    Pretty sure we're limited for 2 buttons if we want to use the footswitch input as you can only set up for 2 settings (we need an update for more than 2 haha)

    On the video they showed this one: Boss FS-6 Dual Footswitch

    If there's something else that has those same specs as that boss it should work

    Whatever you get would have to have a stereo jack and momentary switches. Seems like for £25 your best bet is to just make one. I imagine the tip goes to one switch, the ring to the other switch and the sleeve is ground.
    The only other option is a midi controller, like the FCB; which is cheap and is simple to program even without an uno chip.

    might just get a used Boss FS6 then.

    ALSO!!

    Does anyone have any bass profiles that will nail this amazing Nolly tone? -

    What's up my dudes. I made a video on some of my favorite Kemper profiles so far. I have to say, the new Brian Hood STL pack makes me wonder if I'll ever use another. The 5150 block letter tone is absolutely perfect in every way

    What doesn't the Behringer FCB1010 do without the Uno 4 Kemper chip? To what extent is it usable as it is?
    So far I was able to make out you can't use the tuner in live situation, and some characters don't show on the LCD, is that all? I could live with that

    How does the Brian Hood pack compare to their free profile pack?

    I don't have high hopes.

    After trying the free pack, out of sheer curiosity and stubbornness I thought no way would a paid pack be as bad. So I gave the Protone 5150 III pack a try. I was wrong. With the exception of 2 clean profiles, the pack is not good.

    It’s totally usable without a chip. I used this video as a reference, there’s a part 2 and a Q and A vid on his channel as well

    I haven't tried their free pack, but I will say I enjoy the hood pack so far (albeit it's still pretty new so I haven't been able to give it a real honest judgement on it so far, love the first profile I highlighted in the video though).

    Yeah, even the base Behringer firmware will work with the Kemper, but the UnO and UnO4Kemper firmwares give you more fine-grained control over things. I ended up installing the regular UnO firmware in my FCB, on the theory that I might want to use it with something other than the Kemper some day. (It's not like it spent the previous ~12 years controlling a H&K Triamp with an effects processor in the loop or anything...) The stompbox mode with the UnO firmware is quite nice for use with the Kemper.

    A few months ago, I was asking for headphone recs for the Kemper. I don't feel like digging to find the exact post, but somebody suggested the AKG K240s. Whoever that was, thanks a million. I got them a week ago, and they rock tits. Anybody else who needs some quality headphones on a budget should definitely look at these. Well worth the $70.

    Hey guys,

    I created a quick tutorial on loading IR's into your Kemper.
    Most of you probably already know how to do this but I hope this helps for people who are new to this.

    anyone have any great, twangy/snarly, Randall Thrasher profiles?

    All the great studios making bundles, dont seem to have any that I can find. Anyone have any?.
    (im aware there is a few on the Rig Exchange but they appear to mostly be XLR out or Torpedo live profiled)
