: : I have a QS8 synth connected to a laptop computer using the serial port on the synth and a cable I bought from Alesis. My problem is that the computer will talk to the synth just fine, but the synth will not talk to the computer. On sequencing program (Cakewalk, Encore, etc.) I can get no input from the synth. I sent an e-mail to Alesis several months ago and they said this is an issue with Win98. Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone know of a solution. Alesis doesn't seem to be in any big hurry to update their serial driver (ver 2.0).
: : Thanks, Mike
: Alesis has an updated serial driver for win95/98 (v3.04) freely available (since 2/6 this year) at: www.midiworld.com/quadrasynth/qs_swlib.htm. Works great for me (win98).
Thanks for the help. That did the trick. Alesis doesn't seem to have a link to that page on the software section of their web site.
