  • Hello, I have come across a thread in which you talk about using a talk box with Kemper, even that you have created a profile to simply use the pedal. I am thinking of getting a talk box and I would like to know what is the correct way to use it since I hardly find information about it. I have a Kemper Stage and I don't use any cabinet or anything, it just goes directly to the PA and I listen to it through an in-ear system. I would like to know if it is possible to use it that way, what would be the correct way to use it and how I would have to connect it. Thank you very much in advance.

    • I use a Rocktron Banshee. My guitar is connected to the Banshee, and the Banshee is connected to the input of the Kemper. The tube is mounted on my microphone stand.

    • and then the sound of your guitar, with the effect of the takbox, sounds through the LR outputs of the kemper? without the need for a microphone to amplify it? I apologize for my insistence, given my ignorance on the matter and I thank you for your answers

    • The Talkbox sound comes out of a tube that is attached to the output of the Talkbox. You put the tube in your mouth, and use a vocal microphone to send the sound to the PA.

  • Thanks for the info. By the way, You nailed Surfalicious. Nice

    • You’re welcome. And, Thank You!!!

  • I am trying to update a Kemper Stage from 7.1.19 to the latest. I tried putting 7.3.2 on a usb stick and the Kemper recognizes that an OS is other but says that it failed and can not perform the update. Is their another step to get the unit past 7.1.19?

    • Good news:

      PROFILER Operating System 8.0.2 Release for all PROFILER models


      Rig Manager 3.0.140 required!

      *****PROFILER Stage users can immediately upgrade to this revision regardless of their current OS!*****

  • Hi Paul! what can I mention about commercial profiles?


    • Greetings!

      From what I have seen, the only place to discuss Commercial Profiles is in the “Third Party Rigs” forum. Whenever people mention them in another forum, the Moderators tend to move the entire thread to that forum. I’ve seen it happen with many threads that started out as “free rig” threads.

    • ok, thanks!

  • All this front of house ,blame the amp this bull

    the kemper output is ay too low

    a powered head has nothing to do with line out

    I run a state of the art recording studio, and i love my kemper, but it has output issues.

    With master volume all the way up to unity

    I'm printing audio 15 db down

    practically unusable

    • The Master Volume knob range is setting is dependant on a couple of settings in the Output Menu.

      In the Output Menu, look at the Volume Setting for the Main Outputs. One way to make it match the Master Volume is to turn Master up all the way, and then turn Main Outputs up all the way.

      Also, look to see if the "Main Out -12 dB" box is checkmarked.

  • Hello Paul, Question, Stage user with a "stomps section is disabled" msg. How do I clear this? and enable the stomps section? Thanks in advance.

    • Hello,

      I don’t have a Stage, so, here is a guess: Try holding down the Lock button, and and clicking each stomp button, then release the Lock button. If that doesn’t work, ask Support and on the Forum.

  • hi paul,i've read your useful replies in "kabinet qa" forum,i still got a question about the volume when you use kabinet -- can this thing running in very low volume condition and without losing character and the feel like studio moniters did

    • I think it responds just as well as any other single 12 inch sealed back guitar cabinet does at lower volumes. If you primarily use sounds that are associated with open back cabinets, you may prefer putting a Kone into an open back cabinet.

    • thanks! so in a low volume level like 70db to 80db,kabinet or studio moniter(genelec or something ) sounds more good ? i know it make a cabinet wronged,but i also noticed kabinet have full range mode which in my mind it's just like a big unit studio moniter which doesn't effected by volume level too much,so i can use Imprint and crank it over 80db,and when it goes to late night i can switch it to full range mode and enjoy the whisper of it .

      i've make some research about volumne level for home use,does it(i mean minimum volume level when sounds pretty good) actully effected by the power amp's watt range,cause kemper(as a preamp) and adjust volume to any level.

      Looking forward to your reply


    • Yes, you can use it that way. Kabinet sounds very good in full range mode, too.

  • Hi Paul,

    I have a Kemper Stage. I recently bought an OX BOX. I have connected the two but I fear I've missed a simple trick. or maybe a complicated one.

    can you walk me through how to connect them for recording to my DAW?

    Many Thanks,


    • I don't have an OX BOX, but, you don't need it to record your Kemper to your DAW. Your Kemper can be connected directly to the input of whatever Audio Interface you are using with your DAW.

    • The OX BOX is designed to be used with the Speaker Level Output from a conventional Tube Amplifier. The Main and Monitor Outputs of the Stage are Line Level Outputs. I don't see a Line Level Input on the back of the OX BOX.

  • Hi paults, please help me.

    Hi, we’ve got Kemper power rack with it’s remote and expression pedal. Also a Behringer x32 rack and a Comp with Pro Tools. We want to automate our Kemper with MIDI.

    And we’d like to know if it is possible to write(record) live actions of remote controller on the MIDI track in Pro Tools?

    So that after we can playback it and all buttons rig changes will automatically work on Kemper.

    If it is possible, please let us know how we should do that.



    • Hello,

      My guess is that you can record to a MIDI track if you enable "UI to MIDI" in the System Menu. After the track is created, you will likely have to manually insert the appropriate MIDI PC at the count-in of each song, so the Kemper will begin with the proper Rig/Performance Slot.

      Kemper Support may have some suggestions, and there may be someone on the Forum may who has already done this.

  • hi was wondering how to connect my KPA up to my UA apollo new to all this.

    • Hello! I suggest posting your question in the User Forum. I don’t use an Apollo interface, but, there will be people there who can give you advice from their experience.

