Powerful, fat, clean, dirty... A monster for the price. The "alternatives" (Virus, etc.) do not have the free envelope generator which provides 4 unique time based freely drawn (no ASDF, fully variable) envelopes which can be applied to many useful parameters. The results can vary from the outright spooky to trancelike to musical to rhythmic.

The "alternatives" are overpriced and limited in function.

Well, I bought the AN1X 3 years ago now. When I went to the store I was going for the JP8000. Just aside the JP there was an AN1X and I did some comparison and decided to buy the Yamaha (was also cheaper).

Until now I've never regretted my decision. It is very, very easy to use (even for a novice synth user) and there's is even a fabulous editor for this machine, in fact the editor alone is worth an oscar. There's even a tutorial from Yamaha that actually guides you through the steps to create your own sounds.

The only downside I've found is the weak walwart power supply.

With todays very low prices for a new/used AN1X, I'm looking for a second AN1X to have more voices.

If you're just starting or don't have on or two VA's in your studio yet, you can't go wrong with this one.

I just got my An1x a couple of days ago, and I was utterly amazed that anything NOT analog could produce such a ballsy sound. very impressed, especially with the incredible arpeggiations you can make on this thing -- an idustrial / EBM dream... only thing i am not too keen on is the interface. not bad, but there's plently of empty space in this puppy to have put a few more knobs on it without having boosted the original price too high...

Outstanding synth, very good for it's money (I got mine around 440 euros with no problems).If you want a VA synth with the fattest sound around get AN1x.This is my second synth and we are going to grow old together!

Try gennetix (utility that morphs 2 sounds in 128 variations!) check out Deep Blue, Church bell and Sprinkler in the pads section

This is just a preliminary review. Like the previous reviewer, I scored this sucker for $400 off of Ebay. At that price it's an unbelievably good deal. 2 VCO's with FM and more than adequate cross-modulation abilities make this a programming delight...too bad the interface was designed by a heartless robot. Lack of designated data knob like on the Cs1x makes it cumbersome to alter parameters contained in the matrix. I haven't tried An1xEdit yet though. The sound is amazing. Very organic! Not as bright as the Nord stuff, but just as powerful sounding. The effects are ok, but I usually use them as an afterthought. I'm going to hook mine up to a Drehbank by Doepfer turning it into a knobladen monster! 4 1/2 out of 5.
