    If you can make them ring with an unplugged guitar, you can do it even better with any Rig. Listen to some old ZZ Top, or other Classic Rock, to hear how little gain they were using to do it back then.

    With '80s/'90s gain, it is even easier. JCM800,Jubilee, and Soldano Rigs can make it easy. Try some Profiles of the amps used by the Artists you have mentioned.

    Guitar speakers are rarely, if ever, pointed directly at the ears, which makes them seem much softer than they really are - while a close mic will pick up it's actual sound quite accurately.

    A long time ago, I made a fun experimental profile of my Marshall for playing at home (but, it is useless for recording or for playing live) by placing the microphone at the same position as the back of my head when playing live.

    An EQ Preset tuned for bass guitars would be extremely useful. It could even be used WITHOUT an amp Profile. We could profile a guitar cable, and add the Bass EQ. Instant Bass amp!

    I hope will one day be achievable is for Kemper to find a way to have multiple (preferably 20 or more) profiles that exist inside of one preset and as you play softer and louder, it adjusts itself) just like a tube being hit harder or softer.

    When I play at stage volume, my Kemper responds to playing dynamics and guitar volume knob changes exactly like my amps that I profiled.

    I send the Headphone Output to a single rack space mixer, and combine it with my received Monitor mix.

    As a bonus, most of the FOH engineers in my area make it possible for musicians to adjust their own monitor mix, using a phone or tablet. They also save the monitor mixes, so the next time you are working with them, you start with the monitor mix from the previous gig. That can make soundcheck go very quickly.

    From the 10.2 manual:

    The cable included in the PROFILER Remote package with its Neutrik® etherCON® cable connector carrier has been carefully selected and is perfectly suited for this purpose. If you decide to use any 3rd party cable, please make sure it meets our quality standards.

    The diameter of the wire is the critical factor. The cable delivered with the Remote meets American Wire Gauge 24 (AWG), which can support up to 7.5m (22ft) length. AWG 26 cables have a smaller diameter and can only support up to 5m (15ft). Cables with higher AWG e.g. AWG 28 should not be used with the Remote.

    Cables in excess of 10m (30ft) might require a Power over Ethernet Injector (PoE Injector).

    I hope someone can clear up my confusion.

    I gather that if my profiler is

    currently running OS 8.7.17, I need to first update to a version of OS9.

    Look at the most current information on the Downloads page on If you have OS 8.7.17 in your profiler, you can directly update to 10.1.2 using a USB drive.

    If you have at least Windows 10 (v1703) or macOS 10.14, you can install Rig Manager 3.4.45 on your computer.

    Do you have any recommended brands? or would these suffice?

    I recommend Pale Blue AA for in ears and guitar wireless. Only do they have plenty of power, and last a long time, but it only takes one hour to fully charge them with the included USB cable.

    The range is still plenty for stage work. Just as long as you don't walk around the way Buddy Guy did

    It certainly worked for Buddy Guy, but, I prefer to stay on the stage, and in the lights :)

    My guess is he built his own version of a battery-powered inductance coil string driver (like an eBow), and put that little antennae on it as a joke. It may have been too simple of a circuit to avoid patent infringement, or just too specialized of a product when he was ready to release his own line.

    EDIT: I just watched more of the video than I did the first time. I agree with the the below comment - it looks like he is using a signal splitter box, as a guitar slide. Like the one in the picture, but with a metal case.

    It is not possible the way you describe. External switch assignment is global - it cannot be assigned per Rig/Performance Slot.

    If the switch is assigned to a specific effects slot, It is possible to assign a different effect in the slot in different rigs, and use the switch to turn them on/off. For example, with the switch assigned to Effects Slot A, a rig could have a wah or a delay or a chorus (etc) stored in Effects Slot A, and the switch would turn the loaded effect on/off.
