: Hi,

: My QS6 has gone absolutely crazy. When I play
: General midi songs, it plays all kinds of instruments
: other than the ones it is supposed to. By the way,
: I used to be able to play the songs properly before.

: Second problem, probably related to the first, when I
: play an instrument on the second (third, fourth, etc...)
: channel, the only blip I see on the channel readout is
: the first channel. None of the others work, but I can
: still play the DEMO and see that all the other blips are
: working.

: One last thing, tonight was the first time I tried to
: create my own mix on the QS6!!! Maybe I changed something
: I shouldn't have.

: Please Help,

: Abhi

The most obvious cause is probably your global setting. Check to be sure General Midi is turned on. Push [EDIT SELECT], [GLOBAL (the right Bank button)], and then advance the PAGE select to PAGE 7, General MIDI on/off. Select "ON", and the keyboard will automaticall switch to the General MIDI bank, mix 000 (GM Multi). If this doesn't work, try re-initiallizing the keyboard, by turning it on while holding buttons 1 & 3, and then repeating the above procedure. This should work, and set you up for playing general midi files.

Note: these instructions are for a QS8. I think they are the same for a QS6.
