This is the perfect combination of Kemper Profiler and Remote - a true workhorse for the gigging guitarist!

Here’s what Kemper say:
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.
Amplification Powerhouse in pedalboard form
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.
Comprehensive professional features
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 (power amp required) 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.
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.
