What is the Kemper Profiler?
The Kemper Profiler is an electronic device which, when properly connected to an amplifier, is able to acquire its tonal and dynamic characteristics. These are then stored into a small (about 4 kB) file, which describes the "DNA" of the amp. This operation is called profiling. Once created a profile, the Profiler can be used as any preamp, and is able to sound exactly like the amp at the settings it has been profiled. This is great news in itself, but the Profiler is able to host several hundreds of profiles in its memory and, in general, to load an unlimited number of different profiles. This gives the user access to thousands of different, even rare or unique amps.
The Profiler provides a sound and feel never seen before in digital guitar amp simulations. There are many resources (free and commercial) to get profiles of many famous and rare tube amps. So it's not only for those who want to profile their own amps.
Currently there are 5 incarnations of the Kemper Profiler hardware in total:
