Believe me my friend..if there is something you should be happy about then it is the fact that the EQ of the KPA does not "work exactly" like the ones of the profiled amps.It is a funny issue indeed and it would take pages to discuss this..plus a lots of Humor..
Well, I can see how people may like an EQ section that behaves the way the one in kemper does. Keeps changes more consistent, allows more extreme possibilities. I can also see credible reasons why someone would want an EQ stage that works like his amp. I wouldn't think that's due to people's close mindedness only.
When it comes to kemper "knob" eq, in my experience, something quite similar is achievable with studio eq. It sure most often works better for my use in terms of achievable tones, allowing for more precision. A negative for some would be that you loose the "instant" tweak-ability of the kemper's EQ section.
That said, the editor can allow for some easier tweaking on that end.
It's definitely more convenient for me to use a laptop at least a big chunk of the time when coming up with tones compared to having to reach out to kemper. When in that situation, chances are I'd opt for studio eq the vast majority of the time compared to EQ section of kemper, even in software.
Also, if I have done some profiles with a set up dialed to some "sweet spot" for a particular use, guitar set-up, PU, ect, ect, I'd usually want to be precise with the EQ.
More faithful-to-the-profiled-amp EQ section (however that is achieved; there's been some different suggestions) would allow more flexibility in terms of coming up with 'sweet spots' after profiling, not requiring quite that many profiles for me, as well. Considering eq sections of many amps can affect quite a lot, even using targeted studio eq may not achieve the above.
On that general topic, CK had once been asked about being able to load some kind of "studio eq" in the EQ section of kemper. If I remember correct, he did mention (without specifying) changes coming there too. Who knows what that's about -- but personally, even if it's about a more "tweakable" EQ section of kemper which does allow for more studio-EQ like tweaks to be saved in the respective EQ section of kemper, it would be welcome.
This would be relevant to the editor as well, for sure. I'd be able to tie possible usefulness of hardware UI (often praised for being "tube amp like", even though some don't want care for this kind of UI at all) closer to what I'd want to do in terms of tones achievable via the studio EQ.
Ultimately, I'd prefer profiled amp-like eq sections in terms of how they work, at least largely, and what they do in the real amps; but it's not a case of either/or anyway.
In most cases, an editor that gets updated consistently as kemper evolves in one way or another, is pretty hard to argue against for sure.
