'cause we love this sound... If Kemper Co. could make it....
as a matter of fact, the Profiler gives you one of the main ingredients to a NIN-ish sound: the uncommon distortion stomps Soft Shaper, Hard Shaper, Wave Shaper and Recti Shaper.
add to that the availability of a Ringmodulator, Freq Shifter and the Bit Shaper and you have all the tools you need to mangle or 'industrialize' sounds.
don't forget to try reducing the character parameter in the CABINET menu to add a 'direct into the board' or speaker-sim quality to the sound.
it's all there, be adventurous

Thanks for the tips
