the gain set at neutral (12 o'clock). If there's too much distortion, lower the volume of the output you're using. Try and get your tone to sound through your monitors like it sounds through your headphones (which I hope are relatively neutral and sound good to you).
Well, I never play thru headphones because I don't like it, but I think my headphones are ok for this test (AKG 240), I'll give a try, thanks!
Is there a difference in...
- Loudness apart from attack
- Drive/overdrive (I know you're talking low gain :-))
Especially in the attack yes. Nope about the 2 others.
Thanks for your replies guys. I've just took time to A/B again my monitorings with low gain and gain at 12 o'clock, it really seems things are better (i'd say, "normal") when it's set at 12 o'clock.
Dynamics is probably not the good word, it's hard to explain.
I'd say I feel the sound coming out of the Kemper "stronger", more reactive to my guitar pickups.
Since several months now, I can't dial a correct tone on my Kemper. I also bought a Line 6 Helix and had the same problem. Especially on clean and low gain profiles.
The main problem for me was the dynamics, I always had to use the compressor (at 4.5 / 100%) and it wasn't often satisfying.. I always need to raise the volume to get ok dynamics, but the volume is quite high. Too much for a house.
I can't understand because when I bought my Presonus Eris 8 especially for my Kemper 3 years ago, the sound was amazing without over compressing or using high volume..
I tried different cables, tried to plug my Kemper directly into my monitoring (usually it's plugged in a Behringer Mixer to allow me to mix my computer level, the kemper, and the MP3 player), tried to init globals on the kemper, nothing changed and today I just saw that my monitorings gain level was at 8 o'clock (approx. 1/10). In the Eris' manual, they say neutral gain level is at 12 o'clock (5/10).
I've reset it like that, tried to A/B 12 o'clock and 8 o'clock (without forgetting to match the Kemper Level),
It seems to me there's better dynamics, but I wonder if it's not placebo effect.
deactivating the Cabinet activates the CabDriver algorithm,
that's why Amplifier with deactivated Cabinet + external IR is different from Amplifier with activated Cabinet (using the converted IR)
OK, now I understand why using IR's on cab section and same IR's loaded in the DAW will give differents results.
So, converting the IR to a Kemper cab isn't accurate due to the CabDriver? Sounds like there needs to be a cabdriver on/off option in the cab module.
So, definetly +1
Cab section parameters maybe?
Thanks for your work! I'd love to see a video that explain the Bias parameters..
Is it planned?
But I can't keep my od stomps between Kemper Wah/Comp and the amp profile like that :-/
I'd need some tips about using external effects with the Kemper.
I'm using some OD pedals into the fx loop to get a chain like like this :
Slot A : Wah
Slot B : Comp
Slot C : Fx Loop with OD stomps
But I also have a EHX Freeze and a Jamman that I would like to run after the amp.
As I'm running stereo from XLR outputs, how can I plug the EHX & the Jamman to make them run after the amp?
Thanks guys !
+1 about bad implantation.
I have same problem but on my unit, you too guys?
