You should NOT be able to damage the unit by reversing in and out on MIDI connections.

MIDI connections are fairly safe against damage unless you drive a ground loop into the output ones.

ALWAYS operate any connected equipment from the SAME power source receptacle.

Fopr instance, do NOT have a musical device powered froma wall receptacle across the room and connected to a computer on the other side as an example.

MIDI would be slower and would depend on the software and drivers as far as it working. Just have the USB jack replaced. Jacks are not very expensive.

SOURCE: Hi team! I've just bought an Alesis Q49

That is what you can use transpose for... Now the truth is revealed: What transpose does is JUST move the notes (including the black keys) up and down the keyboard... that is ALL transpose does... so if you transpose +1 when you hit C the keyboard emits C# and hitting C# emits D and hitting D emits D#, etc... Now with trsnspose set at -2, hitting C results in B flat being emitted and for instance hit a G at transpose -2 results in F being emitted... Simple isn't it? For MIDI all they do is add the transpose to the note number. Don't forget that the black keys are counted as well as the white ones.

I need software for my phone to read midi devices like the alesis vortex keytar through USB. Any help?


Midi sends serial codes at a fixed clock rate. You can download a decoder program run from your computer that can look at the codes coming in from your USB post. I don't think your phone can run these but a portable laptop should be able to.

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

You need to load software on your computer that contains midi sounds - sampletank, Reaktor, etc. Make sure everything is set to Midi channel 1.

Hello guys, i have a problem with my midi keyboard. My PC doesn't recognize the USB connection and i can't find any solution.


Well first start by verifying USB port works by plugging in a hard drive or something thus proving you have a good port and USB Cable. At which point hook the keyboard up ( and make sure to properly install drivers provided on cd with purchase) being a pc this may take several attempts to install. What software are you trying to control? Reason? Logic? Fruityloops?

How do you get sound coming from the keyboard without an amplifier?


You don't... in two words... this unit is NOT intended to generate sound without and external generator and amplifier... or you can use the puny sound generation in a connected PC.

Have a casio px 320 and trying to use it in GarageBand on my Mac OS X. Connecting USB cable from USB output on Casio to USB input on Mac doesn't work. Any help?


use the audio output to send the keyboards internal patch sounds, or use a usb midi adapter to use the keyboard to trigger the garageband midi sounds, if the keyboard has a midi output, that is. the usb output requires software drivers to use, and IS NOT mac compatible. You may have to select a midi source in garage band preferences or settings if you are using midi.

My Alesis Sr-16 will suddenly start playing without being being commanded and it will also stop playing during a performance.Is this common and can it be fixed?


These will USUALLY stop playing if in a song mode that runs so many cycles and terminates.

The random starts CAN be caused if you have a MIDI input cable connected and ANY device sends a rhythm start command or starts sending rhythm clocks to the unit. You can usually disable receiving commands via MIDI and SHOULD do this unless you are actually using MIDI.

Other things would be electrical transients that could trigger the device. MAKE SURE ALL of your equipment that this is connected to is power from the SAME electrical outlet to avoid ground loops which can also damage your equipment as well as cause intermittent operation.
