Ok well this is what i THINK you need to do:

1. The MIDI In and Out on the QS 6.1 should be hooked to your computer through the MIDI interface on the computer. The Computer should be set to the MIDI ports on the sound card (check your Multimedia settings in the Control Panel [Start>Settings>Control Panel>Multimedia>MIDI Tab])
2. This is where the "I Think" part comes in: Have the MIDI Thru on the QS to the "IN" on the module,and some speakers/headphones to the sound out of the roland.

This setup is if you're playing MIDI from the COMPTUER ONLY. For keyboard to moduly, you may have to hook directly with the MIDI cable, or hook the module directly up to the computer w/ MIDI.

I hope I helped, good luck,
