Question about Alesis DM6 Electronic Drum Set

1 Answer

Alesis DM6 kick/bass has a really low volume-any way to make it louder?

Compared to the other pads, the volume on the kick pad is very low. i adjusted the module volume but compared to the other pads, the kick is really low and so doesn't provide the right bass sound

Some of the Alesis products have a setup and data memory backed up by a battery. It is POSSIBLE that your battery expired and took the sound memory with it.

Investigate if you have a battery in yours (buried in the guts) and check the voltage. It should be above about 3 volts.

If it is below that, replace the battery and find another unit to clone the data from.

SOURCE: alesis drum control pad has very low output

Most of these use a Piezo disc pickup and often the disc can become dislodged.

Not sure what drum pad model you have.

SOURCE: My Dm5 drumkit module keeps intermittently

Intermittents are hard to find the cause of... but let's give it a shot...

Things to try or verify:

1, Verify power connector is fully seated and supply is correct one and is producing the desired voltage..

2. Verify that the amp this connects to is powered by the same wall receptacle. (this is a ground loop noise issue) Also don't let mic's or other electrical equipment touch the drum pad mounting system.

3. Verify you are not inadvertently generating static discharges. If you find yourself drawing sparks when you touch things this is an indication of static. if this is a problem, raise humidity to 40%.

4. If unit is subject to heat, try cooling with a fan to see if it helps the situation.

5. Verify the unit is NOT being vibrated.

6. IF THE UNIT is quite old, verify an internal backup battery is not depleted... they usually are about 3 volts when OK.

SOURCE: I had just recieved a brand new DM6. Upon setup

First thing to look at is the plug you are using a TRS, that is has three connections for the SNARE drum. If you partially put a TRS cable into the jack, the Tip will touch the Ring contact instead of the Tip contact. Now notice that the SNARE has a TRS plug while the kick has only a TS.plug. Could these be mis-labeled? The SNARE is the TRS and the kick is only a two conductor. If these are correct in your unit, then the jack in the kick drum itself must be broken and further that type of failure is really hard to visualize as it would require the tip contact of the jack to be drastically bent so that the plug has to be partially out to work.
So... first verify that the KICK cable has a two wire plug that is DIFFERENT from the three wire plug used on the SNARE (the snare has two pickups, one each for the head and rimshot) Should they possibly either mis-marked the cable plugs OR put the wrong plug on the Kick cable this would be the problem.

How fix the firmware problems with alesis dm6?


Have you updated the firmware recently? If not, do so.
If you are having volume issues, you can adjust them with the following:
Adjusting the volume of individual pads:
-Press Voice.
-Then press Volume.
-Strike the pad you would like to adjust.
-Then use the + and - buttons to adjust the volume of the individual pad.
-To adjust another pad, strike that pad, and repeat step 4 above.

Verify the module by connecting a different pad to the bass drum and see if you can trigger the bass drum sound. This would test the module. Now connect the bass to a different input and see if it will trigger that input. SOME of the triggers have a very small potentiometer in them. I have seen vibration break this pot loose rendering the unit inoperative. Also some people have pushed a screwdriver into the pot too hard and broken it off. Once you know it is the bass trigger, open the unit and look for damage. The sensor is usually a piezo disk. These can break away from their attachment. Reattach with contact cement after cleaning the residue.

Have the alesis dm6 there is no out put sound. monitor appears to be working. hooked to small amp or headphones. just fuzz. please help. little guys christmas present!!!


Two things:

Check that cables are seated, especially the one at the main module.

Second, look for a setting for "Local Control" in your user's manual; That setting should be "On" to accept the triggers from the pads.
