One difference between our setups is that you're using the serial driver and I'm using a MIDI connection via a SoundBlaster Live card. Maybe that has something to do with it. Or maybe it's my stitched-together computer: Pentium 266, but basically put together from spare parts.
: : The new CD-ROM that came with my not-so-new QS8 (got a good deal on a demo model) includes SoundDiver. Many messages in this forum mention Unisyn, and apparently SoundDiver has replaced Unisyn on the newer CDs. SoundBridge and FreeLoader from the CD work fine with my QS8, but SoundDiver doesn't. It displays a message that the keyboard isn't responding, and when I give it the OK to scan for a device, Windows displays an error message and closes SoundDiver. I've also found that SoundDiver's menus are very sensitive to having the mouse cursor placed in exactly the right position (a bit below the menu heading) before they will open, and still they sometimes won't open. I downloaded and installed the latest update from eMagic, but that didn't seem to help. I'm wondering if any other SoundDiver users, or would-be users, have had problems trying to use the program.
: I have used soundDiver with my QS8.1 since March and have not had any problems with it as long as the serial driver works properly. I especially like the Dive! option which loads any patch from the library into the edit buffer which you can then store. It is much quiker and easier than downloading a whole bank from freeloader.
