Profiler Model 5 Compact Stereo Guitar Amplifier with DSP
Introduction
Congratulations! You are now the proud owner of the Crate Profiler Model 5 compact five-watt
stereo guitar amplifier with advanced digital signal processing (DSP) and 11 classic amp profiles. This portable amplifier has guitar strap pegs on each side for hands-free transport, and
a battery compartment for operating when AC power isn’t available.
This rugged amplifier combines outstanding features with serious clean and distorted sounds.
Digital Reverb, Delay, and Effects provide you with a wide variety of stereo sounds. Crate’s
unique Profile Tracking feature automatically stores your DSP settings for each profile to
memory. As you switch from one profile to another, the last DSP settings for the selected profile are instantly recalled. A rear panel 1/8" stereo audio input jack allows you to play along
with your CD player, MP3 player, or iPod. There is also a headphone output for private listening, and a jack for connecting the supplied AC adapter whenever AC power is available.
The Profiler Model 5 also includes a CD-R with Tracktion, Mackie’s powerful audio and MIDI
sequencing software for digital recording on a PC or Mac. Simply connect the USB port on
the Profiler Model 5 to your computer and record your music into Tracktion (or any other DAW
software application).
Like all Crate products, your Profiler Model 5 amplifier is designed by musicians and built
using only the best components. Extensive testing confirms that this amplifier is the absolute
best it can be. In order to get the most out of your new amplifier, we strongly urge you to
read this manual before you begin playing.
And thank you for choosing Crate.
Here are some of the features packed into your new Profiler Model 5 Stereo Combo Amplifier:
• 5 watts rms power output
• 2 x 4" speakers
• 11 digitally controlled analog classic amp profiles
• Proprietary “Tone” EQ control
• Stereo DSP Effects including Delay, Modulation Effects, and Reverb sections
• Audio Input
• Headphone Output
• USB Port
• AC Adapter or battery-powered
• Tracktion software application included

Profile Tracking
Your Crate Profiler Model 5 gives you the power of Profile Tracking. Once you select a DSP
setting for each profile, Profile Tracking stores the settings to memory whenever you change
profiles. When you go back to that profile, Profile Tracking recalls those DSP settings automatically, without changing the DSP controls!
For example:
• Select a Clean profile. Set the Effects control to “Flanger,” the Delay control to “Multi,” and
adjust the Reverb control to your preference.
• Select a Medium Gain profile. Set the Effects control to “Chorus,” the Delay control to
“Single,” and readjust the Reverb control to a different setting. (The DSP settings for the
Clean profile are now saved to memory.)
• Select a High Gain profile. Set the Effects control to “Phaser,” the Delay control to another
“Multi” setting, and readjust the Reverb control once again. (The DSP settings for the
Medium Gain profile are now saved to memory.)
• Reselect the first Clean profile. (The DSP settings for the High Gain profile are now saved
to memory.)
When you reselected the Clean profile, the DSP settings previously stored in memory were
automatically recalled. Switch to the Medium Gain profile and the DSP settings you just stored
are still there. You can change the DSP settings at any time. Once you set the DSP and select
another profile, Profile Tracking stores the settings for you. Even when the amplifier is turned
off, the DSP settings are stored and recalled the next time you turn it on. That’s the power of
Profile Tracking!

1. POWER: Use this switch to turn the
amplifier on (top of the switch depressed)
and off (bottom of the switch depressed).
2. POWER LED: This LED illuminates when
the POWER switch is on and the amplifier
has power provided from either the supplied
AC adapter or the battery pack.
3. INPUT: Use this jack to connect your
guitar to the amplifier by means of a shielded instrument cable.
4. GAIN: Use this control to adjust the amount
of gain for the Medium Gain and High Gain
profiles. The amount of gain varies, depending on the profile selected. The more gain,
the more distortion. The Gain control has no
effect when a Clean profile is selected.
5. TONE: Use this control to “dial in” the
tone. Rotating this control counter-clockwise
results in a darker sound, while rotating it
clockwise will give you a brighter sound.
6. MASTER: Use this control to adjust the
overall output level of the amplifier.
7. PROFILES: Use this switch to select
one of 11 different amplifier profiles. These
profiles simulate the sound of 11 popular
amplifiers. There are two clean profiles, four
medium gain profiles, and five high gain profiles. More information about these profiles is
provided on page 7.
8. DELAY: Use this control to select the
type of digital delay effect. When the control
is straight up (12 o’clock), the delay effect
is bypassed. Turning the control to the
left (counterclockwise) provides five different presets of multi-repeat delay settings.
Turning the control to the right (clockwise)
results in four different presets of singlerepeat delay settings. The last position in the
clockwise direction turns on the A-440 Hz
tuner. It provides a repeating 440 Hz tuning
fork tone as a tuning reference.
9. EFFECTS: Use this control to select
one of ten digital modulation effects. When
the control is straight up (12 o’clock), the
modulation effects are bypassed. More
information about these effects is provided
on page 8.
10. REVERB: Use this control to adjust
the amount of digital reverb effect. In its
fully counterclockwise position, the signal
will be “dry” (without reverb). As you rotate
this control clockwise, the amount of reverb
increases.

11. BATTERY COMPARTMENT: Remove
the cover to the battery compartment by
pressing the clip on the right-hand side of
the cover and pulling it out. Install six “AA”
alkaline batteries, making sure to orient them
correctly as indicated by the markings inside.
Reinstall the cover and you’re ready to go!
12. POWER IN: This is where you connect
the AC adapter to provide power to the
Profiler Model 5 whenever AC power is available to prolong the life of the batteries.
Note: When the AC adapter is connected,
power is automatically drawn from the AC
adapter and not from the batteries.
13. HEADPHONES: Use this 1/8" stereo
mini jack to connect headphones to the
Profiler Model 5 and monitor the stereo signal that is playing in the two speakers. The
internal speakers are disconnected when
headphones are used.
Note: Depending on your headphones, you
may need to use a stereo 1/8" plug to 1/4"
jack headphone adapter, available at most
electronic stores.
6
14. AUDIO INPUT: Use this 1/8" stereo
mini jack to connect the output from a CD
player, MP3 player, laptop, etc., to the amplifier. The stereo signal at the Audio Input is
summed with the left and right signals in the
amplifier just before the USB output and the
Master volume control. This allows you to
play along with your favorite music. Use the
output level control for the signal source to
adjust the signal for the proper mix with your
guitar.
Note: Depending on your CD player or
other signal source, you may need to use an
adapter (i.e., two phono jacks to 1/8" stereo
plug), available at most electronic stores.
15. USB: The USB (Universal Serial Bus)
connector allows you to connect the Profiler
Model 5 to a computer so you can record
your guitar directly to Tracktion (or your
favorite DAW application). Use a standard
USB cable (not supplied) to make this connection.
