I just got my Q80, and I'm using it with a Casio keyboard. I made a song on the keyboard, and I'm trying to copy it onto a disc. I don't have a problem with recording the individual tracks to the Q80, but when I try to change the tone for the next track, the first one changes to. Does anybody know how to fix this, or will the Q80 even do that? Please e-mail me if you know what to do.

The latest version of this is the Q80 EXe which is 3rd generation of Q80 series. Got mine at for $300 new. 32 midi tracks, two midi outs, I love it.

I have Logic on my PC but I find most things are just way easier to do on the Q80 (my flavor is writing Trance). The Q80 uses Motifs (aka patterns) that can be stored and placed anywhere in any of your songs. With the way the front panel is laid out there is very minimal menu flipping.. It's such a breeze!! It's better than the MMT8 for sure.

Just picked up this little guy recently. I love it, it's loads of fun, but the one question I have is how can I access the saved files from the q80 on a PC or vice versa. I mainly use cubase to do sequencing, and bought this mainly for live situations. I was hoping I could just create general midi files of all my tracks and load it into the q80. If there's anyway to do this could someone give me a hand? thanks ~rob

I've had mine for two days. I'm using it to sequence on a Kawai XD-5 drum synth (and using a TR-505 as a input controller into it). Love it for the most part. Had the basic workings down pat and made a little song in about four hours, with help from the biblical-size manual. One beef I do have is that you are forced to insert motifs or sections on a track, you can't paste over sections of a track (inserting always shifts everything down however many bars...). I guess I'm just not used to hardware sequencing yet but I love it. All tracks can be put on repeat so if you want to do live mixes it's quite possible and not overly difficult (but no solo function). Bought mine for $200 and I think it was quite worth it. It is a great looking device (the flashing lights and lighted LCD make me look like a professional.)
