Not an expert at all (since i don't actually have any Va's), but isn't a lot of at least 90's electronic music (and possibly much more) characterised by some sounds (e.g. the supersaw) that only VA's can do properly?
True but, to my ears, VAs in general sound like a cheap, plasticky version of a real analog synth...after all, I'm not into 90s techno or any form of EDM actually...

My idea of a "digital" synth is one that sounds really different than an analog...FM, PD, Additive, ROMpler, Wavetable, Granular etc is my idea of digital...when I want subtractive and filters I prefer analog...with some exceptions of course!heh
