KPA MIDI Control

This tool is being developed by Kerman Rodriguez from Everglades Audio and will be available as a free beta download soon.

Features

  • You can control almost 90% of the functions/parameters of your Kemper Profiler.
  • Automatic detection of the MIDI interfaces connected in your PC.
  • MIDI LEARN function, right-click each knob, and move the knob on you controller surface to progam it. Double right-click to erase the program.
  • Preset Manager: The preset manager included is just for saving your knob positions in the app, it does not load the positions/parameters in your kemper.
  • KPA RENAMER integration. With the button SEND near the preset manager, you can send the preset name to your Kemper, so there's no need for the KPA Renamer anymore!

Tag Editors

Kemper profiles include a useful set of meta data (tags) like name, author, creation date, comment etc. Meaningful tags are vital for keeping an overview especially with big collections. Unfortunately adding or changing tags on the Kemper requires a lot of time and knob twisting.

Fortunately there are software tools to speed up the tagging process:

KPA Tag Inspector

First was Laurent's KPA Tag Inspector.

KPA Simple Tag Inspector

Later Waraba created the KPA Simple Tag Inspector

KIPR Tag Editor

Third development is the KIPR Tag Editor trying to combine and improve both predecessors.

  • Supports Rig, Amplifier, Cabinet, Stack, Reverb, Delay, Stomp, Tonestack, Input and Output kipr-files.
  • Creates list of all profiles in a directory including all tags. (Could be used as basic librarian for your profile collection)
  • Batch function for editing multiple kipr-files at once.
  • Extracts and creates kpabackup files
  • Cross-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux) and free SW.