  • hi to you paults from Belgium i see your reply's in many of the forum sections

    and your nollig off the kemper is inpressive in my opinion

    my a ask you to have a look at my problem in the problem section

    it is concerning the stereo effects loop the connection is fine but i deleted the option

    stereo loop

    thanks in advance

  • Send your private mail adress

  • Hi. I see in an old post that you downloaded a free lasselammert’s profile of a Diezel vh4 with “Adam Jones settings”. Unfortunately that link does not work anymore. Could you please let me try it?

  • Hi Paul, I am new to the forum and find your posts very helpful. Do you know of a good way to run a KPA stereo setup with 2 DXR10s? I just got them and they seem incredibly loud.

    • They can be incredibly loud, but can be tamed for quieter gigs, or at home. I use the Line Inputs of my DXR10, with the input level turned down a bit.

  • Quick question, I have a show coming up at Ace Of Cups and this would be the first time using my Kemper with a professional sound set up, where do you normally set your output volume for the FOH? I thought I read somewhere someone suggested -16db

    • Greetings! :) I have mine set at -15 or -16, too. In the Ouput Menu, Unlink the Main Outputs from your Master Volume, and then set the level. That way, they will not be affected by any changes you make later to the front panel Master Volume knob.

    • thank you for your quick responses

    • Sure ! Let me know when you are playing there :)

    • were playing with Leeway on 8/24

  • I just noticed your in Columbus and play with the Reaganomics, your playing tomorrow at the Zoofari with my cousins band The Martini Affair, Will Newsome. He is a shredder

    • Hi! Yes, he and I know each other - we've played several gigs with them. They are a great, fun band :)

  • Hey Paul... where does the Banshee talkbox fit in the signal chain with your KPA? I just got one and haven't figured out how to put it all together. Cheers

  • Hey Paul, saw your comments about your Daisy Rock Stardust Retro-H 12-string guitar. Can you tell me what the nut width is on yours?

    • Hello! The neck width at the nut is 1.6875", and the string spacing at the nut from the 12th string to the 1st string is 1.5".

  • Hi Pauk, how do you connect your Banshee to your Kemper?

    • Hello - I have it connected to the Input of the Kemper.

  • never mind i found them on the rig exch. Thanks man

  • Hey whats up your profiles are tight as shit. pedal steel, wah formant etc. I just couldnt find where i could download them. That is if your sharing them with people , if so could you show the way to get some of those cool profiles?

    • Thank you! My rigs are available on the Rig Exchange / in Rig Manager. Search for "paults" and you will find them.

  • Love your profiles Paults, Really having fun with the shine pad ones, They sound amazing

  • Hey Paults...Wondering if you could give me your opinion on your JBL LSR308's? I seen in a post you said you use them and I'm considering a pair. I would not do any mixing on them only playing through them with the Kemper. The room is about 24ft by 15ft. I'm interested in them because of the wide sweet spot with their patented stereo imaging. I currently have a used set of Alesis M1 620's 6.5 inch speaker. They sound pretty good but wondering if I will get a much "bigger/fuller" sound using the 8 inch LSR's. Do you think they would be a good choice for just playing through for my given room size or would they maybe be too much and be better off with a smaller size. I appreciate your input and opinion on these monitors. Thanks!

    • If you are unsatisfied with your Alesis speakers, I'm sure these would sound much bigger and fuller. They would not be too much for the room - I use them in a smaller space than 24x15.

    • Awesome thanks man.

  • Hey there brother. Wanted to see if you are willing to be of service. I have a non-powerd kemper rack unit running into two powerd monitors. I also have two eventide h9's running in stereo into the effects loop. I want to incorporate the banshee into my rig. My understanding is that if I run the banshee in the front of my rig that I will not be able to use the effects inside the kempER which would include my eventide in the effects loop. Is this true? If so, I wanted to (if possible) run the banshee inline with my two eventide into the effect loop. This option (in theory) would be optimum for I could mix epic eventide sounds with the banshee. Thank you, Marcus.

    • Hello! The Banshee output is sent through a tube, into your mouth. The sound is typically sent to the PA with a vocal microphone. If you want your H9s to be able to have an effect on the Banshee output, you could do dimething complicated like this: get a small mixer. FX loop send to Banshee. Banshee bypass output to mixer . Connect a microphone to another mixer input. Connect the output of the mixer to the H9s.

    • Alright. Is there a simpler/way to hook up the banshee and use the effects that come with the Kemper? And or, can I run one of my eventides together with the banshee in front of my amp? Thank you so very much for your time, much appreciated!

    • There has to be a microphone, so people can hear the sound of the Banshee. You could put one H9 before the Banshee, and connect the microphone to the PA.

    • Awesome, thank you again!

  • Just wanted to say been messing around with your shimmer rigs. Outstanding had the hairs standing up on my neck very atmospheric and ambient.

    • Thanks!!! I'm very glad you like them that much :(

  • Hi I'm new here - I tried to find your Fender Dyn DR paults1 profiles - but I can't find them when I search on Rig Exchange

    • Hello, search for "Fender Dyn DR paults" - Rig Exchange truncated the names of versions 1 and 2. If you are looking for them because of the "clean Fender" thread, start with your guitar volume low. These are clean with the guitar volume down, and cranked with it up :)

    • You can put the effects before the Banshee, and then connect the microphone to the regular PA system, so people can hear the sound that comes out of your mouth.

    • Thank you very much my friend. Blessings

  • Thanks for the Uriah Heep tip. Never heard of them. Much appreciated!
