Hope it's cool to post a YT vid like this here. I thought it might be useful/fun for modeling folks.
Nice comparison. I liked the Axe 3 better, but being a Kemper owner I'm wondering which profile was used.
Why not use the same IR or cab section from the Kemper for both units in order to eliminate differences related to the cab?
It seems like the EQ profile was very different between the two amps, particularly on the high-gain. This makes it hard for me to make any judgement with confidence.
Profile the AXE-FX III JCM800 Model and IR and then compare that to the AXE. Or load a custom IR into both units, use a Direct JCM800 Profile and then compare to the AXE.
Or take an IR of the Kemper's cab section with the Axe-Fx. So many ways to do it right!
Or just take his demo for what it is, instead of telling how you'd have done it.
Because the Kemper is literally the only product where one can do a true apples to apples comparison.
I used a few here.
Because I'm an idiot who doesn't yet know how to do that. =] Also love that your avatar is Back For The Attack!!
I got to spend some time learning to do that. I shot one more vid for the 5150 III and before I do another one, I'm going to refine a bit so I can get them more true to what I'm trying to accomplish.
That said, one aspect of doing it this way is that most consumers of these will not know how to play around with such things and want to know what's in the box. So, I think I'm going to have to do the next videos with two samples - comparing like these and then comparing it with the same exact IR.
It's cool dude. Spend some time learning how to use these, they are both pretty deep devices (although I think the Kemper is a little less so) but the Kemper can literally get within a few percentage points of sounding exactly like the amp it's profiling when done right. I have a 5150 iii which I've profiled and between live cabs, PA speakers or headphones it's damn near impossible to tell which is the amp and which is the Profiler.
Have you ever used the tone match on the AXE FX as well? Wondering if you also can get that close with it. I know it's a different animal, but just curious.
Definitely. I consider it one of the most powerful tone shaping tools in the Axe-Fx. I've nailed many of my favorite Kemper profiles using it.
4.5 minutes of talking and 2.5 minutes of playing?
Talk less, play more!
Axe III FTW!
