    Kemper Double Tracker

    Solid.

    Video wasn't working before but looks like it's back up. Pretty sick for scratch tracks or live.

      I guess it's in the new beta firmware. I haven't tried it yet because I've spent the whole evening fiddling with the FM9 but I'll probably dig into it this weekend.

        I tried it, and it works, but it gets a solid meh from me. You could get this effect with a stereo widener with a panned delay.

        I know it's only in beta, but it cuts the signal almost in half, and you have to boost it almost all the way up to get uniform volume.

          Sounds like it’s similar to the double tracker in the Captor X.

            That's pretty slick!

            I wish Kemper's didn't look the way they did. That toaster has to be one of the ugliest pieces of gear out there and honestly, as great of tones as I've heard come out of them and as much as I know they're fully capable of, the aesthetic keeps me away.

            The Karmic Law is not kismet. It is not fate but cause and effect. It is a taskmaster to the unwise; a servant to the wise.

              I mean, rack visually can look like almost anything depending on the case you put it in.

                I really grew to like it in the lead up to getting mine. The designer/engineer originally came from a synth designing background and it reminds me totally of a synth. I find the layout of the controls to be WAY more common sense and valuable to workflow than anything else I've used.

                  Yeah I'm not usually a guy that whines about Betas but this is one I'm waiting for a proper release before I upgrade. I don't think this could functionally replace double tracking but for scratch tracks and live use, I think it's a killer feature to have without having to add and tweak multiple stereo effects to accomplish.

                    Yeah, the layout of the front panel makes a ton of sense once you realize how it's setup.

                    Input > Stomps > amps > loop effects > Output

                    It works just like a regular amp. It's way easier to use than I thought it would be.

                      It still looks like something from a 50's Sci-Fi flick to me. I know it's only the aesthetics, but I can't get past it. The Stage could be a contender, but with the FM9 coming in soon I don't see myself needing anything on that side of things for quite some time.

                        They're complimentary IMO. The Kemper is really, really good man. I think you'd love one.

                          Yeah it's honestly a completely different device, different workflow.

                            Yeah, I wasn't sure it would be for me either coming from an axe fx first gen, but I love it.

                            I'm a tweaker, so I would spend a lot of time on the axe fx adjusting amp settings, and never be happy. With this, I just pull up an amp, throw a green screamer in front of it and I'm set. The kpa is the only modeller I've had where I didn't need to Google tips on how to dial in a high gain patch.
