: I just bought a used qs8 (ebay). I have a test period and I'm trying to figure out if this is
: a decent instrument. My wife plays the piano well, I play the radio. The upper 6 notes on
: the keyboard sound flat to us both when in the piano program group. When in other groups
: the notes don't sound flat. Could a previous owner have adjusted the individual notes and
: if so how do I get back to the factory presets.

: One other question. I seems that different keys have different loudness for the same level
: of touch. Is this normal, does the keyboard need cleaning, can this be fixed. I would appreciate
: any emails or postings. Thanks very much. JM

My qs8 got some water in it from rain this past summer (thanks road crew), and I experienced the different loudness for the same level of touch. What corrected it was a good cleaning of the contacts inside by a qualified keyboard tech. It seem the water mixed with dust inside and wreaked havoc with the contacts. It was very noticeable on velocity sensitive patches like the piano. Maybe something to look at.
