I tried what you said, but to no avail. using the Bome's, I have gotten the qs to send midi data, and i even got it to transmit the bank i wanted successfully (so my computer said). However, When i checked the qs, the bank was not there.

: Cakewalk, is an excellent tool for sysex management. Go to SYSEX View, and click on "Receive".
: It should give you a list of preloaded features (sysex requests) such as singele program or all data.
: I would recomend selecting "all data" first, this will transfer your current setup to the computer.
: Save the file when the transfer is complete. Once it's safe, you can select "Load Bank" in Sysex View,
: and browse your computer for any files with .syx extension, (Alesis only of course).
: The bank then can be transferred to the QS. It can be a single program or an entire user bank, you'll see
: which one it is from the file size. When you transfer a single program from the computer to the QS it will go
: into the Edit Buffer, and you'll have to store it to a user bank location to keep it.
: If you load a complete user bank, it will overwrite your existing user bank, that's why you want to
: save it before experimenting.

: : Wow. I am extremely aggravated. I feel like I have tried everything to load sysex into my qs8 and I just can not get it to work. I am using the Bome's SendSX at the request of ALesis Customer Support. I have connected the qs8 using a Uno Midiman USB connector (with one midi in and one midi out converginging to a usb cable). I am running windows xp. I also have Cakewalk and Freeloader. Here is the thing. I know nothing about midi at all. every time I try to learn it, i fail, such as with this. Do i need to change a setting on the QS8? The I/O is already set to MIDI. I did see something on here about sending the entire user bank over, and i think i did that right, but doest that erase the user bank and allow me to load new patches? Do i have to erase the user bank or patches to load new ones? can I load just one patch at a time in echange for erasing an existing user patch? The Bome's Sens SX shows that it is sending the bank I want to go into the QS8 but it is not there, or I can not find it. I have seen the extreme knowledge you guys on this site seem to have and I would be very thankful for any help, I know I listed a lot of stuff here. Thank you.
