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.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
