Manual #OM52030
Version 1.16
Thanks for purchasing the QRS Music Technologies Qsync. The Qsync is a brand new technology that adds tremendous
functionality and fun to your Pianomation player system. With a Qsync connected to your QRS player system and a standard
DVD player* you will be able to take advantage of an exclusive and exciting technology which allows your piano to play in
perfect synchronization with selected DVD concerts and movies. You will see and hear your piano reproducing the piano
performance as it is being viewed on your video screen.
Once connected into your system you can simply insert a DVD title from our QRS music library, select the corresponding file in
Qsync and start the DVD playing.
The Qsync uses convenient and common compact flash card technology which holds the piano music content and also allows
for easy system updates as new functionality becomes available.
Several features in Qsync allow for flexible integration into your entertainment system such as 38khz serial input port for control
of Qsync from a media server or home automation system. Stereo audio line inputs and outputs with input gain, volume, bass,
treble controls and integrated piano volume control allow for single point volume setting. SPDIF through so you don't loose
connectivity of single output SPDIF signal in your system.
Reading the user guide will introduce you to many other features, so please take time to read the users guide thoroughly so you
understand all the features of Qsync so you can take full advantage of it's functionality.
* A DVD player with an SPDIF or Coaxial Audio Output is required in order to send data to Qsync.

Testing Qsync with Your QRS Controller
The following procedures test the connections and settings of the Qsync box and your QRS controller. Qsync can send a MIDI
signal from it’s MIDI or AMI output to your piano directly, without using your DVD player. These procedures are helpful if you are
using Qsync for the first time or if you are having trouble playing QRS DVDs from you DVD player. This test will verify that your
QRS Controller’s Source is set correctly, that Qsync is working properly and that the connections between Qsync and the QRS
controller are good.
Play a QRS CD from your QRS controller to check volume levels and that the player system is working properly.
See the “Connecting and Using QRS Controllers with Qsync:” section of this manual to connect Qsync to your controller and to set
the controller’s source for Qsync.
Power ON Qsync
Insert the power adapter into a wall outlet and to Qsync’s 5 VOLT DC jack. Qsync will automatically power on.
If the power adapter is already connected it may be in Standby Mode.
Press ENTER, F1 or F2 to power Qsync on.
This display indicates that no CF CARD is present, or that a CompactFlash
card is inserted but, contains no recognizable Qsync music file.

How To Enter Unlock Codes
An unlock code or key is a code you receive specific to your serial number and DVD Title. In
every Qsync package 5 DVDs are enabled for playback without the need of an unlock key.
These DVDs are Diana Krall: Live, Yanni: Live at the Acropolis, Norah Jones: Live in New
Orleans, The Legend of 1900, and Barry Manilow: Live. Those with earlier DVD packages
may have received the John Tesh DVD, which is no longer available, it is also unlocked. All
other DVDs that work with Qsync will require an unlock code.
Unlock codes will appear like the following example:
Serial Number: (Example) 200
Catalog #: Title: Unlock Code:
962001 Billy Joel: Live At Yankee Stadium 01XC
962017 Elton John: One Night Only XCAB
Turn Dial clockwise until you see the name of the title of the DVD you are playing. Then press
enter to select it. The following prompt will appear if an unlock code is necessary.
CODE: ?
Enter Unlock Code
Turn the dial Clockwise or Counter Clockwise to select the appropriate character to match the
first digit of your unlock code. When you have it correctly matching press enter to set the next
character to the right and continue this process until all 4 digits match the code given for your
serial number by QRS. Press enter again after you have entered the 4 characters. The screen
will prompt:
YES
Submit Code 01XC?
Press enter to submit the code. If you make a mistake it will allow you to retry. When the code
is correctly entered it will be saved so you won't need to re-enter the code again. When the
DVD is playing a track, and not in the DVD menu screen, you will then see the following:
{DVD TITLE OR TRACK TITLE}

