Kemper Profiler on loan - I put this little track together

Submitted by PJH on Mon, 11/26/2018 - 03:18

I was given the Kemper Profiler on load for a few weeks to try out in my studio. Wow! It was outstanding. We were busy with a recording session at the time and I was so impressed that I decided to use it exclusively in the session. It turned out looking like a Kemper demo but I think that you'll agree - the tone was pretty convincing. I had to give it back to it's owner this weekend and I'm going to miss it. Oh well...

I also had two friends help out with the track: Larry Rose - Drums and Percussion and Dave Sharp Hammond C3.

The guitars went direct through the Kemper, I used a Marshall 1969 50 profile for all the guitars.

The Hammond was recorded with two mics on the Leslie horn and the drums were a collection of mics - D112 on the kick, SM57s on the Snare and Toms and Behringer B1s on the Hi Hat and Overheads. I Like the B1s because they're quite bright sounding.

The acoustic gtr was recorded with an SE2200H and the Bass went direct through the Line 6 Helix. My DAW is Cakewalk by Bandlab (used to be called SONAR). My audio interface is a MOTU 16A.

Cheers

Peter.

Thanks Stevie,

I've since bought a Kemper and have made my own profiles of my rig (pedals and amp). I was blown away when I compared the captured profile to the real thing. I was so impressed that I made two short clips to demonstrate just how close this gets in feel and tone.
