Did you miss the FX quality when switching from Fractal to Kemper?

There is a real selling point. Hundreds of great amps at your fingertips. You just need to buy them all first. :D
Yeah... I would've done this differently, now that I know better.

But start with the free ones. There are over 15k out there in Rig Exchange. Even if only 1% are considered great, that's still a bunch. Many of the profile makers offer free intro packs, and there are many good ones.

I'd recommend getting the Tone Junkies everything pack right now. It's $150, for something like 4300 profiles. They really do a professional job, and they have a HUGE library of hard-to-get amps.

That's why I moved along. I got stuck in the Profile rabbit hole.

Also, Kemper couldn't do the EVH micro pitch detune thing that well. Haven't found anyone aside from Fractal who can.
If you're a rabbit-hole personality, the Axe FX is arguably worse, what with deep editing and nearly limitless IRs and AxeChange and 3rd party stuff like AustinBuddy et al.

I am and it’s not, for me anyway.

Just spent a good amount of time with a mate, (who is also interested in his 1st Kemper/Fractal) comparing the two units. Have to say, The AX8 holds its own regardless of what i do. I'm currently thinking i might grab the FM3 when they land here in OZ, that way i don't loose my spot in the invites. Then lay a deposit down on the Kemper Stage. Best of both worlds then.
Thanx everyone for your input, such a great time to be a guitarist with all theses tools at our disposal.

No
Basic Legacy Reverb and Delay is all I need.
I have a favorite Ambiance setting, I use it on every preset.

No one's feelings are hurt.

You should take your edgelord posting over to 4chan or 8kun... they'll think you're a riot over there.
I want even talking to you. If you dont have a sense of humor then I suggest you need to leave this board.

@Elantric @JiveTurkey So you guys have seen me on this board for many years. You think I am trying to troll this board? Really guys?
No no no I didn't take it that way at all BD! You're not trolling. I just know for me, that I didn't have to dive in to the paid profile rabbit hole. It's a thing for sure; but not a thing I ever had a problem with.

I had a Kemper for a little while. Didnt have a problem with it at all. The only reason I dont have it now is I just had too much stuff and needed to downsize. I was just making light of Pat6969's comment.

Agree completely. I just read through this whole thread and was like... Wtf where did that hostility come from? That kind of thing makes tgp a much worse place to hang out and read and learn.

There are 64,000+ rigs on the Kemper Rix Exchange, many of them are f'ing excellent.

You don't have to buy squat.
The original comment you made here was in response to a comment I made to Pat6969. This was the start of the hostilities.

Once again, I click the "Unwatch Thread" link ....
To be fair; this thread has already been done a bazillion times already. So there's nothing new to really see that those of us (including yourself) that have been around the block a time or 700 doesn't already "know".
