I bought the synth half a year ago on "E-bay Deutschland" for 350 EUR. I must admit I am still learning it. In one word the possibilities and sound of this machine are stunning. Expressive, fat analog-like playing. For its price gorgeous. It may lack a little bit softness and warmness of real analogs, but mustn't forget it is a virtual, quasi-analog synth and Yamaha did a great job. I completely agree, that Yamaha should think of a successor now: An2x perhaps? It could be a little bit more close to real analogs like Juno 106 for example. For anyone who consideres buying an1x my recommendation is: don't think, just buy and let the an1x do the rest. You won't regret. Cheers!

The An1x is a very professional synthesizer. whit great sounds and secuences. only one thing is realy bad programmed by Yamaha; that is: the program change is very... very.. slow, y mean when you want an other sound by pressing + and -. futher, All my synth,s in de past (that where quit a few) were very stable. my An1x has now several time,s crashed. his software hangs, and y have to put the device out and on again. so i,am very interrested in a internal software update. And if it is there already, please let anyone now. thanks

Hi, hopeing to get another AN1x soon, had my hands on one years ago, and little did I know then how much I'd want one now. We gave ours back for lack of drum sets, but now I have plenty, and so miss the rest of what the AN1x was that I had to come here and comment. Read several of the last posts, and noticed a want of an updated version of the AN1x. I'll just say dream on. Someone mentioned yammy listend to the RS7k owners, which they may have, but I've noticed yamaha don't seem to give much care into discontinued products. The yahoo RS forum has been trying to get heard for a year now by yamaha, and it don't look very promising. I do hope they learn, and find a way to continue the line of X products, and even the QY line would be nice to see again, but with most newer and updated lines, they find a way to engineer out some of the best features in past gear. If an updated product is made, my request is to not just most of good stuff included from previous synths, but have it all, everything plus the new features. Whys that so hard to do?

The funny thing is (tells something of filters) that AN1x has made the best TB-emulation I have ever heard coming from VA(I have owned the most of VAs) with one oscillator. Not many are interested.. but after 5 years I have finally made great lead sounds for my music (which at first I didn't get). Pads are amazing and synth strings as well. When I many years ago used arpeggios/seq it didn't synced well to midi clock. If there just be LFO sync to midi it would be the perfect tool for me.

This synth is AWESOME! When I bought my AN1x in early 2003 I was surpised how powerful it is sound-wise - this is very capable synth with very rich, authentic (Prophetic ;) ), analogish sound that blows many new competitors away in many areas IMHO. Easy to mix. It has nice filters with its own character. Also AN1x is a very good controller with the nice synth touch. Together with An1xEdit free software editor you'll get a very powerful subtractive (and simple FM) synthesis possibilies that lying far away from that simple "fart" and "whistle" sounds (AN1x can do it veeery goood too, if needed ;) )...

I'm a really happy AN1x owner - it's godsend to have this compact, powerful and convenient "digital version" of two vintage Prophet-5. Total inspiration and analog heaven. I love my "Blue beast"...
