TECH CPU HD6413002FP16 (family H8/300H) CPU manages 10 voices polyphony based on analog modeling APM subtractive synthesis .
a basic AN1X patch is composed by:
2 digital oscillators VCO
FM a frequency modulation can be applied to the VCO1 to change its frequency, in which case the output of the oscillator will become the carrier.
||saw / saw + pulse /

|saw / saw+ pulse /

||yes, up to sinewave
||yes, up to sinewave
||3 in sync mode
||yes, VCO1 > VCO2
||yes, VCO2 > VCO1
VCO1 is modulated by VCO2 following 4 algorithms with variable FM depth:
1- only FM
2- sync + FM both: sync mode FM applied to master and slave oscillator
sync + FM master: sync mode FM applied to master oscillator
4- sync + FM slave: sync mode FM applied to slave oscillator.
TIP: Slave oscillator's pitch can be tuned.
PERFORMANCE the AN1x can be played in 8 modes:
- standard play
- monophonic :1 voice with legato and portamento time
- unison stack all voices
- dual voices: 5 x 2 voices (assignable to 2 Midi channels)
- stack voices
- dual scenes
- split zone (assignable to 2 Midi channels)
- split unison (assignable to 2 Midi channels).
The special ribbon con be assigned to filter cutoff/resonance, modulation and pan motion.
The 2 scenes buttons get values snapshots for each oscillator then Midi CC#1 interpolates intermediate values for a morphing effect.
LFO up to 2 delayed modulators (5 shapes: sinewave, square, triangle, saw and sample-hold + a mix of combinations) with variable depth and 5 destinations:
- VCO pitch
- VCF cutfoff
- VCA amplitude
- LFO FM depth (slave or master)
- pulse width VCO PWM.
LFO on Filter
ENVELOPE up to 2 EGs:
- EG1 FEG VCF filter: 4 segments ADSR
- EG2 VCA amplitude: 4 segments ADSR
Both EG are also assignable to other parameters including VCO pulse width and VCO pitch.
FILTER digital resonant filter multimode -12/ 18/ 24 dB/ oct slope:
- LPF lowpass
- HPF highpass
- BPF banpass
- BEF band eliminate.
The Key Track setting determines the key tracking of the VCF, changing the cutoff point in accordance with the notes played on the keyboard.
EFFECT digital DSP section features 3 algorithms categories:
- FX A: 8 reverbs models e.g. hall, stage, room ....
- FX B: 5 delays with stereo panning motion
- FX C: 14 insert effects e.g distortion, pitch, 3-band EQ, phaser, autopan, rotary, wahwah ....
SEQUENCER notes entry is directly programmed using the 8 real-time knobs (switch between 1-8 and 9-16 steps) inspired from classic analog sequencers Korg SQ-10.
UPPER - Special performance FREE VOICE EG records knobs movement in 4 different tracks.
ARPEGGIATOR features 30 patterns arpeggiators with 9 subdivide modes and 16 steps programmable sequencer with velocity / gate / swing rate/ latch mode.
SYNC internal clock from 40 to 240 BPM and both arpeggiator and sequencer are syncable to external Midi clock.
MIDI full implementation of CC# and Sysex exclusives.
Both sequencer and arpeggiator output Midi notes to other external devices.
128 RAM patches.
No ROM sounds, factory set can be recalled anytime.
ABOVE: Battery replacement is quite easy and not soldered to the mainboard.
EDITOR Yamaha provides a free computer-based editor for patches named Yamaha an1x editor
It is still available on the official website.
AN APM RELATED FAMILY:
AN-200 is a five voices lap top groovebox with APM synthesis. 5 voices polyphony with different features and a PCM drum kit. It is based on the PLG-150 AN board
PLG-150 APM technology has been also released on modular PLG boards modern AN150 for MU and MO series.
EX5 multi-synthesis workstation including a monophonic AN voice + PCM + VL and more. Rackmount version is EX5R
VST PLUGIN / SAMPLED VERSION there are NO VST or plugins available on the market- here some free samples sets:
