Just a query - Have you bothered to update your unit, with the current updates?
Personally, I have not. I keep reading negative reports about updates ruining/affecting the sound for the worst.
As it's only basically reverbs and such, in the updates, I have not bothered. My current sound is pretty perfect.
I just wondered what 'your' take on all of this was?
Regards from Liverpool, Uk
Personally I don't see the harm in updating as long as you stick to the non-beta releases if stability is paramount, Liam.
Like you 'though, I haven't updated in a long time as FX updates mean nothing to me other than the fact that I'm happy for Kemper - it makes others happy and attracts new users. I plan on using DAW effects and recording dry. Who knows 'though, when the time finally comes I may well end up relying on some effect or other that I don't have a plugin for; the Kemper's effects are definitely high-quality IMHO and nothing to sneeze at.
I do plan to update soon 'though, if for no other reason than to keep up a bit (I'm a long way behind on OS 220.127.116.1125), and if I don't get around to it, for sure when OS6 comes along I'll be doing so then as I can't wait for the RM-editing features which I assume you'd need OS6 for. It's gonna be great, man. No doubt!
Hope you're well, Liam, and I hope this helps, mate,
Thanks Nicky. I'm ok mate. I too am not really bothered about effects, as the Kemper's are superb, plus I have Strymon reverb, delay and chorus, at my disposal. G.A.S is a wonderful thing...
Except for the person sitting next to you in the cinema...
Hi. I tried to write you a message but it isn‘t possible. You mentioned in a post your opinion about profiles the Marshall JVM. Do you have any idea, where I can get profiles which really sound like this amp?
Oops! I see my Conversations area is 100% full; that'd be the reason, Stefan. I've been "deleting" older ones in order to keep up with the addition of new ones, the number of which has been OTT since I returned.
The first round of F1 starts in 30 mins, but once that and a couple o' other things are taken care of, I'll find a few messages to delete and send you a PM. Hope you're OK with this; I'm not comfortable "broadcasting" one Profiler's work over another's here on my wall. I think I may have done it previously, but upon reflection I don't think it's professional.
My bad for not knowing my PM allocation was full; sorry Stefan, and I'll PM you tonight, mate.
Nice to see you around again!!! We missed you, pal.
Aw shucks. Thank you, Alex!
I missed you guys too, man.
Welcome to the "club", Wayne. Your support is much-appreciated, as was your rooting for me recently.
Go you good thing, mate.
Hey happy you are back!
Thank you, Pete.
Very kind of you, mate. Hopefully I'll be able to be of service some time soon.
In the meantime... lots of PM'ming to take care of. This is gonna take a while...
I'm glad you're back man!!
Thank you, Thomas!
Mate, and I'm glad you chose to stick around after your fuzz-pedal woes and continue to service the community with your tireless Profiling efforts.
As I've said to you many times, it's very-much appreciated by the whole Kemper family, man. Great stuff.
You're the best man! Thanks so much fresh profiles and Impulse responses are on the way. Because of users like i'm motivated to make more for the community.
Don't stop, man. They might have to create a new Rig Exchange just to hold all your Profiles!
MM, so glad you are back. I have missed your insights and downplayed sense of humor.
Thank you, Wayne!
The ol' Monkey SOH will be further-downplayed from now on I'm afraid, so the insights may have to suffice. If I could just locate that elusive automaton button...
Welcome back mate
Thank you, Liam!
Thank you also for chiming in on my behalf, mate.
I'm individually thanking folks via PM and my quota is already almost-full, so for now at least, I'm grateful that you used my wall as it saves a PM slot for the time being. You'll hear from me later "officially", as I wade my way through the "mountain".
It's fantastic to be back; I'll never take this place for granted. Hope you're OK, bud, and thank you once again!
Welcome to the "club", Diego!
I've noticed that you've "Liked" some of my posts lately. Glad I said something useful, mate.
Hehe oh yes. Most helpful.
You're too-kind, brother, and thank you again for your support!
I'm new to the forum and I was wondering if it's possible for me to download your
Kemper Wah-settings List as Presets 2018-11-12.zip
When I try to download them it says
Access denied. You’re not authorized to view this page.
Please is it possible to get those?
thanks so Much
Firstly, thank you for following, mate!
I checked the wah thread - downloaded the zip and unpacked it, just to be sure it's still working.
Usually issues like not being able to download something from the forum are fixed, in no particular order, by:
Clearing browser cache and cookies
Logging out and back into the Kemper site
Rebooting your computer.
If none of this works, send me your email address via PM and I'll mail the presets to you.
HTH, Chris, and thank you once again for following, man!
One other thing: Are you able to post in the Private forum?
If not, this would explain the problem and you'd need to register your unit's serial number at the main Kemper site.
Sorry I kept saying "Chris" and not "Cris", mate!
So... did my tips work or are you still not able to download?
After registering my kemper I was able to download it!
I sometimes experience some flangering sound out of my monitors, without having any effect, distortion, modulation,etc... turned on.
Do you know what could this be?
Excellent! Glad we sorted that one out, and hope you enjoy the wahs, man.
As for the flanging sound, it could be caused by many things, but I'm guessing it's most-likely that it's comb filtering brought about by one of the following scenarios:
1) Outputs that needn't be are being combined in your interface's internal mixer.
2) Outputs that should be panned hard-left-and-right aren't, again, most likely within your interface.
3) The Monitor Out from the Kemper (mono) is being added to the stereo one within the interface's mixing software.
4) There's a DAW bleed of the signal that's combining with your live playing, yet again, within your interface.
Welcome to this exclusive club, Mike, and thank you!
