The quality provided by a Kemper is awesome. Your guitar tone is great!! Now it's a mater of taste. In my opinion I would work a bit the EQ, there are some mid frequencies that could be lowered a bit (around 800 and 1.5 KHz) but this can be a matter of taste. Regarding the mix, I'm not at my studio now but I can note that the drums need some work. The snare is too over-compressed and ends up sounding weak. The toms has a low resonance that isn't nice to my ears and it surely makes the lower frequencies of your mix a bit diffuse. The bass need more definition, adding some dBs frequencies around 1.5 KHz and 2.5 KHz could really help.

What about some headphones? I think that you should try lowering frequencies around 80 Hz 120 hz, and increase high frequencies to give more definition to it.

Nice!!! Your recording and playing skills have really come along quite a bit, especially recently!! Well done!!! Also congrats on your recent endorsements!!! It really does take a willingness to approach various vendors and take a LOT of rejection sometimes. But that's life and the biz in general? You just gotta fight through it smile.gif

As gabe mentioned, I'd focus in on the EQ 1-2k and perhaps use a parametric eq to help you sweep through that range and hear what's happening. Also, are you using a "Low Shelf"? If not, it's worth a try, cutting the frequencies below a certain level on guitar can allow a mix to breathe more since the guitar isn't fighting for sonic space that the bass/kick drum wants.
