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.
Profiler Remote is the quintessential foot controller for your Profiler. We’ve spent a tremendous amount of time to create a versatile and yet easy to operate floor board. The tight integration in between Profiler and Remote allows you to control, administer and program without any knowledge about MIDI or delving through cryptic data sheets.

The large, illuminated display is designed to be looked at from a distance and Remote's housing is built like a tank. Just what the doctor orders for touring musicians on dark stages.

Five buttons allow you to directly access five different programs ("Rigs") and entire performance programs can be switched using a bank system. There are dedicated buttons to access the tuner, tap tempo in and enable the new, exclusive Looper Effect.

Remote connects via a single Ethernet cable to your Profiler. No extra power supply in needed and the included cable is 7 meters long (21ft). Longer cables are possible as well.

Up to four continuous foot pedals can control multiple parameters inside your Profiler. Four buttons switch of stomps and effects. The programming required is easier to learn than putting a new contact into your cell phone. Click to choose, assign, done.

The amount of things you can do with this is incredible. Having the ability to go from 2 completely different amps with a push of a button is a dream true.

Product Review

Hands down the best amp I have ever used! The profiles offered for free on the Kemper message board and updates give a endless selection of things to toy with. I am a bassist. And run one of the free Ampeg profile from the website. Once I tried the SVT 2 Pro profile I was sold. I barely had to change any of the settings. I have several different banks just for delay effects and overdrive. The amount of depth you can go into with this thing is endless. Would highly recommend for touring musicians and studio alike.

Product Review

I admit it, I am a tone FANATIC! So many amps, so little money! Picked this one up and haven't looked back! I've tried so many different "modeling" amps out there and always came away a little disappointed. Not so in this case! Every time I fire this bad boy up, it's an exciting time for me, even after several months. The thrill of what it can do is still there! It's got a little bit of a learning curve, but with Kempers online videos and support, everything is a breeze! Profiling is not as scary as it looks either! There are a few different ways you can profile amps and cabinets and each one can help you create truly unique set ups! Especially when you factor in some of the Kemper's own tweakability! The price tag might seem a little high for many (I admit, my wallet is tight too and AMS has a GREAT payment plan that worked for me!), but if you can swing it, you'll never look back! Endless rigs! ENDLESS TONE at your very hands!!

This one makes everything else obsolete!

Product Review

I've tried a bunch from the original tube amps when I started playing, 1973, to the multi-effects and solid state amps and full range speakers of today and everything in-between. The Kemper filters out everything we don't like about tubes and stomp pedals and digital effects while retaining the best of both worlds. The tubes and multi-effects finally fatigued and dis-inspired me or hurt me, literally. The Kemper inspires me -- at any volume! If the Kemper didn't work, I was gonna hang it up! Tube amps or too heavy, too finicky, too loud. Multi-effects are junk. I can't stop playing the Kemper and my progress is just taking off because I'm spending more time playing than tweaking. ...if you are serious about playing guitar, do whatever you are able within the law to get a Kemper or you got no game! And the longer you wait, the further behind you'll get -- it's very complex! I thoroughly regret not buying the Kemper sooner! And, thank you American Musical -- you are the best!

Best amp I’ve ever owned

Product Review

After 20 years of always finding that I want more I finally found the solution. I’ve had Mesa, EVH, peavy, Marshall, and more tube amps. I had line 6 modelers and used bias and such. But I could never find the right tones, I am a tone junky after all. As my desires grew more and more expensive it became harder to fill the need. And the trade off was to sell something to get something new. So to get new ment loosing what I had, Well no more. I can have my cake and eat it too with the kemper. The tones are so real feeling that I don’t miss tubes. The flexibility and versatility are unmatched. I have no complaints for live or recording, “though for live I suggest a good FRFR cab.” I’ve heard many people talk about the effects and that they aren’t that great but they are more than I need and more then good enough for me. So yah just play one and you’ll understand.

Get the Kemper, improve your life!!!!

Product Review

I have been using the now discontinued Marshall JMP1 since 1995 and it is the most killer guitar sound on the planet but as time marches on I know it will fail eventually so I bought the Kemper profiling amp and now I have many Marshall JMP1 sounds to choose from! I also run a recording studio and once we have achieved a guitar sound for a client I will quickly profile that sound with the Kemper and if any parts need to be dubbed in post the guitarist will just plug into my Kemper and boom same sound as the record! The Kemper is the best new guitar product in years!! AMS helps me so much with their payment plans, taking each payment off my credit card helps me maintain a good credit score because I’m not taking out a new loan as I would have done with AMS competitors I love the Kemper and I love AMS!!!!!
