Thank you, jdm.
You may have sacrificed some authenticity with the MV fully-cranked and the normal channel at 12 o’clock ’cause IIRC, with the channel’s level at noon or higher, you’d probably have to set the master at around 4/10 or less due to the Kemper’s difficulty in separating the two distortion behaviours over the full dynamic range. It’s mentioned in the manual.
That said, if it sounds good, it is good. Thanks again man.
