But if you are telling me that the emulations sounds the same as the original hardware, it’s like saying a dish made with garlic powder has the same taste than one made with fresh garlic.
Just because you don’t hear the difference, doesn’t mean it’s not there.”

Stupid. At best.

It's not an analogy, it's simply an image you made up for your own self assurance. Leads to nothing.

BTW: Who cares how the sound someone wants is achieved? Answer: Nobody. This kind of "discussions" are nothing but a waste of time done by people with no clue whatsoever and for the sake of appearing as "intellectual musician".
