Q-Link has only 8 channels real-time controller. So before you assign the parameter data, try out 
(front panel Q-Link controls), witch one of the controller data is effective. The one I like the most
is the Cut-off & Resonance, especially with synthesiser and effects sounds. For drums I like more 
Reverb & Flanger. The Q-Link controls are recordable and transmit and receive real-time controller data. 

To optimize the controller data. Use the separate tracks for every controller number-parameter. Go to the 
list editor in Cubase or any other DAW, delete all other data controllers for volume and program change, 
if you donít use it, delete it ! Now select the all controller data and go to Quantize and delete doubles.

IDE2SD or IDE2CF or both?

For SD & CF converting we use IDE adapters for the Z4/Z8 & MPC4000, simpler and more cheaper than
SCSI adapters and so easy to install, only format in FAT32. For SD & CF larger than 512MB,
use a computer to format. For more info go to my (Hardware) AKAI Z8 HD Replace Workshop.
