help on QS8 multitimbral mode?
Posted by Stephanie on August 23, 1999 at 02:57:43:
I've been a QS4+ owner for 4 years, and when I decided to dump my "toy" keyboard I naturally went for a QS8.
Mostly I want to use it as a controller and set that up just fine. For my current project, though, I'd like to use some of the onboard sounds in conjunction with Cubase as my sequencer.
Great, I thought -- it should be just like the QS4+. Well, ok, not *quite*, but they work the same way sort of in general, right?
Um. Actually after almost a full day, I still haven't managed to get things working properly.
Here's what I set:
Keyboard mode: OUT-1
General MIDI: OFF
Set it on User 00 (Multitimbral)
On every channel: MIDI INPUT ON, MIDI OUTPUT ON, KEYBOARD ON
In the sequencer:
Set up a short MIDI file containing:
Control change 0 (bank select) and bank 1
Program change 108 (which actually means 107)
A bunch of test notes
So what happens? Well, the QS8 ends up playing the notes, but using program 107 in the GM bank instead of Bank 1! Grrrr!
Any ideas for making this work properly? What am I missing? I'd be glad to provide the other settings if I've missed mentioning something relevant.
who has come to appreciate the simpler user interface on her E6400, heh :)
