Product Description

Alesis introduced the QS8 in 1996, and shattered the price barrier for professional 88-note keyboards. Normal working musicians Ö and those just aspiring to work more Ö could suddenly afford a no-compromise instrument for a very compromising price, and this tradition continues with the QS6.2 and QS8.2.

Featuring serious sounds for serious players, the QS synths are loaded with stunning pianos and keyboards, a soup-to-nuts collection of orchestral instruments, killer drum and percussion kits, and enough amazing synth textures, fat basses, and sizzling leads to keep dance musicians and remixers grooving into the next time zone. A deep programmable synth architecture and four-bus effects processor add the finishing touches. And a wide variety of fresh samples are available from our extensive QCard library.

Whether you need an 88-note workhorse or a do-it-all synth, the QS8.2 and QS6.2 keep your fingers flying for a down-to-earth price.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (101 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "My $599.95 QS6.2 is still making me happier than my expensive Korg PA60 and professional Kurzweil PC88mx."
Sound: I have been using a few branch of synthesizers. This Elesis QS6.2 has owesome sounds, specially when I use in Mix mode. Feature: Mix sounds in 16 channels is the most advantage of this keyboars and very easy to setup or changing sound during playing. The MOD1~MOD6 functions are not effecting sound editting much and hard to understand. I think Alesis should explain us more about these MOD in operator manual Quality: A little bit heavy, but good quality. Value: Comparing to my other synthesyzers, Alesis brings good products to me and reasonable price. Manufacturer Support: Quick and good communications via e-mail and phone. The Wow Factor: My QS6.2 is a silver and the control keypads are black, they are perfect contrast in everywhere. I do not need a magnify glass for to find the key setting. Overall: I have this QS6.2 synthesizer more than a year. I began to like it right after I bought it a few days. Reason I rate it today because my Korg PA60, Kurzweil PC88mx cost me too much money but they are not better than Elesis QS6.2. I feel like I owe Alesis something.
Style of Music: Soft rock, and classic

"THE Heavy Metal Keyboard."
Sound: In my opinion, the sound quality and the sounds themselves both beat my Korg X5D and the leads, (default none the less), are better than ANYTHING I've ever used. The pads are lacking umph, but can be editted accordingly. Feature: I would have given a higher score to features, but the effects are not the greatest (under statement). The delay's timing is screwy, the reverb only has 5 non-configurable settings and the pitch wheel screaches high pitched squeals at anything above or below 2 half steps on most of the sounds. A built in sequencer would have been nice too. Ease of Use: I give it a 9 ONLY because the action is AMAZING. The menu system is majorly diffucult to use as all the options are divided into sub catagories and the divided sub-catagories are divided into individual unrelated pages and then the options have to be accessed by multiple key combintions that are only found in the manual... more annoying then hindering though. Quality: My QS6.2 Litteraly fell off the back of a moving caro truck and smashed unpackaged and corner-wise straight into the pavement. The ONLY damage done was a shattered end cap... Oh yeah, did I mention the entire (except for the end caps) keyboard is made out of metal! Value: If Alesis could market this $100.00 USD less MILLIONS of these would fly off the shelves. I can't see paying $100+ an octave for a basic keyboard. Manufacturer Support: I give it a 10 until/if I'll ever need it. The Wow Factor: Sleeeeeek, thin and sexy! OW! I'd leave my girlfriend for this thing! Overall: The best puchase I've EVER made and will do it again. Alesis has earned my trust to the point of me purchasing their SUMO 300 instead of a KB4.
