With the Profiler PowerRack you get all the profiling capabilities and massive versatility of the Profiler but with a high quality power section that allow for playing through regular guitar cabinets or full range monitor systems.

The 600 Watt Class D amplifier was carefully selected for the guitar amplification system to guarantee utmost performance.

What is Profiling?
‘Profiling’ is what Kemper has named their proprietary technology that captures the sound and feel of a specific tube amplifier. In other words, the Kemper Profiler PowerRack doesn’t simply give you a list of static digital amplifier reproductions. Instead, profiling creates a vivid, living, dynamic and multi-dimensional image of your existing tube amp.

Profiling is as simple as plugging your tube amp into the Kemper Profiler PowerRack amp and pressing ‘record.’ Just insert the Kemper Profiling amplifier into the recording chain and it will do its magic. Test signals will be sent from the Kemper Profiler PowerRack guitar amp into your tube amp and recorded by the microphone in front of your cabinet.

You don’t even have to play your guitar. After less than a minute the Kemper Profiling Amplifier acquires the sonic DNA of your tube amp and offers you the resulting custom profile. You can then use the A/B comparison mode to compare original tube amp sound with the profiled sound for a fast and convenient way to make final tweaks to the profile to get it exactly right. Now you can take that sweet vintage tube amp sound wherever you go!

Enjoy the great profiles and rigs that come with it
They were created by professional guitarists, engineers and producers in studios all over the world. Right out of the box, you will find classic tones of studio standards as well as profiles of highly sought-after amplifiers, some costing many times the price of the Kemper Profiler PowerRack.

The growing library
Kemper will be working tirelessly to create new profiles for you to download for free from their website. All the profiles they create are extracted from real amplifiers and cabinets, each with a distinct personality of its own.

Create your own profiles from your own amps
If you happen to have access to tube amps, feel free to make your own profiles. You will probably feel more familiar with profiles of your own gear, than with those other people have made. If you are tracking in a studio, you should profile the guitar amps that you record with. Later, you simply take these profiles with you and know that you can recreate the exact sound of the recording, both in the rehearsal studio and live on stage.

Amp Controls
The Kemper Profiler PowerRack 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, Kemper has 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.

Now, imagine if you could change the sonic character of a profile way beyond what’s possible with the amp itself. What if you could change the sonic age of the amp, or the bite of the pick? What if you could modify the power supply of your profiled amp in order to benefit from power sagging or be larger than life? With the Kemper Profiling Amplifier guitar amp processor, you can!

Kemper allows you to dynamically adjust key aspects of your favorite amps which would otherwise be impossible or require hardware modifications. You can do anything from minor tweaks, such as making your Marshall Bluesbreaker profile sound a bit more vintage, to more radical changes such as adding some modern high gain chunk to your vintage Fender Bassman.

Control way beyond the usual:
  • The Amp Definition parameter determines whether the Profile leans more towards a vintage or modern character. Increase this parameter to intensify the touch response of the virtual tubes.
  • The Power Sagging parameter lets the tubes breathe with your playing; damped strings will have more ‘chug,’ and clean, picked notes will cut through better when you reduce your playing volume.
  • The Pick parameter controls the attack of your pick independently of the gain setting-even through heavy distortion. This innovative parameter lets you decouple your pick sound from the natural compression of the distorting tubes and cut right through the mix.
  • The Amp Compressor will sustain the clean guitar when you play soft, but lets the distorted sound through, unprocessed, when you revert back to normal playing volume.
  • The Cabinet Voicing parameters give you access to the guts and the character of the cabinet. You can change the size of your virtual cabinet, tune the bass resonance or control the tonal character in a creative way.

Killer tones!!!!
Product Rating

Product Review

Awesome product and amazing versatility! Read the manual! If you want to use a real guitar cab you have to change settings to turn off the cab sim or it will sound bad. Super easy though. Any negative reviews I’ve seen all seem to be user error. Just like any other piece of equipment you can make it sound bad. This is a serious piece of equipment that takes time to learn, not like hooking up an amp and just playing with a three band eq. Take your time and enjoy all the tones you could ever want!

Great overall still have a lot to explore

Product Review

So far after a month with the Kemper I can say no tone is impossible to capture. The options are endless and it works great with any pedal you'd like to add. I have been a touring musician since I was 19 and this will be going on the road with me from now on. I can clone any of my tube amps and save them from possible wear and tear on the road. Even though this thing isn't chea, it will save a lot of money in the end.

Well worth the money

Product Review

It’s pretty expensive, but definitely worth it. My neighbors always complain about everything so I decided to buy a kemper to record at lower levels and it’s been great. The stock profiles aren’t that great, so I recommend getting profiles from tonecrate because they sound amazing.
