Thanks for the info. Since posting I have also found a salesman who is knowledgeable about the QS8.1 and is a fine player too. Also have gone back through the manual a few more times. This reminds me of when I switched to digital from the wet darkroom for my photography (now what?). As you suggest, it does appear the computer is the way to go, maybe get a G4 or something compact to set next to it. Still don't know about file sizes, but they appear manageable. Downloaded an MP3 of the Bach Chaconne, which was appx 150MB in wave format (don't recall exactly, but the Chaconne is about 12 minutes or so). Then again, that was only one instrument, so questons about how the file size is influenced by more instruments.

: - If you really want to be able record multiple tracks you'll need to invest on a newer computer, with a good soundcard. You can then connect the audio output of the alesis to the line in of the card. And yes, audio files are very large. You would record it in a wav and then burn it into a CD. If you're ready to take the plunge I would suggest do some homework on what you want/need to make sure you buy wisely.
