How does a Virtual Synthesizer work?

A virtual synthesizer like ANA 2.5 is a type of software synthesizer that acts like an instrument inside your computer. You play it through a MIDI controller, like a keyboard, and it generates sound just like a physical synth would. It's a piece of software that uses your computer's processing power to create music.

Different synth plugins achieve different goals - a kick drum software synthesizer creates kick drums for example. Imagine virtual instruments as a digital lego set for music, where you can snap together different blocks (synth plugins) into your DAW to build your own unique sound.
