While not an instructional tool, I purchased a pretty good editor for the Alesis recently that has helped me understand the KB much better than I ever have in the 5yrs Ive owned it. It is called QSEdit (http://www.soundtower.com). While it does not offer anything new compared to the editor that comes with the QS, it is organized much better. It still requires some studying of the manual to make since of things, but I feel now that I can understand the aspects of the QS that I want to use. I believe there is a free trial download. Take a look at it.
