Welcome to Valve Theory profiling
. An online webstore for the Kemper profiling amplifier
the single coil pack is suited for strats, teles and all splittable humbuckers. It won't produce good results on Humbuckers due to all SC tweaks I took. However, P90 guitars should really shine on these.
I took a different approach than most profesionnal by using multiple & specifically selected gear ( ATM SS11, FredAmp JCM800 , a Mesa boogie Subway Blues combo , as well as a JTM30 Marshall for most of the CAB part) :
I took most of the time to setup the best single coil tones out of these boxes, that lead me to this ultimate collection. It's a plug and play solution for you SC guitars.
It's a collection of 28 rigs - you'll find an audio demo above. The demo pack
cointains 3 profiles from this pack.About the demo
: all samples are raw spdif except parts with drums are post EQd ( to represent a mix context). I did not cheat on these as you may identify huge dynamics on the WAV form , big basses and flaws in play , all of these mostly disapear with a right mix. Most clips feature a single tracked part, then a double tracked , then a lead and a full mix.
IF a clean tone lacks of punch , just push the gain a bit , it will liven up your tone.
It' best to disengage all locks before trying my rigs.
a few details about some profiles ( will be updated later )
dry clean : best suited for very clean parts where the guitar cuts the mix - takes FX very well - great for recording, blues
full clean : favorite among beta testers, this one sounds really great and open on it's own, great for live & chording and all sorts of tones - Be sure to play around with your guitar vol pot on this one.
bright clean : specially designed for fast funk chording with treble enhanced. Cuts the mix pretty well
dimed clean : this one is used for blues or jazz, for riffs, leads licks and darker chordal work
jazz : similar to dimed and optimized for jazz guitar with specific tone stack and FX.
crunch1 : lots of personality in this one, fender territory for all kinds of tones : blues, rock'n roll, funk ... Adjust the gain until you get a satisfying crunch
crunch2 : a bit more driven and a bit more tailored for leads, but will still allow strumming
crunch3 : another color in crunch
drive1 : cranked amp rhythm or lead tone, lots of growl and a typical British 70's soul. Up the gain to get the needed drive
drive2 : lots of overdrive on this monster, the most modern tone you'll get from the AMT. Do not touch the gain on this one : it's much better to adjust the guitar volume instead. This way you'll lower the drive AND keep the great punch of this typical Marshall tone.
Jimi : this one is designed to mimic super-cranked Hendrix's tone, while still having some great clean rhythm with a low volume pot on the guitar. Best used on a neck start pickup. Included FX are 2 types of dist. pedal (they also work together) and a great rotary sim. Favorite amongst the beta testers
Voxy : typical vox vibe perfect for old time rock'n roll and early Who/Led Zep stuff, also great for blues. There is a special spring verb setting on this one.
lead1&2 : full, warm, articulate and punchy, very similar to boogie mark series lead tones. If you lower your guitar vol pot you will travel in time : 8/9 90's , 7 80's , 5 70's ... You'll also get great modern US driven tone by removing the delay and lowering the vol pot. on the guitar
