I have the Nova from a week and I can tell that it's a beast! 3 OSC per voice means very fat basses, warm strings, and generally wider sound possibilities.

In comparison with the AN1x it's generally more flexible and easier to program and to realtime control, but the AN1x has better FX section in terms of quality and it has more possibilities in terms of strange sound effects (i.e. it has better VCO, they go up to inaudible frequencies very smoothly, the Nova breaks to a certain frequency and it reaches it with more digital distortions).

In conclusion, if you are searching an instrument for making music and for processing external sources (like me) choose the Nova, absolutely. For strange effects, I think the AN1x is the better choice yet.

Two Words - COO-OOOL! This is a very nice peice of equipment. Great sound and Flexibilty. Good solid quality feel too. Anything analog - Oberheims, Arps, Minimoogs and so on can be emulated superbly. Nice warm rich sound. Extremely clean signal but can be quite fuzzy and dirty sounding with a little work. If you haven't heard a bad joke in a while read the manual. Not so bad as Roland Manuals. But you really shouldn't bother. All of the instructions are staring you in the face. Knobs and buttons galore. Easy to program like my JD-800 but no digital stepping sounds whatsoever when editing. Smoooth. Presets are generally good and useable to some extent. The acoustic emulations piano's etc. are s-a-d. You could accidentally fall on the thing and create a better sound. The Arpeggiator - is just plain wicked fun. Its a steal at $1100. It's been keeping me awake at night tweaking and composing. Feel... weak... need ....food..must...eat...

I received my Nova a couple of days ago and WOOOOO!!!!!Definitely a GREAT synthesizer BUT: -the sound is somehow too pure even with much distorsion. -the vocoder's output signal is very low which can be annoying in a mix. -the manual SUCKS:some important info is missing (sysex dump) and the french translation is just a bad joke

Anyway,this definitely an incredible piece of gear.GET ONE!!!!NOW!!!!

sound: simply the warmest VA built today.

value: for 1049usd, the best in its class

i will say that just 2 days after recieving it, i bought a nord lead II rack, just because the nova is not as 'in yer face' as the nord. this is of course my expirienced opinion.
