: Get rid of the desktop sequencer and get a PC! (If you do just be sure to a relatively "mainline" sequencer such as Cakewalk or Qubase). In addition to getting the incredible flexibility that computer/software based sequencing offers, if you ever decide to start using a flash RAM card to store sequences, samples or mixes/programs you will need a PC and Alesis's Soundbridge software to load the card - I think that using Soundbridge is the only way to do this).

: Your problem in getting the patch changes to work could be a couple of things:

: 1. The QS6.1 is in General Midi mode and will not respond to program/bank changes. If this is the case go into Global Edit and change the GEN MIDI to OFF.
: 2. The hardware based sequencer needs to be "Controller 0" to send program/bank changes. There are about 4 different methods used by different synths to trigger bank/patch changes.
: 3. The QS6.1 is set to ignore midi program changes - another setting in General Edit mode - check your manual.
: 4. You are not in User Mix 00 and therefore do not have appropriate midi channels activated.

: Sequencing questions have been addressed a number of times in this forum - do a search and look at some of the older posts - most of the answers are there. There might also be something specific to your hardware sequencer that needs to be addressed - anyone out there familiar with this setup?

: Good Luck.........Dave

Thanks for the advice Dave. Sorry it took me so long to get back with a response I think the problem was that my GM mode was on it is Reponding to all patch changes. As for Computers I was thinking about getting am apple G3 has anyone tried it with their Alesis Yet???
