SR-16 gives message "ERROR: 01" when powering up

SR-16 won't work, just says "ERROR: 01" once I've turned it on. Does anyone know what this error message means? I can't find it in the manual or anywhere online. Your help is appreciated.

You likely have lost the internal memory data. This can be due to a power surge or that the internal battery has been depleted. The battery may need to be replaced.

You should reset the unit and reload the data, The manual is available online. Search Google for it.

The manual STRESSES the importance of backing up the data.

If you don'thave the backup, you MAY need to find another SR-16 owner to clone the data from.

Hello I recompose my question. J would like to know the value of the ceramic condenser close to connector VAC of the circuit of Sr-16. On the circuit C5 opposite the condenser is written. it is round


You might try going to this webpage
https://www.alesis.com/sr16
and from the docs&downloads section download and search the Reference manual. It's also here http://www.burnkit2600.com/manuals/ALESIS_SR-16_OM.pdf (this looks more like a user guide though)
Failing that, choose 'support' from the th top of the page and either contact Alesis support or else ask your question in the 'community' (which you will have to join). Another community which deems to have an interest in the SR-16 is www.circuitbenders.co.uk but I think it unlikely that they could direct you to a circuit diagram, though it is slight possibility that someone might know the value of the capacitor C5

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

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.

I am not getting any sound with my used Alesis SR-16. I am getting display but just no sound. Help!


Many people have had this problem WHEN they substitued a replacement power adapter.

The CORRECT adapter MUST supply 9 volts AC, NOT DC at 830 ma or more.

The AC is converted inside the SR-16 to both + and - power to run the internal circuits. IF you have connected a 9 v DC adapter, it will NOT have damaged anything, just get the CORRECT adapter and all will be well.

Make sure you have the correct power adapter for the unit. This unit takes a 9 VAC, 830ma adapter. It will NOT work with a replacement, universal or DC type adapter.

I bought an Alesis SR-16 drum machine from an online seller advertised as "new". I plugged it in, and it appears that my "new" machine has had all the factory preset patterns erased! Is there a way to...


Hi.

The SR-16 has 50 preset patterns that are built in, I do not think they can be deleted, if there are no patterns the unit may be defective, even if patterns can be reinstalled using an rmidi file or re-flashing the unit.

To reset an Alesis drum machine you have to hold down both Play and Erase buttons while you power on the machine at the same time.

If that does not work, the presets are held into an rmidi file , the Rmidi file is not available for download. I think it can be purchased contacting Alesis or Rmidi.

I quote from Alesis Rmidi page:

"A rMidi Import/Export File named 'Sr16PresetKits.xml' containing the Sr16 Preset Kits has been installed within the folder named 'Sr16' within the directory in which you installed the rMidi FrameWork software. You can Import these Kits into the rMidi Drums Control if you wish. "


Check if you have the file in the folder.

If not the Sr16 will allows you to export your User Drum patterns, but I do not think you can export factory patterns.
