Default Mint Kemper Profiler Stage!

Hey everybody. I'm selling my mint condition Kemper Profiler Stage. It's an awesome beast but I want to try out the quad cortex. To purchase, please pm me, or, e-mail me at: [email protected]

It's never been out of my smoke free home, I purchased it new from Sweetwater less than a year and a half ago, the OS is up to date, and, I have the product box and original shipping box as well. On top of that, I can include a flash drive with thousands of additional rigs/profiles! A lot were free but I did buy a bunch of packs as well;probably $300 worth. There is a lot here! It would take weeks to audition all of these. There is a free desktop editor for Mac and windows but they also have an iPad app as the Profiler Stage has WiFi as well as USB.

$1579 firm including shipping with tracking and full insurance to the lower 48 states. I accept Apple Pay, Pay Pal f and f, or, a Sweetwater digital gift card.

Description:

Players asked, and Kemper delivered — in a big way! The Kemper Profiler Stage gives you all the performance power of a full-size Kemper rack or toaster unit in a sleek and streamlined pedalboard format. Hundreds of the most carefully replicated amps, stomps, and studio effects await you in the Profiler Stage’s stock library with thousands more available in the free Rig Exchange cloud. You can even profile your own amps and cabs for an all-access pass to your favorite tones of all time. The Profiler Stage’s soft-touch switches make stepping through Performances (songs) and toggling virtual stomps simpler than ever. Around back, stereo effects loops, MIDI remote/expression pedal integration, and plenty of digital and analog I/O make the Profiler Stage one of the most powerful performance platforms to hit the market.

Preloaded with hundreds of choice Rigs
Right out of the box, the Kemper Profiler Stage includes hundreds of mouthwatering amps, stomps, and studio effects that are just itching to be played. Connect the Profiler Stage to your cab, PA, FRFR, or interface, and you’re all set to perform and record the second this board hits your doorstep.

Infinitely expandable
Need a Tweed-y clean or a British lead for a particular session? Locating the Rig of your dreams is as simple as searching and auditioning sounds from the free Rig Exchange. These user-generated Rigs are not models — they’re real-world amps and stomps from the most elite guitar/bass setups on the planet, precisely profiled using Kemper’s patented Profiling technology.



Optional Mission Engineering expression pedal (shown) not included
Three operating modes
The streamlined Kemper Profiler Stage is a fine-tuned machine built for the performance environment. Its two performance modes equip you for any playing scenario from casual jamming to television prime time, while its profiling mode permits access to virtual realizations of your personal amp collection, even thousands of miles from your home studio.

Browser mode — Navigate and select Rigs from your stored library. You can store up to 999 profiles on your Profiler Stage and cycle through at will for instant jamming and recording inspiration.
Performer mode — Map out entire songs’ worth of Rigs (125 songs, five slots per Performance) and step through tones using the five designated switches. This is the perfect way to access verse, chorus, lead, bridge, and solo tones — just as easily as traditional stompboxes — without having to cycle through presets.
Profiler mode — Kemper’s calling card is its ability to re-create your exact amp and effects chains in the digital realm, and the Profiler Stage proves to be no exception. Bring signals in through Return 1’s TRS port to store digital snapshots of all your favorite amps/cabs/effects chains.
Impressive I/O
The Profiler Stage gives you even more I/O — two effects loops (which can be run in stereo) and four dedicated pedal inputs — to interface with your outboard guitar gear in even more impressive ways. Kemper Rigs behave just like real amps: drive the input to unlock juicer, richer overdrives, or introduce ambient effects into the loops to create breathtaking repeats and washes. With the Kemper Profiler Stage from Sweetwater, what gear you take on the road and how you use it is entirely up to you.



Kemper Profiler Stage Pedalboard Features:
Kemper’s flagship amplifier modeling processor, now with integrated remote
Three operating modes: Browser, Performer, and Profiler
Preloaded with hundreds of the most requested guitar/bass Rigs
Thousands of free Rigs available in the Rig Exchange cloud
Dedicated stomps for Rig cycling, Performance stepping, and stomp toggling
Bright display holds up to indoor/outdoor stage environment
Loaded with digital and analog I/O
Stereo effects loops for integration with your stereo effects pedals
MIDI I/O allows for remote switching
1/4" footswitch and expression pedal inputs unlock even greater hands-free performance control

I have both. I’d hold onto the Kemper until you get some time with the QC.

Could you elaborate on that a little please? I haven't actually had the chance to use the QC yet although I've heard lots of demos and have some of the Neural dsp plug ins...

There's just so much.... It's been 2 years and they haven't done much to add all the promised content. No desktop editor in sight. Plug in support even further away. Right now we're waiting for firmware 2.0 which is supposed to fix the horrible file system, but the rumor is that they still won't deliver what they promised for the new file system. They say we're getting a hybrid mode with 2.0, but it's the very basic scene/stomp or stomp/scene that Helix had 6 years ago. VERY limited midi. Not even a midi clock out. Some other essential features like the assignability of the volume knob will finally be here. Lots of other quality of life issues will remain. Essentially it appears that they're in way over their heads on the firmware and software side. 2.0 has been in beta for a while now. I'm hoping for January based on what I've heard that I can't repeat. NDSP put in its last update that they're hoping they can get it out by the end of the year. Based on what I know, I'm not sure that's possible.


The footswitches are REALLY close together and some of us are having an issue with it. The hardware is small and light. I think they only hardware issues I've had are very weak wifi connectivity (a very common issue), a ground hum with the original power supply when only connecting guitar and headphones (we've been waiting for promised replacement power bricks for over a year), and the design choice to use an optical ground. With optical ground, if you turn off the unit while it's still plugged into still powered speakers, you'll get ground hum. A solution is to put it in standby instead or turn off the speakers first. The "solution" from the company for the wifi issue is to use your phone hotspot as your wifi with the phone right next to the unit. We don't all have hotspots. I had to add a mesh unit in the same room and then keep them within a couple of feet.

ALL THAT SAID, I've kept mine for 2 years waiting for what we should have had on day one. What we have sounds and feels really good. What they promised should help a lot. But we're still waiting.

There's way more. Take a look on The Gear Page. Neural gets most of the negative comments deleted in the various facebook groups and they kick people off their fb page and discord.

Hmmmm. Those are all valid things to take into account... thanks for the feedback. I, like many others it seems, really want to be able to load plugins onto the QC. Here's hoping they sort that out!
