The unpowered Kemper is basically a pre-amp. It has not means to drive a cabinet on its own. You need a power amp to go between the Kemper and the cabinet.
Try connecting headphones directly to the Kemper and see if you feel the same latency. If not then it could be the audio interface ASIO driver latency added to the signal.
If you just got your Kemper yesterday how did you manage to find time to type this post? I had to be physically dragged away from mine to eat and sleep for about the first week
Glad you’re enjoying it. I really is a game changer. Everyday you just keep finding something new to get excited about.
Now stop reading this post and go play with your Kemper
Oh I was eating and heading to bed as I typed my post.
I am in love with the M.Britt /13 profile already. A little tweaking of the clarity and I was in heaven.
Thanks all for the welcomes folks.
Anyway back to the ould playing.
I hope there won't be a Kemper 2 for a long while. I just purchased mine.
Hi all, I am a long time lurker of these forums due to my interest in the Profiler so this is my first post. I found the forum to be an excellent source of information for any prospective owner and after reading the many threads and listening to the Profiler on sound-cloud and YouTube I decided to take the plunge and get one myself.
I received my Profiler yesterday and what can I say? I was not expecting it to be that good. I had a rough idea that it would be good but nothing really prepares you until you actually try it in the flesh. From the moment I plugged in my 335, the tone left me speechless. In my opinion the warmth and thickness of the tone has surpassed all software modelers that I have become accustomed to and I have tried them all. The only two that have come close, from my experience, have been Mercurial and S-Gear and while they are excellent plugins, they really are missing the organic sound and feel of the Profiler. I can't pinpoint it but it's definitely more organic. Maybe it's the code or maybe it's the audio interface, who knows. Up until getting the Profiler, I thought those software plugins were the best you could get and that any hardware modeller would be the same but more expensive. Not so with the Kemper. It's in a league all of it's own. I am delighted that my decision to make such a purchase was worth it and I hope to have many years of happy camper playing.
