But surely that is the difference between synthesizers, not VA or RA?
Well, I suppose the concept can be applied in that way!

Gul Dern it! There is
no "RA." There is "analog," and then there are the other ones! I can't stand this retroactive labeling! There is no such thing as an "analog watch," there are "watches," and then there are "digital watches!" There is no such thing as "analog tv," subsequent forms of the technology require the qualification! :::waves cane for emphasis::::
