LittleOne is a faithful software emulation of one of the most legendary and appreciated hardware analog synthesizers.
To produce a natural, deep and warm analog sound, every single component inside LittleOne (Oscillators, Filter, Envelopes, LFO, ...) has been carefully modeled to mimic the inner behaviour of real hardware analog electronics components, their original frequency responses and their operative ranges.
In addition to this, LittleOne encloses a full rack with a 16-step analogue sequencer, a 16-step trancegate effect and two insert/master effects slots, making LittleOne a versatile and complete audio synthesis setup.
Little One seems rather overlooked, which seems a bit of a shame to me, considering how good it is.
I don't possess a modern Moog for direct comparison, but to my ears this VSTI synth sounds gorgeous; thick, rich and 'analog' sounding.
Here's a great video that demonstrates the sound very well;
It's not expensive, and there's a plethora of presets bundled with it. And unlike the physical synth it's modelled on, LO does polyphonic as well as monophonic. I like it particularly for rich pads.
There's also a 'rack' section on a second page, which features a gate (for making choppy, trance sounds), a step sequencer, and two effect slots, into which you can rack some useful standard effect units; reverbs, chorus, delays, distortions, etc.
Synth Edit made plugins have garnered a bad rep in years gone by. Don't let the SE label put you off. This is a very high quality synth.
For a (modern) Moog-y synth on a small budget, I don't think you can do better.