Play a QRS SyncAlong DVD
Prepare the QRS controller and the Qsync box:
Select the appropriate source on your QRS controller.
For details, find your specific controller on pages 12 through 17 of this manual.
“Connecting and Preparing QRS Controllers for use with Qsync”
On the Qsync box, select the DVD title you wish to play.
See page 6 for details.
“Prepare Qsync to Play a QRS SyncAlong DVD”
Prepare your DVD player.
Set up your DVD player for the correct digital output format. Qsync needs AC3 data to work. Generally a DVD disc will default
to one of several possible AC3 types. AC3 2 channel, AC3 3.1 or AC3 5.1. The Qsync will support these AC formats
automatically. You will need to verify that any given DVD title is defaulting to an AC3 format and not some other format such
as DTS or PCM. Normally a DVD player will allow you to set the default digital mode it will operate in. Always set to RAW or
AC3. Be sure NOT to set to PCM as this format is not used for in the Qsync technology.
NOTE 1: NORMALLY NOT REQUIRED, BUT YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW TO CHANGE SETTINGS SHOULD SOMEONE CHANGE THE SETUP.
Using the setup menu in the DVD player, navigate to the Audio Setup page. Navigate to the Digital Audio options and select Digital
Output / SPDIF / RAW. In most cases the DVD player will retain this setting option and this only needs to be done once.
NOTE 2: You MUST use a DVD AND a DVD player made for your specific Country/Region. For example, the U.S. is in region 1. This
means that all DVD players sold in the U.S. are made to region 1 specifications. As a result, region 1 players can only play region 1 discs.
The DVDs themselves are encoded for a specific region. On the back of each DVD package, you will a find a region number (1 thru 6).
See page 11 for a list of the geographic regions.
NOTE 3: Set the proper TV STANDARD, NTSC for USA or PAL, depending on the country where used.
See the instructions on page 9 to change this setting.
Play the selected DVD from your DVD player.
Insert the DVD that you’ve selected on the Qsync box, page 6.
Select "play concert", or select an individual song, from the DVD title screen on the DVD player.
The song title displays in the top row.
T01 tells us that this is the first track on the DVD.
The F2 button light should turn on, Qsync is syncing to AC3.
The time counter on the Qsync display should start to increment.
All indications that the devices are setup correctly and Qsync is

As MIDI starts streaming to the Pianomation you will see the F1 light
flicker as the piano starts playing, in sync with the audio/video from
the DVD.
Using the DVD player you may start, stop, fast forward, rewind, etc. and Qsync should follow.
As each chapter advances, the next title will automatically play and show on the LCD display.
Special Notes:During playback, pressing the Data dial will allow you to enter "sync adjust mode" providing + / 250milliseconds of adjustment.
If you plan to use the L/R analog audio outputs of the DVD player, connect the left and right line output of the DVD player to
the L/R Line inputs of Qsync. Connect the L/R Line outputs of Qsync to your audio systems line input. Using this option allows
single point volume adjustment for the Pianomation and DVD audio. Using these connection allow for Bass and Treble
adjustment as well. If you do not use these line input connections on Qsync, you can still use the Qsync's piano volume
adjustment for Pianomation.

1 MIDI DELAY
Used to adjust the synchronization between DVD
audio and Pianomation system. Range is 0 to -600ms.
At -500ms the display will show Pianomation which
is the correct setting for a normal setup.
The purpose of changing this delay value would be if
there is a large physical distance separating the
acoustic piano and the audio playback speakers
where perceived timing is skewed.
MIDI
CHANNEL
Changes the MIDI channel which Qsync sends the
piano performance data out. Channel 1 is the correct
setting for Pianomation systems. This parameter only
effects MIDI going out on the MIDI out jack. This does
not include data at AMI output.
3 IR RECEIVER
Allows front panel IR receiver to be activated or not.
Front panel IR receiver is not included in all models of
Qsync. Should nominally be set to "No IR Receiver".
This allows the QRS Pianomation system IR remote

3 MIDI OUT
4 AMI OUT
These jacks will send the data to the QRS controller to play the piano. Decide whether you will use the AMI
output or the MIDI output connection to your Pianomation system. Generally you will make this decision
based on the placement of your Qsync. If Qsync is placed close to the piano, you will want to use the MIDI
connection. If Qsync is located near your audio system you can use AMI with a wireless transmitter. If you
plan to run wire for this connection, you can use MIDI or AMI.
5 SPDIF THRU
You can then connect another digital audio device's input to the Qsync SPDIF thru. This feature is provided
to replace the coaxial output of the DVD player so the use of Qsync does not limit your normal system
configuration.
6 SPDIF IN
The SPDIF IN jack receives data from the coaxial audio output of the DVD player to synchronize the piano
with the audio and video. Connect the "Coaxial digital output of your DVD player to the SPDIF Input of
Qsync. Note that depending on the model of DVD player you use, the "Coaxial Digital Output" may be
labeled differently. "SPDIF " and "Digital" are common labels for these ports.

PIANOMATION ELECTRONICS LIMITED WARRANTY
QRS Music Technologies, Inc. (“QRS”) warrants to you for the Warranty Period that there are no defects in the
materials of this Product (as identified at the end of this warranty certificate). The “Warranty Period” expires (except

current version of a similar Product. If we offer to sell you a more current model of the Product, you will be
responsible to pay the difference between the Manufacture’s Suggested Retail Price (“MSRP”) of the more current
version of a similar Product and the price you paid for the Product you purchased. If you choose not to accept such
offer, we will have no further obligations pursuant to this warranty.
THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, MADE BY THE MANUFACTURER IN

LOSS OF THE PRODUCT, LOSS OF TIME, INCONVENIENCE, COMMERCIAL LOSS, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES, EVEN IF THE MANUFACTURER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

excluding or limiting liability for incidental or consequential damage. Consequently, the limitations and exclusions
in this warranty may not apply to you. In addition, some jurisdictions have consumer protection rules, regulations
and statutes that may apply to you.
