Overview

The Kemper Profiler was designed to be a complete solution for all your guitar playing needs. You can use it just like you would a regular amplifier, or you could use it as a multi-effects unit, or even as the front end for your guitar-based studio.

Nearly all digital guitar amps available today offer the same features-simulations of classic and modern guitar amplifiers and stomp boxes, usually with some digital and studio effects thrown in for good measure. The Kemper Profiler doesn't simply include digital versions of guitar amps, but lets you make a "profile" of your own guitar amp to use inside the Kemper Profiler. You can also load profiles of other guitarists' amps into your Kemper Profiler.

If you want a more technical description: the Kemper Profiler analyzes the sonic characteristics of a reference amplifier. This process allows it to faithfully recreate the characteristic sound of virtually any guitar amp, and adopt the behavior and interaction of the components of the analyzed amplifier.

The Kemper Profiler doesn't just capture the sound of your guitar amp alone; you can also capture the sound of the cab and the mics (including the mic distance and angle). You can store 1000 amp profiles in total and it comes with 30 different stompbox effects as well as a master effects section with master delay and reverb.

FEATURES

  • Play through a standard cab with CabDriver mode
  • Feed a full-range monitor system
  • Store 1000 amp profiles
  • 30 stompbox effects
  • Master delay and reverb

Comments about Kemper Profiler Rack Rackmount Guitar Amplifier:

Ive been a tube amp guy my whole guitar playing career, but was getting sick of the constant search for stompboxes/pedalboards and taking 2 amps to a show if I wanted crystal clear cleans and super heavy distortion. My friend recommeended me the Kemper, and while I was skeptical at first, when I went online and downloaded some of the tones people have profiled, the thing just blew me away! I click one button I have a Diezel VH4 for rhythm, another I have an EVH 5150 III for leads, and roland JC120 for cleans, and they all sound like the real amp. The effects are super easy to load in, but you do have to read the manual, and even with that, a week of playing with it before going out to gig is recommended. Im still learning things it can do. My favorite part is that its super lightweight, I can go from SRV to Pantera with a click of a button, and I just plug in 3 cables and Im good to go. It used to take me about 10 minutes to hook all my rig up on stage, now Im done in about 2 minutes. I do run a 4X12 cab with an ISP Stealth power amp to get that "amp feel" on the stage, but not one sound guy has needed to mic me up, everything is direct out on the back of the amp, and I get tons of compliments from sound engineers saying its the easiest tone theyve ever had to dial in, and that it was a great sound right out of the board. One sound guy did mic me and do a DI as well, he didnt think it would sound too good. I asked him after the show, he said that he shut the mic off and just ran the DI because it sounded better!

Also do some recording, and I love that I can record anywhere any time now thanks to this device. No mic'ing needed to get a killer sound. I have recorded a handful of songs with it, the covers using an amp similar to the one used by the artist and my original stuff and it all sounds great.

I could keep going on and on about this thing, but the bottom line is that its the best investment I've ever made in my sound. (I just picked up a second one for band number 2!)

Thus Far Impressed

Comments about Kemper Profiler Rack Rackmount Guitar Amplifier:

About a month ago I made the jump to the profiling world. I am impressed with the sounds I am getting. With a power amp and a 2x12 cab I am finding that I am getting the "air flow" that I am used to with traditional tube amps. I have found some great profiles and I am now finally over the figuring it out stage and to the playing it like an amp stage.

    Comments about Kemper Profiler Rack Rackmount Guitar Amplifier:

    So, I took the plunge and bought a Kemper. I had the struggle on whether to get the powered or un-powered version. I had the struggle of whether to get the remote or not. I went with the unpowered version. First, because it was cheaper, second...I have a PA at home, and third...I going Kemper, I wanted to move away from playing through a cabinet. I am happy with choosing the un-powered Kemper. It sounded amazing during my first two gigs and has sounded better gradually each time I turn it on. It looks like a space ship cockpit, but It is very intuitive and easy to navigate. I have had no problem dialing in sounds. I recommend getting the Kemper Remote. I bought the Behringer and tried to make it work and it worked fine, but it would not turn off effects...which I found limiting. I also didn't want to buy a chip to make it work better. I ordered a Remote off the Kemper website and I am very happy with it. It is easy to work with and makes using the Kemper more enjoyable. If you are on the fence about Kemper...don't be. It is an excellent machine.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Great service and quick delivery. I love buying equipment from GC.

        Comments about Kemper Profiler Rack Rackmount Guitar Amplifier:

        Unless you're an unbelievably nit-picky "purist", the Kemper Profiler renders your amps obsolete. Without question, it renders all other digital amp emulators and software obsolete. The sounds you get from the Profiler are exactly as advertised. I highly recommend.

        I use the Kemper profiler for all of my recording, practicing, writing, and gigging. I run it directly into an atomic clr frfr wedge and it sounds amazing for everything (even modern metal.)

        There is not a single thing i can say negative about this unit, I haven't even had to update it or download any new profiles yet because the unit sounds great and has so many amps profiled already within it.
