: : Hi.
: : I've had my QS8 for about a week and I just purchased Opcode's Vision for my MAC. I was using Opcode's patch librarian Galaxy to set up the names of the patches I want to use in Vision and I accidently erased my user programs and mixes in the process. How can I restore the user programs and mixes that came with the synth? I know that there are sysex copies of the QS8's banks stored on the bundled Alesis CD-ROM that came with the keyboard, but I have no clue as to restore all of the factory pre-set user banks. Can any one help me with this problem? Do I need to buy a S-RAM card if I ever want to hear the bundled user programs and mixes again?

: Just use the Freeloader program (on the CD-ROM) to load QS8_user.syx (or whatever it's called - I have the NanoSynth CD-ROM so I'm guessing).


Thanks for the help, but I tried opening the user sysex file with FreeLoader, but the file would not open. I tried to use SoundBridge to open the file and it opened fine. When I tried to send the file to my QS8, I got a message saying that the procedure could not continue because no card was present. Any ideas as to what I did wrong and how I can get back the factory-installed user banks?