If your IQ is above 50 you're over-qualified, matey.
monkey_man, as always thx for your vote of confidence. My is IQ is luckily just above 50 so I’m relieved 😅. If I might pick you brain and ask for some advice on getting the most out of rigs that multiple people are using with great satisfaction. To this end I struggle with getting a good clear tone with harmonics and singing sustain. Therefore I -in my untrained mind - think I need more distortion or some other thing that I frankly don’t know where to start. The great thing about Kemper is it has almost unlimited capability to refine a tone, but a novice like me has no idea where I should begin. I realize Gilmour tone is “Gilmour tone” because of Gilmour, but I see many people who are obviously also very talented getting very close. I also realize that tone is in the fingers and technique maters. any articles or in-depth video you can recommend to aide me in my quest sir. Happy New Year 🎆🎈 R, Mike
Based on what I've heard, it seems like ToneJunkie TV would be a great place to start.
Also, Eltzejupp (Frank Eltze)'s home-brew videos that he only started making recently could help. He's made 30-odd in a month:
monkey_man, Additional question on the import / drag and drop in RM. now that I have the rigs imported from Maurizio, how can I get the stomps , effects, tonestacks etc into my profiler.
You have to place the folders of Rigs, Stomps and so on onto a Kemper-formatted USB stick. Copy them to the "Shared" folder, place the stick in the KPA and use the "Import" feature.
Everything will be added to the KPA at once; you can't select individual folders / categories, so place only what you want to import into that Shared folder.
thx monkey_man, I did try this AM. Also, As recommended by MEAMBOBO, Before I tried to import, I deleted all info from my USB stick on my iMac and then formatted in KPA. copied all stomp, stomps, tonestacks, effects, reverb, delay I got from Maurizio’s latest on his website into shared folder. I did not copy any rigs onto the USB this time. Import worked much longer than before, but still gave me me an unknown error. Anything i’m Missing here😬. Thx mate! R, Mike
There's a certain Dutch Profiler who offers an acoustic pack I'd highly recommend; it should sound great with the Taylors.
This is the wrong subforum to mention commercial Profilers by name, so leave a message on my wall if you're unsure who I'm talking about.
Please from which one
Same bloke I recommended to Chris below, vjclaus:
His thread in case the site doesn't load:
My pleasure, man.
Say hi to Bert for me if you can!

I haven't been around enough to know who's who yet. Can you point me in the right direction for him?
Sure Chris, it's Bert Meulendijk.
Here's his site:
No wuckers, brah.
Hmmm. My browser just gave me an existential error. bmprofiles.com does not exist.
That's the link in his signature. Might be worth asking Bert directly in his thread. He either needs to update the link or his site is down.
Here's the thread:
If you say Monkey Man sent you, Bert will appreciate that (and so will I); I tend to steer folks in his direction as I'm a huge rap for his work.
tks man u have them now can't wait to try them out happy days
The consensus in that thread seems to be that they're very-good.
tks again yea his cab section looks very good too.
hi monkey man
sorry to bother you with my question but can't find diogofis profiles on RE and was wondering if you had them saved my e-mail address is email@example.com ur would be greatly appreciated if you don't have them handy dont worry about it happy kemper ing.
No bother at all, mate; I love wall messages.
Diogo's RE name is "Diogo F. de Agui". Search for "Diogo" to be "safe" if you like.
Here's his thread:
All my personal profiles - Marshall, soldano, dr z and others
Geez, can't edit wall messages anymore.
That wasn't meant to be a laughing emoji, but a smiley.
I'll try again:
Hi I saw u mention there lately about the best jvm pack any chance you could tell me who that is by?Thanks Fergal
PM responded to, brother.
Oh well, we led for 11/12ths of the game in total (105 minutes out of 114), and the opposition hit the front by less than a goal with 1m 45s left on the clock in a 2-hour game.
Grand Final losses don't come any harder than that.
Just a wish for any Magpie fans out there...
Go the freakin' 'Pies!
HUGE day tomorrow...
Happy Bday Duder!
Happy Birthday brother a package is finally underway!!
Thank you, Brother Ash.
I don't deserve it.
Happy birthday brother!
Thank you so much, Ant!
I'll keep my fingers crossed that the hurricane doesn't hit you too hard, mate.
Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers today, brother!
It's probably going to miss us. Hopefully
Fingers, toes, arms and legs crossed...
Happy birthday to me. Yay!
As always on this bitter-sweet day, my heart goes out to all my American brothers and sisters. I watched the tragedy live, continuously from the moment it "broke" for a week. It felt like my guts had been yanked from my body, and I've certainly been permanently-affected, just as you guys were.
Shocking, and unspeakably-tragic. My heart, thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Welcome to the least-exclusive club on the planet, morimagic!
Honoured to have you here, mate.
Welcome back, Shawn, you Silly Billy, you!
Welcome to the Monkey Clan™, Syntek.
Be sure to let me know how you went with those recommendations, eh bro'?
Wow, another 2-for-1 offer!
Welcome, Bruce and Mladen! Thank you for your support; you guys have made my day.
Happy birthday, Geraldo!
Hope you're well and that you have a great day, mate. Woohoo!
Welcome to the Monkey Clan™, CG, and thank you for your support, mate!
Most welcome! I like the trademark!
Well, you're now officially licensed to use it in any way you please, bud.
Do me a favour 'though - please don't place it on any sex toys for sale... unless you're gonna offer me a commission.
Holy cow! A two-for-one offer!
Welcome, Freeed and Deej09.
Hopefully I'll be able to live up to your (hopefully very-low) expectations, guys.
Congratulations on your Kempers too, by the way!
