: I have noticed that when playing my QS8 I seem to
: get variations in pitch sometimes for the same key, for the same program. A good example is the snare drum sound in the DM5 Drums program. Sometimes the pitch of the snare is random. I am using Cakewalk 6.0 and notice that if I select Normal for the bank change method this will fix the problem, and the snare will be consistent. I am using Cakewalk 6.0 home studio, the QS8 is set on Multimbral Mix 00 and Midi out is set to OUT 1 on the global menu.

: What causes the pitch change? It seems like it must be this bank change thing but I am not sure. Any help is appreciated.


Although I don't have a QS, yet, I DO know that many programmers will apply a random pitch generator to some percussion sounds to give it a more realistic sound....notice anytime you hit a real snare, depending on where you hit it, it has a different pitch. This is pretty common in most synths nowadays. Hope this makes sense!!!
