Digital is higher technical quality, but analog's impurities tend to create a sound pleasurable to many people.

Well first of all oscillators and filters (whatever digital or analog) are two sparate things.
To give a really simple description the oscillator can create basic waveforms, each of those basic waveform have it's own spectrum composition wich means that is made by multiple istances of sine waves (harmonic partials) according to the definition of the Fourier series. Filters are paricular systems which can apply modifies on the spectrum of the waveform, in particular they can attenuate some of the harmonic partials effectively creating a new waveform. Filters like oscillators can work in the continuous time domain (typically they are phisical systems made by circuits and wood XD) or in discrete time domain (digital systems-->computers).
Not a tard question at all.
