Other updates include a new version of Rig Manager, wattage meter, studio EQ controls, and more!
Kemper today announce the immediate availability of PROFILER OS 8.2, featuring a complete new FUZZ Drive System for the acclaimed KEMPER PROFILER and much more.
Primitive, for some even distinctive, gnarly-ness in guitar tone has become popular again. Fuzz distortion is back as a tonal and stylistic statement in contemporary music production. And there is also the movement and demand for authenticity and the praise for the go-to classic Fuzz pedals: Jimi's Fuzz face, Tycobrahe Octavia, Rocket Octavia, the likes.
Kemper now has taken the time and looked at all the classic pedals and checked every nuance and tonal detail to build a revolutionary FUZZ System for the PROFILER. That delivers the most important Fuzz tones of the trade and beyond. And, as it happens all in just one device, guitarists can morph seamlessly through the history of Fuzz tone, from the 50s to today - and even tomorrow!
To make access to the classics as easy as possible the FUZZ Drive comes with a set of presets that take you straight to the basic tones of Fuzz Face, Octavias, etc. Guitarists can take it from here into yet completely unexplored tonal territory by cranking the parameters and adding further destruction FX from the PROFILER's crusher arsenal.
With the also new offering of a vast array of Factory Presets, guitarists now have immediate access to not only the entire world (and beyond) of FUZZ tones but also any FX type of the trade. Just spend some quality time with your favorite guitar and the presets to get inspired, and just play!
For supporting the new KEMPER Powered Kabinets the KEMPER Kone Menu now also features a new Wattage Meter and a comfortable boost for the outputs to get the extra kick with external power amps for driving KEMPER Power Kabinets and other Kone equipped cabs.
Also with the new Studio Equalizer parameters, Steep Low and Steep High the filters can be switched from 1st to 2nd order, and the expanded gain controls expanded to +/- 18 dB for extra bite and surgical tone shaping.
PROFILER OS 8.2 comes also with the new Rig Manager 3.2 (Mac & Win), both are a free download for all owners of a KEMPER PROFILER from the Kemper Website.

Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
Origin Effects introduce the new M-EQ DRIVER mid booster & drive pedal. Based on a vintage Pultec studio EQ, this unique pedal offers a range of mid-focused tones, from a subtle mid boost to thick, resonant overdrive. Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
A choice of three mid-range frequencies ensures that you can boost just the right part of your guitar signal and, when pushed harder, can elicit a range of saturation from a classic “mid-hump” overdrive to fierce “cocked wah” distortion. Thanks to the Adaptive Circuitry, the high-end roll-off of the Cut control is reduced as the pedal cleans up. This allows for a smooth transition from warm overdrive to bright clean tones in response to playing dynamics or guitar volume knob changes.
Introducing... M-EQ DRIVER || Mid Booster & Drive
Built-in the UK to the highest standards, the M-EQ DRIVER continues the Origin Effects tradition of vintage, studio-inspired tones in modern guitar pedals. The Origin Effects M-EQ DRIVER is available now from Origin Effects dealers worldwide.
RRP: 259 GBP (Inc VAT) / 319 USD (Ex TAX)

The new finish, according to Lava Music, is “inspired by the beauty of the golden hour,” a shining time just before sunset and after sunrise when photographers covet to capture stunning pictures.
With bright and warm golden hues, the new finish adds a brilliant metallic glow to the surface of Lava ME 3, complementing its AirSonic 2 carbon fiber unibody which features L3 Preamp with FreeBoost 2.0, delivers industry-leading sounds by breakthrough acoustic technologies, and houses a multi-touch display powered by Lava-developed HILAVA system.
Speaking of the HILAVA system, Lava Music also added four new effects: Nebula, Desert Rose, Cassette, and Edge of Breakup. As unique as their names sound, they are very much different from what we normally know about effects. Programmed into the HILAVA system, each of the four is powered by the company’s latest ArctanDrive algorithm and incorporates effects like Pitch Shift, Delay, and Reverb. And every one of those incorporated sub-effects comes with various parameters that players can adjust to design unique, overdriven sounds by just tapping on the multi-touch display. That said, those effects enable users to play with overdriven tone on an acoustic-electric guitar without even plugging in any external gear.
