Kemper has announced OS 7.5 for its Profiler amp modeler, which adds a host of new effects, including an Acoustic Simulator, Phase Widener, Delay Widener and Auto Swell.

The Acoustic Simulator allows players to simply stomp to switch their electric amp profile to a simulated acoustic, with parameters for Pickup, Body, Bronze and Sparkle – Kemper isn’t promising perfect results, but sounds that are good enough to leave your acoustic at home if you only need it for one or two songs.
