Alesis QSR QS Composite Synthesis Rack

   (0 reviews)

For MIDI composers and musicians using controller keyboards, the QSR offers the excellent sounds and powerful synthesis engine from the advanced QS7 and QS8 keyboards in a single-space, rack-mount module. 16 megabytes of great Alesis sounds are packed into the QSR, and you can easily expand its sonic library by plugging in a QCard. Plus, the QSR offers the same dual expansion card slots, serial port and CD-ROM software package as the QS Series keyboards, making it one of the best values today in professional-quality sound generation tools.

Chips and Operating System
2.00 and Soundbridge Upgrade

Alesis is happy to announce the release of QS6 software version 2.00. Version 2.00 adds the ability for QS6 users to utilize new features included in the updated version of Sound Bridge software (Version 2.00 for MAC and Version 1.2 for IBM). These features include the partitioning of cards in order to store samples, sysex, and standard midi files on the same card. Sound Bridge also allows the ability to playback standard midi files which have been transferred to RAM cards.

For the QS6, Version 2.00 software is available as an EPROM upgrade kit. This kit is user-installable and comes with all the necessary instructions and tools. The only other tool you will need is a Phillips type screwdriver. The upgrade is available free of charge to registered users who have purchased their units after July 1, 1996. A proof of sale is required to receive this upgrade free of charge. Otherwise, this EPROM upgrade is an enhancement to the original QS6 operating system. All previous QS6 owners must purchase the upgrade through our Parts department at the cost of $39.99 (Plus any applicable sales tax and shipping charges).

The revised Sound Bridge software is currently available for both MAC and IBM operating systems. Soundbridge 2.00 for the Mac and 1.2 for the IBM are available as attachments.
