Very Chemicals, Daft Punk, Underworld etc once you get into it. Seriously creative synth. Good for electro and house also. Yamaha have stopped making them which makes this an instant classic in my opinion. Its up there with the Waldorfs And Emus. Nothing to do with the CS1X rubbish.

when I first saw this thing when it came out, I thought it was cheap, techno crap. cheap case, cheesy presets. but I played one for a few minutes at a local store a while back. the normal patches are pretty good. like the mini stuff. and I may peep it again the next time I go over to the store. I may pick the son of a bitch up. if they give me a good price. seems like a sure to be future classic. I need to check out the glide, filter sweeps, and different stuff.

Very nice. Picked one up less than half price (Canadian$900) as for some reason Yamaha stopped making them. Probably trying to push the CS2x/6x.

The possibilities on this are fairly limitless. using Analogue emulation, it is capable of some fairly authentic sounds. In terms of sounds, the Nord and the JP8000 just about beat it, but both machines are much more expensive making this the best in my opinion.

Plenty of knobs and a nice layout make this a pretty decent control synth. I use this along with a GR-50 guitar synth as my main controller.

It's really a great Synth ! Great sound, powerful in programming (I've my AN1X for closely 1 year and I still discover new sounds), not so much expensive. I'm using it with a M1 and I think I'll never change them. Enjoy with it!

My favorite VA next to the NORDs. It has great control and you can make some very impressive spaced out sounds with it. The knobs have nice action and allow for indepth control. Great for playing live and in the studio..plus the built in fx are not bad..they sound a little dul compared to more expensive external boxes..but cant complain for internal fxs at all. The grid/matrix is a bit of a pain, but you get used to it..in fact..depending on what you like to do you may hardly even use it. This synth is great for sound creation..coupled with a sampler and you have quite a sound arsenal to add to your studio.
