Playing live is where the Profiler really comes into its
own - all the time and effort you put into making profiles
in the studio means you can now play live with the exact
same sound that you used on your blockbuster hit, only
without the need for multiple amp setups on stage. You
will sound better than ever before through the PA.
Since the sound of the cabinet you mic’ed in the studio
is immortalised in the profile, there is no need to mic a
speaker cab on stage. In fact, you don't have to carry a
cabinet up on stage at all! You can monitor yourself via
the common stage-monitor wedge, and save a lot of backache
and cargo costs. Not to mention your band mates (and mixing
engineer), who might just love you for leaving this very
loud sound source at home!
Of course, you might still be drawn to the raw energy that
a real speaker cabinet can bring to the rehearsal room and
live stage. The Kemper Profiler is well prepared for this
as well - you can still drive a speaker cabinet by either
a solid-state or tube power-amp, fed by the Profiler’s
monitor output. For ultimate convenience, our 'powered'
Profiler versions are equipped with a built-in Class D
amplifier with up to 600W output. To prevent the amp sound
going through two speaker cabinets in a row, the virtual
cabinet can be switched off for the monitor output, while
remaining active for the main outputs feeding the PA.
Now, as the speaker cabinet is only being used as your
personal monitor, you can adjust your volume on stage
independently, without affecting the signal volume going
