I agree with the previous reviewer... I have a cs6x, an1x, virus and a korg triton...

each of these synths are powerful in their own right. Korg as you know is the flag ship workstation sampler, pretty good; the cs6x has some great sound making capabilties but limited features compared to Korg (Yamaha always seem to limit features, and focus on sound...and we can see the result...yamaha sounds are always cutting edge).

an1x is a powerful analog modelling very different from cs6x (the plg 150 an plug in board in the cs6x creates something similar to an1x, though not as powerful of analog modelling).

Virus has wide range of sounds, and some of it sounds very digital! For thick analog-like sounds, i still prefer an1x. an1x can create absolutely creamy pads that warm you as much as a fireplace in antartica when you listen to it :)

stupid yamaha always discontiues groovy products like an1x, etc for some strange reason.

so I would recommed those who have an an1x, don't buy another cs6x, rather buy a cs6r (rack version) and hook it up to an1x and you could get a dual-sonic powerhouse!

Hi Ouro a hobbyist user writes:
I had a cs6x, you are right in thinking its good for club trance...cs6x is more euro-trance. If you want goa trance like astral projection, with really good cost, get the yamaha an1x...you can get one for $350, and this keyboard is pure analog modelling..it doesn't have drum sounds (you could program your own though)...but for Goa, this keyboard knocks the living crap out of other mid-range va synths like jp8000 (in terms of sonic power and programming precision)...the AN1x actualy has filters that are much phatter and farm more aggressive than the $2000 supernova. Virus and Nord leads are too overrated, esp for the price range they are in.

The an1x has really cool features for goa trance like free-eg function, Phhhat filters, step sequencer, ribbon controller, 8 knobs (each knob can have 8 parameters, so that's like having 64 knobs!), 3 foot controllers are possible, and the cool scene-memory feature originally developed by yamaha...plus there is a guy Greg Gregson, he wrote a an1x editor online (its a free software! Go to yamahasynth.com and get the link for this really cool software!)...

This machine ROCKS for goa...i have a roland juno106, and the an1x...ever since i got the an1x, the juno remains in the closet :)

im sorry, i dont have a review, but a question:

im looking to get a synth. my main style is goa/psy trance and was wondering if this synth would be any good for that. please keep in mind that goa/psy trance is nothing at all like regular club trance, which people say this is pretty good for.

what i really want is a virus or a waldorf ktk (well..duh, who doesnt?), but for the time being both those synths are cost prohibitive. i was also thinking of a korg ms200, but i dont think its gonna really be able to do what i need.

i was thinking of getting the cs6x for now and then adding the virus or waldorf later on. the cs6x is pretty cheap, and i can get the non keyboard version of the virus or waldorf and use the cs6x to control it.

i already own (thnx to a kindhearted, but uninformed family member) a yamaha dx-200 so i can hook that up easy for some fm crazyness.

i dont know....does that sound like a good plan?

thnx for your input
