Well, guys, I've done a lot of research; including reading this forum, and checking out numerous youtube videos of the top modeling devices, and finally decided on the Kemper. I've still a lot to figure out about it, but I feel good about the basic amp sounds available. I put together this little (pop-countryish?) ditty, or, collection of guitar parts to showcase some of the sounds I liked, in case any of you would like to hear. I didn't buy any additional profile packs or anything, but possibly down the line. I've been able to find some sounds I've found useful. Thus far, I've used it for one recording session, and one church service. I just wanted to try it live; I got the powered version. My intent, though is to use it mainly for recording.
