Oh boy I just changed my routing a little. Went from Kemper > Interface > Monitors to just Kemper > Monitors and it's made quite the difference. Always wondered why it never sounded quite as good as the first time I tried it or through a cab. Never thought my pre-amps or the A/D conversion would do that much.
Honestly it could have been just the volume difference by going direct. Gonna have to try again when I get some more XLRs but right now in my head I think it did sound better, maybe a touch more range or something.
My Kemper is connected direct to the monitors by the 1/4" sockets. I very recently started using spdif to reamp but that's mainly for the convenience as I can connect everything and swap between playing and reamping with a couple of button pushes. All sounds good to me.
Mine is only connected to my Daw when recording as my laptop doesn't live in the music room. Therefore it's usually set up the same as with my band, so guitar to Kemper input etc. The alternate input I use for the stereo loop. If I didn't use spdif, I'd have to swap a few cables round.
The Rig manager / editor version 3 is out as a beta version. You need to update your OS to 7.16 to use the editor. but it appears to work very well.
It appears that all of the settings are available, and easy to get at and edit (sure, the actual knobs are there on the front of the device, but you know what I mean). and It looks like all of the settings changes are transferred instantly to the profiler (and clearly labelled 'store' button is easy to find). Yippee !
The editor is EPIC. The ability to drag and drop elements from a profile into your library...... then drop them into a new profile......in seconds.........EPIC. Not having to squint at the wee screen.... priceless.
