Something heavy coming your way… it’s the West Coast Killer by Live Ready Sound, a fat pack of Kemper profiles that recreates the sound from a Fortin Cali amplifier! As far as I know this is the latest amp model from Fortin and it features a clean channel, two overdrive channels and loads of other features – see the link below for more information on the actual amplifier.
This pack is massive with the pre-sell pack containing 145 profiles, it has since then recieved two updates with an additional 37 profiles – both studio and direct’s. The Cali is described as an extremely versatile amplifier and that is reflected in the profiles of course. The tone is like a modded Marshall with a twist and very aggressive.
So, in this video I went all Ibanez now when I have two of them. I just figured the Ibanez Destroyer and the D-tuned RGDIM6FM would match this pack fine. And they did, if I may say so.
So much for the description, hope you’ll like the video! Subscriptions, likes and comments are welcome… Thank You, to you who subscribe – the support is much appreciated!

Rig Showcase by Have Guitar
Here’s a “bonus” Rig Showcase – Live Ready Sounds The Gentleman! Could it be that LRS is the first profiler to do the Fortin Meshuggah Signature amplifier? I think so! And it’s not only expensive (3333.33 USD!) it is also limited to 100 amps made. Ain’t that crazy?!
So I got a hands on tryout of the first release from LRS for this pack and what can I say? Love it. I have no idea how the profiles stands against the original amp as I’m likely to never even be in the same room as one, but the profiles have a great tone – it’s brutal, it’s metal, they djent – and much more! As I’m writing this the pack has not gone on sale yet but it should any day now.

Kemper profiles demo – Part II
Kemper Rig Showcase by Have Guitar
Here is a slightly different episode of Have Guitar’s Kemper Rig Showcase as the BE-2017 Baked Chicken Experiment V22 profile pack by Live Ready Sound is a slightly different pack. First of all it is HUGE! As this video was recorded it contained over 200 profiles and it’s still growing with new updates being sent out! Also it’s an experimental pack that will develop over time with user feedback. So, I decided to do more than video of this pack!
This is the second video of the Baked Chicken (gotta love that name!) and there will be one more. Check out Live Ready Sound’s webpage (link below) for more details, as this profile pack has a ton of different cabs and mic’s used. The amplifier behind this is the famous Friedman BE-100, which is a very capable amp for all kinds of sounds. Very impressive amplifier and so is this profile pack!
I do hope you liked this video and do by all means support Have Guitar by subscribing, the support is very appreciated! A very big Thanks goes out to all and everyone who is subing!
