: : If I recall the change from the QS8 to 8.1 was purely ergonomic. A larger display and some button changes, I believe the sounds were untouched.

: This is not what Alesis claims: they say "Plus, we’ve enhanced the General MIDI sound set so that composition and playback of compatible files are even better sounding than before". As I recall, the worst weakness of QS8 was in the poor General Midi section (as other people say), so an improvement would be appreciated.

: But how much where they improved?

: And did they change the sampled waveforms or only the sound programming? And is the GM section in QSR programmable or only presetted?

: Thanks in advance

I believe the tweaks to the GM soundset were in the patch programming such as effects etc. The basic waveforms did not change. You can edit these sounds but saving them to the user bank will make them impossible to use while in GM mode.
