Kemper Amps Profiling Amplifier
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier is an entirely new and groundbreaking concept for guitar amplification using digital technology. Kemper believes that every guitar player should be able to transfer his/her personal signature sound into a single lunchbox-format amplifier.
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier digitally captures the sonic fingerprint of virtually any guitar amp. The days of struggling to reproduce that magic mic position in front of the speaker cabinet are over. Now you can have a profile for every combination of tones and settings your tube amp setup provides. The Kemper Profiling Amplifier offers a convenient and accurate A/B comparison mode so you can be sure that all your profiles are just like the original amp.
If you have used some great-sounding, well-maintained vintage tube amps in the studio, you can create profiles from these amps to use anywhere you like, at any time. Profiles can be spiced up with the Kemper Profiling Amplifier‘s included professional quality effects; you can save variations with alternative amp settings, and you can exchange the cabinet simulation within a Profile at any time.
Do you plan on touring? Simply dial up your Profiles from the studio session when you play live. Instead of having to risk bringing a truckload of rare and fragile vintage amps to the gig to get your sound, now you can profile your amps before the tour, and just bring the Kemper Profiling Amplifier with you on the road!
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier gives you what generations of guitar players have been waiting for: the ability to have your sound anytime, anywhere.
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier offers 4 independent stomp effects slots which can host a full arsenal of stomp box effects including painstakingly modeled famous overdrive and
distortion stomp boxes, compressor, reverb, several delays and LoFi algorithms, and a beautiful rotary speaker emulation.
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier makes it easy for you to share your personal library with other users. It already holds a vast number of rigs. Sharing a profile or rig is as easy as sending an e-mail.
Amplifier profiling is a new and unique way to extract the sound and feel of a tube amp and store it away for later use. Profiling doesn‘t just create a static snapshot; it can give you a deeper control of your sound than your original amp can provide. The response to your playing, dynamics and all other details are captured by the profiling process.
THE INPUT STAGE
Thanks to a Hi-Z input optimized for passive guitar pickups, the Kemper Profiling Amplifier offers a crystal clear signal path.
The Stack section of the Kemper Profiling Amplifier consists of the profiled amplifier, equalizer and cabinet. You can mix and match any amp with any cabinet in your library. You can even creatively change the sonic behaviour of any recently profiled amplifier.
The master effects section features reverb, delay and additional slots for stomp boxes to refine your amplifier’s tone. The six knobs on the front panel offer convenient access to the most important settings. The reverb section features a dense and lively reverb algorithm which won’t mask the original signal. The delay section features several tape and stereo delay algorithms which can be synched to MIDI clock.
THE AMP CONTROLS
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier includes the standard Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble and Presence controls that you would expect from a guitar amplifier. However, in contrast to many vintage amps, we have kept the gain control neutral, so you are able to find the sweet spot of your amp, and run this optimal sound at any gain level
