ALRIGHT BATTLE OF THE CENTURY.

What's more analogue?

A: Analogue VCO, Digital filter.
B: Digital OSC : VCF.
This is the naive me asking the question...what synth(s) has VCOs and digital filter and amp sections (would that be DCF and DCA)?

No, DCF and DCA would entail a digitally controlled/clocked analogue component.. like DCO does. A DCO is still in the analogue domain. Only things I can think of that have that are SID/MOS based synths or soundcards/expansions. Monomachine?

I don't know of any VCO->digital filter stuff though.. I'd be shocked if it didn't exist though. Lots of odd s**t in the late 80's and early 90's... plus the many boutique/homebrew stuff nowadays.

Didn't take long for someone to bite all over the troll bait.

Don't jump the gun so quickly. Walter didn't bite on anything, he actually asked a decent question that stemmed from a bad joke..that's all. I see no one trolling here except the tekken post in the first place.

JUST HOW THE h**l DOES THIS ALWAYS HAPPEN ?!

The way I see it, and the wiser folk on here see it, there are synths that sound good & synths that sound like s**t. The microkorg is VA. It actually sounds pretty good. The sixtrack was analog, and actually (IMO) sounded pretty shitty.

And I definitely think having an analog filter is more important than oscillators. To me, that's where more of the character comes from.
bonne chance

I said that was in my opinion ! Of course, it really is all subjective and dependent on what oscillators / what filter etc. Still, there are only good sounding & bad sounding synths. None of this A vs D bullshit.

rockets can take people to the moon whereas a monotribe is a rant like a diatribe except half as interesting.

Korg spells corn if you change the K for a c and the g for an n.
