Kemper intros Profiler Firmware Version 3.0

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jan 22, 2015 - comment 0 comments

Kemper has announced Profiler Firmware Version 3.0, the next level of its acclaimed Profiling technology, which now allows for profiling the guitar amps’ output independently from the connected guitar cabinet.

Kemper Profler

This opens up a whole new world of possibilities. Guitar players can profile their favorite amp sound and afterwards play thru a neutral power amp or the Profiler’s built in Class D amp into a guitar cabinet with the exact tone and behavior of their original tube amp. It also allows for freely combining “Direct Amp Profiles” with individually profiled cabs or imported impulse responses. The result is a complete Profile that can run a physical guitar cabinet onstage for monitoring and simultaneously feed the virtual guitar-speaker sound to the main PA.
Furthermore the new Firmware supports the tight integration of the Profiler Remote control pedal, featuring the smoothest preset switching available, a 30 second Looper and an incredible new Rig Pack created in cooperation with producer legend Michael Wagener in Nashville, Michael Britt of Lonestar and with renowned Profile vendor The Amp Factory.

More than 50 new Factory Profiles
The new Rig Packs contain a selection of “Merged Profiles”, created with the new direct profiling technology. Kemper have spent some significant profiling time with studio legend Michael Wagener at his Nashville based Wireworld studios and have profiled everything from legendary preamps, amps and cabinets that have been used on numerous platinum selling records.

Michael Britt is the guitarist with the Nashville based platinum band Lonestar and has created a great collection of profiles which were already showcased by Pete Thorn in this awesome video:

The Amp Factory collection consists of amps like Redplate, Clean Blackface, Driven Tweed, Fender Tweed Deluxe 58, Toneking Metro, Evil Robot, d/13 jtr37, Carr Roamer, Two Rock Bionyx and Marshall Jtm45.

Understanding Direct Profiling
The Kemper profiling technology has already had an incredible impact in the guitarists’ community for being able to capture the sound and feel of the classic guitar rig: Tube Amp/ Cabinet/ Microphone. These profiles are called “Studio Profiles”.

Now with Direct Profiling Kemper have gone even further and are able to capture the sound of a tube-amp including its power-amp separately from the cab – even when the cabinet load is active. This works by tapping the sound exactly where it hits the speaker cabinet: The speaker output! As high voltage and high wattage are present, a dedicated DI is required. This specialized DI box is capable of scaling down the tube power amp voltage to a line-level signal, suitable for the Profiler, on a XLR output jack. The high-power signal is forwarded to the speaker cabinet through a different output jack.

What is the purpose of this when the sound of the speaker will not be captured in the Profile? The purpose is to capture the amp including the complex impedance behavior of the speaker. This method captures those often discussed interactions between the power tube-amp and the connected speaker cabinet. When the Profile is played back through the Profiler’s built-in class D amp, or an external solid state power amp, it will recreate the same impedance situation to the connected speaker-cabinet. This is the key to making the built-in power-amp sound like a real tube power-amp.

The Direct Amp Profile can later be merged with the respective cabinet portion of a Studio Profile. Alternatively, Direct Amp Profiles can be paired with arbitrary cabinet impulse-responses, imported by our CabMaker 2.0 software. The result is a complete Profile that can run a physical guitar- cabinet onstage for monitoring, and simultaneously feed the virtual guitar-speaker sound to the main PA.

The Kemper Profiler Firmware 3.0 is available for download free of charge for all registered owners of a Kemper Profiler. It will be available later in Q1, 2015.

Balance Mastering releases free Teufelsberg NSA listening tower impulse responses

Tuefelsberg NSA Listening Tower Impulse Responses

Balance Mastering has announced the relesae of Teufelsberg NSA Listening Tower Impulse Responses, a free set of reverb impulse responses allowing you to use the acoustics of the main listening tower at the former NSA compound, Teufelsberg, in your own productions.

Prior to the fall of the Berlin wall the compound was run by the American and British military with the main objective being to intercept and process any Soviet and Eastern Bloc communications as part of the ECHELON intelligence gathering network. You can find some excellent historical information in the links below, including a micro-documentary made by Vice in 2010.

We’ve recorded the impulse responses with great care and mastered them to be useful in a wide variety of situations. There are six (quite different) variations to experiment with and apply to your source audio. Finding an opportunity to approach the towers and record the impulses was tough, not to mention having to climb and squeeze through a tiny gap to reach the uppermost tower, so we hope you enjoy incorporating a piece of Cold War history into your music and audio productions.

The pack is available to download in 24bit 96kHz WAV format. Additional sample rates and bit depths are available in an advanced pack.

Wavesfactory updates 1850 Pipe Organ Pro for Kontakt

Wavesfactory has announced an update for its 1850 Pipe Organ Pro sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Wavesfactory 1850 Pipe Organ Pro

We first launched “1850 Pipe Organ” on September, 2011. Containing both free and pro versions. On the Pro version there was basically 2 features that quite a few users wanted to be included: reverb control and IRs of the church. So here they are:

  • Reverb control, depending on the volume of each rank.
  • 4 custom IR (impulse responses) from the church where the library was recorded in. Close, mid, far and balcony perspectives / distances. Recorded with a Neumann KU-100 binaural microphone.
  • Minor bug fixes and folder organization improved.

Load the different IRs into your favorite convolution reverb and you’ll be able to hear your tracks as if they were recorded together with 1850 Pipe Organ.

1850 Pipe Organ is available for purchase for 19.95 EUR. The update is free for previous customers.
