: Hello,
: I have an Alesis qs6.1 and a Yamaha S30. I would like to use the two together during live performance in my band. My problem is I am trying to be able to change a patch(mix) on one of the keyboards and have the other keyboard respond and go to a predefined patch(mix)also. I believe that the Alesis can only output a predefined LSB/MSB etc. But can someone tell me what the Alesis would look for when trying to change to a mix on the user bank as far as what LSB/MSB, etc. would be. Any help is appreciated.
: Thanks

The QS only sends and recognizes the MSB (value of cc#0). For example: Controller 0= Bank Change, Value= 0-the number of available banks. Whereas 0=user bank,1=preset 1, etc. Number of available banks beyond internal is determined by the type of of cards in the slots. I think the limit is 13 before wrap-around.The inablility of the QS to send other than it's preset bank messages is a real detriment to it being a superb master controller.
