    Great content, HW!
    You mentioned that there’s a way to take your sounds (rigs) from performance mode and edit them in browser mode, so they can live in browser mode. Is there a way you could explain how to do this?
    I would truly appreciate it 👍🏼

    I've owned my Kemper rig for almost give years and still learned so much from this tutorial. Kudos!

    HW, this was very helpful!
    Can you do a similar version of this but use the Stage, instead? I feel like there’s a shortage of tutorials for the Stage, and the ones that are out there are hit-or-miss. I know Kemper has tutorials but they’re a bit dull and long, and I have ADD ;) lol

    Nice HW I know my Kemper pretty well but I always learn something watching you. I always play in performance mode but I set up banks per guitar not per song unless I need a specific delay or effect. I like to use morphing mostly for gain to push a crunchy sound into a high gain sound. I use my Kemper powerhead different than most people I use a 112 Orange cab with a 90 watt Celestion Creme it sounds awesome call me old fashioned but I just can't get away from that amp in the room sound.

      I think Kemper sounds best through a real cab. I love it through my stack.

    Just got myself a kemper rack and any time I have questions, I just watch your videos. Awesome work

    I just purchased the power rack model. I'm already blown away by it. Your tutorials have been very helpful Have you done a tutorial on profiling an amp? getting ready to profile my ENGL Victor Smolski head. I'm using my Egnator over-sized 112/Celestion Vintage 30 cab. going to try 3 mics/Sennheiser/MXL/and good old SM57. MXL is a large diaphragm model, Sennheiser 421, and the Shure beta 57 is for the back of the cab. (it has the option of removing partial back cover.) I've recorded here in the studio this way, and have had good results in the tone dept. here's where I am a true newbie. I am assuming I'll need to profile them one at a time?
    Thanks again for the videos!

    Hey HW, great tutorial! What about tails? Do they carry over when switching presets? Or is the switching abrupt...

    I have been using Helix for 6 years. Just ordered a Kemper stage and it should arrive in a few days. Your 101 and 201 videos have been immensely helpful to help me see how the Kemper can do the things I have been doing using snapshots on the Helix, and even ( I think!) more - like easily swapping out the amp but keep the effects, or to save an entire group of effects with their settings to use over and over again... I never knew this was possible before. I'm even more excited about my decision to try the Kemper (which I should have done 7 years ago... live and learn). Thanks!

      @just some minced garlic best gear decision I ever made, should have done it 8 years ago. Running stereo with 2 Kemper Kabs now :-)

    I just bought a Kemper Stage. I would love for this video to be remade for that particular model, since it has a different selection of buttons. (No copy/paste for example)

    Super, super helpful. Just bought a Stage and trying to get my head around it all as it is pretty baffling at first. But this and the 101 video really helped!

      @Tim Joseph the clean amps sound fine to me. The gain control is very progressive and realistic

    • Tim Joseph
      Tim Joseph 11 months ago

      @David Lee I hear that the digital amps are digital sounding . Especially cleans. Do you find the Kemper solves this?

    • David Lee
      David Lee 11 months ago +1

      @Tim Joseph yes, definitely! Still feel like I’m only scratching the surface. I don’t experiment an awful lot with the amps but use a few basic clean ones as a starting point. The quality of the effects, particularly reverbs and delays are the hidden gems. I had an HX FX prior and a controversial opinion but I think Kemper effects leave Helix in the dust. The Kemper is gradually replacing my 4x Eventide stomp boxes and they’re pretty untouchable still. The gamechanger is plugging the Kemper into a computer for the Rig software - so much easier!

    First thanks so much for the video - it really was very helpful! Tip, if I could be so bold... wear white socks! The black ones blend in and didn't always catch my attention when you hit a button on the foot switch. I just received my power rack and foot switch in an attempt to lighten my performance load. (I am getting kind of old - 66) I think this rig really has potential. I hope I can fully understand it before I meet Jesus. Seriously though, I appreciate the effort you put into making this video, great job!

    Awesome content! How much of this can you do with the new editor in rig manager?

  • Iain Frame
    Iain Frame 2 years ago

    When I import a number of different amps into a single performance rig, so that I have say a Vox AC 30 clean tone in slot 1 and a Mesa Mark V in slot 2, they both seem to share the same gain and EQ settings. So if I clean up the Vox and take the gain down to 9 o'clock, then switch over to the Mesa, its gain is also down to 9 o'clock. Can someone sanity check that this is correct? If so, presumably, you'd need to use something like a stomp box to make slot 2 heavier? Thanks. 🎸

    Perfect. I was just getting ready to crack the manual on Performance Mode. Now I don't need to. Makes me want to get a remote.

  • Marc LeBlanc

    For me, it will only save fx on rig 1 in the performance. The other rigs won't save the fx for some reason.

  • Tim Joseph

    Good Video. Can you set a rig to use the external volume pedal to be Wah for only that rig?

  • CrazyCow500
    CrazyCow500 2 years ago

    So when you say you're allowed 5 rigs, that means only 5 separate starting points? What if you have a ton of songs in a set with vastly different tones? Is it possible to have different rigs, for say, 15 songs where you could customize each section (verse, hook, solo, etc) not unlike how a bradshaw midi setup would be?

    • marzzz
      marzzz 2 years ago +1

      You can save 15 different Performances (up to 128) for each of your 15 songs, with up to 5 different Rigs per performance.

    • Lu Kas
      Lu Kas 2 years ago +1

      You can have 5 rigs per bank. You also have 127 banks, I think. It's like a 5 Button per Bank PC-Midi swichter + a row of CC switches to turn on and off the individual effects, or whatever.
      In the end, you have more than enough sounds avaiable on your feet ;)

    • Kristijan Sinković

      Performance mode (1-5) is something similar to Snapshots on Helix. 4 switches in upper row on Kemper equals to Helix stomp control mode.

    This is great, but you’re going wayyy too fast in a lot of parts. I still don’t understand how to save a rig to each switch, and you’re over here grouping the effects chain...slow down

      this is a 201 video, not 101 like some others. There are points in which he assumes you already understand basic functions of the Kemper. Not trying to insult you, but starting with the 101 vids might be helpful.

    Why do you need this swamp of sounds and amps?, Isn't it better to find "your own sound" and create music using one amp some pedals, technique creativity?.
