: The simplest way to play standard midi files in the QS (I have a QS-6, check your user manual if it's the same sequence of buttons on the QS-8.1) is to turn to general midi mode:

: Press Edit Select, then Bank >, then press page > until GENERAL MIDI:OFF, then press value ^ once. The display will change to GM Multi. A lot of midi files will automatically send a GM on message in the beginning which will do the same thing.

: Make sure on Cakewalk you have all the tracks sent to the midi port that your QS is connected to (whatever your midi interface is)

: Pressing play on Cakewalk should then play the midi file.

: : i know nothing about sysex, but it seems i need a sommand to put all tracks on controller 0 for voices and also to either turn gen midi on or off in global edit, depending on the nidi file. I am specifically referring to midi's i have downloaded and playing through cakewalk pa-9 and QS8.1
: : Anybody's help, please??

OK, here ya go...
To get the thing to always use controller 0, you should download the QS6 (or 7 or 8) .ins file from cakewalk home page
...or check alesis web ring, i think boris had it. Here's the syex codes for GM:
GM ON : F0 00 00 0E 0E 10 00 00 02 01 F7
GM OFF F0 00 00 0E 0E 10 00 00 02 00 F7

The Univeral midi code is GM ON: F0 7E 7F 09 01 F7 GM OFF: F0 7E 7F 09 02 F7

I had the same probs and someone was good enough to send these to me
Good luck
