Price is right. I've never had one, but I've had other cheap brands, Kaysound seems to be right in line with them, value-wise.

hey bdgr,dafduc,
thanks for the replys...so far everything seems to work on it...one thing that strikes me odd, is that when i pwr off, and on i have to reset any octave or velocity settings, not a big deal,takes a couple of seconds..would this be typical???just curious?
thanks again

Yeah, typical. Hey, when you move the pitch wheel, does it respond immediately? I had a Miditech controller where the wheels and knobs were just useless, they responded so slowly...

Thast's not the controller, that's the synth. On a QS or a B4, it DOES work like a Leslie. The QS, you may have to program to get that, but most of the Hammond presets already have it.

as it is right now, it seems to give that tremelo or vibrato effect.But its kinda spacy and fast, seems it works the same no matter what sound..

It sends a moid wheel change message, and the synth does whatever it's programmed to do when it gets a mod wheel change message. B4's speed up the Leslie, and so do QS's in Leslie mode.

You'll get used to thinking this way soon.

Sorry.

Alesis QS-8 (or 7, or 6.1, or 6.2, or 7.1, or 8.1, or 8.2, or R). An 8.1 is my main rig.

And Native Instruments B-4 is a software clone of a Hammond B-3.

Good luck.
