Comments about Sound Quest MIDI Quest XL 10:
I bought this unit so I could edit my hardware in Cubase 4. After two months and pulling all of my hair out of my head I gave up. Sure, the concept is great, control your hardware like it's software, but in practice it never worked. The plugins do not remember midi port settings, to my dismay, and when they did work (for less than 5 minutes), they didn't for long. Using more than one plugin at a time caused midiquest VST to crash, every time. I even tried contacting SoundQuest about my issues, and their support is a joke. So what am I left with? A semi-decent standalone hardware editor, that has plugin support that doesn't work. Avoid this software.
