The KVR community is made up of musicians, live performers, recording engineers, music products developers - Among us we span all music genres, and play all the instruments in the symphony, as well as of course, the computer. So it figures that KVR should be one of the best resources available for anyone trying to make a decision about which products to buy and to use.

There are two kinds of product reviews that I find useful. There are the professional reviews done by people that review products for a living. These are the most useful for specifications and comparisons with other products in the marketplace. However, with professional reviewers, you have to consider that it can be the time of month or week or day that could determine the frame of mind for the reviewer. Also, unless they adopt the product, it goes back to the manufacturer when the review is done. They generally don't take it to a gig.

Kemper Back Panel


I think these guys really did their homework, both in the specification process and the implementation. It's not cheap, but when I factored in the value of all the things it does, it was a bargain for me.

OK I've offered my opinions for judgement, like many in our community. Let's continue to grow KVR as the #1 resource for information about technology products.
