New Reverbs from Kemper OS 6 (Kemper effects demo)

A video by Have Guitar

The new Kemper Profiling Amp OS 6.0.0.14574 is out now and with that comes two new reverbs – the formant reverb and the Ionosphere reverb. This is good news, free updates keeps the Kemper unit alive and exiciting! Of course everyone is eagerly awaiting the release of OS 7 that should (hopefully) give us an editor and maybe even more goodies but for now this is still something nice for all of us!

The Formant “reverb filters to the Cirrus Reverb to give the reverb tail more color, and a very distinctive, choir-like sound. The main purpose of the Formant Reverb, however, is not to create a realistic choir sound, but to give it a certain character, making it sound more like a synthesizer or Mellotron. The formants also help the reverb cut through the mix, even at moderate volume levels”. Quote from the Kemper manual. There are some new parameters for the reverb that I really didn’t include in the video; Formant mix (balance the unfiltered reverb sound against the filtered sound), Formant wovel (Use this to morph continuously between the vowels U, O, A, E and I), Formant offset ( The “voice” character will become more feminine or childlike when turned to the right, and more masculine when turned to the left) and Formant peak (Controls the resonance, or q-factor).

The Ionesphere reverb “is based on the Cirrus Reverb and Formant Reverb. Featuring the finest pitch and shimmer reverbs, it builds on the concept and takes into brand new territory”. Again, quote from the manual. New parameters here are; Pitch mix (Mixes the unpitched original input signal with the two pitched versions), Pitch 1 & 2 (Sets the pitch offset of the two crystal pitch shifters, independently, in semitones), Pitch buildup (a feedback control in the reverb that feeds back the signal output of the two crystal pitch shifters back to their input) and Brass (In addition to the string-like effect of the crystal pitch shifters, the “Brass” parameter allows you to bring some nonlinearities to the reverb structure, giving it a brasher sound, more like that of a brass section).

In this video I’ll show you how to obtain the Kemper OS update and the new reverb presets and demo some of those presets. Hope you’ll like the video – if you like it support Haev Guitar with a subscription! As always a Big Thanks to you who already do so!!

West Coast Killer by Live Ready Sound (Kemper Profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Something heavy coming your way… it’s the West Coast Killer by Live Ready Sound, a fat pack of Kemper profiles that recreates the sound from a Fortin Cali amplifier! As far as I know this is the latest amp model from Fortin and it features a clean channel, two overdrive channels and loads of other features – see the link below for more information on the actual amplifier.

This pack is massive with the pre-sell pack containing 145 profiles, it has since then recieved two updates with an additional 37 profiles – both studio and direct’s. The Cali is described as an extremely versatile amplifier and that is reflected in the profiles of course. The tone is like a modded Marshall with a twist and very aggressive.

So, in this video I went all Ibanez now when I have two of them. I just figured the Ibanez Destroyer and the D-tuned RGDIM6FM would match this pack fine. And they did, if I may say so.

So much for the description, hope you’ll like the video! Subscriptions, likes and comments are welcome… Thank You, to you who subscribe – the support is much appreciated!

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here’s another Rig Showcase and in this video I’ll take a closer look at Gold Lion Studio’s Budda Superdrive 80! It’s a fine pack of Kemper profiles, the tone and the sustain of these profiles just rocks! So this video will go out on a non-scheduled time (that is not a Thursday) dur to the fact below – please read it!

This pack contains both direct and merged profiles, the total number is 58 – and the pack IS on sale right now! If you like what you hear please do support GLS by buying this pack! Right now Maxime Lajoie, the man behind Gold Lion Studio, got some bad news that his mother has been diagnosed with a terminal illness… any money he gets in will go directly to enable him to take a break and spend his limited time with his mother. ToneJunkie has already contributed by giving a days sale to Maxime and I will persoanlly buy a couple of packs to support him. Be a fellow human and do the same.

Cam Modded Collection by Borg Factory (Kemper profiles demo)

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar

Here’s a demo from another Kemper profile pack from Borg Factory – the Cam Modded Collection! This is a high gain pack with profiles taken from a couple of amplifiers that have been modded by a certain very well known amp modder. The amp’s are a Marshall 1976 JMP 100W that has the Ocean Mod, the other one is a Sovtek MIG-50 with the HG Jose mod. All studio profiles!

