You can form complex sound by Amiga HW without CPU load (almost) complex as complex can be AM/FM modulation of sample by sample...

Same as for example on 6581 which is not analog but digital sync build around NCO concept. 6581 have only digitally controlled analog filter but you can add this to Amiga too.

In addition, Paula doesn't run at the 44.1kHz that a modern sound card resamples everything to, so there is bound to be a difference. Perhaps this is noticeable?
So most of the soundcards use 48ksps instead 44.1ksps - and Paula can run with such speed but it need to be externally clocked (28.224MHz) and in fast mode (ie H sync faster than in normal TV mode) - AUDxPER $50.

Oer perhaps you are lucky one and your Amiga will work with SysCLK 43.7472MHz

And resampling is not as bad as audiophile people says...

I forgot to add that You can keep perfect shape of original signal only you need to use in your resampler.
