Precisely where I am too - limited time to play, no appetite for menu diving. I *can* do it on the Kemper, I've just never enjoyed it. I've used the KPA as both an amp replacement and a all in one solution, and only really enjoyed it as an amp replacement. It's just not as good of a pedalboard (IMO of course) as a real analog pedalboard. I'm torn between buying a bunch of tools for making guitars (and furniture, I keep telling my wife, even though that's the most obvious lie ever) or a real analog amp with the proceeds from the anticipated sale. I have really really enjoyed the profiles of Morgan AC20's I've played, and am thinking of getting one of those unreliable fire machines for goofing off at home. My personal situation has kind of flipped, where most of the time I have to play is when I am at home at lunch now, and all of my family is gone, instead of playing late at night when they're all asleep.
