Windows 10 Creators Update problems and issues

So, when I went out to the studio today to try some new profiles with my Kemper, a most unwelcome message rolled up on my screen. Something like:

“Hi. Your PC is being improved be patient until the update is done”.

Reboot.

Havoc.

The looks of Windows 10 was changed. My classic shell start menu had to be reconfigured. The systray clock was black. When I started Reaper my VST plugins told me the computer id had changed and they wanted me to re-register the computer. What the heck?! And if that was bad the worst part was that all my IN’s on my Focusrite Saffire 6i6 (2nd gen) was dead. None of them worked and first I thought I had accidently pressed some button on the Kemper but, it worked fine when I hooked it up directly to my active studio monitors.

Windows 10 Creators Update. We must learn to kill it on sight or so it seems at least. So if you’re unlucky like me, fret nu – Have Guitar have the solution for you – roll back that blasphemy!

 

Added a video that will show you (text description below the video):

Here’s how-to:

Start Menu, Next then click on Settings (PC settings if you run classic shell like me)
Click on Update & Security
In the left menu, click on Recovery
Click on Go back to an earlier build (note: seems to have 10 days to do this so don’t wait!)
Then just follow the on screen instructions and don’t take any heed to the warnings that windows pops up!

Well, there you have it. Works also if you get some other updates that ruins things fot you. I hope someone else will have use for this!

Friday Fun – Unboxing the Neunaber Immerse

Have Guitar! presents a fast n fun Friday video – the unboxing of a Neunaber Immerse. Yes, this is just me babbling away for 10 minutes while unboxing the stomp box – if you think that sounds boring then go and pick another video. (But make sure you pick one from Have Guitar, OK?!)

The test / review will come later, I need some time to test out and get to know this reverb pedal before I do a video about it.

Thanks for watching Have Guitar, hope you like it! Please do support me by subscribing or a leprechaun gets crushed under a tree somewhere. Thanks to all of you subscribing already, you’re leprechaun heros all of you!

Kemper Bass Rig Showcase – Live Ready Sounds Traced Bass ELL Starter Pack

Here’s a premiere one for you – the First Kemper Bass Rig Showcase featuring the Traced Bass ELL Starter Pack from Live Ready Sounds. In this pack you will get 28 profiles taken from a Trace Eliot GP7 and according to Live Ready Sounds, more are coming.

This pack contains both Studio and Direct profiles and gives you many different settings from the amp. The nice thing about the Direct profiles is that they are very usable as they, they actually sound great even without a cab added. The rig pack captures that powerful sound from the Trace Eliot amp really well and it’s well worth checking out!

If you like this video please do support Have Guitar! by subscribing to the channel. I bring out one new video every week on Thursdays and when I can, I churn out more than that! A very special big thanks to all you who already do sub!

Bases used in this video:

Rig Manager 2.1.18 (Beta) is available!

Yes, some fixes in the new beta of Rig Manager, you can them below… I’m usually a bit more careful about new betas for the Kemper OS than what I am for these Rig Manager betas. Don’t know why though. Anyways, I have updated my Rig Manager and so far (=playing for about 2 hours) no problems.

Oh, that’s right I think you need to update to beta versions through Rig Manager (well, I can’t see the beta on Kempers webpage!) so if you haven’t:

Goto File->Preferences and check the box titled “Include Beta Test Releases”. Then click OK to close that window and go to “Help” and choose “Check for Software Updates”. Note: even if I’m careless I do not take responsibility for your installation of beta versions. And that was my disclaimer.

Features and changes in this version (2.1.18):

– Fixed: wrong author name when creating new performance
– Fixed: sync indicator shown forever after sorting rig list (Windows only)
– Fixed: wrong Tempo Enable display when selecting multiple performances (Windows only)
– Improved: handling of blocked Profiler communication (macOS 10.13 High Sierra only)
– Improved: error handling in automatic software update

Line 6 Helix Native – All the… no, wait… some of the Presets!

The one year jubilee continues with more bonus videos, here’s the last Helix Native video I managed to squeeze in before the trial ended!

Here’s a crazy video series where Have Guitar demo’s ALL the presets … no, wait… is there another folder? Lets see… Factory2. Oh, 128 additional presets. Curtains down!

Yes, so I missed out on that. It was only an additional 128 presets of the Line 6 Helix Native. No big deal. Besides I had less than two days left on the trial version when I discovered that! So, this is the last video I could do – my fav’s from the Factory2 folder. Sorry for this miss from my side…

So a software version of the Line Helix? Yeah, isn’t that great! What if we could have at least a sound editor like this for the Kemper? Dream on… but meanwhile you can have listen to the Helix at least. And if you like what you hear you can try it out too! Just download it and register at Line 6 and you’ll get a 15-day-trial with the Helix Native.

Hope you liked the video! If so please support Have Guitars effort to bring fun guitar-related videos to quaff boredom by subscribing to channel. A big thanks as always to all of you already subscribing!

Line 6 Helix Native – All the presets (4 of … 5!)

