Problem is: in MIX mode there's not only one program but 16.
The QS has only one FX section, but every program of the mix has its own FX settings.
So you have to make a choice and tell your QS which settings to use (right, that's FX midi channel, as stated in the mails before).
If you do this with a 'special effect' sound that causes much of its 'special' sound with the FX units, then your other programs in the mix will most propably sound 'special', too.
To work around this effect, you have to look closely at the FX input busses (there's usually four of them) and find out what they are all good for.
Now assign your other progs to an FX bus that does something 'normal' (chorus, reverb).
Voila, here you go: your 'special' effect sound still sounds as it should, and the other sounds don't misbehave (too much)
If you have MORE than one 'special effect' sound and want to use them at one time, things get tricky. I'll leave this problem to you...
