All I need
The Kemper Profiling Amp is the only piece of equipment any studio needs. It accurately captures the tone of any amp/ cab any guitarist can want. I have had many a guitarist come to my home studio and swear by the tone of their amp just to be blown away by the Kemper (its the tone you end up hearing on the record). Don't spend good money on one amp when you can have any amp you want with the Kemper.
For studio-work I use the unpowered "toaster"-version since 5 years (but not solely!). For live performances the rackmount version was an obvious choice. Regarding the sound of the Kemper and the accuracy of profiling an original tube-amp I have to admit that this thing is not the absolute 100%-solution in every case despite all the praise you are reading elsewhere. Still this thing is a good alternative to using a tubeamp on stage especially when you have no crew to carry your stuff around.
It's well build and the handling of the controls are almost perfect and especially the powered version makes a lot sense on stage since you can route your signal to a cabinet and the DI-box at the same time plus feeding your inear-monitoring. To integrate and control other hardware the Kemper is not as versatile as a Helix. Also the effects-section feels limited in comparison to an AxeFX. But the focus of the Kemper is basically the amping itself and based on the use of it as an amp onstage, this is pure gold.
I hate to love it.
I am your typical tubes or nothing man, I love my fender. So I borrowed a rack model off a friend already convinced this would never stand against my tube power!!! One hour later I'm sold, I hate that they are so good, but they really are, for theatre shows or pit shows this makes total sense. you can have all your best amps and amps you could never hope to own in real life, right in one small package. They are being updated all the time so they are always on the top of there game. Are they worth the money? Yes. Are they for everyone? maybe not. Do they replace a great amp ripping your face of with tone?....... thats not for me to say.
KPA for both live and studio
The Kemper PA has been my go to rig for both live and studio applications for two years now. It has been all over the US and even overseas. It is durable and provides the best tones available in any device. Solid state or tube. Nothing beats the KPA. They have top notch support staff as well. The 5 star rating only goes to Kemper. It is the benchmark for excellence.
Best Bass Amp
The Kemper can also play bass! I used it to replace all the sounds I needed previously with the Boss GT10B. The important thing is that all sounds sound better and I still can't say that I have understood all the functions or that I have already perfectly adjusted the amp. But I'm working on it!
