    Sooo, that is not the solution. Generally, the hissing in amplifiers is caused by a bad grounding capacitor at the amplifier output. It is there to ground unwanted ac interference. Check it out.

    THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR REPLY,

  • RICH LAFORTE Jan 12, 2013

    THANKS BUT PROBLEM HAPPENS EVEN WHEN NO AMP IS HOOKED UP AND LISTENED THROUGH HEADPHONES ONLYA

    There must be a short in the output or the drum generator. Could be a hot transistor.

  • RICH LAFORTE Jan 13, 2013

    IF THERE IS A SHORT OR A HOT TRANSSISTOR WHAT COULD BE A SOLUTION.

  • RICH LAFORTE Jan 13, 2013

    IF THERE IS HOT TRANSISTOR SHORT I WOULD LIKE TO RECIEVE A NEW MODULE AND CHARGE ME IF NESSARY AND CREDIT ME WHEN YOU RECIVE THE DAMAGED ONE .I HAVE JUST ALSO BOUGHT A NEW ALESIS AMP AND DONOT WANT TO WAIT 4 WEEKS FOR REPAIR

  • RICH LAFORTE Jan 13, 2013

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.

No, it will work for some time, but will eventually overheat and cause damage. Spend the $10-20 and have piece of mind.

It appears that you have to select a "Kit" of drums when using the external triggers. It appears that the volume level for the kit and that for each voice MAY all have to be set, especially after new firmware download. Read manual about KIT volume level and selecting voice and volume level for those. Manual is NOT very clear about these things and you have to try them as this is where the probllem is.

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.
