Go to www.Alesis.com, undersupport clickdocuments and downloads.Click drum machines then All. The various drum machine models are then displayed to the right. Under HR-16 for instance you can download the manual in pdf and the presets in sysx. The manual should walk you through the procedure. You will have to replace the internal memory battery. They are easy to replace and cost about five bucks. Good Luck!

How do I fix channels with no sound


Mute Switch/Mute-Clip LED :
  • This switch mutes all Aux, Group and L/R sends from the corresponding channel.
  • This switch is equipped with a red LED that will illuminate when the channel is muted.
  • When the MUTE button is out,the LED functions as a Clip indicator that will illuminate at 2 dB below clipping.
  • Muting the channel does not prevent the PFL signal from being sent to the PFL/AFL mix when the PFL Switch (12) is in.
  • This switch mutes its respective Group send from the Group channel.

You can also try, Restoring Factory Settings, in the Utility Menu Options.
Go to page 16 in ths link :
Peavey FX Mixer Series Operating Manual

CAUTION:
Restoring the factory settings option resets your mixer's presets, reformatting factory presets and erasing all other user presets. (This option is handy when your venue has permanently changed and all-new presets are required.)
Once confirmed, the presets are not retrievable and will be permanently lost.
Should you select this option in error, a warning screen allows you to cancel the procedure.

I have a 1990 Alesis SR16 drum machine which has not been switched on for over 10 years. I now wish to use it again but all data including factory presets have been lost. How do I re instate them


How do I reinitialize SR-16?

Power on while holding: "ERASE" and "PLAY".
Evidence: All User songs and patterns will be empty.
Note: Clears memory
Clears the SR-16's User Songs and Patterns, but leaves the Preset Songs and Patterns intact.

Cannot format or reload factory presets after it stopped working


The card that you used to transfer the files HAS to be (1) FORMATTED by the ESX-1 unit FIRST, (2) then put the card into your computer's card reader and download the files. (3) Put the card BACK into the ESX-1 and try reloading the factory presets. Good luck!

I've initialized it and now have lost the preset patterns, Is there any way I can get them back please? - CHRIS


I assume you held the erase and play and re-initialized the firmware. I assume you failed to generate either a backup MIDI file or an audio tape backup. Now you will need to find another person with an SR16 and copy via MIDI or Audio (really digital) tape to reload your unit. Your user manual will tell you the procedure to do this once you find a host SR16.

When i press the harmony effect i have to hold it


Well i hope the latching mechanism isn't busted!

Check/review your parameter settings for your programs. Especially in the Expression Pedal Control areas.

From their site:

--Harmony Footswitch
This footswitch turns the harmonies on or off. While multiple harmonies can be selected within a preset, the HARMONY footswitch activates or deactivates any selected harmonies simultaneously.
When the LED above the HARMONY footswitch is illuminated, the harmonies are on. When the LED is turned off, the harmonies are turned off.

--Note: The settings for FX Footswitch Control, Harmony Footswitch Control and Guitar Sensitivity apply to ALL presets. The setting for the Expression Pedal Control applies to the current preset only. If you modify the Expression Pedal setting and wish to store it you must Store the preset (see page 11 ). When you load another preset, its setting for Expression Pedal Control will take effect.

--To perform a Factory Reset procedure
If you are editing a preset, press the Up or Down footswitch to exit edit mode.
Press and hold the Major/Minor button and then press and release the Store button. The display will read FAC RESET- WILL ERASE ALL YOUR PRESETS... , then STORE=RST.
Press the Store button again to continue with the factory reset. If you don’t want to do the factory reset, just wait 5 seconds, or press almost any other button, to cancel.

Cyber Twin selector knob.


The selector knob may be a potentiometer or a rotary impulse giver device. In any case, it looks like the internal contacts are either dirty or oxydized so the value is changing in an erratic way which causes the unit to skip several presets at a time.

It would require a skilled technician to disassemble and clean the controller (if it can be disassembled in the first place), otherwise you will probably need to replace the preset selector knob entirely.
