200 factory presets and extensive online resources

Right out of the box, the Kemper Profiling Amplifier has a ton of profiled amps ready to play. Just connect the Profiling Amplifier to your sound system or recording rig, and you're set. And even if you don't have a collection of amps to profile, there are hundreds of profiled amplifiers available online, and the community of Kemper profilers is growing every day.

Profile your own amplifiers

While the incredibly lifelike profiles included with the Profiling Amplifier will appeal to everybody, you'll also love the Profiling Amplifier if you have a ton of amps already. It's easy to connect the Profiling Amplifier to the amp you want to profile, hook up a microphone, capture the sound of that amp, and store it as a preset. You'll be amazed at how accurately your profiled amp preset responds to the gain and tone controls.

The perfect link between stage and studio

Ever been frustrated trying to re-create the tone you captured on a recording when you play out live? Then you'll love the Profiling Amplifier, because it can profile your studio sound while you're recording. Just take a split of the mic you're recording with and use the split signal to connect to the Profiling Amplifier. You'll capture the sound of your studio performance, ready to be recalled on any stage in the world at a moment's notice.

Profile Remote provides you with hands-free control

If you have a Kemper Profiler Amp, then you'll find the Profiler Remote foot controller system to be indispensable. The Profiler Remote doesn't just match the aesthetic of the Profiler Amp, it also offers tight integration with its functions. Four buttons let you directly access five program patches, and an additional four expression pedal inputs let you control continuous parameters such as gain, volume, wah-wah effects, and delay sends. There's also a tuner and a looper function onboard, and the Profiler Remote connects to the amp via standard Ethernet cable for added convenience.

Kemper Profiling Amplifier Features at a Glance:
  • Lunchbox-sized guitar preamplifier can create profiles of any physical guitar amplifier
  • Includes 200 amplifier profiles for you to start with
  • Easy to profile your own amplifiers - all you need is a microphone and cable, guitar cables, and a combo amp or amp head and cabinet

  • Automatic spillover lets your delay and reverb tails fade out naturally when you change presets

Kemper profiler

Amazing device. Great service from Geoff.

Best Amp simular/profiler Ever

I run my kemper through a focusrite 6i6 into some Yamaha hs 8 studio monitors and I couldn't be more impressed. The sound is every bit as full and amazing as I wanted then some. Even on my guerilla msr6 (which has a notably shallow tone) the Kemper makes it sing like a Gibson. Or punch like a schecter. Couldn't be more pleased

Really Good, But Be Patient

The Kemper is really an amazing piece of equipment, even though it takes a little while to get the hang of it. First and foremost the best thing - and that is the tone and quality of sound that you can get out of the amp. I took two of my favorite amps with several cabinet combinations (Peavey 6505+ with Marshall 4x12 cabinet, Marshall JCM800 through Marshall 4x12 cabinet, and Peavey 6505+ through Mesa 4x12 cabinet) and profiled them. And just as many others and the reviews said, I captured my exact sound. But then went a step further and did testing through my band's PA system. One of the frustrations I have had is getting amazing tones from my amps but then hearing something different coming out of the PA when it was mic'd. I am happy to say if you are patient enough to tweak each of your tones on the Kemper, you can get the exact sound of your amp the way you like it right out of the PA. Probably why so many pro bands use the Kemper for live performances. Also, there is a mind-boggling 8,000+ tones on the Kemper Rig Exchange and it didn't take me long to find some really nice Fender Twin cleans to compliment the hard overdrive of my own collection. And, you can browse each tone through Rig Manager (more on that below) without actually downloading. As you can imagine, there are some really good rigs out there but there are a ton that you would never want or use. Now the not-so-good: There is a learning curve with the Kemper, which is nothing unusual to any amp or modeler. First you have to learn the Kemper process/workflow and then optionally work with Rig Manager, which is Kemper's software. Long story short, the software can be a bit "buggy" and it is not the most comprehensive or user friendly item to use. I mainly use it to set up performances and you kind of have to mess with the software to get it to work properly. As mentioned, a bit buggy. But, with that small thing in mind, the Kemper gives you amazing tones and flexibility and you will sound great in studio or live. I love mine.

Kemper Profiles in Courage

After having my ears dulled by years of using Line 6 gear I bought a Kemper w/remote. Holy Cow!!! What a HUGE HUGE difference. I dialed up a clean Fender Twin profile and was stunned by how pristine it was. The Kemper comes loaded with hundreds of profiles and rigs ( patches to you Line 6 folks) and there are hundreds more to get for free on the Rig Exchange and also some for sale online done by some very very high quality studios. The tweak-ability is great. It's not as complex as a Fractal AX FX but the depth of control over most parameters is there. Would you rather spend your time sitting in front of your computer tweaking and tweaking and overwhelmed by a gazillion things to futz with, or do you want to play? The interface is very intuitive and the manuals cover pretty much everything and the online community is very helpful as well. The remote is a great thing to have and easy to program, not a lot of having to do midi commands. Want to assign a stomp to the remote? Hold the stomp button on the KPA and tap which switch you want to use on the remote and you are done. Easy.Kemper is always updating their firmware to improve things, and also to implement user's ideas. These are all free. And unlike Line 6 you don't have to pay for any new amps that Kemper adds to the collection.So . . you want a Marshall, a Fender, an Orange or Friedman BE but can't afford to buy all of them? Get a Kemper. It has made playing fun again. I want to thank Jeff Barnett at Sweatwater for great service thru the years. Sweetwafer is my first choice as far as buying gear and Jeff has made it pretty easy.

Very Convincing

The detail is amazing and the flexability is even better. The sound in stereo is just like a recording of your favorite player. The more you crank it up the unit responds just like the real thing.
