Boost my solo? The sound guy is sleeping! 

We've all been there. You're about to play your favorite solo from your favorite song, the crowd is pumping, the lights are shining, you're ready to shred! One problem though. The sound guy is either talking to some chick, at the bar, already went to the bar during your last solo and is now drinking, or just plain not paying attention. Your blazing lead gets lost in the mix.

Never rely on the sound guy again! Use your Kemper to give you that volume boost you need to soar above the other instruments. What's an easy way to accomplish this? This is a method I've used for years, even before I owned a Kemper, but it's incredibly simple to implement with the KPA.

1. Browse to the rig you use for your leads. Sometimes I have a dedicated rig for that but I also will use my rhythm rig for certain songs.
2. Hold down the MOD or X soft button until the screen changes.
3. Using the Type knob, scroll to "Pure Booster".
4. Set the volume accordingly. I usually go anywhere from +2.5 to +3.5 depending on value.
5. Press the Exit button and save the rig. I will sometimes save the rig with the MOD or X turned off so that I can engage the boost when need be.
6. If you own the Kemper Remote, program the MOD or X button to one of the effects switches (or just use an entire rig with the MOD or X on for your leads. I'll usually have a rig saved with the boost on and a longer delay time. If I need a short delay, I'll just use my rhythm rig).
7. Shred!

Until next time...


How do I change the display on the Kemper Remote?? 

Most Kemper Remote owners may know this neat little feature already, but I've come across a few who don't. Did you know that while in performance mode, you can change what your remote displays? Here's how to do it:

1. Power up your profiler with the remote plugged into it.
2. Turn to performance mode and wait for the remote screen to fully load.
3. On the profiler, click the system button and navigate to page 4.
4. In the upper left corner of the profiler screen, make sure to check "Display Layout B"
5. Your display on the remote should look like the photo below, making it easier to view all amps in the performance, as well as the stomps and fx slots in the rig.

Till next time...
