Roland D-50 | The King of all VA synths?

"Yeah, yeah... I know... it's not really technically a VA synth. Calm down, take a Zanax and let me explain.
For all PRACTICAL purposes the D-50 is the ultimate digital synth to emulate analog sounds. It does so in a totally unique way and the sound it produces cannot be replicated by any other synths, including its own clones like the Boutique D-05, Roland Cloud, V-synth D-50 card add-on or the VST version. Only the original D-50/550 can sound like this.

The "fake" filters, the DAC and the way it crunches through the numbers (LA) to get down to brass tacks is so crisp and aliased that it sits on top of the food chain imo."
