    I just picked up the newest ones. I'm not a huge fan of the cabs in there, but the amps sound awesome. I've been using the 5150 with a few 3rd party IRs or direct to a real cab and they sound incredible.

    I've been a log time axe owner and just picked up the kemper and am thoroughly impressed.

    Thanks!
    I'm planning to use mine with IR's anyway but I wonder, what is it with the cabs that you don't like?

    Would it be dumb if I get a Orange Micro Dark and do this?

    Got mine in the mail today.
    Haven't messed with it yet, will in a few hours!
    My Axe FX XL+ is my soundcard so I'll be running this through input 2... should work well.
    I'm definitely getting the big Double Impact bundle tonight or tomorrow with the summer discount.
    I'll also be looking at some cool single amp profiles.
    The big hairy profiles site looks cool too and I want a JMP1 (deftones fan).
    What would be a good place to look for a Petrucci Mesa 2C++?
    I'd like a lot of options... all the channels and switches if possible.

    Someone posted a bunch of JP-2C profiles on the Rig Exchange not long ago.

    For paid JP-2C profiles I really like the Soundside ones: https://www.soundside.de/

    Choptones have a really good Mark IIC+ pack also.

    Thanks!
    Immediately after plugging in my LTD Iron Cross (with the EMG hetset) I notice that the high gain profiles is very high.
    Is it usual for higher gain pickups that the overall gain is quite high?
    How do you guys have your input settings set?
    Thanks!

    Clean sense can be used to avoid clipping in the clean presets right?
    But you have the distortion sense set to 0?
    The commercial presets I tried seemed to have better amounts of gain though.

    @Guitarjon
    Can I suggest the Josh Middleton pack?. Its 53 unique profiles. Clean and high gain profiles that he has worked hard on himself. Include loads of EQ work so they are mix ready (they really are).
    Anything from Marshalls, Oranges, to 5150's and XXX's. The set is the best high gain set Ive found to date and Ive bought ALOT of sets.
    Im actually using the same tone from the set that he is using live with Architects atm on their tour and it sounds absolutely unreal

    EDIT


    EDIT: 2 = Im a "djent"/Low tuned metal player and these will nail that perfectly aswell as the older school thrash/death metal too.[/MEDIA]

    I feel like an idiot for asking all these n00b questions but I have a few more:

    -How many user cabs can fit in the Kemper?
    -Does loading cabinets also have an effect on the amount of profiles you can store?
    -How do you remove user cabs?
    -I heard that the Kemper can store about 1600 profiles? 999 in the browser mode and 600 ish in performance mode?

    It can be quite hard to find answers.

    I've got around 700 cabinet models on my kemper right now, and I really only use 2 lol (I have to clean some out). cabinets do not affect the number of profiles. You can delete them just like amps/profiles, You can store around 1000 in browser mode.

    You adjust the clean sens so that your input LED doesn't go red on had picking.

    Really I can't describe. Just browsing amps and switching cabs I preferred the IRs from ownhammer vs the ones that came in the bundle.

    With my AXE I have a few of the cab packs from ML sound as well that I think are incredible. Just wasn't the same, wish I could use those through kemper.
