: I BOUGHT A QS7 LAST YEAR.FIRST TIME OWNING A PROGRAMMABLE SYNTH. WOW-I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO BE A BRAIN SURGEON TO UNDERSTAND THIS BOOK.HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WORK SOME OF THE BASIC FUNCTIONS.HAVING PROBLEMS UNDERSTANDING HOW TO USE THE EDITING FUNCTIONS.NOBODY CLOSE TO ME TO GET ADVISE. WOULD LIKE TO SET UP AN ARP ODDESY SOUND,DUAL OSCILLATORS, USING A PEDAL TO SLIDE BETWEEN NOTES. CAN ANYBODY HELP ME? HAVENT PLAYED IN 20 YEARS SO ALOT OF THIS EQUIPMENT IS GREEK TO ME. THANKS FOR THE HELP.
And a rocket scientist, too, possibly.. :)
I myself have made some progress, though.. much of it
with the help of Geoff Moerke's "QControl" QS editor/librarian
software (for Win95/98). All those arcane parameters in that keyboard display
that fry one's brain are laid out in a very nicely designed graphic interface..
(one of the best ones I've seen so far)
Of course, one needs to apply oneself in understanding the QS's "personality"..
(power & versatility = complexity & difficult learning curve), but if you can take the
time to do this, you will be rewarded with some great unique sounds, I can almost guarantee it.
If you're into midi sequencing, I recommend starting out with a basic Mix setup (User bank 00 as your over-writeable slot) &
a sequencer program (Cakewalk recommended).
Get to understand how to set up & adjust the level & fx parameters, etc.
(and remember, all the Programs in your Mix will have to share a single fx configuration on the "FX channel"..
which can be a head-scratcher.. one of the harder things to nail down on this instrument, I find).
Anyway, happy QS7'ing! (I'll post more as I find out the tricks of it)
