Kemper Set Profiling Head + Remote · Guitar Preamp
How does that work? First of all, with absolute cutting edge technology that can capture the sonic DNA of any guitar amp. The resulting profiles are as lively, impulsive and dynamic as the original amp.
The profile itself is quite simple. First, closing a Kemper at the input of the amp to be profiled, or at the beginning of the corresponding signal chain and let him work. The Kemper Profiler now sends different test signals into the amplifier and then draws on a speaker to be placed in front of the microphone. The type of this microphone also plays a role. The guitar is not being used not here. After less than a minute the white modest Kemper and presents the resulting profile. Now you can through the A / B comparison mode (and of course, this time with the guitar) compare the profile directly to the original sound of the amp and, if necessary, to create final hand to tease out last nuances.
The resulting options are naturally gorgeous. The gain control of the Kemper is kept neutral, so as the sound of a gaping to collar Full stacks reproducible even at neighborhood kompatibeler volume is. The built-in effects section also contributes to individual fine tuning, such as up to four virtual upstream stomp. Obviously, you can not with parameters, such as, for example, change the Power Sagging the saturation behavior and, and, and ...
Kemper Profiling Amp
The Kemper Profiling technology represents a quantum leap in the reproduction of authentic effect/amp/speaker and microphone sounds.
With a conventional modeling technic a specific Amp Speaker combination is simulated, the profiling technic however offers its own or desired setup consisting of effect pedals, amps, speakers or microphones to be transfered to the Kemper Profiling Amp. Here all dynamic and tonal nuances are analyzed over 1:1 and the chosen sound the current sound is so to say cloned.

Too good to be true?Horspip on 27.01.2016
After many months of research, trying out in shops, reading reviews and visiting the users' forum, I finally bought a Kemper Profiling Amp (KPA). I also bought the (relatively newly released) Kemper Remote floor controller. This was to replace my beloved Mesa Roadster combo, large pedal board and rack effects/switching system, which had become too large and heavy to haul around week in, week out.
Did I expect it to sound as good as my wonderful valve amp system? Not really, no. But it was going to be smaller, lighter and more versatile: guitar amp, bass amp, acoustic amp, effects, live and studio solution...
I've now owned it for a month, which has given me time to become more familiar with it. I've profiled my own amps, recorded with it and, most importantly, played a dozen or so live shows with it.
Verdict: it's everything I hoped it would be, PLUS it sounds as good as my wonderful valve amp. Or, to be more precise, exactly the same, as I profiled that vey amp and get to play with it still!
I have yet to come across any real down-sides to the Kemper. It can be as much or as little as you want it to be. The effects are great (I wasn't necessarily expecting that), the user forum is very active with enthusiastic and helpful souls, and the real icing on the cake is that Kemper regularly produce software updates which add even more features, effects and functionality. Astonishing!
I am very, very pleased with my purchase. Sounds too good to be true, but nevertheless, it's true!
