Things like the built-in step sequencer and arp were more important then. The knob recording has also been surpassed by the Minilogue's motion recording, etc. The sound is great if that's all you're concerned with, and it has it's own unique voice. I might be selling mine soon though.
Also lots of the 90s VA synths are starting to fall apart, so tact switches and knobs may need replaced. I agree with Hades too, that the Nords are also great.
This is very true. I do very much like the sounds of the an1x, but they are getting older.
Im still going to keep an eye out for one and see what i can find. The NL4 looks really good. But its a bit pricey.
Ill keep looking tho. Maye a korg monologue and minilogue. Have a mono and poly both for a reasonable price. Seems like they would be good for begginers also.
I still love those keyboard synths that mold sounds.
Jp8000s look cool also.
