Kemper Profiler Now Available for iPhone

An editor app for your Kemper Profiler amp is now available on iPhone. Designed to put together custom performances and edit existing content conveniently using a Wifi connection.


The Rig Manager for iOS connects to the Profiler Stage’s onboard WiFi Chip, either directly or via WPS and a local router. The connections to Profiler Head and Rack are supported via a local router. With this setup, even multiple Profilers just can get connected utilizing LAN cables to a wireless router. Is the iPad connected to the router via WiFi all the connected Profilers can be edited wirelessly.

You can add, swap and modify effects using the intuitive graphical user interface. You only need one hand to optimize your Profiler performance while the other one is holding that power chord.

Features

  • CREATION AND MANAGEMENT of PERFORMANCES: Performances can hold up to five Rigs and prove extremely useful to live players for multiple reasons. In the upper section, you can rearrange and edit them on the fly.
  • CONTROLLING THE SIGNAL FLOW: Choose, select and edit all the effects on the signal chain. Control the amp stack, signal flow, and effects as well as the input and output section. Set up either a simple or sophisticated morph scenario in seconds. Use the spacious morph slider to simulate the movement of your pedal.
  • TURN A GENERIC RIG INTO YOUR INDIVIDUAL TONAL TREASURE: The PROFILER Rig Manager displays the currently loaded Rig. It was never easier to adjust details of the Amp Stack or try out alternative effects and settings. Just dive deep into a Rig and edit every aspect of how it sounds and how it reacts to your playing.

Need big tones in a small setup? Here’s a collection of lunchbox-sized amps that pack a punch.

Not every gig requires a pair of 4x12 cabs and a 100-watt head. (Sadly.) We’ve rounded up a handful of lunchbox-sized heads that can deliver crystal-clean tones, dirty crunch, and ripping lead tones—all in a very portable package.

John Mayall in the late ’80s, in a promo shot for his Island Records years. During his carreer, he also recorded for the Decca (with the early Bluesbreakers lineups), Polydor, ABC, DJM, Silvertone, Eagle, and Forty Below labels.

He was dubbed “the father of British blues,” but Mayall’s influence was worldwide, and he nurtured some of the finest guitarists in the genre, including Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Taylor, Harvey Mandel, Coco Montoya, and Walter Trout. Mayall died at his California home on Monday, at age 90.

John Mayall’s career spanned nearly 70 years, but it only took his first four albums to cement his legendary status. With his initial releases with his band the Bluesbreakers—1966’s Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton; ’67’s A Hard Road, with Peter Green on guitar; plus the same year’s Crusade, which showcased Mick Taylor—and his solo debut The Blues Alone, also from 1967, Mayall introduced an international audience of young white fans to the decidedly Black and decidedly American genre called blues. In the subsequent decades, he maintained an active touring and recording schedule until March 26, 2022, when he played his last gig at age 87. It was reported that he died peacefully, on Monday, in his California home, at 90.

Donner andThird Man Hardware’s $99, three-in-one analog distortion, phaser, and delay honors Jack White’s budget gear roots.

Compact. Light. Fun. Dirt cheap. Many cool sounds that make this pedal a viable option for traveling pros.

Phaser level control not much use below 1 o’clock. Repeats are bright for an analog delay. Greater range of low-gain sounds would be nice.

$99

A huge part of the early White Stripes mystique, sound, ethos, and identity was tied to guitars and amps that, at the time, you could luck into for cheap at a garage sale. These days, it’s harder to score a Crestwood Astral II, or Silvertone Twin Twelve with a part-time job in the ice cream shop. Back in the late ’90s, though, they were a source of raw, nasty sounds for less than a new, more generic guitar or amp.
