For those who are reading these reviews and thinking should I buy An1x or not, or should I buy Virus instead. I had Virus B same time I had AN1x and I can say both has so much other don't. Virus has much sounds and stuff but with AN1x you can layer sounds, make so much different stuff you couldn't dream with Virus. If you program AN1x well, it can make great sounds only with 2 oscs, so you have full 10-voice poly. Use dual function to make more complex sounds (4osc, 4lfo, 2 filters+2 hipass filters, 4envelopes, tons of modulations, fm-sync stuff etc). Buy Virus, Waldorf (micro) Q or other for more multitimbral and then AN1x but don't sell your AN1x to get virus etc if you like the sound of it...I don't see any sence...

I bought my AN1x new in 1997 for £899.95 and think it's the best 'analog' synth I've ever owned and I've owned a few (SH-101, Juno-106, JX-10, Supernova 2 to name a few) because it's sounds, especially leads, are really cutting. I never intend to sell it and use it in every song I write. The 'morph' function has produced some exquisite sounds and make it so versatile on stage. I love the ribbon controller and modulation matrix and think the aftertouch is great, really expressive, especially compared to some synths where it feels like you need weight-training for your fingers to coax small changes from the AT - assign it to sync depth for some grat sounds. I love my AN1x and will probably buy another at some point. Nuff said!

Goa-Boy...Yamaha continued the AN1x as the smaller AN200...and even better the AN200 costs only 200US$ in the USA...400Euro in Europe...

Yamaha an1x is absolutely superb. I luv Goa Trance and this machine kicks sand in the face of jp8000 (roland sucks anyway), nord lead, virus, supernova (these are more expensive and 'baby' brands -- recently established companies)...

the an1x has absolutely the phattest filters..i mean PHHHHAT! and the range of sounds you could create with a little physics knowledge and the an1x editor (created by Greg) is amazing!!!

I HATE YAMAHA for discontinuing this synth. Roland makes very few good keyboards and they never discontinue those, that is what i actually like about roland. The plg 150-an plug in board and the desktop an200 module yamaha makes are limited compared to the an1x.

YAMAHA!!! please start remaking this beauty (maybe you could release the an2x or something, with more midi control)...

AN1x is a great synth better sounding than the Nord lead, Korg Z1 and JP 8000 VA synths and you guys can get a free sound editor off the internet which is superb, and you could get free sounds and another free sound generator also called genetic that randomizes the the current sound also off the internet I still have my copies of those programs even though I sold my AN1x keyboard, I bought a Oberheim OB-12 synth analog modeling and It gives more midi channels and more voices and more outputs and more buttons and sliders and more better interface screen and all for just $750.00 new so had to sell my old faithful for the new generation synth, but the AN1x will do you great sound service for years to come for virtually a few hundred dollars. It just doesn't have enough multi timbriality and interface screen is too small and menus buried too deep to dig for quick sound editing it may take you years to dig into the menus and maximize its potential but for the price you can't beat it.
