    I ordered on from Nova Musik they had one in stock. They also gave me the pre order discount.

    Now I have to wait. Only have 1 tube amp it's a JCA50H and Marshall 4x12. I'll try to profile my GSP1101. And whatever amps I can find.

    Thanks guys

    Ring your mates. They are sure to have a few amps among them.
    Enjoy the Kemper man.

    Thanks, I'm psyched. I need to find something to control it.

    Maybe i'll try the GSP/C1. That way i'll have a backup.

    What's everyone else using for a midi controller?

    Does the Kemper come with any preset (Built in) models?

    Awesome. I can't stop playing mine. There are some patches that I really can't tell its a modeller. it sounds soo good and real. Specially after you find your patches you like and adjust to taste. Be sure to check out the Brute and Phat user profiles, Till's profiles, Okstrat's xtacy profiles to start for sure.

    Hi,

    Congratulations to a wonderful creative tool. I suggest you send you family away for the weekend so you can indulge. :D

    Cheers,

    left a bit...
    I'm hesitating to order one - keep going to but all this talk of feel makes me think twice. My last and only experience with a modeller was a Boss GT3 a long time ago - stiff and sterile are comments that I'm still reading today. In another thread someone posted about a valve power amp and a VHT fat bottom cab being the answer.

    So my question - has anyone found the best way to clone and use with a power amp/cab if we can't eliminate the cab? It looks like we have to profile the whole preamp/amp/speaker but that doesn't translate well to reamping.

    I'm an amp/cab player and love the sound coming out of it. I don't get some talk about you have to eliminate the cab etc....

    Congrats on getting the KPA you will be a Happy Kemper!

    Thanks I hope i'm a happy kemper:)
    I'll be using it live mostly, With a QSC K10 with some controller.
    I've been using the GSP for a couple years. Before that a GSP2101 (my best tone so far). Flextone 2, XTlive.

    I'm really liking the KPA clips. I'm sure it'll sound better in person.

    KPA/Poweramp/cab user here too.
    Crosshair is right, sounds fantastic in this context. Im a cork sniffer and loving the Kemper.
    The talk about feel baffles me cos I can't tell the difference, but to each his own as they say.

    I don't think that you'll have problems finding any profiles. I think that these guys would profile a ham sandwich if they could, they're doing everything they can get their hands on. :roll
