Don't buy a QSR if you are looking for a sampler!
It takes an hour just to download 8Mb and you can't edit your samples or SampleCell instruments on the synth(like reverse, cut, paste, fade etc.). Since the QSR sends all the samples thru the midi cable and not thru SCSI you can't use it with programs like WaveLab and ReCycle.
The QSR has only got one filter, and you can just change the CutOff and not the Q-value(resonans). The ESI-4000 wich is the cheepest EMU sampler has got 18 filter types and many more features than the QSR. There are also huge sample libraries for the AKAI and EMU samplers.
The QSR is a synth, the sample flashram is just a bonus.
Have a look at the ESI-4000(EMU) and the A3000(Yamaha).
