Product Description

Details

The Kemper Profiler enables you to do what generations of guitar players have been waiting for: to capture the soul of all your amps (and so many more) inside a lunchbox-sized amplifier.

So, how does it work? We use cutting edge technology to capture the sonic DNA of virtually any guitar amp. The resulting profiles are as living, vivid and dynamic as the original amps.

Imagine you’ve used some sweet-sounding, well-maintained vintage tube amps in your last studio session: With the Kemper Profiler, there’s no need to leave those sounds behind anymore. Simply create your own profiles from these amps and take them with you to use anywhere you like. Variations with alternative amp settings can be created and even the cabinet of a profiled combo amp can be exchanged at any time. Dozens of pro-grade onboard effects and stomp boxes can be used to spice up the profiles. We even give you profiles of many exceptional signature amps.

Any amp. Any time. Anywhere. We mean it.

The Amplifier Section
The Amplifier section is the heart of the Kemper Profiler. The sound of the amplifier is based on the profile loaded into the rig. A great selection of intuitive and powerful macro parameters empowers you to perform modifications which are impossible with an traditional hardware amplifier.
Many things become possible from changing the age of the virtual hardware to the response to your play. You gain direct access to tube settings, such as the tube symmetry.

The Equalizer Section
The Kemper Profiler is equipped with a traditional bass / mid / treble / presence equalizer similar to what you already know and love from many amp heads. We found that many equalizers used in the tone stack section of more or less famous amplifiers lack of grip and blur your sound in an unnecessary fashion.
That's why we've decided to go with our own, original design which is based on a traditional tone stack but delivers what you expect from a modern pro-grade equalizer.

The Cabinet Section
The Kemper Profiler captures the cabinet as a part of a profile. Thanks to digital alchemy we can distinguish in between the cabinet and the amp head within a profile and therefore enable you to mix and match both in which ever way you like. Imagine you can exchange cabinets freely in between amps, even though those amps were combo amps before. You can even warp cabinets from "tiny as a cigarette box" to "larger than life" with one parameter.

The Stomp Boxes
The Kemper Profiler offers 4 independent stomp effects slots which can host a full arsenal of stomp box effects including painstakingly modeled famous overdrive and distortion stomp boxes, compressor, reverb, several delays, and a beautiful rotary speaker emulation.
We’ve also created accurate models of classic retro modulation effects such as a variety of chorus, phaser and flanger pedals. All stomp effects can be edited and copied conveniently between presets. And for your overview and convenience, we use color coded LEDs indicating which type of stomp has been used per slot.

Looping In and Out External Effects
The Kemper Profiler includes an external effects loop which you can patch in anywhere among the virtual stomps boxes. The location and other details can be stored per rig. The monitor outputs also can serve as a pure analog buffer amp for re-amping.

The Master Section
The master effects section features reverb, delay and additional slots for stomp boxes and studio effects to refine your amplifier’s tone. The six knobs on the front panel offer convenient access to the most important settings. The reverb section features a dense and lively reverb algorithm which won’t mask the original signal. The delay section features several tape and stereo delay algorithms which can be synched to MIDI clock.

The Input Stage
Thanks to a Hi-Z input optimized for passive guitar pickups, the Kemper Profiler offers a crystal clear signal path. We use only professional-grade analogue components to ensure that your guitar tone remains unchanged.
We include a single-knob smart noise gate on the front panel that is completely transparent. It’s faster than any other noise gate we have experienced and doesn’t need an adjustment of the release time. Damping a string results in immediate silence.

The Output Stage
The Kemper Profiler features two independent main outputs which can be used in multiple ways. The mains feature a balanced studio level connection and a parallel pair or TSRs. The monitor output optionally provides the amplifier’s sound without the cabinet. This proves beneficial for musicians with an existing power amp / cabinet on stage.

Ground Lifts
In order to seamlessly integrate the Kemper Profiler into an existing studio and live sound environment, we’ve included several ground lifts to allow you to easily deal with possible hum and grounding problems.

The Kemper Profiler comes with two play modes. The “Browser” mode assists you in quickly finding the right rig thanks to its sophisticated sort and search functions. The “Perform” mode arranges your rigs according to the set list you’ll play tonight. Perform mode focuses on overview - think of a Performance like a lead sheet which allows you to collect, order and name all the rigs you need for a certain song.
In both modes the bright LCD display gives you a full overview of the chosen rig. The six rotary encoders below the display become controllers for the gain, EQ, and master volume.

The Kemper Profiler makes it easy for you to share your personal library with other users. Rigs and Profiles are small files which include your name and numerous other details which can be used to filter and search for a specific rig. You can then exchange profiles either through the Rig Exchange on this website, emails, or other online forums and services. The Profiler is equipped with intuitive search and filter functions allowing you to maintain a great overview of the growing library of custom profiles and rigs from around the globe.
