Kemper Amps introduced the Kemper Profiling Amplifier – a new amp that ‘learns’ the sound of any amp – at the 2011 Winter NAMM Show.
Here’s what Kemper has to say about the Profiling Amplifier:
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier is a new concept for guitar amplification in the digital domain. The Kemper Profiling Amplifier “learns” the sonic behavior of any guitar amplifier and offers the tone and feel the player knows from his “real” amp. Now there can be a profile available of any sonic condition the tube amp setup can provide.
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier will come with profiles of classic tube amps: the british, the californish, the germish … of course including the classic speaker cabinets which are a part of the profiling result.
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier will come as a lunchbox size device ,with all the professional connections for home, studio and on stage use. It is completed with a stomp box section, a master FX section and a set of unique, before impossible parameters for shaping the amp profiles further, from classic architecture to modern. A realistic power amp sagging, which is normally only available at very high volume, is also “a part of the stack”.
Here’s an overview of the new Kemper Profiling Amplifier:
