Kemper PROFILER Player – Small, affordable new PROFILER
The Kemper PROFILER Player has just been announced and offers amp tones and studio-grade FX in a small footprint. Packing is a host of great features, all perfect for guitarists on the move.
Kemper PROFILER Player
The Kemper PROFILER Player packs a lot of punch into its diminutive footprint. This latest product offers the full arsenal of Kemper amp tones, identical to the amp section of its famous Big Brothers and it loads any amp Profile from the vast library of existing free and commercial Profiles. It also packs in selected FX settings, IR loading, and switching capabilities.
This also means that it can utilise the new Liquid Profiling tech, the KEMPER FX and give users the same level of tone as the larger siblings.
This new Player offers a well-curated selection, including 136 different FX settings from the Kemper PROFILER FX’s 444 plus FX presets. These can be arranged in 4 effect blocks in addition to the amplifier stack. With two effects placed “pre” the amp stack, and another two “post” the amp.
It features three freely assignable foot switches and a host of control knobs and buttons. Then for digging deeper into every aspect of the FX, it uses Rig Manager. Rig Manager allows control over guitar amps and in-depth editing of all parameters. It works on iPhones, iPads, Android Phones, Android Tablets, Kindle Fire, macOS, and Windows.
Stage & Studio
It can also work with one or two Kemper Power Cabinets and will work as a 4/4 audio interface. Making it perfect for both stage and studio.
