In Reply to: How do I get QS6 drum samples for use on my QSR? posted by Steve Sheaffer on January 29, 2001 at 18:49:57:

Many of the samples are the same on the QSR and the QS6, and many of the patches are the same
as well, but some are not, like many of the the drum samples I use. The ones on the QSR are probably
the same as those on the QS7 and QS8 (or QS7.1 and QS8.1 ?), but these are not all the same as my
original QS6. If you compare them side-by-side its very obvious that the difference is not effects
(beleive me, I've tried duplicating the patches) but many of the drum sounds themselves
are *completely* different. For example, I use the QS6 standard kit, which makes large use
of samples called "Big O Kick" and "Big O Snare". These are not on any of the other QS
series synths, (except for the NanoSynth which *is* a nearly exact duplicate of the old QS6) , and
nothing there sounds even remotely like them. I bought the QSR becuase I was under the same impression
that it is the sound set of the old QS6 plus more, but there are differences. It is probably the sound
set of the QS7 and QS8 - or possible the QS7.1 and QS8.1 - plus more, but there are clearly some differences
between these and the set on an original QS6. (Just look at the manuals for the lists of samples!)

I'm sure there is a set of drum samples out there somewhere that has similar sounds, but I'd rather
not spend hundreds more dollars to get the sounds I already have. If I did, I'd probably
just buy a NanoSynth and use it as a drum module. I was hoping that there as some way to get
these samples on disk, possibly from Alesis or elsewhere, to burn the card without having to spend
more money. I don't know if they can do this, but since I already bought the keyboard, I figure
I've already paid for the samples!

If not, anyone got a NanoSynth to sell CHEAP?
