Check if there is a contrast setting... Unfortunately, sometimes the setting can;t be viewed when contrast is too low. Read your manual and find how to get into that mode if it exists and turn it up.

Alessi SR16 tempo slows down in stages throughout the song


I would start with double checking the "Clock in" and "Clock out settings. Also check that the Master sequencer is sending the correct Clock information. If you have not already done so, you can try by reinitializing the system (hold down erase-delete and record while powering up). If all that fails to remedy the problem you may have to check the SRam, some models have the high power ones fitted that drains the backup battery very quick. Change to the 58256-LP. Last but certainly not least, Avoid using any noise reduction systems (Dolby,or DBX) as these can distort the timing of the pulse train that contains the data. Have Fun.

I get a loud crack sound when I switch on the drum machine when I have it connected to the mixer


That would be normal - the order you power up equipment is very important. Always start with peripherals and work toward the power amp. Powering off is reverse - power amp first. You can also mute the mixer channel you're plugged into before powering up the drum machine but get into the habit of proper power sequence.

I have a DM5 18 bit drum module. It is a while since it was last used and I can't find the mains adapter. I bought a new one and have it set at 9V. The unit switches on but it is very dim and I...


You CANNOT use one of those universal adapters, period. The DM5 Alesis takes an AC output adapter. You need 9 VAC at 830ma or more. AC output adapters are hard to find and you are not the first to try a universal and find that they don't work! Here is one of MANY sources on Ebay:

Actually, ONLY TWO pins are used in the MIDI cable. The data is sent serially at a 31.25KBit rate.
You probably need to "map" the ones that aren't working into the appropriate codes to trigger the SR-18 sounds.

You need to COMPARE the codes sent from the DTX to those needed by the SR-18.

There also may be options in the DTX for type of drum kit such as "Latin" and selecting one of those may have the mapping already done.

In the literature of each device will be a list of the MIDI codes the DTX generates and those required by the SR-18.

essentially the percussion codes are NOT standardized completely between devices... but there is usually a way to "map" them to make it work.

you need to determine what midi note the DTXplorer is using for the snare, kick and 3rd tom, and set the SR-18 accordingly, or vica-versa. the midi notes for each instrument has to be the same.

if you cannot change the midi note in either unit to make them correspond, you can download a "midi mapper" program (i think e-drum might be one), there is freeware available if you search CNet. with a midi mapper program, you would have to get a midi/usb adapter for your computer and rouite the midi signal through a computer. midi mapping software allows you to change the midi note, when the hardware itself is incapable of doing so.
