Kemper Releases Free Profiler OS 6.0 Upgrade

The update includes a pair of studio-grade ambient reverbs.

Hamburg, Germany (July 16, 2019) -- Kemper just made Profiler OS 6.0 available for the acclaimed Kemper Profiler. This new version closes the "big studio machine"-grade reverb effects cycle, making the unique and creative sound design reverbs Ionosphere and Formant Reverbs available to all owners of a Kemper Profiler for free.

Formant Reverb adds formant filters to the existing Profiler Cirrus Reverb to give the reverb tail more color, and a very distinctive, choir-like sound. The main purpose of the Formant Reverb, however, is not to create a realistic choir sound, but to give it a certain character, making it sound more like a synthesizer or Mellotron. The formants also help the reverb cut through the mix, even at moderate volume levels.

The Ionosphere Reverb is based on the existing Profiler Cirrus Reverb and Profiler Formant Reverb. Featuring the finest pitch and shimmer reverbs, it builds on the concept and takes it to brand new territories. Two crystal pitch shifters are embedded into the reverb, allowing to create effects akin to orchestral strings and synth-like sounds.

In contrast to regular shimmer reverbs, the Ionosphere Reverb comprises an advanced signal structure that allows for pitch buildup settings independent of the reverb time setting. This allows to create gentle buildups, or even steady pitch shifts, with long reverb times that don’t build up.

Version 6.0 of the Kemper Profiler OS is available immediately and for free from the Kemper website.
