They were created by professional guitarists, engineers and producers in studios all over the world. Right out of the box, you will find classic tones of studio standards as well as profiles of highly sought-after amplifiers, some costing many times the price of the Kemper Profiler.
Kemper will be working tirelessly to create new profiles for you to download for free from their website. All the profiles created are extracted from real amplifiers and cabinets, each with a distinct personality of its own. To take the profiles, they employ the exact same techniques an engineer would use to create a great guitar tone in the studio, so you can be sure to receive the most authentic sounds from a digital guitar amp, ever!
If you happen to have access to tube amps, feel free to make your own profiles. You will probably feel more familiar with profiles of your own gear, than with those other people have made.
It might be also a nice idea to hire a professional studio for a day or two, where you can create your signature profiles with the help of an experienced sound engineer. You then have the luxury of being able to use these profiles wherever you like, and with no time constraints.
If you are tracking in a studio, you should profile the guitar amps that you record with. Later, you simply take these profiles with you and know that you can recreate the exact sound of the recording, both in the rehearsal studio and live on stage.
If you are looking for a particular sound, search the Rig Exchange database on our website, and download profiles and rigs from fellow users
Play completely different amp models rather than just switching amp channels on stage! Imagine playing the verse with a sparkling profile of a 1965 black-faced 2x12" combo, done in a premiere studio in Nashville, while burning through the solo with a hot-rodded, British 100Watts monster, driving a 4x12" cab you just profiled last week in your buddy's rehearsal space. How cool is that?
