It's good to have new toys.
Have you read up on the QS6 manual? Lot of good information there, but it can be hard to decipher.
The Roland is a dedicated hard disk recorder/mixer?
So you would have the computer play the QS6 into the VS840?
The QS6 came with software to use the serial interface, which sounds like the way you would have to go, with a notebook.
I haven't used that method myself, but it's supposed to be pretty straight forward.
The other way to go (you can only choose 1!) is a midi interface, which you can get for the notebook for $3-400. Notebook seems kind of limiting.
Since you have a seperate recorder you don't need to record on your computer. I use the computer to record audio tracks.
I use an AWE64 gold card, but I'm finding it is barely passible. I'm thinging about the EMU Audio Production Studio, as they put it: The EMU
Audio Production Studio is a PCI-based audio system that
gives you 64 voices of sampling, multitrack hard disk recording, and
professional real-time DSP effects along with all the software you’ll
need to get professional results right out of the box.

It does digital I/O and uses system ram for sound fonts. Which sound pretty good for $700.
Have to save my pennies.
I would definately try the serial software that came with the QS6, and see if it does everything you need.
Well good luck!
