Kemper Rig Check - Trivium's Matt Heafy

  • Published on Jul 3, 2016 veröffentlicht
  • Trivium are one of the hardest working bands out there. We had the chance to meet them between their big summer festival shows at an "in between club gig" at Zeche Bochum. We talked to Matt Heafy about the Trivium based rigs and we are able to get some user questions answered.

    I agree. I use to be a purist and hated the amp simulators until I bought one of these. I'm not a great guitar player but this is so simple and easy to use. I got sick of hauling a ton of equipment and relying on the sound guy.

    awesome band and this is the exact head I want for my amp

    Mine is shipping now, after years of fighting it because I am an elitist tube head. It just sounds too good and is so simple it's a dumb choice to not use a Kemper at this point, small home studio or on the road it does it all.

      Very happy with my profiler for studio monitors use, impressive. Still fighting to get that tone on a real amp (even bought the Kemper Kone for my 1x12). What’s your experience with real cabs for in the room feeling?

      @David James curious to hear too.. I have a little over a year with my Kemper Powerhead. It's a monster.

    Trivium doesn't have a private jet? Jesus people we keep dropping the ball.

      I the 80s they would have a private jet. In an intervew Misha from Periphery said that albums and shows didn’t pay the bills, he earned money via Clip-Share, endorsements and selling merchandising.

      Mattycakes they’re not on same level as Metallica or Iron Maiden. Unfortunately, this is about as far you go with a successful metal band these days. To make them a commercial success, they’d have to “sell out” and create poppy music to appease the generic crowd. I like them just the way they are now.

      Chae H with good IRs they all sound comparable. And it's not like Trivium is running models of clean boutique amps in their Kemper. They're only using the 5150 models ffs.

    3:07 He says that there is a tubescreamer in there... So did the Kemper model the tube screamer as well? Or does he have it as a pedal?

    • VortechBand
      VortechBand 4 years ago +1

      Or, in case I misread. Yes, when you profile with the Kemper, you profile your entire rig including pedals, the cabinet, etc. If you had a chorus pedal active, you will have it "built-in" on your profile. You cannot "change" cabinets or effects after the fact. You will need to create a new profile, if you prefer to use a Mesa cab instead of Marshall, for example.

    • VortechBand
      VortechBand 4 years ago +1

      I believe he's talking about the profile he uses. Not that there is a separate TS built-in on the Kemper, or a physical pedal.

    He requested it from Kemper in 2016 - Line6 delivered it in 2018. What a shame. Time for Kemper to blast the world with the new Kemper in a pedalboard format. Move!

      I guess our main tone is a rig kind of from someone else, I believe it is a Colin Richardson setting of an Andy Sneap rig.

    • Mic1904
      Mic1904 5 years ago +1

      I think it's a custom profile that they made with Colin Richardson. I don't think its commercially available.
