CRANK N GO PACK
The Crank n Go Pack contains 63 Studio Profiles as well as 59 of their Merged counterparts (Sometimes the merged profiles just don’t measure up or come out right). This pack is primarily for cranking up and rockin’. My main focus was getting good, thick rock tones that still retained the clarity and bite that cover everything from 70’s to 90’s rock, everything from bell bottoms to hair bands.
This pack also includes 3 Performances as well for those wanting a quick plug’n’play experience. Two of the performances feature specific amps and the third is just a hodgepodge of cool rock tones, everything from clean to melt-your-face.

We both gravitate toward all aspects of music, including gear and had talked about bass and how the Kemper can be utilized for such low purposes. We kicked it around and back and forth and finally found time to go through the process of profiling all of Steve’s great bass preamp collection and even did road testing this past tour as Steve used his profiles on the Kemper the whole Christmas tour. It was a resounding success at foh and in the studio, so we’re happy to share them with you now. And for those karmically inclined, there’s also the added benefit of doing good. Steve’s son Miles was born with severe hearing loss and attends the Mama Lere Hearing School at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville. ALL of the proceeds from this pack will go to Steve & Mama Lere Hearing School to help pay for the therapy his son and others so sorely need. READ HIS STORY HERE So… what’s in the pack? There are 51 unique profiles from 11 different bass preamps as well as 4 song-specific rigs Steve came up with from customer requests. I’m also including 20 bass profiles pulled from my BoC Pack so that bass players can get all of the bass profiles I have to offer in one place. Check out the sound samples from Steve’s video below and enjoy!||I'm pretty excited to put out another "greatest hits" pack of profiles. The Sweet 16 Pack includes 88 studio profiles of 16 great-sounding amps that cover everything from vintage British overdrive to grunge (Mars 72 SL, 900, 2K) to country cleans (65 Luxe Verb, 62 Prince, 62 Bandmate) to boutique classics (Buddha SD, Bog Sheba, Match Chief) to harder to find gems (Egniter Semi, Wild Kitty, Magnet Twilight, 3M Howl) to modern club staple amps (BBreaker, A30CC, Black* 60). Having a Kemper already full of profiles, it's hard to find new ones that will take the place of my longtime favorites, but there are rigs in here that are already finding a home in our live show, esp. the Luxe Verb, Mars 900, and Sheba rigs. Indeed, there are too many good options sometimes. check out the sound samples below to see if they might be what you're looking for. As usual, please forgive the playing. I pretty much run out of ideas after the first 4 clips so I just try to cover everything from bridge/neck pickups, single notes, picked chords, open chords and chunky fifths. The Sweet 16 Pack was creating using the latest 5.x firmware. Thanks!|
Profile Pack 2 is another wide-ranging collection of boutique and vintage amps, rounding out the M Britt Profile packages. Seeing to recreate* more great clean sounds from sought-after boutique amps as well as some higher gain amps, and a variety of British-type EL84 amps. It also includes some Dumble tones that compare to a real Overdrive Special along with an Overdrive Supreme and an Overtone Special.
Check out Sound Samples below to hear how the profiles sound. These samples were recorded direct to ProTools 10 via a Propellerhead Balance interface with no eq, compression, or plug-ins of any kind and then stored in the Kemper as part of this pack.
Thanks to my kind gear buddies for help obtaining some of these sounds. Scroll down for sound clips.
It is a classic amp. The diamond grill cloth, the copper metal panel, the blue alnico speakers, the unique tone stack, lack of negative feedback, Class A el84 power section... A design that has been copied and recreated a thousand times but it's hard to beat the original. With its quick pick attack and clarity when playing softly to its creamy, saturated power tube overdrive when cranked, it has become a staple guitar tone for a long time.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on this beauty from 1965 and while mere profiles could never fully recreate the magic in this amp, I got 34 studio profiles of it that should please AC afficionados and help guitarists get close to capturing the original vintage tones created by the original beast.
I was most struck and impressed by the touch sensitivity. The clips below show how picking dynamics can really dictate how much the amp will overdrive. It makes it feel like a living, breathing machine instead of a computer-simulated model, however strange and ironic that is.
The 65 ACE30 Pack was creating using the latest 5.0 firmware. Most of the profiles incorporate the legacy delay but there are a couple that utilize the new expanded 5.0 delays. Please forgive the playing in the audio samples as many of these weren't exactly in my wheelhouse. Thanks!
The Diaz CD100 is one of those amps you don't see every day. The CD100 is a 100w beast based (a little) on the high powered tweed twins but with added reverb and some pull knob options for getting unique higher gain tones. It stays bluesy no matter where it is (since Cesar Diaz was SRV's guitar tech), but can cover a great range of tones from country cleans to searing lead tones. You can see why this is one of Warren Haynes' go-to amps. I had a CD100 for many years on the road and eventually parted ways but I found another recently to bring those tones back to my KPA. These profiles cover many of the amp settings along with some gain pedals in front.
Diaz Pack requires 3.0 firmware and while most amps were profiled using my trusty 3rd Power cabinet, the new separation algorithms make it easier to get more great sounds by switching to your favorite cabs as well. These clips were recording into ProTools 10 using a Propellerhead Balance interface with no plug-ins or processing using my red Tom Anderson Cobra with 3 P90s (pictured above). Check out the soundclips below and as usual please excuse the sloppy playing...
