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.

Premier Guitar doesn’t often review anniversary edition instruments—most of them being marketing exercises in disguise. But the Squier 40th Anniversary Stratocaster genuinely seems to embody much about where Squier has been and the reliable source for quality, affordable, and, yes, beautiful guitars they have become.

Considering the amount of time I’ve spent (here and elsewhere) talking about and lusting after Gretsch hollowbody guitars, it’s taken me a remarkably long time to end up with a big Bigsby-outfitted box I truly love.
