Kemper Profiling Amplifier Rack BK

19 "Guitar PreampSince the introduction of modeling technology into the guitar amplifier world, guitarists have been able to access a variety of sounds and effects with relatively little effort.

But what if you want to take your own favorite sounds instead of the manufacturer's sound specifications? Prior to the release of the Kemper Profiling Amp, there were not many alternatives: either, as before the digital revolution, they dragged their entire equipment from place to place, or tried to adapt the modeled sounds of the modeling amp as far as possible to their own desires.

Kemper breaks new ground here. Instead of using predefined emulation of different amplifier models, the Profiling Amp (Nomen est Omen) creates an exact image of the sound set on the amplifier together with the connected speaker and microphone. This combines all the personal favorite sounds in one device. In addition, the sound profile can be edited with various floor effect emulations, master effects, equalizer, and so on. A separate amp fleet is not a mandatory requirement, because the Profiling Amplifier is already equipped with a large number of classic amplifier profiles. In addition, a large Kemper community has now established itself in the world where sound profiles are exchanged over the Internet.

Kemper Profiler Rack

Chris2807, 24.01.2017
I came from an Axe FX II to this, for use in the studio..
I like to set up my parameters from the front panel, with no computer connected, and the Axe FX was pretty tiring in this respect..
The Kemper is much easier to set up from the front, very simple in fact, and the sounds are of excellent quality..
I found the parameter system a bit alien, not much like anything I've used before.. A bar traversing the screen which increases or diminishes according the the amount of effect.. The descriptions of the parameters too, are unusual in general.. There's nothing wrong with this, but I must admit that personally, I prefer a simple numbers system, and classic parameter descriptions, as per most other multieffects. I feel more at home..
Everything sounds great, but I would have liked a parallel routing option included, and I must admit that after loading the USB amps bundle I got from Thomann, I found that there was simply too much choice.. It's pretty tedious trolling through all those amps to try and find one that suits- some sound quite similar.. but if you don't mind that, there's a mountain of choice.
I loved the automatic volume compensation on the compressor, and particularly on the amp gain.. That saves a lot of messing about.. A great feature.. add as much gain as you like, but the volume level stays the same..
I didn't use the amp profiler, as the available sounds are good enough anyway, so I can't comment on that.. I imagine this would be perfect for someone who wants to sample their own amp sound, and have it at their fingertips in a lightweight box.
This is a great product, but I'm going to change it for the Helix, which wasn't yet available at the time that I bought the Kemper. This is mainly because the set up from the front panel is so easy, and the routing options permit more inventive algorithms.. This is important to me.. However, I can highly recommend the Kemper, it is excellent..

Best piece of guitar equipment i've ever used!!

Ian141, 07.11.2015
I've been a valve amp man for over 15 years and thought i'd never stray from my Mesas and Diezels, but as i've got older it's not as easy to 1) Carry all that around to gigs, rehearsals 2) Jam or record without waking or annoying my kids or the neighbours.

The Kemper seemed like the perfect solution, and so it is. The sound quality is outstanding, truely outstanding. Yes i may take you a while to find your way around it, but once you've got things dialed in the way you want you'll not hear any difference from the real thing to the Kemper. I've profiled and bought some great profiles of my favourite amps, and every one sounds incredible and if it doesn't try it with a different cab or pop some eq on it. The options are soooo vast.

The layout is fairly straight forward, and adding effects to profiles is soo easy. With independent buttons for each effect you choose. Want some delay? Tap it in with the tap tempo button then set your mix level and save. It's as easy as that. Having owned a Mesa Dual Rectifier and Diezel Herbert, the profiles you can get are soo close you'll think you are playing the real thing.

I got the non powered rack head, and its super light. Accompanied by a Thomann rack it's bomb proof and soo much lighter to carry to gigs and rehearsal.

This is the best piece of guitar equipment i've ever owned, and the pros that are dumping their big heads and cabs for a Kemper are testimony to this.

Don't think about it, do it, and buy it from Thomann...obviously.
