ALESIS Products Reset Procedures

alesis_logoSo, recently I was setting up a new rack of effects for processing vocals, and when I turned on my ALESIS Quadraverb … it was not working. Just a blank screen though the backlight was lit. What’s the point you ask?? I’m glad you asked that! In the process of troubleshooting my unit, I found a long list of reset procedures for lots of ALESIS products. So, I thought I’d post that list here for anyone that may need it. Plus, it’ll help make sure that this information doesn’t disappear by having it on another site. Here is the list:

  • ADAT – Power up while holding PLAY and RECORD. “Drum on” Hrs will not be reset
  • ADAT-XT – Power up while holding PLAY and RECORD. “Drum on” Hrs will not be reset
  • BRC – Power up while holding PLAY and RECORD
  • AI-2 – Power up while holding STORE. (Adat tape header information will also be cleared)
  • D4 – Power up while holding OUTPUT and VOICE.
  • DM5 – Power up while holding OUTPUT and VOICE
  • HR-16 – Power up while holding ERASE, DELETE, and RECORD
  • HR-16B – Power up while holding ERASE, DELETE, and RECORD
  • Midiverb III – Power up while holding INT PROG and STORE
  • M3 – Power up while holding BYPASS and PROG
  • Midiverb 4 – Power up while holding PROG and D
  • MMT-8 – Power up while holding ERASE, PAGE A and PAGE
  • QS6 Keyboard – Power up While holding number ZERO and THREE buttons
  • Quadrasynth – Power up while holding DATA buttons 1 and 4. Note that this only clears the edit Keyboards buffer. Currently there is no hard reset/re-initialization routine available.
  • Quadraverb – Power up while holding BYPASS and PROGRAM
  • Quadraverb GT – Power up while holding BYPASS and PROGRAM
  • Quadraverb 2 – Power up while holding PROGRAM and COMPARE. This is a soft reset (sets global to default, clears edit buffer but leaves user memory intact). Power up while holding PROGRAM, COMPARE and >BLOCK. This is a hard reset(set all functions to default and clears user memory).
  • S4/S8 Sound – Power up while holding DATA buttons 1 and 4. Note that this only clears the edit Modules buffer. Currently there is no hard reset/re-initialization routine available.
  • SR-16 – Power up while holding ERASE and PLAY
  • X2 Console – Power up while holding ALT, ERASE FWD, and DEC. This is a soft reset Factory mute parameters will be loaded into memory. Currently there is no user hard reset or Re-initialize routine available

This list was originally found on Sweetwater’s website, their page is here. If you have never bought anything from Sweetwater and you want or need music gear, those guys are amazing to work with. Their support after the sale is second to none in my humble opinion. I hope this list helps anyone that may need it!!!
