I have 2 questions please:

1. I want to load some piano patches I saw on one of the pages that make the piano sounds
much better. What is the best way to do this and load them into my QS8 without deleting
all of my factory USER Banks? I will want to reset the banks...
Or is ther a way to sample these sounds without wiping any of the User Banks out???
I do not have a ROM card..
Please describe best method and programs, etc...

I know Alesis is coming out with a new QCARD ofr piano in September, but I would like to
try these patches I found.

2. I heard the SBLIVE sound card is a great card. People talk about using these with Cakewalk and
loading Sound Banks/Fonts, etc..
How do people do this?
Do they play a song and record the MIDI on their computer and then apply the sound font?
Or is there a way to have the Alesis access the SBLIVE soundfont as you play??
Thanks for an good description on how to, what I am missing, etc..

I appreciate an email reply if not too much trouble.
