: My system used to do the same thing whenever I tried to play from Band In A Box. Turned out that BIAB was sending a "Start Song" message before it started playing, and the QS8 responds to this by playing QCard demos. The "Start Song" thing was turn-offable in BIAB's preferences menu, which made the problem go away. Perhaps your sequencer has a similar setting?

: : My system does the same thing. To solve this, just set your start point at bar2 or later.

: : : I've started multitimbral sequencing on my QS7, and can set it up fine, but when one of my 2 Q-Cards is in Slot A, the instant a MIDI message leaves the keyboard, it automatically switches to the Q-Card's autodemo song and starts playing that. It does this when used with a Roland MC-50mkII sequencer AND the Cubasis program that came with the CD-ROM. Take the card out of Slot A, and no problem, but I'd like to have access to both at once.

I was going to suggest the same thing. In Cakewalk, in the Project options I believe, there is a setting in the MIDI section where the seq. will transmit start and stop commands. You would want to disable this as you are not using your software sequencer to start and external sequencer (at least, I hope this is what the problem is).

Good luck.
