Question about Alesis 16 Bit Stereo Drum Machine System

1 Answer

Time Signature Are there any preset 3/4 time or 6/8 time rhythms? I read the manual and it says its easy to do but I can't see where it explains it. I think I need a step by step procedure if there are no presets. Same thing here. I need 3-based time signatures; 3/4, 6/8, 9/8, 12/8, etc. What are the click set up and recording grouping paramater settings for record in meter signatures divisible by 3? I haven't found anything in the book about 3 anything.

My stereo keeps turning off when I listen to a station 101.5 in New Jersey


The only thing that can be is that you have set a timer "sleep" function for that station. I have looked at the manual and it states you can programme a sleep setting for a radio station.
The instructions are on page 12. But I have extracted them below:

1 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to turn the power on.

2 Press and hold the CLOCK/TIMER button.

3 Within 10 seconds, press the or button

to select "ONCE" or "DAILY", and press the MEMORY

button. Set the clock to the correct time if "ONCE" or

"DAILY" does not appear.

4 Within 10 seconds, press the or button to select

"ONCE SET" or "DAILY SET", and press the MEMORY

button.

5 To adjust the hour, press the or button and then

press the MEMORY button.

6 To adjust the minutes, press the or button and

then press the MEMORY button.

7 Set the time to fi nish as in steps 5 and 6 above.

8 To select the timer playback source (CD, TUNER, USB,

iPhone/iPod, TAPE or AUDIO IN), press the or

button. Press the MEMORY button.

When you select the tuner, select a station by pressing

the or button, and then press the MEMORY

button. If a station has not been programmed, "NO

PRESET" will be displayed and timer setting will be

canceled.

9 Adjust the volume using the VOLUME control, and then

press the MEMORY button. Do not turn the volume up

too high.

10 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to enter the power

stand-by mode. The "TIMER" indicator lights up and

the unit is ready for timer playback.


11 When the preset time is reached, playback will start.





The volume will increase gradually until it reaches the

preset volume. The "?" or "DAILY" indicator will blink

during timer playback.

12 When the timer end time is reached, the system will

enter the power stand-by mode automatically.

Once timer:

The timer will be canceled.

Daily timer:

The timer operates at the same time every day. It

will continue until the daily timer setting is canceled.
Cancel the daily timer when it is not in use.

Cant hear audio on tascam 2488i brand new to using it but i do understand how to record a track on my display screen i can see the audio i recorded but no sound what so ever i have my headphones plugged up...


hi

Tascam Digital recording is an effective solution for broadcast-quality home recordings. The Tascam 2488 is a user-friendly tool and useful for home recording situations, especially when writing songs or cutting demos. It even has bus compression and processing for your final mix to give it that "mastered" feel. There are other recorders as well.

Instructions
  1. Learn your gear. The Tascam 2488 DAW offers 24 discrete channels that can be recorded at up to 24-bit resolution. 16 tracks can be recorded simultaneously, via eight XLR balanced inputs and eith 1/4-inch unbalanced inputs. There are several high-quality built-in effects, such as reverb, delay, modulation, compression and a great tool for guitarists: amp and effect modeling. So you can simply plug directly into the console and get live amp tones.
  2. Record or program the rhythm tracks. Most Tascam products offer a large library of built-in drum loops to construct rhythm tracks, so you don't even need live drums just to get a song down. You can designate the tempo of your song from the transport located on the right side of the console; this is where you would use a variety of buttons to make edits, undo or redo and automate punch-ins
  3. Record your base rhythm instrument. Let's say a rhythm guitar. There is a dedicated guitar input located on the front of the console, and once you're plugged in you can use the aforementioned amp modeling features to dial up a sound.
  4. Record the remaining track or tracks. This could include bass, vocals, keyboards, horns or any other instrument. The process is always the same. Arm the track you wish to record on, hold in record and hit play, and the machine begins to record whatever you are playing. When you're done, hit stop. If you want to undo what you recorded, simply hit the undo button.
  5. Repeat these steps on any other instrument you want to record. Plug a microphone into one of the first eight XLR inputs, the first 4 of which have phantom power for studio condenser microphones, arm a track and record.

