I'd check with the manufacturer before removing the feet. Normally with 4 feet you get air entering the bottom of the unit from 4 sides.As long as one of the openings lines up with the vent, you should be ok.
No, this is because after dialing in clean sens correctly the perceived volume between clean and distorted sounds stays the same.Is this also why when you change the gain up or down the overall volume stays the same on a profile and only the amount of gain changes?
This is another one of features of the Kemper that I love.
As Eng. Kemper has explained, the Gain knob works and reacts as the output volume of a clean boost in front of the amp (can't remember whether it was in this very thread?).Is this also why when you change the gain up or down the overall volume stays the same on a profile and only the amount of gain changes?
My understanding was that the Clean Sensitivity parameter was meant to be used as an Input trim, so that switching from humbuckers to single coil guitars would result in the same amount of gain when playing the same amp/profile.It directly depends how you have dialed in CLEAN SENS.
Try how it affects the balance when you dial it in differently.
From the manual:My understanding was that the Clean Sensitivity parameter was meant to be used as an Input trim, so that switching from humbuckers to single coil guitars would result in the same amount of gain when playing the same amp/profile.
Here we’re specifically speaking of adjusting the amount of Gain in an amp, not the input trim.
You're right! I was thinking of Distortion Sensitivity. My bad .From the manual:
Different types of guitars produce different output levels depending on their pickups and string gauge: for example,
humbucker pickups generate higher voltages compared to single coils, and active guitars generate even hotter
signal levels. If you feel that clean sounds are either very loud or very soft compared to distorted sounds, you can
adjust Clean Sens to a level where clean sounds have the same perceived loudness as distorted sounds. Clean
Sens determines the volume of clean sounds, but not the way that the amp or the effects are driven. A guitar with
low output level stays cleaner; a hot guitar will still distort more easily.
I'm hearing s number of issues going on with the stage. It's a little concerning. Hope they iron out the wrinkles soonI got mine in yesterday. I have most everything set up. It was very easy. I did have a problem with mine freezing up. It wouldn’t do anything. Wouldn’t even power off. I had to unplug and power up again. I downloaded the latest firmware so hopefully that fixed it.
Nice! Doesn’t seem like used prices on the toaster have fallen yet so I would list it pretty soon.Well, I got my Kemper Stage today!!
I did stumble upon the issue ButchR describes above where, after updating the Stage to firmware 7.01b, it freezes. Had to unplug the power cord and plug it back again to regain control. Besides that hiccup, everything worked as expected.
The Kemper Stage is a thing of beauty. Loving all the lights! I made my room look like a dark stage, with only a couple of blue LED lights on, and you can see everything perfectly. The reveal video made it look ugly, IMO (I even said as much back then, when it was first announced). This thing actually looks good in person!
The buttons and knobs feel better than the Rack or the Head. Maybe because it’s brand new? But the knobs definitely feel more sturdy than my other units. They have more resistance when turning them, in a nice way.
However, the highlight of all of this is how light my Rig is now. I’m currently using a crappy Gator bag I had laying around, which I’ll eventually replace with the official Kemper Stage bag or something else. But it is amazing to me how much lighter this feels compared to what the Head + Remote feel inside the Kemper bag. This was the sole purpose for purchasing the Stage and, so far, it looks like I made the right choice. I’ll give it a couple of weeks of gigging before listing my Head + Remote for sale, just in case. But yeah, very happy with this purchase!!
Well done Kemper team! Well done!!
I get the replacement tomorrow. The retailer is checking it over before sending it. Can’t fault them.That’s disappointing. Hope the replacement is trouble free. I’d be so all over this if it had a Bluetooth editor.
Maybe BT will be in a future version.I get the replacement tomorrow. The retailer is checking it over before sending it. Can’t fault them.
A Bluetooth editor would have been amazing. The editor is due out in the next 6 weeks or so. Personally, I find it fairly easy to edit on the unit, but setting up performances and inputting the names manually is a massive drag.
