Question about Alesis Sr 16 Stereo Drum Machine

1 Answer

Alesis sr 16 just staring at me

When I turn it on, the message across the screen is A E, and the tempo registers 89 bpm, and the song # is 16 user. It doesn't do anything beyond this, and I have tried initializing it and the adapter works. What can this be?

SOURCE: 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 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

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.

Question on the start /stop feature and saving tempo information


As I read the manual, the tempo is saved with the SONG.

Starting and stopping rhythm SHOULD always start at the begining of the song. This is on page 20 of your manual. The manual is available online if you don't have one.
