Interesting, so you prefer to use the cab emulator as opposed to a real cab?
If you want it to.
As do many. That way, you can have many different cabs and speakers to choose from (not just one or two).
But, lets clear something up. On the Kemper, although it can use IRs, most of the CABs used were actually profiled via the kemper. Now, what is approximated is which part of the signal profiled is amp, and which is speaker/cab, as the profiling takes the whole signal, from amp input to speaker output.
When one profiles their own amps, that is what you are getting, the amp and your cab. So, why disable the cab portion, then run it through the same cab? What you want is a FRFR solution to accurately reproduce what was profiled.
K, that said, there are DI profiles, that profile just the amp itself, including the output section's response, just not the CAB or speaker. These are a little hard for the average guy to capture, as it takes a little more involved setup for some amps. But then, MPOSY profile sellers create both kinds in their amp package(s). These are designed specifically, to use with actual guitar CABs.
ALL of that, and really IRs as well like Axe and Helix use, are not 'cab emulators'. That is they aren't if your comparing them to what many tube amps add, an emulated out, which is nothing more than an EQ filter.
Interesting! So really, for a live situation the best bet would be in ears with the direct out from the kemper going to the front of house it sounds like. Unless of course you like moving air, then you want the FRFRs for that?
if stage volume is an issue than yes, in ear is pretty sweet.
If you like using feedback and such, than a FRFR speaker works well for that... I love that I can get feedback at my desk at conversation volumes
either way live, send your signal to the FOH and be heard....
Two of our band have moved to IEM's. I think as the frontman, I'd really hate them. Part of the act is the schtick I engage in with the audience. No hearing what's being yelled at the back of the room with your ears plugged up.
