Kemper Profiler Electric Guitar Amplifier Head - Black

The Kemper Profiler is the leading-edge digital guitar amplifier and all-in-one effects processor.

Hailed as a game-changer by guitarists the world over, the Profiler is the first digital guitar amp to actually "nail" the real, full and dynamic sound of a guitar or bass amp. This is made possible by the radical, and patented technological and conceptual approach they call "Profiling".

For decades, the electric guitarist has effectively been shackled to the tube amplifier as the only means of achieving "that sound". This combination is undoubtedly glorious, but far from ideal. Achieving consistent results between the practice room, the studio and the stage presents a significant challenge to guitarists, just as it has since the early 1940's.

The Profiler revolutionizes the typical workflow of a recording session. By taking profiles of a mic'ed up guitar rig, guitarists for the first time, can freely move in between projects and go back at any time, for overdubs and alternative takes. Rent a professional studio for one or two days to create the best profiles of your amps. Record in your project studio later on with the sound and feel you had earlier on – without time or money pressure.

Think reamping … Wouldn't it be great to reamp tracks with the exact same sound and response later when you’re already working on the final mix? Without rebuilding the entire recording setup just because the producer want to continue working on a different song?

Playing live takes your initial effort to make profiles while recording the next blockbuster hit full cycle. Using the exact same sound like on the record without the need of multiple amp setups on stage opens up a new world of possibilities. You will sound better than before on the PA.

It is not necessary to mic up a speaker cabinet on stage, as the cabinet sound mic'ed in the studio is immortalized in the profile. As a nice consequence, it is not necessary to carry a cabinet up on stage at all. You can monitor yourself by the common stage monitor wedge and save a lot of backache and cargo costs. Your band mates and your mixing engineer might love you for leaving this loud sound source at home.

However, you might still be appealed to the raw energy of a real speaker cabinet in the rehearsal room and on stage. The Kemper Profiler is well prepared for this as well. You can run a speaker cabinet by a solid state or a tube power amp, fed by the Profilers monitor output. For the most convenience Kemper's 'powered' Profiler versions are equipped with a build in Class D amplifier with 600W. The virtual cabinet can be switched off exclusively for the monitor output, to prevent the amp sound going through two cabinets in a row. Still the virtual cabinet is active for the main outputs going to the PA.

Now that you use the speaker cabinet only as your personal monitor, you can adjust your individual volume on stage, independent from the signal volume going to the front-of-house.

Rocking away at home is difficult for the most people. Analog tube amps only sound gorgeous at a level where the neighbors half a mile down the street can enjoy your 10 minute rock’n’roll extravaganza as well. The Profiler sounds great at any level.
Play it by your home stereo or by your headphones. A dedicated effect called 'Space' will render the headphone sound more pleasing and fight ear fatigue. Play along your favourite music by connecting your MP3 player to the auxilliary in and mixing it with the amp signal.
