    keem85 Report back. I dig that tone, too. When I was a teen I used to play an older friend's amp rig whenever we'd play shows together. It was a 100W JCM 2000 into a Marshall slant 4x12 with a Pro Co Rat for drive. I'm not sure what Dave used on this record (I thought his AC30 days came later in his career), but it sounds a lot like that. Sort of phase-y and punchy and raw. It was one of the best rigs I've ever played.

    ncbassplayer That's too bad to hear. Telling that they didn't post clips. I absolutely hated the Dr. Z official pack, and haven't been blown away by what I've heard of the Victory stuff.


    I agree that getting manufacturers onboard with their own paid profiles is the most ethical way to deal with all the Kemper can do, and I support that. But come on, manufacturers — at least do it right.

    I've been running my Kemper into a Mackie Thump12BST two-way powered PA speaker with an upgraded Eminence Legend EM12N 12" guitar driver for the past 6 months. It's just over 30 lbs (maybe even less with the neodymium speaker) and has all the output and headroom I can imagine needing for stage monitoring purposes — the kind of stages I play, anyway. It does pretty well for acoustic tones, too.


    I've been impressed with the EM12N. It's so transparent that I prefer it with my Kemper cabs ON, though it's definitely got the punch of a traditional guitar speaker. Way better touch response than the Mackie's stock speaker. I'm hitting it with some generous EQ via the Kemper's monitor output section.


    If you're going full-on FRFR, the Mission Engineering Gemini 2 is supposedly the Cadillac of FRFRs. I've played both the 8" and 12" HeadRushes, both the Line 6 PowerCab models, a ValveTrain PowerTrain Stage 50, and a Friedman ASC-12. None of these did a whole lot for me.

    Can someone go ahead and profile the entire HeadRush Pedalboard and share? Thanks. ;)


    Eleven always has made good stuff. I used an Eleven Rack into an IR pedal for a year before I migrated to the Kemper. I still regret not profiling some of those patches.

    AdamMassacre1981 To get to the output menu, you'll hold the "Output" switch in the upper-right corner of your Profiler. There are something five screens to scroll through via the left and right advance. Things I would check:


    1) Make sure there is no global EQ set on your recording output

    2) Dial back the Pure Cabinet setting a healthy amount. I set mine to 1.0, and that's mostly because I'm superstitious.

    3) Either disable the Space control from outputting to your interface, or set it low — somewhere around 1.0. I actually like the stereo effects it gives me over S/PDIF.

    AdamMassacre1981 , what’s your email? I’m going to send you a few patches, and you can see if you like them any better than what you’ve got.


    To answer your question I failed to yesterday, I doubt it’s anything related to your signal path (interface, DAW, computer). Just make sure you’re gain staging properly and not clipping anything on the way in or out.

    AdamMassacre1981 , listening on my phone, I don’t think it sounded all that bad. I know feel has a lot to do with it, but on sound alone, I’d give it a B-.


    The strength of the Profiler has everything to do with the strength of the profiles. Have you tried the freebies on the Rig Exchange? Have you tried any third-party vendors? Multiple third-party vendors? I won’t name names (unless prompted), but just because a pack costs good money doesn’t mean it’s plain good.


    And at the end of the day, it’s all a matter of preference. I’ve never felt that ultra-high gain was the Profiler’s strongest suit. I know some would fight me on that. Maybe the Fractal would be be a better match? Or your amps plus the UA OX.

    bought it too

    all profiles sounds appr. the same, not very impressed by the set

    Thanks for reaching out. I Issued you a full refund. I’m sorry to hear they didn’t work out.


    Ibot39 I used a Two Notes Torpedo Reload reactive loadbox running Wall of Sound. No mics involved. Let me know what you think.

    I was looking for a Janet Jackson "Black Cat" sort of guitar vibe for a project last week when I stumbled across these RE gems. They were 100% perfect out of the box the tones, the FX, everything. I had such a blast recording with them. Thanks a lot, Marcoyyz and paults .

    I'm pleased to announce my Fonder 62 PrinceCS profile pack. It's based on the Chris Stapleton Fender Princeton that came out this earlier year. Captured clean and dirty through a T-Rex Mudhoney II. Full money-back guarantee if you don't 100% love it.


    Another thing: I've changed my pricing structure. If you've bought any of my packs at full price (i.e. without a discount code), message me and I'll refund the difference.
