Well, I just got my An1x yesterday. I was greatly assisted in my decision to purchase the AN1X by this forum. I'd only played it once before, a year ago, and liked it but didn't have the cash. Then I started reading reviews of the 8080 in synth mags and started thinking that might be the thing, but was not impressed when I checked it out. It sounded like the 505 to me. So I just stayed with my K2500 and tried to make that sound analog. The problem is the Kurzweil will do anything...if you conceived it beforehand and programmed it. For live work, there is nothing like dedicated knobs, which I now have! I bid $550 for an AN1X I found on ebay, but it went to $700 and I didn't want to go that high. I got lucky and a guy from New Jersey called emailed me after seeing me bid and offered to sell his for $500. We COD'd it, we're both happy, done. This thing is fun, bottom line! I was very pleased to see that you can push the dedicated knobs to avoid sudden jumps in the sound.The sound of this synth is just beautiful, and programming it is much less intimidating than with the K2. I have a question: how do I download sounds? I've downloaded stuff for the Kurz, but it has a floppy drive so that was a no brainer. I have, or rather my roommate has both macs and pcs here in the studio, and I have a MacMan Midi interface. Vot to do?

Very Phat indeed.. every time i sit down with this machine i come up with an absolute stonking new sound. It kicks!.. the only problem is the MIDI implementation which doesn't let you use more than a sound at a time, so i guess i'll just have to go and buy another one!!

yeah... i was the one who wrote that quote... YES I DO AGREE that it does good organs.... my lady friend was impressed unto the quality of the organ sounds on this thing.. and shes a classicaly trained pianist! but the pianos and other stuff.... they sounds "neat" and they're usable.. but they arent TOP grade natural sounds.. ok... im done defending myself... no harm done.. koo dat koo dat...

Quoting from review below: "you mean normal...... uhhhhh.. it does those ok... but its ANALOG MODELING.. so its not really meant for wind/organ/piano.. try a rompler for that 1.." I could not disagree more! It CAN do VERY nice organs and wind. It can't do grand piano though, that's true. (or can it? :) I haven't been able to at least, but you never know :)
