The plug in AN board actually isn't the same as an AN1X. It is only 5 voice polyphonic and I heard it is modeled after the Sequential Circuits sound. If so, this board would cover Nord Lead type sounds, which the AN1X can't really cover. 5 out of 5 for what the AN1X is capable of and for the price.

Now the An1x is available as a plugin card for new yamaha synths for under $300 USD. (A smart move by yammy - they have a DX7 card too..cool!) Wouldn't be surprised if Roland did the same thing. - Would be awesome to have a D-50 on an expansion card and other vintage Roland gear.

Still, I needed a keyboard to drive my rack gear and sequencer and the An1x is a great synth any way you slice it. Definitely no regrets and was worth every penny.

The AN-1X beats te Nord Lead and Z1 (and Prophecy) hands down as a 'real' analog synth. It's also much better value for your dollars, yen or slotties.

However, the construction-quality of the AN-1X isn't that good, so if you're going to be carrying the thing around a lot, I'd go for the Z1 if your budget can stretch to it.

Can you do decent pads?

Heres something else that makes this a brilliant "pad" machine. There are 4 free envelope tracks on each patch which can control any of approx 50 parameters (not just filter cutoff but cool stuf like ring mod, oscillator sync,LFO speed etc.) Ok, so you have 4 more envelopes than a regular synth to create evolving textures with. So what are the limitations of these envelopes? To my mind, virtually none.

You can draw any shape you like,have it sync to rhythm or time it by seconds (max 16 seconds). You can trigger these by keyboard or have them automatically re-trigger. You can adjust the way you want the envelope to loop (front-to-back, front-to-back-to-front, etc.)The parameters controlled by each track can be for either or both scenes.

If you can dream a morph you can probably do it. This stuff is not pre-determined (like a wavetable synth), But if you have an imagination, and would like to draw sounds with your mouse.....

If you want to see for yourself, download the PC editor for the AN1X and check out the Free Eg module.
