    I have been asked to join a CCR tribute band. It would be nice to get that particular and unique sound of John Fogerty. What I have figured out is that he used a Kustom K 200 B 4 Kustom amp for many of their old CCR hit records. We're talking about late sixties here...

    I allready own a black Les Paul Custom :) but a original amp profile or a very close matching amp would convince even more. Anyone for suggestions, advice or nailing down that sound ?

    Did you ever find any profiles? After watching the CCR doc on Netflix, I'm looking too! Wicked tone... esp with the short scale Ric and the Kustom Solid State!

    Looking for profile suggestions to get as close to this honk as possible. Check out the intro playing, but even more around 5:30 and 10:30. Especially the way the low open E sounds and interacts with the other low strings. Like a Beatles record! I broke out my Casino with Wolftone P90s and checked out a lot of Fender Deluxe profiles I have ...and on Rig exchange. Still can't find this exact vibe. There is someting magical the way that low E sounds. I'll go for any Profile that can get me there! He's going straight into a 66 Deluxe. Thanks!

    Hi guys,

    Sorry if this has been covered, but is Rig Manager M1 Native yet? About to buy a new Mac and going through a checklist of important software etc.

    Did a quick google and forum search already w/o finding the answer. Trying to not run Rosseta if possible.


    Thanks for the feedback guys! Very helpful. I know some people's clean is another's edge of breakup so it's hard to define. I have used a couple SVT profiles a couple times. Does anyone know how the KPA "assigns or detects" what it thinks/sees the amount is at the profiling stage... so it can assign a graphic (bars) to it? Every bit of insight to this helps. Thanks.

    What do you guys consider to be "clean" profiles? It seems to me only profiles that are on the lowest (1) gain setting seem to be clean... and edge of breakup is 2 0r maybe 3. Is that how it works for you? Also, why might some profiles that show gain at 3... sound cleaner than some at 2? Not sure how that work. Maybe when using pedals when profiling? Thanks

    Just got my Gigrig G3 pedal switcher. Wanted to ask how/if people are using it with the KPA to get the most out of the features? It has a couple remote switches and midi too.

    One thing I am still working on is getting rid of my Midi Commander (if I can make it work from the G3) that currently is programmed only for toggling the 8 fx & stomp slots while tracking in my studio. I programmed one button on the G3 to send CC17 as a test for slot #1... but it did not work yet. Midi Commander has the toggle mode that sends 0 the first click.. and then 127 so they go on & off.


    Looks great. $429? Is that the one?

    FYI ...I bought the Melo Audio for now ($139 on Amazon) and it works great for the 8 toggles on/off. Easy to program 2 of the custom modes.

    Just start up in CUSTOM mode... and change each button listed to CC and set the number to whats listed in the KPA manual.

    The up/down buttons can't be program at this time unfortunately but the comapny said they are working on it for an update.

    I would like that feature for browser mode too, but don't really need it since I have RM open all the time.

    Using any third party controller will require MIDI programming to do what you want. I suggest looking at the Profiler MIDI documentation, and the owners manual for the Melo, to determine if it can do what you need, or not.

    Thanks! I did read those already . Not perfectly clear to me it will actually work "good"... but I guess I'll just have to order it to see since no one has answered for that.

    I've been doing midi since 1990 with an ADA midi pedal and my rack fx. And I have a studio since '92.

    Thanks. Looks a little overkill for me though. Just want to toggle the fx slots. Anyone ever use the Melo Audio Midi Commander?

    Is it possible to set up the Melo Audio Commander to globally toggle on/off the 8 fx slots (no matter what profile is loaded)? Also would be magic to step thru profiles in Rig Manager ....or does that work only what's loaded on the actual KPA? I work in my studio only so don't need it for Performances etc.
