I often hear of the An1x, but have never used on.

It's not about having a nice UI layout on screen for me. In fact VST instruments, regardless of how good their UI is tend to not get me twiddling nearly as much as hardware UI's do.

Having hardware synths I can program physically rather than just use as a sound module is one of the main reasons I buy them.

A lack of quick/good UI can frustrate me with hardware though and lead to me just not using it as much as other knobbier synths.
