"After watching the video, listening to the songs and the previously downloaded presets, we scrapped the community sourced presets and started in on building a user library of Blocks in Axe Edit that the client could pull from in future to build new presets as set list choices demanded.

"The ability to organize patches into songs and setlists via the laptop is a game changer and with the MastermindGT editor coupled with the Kemper Rig Manager now, Rob can program the rig in a greenroom, a coffee shop, or on a flight.

The NPRN & Sysex capabilities of the MasterMind GT make it a natural companion to the Kemper Profiler, allowing the use to fully take control of the Kemper's thousands of parameters in real time ("Instant Access") control."
