    If your asking me, no I don't have the foot controller. I am going to get one probably this week. I just got the kemper last week and wanted to try it live first. My son liked my tone so much last night....now he wants a kemper...lol. he has been using a couple 100 watt jcm 800s with a line 6 head for effects. But he has to crank the jcm 800s so loud. He will be gettinga kemper in the next month or two..lol

    Bitch, I ain't rich. So if I wanted a small setup that would sit beside a computer desk what would you get? Powered Kemper with a 1x12? Which 1x12?

    I do have a Mesa Mark IV 1x12 combo with a Black Shadow speaker in it, I wonder if I could unplug the speaker and run it into the Kemper?

    That's a FRFR speaker right? Seems like what I'm reading here is that the Kemnper sounds best powered through a real speaker cab?

    How are you running yours?

    In my opinion you need both. FRFR and a real cab. I have a 412 and nice studio monitors for my setup.

    everywhere you wanna be.


    from what I can tell, the kemper helps you sound
    like everybody else, but the AX helps you find your OWN sound.

    there are also amp sim's on the FX too.

    I have an FX8 that is my primary effects rig, love it. With amp sims though simple is better for me. I don't like tweaking.

    Nope. The Kemper helps you sound like you're playing through the actual amp.
