I got a second-hand AN1x for $600 2 years ago, and maybe I paid a lot overprice because you can get them cheaper. But it's worth every $ and even more then so! A calm blue colour, warm sound and easy-to-use makes this machine to a winner for a long time, maybe AN1x also becomes a classic. Both JP8000 and MS2000 was released at aproximately the same time and at same price. In my opinion, you get the most for the money if you choose AN1x. You can olso download a lot of free sounds from internet, most of them very useful. I love it and I think I don't sell it. Ever. Only one bad thing: the very-sensitive AT-function of the keyboard, but I can live with that.

I've owned a an1x for more than 2 years now and it still suprises me, the sounds are really good and the seq is perfect. I love the sound of this machine and always will. great filters and pushable knobs (u can see witch position it on and hold it to make fine adjustments) But it looks really shitty and its not usable as a good midi controller not all the contollers send midi so some knobs are unusable. i hate the presets but making your own voices is really easy and fun. but its still the best synth 450 euros can buy.

The AN1x is a very good one. Why? Sounds very good and I like the touch of the key's. Better that those of the CS1x i've got. I like that analog feel of this synth. This synth i a almost unlimited source of sounds. Tip; Download the editor and use it together with this synth. You become a real sound designer. I like it, I like it. When you like analog buy this one. O.k. a wooden case instead of a plastic one should be better. Gentleman from Yamaha the next time.....

Greetings.

MoooooN

I have Analogue, Digital and VA synths, and I can say that the AN1x is the best VA I ever used, and I used a JP-8000, Nord Lead, Nord Modular (I own one), Nova, Prophecy, and Plug ins. Mercury-1 is cool as well.

A great purchase this. I got it late 1998 and since then it is still my synthesizer of choice. Smooth creamy pads, organic leads, glassy bells, dirty gritty basses, bizzare FM harmonics...this synth is the dogs proverbials.

And it's SO easy to program. God-damn it, if only music-making were as easy as programming a sound on the AN1x is. The matrix can be a pain at times [try changing a delay from 150ms to 350ms], the aftertouch is a bit sensitive and the CS-clone case sux, but other than those minor faults this synth is great. This synth allows you to get away with some really weird-ass sounds.

For me though it's not a question of whether or not it's a VA. The important aspect is that this synth suddenly becomes the weird instrument you programmed, instead of just a collection of numbers. Used right and the sounds of the AN1x have got a conviction to them...an authority.

With an alpha wheel and a brushed steel case surrounding its internals the AN1x would easily be a classic. If you'll allow me a car analogy: We have all the performance of a Dodge Viper in the body of a Ford Escort.
