    From my experience you need to use post eq differently with the Kemper than how you would treat tube amp tracks to get the same results. You can get the same end result, you just need to approach it a bit differently, ie. not cut as much low end and not boost the highs/presence as much. If you boost the presence like you'd with a tube amp track it can get pretty piercing and thin fast. My 2c

                I find it gets shrill very fast too. Usually i always boost 5000hz and up but the kemper need half of what i would normally do, even with my own profiles.

                    I generally go hard with the high and low cut leaving loads of room for bass guitar and drums and highs for the vocals.



                    I found with modellers that high and low cut ended me with a horrible fuzz mess that still remained strong in a mix. Couldn't stand it.

                        Btw I'm not a pro obviously. I just do things that sound good to my ears.



                        I thought most of the stock profiles were great. They sounded and felt like real amps. Cannot wait to try the better profiles though!

                            If you profile your own or find some out of the plethora out there, you will get along with it just fine. there are some very modeller sounding profiles and i question there origin, but i guess thats is just another option this thing has

                                Sounds excellent man, clear tight and cutting. Good job.
                                <div class="signaturecontainer">&quot;is this tone obtainable using the HD500 or Axe Fx? Overall, for convenience and volume control, should I buy the Axe Fx over actual tube amps? I don't plan on playing loud; just playing at home and recording on my Mac. Thanks man, you are awesome!<br />
