There is no difference between analog and digital synthesis (i mean they are differences but...) - method can be different for synthesis - analog synthesizers uses mostly subtractive synthesis, where digital synthesizers can use and mostly use different synthesis methods (but they also use subtractive synthesis).

Amiga sound system can use "sample based synthesis" and "wavetable synthesis" . Personally i think that Paula is flexible enough to support with CPU help other type of synthesis (but in limited way).
