Maybe I can get you started thinking in the right direction. Mix mode is multitimbral in that it is already using different channels to layer different programs. When you play a mix with your keyboard, you are playing all of the layered programs in a mix at the same time. SO if there is a mix that you like that you want assigned to one channel - its not going to happen. The secret is that you are going to make your OWN mix for the particular song you are going to record. In your own mix, you will assign programs to different channels in your mix. See your quick reference guide for a beginning explanation of how to "edit a mix." If this doesn't help, maybe you will get some other replies that can explain it in an easier way.

: Hey, I am new to keyboarding and just purchased an Alesis QS6.1, mostly for writing MIDI tracks. I am having a problem... I am getting confused with how the MIXES work.

: I am writing music on a bar graph in a shareware MIDI program. Now, in PROGRAM mode, I can tell it what instrument to play and it'll do it fine, but I can only play one CHANNEL at a time that way, leaving out the drum track. In MIX mode, how do I tell the MIDI program what MIX to use? It keeps wierding out on me whenever I try to play something through MIX mode and I can't figure out how to use the MIX I want. I set it to that mix, but it changes when it starts playing.

: Any suggestions?
