comparing their 'analog-ness":
- mostly digital regarding memory, control and sound generation. there is a VCF, overdrive, comp and perhaps a VCA in there. but it's 95% digital, despite yada yada "100% analog audio signal path". ime digital EGs and LFOs do affect the sound quite differently, despite claims to the contrary one might have heard.
- is not 100% analog either. It's maybe 50% analog, 50% tube. Analog control, but valve/tube based soundpath. Not 100% solid-sate transistor(SST=analog).
( Just in case anyone is confused, analog by definition refers to transistors taking over, in solid-state form, the functions of tubes. The whole distinction comes from using transistors instead
of tubes, hence they are analogous
Tubes do not
fit neatly in the analog category, being a non-solid-state predecessor of transistors. The common perception of EVERYTHING non-digital being in the category of "analog" are mistaken)
