: Thank you, this was very helpful, it got rid of my echoing problem. However I have encountered a few other problems. For one, when I play back the recording nearly everytime at least a few notes stick. Also, the programs I record into cakewalk lack quite a bit in comparison to the program if I was just playing in program mode. Let me clarify that a bit. For example the grit organ is obviously lacking when I play and record it through mix mode rather than just playing it in program mode. The piano seems to have no reverb when I play it through mix mode....this kind of thing. If you (or anybody else) could provide any help with this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help so far.

: : Change your keyboard mode back to Solo and then go into Cakewalk --> project options and set Echo Mode to NONE.
: : In Cakewalk you can then always use Midi Omni setting (for Midi input) then simply use the PAGE buttons on your QS to change which midi channel you want to play that part on. for example:

: : In Cakewalk track 1 - set instrument to Controller 0, PRE1 True Stereo, input source Midi Omni. On keyboard (I assume you are using Mix Mode 00) use PAGE buttons and set QS to use channel 1. Now play your part and record your song.
: : Now add track 2 in Cakewalk - set it to another instrument - perhaps one of the BASS instruments on channel 2, again use Midi Omni as input source. On QS, use PAGE button and change to channel 2. Now record your bass line and continue in this method for the other instruments you want to use.
: : The key here is to turn ECHO mode off in Cakewalk and keep the QS Keyboard mode set to SOLO. That way the QS continues to play its' own sounds without having to route them THRU Cakewalk.

: : Hope this helps.... Dave.

Dave, I also am a new QS8 user and have had problems like Jon's, so thanks for the info. but after recording 3 tracks using the above info, my 4th track started changing programs on the QS8 by itself about halfway thru the playback. ? What'd I do wrong.
