Kemper has announced the release of a new operating system update for its Profiler digital guitar amplifier and all-in-one effects processor.

Profiler OS 8.7 comes with immediate support of the new Profiler Rig Manager for iPadOS and iOS. Both the previously released Rig Manager iPad and the new iPhone version feature wireless control of the Profiler Stage, Head, and Rack. This adds another dimension of parameter editing and fine-tuning of guitar tone at home, in the studio, at rehearsal, and on stage.

The Rig Manager for iOS connects to the PROFILER Stage’s onboard WiFi Chip, either directly or via WPS and a local router. The connections to PROFILER Head and Rack are supported via a local router. With this setup, even multiple PROFILERs just can get connected utilizing LAN cables to a wireless router. Is the iPad connected to the router via WiFi all the connected PROFILERS can be edited wirelessly.

Everybody knows that fine-tuning guitar tone, especially in rehearsing and live situations, works best when the player is standing in the sweet spot of the speakers, where all the magic happens. Rig Manager for iOS supports exactly that, in a portable yet powerful editor solution.

You can add, swap and modify effects using the intuitive graphical user interface. You only need one hand to optimize your PROFILER performance while the other one is holding that power chord. It was never easier to get the best tones out of the PROFILER.

The Profiler OS version 8.7 for all Profiler models is available from the Kemper website for free. The Rig Manager for iOS is available at the App Store, also free.
