Well, real high-end analog gear sounds amazing and I think way surpasses digital. Combine that gear with top converters and the results are stunning. But, and here's the kicker, plugins often do a poor job at emulating this and you end up with what could be described as clich├ęs of "the analog effect" rather than the big, punchy and, yes, transparent sound that high end analog can give you.

So given that, I often take a "pure digital" approach when it comes to plugins with just the odd bit of saturation etc when needed.
