Kemper says: 'The Profiler now features numerous bass profiles in the factory rig content, including excellent direct profiles taken from the DI output of the bass amps. Additionally, of course players will like the mildly distorted profiles taken from tube-driven bass amps and speakers, captured by microphone.
'In addition to the factory content, we have also released special rig packs containing excellent complete rigs for bass. These are available from the our download page. Players should also be sure to check out the Rig Exchange webpage to download rigs by other users, or even share their own.'
Here's what Kemper say about the Kemper Profiler PowerRack Amp
The Kemper Profiler PowerRack adds a built in 600 Watt power amp to the Kemper Profiler concept and turns the former recording solution into the most versatile guitar amplification system ever. Utilizing the Kemper CabDriver mode, guitarists now have the choice of playing through regular guitar cabinets or full range monitor systems. This extends the Kemper Profiler concept as the perfect solution for the rehearsal room and the stage.
The 600 Watt Class D amplifier was carefully selected for the guitar amplification system to guarantee utmost performance. After extensive listening tests, a lot of measuring and looking thoroughly at the typical sonic behavior of power amps for guitar amplification on the market, it became clear that only the best components are capable of delivering impressive results.

Here's what Kemper say about the Kemper Profiling Amp
The Kemper Profiler™
The Kemper Profiler™ is the leading-edge digital guitar amplifier and all-in-one effects processor.
Hailed as a game-changer by guitarists the world over, the Profiler™ is the first digital guitar amp to really nail the full and dynamic sound of a guitar or bass amp. This is made possible by a radical, patented technology and concept which we call "Profiling™".
For decades, the electric guitarist has been shackled to the tube amplifier as the only means of achieving "that sound". This magical combination is by no means ideal - the challenge to achieve a consistent sound from the practice room to the studio, and especially to the stage, continues to frustrate guitarists, just as it has since the early 1940s.
With the advent of the Kemper Profiler™, everything has changed. For the first time in history, guitar players are free to create their most individual tones - tones that reflect the very essence of their playing style - and then capture these tones exactly into the digital domain with the unique technology provided by Kemper™.
Profiling™ is the key!
The Best Amps In The World
Feel like you don't have any tube amps worth Profiling™? No problem!
The Profiler™ ships with hundreds of amps and Rigs pre-installed, created by professional musicians and engineers from some of the world’s top studios. In addition, you can access and explore another couple hundreds of Rigs that come bundled in our free Rig Manager software. This premier selection of factory Rigs grants you access to the rarest and finest amps on the planet.
We are constantly refining, updating and extending our free-to-use libraries by fine-tuning the existing catalog and by adding brand new, licensed content. Our goal is to allow our users to explore the full spectrum of guitar culture and heritage, which is why we have strived to create the widest range of Profiles in every possible genre.
The Profiler™ revolutionizes the typical workflow of a recording session. Guitarists can now move freely between projects - the Profiles of their guitar rigs allowing them to do overdubs or alternative takes whenever they like. You could rent a professional studio for a day or two to create the best Profiles of your amps, and then record in your project studio later - you'll have the exact sound of the professional studio, but with all the time in the world.
Think reamping … Imagine you're working on the final mix of an album - wouldn't it be great to reamp tracks with the exact same sound and response, without having to rebuild the entire recording setup for each song?
Playing live is where the PROFILER™ really comes into its own - just spend a little time making PROFILEs in the studio, and you can play live with the exact same sound that you used on your blockbuster hit, only without the need for multiple amp setups on stage. You will sound better than ever before through the PA.
Since the sound of the cabinet you mic’ed in the studio is immortalized in the PROFILE, there is no need to mic a speaker cab on stage. In fact, you don't have to carry a cabinet up on stage at all! You can monitor yourself via the common stage-monitor wedge and save a lot of backache and cargo costs. Not to mention your band mates (and mixing engineer), who might just love you for leaving this very loud sound source at home!
Of course, you might still be drawn to the raw energy that a real cabinet can bring to the rehearsal room and live stage. The KEMPER PROFILER is well prepared for this as well - you can still drive a cabinet by an external power-amp, fed by the monitor outputs of the PROFILER. Or, for ultimate convenience, our 'powered' PROFILER versions are equipped with a built-in Class-D amplifier with up to 600W output. To prevent the amp sound going through two guitar cabinets in a row, the virtual cabinet can be switched off for the outputs feeding the monitor and speakers, while remaining active for the main outputs feeding the PA.
Now, as the real cabinet is only being used as your personal monitor, you can adjust your volume on stage independently, without affecting the signal volume going to front-of-house.
Let's face it - rocking-out at home is difficult for most of us. Analog tube amps only start to sing at levels where the only neighbors who’ll enjoy your 10min rock’n’roll extravaganza will be the ones who live half-a-mile away! The PROFILER, however, sounds great at any level.
Play it through your home stereo or through headphones. Use the dedicated ‘Space’ effect to make headphones a more pleasurable experience, and to reduce ear fatigue. Play along to your favorite music by connecting your MP3 player to the auxiliary in, and then mixing it with the amp signal.
New Kemper Drives - Now Released with Profiler OS 8.0.5!
Profiler operating system 'Version 8' adds new overdrives to the Profiler’s FX arsenal. The Kemper Drives establish an entirely new Overdrive-System, inspired by industry-standard pedals like the:
- Ibanez / Maxon TS808, TS9
- Klon Centaur
- Horizon Precision Drive
- Boss OD-1, SD-1
- Analogman King Of Tone
- Timmy Overdrive
- Marshall Bluesbreaker MK1
The Kemper Drive recreates all of these sought-after overdrive tones, and at the same time, goes far beyond those as well: combining all the classic tonal characteristics into just one "Pedal". This allows for the unique possibility to seamlessly morph between all the overdrive classics and create the perfect tone for any particular guitar, amp, and cabinet combination — from creamy, smooth saturation to the tightening of high-gain sounds. For a start, 21 presets are available to get going easily.