So, as said this is a pack of high gain stuff – well profiled from the original amps. Don’t take my word for it, listen to the demo and judge for yourself. Might add that while I am writing this the pack is on sale so if you like what you hear, go get it! The profilers are worth the support!

Thanks for watching Have Guitar, hope you liked this demo! A forever ongoing Thank You goes out to all of you who subscribe – your support is what makes it worth to continue making videos!

RGDIM6FM-CLF by Ibanez (unboxing video!)

Unboxing by Have Guitar

So, here an unboxing video of a guitar I never thought I would buy – the Ibanez RGDIM6FM-CLF! I’d say this is a real ‘shredder guitar’, a title I’d give any of the Ibanez RG-models. Nothing to say about them but they are just not my kind of guitars, eventhough I am sure they are all fine instruments.

Alright, so why did I buy this guitar then?! The answer is the Fishman Fluence Modern active humbuckers that comes as stock selection of this model. I’ve been glancing on these pickups for a loooong time now. Even been planning on getting a pair to install in my Schecter Custom E-1 but then I found out about this model, Thanks Dan!, and well… the rest is history as they. Bad case of GAS!

This the unboxing video but I have tossed in some sound demos as well. I can already say that this Ibanez guitar did not change my general opinion about Ibanez guitars, it’s great. Plays like butter, sounds like gold! But this is not the review video.

Just wanna say Thanks for watching my channel! If you feel like supporting me – hit that subscribe button! I am eternally grateful for every subscriber I get, so a Big Thanks goes out to all of You who are subscribing!

Calling Dr Love by KISS (Guitar & Bass lesson)

Let’s Play by Have Guitar!

And now it’s time for a new guitar lesson, and actually bass lesson as well! As it was requested in another video, this is my take of KISS Calling Dr. Love. In this video you’ll get the whole package; rhythm guitars, bass lines and the solo part of the that song! This song is not overly complicated but if you like it, it’s fun to play never the less!

Just wanna say that my version of Calling Dr. Love, that you can find at the end of this video is a very simple recording! For the drums I usually take a midi file and use those drums with a VST instrument. In this case the midi version I found was not very good – it even started with a small drum solo… The guitars are just recorded once, I have not doubled them or anything like that. Still it works as a “blueprint” to practising. There is a version out on Youtube with almost only bass and drums that you can use if you want to – see the link further down.

Other than that I do not think this song requires any more detailed presentation. You might not like KISS and that is fine by me. People have lots of prejudices regarding the show and the makeup to this very day, which is kinda weired as every artist nowadays seems to have larger stage shows than KISS had in the 70’s. It’s a good stompin’ and hard driving rock tune, that’s all there is to it.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar! If you liked this guitar lesson why don’t you subscribe to my channel? The support will be very appreciated. And as in every video, a Very Big Thank YOU to all you who do subscribe. Could not do it without you!

Tony Iommi (TI) Boost by Laney Black Country Customs (pedal test)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

Here’s a pedal I have been looking forward to trying out, the Laney Black Country Customs TI Boost – where TI stand for Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath! So, this is a not a regular dist box but rather what is called a clean boost. It’s kinda a replica of what Iommi used in the early days of Sabbath but with some extra controls for gain, treble and base.

Just wanna say that I have used a slightly different approach in how I recorded this video… very much just improvising and noodling around as I try different settings on the pedal, I do hope it comes out OK. The editing of this video was cursed somehow… whatever could go wrong, went wrong! To a degree where I almost went ahead re-recorded it all over again. Just saying. Any comments – especially constructive critisim – is very welcome, I’m still experimenting on how to provide a nice overview of a pedal.

Anyways, I do hope you’ll like the video! And as in every video’s description I would like to say Thanks to you who subscribe, your support is awesome!

Well, this time I am not that late with the months pack from ToneCrate – so here’s the pack of May 2019! This time around there are two featured guitarists – Jack Daniels from War of Ages and Scott Carstairs from Fallujah. I am not that familiar with the bands but the pack contains more Kemper profiles and they are all good so thanks to ToneCrate and these guys for bringing this out to us!

The pack contains everything from clean to full out metal style profiles, quite well balanced I should say. I have tried to show that in this video and well, hope I succeeded in that.
