ATM Humbucker profile pack for the Kemper profiling Amplifier

this pack is suited for humbucker guitars and standard gain pickups (up to the pickups fount on the music man JP series) . It won't produce good results on single coils (except when specified in the comments) due to all the tweaks I took.

The pack contains some direct profiles taken from the line out of the AMTSS11, and around 18 merged profiles. I didn’t use the internal cab sim, since KPA handles CABS superbly better. My choice for the CAB was my ‘all around’ Marshall JTM30 2x10 eminence speaker.

Once again AMT proves it's a big beast in a very small but powerful package : strong personality and a fantastic versatility. I'm still surprised how good the JTM cab handles all these tones so well, from warm jazz finger picking tones to heavy metal monster and everything between. Part of the magic is clearly in the merging algorithm done by the KPA, but with good profile, a good cab and a great guitar you can go very far on the KPA.

You'll find a good selection of FXs on each rig, in their own context. Most cleans include a dist stomp to switch from clean to lead on the same rig. On crunches and drives the dist stomps are mainly used to change the color of the drive.

clean.blues : a rig tailored for vintage blues style with lots of character, with a great gain course and a few pedals for different colors & FXes. This one fits both bridge and neck pickup well as well as splits. Also worth a try on single coils.

clean.jazz : warm , dimed on the trebles, sensitive to finger play and dynamic, best used on neck pickup, but allows some nice rhythm & strum on bridge PU. Splits will also fit well.

clean.main : an all around clean rig that fits most styles, including strumming. Comp and EQ will add more clarity for mix or live situation. It's really worth trying to play with the gain knob for different dynamics, crunches and tones.

clean.full : same kind, a little richer and ready for mix with the EQ being constantly ON. Great sensitivity to finger play and vol pot. A stereo widener is available.

clean.funk : this is a typical humbucker vintage funk tone (à la James Brown), very tasty on mid and bridge position. there are 2 different phasers and a specific chorus & wah.

clean.dry : very dry , and simple tone, it's made for recording while stacking up with other clean tones. Lots of FX choices & strum friendly.

crunch.zep : fits early Led Zep pretty close ,great for blues and crunchy rhythm guitar parts, there is a good gain course, try it for yourself. There is a good 12 string emulation on stomp A, and to distortion types.

crunch.dirty : crunch with great character, , good gain course, mostly used on bridge PU. some real single coil flavor & twang for your humbucker guitars

drive.70's : that typical 70's growl you hear on classic rock album ( Thin Lizzy, Aerosmith, Grand Funk...) the gain course is perfect on this one, you'll achieve superb cleans & crunches as well with a rolled off vol pot on your guitar.I love this rig . Uping the gain will lead to modern tones. V2 :the 1st dist stomp is a great big muff classic preset, and the 2nd one is even dirtier, with some single coil flavors

drive.heavy : be sure to have the boost engaged on this rig , it's really part of the tone. That's the heavy tone most humbucker guitars will love when it comes to hi gain rhythm. It's best used on bridge pick up with vol pot adjustments instead of gain tweaking.

heavy.rhythm.brit : a typical Marshall rhythm tone, the AMT handles this tone surprisingly good, lots of basses and punch.

heavy.rhythm.US : similar to heavy boogie straight tones, lots of punch from the AMT and the JTM cab.

lead.US : pretty distorted boogie classic lead with delay, a few options & colors in the FX selection. Djemass friendly EDIT : there is an alternative lead.US.djemass tweaked by the man himself to record the demos.

lead.brit : classic distorted Marshall lead tone , try to adjust the drive by the guitar vol. pot.

lead.dirty : this is the lead that will complement the drive.70's well, similar vibe, but tailored for leads with a hint of dirt.

lead.carlos : to mimic Carlos Santana tone, must be used on neck pickup with finger style attack and vol pot adjustments. Best used on PRS or Yamaha SG.

PACK includes several bonus rigs (Scofield jazz tone & my Bass emulator .. )
