[NAMM] Kemper Profiling Amplifier
Kemper GmbH has announced the new Kemper Profiling Amplifier, to be unveiled at the NAMM Show 2011 in Los Angeles.
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier is a new concept for guitar amplification in the digital domain. Following the idea that every guitar player should be able to bring his personal sound of the tube amp setup he owns into a reproducible format, The Kemper Profiling Amplifier is designed to “learn” the sonic behavior of a guitar amplifier and offer the tone and feel the player knows from his “real” amp. According to the manufacturer, "now there will be a profile available of basically any sonic condition the tube amp setup can provide."
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier comes with profiles of classic tube amps, including the classic speaker cabinets which are a part of the profiling result.
The Kemper Profiling Amplifier comes as a lunchbox size device with the professional connections for home, studio and on stage use. It is completed with a stomp box section, a master FX section and a set of parameters for shaping the amp profiles further from classic architecture to modern.
At booth #6900 in Hall A Kemper GmbH have a ready to go profiling setup installed, consisting of a tube amplifier with various classic tube amp architectures, connected to an isolation cab with a celestion vintage 30 speaker that is miked up with the standard SM 57. The guitar is connected to the tube amp via the Kemper Profiling Amplifier and the mic signal goes back into the mic input of the Profiling Amplifier.