  • If you need to punch-in a section, you can automate it by dialing up the time in the song you wish to replace using the auto punch function. When you enable this and choose the time in the song you wish to record over, once you hit record and play it'll start the track a few seconds before where it begins the punch-in and it will only go into record when it reaches the designated time stamp.
Do not rush. Proper recording takes time and patience.

hopefully this can help
regards

Auto eq wont turn off


You have to press the STORE button. Also, this will only save to the preset you're on and has no effect on other presets. So if you're on preset 1 and you disable EQ then press STORE you've only turned it off for that preset. #2, 3, etc. will still be enabled.

After you press STORE will show you something like this:

STORE: ROCK VENUE
Replacing
U1 DJ Setup
PRESS STORE TO ADVANCE

Rotate the DATA whell to select the program to be replaced and press STORE. The existing program (the one that had EQ turned on) will be replaced with the new program (the EQ turned off). If, for example, you do this to preset 1, now every time you dial to 1 you'll have the same, no EQ setting.

I have a new ESTR 200 that has been in a closet for a couple of years. Very little seems to function well. The presets will not hold if I turn the system off or if I turn to another function. Record...


I assume we're talking about the Element ESTR200...

A turntable will not work with this receiver unless the TT is already preamplified. No Phono Preamp in this unit.

Presets:

From the manual...

Store a station
1. Press the FM/AM button on the front panel (or
the AM/FM button on the remote).
2. Select the station you want to store in memory
by the methods described above.
3. Press the MEMORY button on the remote
While "MEMORY" is glittering, press number
buttons on the remote for the station.

If the Memory indicator on the display turns off before you preset the station selection, Press Memory again.

Manual preset
1. Select the band wave by pressing FM/AM
repeat.
2. Turn to a radio station(see "Manual tuning" on
page 8 in details).
3. Select a group (A- D) of preset stations. This
group will be displayed on the front panel.
For example: "A".
4. Press MEMORY on the remote control.
"MEMORY"will appear on the display.
5. While the word "MEM" appears, input your desired preset number (1-8 ) by using the numeric keys on the remote control to store the radio station. For example this number is "1", the station is stored as "A1".
NOTE:
A new setting can cover the former one.
This memory is kept before next reset.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press FM/AM button on the front panel or the
remote control to select tuner mode.

2. Press A/B/C/D button on the front panel or the
remote control to select the group of preset stations that you require.
3. Press the numeric keys on the remote control to select the number of preset station that you require. Station selected is displayed on the front panel.
4. By the same way, you can select other stored
stations.
---

The remote control does not operate the unit.
-Another function is selected on the remote.
Press the correct function button.
-No batteries installed. Install the batteries before
using the remote.
Be sure "+" and "-" marks of each battery match the symbol on the inside of the remote battery compartment.
-The batteries are exhausted. Replace all batteries.
-The remote is not pointed at the remote control sensor on the main unit or there is an obstacle between the remote and the main unit.
-The remote control is too far away from the main
unit, move closer.

Cannot programme umusic to play specific CD's on personal presets


the system cannot allocate the cds as per preset... but yes you can teach the system what you like or you dont like by giving the song you dont like a -ve rating with the negative button on your remote below the umusic button.... same can be followed by your wife when she uses her preset and the umusic intelligent playback system would recognise you both as different individuals and play your music according to your tastes and preferences and learn to adap to your moods in just a matter of time...

thereis nothing wrong with the system. its just a misinterpretationor a miscommunication..

my system has learned my tatste in just 20 days and i have saved over 450 cds by now............

so try downloading the umusic guide from bose's website and learn how to use umusic....

No power-up on Sr-16!!!


Hi,in the manual it explains somewhere how to reset the unit. I think you hold down the play button and the erase button at the same time while powering up the unit.