Here’s a crazy (bonus!) video series where Have Guitar demo’s ALL the Factory1 presets from in Line 6’s new VST plugin, Helix Native. This is part four of four, containing presets 97 – 128 of Helix Natives Factory1 presets.

So… a correction needs to be done. First I thought there was 32 presets, “Makes a nice video” was my first thought. Then I realized it was 32 x 4 = 128 presets. Pfew… but I’ll make that happend anyways. And then – I noticed there was another folder – Factory2 – with 128 more preset. 256 presets all in all. And that I discovered two days before the trial version runs out!! So I had to compromise, there will be a fifth video with 32 demos from Factory2. Sorry but that’s the best I could come up with due to the time limit.

So a software version of the Line Helix? Yeah, isn’t that great! What if we could have at least a sound editor like this for the Kemper? Dream on… but meanwhile you can have listen to the Helix at least. And if you like what you hear you can try it out too! Just download it and register at Line 6 and you’ll get a 15-day-trial with the Helix Native.

Kemper Rig Showcase: ReampZones Orange AD140

One year and one day since the first Kemper Rig Showcase appeared at Have Guitar! – let’s throw in a bonus Sunday video on that! This is ReampZone’s Orange AD140 – a very capable rig pack that covers what you need from clean to crunch sounds. It’s more in the style of rock, blues and similar and to add to that it’s modded as well, making it more unique than anything else…

The AD140 is no longer in stock, I think they stopped the production in 2006 (correct me if I’m wrong!) so if you want a beast like this you need to search for a used one. Or you could get a Kemper Profiling Amp and buy this pack.

Hope you liked the video! If so please support Have Guitars effort to bring fun guitar-related videos to quaff boredom by subscribing to the channel. A big thanks as always to all of you already subscribing, much appriciated!

Kemper Jubilee Rig Showcase: Top 5 profile packs from the last year!

Have Guitar is honored to give you the One Year Jubilee Kemper Rig Showcase – I can’t belive a whole year has passed since the first Kemper Rig Showcase was published here at Have Guitar!

Short history of Have Guitar!:
In 2007 I noticed the increasing trend of Youtube and as I’ve always been fascinated by any terms of expressing your self through video I felt I wanted to start something too. Took until early 2009 before I actually did start the channel and uploaded my first video (Greco vs Gibson) but at that time I didn’t really have access to what it took to make a good video. Still content is king so that video took off with a quite impressive amount of views.

So job, small kids and other stuff took its toll and I didn’t have much time for making videos… FF to spring 2016, I had moved to a place where I could have a studio and I wanted to get back on track with playing the guitar again, something I hadn’t really been doing much for a way too long time. Then I bought my Gibson SG on a sale and that somehow made me think about the Youtube channel again – Have Guitar! was restarted even if the videos wasn’t exactly pouring out.

So sitting around with lots of profiles packs for my Kemper I thought to myself, that could be the starting base for the channel and then the 9th of September 2016 I published the first Kemper Rig Showcase, ReampZones Hughes & Kettner Triology. Still was a bit randomness to when I published videos for a few months and I think it was around January 2017 that I decided to go for the “a new video every thursday” concept.

So far, so good – been able to keep that up for nine months now – I have learnt a lot during these months and I’m pretty sure I will learn a whole lot more as time flies past. And I must say I succeeded in what my main motivation was – to inspire myself to play more guitar (after that too long break) and the cherry on the cake is that people have been watching the videos and given positive feedback and subscribed to my channel!

So with this video I just wanna say thanks for the likes, comments, views and subscribtions! Here you will get the Top 5 profile packs that has been showcased at Have Guitar for the past year. They are shown in no particular order so number one isn’t higher rated than number five, it’s just my favourite five rig packs tested out in my videos.

And HEY! If don’t wanna spoil which profilers are featured in the video you shouldn’t read any further until you have watched the video… because there’s links to their websites a bit down here so stop reading now and watch the video! 🙂

Thanks for all the support, I hope you will like this video and there’s more to come! As always, if you don’t subscribe please do so to support Have Guitar! – every individual counts and you will have my eternal gratitude, something that all of you who already do subscribe already have – Thanks! 🙂

Kemper Rig Showcase: ReampZones Marshall JCM900 MKIII 2100

Have Guitar is stoked to present a new Kemper Rig Showcase – ReampZones Marshall JCM900 MKIII 2100! Sure sounds like a Marshall to me and I mean that in a good way!

The first Marshall JCM900 was released early 1990, designed for higher gain and less noise. When Guitar World tested the new Marshall amps they concluded it as “Marshall has once again successfully reinvented itself”. Me personally think ReampZone has done a good job indeed capturing that Marshall vibe in these profiles, from the powerful clean tone to the screamin’ high gain notes. Watch the video for a cut of you’ll get!

Hope you like this Rig Showcase from Have Guitar! and if you please do subscribe to the channel to give me some support! The goal is to release a new video every Thursday and when there’s time more than that… because playing guitar is fun! Thanks for watching my videos and a very big Thank You to all of you who are subscribing!!
