well,, some guys get it,( making profiles that work) most do not,,,hope your one of thoses who do,,
luv to hear your results,good luck,,
The thing is called Kemper PROFILER for a reason Profiling is the main feature of the unit. So everyone who has the tools and amps available should do the obvious: Profile their gear with the Profiler. That is still the reason many buy the Kemper, to finally capture their own signal chain and amp(s) and enjoy the result (now stored in a handy package).
Of course RE is full of bad examples of people who do not use the Kemper as intended. Profiling with very, very low volume, with wrong or defect gear, without ANY knowledge of placing a mic....so the results can be underwhelming in this cases
But many people are able to place a SM57 and get a nice profile done. That's what the profiler is all about. You can get really good results with only a SM57. And many killer profiles in RE are first attempts of people profiling their own amp.
And some more experienced people with the right tools will have no problem getting pleasing profiles, that fit them better than most packs of sellers.
