KEMPER, manufacturer of the industry-leading tone profiling amplifier, has released the new PROFILER™ Operating System 5.5.2, which incorporates a package of powerful features and add-ons, including 18 specially selected Celestion Impulse Responses. With a rich history in creating the world’s renowned classic guitar tones, Celestion debuted their acclaimed line of digitally downloadable Impulse Responses (IRs) last year, which are available for audition and purchase at CelestionPlus.
The classic Celestion guitar speaker tone Impulse Responses which are included with the new Operating System 5.5.2 include select samples of A-Type, Celestion Blue, Celestion Cream, Classic Lead 80, G12H Anniversary, G12-35XC, G12H-150 Redback, G12M Creamback, G12M Greenback, Neo Creamback, and others, which have already been pre-formatted for use with the Kemper system. Additional Celestion IR tones available for download at CelestionPlus can easily be formatted for the PROFILER using Cab Maker.
The KEMPER PROFILER™ is the leading-edge digital tone profiling guitar amplifier, praised by guitarists the world over. The Profiler uses proprietary digital technology to accurately model any physical guitar or bass amplifier and associated speaker cabinet, allowing users to create a profile of their own amps as well as download the rigs of anyone in the Kemper community who chooses to share, and store them to memory. It’s a true guitar preamplifier with real gain and tone knobs ready to plug into a sound system, or recording system.
Celestion Impulse Responses are the perfect complement to the KEMPER PROFILER*, as the digital downloads are available to any musician who might not have the space or budget for a stable of speaker cabs. And even for those who do, Celestion IRs offer flexibility and unlimited creativity for the user, enabling them to save favorite tones for later use as well as audition models before purchasing physical speakers.
For all Celestion IRs, five individual IR varieties of each tone are available for download, which correspond to each of 5 separate types of cabinet, including: 1×12 (open back), 1×12 (closed back), 2×12 (open back), 2×12 (closed back) and 4×12 (closed back.) All IR models can be purchased either separately, as an entire collection for a savings of over 50%, or as part of a Pick & Mix option. Celestion’s Pick & Mix option features IR combinations of either 3 or 5 cabinets from the company’s full range of IRs, offering customers flexibility and value pricing in building their personal IR library.
