: : Hey! I've had my QS-8 for a while; couple years. I have been using this Cubasis sequencer that came with the package. Somehow I managed to make a sort of recording by using this demo I downloaded off the net called Cubasis InWired. I'm going to go out and pick Cubase VST.

: : What I really want to know is, how do I get a good quality CD burned of my music? The little I did on Cubasis InWired sounded really bad, but at least it gave me hope that my stuff could in fact get on a CD. In short, what do I need to buy? What do I need to plug in? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

: I'm assuming you're using your sound card's line level input. Check your record settings. For music CD's, you'll want to record at 44KHz stereo. Anything less and you'll hear a big degradation in quality. If it's not that, then make sure your levels are set so that the loudest music is nearly peaking at 0dB. Other than that, you might have grounding or connection problems. You probably can't expect your sound card to have perfectly quiet inputs anyway. If you want really perfect you'll probably have to spring for a different kind of input.

You can also use the mic input, however some sound card have optional 20db boost and 5Volt bias settings. Remember to turn both of them off for recording music.
