Question about Alesis 16 Bit Stereo Drum Machine System
Is special software required in order to back up Alesis SR16 Drum machine programs on to a pc
Some harddisk recording/PC based recording programs recognize "Midi Bulk Dump"
I use Alesis Data Disc for all midi backup from synths and drum machine. This is a one unit rack module you can get for som few dollars.. ;)
Alternative check out download.com with "midi" as search word.

All you need is a cable with a mono miniature jack plug at each end. One end goes into the SR16 and the other into a cassette, minidisc recorder, whatever you will record the back/up stream to. A bit like old PCs ... Ataris. Commodores etc., you effectively make an audio recording of stream of data ... it sounds a bit like hearing a fax transmission or modem connection over a phone line.
So first, you make a recording of your existing SR16's patterns, drum kits etc.. Before you change the patterns, check your back up is OK by playing it back into the SR16. In my experience, the SR16 likes a pretty "hot" signal so don't worry if it's a bit "loud". Make a note of the settings that work.
Once you know the back up of your SR16's data is OK and you can return your SR16 to its original state, start messing around or buy patterns online from sites like this www.1borneveryminute.com/AlesisSR16CustomPatternSet1.htm where you'll also find samples of what's possible with the SR16, some free patterns and technical details. There's also loads of other references to the SR16 on the web. I use the above option simply because pretty much everyone has something that records audio which, along with the cable, is all you need.
