No, it's not truly analogue, but it sounds really spectacular. Lots of filtering, modulation and effects options. The most versatile synth for the money. Build quality is excellent - potentiometers are firm and smooth. Lots of knobs for easy on the fly augmentation of sounds. The factory presets are quite usable. It's a two oscillator synth, which might not be enough beef for some people, but I rarely use a three oscillator sound accept for leads. Oh right... if that's a problem try it in unison mode and stack 3 or four layers on top of one another... boom you've got monophonic monster. The only downside is it's only got 16 voices. So, if you're planning on using it for more than a couple of polyphonic instruments you may have some problems.
