SR-18 resets Rec Setup settings on every boot
« on: May 04, 2019, 09:34:41 AM »
Hi
I just got an Alesis SR-18 drummachine.

Every time I boot it up, the velocity is set back to MEDIUM and the click volume is back at 79, in the RECORD SETUP.

My machine is always connected to power, and the internal battery seems to fine (?)

Is there a fix, or what could the cause be?

Do I need to SAVE the settings somehow? I don't know how

Thanks

I haven't had an SR-18 for years , but you should be able to save the settings.I think  it was press SAVE when on that page(menu) and REC to confirm.I would check and see if patterns are saving after power cycling..If not  you probably need to replace the battery.
Here is the link for the SR-18..The downloads are still available.. manual , presets etc

Yeah I have tried saving it like that. No change.
Everything else is saved fine.
