As its name suggests, the Kemper Profiler PowerRack is a digital processor that profiles the acoustic properties inherent in the interplay between a particular guitar amplifier and cabinet. Through capturing that information, it is able to accurately reproduce the original tone of the amp with all of its details. By using this preamp, guitarists can achieve maximum portability by digitizing (“profiling”, as Kemper calls it) their setups for later recall through a single conveniently-rackmountable unit.
The profiling process is accomplished by inserting a tube amplifier into the Profiler and pressing the “Record” button. The unit then sends test signals between the amplifier at the microphone in front of the cabinet to establish an accurate profile of the original tone. Once the profile is recorded into the Profiler, it can be played back and fine-tuned with effects, EQ, and various stomp pedal models.
The Profiler Remote is a custom foot controller specially designed for interfacing with Kemper’s Profiler Modeling Preamp. The Remote features an ergonomic display and simple layout that allows users to program effortlessly without any confusion. The Remote utilizes five switches and an internal banking system that allows for sophisticated recall of several amplifier/cabinet profiles. There are also dedicated buttons to access the Profiler’s tuner, tap tempo, and a looper effect.
The Remote connects to the Profiler via Ethernet cable, and up to four can be chained to the Profiler to afford control over multiple parameters.
