My Alesis Quadrasyth is about 12 yr old. I've inadvertently lost "St. Peters" mix. The new Alesis Co. owners don't have the info I need: Would you please post the "recipe" for the St. Peters pipe organ setting (w/ timpani & cymbal crashes)? gf

re Quadrasynth pitch fluctuation: Easy fix! Remove cover. On the pitch bend, remove the metal cover (size of a dime)by bending back tabs. Blow out any dust & use alcohol to clean if necessary. Reassemble after dry. On a tri-rack I use my Alexis as a piano/brass/ workhorse in conjunction w/ a Nord for organ/elec pno and a little Roland-200 on top jack for alto sax, pedal steel & effects. I've experimented w/ enlarging the reader w/ a flat rectangular magnifying glass to no avail.

i have had my quadrasynth for about 9 years and use the keyboard on it as a master. In the past i have used loads of synths, juno 1, 106, sh101, d50 loads of yamahas, ensoniq, korg, kawai etc. I connot understand anyone saying a bad word about this synth. The sounds are very useable it has some awesome pads, great rhodes, good synth sounds and smooth in the mix. In fact i would say the ob8 pad is my best pad from any synth ive owned. The other thing i love about this is the layering and keyboard splitting you can make massive sounds and they sound great and nice and refined and mellow. Yes the buttons are funky, the screen is too small and it can be temperamental but i would never part with it. Look beyond all this and this is a great multi purpose synth and in my eyes a classic. It beats the d50, m1 etc hands down. This keyboard is very underestimated and understated and can be had at bargain prices

id give this one a pass unless it was free then maybe give it a shot. well i got mine cheap a hundred fifty bucks. general observations. big bulky tanklike. terrible display almost cryptic. horrid soundset. some good pads to be heard here if you take the time. additive synthesis with a non resonant filter humbug i tell you. it is for sure one of the most well boring pieces of kit i have owned. i am really regreting buying it and well will most likely sell it. i shall give it another go but overall i would say this is the worst piece of gear i have ever owned. even tho its solid and well built it has the fun of being stranded on a island with a nun that used to be a man who looks like danny devitos twin sister.
