BHP CUSTE+ (CAE 3+)
BHP CUSTE+ (CAE 3+)
Based on Custom Audio Electronics CAE 3+
The BHP CustE+ Profile Pack is a whopping 56 profiles for the KPA. The BHP CustE+ seeks to recreate tone from racks and rigs that incorporated the Custom Audio Electronics CAE3+ preamp. This preamp is in the running for THE "Holy Grail Preamp". For this pack I profiled two different original purple CAE3+ preamps, and created a balance of tones that would complete any rack setup. In addition, I created an entire bank of Lukather style tones (mostly Candyman & Kingdom of Desire era), and Megadeth (mostly Symphony of Destruction & Youthanasia) style tones.
2019 UPDATE! :
39 brand new profiles added. I really wanted to capture the fatter, more woody characteristic of the original preamp. So I used a Bogner Ecstasy as the power section. 24 of these profiles are Direct. 15 are Studio Profiles.
NEW V2 UPDATE! :
Most of my profiles are made with recording in mind (even though they work great live), and many of them emulate recorded tones. Because of that, some of the profiles match the recorded EQ curve of an album. So with the V2 patches, I was thinking, "OK, if I was going to go play a live show and brought my ( insert preamp name here ), how would I dial in my channels.
The CustE+ V2 patches are 4 new STUDIO, DIRECT, and MERGED profile, ranging from clean to full searing lead. It's the first time I've ever released Direct profiles. All of the V2 profiles were recorded with a gorgeous chrome faced VHT Classic EL34 power amp, which I didn't have when working on the V1 (so that's new too).
All of the V2 profiles are updates, so anyone who purchased a pack with V2 content will receive an update email link.
Your digital download will be prepared and ready moments after your purchase.
These profiles should install without any issues, but if you run into any poblems, please try updating to the latest Kemper OS. That seems to fix most problems that arise. Enjoy!
