Rediscovering the AN1x - Hoover

I have been a reader of this forum for a while, but this is my first post. I recently picked an AN1x and a few other Synthesizers after taking a long break from music (lockdown boredom maybe). I previously owned an AN1x is the early 2000's and I had forgotten how deep this machine was, and how great it sounded. I wanted to ask if anyone had tips or had already created a 'Hoover Sound', as keen to try it.
Also, is anyone aware of any Mac compatible editors? I found a CTRL pannel for the AN200, but it's probe to Sysex errors when editing the FEG or effects. Thanks

Welcome. I don’t have an AN1X but maybe google for generic tutorials. As I recall the Hoover is detuned saw waves and a pitch envelope among other things. It should be doable. Good

Not my cup of tea - but here's a project that reproduces the sound. Perhaps that explanation will help?

Hmm, yeah sounds like a lot of super-saw with octaves. :-)
