Imagine this. You are a guitarist called into a recording session. You know that you need to be able to play a great, clean Rhythm Guitar part. You know that you want a super tight, not-quite chicken pickin' (with a little compression) sound- almost like a Fender Twin but with more of a harmonic scoop.
One of the greatest enemies we all have as guitarists is that we usually carry one amp to the gig or recording session. The problem is that one amp won't do the job. As you collaborate on the "perfect sound" you begin to realize that you want more of a Matchless DC30 sound (similar to the Fender but certainly a greater scoop and more focus).
If you have ever played a Kemper Guitar Amplifier then you already know that we can save the day for you. With your Kemper you can dial up an exact profile of the various guitar amplifiers that we have already discussed and so much more. Your Kemper amp goes way beyond sound modeling. It is profiling- and you can create the profiles yourself or play with one of the hundred of existing, world-famous profiles. You can also add all kinds of effects to finish off your sound. The amp profiles sound absolutely amazing- truly amazing.
And because your clean tracks went down so well now you are invited to play some overdriven tracks now, too. No worries, do you want a Marshall, Dr. Z or Vox sound? Or perhaps a Friedman, 65 Amps or Boogie sound? Whatever your heart desires, you have it right there. This is the only amp out there that sounds so amazing, regardless of the many differing amp profiles.
Every guitarist wishes they could take 3 or 4 amps out on the road with them, or even for that one show. But most of us don't have the money or the time (or the back) for this. Thank you, Kemper! You saved the day!
ThePROFILER Head comes with classic curves. It makes a perfect silhouette on a 4x12 cabinet. Yet it's so light and compact that it can be taken onto a plane as hand-luggage. The footprint of the Head is tiny - perfect designed for the desk of your project studio, right beside your computer. ThePROFILER Head is available in black and white color.
The PROFILER revolutionizes the typical workflow of a recording session. Guitarists can now move freely between projects - the PROFILEs of their guitar rigs allowing them to do overdubs or alternative takes whenever they like. You could rent a professional studio for a day or two to create the best PROFILEs of your amps, and then record in your project studio later - you'll have the exact sound of the professional studio, but with all the time in the world.
Think reamping … Imagine you're working on the final mix of an album - wouldn't it be great to reamp tracks with the exact same sound and response, without having to rebuild the entire recording setup for each song?
Playing live is where the PROFILER really comes into its own - just spend a little time making PROFILEs in the studio, and you can 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 immortalized 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 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 cabinet by an external power-amp, fed by the monitor outputs of the PROFILER. Or, 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 guitar cabinets in a row, the virtual cabinet can be switched off for the outputs feeding the monitor and speakers, while remaining active for the main outputs feeding the PA.
Now, as the real cabinet is only being used as your personal monitor, you can adjust your volume on stage independently, without affecting the signal volume going to front-of-house.
Let's face it - rocking-out at home is difficult for most of us. Analog tube amps only start to sing at levels where the only neighbors who’ll enjoy your 10min rock’n’roll extravaganza will be the ones who live half-a-mile away! The PROFILER, however, sounds great at any level.
Play it through your home stereo or through headphones. Use the dedicated ‘Space’ effect to make headphones a more pleasurable experience, and to reduce ear fatigue. Play along to your favorite music by connecting your MP3 player to the auxiliary in, and then mixing it with the amp signal.
