I bought this synth last year in November. I was blown away by the quality of the sounds...very analogue. Yeah, it has some bad qualities like EVERY synth on the market but I really miss it and want to buy another one again. It makes excellent TB-303 sounds, pads, strings, you name it. It really sounds and feels analog. They're now $250 or a little bit more for a used one in great condition on Ebay. Take advantage of this synth...great sounds, great keyboard feeling...and it's used in film scores and by professionals...it's not trance oriented...you can use it in other genres also.

I also have an E-MU Xtreme Lead-1, a Novation Nova, a Novation Supernova II keyboard and a korg Prophecy...read my reviews later. :o)

Good virtual analog synth, make a warm jx style pad and Fm syntesis can make added at a analog modeling some crazy digital efx... The best of this synth is a step sequencer, phrase sequencer and arpeggiator width synth goa/trance sound, but remember, have a classic Va sound, he can't imitate analog sound, but is a good synth for all, control, sound, price ( have a same price used at many Software instruments)

Yes indeed, the AN1x is a really good synth, especially the fun analogue type step-sequencer, would have been even better if it had 32 steps instead of 16, no matter though, it's still excellent, no problems with this synth.

I did try to persuade Yamaha to rip out the sequencer and release it on it's own, imagine 4 rows of 16 knobs with a built-in AN synth engine, now that would have been sequencer heaven and a hark back to the days of analogue sequencing.

Unfortuneatly, I never heard from Yamaha again? I'm sure my idea would have been massive for them, does anybody else agree!

A few weeks ago, I bought the An1x for a second time. The first time I must say I didnt like the users interface so much, especially once I saqw the JP8000. Later I realised that the engine was so much better in many ways than The Jp. With the free An1x editor the programming is just a breeze now: excellent. Now: this request to Yamaha: Dear sirs, U always have the better synth engine in your products, better than the other brands. But why, why cant u make the interface also better than the others. I explain: look at the cs1x, cs2x, an1x: the built quality does the engine injustice. My wishlist:

- More controllers and sliders (cfr Jp8000 and YOURS older Cs30, Cs20M: THOSE were the machines) - No more that synthetic case: light metal ( aliminium) - More polyphony, a third osciilator - users arepeggios - 4 track stepsequencers

In other words: an engineer is not an artist. Get a professional designer for the user interface.

Dont worry about sales percentages etc...: the home users markets is about 80% now, so dont underestimate that market. Even if we are no pro-users, PLEAZE give us what we ask for: a good synth engine and a good interface.

And last: give your synth a name, like u did on the Motif.

All these small things just make a product better for the manufacturer and for the user. We need u and u need us!

And for the rest... Yamaha ROCKX !

Take care

James
