COMPUTER KEYBOARD KEYS ASSIGNMENT

You can play notes using your computer's keyboard. 3-4 notes can be played at the same time.

Octave Shifting:

  Letters Q W E R T Y U I O P select the octave (transpose computer keys)

Note Velocity:  

  - and + decrease and increase note velocity.

Key Notes:

                        X =C

                        D =C#

                        C =D

                        F =D#

                        V =E

                        B =F

                        H =F#

                        N =G

                        J  =G#

                        M =A

                        K = A#

                        , = B

                        . = C (one octave above "X" key) 

                All Notes Off  -Space Bar key

Additional functions:

                      P = Toggle Play channel in Mix mode: Selected/Mix Midi General

                      + and - = change Note velocity +/- 5

                      * and / = change Play channel +/- 1

 Important: In QS Program Mode notes are played on assigned QS global channel.

 In QS Mix Mode channel for playing notes could be changed in Mouse Piano or Joystick

 Hint: You can “hang” a note by pressing down a “note” key and while it is depressed, press “octave” key.

 When computer keys are played value of note played is displayed together with channel and velocity on main window’s status bar.

 Custom Note-Key Assignment

It also possible to assign any notes you frequently may use to keys 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9 located under function keys. This could be particularly helpful if you like to simulate drum notes that are being send by Electronic drum kit (Alesis DM3 or DM5) instead of trying to remember which note values are active. Assignment of custom keys can be done in Drum Calibration Window.
