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 Kemper Profiling Amplifier received 3 MIPA award for best "Innovative Product " and "Guitar Top" in 2013 and best "innovative product" in 2012.
They were created by professional guitarists, engineers and producers in studios all over the world. Right out of the box, you will find classic tones of studio standards as well as profiles of highly sought-after amplifiers, some costing many times the price of the Kemper Profiler.
We will be working tirelessly to create new profiles for you to download for free from our website. All the profiles we create are extracted from real amplifiers and cabinets, each with a distinct personality of its own. To take the profiles, we employ the exact same techniques an engineer would use to create a great guitar tone in the studio, so you can be sure to receive the most authentic sounds from a digital guitar amp, ever!
If you happen to have access to tube amps, feel free to make your own profiles. You will probably feel more familiar with profiles of your own gear, than with those other people have made.
It might be also a nice idea to hire a professional studio for a day or two, where you can create your signature profiles with the help of an experienced sound engineer. You then have the luxury of being able to use these profiles wherever you like, and with no time constraints.
If you are tracking in a studio, you should profile the guitar amps that you record with. Later, you simply take these profiles with you and know that you can recreate the exact sound of the recording, both in the rehearsal studio and live on stage.
If you are looking for a particular sound, search the Rig Exchange database on our website, and download profiles and rigs from fellow users.
Play completely different amp models rather than just switching amp channels on stage! Imagine playing the verse with a sparkling profile of a 1965 black-faced 2x12" combo, done in a premiere studio in Nashville, while burning through the solo with a hot-rodded, British 100Watts monster, driving a 4x12" cab you just profiled last week in your buddy's rehearsal space. How cool is that?
The Hi-Z input makes sure every nuance of your playing comes through, and that your volume and tone pot settings work just as you would expect. This is also why your trusty old stompboxes work so well in front of the Kemper Profiler.
Integrate external gear
Use the effects loop to integrate stompboxes or rack effects in your rig, at any point in the signal chain.
Play it live
The monitor output supplies a cab sim free signal for your power-amp and cabinet on stage, while the FOH receives your signal with the cab sim intact.
Every detail counts
We love paying attention to the small details. For instance, a special control allows for continuous crossfade between a serial and parallel routing of the delay and reverb. Both, the delay and reverb feature a full spillover when switching between rigs. Tails are never cut off at any time, even when the upcoming rig features totally different effects.
Sounds of the professionals
Right from the start the Kemper Profiler comes equipped with more than 200 profiles, featuring vintage classics, modern high-gain amps and rare boutique items. These profiles were made by top engineers and producers in premiere studios around the world.
