That's a good question. As to moving the group, I can do that if made a moderator/owner.

QSI doesnt do installations..
Are you referring to a programming or you being an installer???
OR--- do you need an installer?

Rick,

I dont get it either.  I just went and checked my inboxes, and nothing.

So, how can I help?  
Hopefully this email makes its way to the forum.

Hi Ron,

  What version of QSI decoder?  CV 7 = ?    CV 8 = ?

  Can you send pics of the decoder?   Place them in the "Photos" section (above).   Perhaps someone can help once they see the actual decoder.


Good luck,
KJ

Re: Future of QSI

Gentlemen,

Hello, I hear you.  The future of QSI is good, our decoders are selling well, and we have several OEM runs coming. New things in the works as well. We cannot monitor this 24/7 but will respond. We also offer almost free repair service on any QSI item ever made.
Your best bet to getting my attention is sending me an email to : qsindustries224@....
I look forward to hearing from you all.

That could be as Yahoo Groups tend to drop messages here and there. I've experienced times where I haven't seen either the original or a response, but I've seen subsequent postings on the same topic.

One of the reasons why most of the groups I belong to have gone to Groups.io.

    I am not doubting this is a excellent decoder.  I have 2 Atlas HH660 which have QSI decoders in them.  However the only use I have for the Winton is a possible retro fit of some BLI ATSF E1s.  I simply don't wish to spend the money (programmer) or time (learning how to program the Titan).  After all I've already spent 80-100 getting the BLI decoder (can't buy the engine without, smart marketing by BLI, they learned from 2-10-2s stealth).

Re: Winton sound

Rick Knight
 

I am glad that Kelly answered this question for Jon. I have used several Titans and have used the Winton sound file and have the QSI programmer and the software but not updated for my windows 10 computer. I am still trying to decide if it is worth the effort to get the windows ten working with the QSI programmer without any answer to my question about the future of QSI. Also no back channel communication and no idea on price. Rick.

Re: Winton sound

Hi Jon,

  You wrote, "I would want to buy it on the decoder. "

  As Ed mentioned, the sound file is available for the Titan decoder.   That's part of what makes the Titan such a great decoder - you can update the sound files as they become available (using the optional QSI Programmer).   However, you can purchase the Titan decoder with the Winton sound file already loaded, directly from Q.S. Industries.   http://www.qsindustries.com/

  You wrote: " It's not available on JMRI for some reason. "  You can still use JMRI Decoder Pro or QSI's own,  free download, CV Manager (works with NCE systems and with QSI Programmer).

  Currently, there are only two QSI Titan version 9 decoders listed in JMRI Decoder Pro (a steam and a diesel).  To use a QSI Titan with version 9 firmware (the Emulator) in JMRI Decoder Pro you simply select the diesel (if memory serves, it's the EMD 567).  Don't worry, it's just a label - it will not change the Winton sound file to something else.   Once selected you can set the CVs to your hearts content.

  You wrote, "I would then lock it  after selecting what I want in terms of CVs. "

  Another great thing about the Emulator (QSI Titan with version 9 firmware) is the fact that, just like the full scale locomotive, the sounds are dynamic.   Changing the momentum values and load (length of train, grade, etc.) will change the sounds and operating characteristics of the locomotive.   The exhaust will become laboured and 'bark' sharper, etc..   To do that you may not want to 'lock' the decoder because 'momentum' changes with load.

  Oh, and the fully variable train brake (when the momentum CVs are properly set) emulates the full scale very well.

  Really, there is so much, so many features to the Emulator, I just cannot list them here.   I suggest downloading the full manual (it's huge because there are so many features).


Best regards,
KJ

    I don't have any "black boxes" from any manufacture.  I would want to buy it on the decoder.  I would then lock it  after selecting what I want in terms of CVs.  It's not available on JMRI for some reason.

    How do you like the sound?

Atlas qsi light

ron wright
 

have several atlas gold locos with the qsi sound installed. I want to add ditchlights, but have been unable to figure out light output programming. Is jmri the way to go that would be easier? Having trouble finding the steps to program using my dcc system. Also is it just possible that the decoder doesn't have these outputs? I like the sound and features so I don't want to replace the decoder. They are atlas gp38's.

Thanks,

Re: Future of QSI

Rick Knight
 

Kelly, Thanks. I know you don't have a crystal ball but what do you see for the future for QSI. I am not being nosy either. As an installer I need to know that I am going to have support for the decoders I install. I agree the Titans are a good and sophisticated decoder and have installed several. Steam, Diesel, Budd car, etc. Sometimes I think too sophisticated. Right now i have two brass Budds I am trying to decide whether to use Titans or something else. I have already installed one Titan in a Budd car for the same customer which does impact the decision. Also what will the cost to me be as an installer and that is why I was trying to contact you back channel. Thanks, Rick.
