I love my real amps, but honestly the Kemper can replace them. I use both on my recordings depending on whim. The only difference really is in the joy of an amp in the room vs the slightly less exciting experience of playing from a control room. On record really the difference is just the background noise and room reverb.

I don’t hear a universal gloss or one dimensional it’s to Kemper recordings, but I hear artists choices. It’s proved it’s bona fides more than enough times in more than enough AB tests to the best ears out there. I doubt anyone here could infallibly tell what parts are amp and which are sim even in among my fumbling tracks. What I do hear is close mic’d sounds. That may or may not represent gloss and shallowness to you, it’s the popular choice though for guitar on record for many years.
