I have found that you do not need a midi interface to hook directly into the game port of your computer from and to the midi in/out on the QS (or, for that matter, many other synths). What you do need is a simple and very inexpensive adapter available at most big computer and musical instrument stores.
I do agree, however, that the midi connection is much slower than the parallel connection. Therefore, if you can use the parallel connection without interfering with other devices, it makes a lot of sense. On my set up, I cannot easily do it because of conflicts with other peripherals.
