I'm basically 90% in the box and have found that with a little practice and insight, very smooth/warm/"analogue"ish and otherwise vibey tones are perfectly achievable with plugins.
Could you talk about the plugins you found suitable for this? cheers

Soundtoys 5 have plenty of things:


All brilliant for adding some life.

Hardware front:

The Culture Vulture - by Thermionic Culture probably cant be beat as a tool recording synths in - and putting on the mix out:

I love the Scheps 73 plugin from Waves and can also 2nd the decapitator as nice "warmer" plugs.
