Any old foot switch will do as long as it has the same number of switches on it as the original. A one-switch assembly will use a quarter inch Ring/Sleeve plug, a two switch assembly will use a Tip/Ring/Sleeve (stereo) plug.

Most music stores sell foot switches.

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.

How to program drum beats from one alesis sr16to another alesis sr16 drum machines


5.4J Copy a Song to Another SR-16 Via MIDI
The SR-16 can send Song system exclusive information to another SR-16 via MIDI. If you have only one SR-16, you can skip this section.
1. The source SR-16 should be in Song mode and stopped. Connect the source SR-16 MIDI out to the destination SR-16 MIDI in.
2. Select the Song to be copied.
3. Press and hold the COPY button, and keep holding it down until step (5). The display says COPY TO SONG.
4. Do not enter any destination Song number-just press PLAY to send the data out over MIDI. It will end up in whatever Song number had been selected at the receiver. If the Song was not empty, the new Song steps will be appended to the existing Song steps.
5. Release the COPY and PLAY buttons.
Caution: This does not transfer Pattern information, only the song steps. To transfer Patterns to another SR-16, see section 3.3D and 3.3E.


Hopefully this helps, it comes out of the SR16 Manual, page 40 I think
Cheers Pete

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.

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.
