'Analog' sound from VSTs

How to do this, that and the other. Share, learn, teach. How did X do that? How can I sound like Y?

Check out XILS3 LE for cheap, realistic analog sound ... Its 34 euro atm. Sounds awesome.

Repro nails the sound pretty accurately but it requires a fairly hefty CPU to have multiple instances.


I kind of thought Arturias SEM and Matrix12 emus werent too bad for some sounds.

No but I am on permission!!! I just think that BIT will suit the posters needs perfectly, it is not a heavy cpu intensive synth and has a great sound!! The same can be said for Synth1 too as well as Hive 1.2 or even Arturia Mini V too.. heck he could even look at tone2 saurus or applied accustics AAS analogue3 va or Dune1 or also Genesis CM or Vk1. Now that I have mentioned these he could give tal uno lx or noisemaker a try and just for good measure he can give retrologue a look.

Sorry if I've offended you. Not intentional. I put a smiley there to show it was a joke (sarcasm). You mentioned the same synth in 2 posts on the same page is all. :shrug: ;)

IME, no software even comes close to the real thing.

But, if you are keen anyway, or simply don’t have the money and/or space for hardware, apparently Legend is one of the closest, FWIW.

I am sure Rob won't mind if you check out his Synth, maybe he would prefer it if you do buy it though!
