First post and still looking over the forum so please don’t kill me if this has already been addressed. Please also don’t kill me for being a Kemper user - I’m looking forward to switching to the QC because of size, sound, ability to use multiple amps simultaneously, etc.
All that said, I put my order in for my QC with Sweetwater today (back ordered right now). But I have a MAJOR concern. The way I want to have my unit set up for live performances is pretty standard. I’d like to have each stomp in a bank (A-H), to be a completely different sound. Example, A would be a clean sound with maybe a Fender amp setup and effects, B would be a Marshall crunch and maybe a Friedman in stereo with effects, etc. I plan to use a stereo and dual amp setup in nearly every preset. But what I just read in the manual makes me think I’m going to be disappointed because it says that in Preset Mode, there WILL be a gap when switching presets.
IMO, this is a MAJOR oversight and flaw for anyone who wants to use this in a live situation in the manner I mentioned above (which is a VERY common layout for floor processors). Why on earth would anyone be okay with having an audible gap in sound when switching between presets in a live show?
Can anyone speak to this audio dropout and tell me how long (in seconds or ms) it is? Or, is there another way to achieve the layout above?
Also, if I’m in Preset Mode and I have delay tails and reverb on a preset, along with the audio dropout, am I correct that the tails of those effects are also going to cut off in Preset Mode? The Kemper allows you to carry the tails over while in Performance mode, and there is no noticeable audio dropout when switching in Performance mode (because it was made with live performances in mind).
I’m hoping I’m just misunderstanding the dropout because everything else I’ve read about this unit seems awesome.
I appreciate any insight you can provide!
