Kemper has really upped their game in the last few months, first by offering a free Michael Britt Rig Pack and now a Modern Metal Rig Pack by Lars Luettge. This one features all of the greats used for high gain mayhem.
Kemper GmbH released a modern metal Rig Pack by Lars Lüttge for the Kemper Profiler. This new free Rig Pack for all owners of the acclaimed Kemper Profiler features 50 profiles of the most sought-after guitar amps for metal and rock.
All the amps were profiled utilizing the direct profiling method (merged(*) profiles) that captures the sonic behavior of the amp and the cabinet independently catering for the possibility to later vary the cabinets used between profiles and also for using the powered Profiler in conjunction with the corresponding cabinets in the studio or on stage.
Here is the list of the profiled amplifiers*:
- Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier – 1992 Rev F

About Lars Luettge
Profile creators Lars Lüttge and his partner Frank Kölbl are known for “in your face” Metal and Rock profiles. Lars and Frank were the first commercial Profile sellers releasing merged(*) Profiles that work equally good in recording and live situations. The Amp packs they release usually cover anything a specific Amp can do. All channels in various Gain stages, unboosted + boosted with various cabs. That´s one of the reasons they are so popular and have been used by many famous Metal acts over the years like Katatonia, Eskimo Callboy, Benighted, Any given Day and many more.
about merged(*)profiles / direct profiling
Direct Profiling captures 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.
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 the CabMaker 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.
