Kemper Profiler Stage
The Kemper profiling technique allows the creation of a very precise sonic image (profile) of an existing amplifier configuration (including cabinet and microphone pickup). Thanks to the many internal processing options such as various ground effect emulations (up to 4 at a time), master effects, equaliser, gain, amp definition, power sagging etc., the sound created can then be processed far beyond the possibilities of the original amplifier. However, the Kemper Profiling Amplifier is also already delivered with a large number of outstanding amplifier profiles, which is why it is not absolutely necessary to create your own profiles. This makes it possible from the first time to exactly reproduce the sound of your own amplifier, to modify it (if desired) and to have it available for practising, in the studio or on stage without a lot of lugging around.

The new generation of guitar amplifiers!
For a long time now, many guitar amp manufacturers have been on a quest to pack the sound of the world’s most legendary amplifiers into a single unit – none of them with any real success until, in 2012, Kemper opened a new chapter in amp history with its Profiling Amplifier. Since then, the entirely new and unique “profiling” technology has allowed the sound of any desired amplifier to be recorded with a microphone and then further edited and shaped to suit the player’s taste – in other words, the sounds of the world’s most legendary amplifiers can now be combined. The Kemper’s high-performance electronics and high-quality DSP effects, extensive routing options, wide selection of cab and microphone models, and intuitive user interface – styled after that of a real guitar amplifier – let you revive these legendary sounds, enhance them with contemporary features, and store them permanently.
A Kemper amp in a floorboard format
The Kemper Profiler Stage delivers the Kemper concept in a floorboard version and is also the newest addition to the Kemper family. The search for that perfect amplifier finally ends here thanks to Kemper’s patented profiling technology, which not only gives guitarists countless amp models at their fingertips – it also lets them directly record and preserve the sonic characteristics of any amplifier they want: In other words, the boundaries of flexibility have now been completely re-drawn. Innumerable other digital editing options, which include substituting different speaker or cabinet types for the one used in the original recording, adding high-quality effects, and a wide variety of internal and external connection and routing possibilities make the Kemper Profiler Stage without a doubt one of the most flexible guitar amplifiers on the market.
An ultra-flexible floorboard for tone-chasers with pro aspirations
The Kemper Profiler Stage comes in a stage-ready floorboard format and is ready for whatever challenges are in store, so there can be no doubt that this is a thoroughly professional piece of equipment. Fans of old vintage treasures can now harness the sound and characteristics of the originals – which are usually ruinously expensive and often very rare. This powerhouse amp will delight tone-chasers and sound nerds alike with its extensive range of features and win over recording musicians with its impressive connectivity, which allows it to replace numerous guitar amps in the studio and ultimately save everyone a large amount of time and effort when it comes to cabling and miking.
About Kemper Amps
German firm Kemper Amps, or rather its founder Christoph Kemper, is no stranger to the music industry. His very first product, the virtual-analogue Access Virus synthesizer, was far ahead of its time and brought the company both unexpected success and an impressive reputation within the music profession. Continuing the momentum of this success, the company then developed the “Profiler” technology, which allows an astonishingly realistic reproduction of the sound of a miked amplifier to be made and thus represents the dawn of a new era in digital amplifier simulation. This technology is currently available in different variants of the Kemper Profiler system: As a basic head, as a top with a powerful Class-D power amp integrated, as a rack-mountable unit, and even as a floorboard.
The Profiler Stage is up for anything
Whether it’s in the studio, running through a power amp and cabinet(s) as part of your backline on stage, or in your living room for some quiet practice, the Kemper Profiler Stage’s outstanding flexibility provides a new level of potential that knows no limits other than those of the player’s imagination. The pedal’s extensive connectivity is by no means limited to a handful of outputs for a power amp. Those are of course included, but more interesting still are the digital interfaces – which include an S/PDIF input and output and two USB outputs – since these make it easy to record the Profiler Stage’s signal to a DAW with zero loss in the studio. The Kemper Profiler Stage comes with presets of many of the best amplifiers of all time already installed, however, so your quest for the perfect tone can begin right away.
In the spotlight: Profiling
In fundamental terms, the Kemper Profiler is primarily a highly specialised measuring device which, by means of a complicated algorithm, is capable of precisely replicating the tonal characteristics of a signal chain. Generally, this chain first and foremost includes the amplifier that is to be emulated, the cabinet to which this is connected, and the microphone that is placed in front of it. This standard setup can additionally be expanded by adding pedals, which can also be profiled as part of the chain if desired. An „amp only“ profile can of course be created, however, by connecting the amplifier to a DI box instead of a conventional speaker cabinet. To determine the characteristics of the individual signal chain, the Kemper then sends various measurement signals through the amplifier that is connected, on the basis of which it then creates a so-called “profile” – which even professional musicians have difficulty in distinguishing from the original in terms of sound and dynamics. The user can subsequently customise this profile by fine-tuning a range of different parameters before naming and saving it. In this way, players can archive their entire amplifier collection virtually without restriction and take it with them to gigs and into the studio.
