The currently best "digital amp"

kingbee, 12.05.2012
As an experienced studio and live guitarist, I am always very skeptical when I read praise for new products, but in the case of the KPA they are quite justified. The Kemper will, in my view, revolutionize the market of the modeling amps similarly as at the time the first iPhone the mobile phone market.
A thoroughly innovative device, very well processed (made in Germany) and affordable.

To the sounds:
As a long-time POD user (last POD HD500, before X3 Live etc.) I have compared the Kemper first with the HD500 1: 1 and can only say "adios Line 6" ... no comparison to the sounds of the POD, the Kemper Sounds more fresh, livelier, and more like a "real" amp. The presets are not my taste (the PODs are even more extreme), but with some editing you can quickly create excellent sounds from the presets.

About profile:
The profiling sounds like a landing extraterrestrial and is very, very loud (depending on the neighbors), depending on the amp and setup, but the results are excellent. With the own created sounds the sun really rises, finally I can "amkemper" my amps (Dr. Z Maz Sen., Boogie Mk II, Marshall 100W Plexi, Fender Blues Junior and others) and take them everywhere. The sounds are surprisingly close to the original, whereby the right know-how (Miking of the boxes) and good equipment (microphones, boxes, studios etc.) is the prerequisite for an optimal result.

Operation, Connections and Effects:
Finally an amp, which is reduced to the essentials and easy to operate and no "egg-laying wool milk". Who needs already bad sounding synth sounds or inferior psychedelic effects in a guitar amp .... The effects are by the bank qualitatively very high quality and better than the POD (eg Chorus, Reverb and Delay). The operation is simple and intuitive and the Kemper has all the connections you need.

Since I use the KPA mainly in the studio and have not played live, I can -no-no experience, in any case, he will be used to me also in the next gigs and the next tour live.

I can definitely recommend the KPA to all guitarists, who are looking for the best possible and authentic sounds, absolutely!

Supplement for monthly use:

I am still thrilled by the Kemper and have now played with midi footboard and expression pedal live, no problems, everything runs around error-free ;-)

Very good ..... numeric

millenofx77, 29.01.2012
the first time :

The kemper: all the internet music speaks about it for 7 months.
The hype is enormous and the expectations in consequence.

Use: remember your old boss gx-700 ..... it's the same!
The knob turns are infinissable, no preset edition by computer, writing a preset name takes 10 minutes, you have to select a cab as favorite to find it in the list of selectable cab etc etc there is work!

-characteristics: the idea is excellent, the effects exhaustive. The average routing

-son: good sample can not lie, the cleans (as announced on the various samples) are very good, the crunch too.
It sounds real authentic.
However, gain management quickly becomes artificial, and it is difficult to correct a preset on that level. Whatever you like / great, you do not like it ..... you do not transfigure it!

The big sounds and high gain, are the big losers of the story ......
C is just bad, the dual rectifier profile made by kemper himself in testimonial c is just not good.

- in the end profiles should flow, some already start paying (EUR), and the machine in spite of multiple delays bugg easily.

I have not kept .........



EDIT:
the second time

I decided to give a second chance to the kemper, following the sale of my axis fx II.
Many of the points evoked before when the non-intuitive use and a past century remains valid.
However a user of kemper "till" posted a series of profile that changes absolutely all the deal when to the high gain.
And I have to say that if bcp of profile does not present interest for me, I managed to find for each category (clean crunch modern high gain) 2 to 3 sounds of very good invoice.

However after 3 months, lassitude has returned.
In the end ca remains of the numeric with its quality and its defects, ais when (which was my case) we begin to focus on the defects we hear more than ca.
Back to the roots in analog
