: Hello, I'm having a couple of problems with my
: QS8 keyboard.
: I sent an email to Alesis a month ago to try and get help but never got a response...
: 1st) The Mod Wheel sends out midi data when I leave it centered. If I press record on my sequencer (Cakewalk Pro Audio 8.0) and disconnect every other synth I have connected, it records changes in the position of my Mod Wheel without me touching it. I also see the midi in light flicker on on my
: Midi Express XT unit. I tried disconnecting my midi cable going into my QS8 figuring,possibly Cakelwalk or my Midi Express was sending out signals to
: the QS8 and it was just mirroring them back. That wasn't the case either...I have no idea what the problem is and nothing's more anoyying
: than hearing modulation on a drum track..hehe..
: 2nd) Now and then I get an exclamation point on my lcd screen next to where it says the program number. When this exclamation point appears I get distortion coming out of my keyboard.

: 3rd) When I put the QS8 into Mix mode, I now and then get a loud sound coming out of the aux outs. Almost like a siren. Even with the volume on the QS8 all the way down I still get this sound coming out of the aux outs. I disconnceted all the midi cables & the audio cables for the main outputs hoping maybe one of the cables was bad and somehow bleeding a sound over to my aux out jacks...No such luck again..

: IF someon could please help me it would be greatly appreciated.
: Thank you in advance

You can try the reinitializing the keyboard (power up the unit while holding 0 & 3 buttons) but it seems more like your QS8 needs servicing.
