Yeah , may attitude in the previous post was a spoof ,

https://www.guitar-muse.com/kemper-profiling-amp-2949-2949

In this interview he was talking about the business model in question 4 . He comments more on other interviews , but I'll have to dig a bit.

His keyboard line is a parallel of what to expect . He still supports it .

They may respond to the editor eventually , I would imagine whatever is at the top of the list is next. They have been listening apparently.

This thread is hurting a small business! :rotflmao
If small business is an excuse, the AmpliFire has had an editor since day one. At a $599 price point. I'd wager that Kemper has moved a bit more product than the Atomic boys, including Atomic's speaker line.

It was a joke in regards to the other thread.
Atomic promised it to have an editor right away, while Kemper didn't.
And the Amplifire has only 3 buttons and a bunch of dials making an editor kind of needed, while the Kemper is easily accessible via the front panel.

You get a DAW and then bitch the keyboard and mouse just aren't like the organic knobs you used to have on an outboard. So you might buy an external controller with knobs, or these days, some touchscreen.

Now you have an organic unit with knobs and ppl want to go back to mouse and keyboard. Makes you wonder why people don't bitch their tube amps don't have a digital editor.

A surface controller often sits in front of the user and provides access to oft-used functions, whereas the KPA often sits off to the side, sometimes out of arms reach, making it somewhat impractical to tweak when sitting in front of a PC.

When my KPA is acting up, I often have to make it sit in a corner for a "time out". On rare occasions, when it has been extremely naughty...I send it to it's room without supper.

I'm confused, so help me understand. The KPA is an "Amp simulator". I don't play an amp in front of the computer. I play it with a band, or standing in the room playing/making music. Just who sits in front of their computer to play a guitar unless they're learning some tab or searching for the next jam track?

I know, people setting up their KPA for a show say they would like an editor, and part of me gets that, but I still can't see how that's faster than using the knobs, unless the editor is on a touch screen. Physical kobs still kill digital for "touch". You typically use an editor when the interface is limited, like a 1U rackmount.

The KPA isn't a single amp, and any real amp is going to have far fewer controls than the KPA(especially in regards to effects). I can access some functions far faster using a mouse and keyboard vs. the front panel. That said, some people (such as myself) tweak while working in front of a DAW, and in my case it would be far more convenient to make adjustments using a mouse and keyboard rather than have to get out of my chair every time I need to tweak something.

This two-front discussion is going South.
Those who don't feel the need for an editor blame those who do, and advise to ...

  • not stand in front of a computer when using the KPA
  • buy a second computer and connect it wireless
  • buy a control surface
  • ...
Now, I don't need an editor and a full implementation of presets managing abilities would make me the happiest Kamper, still...

... are you guys serious?! o_O

Confronting others' needs with ours is never a way to build any quality in a community. I know chatting is free, but... :rolleyes:

This thread must be in that notorious brainstorming phase called "say whatever crosses your mind" :D

;)
