Kemper has unveiled the KEMPER PROFILER Stage - a new all-in-one unit that basically combines the KEMPER PROFILER digital guitar amplifier with the PROFILER Remote, the quintessential foot controller for the PROFILER. This is the story in their own words...
The PROFILER Stage is no mere accessory — it is a complete PROFILER. It offers the same features and the legendary sound as the well-known Profiler Head and Rack, and even a bit more.
KEMPER PROFILER Stage™ is a multi-effects powerhouse and state-of-the-art guitar amplifier, featuring KEMPER’s unique PROFILING™ technology for capturing the sonic DNA of any guitar amp. It also comes preloaded with a PROFILE™ pool of hundreds of the best guitar amps in the world, created under perfect conditions in professional studios worldwide.
This combination of PROFILER and Remote allows to control, administer and program Performances, as well as manage Rig switches and complex parameter morphs, all in an unparalleled intuitive manner.
The illuminated sunlight-proof display, which increases display contrast even with the sunlight’s intensity, is designed to be viewed from any distance, under any lighting conditions, and the housing is built like a tank. Just what the doctor ordered for touring musicians on dark stages or sunlit outdoor festivals!
Five buttons allow direct access to five different Rigs per Performance — tap once to select the Rig, and tap again to trigger a morphing. Entire Performances can be switched using a bank system.
Four Effect Buttons can be assigned individually per Rig. Use these to toggle pre- and post amp FX, either singly or in groups, as well as Action & Freeze functions such as Delay Infinity. Setting them up is easier than putting a new contact into your cell phone: click Effect Button, choose FX, assign, done.
Dedicated buttons control Tuner Mode and Looper, as well as trigger Tap Tempo or other assignable functions.
Up to four expression pedals can be connected to control continuous parameters of the sound. Alternatively, external switches can be connected for even more toggling functions.
The PROFILER Stage™ features dedicated Stereo Monitor Outputs for driving two either full range or standard guitar cabinets simultaneously and independently from the direct stereo feed. Two stereo effect loops with stereo returns for each allow for connecting both pedals and outboard studio effects.
About the KEMPER PROFILER™
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier represents a radical new approach to the guitar sound. For decades, the electric guitarist has effectively been shackled to the tube amplifier as the only solution for getting “that sound”. This combination may indeed be glorious, but it is far from ideal; achieving consistent results between practice, studio, and touring situations continues to challenge the guitarist, just as it has since the early 1930's. With the advent of the Kemper Profiling Amplifier, everything has changed. For the first time in history, guitar players are free to create the most unique and individual tones that reflect the very essence of the individual player, and then capture these exact sounds into the digital domain with Kemper's unique technology.
