Dave, I saw your other note, about your troubles with the piano sounds on the QS8, and they sound exactly like what I'm hearing - I'm also running it through a Roland KC500. I notice that the treble on the PureStereo sound is the worst offender, which is too bad because the bass notes are so very nice....

Did the configuration you describe below (left main to left input on one amp channel, right main to right input on a different amp channel) make anything sound better, or just louder? (Wish I was home so I could try that out....) Have you gotten any other advice/input that's been useful/helpful/discouraging? Is there anyone out there in ForumLand running the QS8/KC500 combo who doesn't have this problem?

: This is basic to many of you but I am a little confused about the outputs and amping the QS8 and I think that is giving me some of my problems with the piano sounds. I have been running just one line, left main, to the left input of channel on my Roland KC500. It sounds forced and ugly and wierd and high volume in the mix with a big band. So now I have ran a line from the right main output and plugged it into the right input of another channel on the Roland and the volume is up alot. So it is confusing because why shouldn't I run a right and left main into the right and left of one channel on the Roland. Or, run the AUx outputs to another channel and so forth. Just what do some of you do in live direct to amp situations and what should I be doing?
: I also read in the manual to keep the volume slider on the board all the way up and adjust with the amp for volume.
: Thanks, Dave L.
