I did a quick test this evening making a profile with the Suhr Reactive Load IR, everything went smoothly and it is really nice being able to make profiles without a guitar cab and mics. Of course now the whole issue of which IR (the rabbit hole) comes into play, so in this case I simply chose an IR that I had previously used for a demo of the BE100 with good results.
I haven't taken the time to really test the resulting profiles but my initial impressions are good, it seems to work fine using the Reactive Load IR to make profiles. During the A/B test I couldn't tell the difference when monitoring through a CLR cab.
I've tried making profiles with the Torpedo Live in the past and I just wasn't happy with the reactive load portion of the unit, it isn't bad, it just didn't suit me like the Suhr Reactive Load does.
Anyway, I don't have time to record a demo but I wanted to share the profiles in case anyone wanted to check them out. The amp is the Friedman BE100 (my favorite amp of all time), I'm not going to say which IR I used so please don't ask.
There are three files, the last letter tells you which format the profile is.
D = Direct Amp
S = Studio
M = Merged
This way you can compare the Studio and Merged profiles if you want to or you can use your own cab with the Direct Amp profile if you want to. I like options
All other option switches: Off
Other than refining the profile I made no other changes, I didn't feel the need to, the results were so close that I couldn't tell the difference between the profile and the amp through the CLR.
EDIT: Here's a quick recording test to show how the Studio, Merged and Amp sounds compare. Here is what you will hear, but not in this order, can you tell which is which?
Guitar-->Ditto Looper-->Amp-->Reactive Load-->DAW
Guitar-->Ditto Looper-->Kemper Studio Profile-->DAW
Guitar-->Ditto Looper-->Kemper Merged Profile-->DAW
