Welcome to this page dedicated to profiles for the Kemper Profiling Amp (KPA). Free Kemper profiles will be presented in this page : the free profiles themselves are available on the Kemper Rig Exchange platform, directly accessible from your KPA. Paid or Patreon sponsored profiles will be downloadable from overdriven.fr. These profiles are captured by me, using multiple guitar amplifiers, cabs and pedals, in home-studio conditions.
EOD88 – Fatboy Demon profiles
These are my first profiles created with the Kemper : they are using the main distorted channel of a Randall® EOD 88, with and without the boost engaged, with various tone and gain settings. To get more information about the EOD 88, you can check my review of this amp here.
5 free profiles are made available :
- EOD 88 Demon 02 : boost off, aggressive tone
- EOD 88 Demon 03 : boost on, full tone
- EOD 88 Demon 04 : boost on, gain 5.5, aggressive tone
- EOD 88 Demon 05 : boost on, gain 5.5, full tone
- EOD 88 Demon 06 : boost on, gain 5.5, full tone
The cab used is a 2*12 Zilla® Fatboy, equipped with two Hesu® Demon speakers. The profiles are KPA complete studio profiles, refined after the KPA capture. The mic used is the DYN-US-6, in P12. To know more about mic positions, check the main IR download page here. The profiles were created and tweaked using an E-Flat guitar with an EMG 57 and a drop D guitar with a SH-4 pickup. You may need to adjust the settings (gain, tone, low-cut) depending on your pickups and the tuning you use. I get the best results with the Kemper Green Drive, but the Precision Drive can also work well (for example EMG 81 with Attack 1).
I re-tubed completely my EOD 88 last summer (2021) : the preamp tubes are custom selected 12AX7 tubes, and the KT88 tubes were also changed (from Ruby to JJ KT88).
To access these profiles from your Kemper, either download them from the Kemper web site or just use/import them from the Kemper Rig Manager software (Rig Exchange) : filter on the author name “DavidA-overdriven” or on the rig name “EOD88 Demon”.
Each profile use the following blocks :
- Green Drive
- Noise Gate
- Studio eq block (where only the low-cut filter is used).
Some samples below : the AHB3 samples are drop-b, the EMG57 samples are e-flat. Drop-B samples use a more aggressive low-cut in the Studio EQ block. Some samples use KPA Air Chorus and Single Delay.
Adjust carefully the low-cut or use an aggressive OD to get more definition, as the lows/low-mids are quite present.
