Alrighty. The band I play in has a keyboardist anyway, I guess he can do the few KP parts. It's not much, just few bits of wonky noises in few songs and a full-on crazy KP solo(totally didn't get the idea from kaoss jam/solo) in one of them.

Sorry.

What would be useful is if they had #kemper patch downloads for each song...

It's certainly more useful than the built in fuzz factory, as you can use it with whammy, cubase or similar, etc.

I did have a mini XY pad installed into an existing guitar a few years back (remember that?) but I can't remember how much it cost. It was already routed for a fuzz factory though, so it might have been more expensive otherwise. I generally wouldn't recommend doing that way though.

I wank around with DJ equipment somewhat regularly, so the XY pad is fun on the guitar, but don't expect to win any tone awards or anything. I've gotten it so the distortion from the KP is minimal, but it'll still require some fiddling with. I certainly am not going to take it out of my guitar, but I'm not going to rig the MIDI cable into the guitar for a stage setup unless I have good reason. But agreed, it is more useful than the fuzz.

Anyone record guitar video via GoPro? My target has an open box Hero4 Session for like $150 +/- that's intriguing me. Thoughts/experiences?

Exactly. It's something I've never been gutted about before.

That depends how you're using it really. It doesn't have the greatest sound quality, but the small size is obviously a plus.

If I put 12s or 13s on a guitar that's usually got 10s on it, will the nut slots be too big if I go back to the lighter guage? Guessing the thicker strings will wear the slots away a bit.

Not necessarily. If you make sure the nut slots are cut with files that have a rounded bottom then the thinner strings should still be fine. If you are going to put 12's or 13's on a guitar I would get the nut slots widened though. The strings will most likely bind and go out of tune at the drop of a hat if not.

And no I wouldn't worry about busting your nut @nerd_herd. A bigger problem would be keeping it in tune with the heavier strings.... that dreaded "ping" noise

I think the main issue switching back would be that ringing behind the nut issue. It's this weird sort of resonance that usually happens on the high E and B strings if they're not snug.

Hoped I'd get away without modding the nut at all. Don't have any of the proper files, so might try the sandpaper round a slightly thinner string thing (and probably ruin the nut in the process).

I'm more worried about the headstock snapping off with the higher tension. Do heavier strings always have that dreaded ping noise? I could always keep using 10s on it, but they're a bit too loose for C standard. But then it can be tuned to E fairly easily too if when I change my mind.

I wouldn't recommend that. And it's nothing to do with the heavier strings - it's the nut slot not being wide enough for the string.

I'd say the tension is only slightly higher than usual, at least if you're tuned to C. I remember on that BB1200, when I switched from E with 10s to C with 13s, the neck didn't really move that much.

I probably wouldn't put it in E if it has anything heavier than 11s on.

I wouldn't worry about the headstock at all. It's weird, the guitars I had professionally set up (one of which was plek'd) for that tuning don't stay in tune as well as JH's old one, even with the headstock repair. I swear that one is in tune every time I pick it up.... guess it's a bit 'seasoned' at this point...

Never heard this before. Sounds like the verses were recorded on the middle pickup position.
