Axe Fx 2 vs Kemper
In this video we compare the tones of a Marshall JVM, Diezel VH4, Mesa Dual Rectofier, Peavey 5150 (6505 for the kemper), and an Engl Powerball in the Axe Fx 2 and the Kemper Profiling Amp
I used both stock and 3rd party kemper profiles when available.
I kept the cabs the same by using cabs from the Killer Tone Cabs Ultimate bundle.

All cabs for the kemper were loaded in the channel with Poulin Lecab 2 vst.
With a bit of EQ they can be made to sound fairly similar. I think both the Kemper and Axe Fx 2 sound really good. This will hopefully show some of the differences.
All sounds were made by reamping 2 separate DI tracks for L + R One left and one right.
All Audio has no post production except for mastering. Mastering method used in this video is here: http://metalhomerecording.com/category/mastering/
