Nice pianos, decent chromatic, can't say anything about organs - don't ever use them, awful el. and acc. guitars, although there are some really special sounds that you may find interesting, to be honest, not a very good basses (it depend of taste though), rather good strings (not too close to acoustic sounds at all of course), good woodwinds, synth are really good, no doubt about that, although you may get in trouble when trying to find a sound for using as a main pad... that's a real problem... fx... what can I say about fx? 8-bit sound of sound blaster - that's exactly how it sounds... drums are nightmare (well, as on the most of synths. If you want a good drum sound - buy a sampler). The controls are also nightmare - I get a headake in a minute when start browsing through the infinite pages, one function per page... To program a mix mode... Don't want even to speak about this... And one more thing - the sounds are too unstable - the same song may sound in 100 ways each time you play it. In two words: if you're not serious about your music and just want to have some fun in a garage with drunk guys from your school band - buy it. But if you want to produce a MTV Top10 Single - relax and forget about it. :-) Remember: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

I had a qs 6 in my project studio for a while and it was a really good piece of gear for the money. The sounds (for a $600.00) synth were great! For someone who wants a midi keyboard to use with their home pc, I would highly reccomend the QS6. The price on the originals is falling fast, but I tried a QS6.1 the other day and it's a lot better. I sold mine because I got a K2000 and the QS6 is not in that league. For the money it's great! BTW- I saw a few people complaining about the lack of auto acomp., sequensor, etc... Remember people, this a a performance synth, NOT a workstation. I give Alesis major props for not including those things and instead giving us some great sounds and polyphony (most of us use cakewalk or something similar anyway, so why would we want to pay for an onboard seq.? If you need this, look for an old used MMT8, they can be had for about 75 beans!

This was my first synth and I am really enjoying it. It adds great texture to my music. I especially like the drum and percussion samples but have no way of sequencing them into a beat. How do I sequence the drum and percussin samples on the Alesis QS6? I was thinking of getting a separate sequencer like a Korg ES1. Does anyone have any suggestions?

You could not ask for a better digital synth in this price range(new). I had one for about 2 years. I loved it and I want to buy it again (or at least the QSR) for the sounds. Excellent pianos and synth leads. I love Fvzz Box!! Fuzz Box Rox!!!!

This was my first synth, I got it like 3 years ago and i've never had problems with it. I regret it being my first synth, as it is difficult to use (editing and such) I hate flipping through pages and pages on the little screen. No complaints about the sounds, they are really good, the pianos, drums and atmospheric sounds are incredible. Decent if you get it around $500
