Question about Alesis Sr 16 Stereo Drum Machine

2 Answers

Where can i buy the proper volume pot for my alesis sr 16?

I made a mess of the soldering when i tried to remove the old pot, which was about a year ago. Now I can't find the old pot and my uncle who is a trained radio engineer is going to fix it but he's reluctant to start until has the proper part. He would also prefer a schematic diagram if possible. Thanks ahead.

Alright, this is where I got the volume knob for one since mine broke.

Over the years I think the machine has evolved, so it might be a little different. However, if you know what you're doing and solder it properly, it will work like brand new. Good luck!

If you are willing to pay actual cost for shipping, I have an SR-16 with a broken screen that i could send you to salvage parts from. I bought it, I believe in December of 07 & other than the squished screen, I believe it to be in great shape. I just bought another one instead of fixing this one, so I certainly don't need it. Email me if you are interested. My guess is that USPS shipping would be like 2 or 3 bucks,as long as you are in the states.

Open the box and try to spray a cleaning/lubricating solution inside the volume pot mechanism like Deoxit D5, you can also spray a little of it on the output connectors where you plugin your cable that runs to the amp. If that doesn't solve your problem you have to replace the volume potentiometer. The machine I have had similar issues and I was lucky to have a pot close in size and resistance value as the original which in my case was broken, so I just replaced it. Good luck!

Sr-16 drum machine need part


The pot is PROBABLY an audio taper so check the suffix on the old one.

Many pots you can find at Digikey.com or Mouser.com.

You MAY have to cut the shaft length

For an exact replacement you will probably have to go to Alesis.

4.7 K is NOT a standard value for pots. 5K ohms is.

I can't find a rotary pot for alesis sr16


Try WD Greenhill.com. They were really helpful when I've needed hard to find parts for synthesizers. Let me know if this helps.

Alesis-sr 16 sound low


Buy the correct adapter that matches the voltage AND current requirements of the unit. MANY universal ones do not and the original MAY have built in filter that universal does not.

You MAY also need to do a factory reset on the unit.

I need program settings for my sr 16


For most Alesis drum machines the best way to get programming is to find an identical unit and clone/transfer from it. Try a music store that sells Alesis.

A second possibility is to go to website(s) and download a SYSEX file to transfer via MIDI to the unit.

The sr-16 powers up briefly then shuts off, I'm using a new AC adaptor ,music store repairman say it's unrepairable ,it's only 2 years old,what gives?


There has to be a component inside that is faulty. That causes the power supply to quit. If the repairman said it is not able to be repaired it means that the part can't be replaced due to unavailability or the cost. You could try taking it to another repairman at a music store that sells Alesis products if you aren't satisfied with his his answer. SR-16 s are pretty reliable and it takes a lot to damage them to the point where they can't be repaired. If you can't get it repaired locally and you think it can be repaired contact Alesis at http://www.alesis.com/content1024 to find out the closest place to ship it to and get it repaired.

Alesis SR-16 distorted sounds


The distorted and low volume output plus noise is usually caused by using the wrong power supply adapter. The Alesis SR-16 takes a 9V "A/C" supply not "DC". The A/C supply provides a negative voltage swing which wouldn't exist with a DC supply. So check and make sure you have 9V A/C output supply not DC.

Alesis Sr 16 stopped working altogether


I have never experienced this problem, but I know that you can reset the SR-16 to all default settings by doing something like holding down play when powering up. Try that & I'll look into the matter and get back to you with a definite answer. Peace and good luck until then.
