I must agree with you, guys.
Even if I like and use digital technology since long time, I never heard the profile of something with 100% same sound of an original.
I'm not a Kemper fan, to be honest.

I can use a good audio interface with a PC and software and impulses and headphones to play home or study, no problem.
But I cannot say that I found emulations that have the same sound, tone and feel of original tube amps.
No way.

If you like the MP-1, buy a real MP-1.
Today, it's cheap enough.  :banana-jazz-smiley-emoticon:

Hey Max, couldn't agree more, if you can make the real sound with the real gadget/thing, why emulate.. :dunno: .  Now I do understand why some do this, (and if I couldn't have a MP-2 anymore I'd want to emulate it).

The real advantage with a Kemper is that you can profile tons of stuff...but you've to be smart and profile in a good way.
Anyway, I don't like the Kemper overall sound...even the version with power amp connected to a 4x12 cab.

Then...you can profile a lot of stuff....but, unless you're a pro working live and in the studio for many different people, the main question is: do you really need ALL that stuff???  :banana-jazz-smiley-emoticon:

At a small fraction of a Kemper's price, you can buy MP-1s, MP-2s, other non ADA preamps (like the good Rocktron Piranha), digital FX units and MIDI controllers...and have exactly THOSE tones.  :headbanger:

So...why emulate???  :dunno:

The whole emulation thing is an interesting topic!  I have an MP-2 at the heart of one rig, and am working on a second rig.  I have gotten very interested in the DV Mark Multiamp.  It's difficult to find one to play in person where I live, but nearly every YouTube clip I've seen makes it sound very good.  The appeal to me is that I could have a MIDI preamp, some decent basic effects, and a 500w (SS) power amp, all combined in a single lightweight 2-space rack unit.  I could downsize and simplify my rig considerably, assuming the tone was there, which I know is a big assumption.  They do have some serious players who endorse it, for what it's worth.  I'm not totally convinced I'd be happy with the sound as opposed to real tubes, but it is tempting!

So...why emulate???  :dunno:

Because a headless axe and the Masonic Toaster in a sports bag is a helluvalot easier to travel with..
Slapping cans on your head works well with it too - and keeps the screaming from the next hotel room at bay ;)
If you happen to be traveling, that is..


EDIT: Not that I'm a traveling axeman anyways, just that we've had numerous discussions about compact ergo guitars on sevenstring.org (search for Strandberg).
Also, while I do like the applications of the Kemper, I, like several commentators in here, feels that while it does capture the tone quite nice, it still just doesn't provide the real feel..

Speaking about traveling.. someone made a guitar with a sideways hinged neck. featuring a proverbial heavy-duty bearing, allowing to fold the neck down the side of the body. Talk about traveling gear.. :bow:

Mmnn.. is this still the ADA re-make thread? Tarnowsky must be slightly confused by now :lol:

This is a very good point, indeed...  :))
