Digital Synth Amp Section

In digital synths does the amp section emulate analog summing or is it a+b mostly?

It really just depends on the synth. The Virus is going after analog (hence why there are so many saturation modes) but the Noid is pretty much A+B.

The synths I've used so far had saturation effect after the output and some you can drive the filter section. But after I read your post I remembered that Cypher2 has a shaper that you can use before or after the filter section. Didn't know about the Virus, thank you.

Actually what made me think of this was that all of the modular software I used so far seem to have VCAs that only sum the input and wondered how it works for other software as well.

Sometimes you read here someone say that saturation plugins are the ones that are still not on par with hardware. That should actually be easier than modelling an analog synth since most of the time there are a several stages of saturation going on.
