I happen to come from Norway, but ok... :-))

You say... "you I like VA"... Well I happen to love analogs myself, actually
I like whatever make good sounds to my ears. I once had a Synthex which is
based on DCO´s (and ?software envelopes?)... Great synth but drive your VA
through some analog filter and they are both equal to what analog is.

BTW: you have a 303 ??... what is the point??. Get rebirth and you´ve got
99,9 the original sound... there you go again, people yet has not understood
the true power of VA. Rebirth has better sound today than the 303 (and
control... remember MIDI!!!). There is a certain attack/punchy/agressive..
distortet/screaming sound that you hear in most better techno tracks
today... This where all possible to create after rebirth where released, as
you understand... there is many good things with VA.

VA is getting nice.

As we say in norway...
