*** Sequencing my QS with Cakewalk ***

I’m now starting my first sequencing job with the QS6.1. I’ve used Cakewalk and other synths for many years, but now there’s some doubts coming in. Namely, my questions are:

1) Is it possible to use various factory Mixes at the same time? I mean, suppose I have Mix1 which uses channels 1 and 2, and Mix2 that uses Channels 1, 2, 3 and 4. If it’s possible to use these 2 mixes at a time, how can I address and control each of it so that the various midi channels can be correctly separated into various tracks?

2) While sequencing various patches, Mix mode is required. How do the effects work? Can you use different effects for each individual program? Or inside a Mix the effects are fixed to all the programs? If so, how can I use, let’s say, delay on a leads programs, reverb on drums, overdrive on guitars, etc etc?

3) Finally, I’m having a problem. When I choose sounds on Cakewalk’s main window, bank and program change are correctly transmitted to my QS. But, let’s say I have 5 tracks each on a different midi channel, when I move the cursor in cakewalk, I cannot hear the proper sound on my QS. Rather, I must use the page buttons to choose the midi channel so that I can year that sound in solo. Before, with other synths, if I’d select a track on Cakewalk that would immediately change the sound to that precise midi channel chosen on cakewalk rather than on the synth.

On final thing is the Unisyn software. I might be stupid, but I don’t know how to install it. In the CD-ROM, I got a Unisyn profile, or what the name is… but how do I install it? Do I need the base software for that?

Oh well, and that it. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much to everybody for any incoming help!
