This web site
is dedicated to the amazing little great synthesizer and music workstation Yamaha QS300,
a.k.a. "The Ravers' Babe". Yes it's
true. We are in 2004, 9 years after the first appearance on the market of
the QS300 and probably somebody will say that the QS300 is now obsolete, so
many newer keyboards are filled up with gadgets and all kind of tricks. But
try to play it and you will feel the magic the QS300 can still create !
Downloads Pages you will find a lot of stuff regarding the Yamaha
QS300: from voice files to patterns and styles; from
programs and utilities to links to
other Sites regarding this beautiful synth. By the way, the
Links Pages have
been re-designed and now we have a new
Software Page fully dedicated to the computer programs you can use
with the QS300, including comments, size, O.S. and price (if requested).
The Yamaha QS300 Resources Site would be the compendium of
what is actually available (on the Net) for the Ravers' Babe. Of course, the stuff posted
here must be strictly freeware or shareware.
And now the QS300 Resources Site is the host for your
creativity and your music: publish here
your own compositions, whatever
format you use ! The
Composition Pages are dedicated to
the music composed and sequenced
on the QS300 (in the proprietary
format) of course, but we have as well sections
for MIDI songs and for
mp3 songs, original or covers, that you
are willing to publish and share with other Users.
And if you are a musician
using the QS300 for your music and like to see your name/website listed here
as a musician producing music with the Raver's Babe, we just opened a new
