The QS8 is an awesome machine for my fellow dark creatures who synthesize dark music and ambient

textures. The upgrade option &quot;sanctuary qcard&quot; is an essential for anyone who writes gothic music.

The 8 produces some of the most scariest choirs, and some of the most spine chilling pipe organ sounds available on this

dark planet. All in all, a great synth for those of us who live by the moonlight...........

The worst possible keyboard for the working professional. You'll like playing

it so much you'll never write the songs you were hired to write. You'll lose

your job, your girl friend...even your dog will shun you because you won't

stop playing to feed it. An amazing machine. It's hard to get past preset 00. Yep, I own one. Alesis

creates cutting edge technology at affordable prices. Sound like a commercial.

You bet...order one today.

When looking for something to use as a master controller/main keyboard, I looked at Kurzweil, Technics, etc. I was floored when I heard the QS8! It had everything I was looking for in terms of price, sounds, feel, EVERYTHING! Plus it's small enough that it fits in the back of my car (a Geo Prizm) in a roadcase. I wasn't too thrilled with the organs until I plugged in headphones and got the full stereo effect of the leslie simulation (I had been running it through a Yorkville Bloc100K amp). All I can say is WOW! With this and my old standby (a Roland JX8-P) I am set for any gig.

This is a truly awesome machine. The sounds are amazing and the Keyboard action is the best that I have ever used. For anyone considering this purchase it is a definite must have for the money.

This is the first synth I've ever owned. I wanted one because I studied and

play piano, pipe organ and a bit of harpsicord and souln't afford the money or

space by a long shot to get the real things. I also wanted to do some composing

which the sounds in a synth and MIDI would allow me to do. Well I was in for a

shock when I got it home and started palying around with it. A Bosendorfer and

a bunch of grand organs in my living room? I knew it would be good but was amazed

nonetheless. I have spent a lot of time playing really good pianos (Steinways,

Baldwins and a couple of Bosendorfers) and I recognized immediately that the

piano sample had to be a Bosendorfer. No one else makes a bottom end that

sounds like that. Too bad the extra couple of low keys on the real Imperial Grand

aren't there. The key action is fantastic and has no apologies to make to any of

the real ones I'm familiar with. I agree with others that the electric guitar sounds leave a lot to be desired but

some of the acoustic ones are fine. I'm actually a bass player (I only play keyboards

but don't consider myself a keyboard player) and there are lots of fine bass sound

to choose from. I'm going to have a great time with all the other amazing sounds when I hook into

my PC and start doing some sequencing. I have only dabbled with the effects but

they seem to have the powerful capabilities I'm used to as a mixing engineer.
