...this is where a "dislike" button would come in handy.
The aesthetics grow on you quite quickly once you realize that it was designed primarily to be intuitive to use. Navigating it is an absolute breeze because of this.
I have the rackmount. I'm not a fan of the aesthetics of the toaster, but, in some ways, I think it was laid out a bit better. I guess that the trade-off between having a tighter, more compact unit, that looks like typical rack gear, vs a table-top toaster.
But, yes, it can be as simple/intuitive as you want, or it can be mind-boggling difficult. The thing is, once you learn the inside-out tech of it. everything is easier.
Still, you can get by learning none of that, but, why wouldn't you want to be able to tap into as many of the features that you can possibly use?
So true. I've had mine for about five years now and still haven't dug into all of the deeper features. I have presets of my preferred pre and post-amp blocks that I use most of the time, and only a handful of presets have been tweaked to utilize the morphing feature. I'm definitely not a "power user" at this point in the game, it's more of a "turn it on and start playing" thing for me.
Once the editor is released I will probably find the motivation to dig deeper into the unit. Ideally, I should dedicate an entire day to building performances around specific guitars, but again motivation...
oh, I'm still a n00b... ...
I played around w/ profiling my 1 watt JVM (I sent you), but, I haven't played w/ that since & would actually have to revisit how to do it again...
I'm still clumsy w/ the effects, etc. If I can get it to sound good while playing, that's the main thing. One of these days (I keep telling myself that) I'm going to dive deep into it & do some serious messing w/ it, along w/ the manual & some videos...
He would at least have one in his bedroom if he were still animated.
Sold mine, bought a helix.
Helix is fine. Much easier to use, better fx. Doesn't sound as good though.
There’s a new Kemper being released -on Monday I think.
On Facebook. A new floor Kemper?
looks like the editor app...
That, but it seems that theres a new Kemper too.
Yep, and the speculation is that it's a floor unit.
This is where greed takes over. Thats looks great!!
The rumours circulating all weekend at Summer NAMM are true: Kemper’s new Profiler floorboard has been spotted on the Instagram account of guitarist Jakob Schulze from the German band Swiss & Die Andern!
Kemper “Profiler Floor” seen in the wild
The image shows Jakob holding what we presume is the new Kemper Profiler Floor (or whatever it’s going to be called). It was taken at a rehearsal room during load in for a show at North Sea Deichbrand Festival. The Instagram post was up on his account only briefly – luckily I managed to pull a copy before it was hastily removed (presumably at Kemper’s behest).
Kemper Profiler “Floor”: click to enlarge!
I’m guessing this was a prototype unit out on loan for testing and customer feedback. We can see the overall look of the thing, and it certainly looks weighty. Unfortunately, the image is a bit too blurry to see the labels for the knobs and switches. But you can clearly see “Profiler” on the top, so we assume this is a full-on floor-based version of the existing head and rack units.
Remote plus Rack Profiler?
There are a lot of footswitches (looks like 14, including one labelled Tap). In fact the bottom bit looks like the Profiler Remote, with what’s probably the Rack Profiler joined onto the top. But if the top bit is the Rack Profiler, the interface is very different, with different buttons (presumably backlit). It will be interesting to see what the usability will be like here. The two additional footswitches on the top right could be for scrolling through onscreen pages or parameters on the fly.
The LCD screen is poking out behind Jakob’s arm, but we can’t see how big it is. Looks similar in size to the screens on the existing amps, but without the Remote’s protective bar below the screen. It looks like there will be plenty of I/O, with lots of 1/4″ jack inputs and outputs, as well as XLR connectors.
The big questions are: How much of the full Profiler is in this unit? And what will it cost? The official announcement is only days away, so not long to wait now.

Will the used price of the 'old' Kempers...
(You know - the ones that look like toasters/radiograms)
...come down or not ???
Askin' for a friend.
Probably not, as the floor unit isn’t displacing them in the product line. In fact, there has been a bit of speculation that the floor may be able to be integrated with another Kemper to add to the functionality, which would probably have an interesting impact on the used market.
This is a beautiful looking unit. And to think I was contemplating buying a fugly Axe FX8 recently.
