Got any QCards? They can do wonders to freshen up a QS synth. VIntage Synths QCards is a bunch of fun. Vintage Keys is, too...


There's also a really interesting Qcard called Film Score that Alesis has in the bag. It was finished last spring - don't know when they're gonna release it, but it is quite interesting, extremely unique, very hard to describe, and definitely worth owning.

Looks to me that the most attractive thing about these boards right now is that it's a low cost way to get into some of the XV soundsets. There's only 256 preset patches, which makes me think that they did a broad selection of bread & butter sounds from the JV & XV series. The other 256 sounds are GM & GM2. I haven't physically seen or heard the boards yet, but from the looks of it, the UI may be tough to navigate & you may not have a wide variety of choices (ie, you better like these 3 pianos, or you're SOL).


If you want to expand your sound palette, you may be better served by picking up a used JV 1080 for about $500. I have the Alesis QS 6.1, which I use as a controller, and the 1080, which has fantastic sounds. Both units are quite expandable.
