I bought the 8MB card from Pretec for $89. I have a QSR and it works fine.
If you live in America and you want to buy you can order from Pretec. But if you live in other country you must order from

The type that work with Alesis synths is:
FAD008-P 8MB 5v/5v Flash Card OR
FAD004-P 4MB 5v/5v Flash Card

But if you want to know there is a speed problem that don't let as enjoy the sampling experience.
With MIDI IN/OUT interface you need 70 min! to load an 8MB flash card.
With the serial cable you need about 30 min. Much better but not as a sampler.

But if you really need some new sounds, FX, loops etc the sampling option is very useful because you don't have to buy a sampler full of memory.
There are thousands of free samples in internet to download.
