I’m confused

Alesis Strike: How to load and loop my own samples I've created on an external device

I've just bought the Strike Module, and I'm trying to load my own samples onto the module using the sdcard that's been supplied with it but unfortunately, only 2 of the 50 samples I have are being recognised by the module!! There is no explanation in the manual I got with it to explain to me where these samples need to be stored on the sdcard, no explanation as to how to load them into the pads, or loop them on a tom so that I can start and stop them when I want! Pls can some one guide me here thanks??? I'm so stuck!!

  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting. 

    Please keep in mind that your samples should be stored in the SAMPLES folder of your SD card. If only 2 of your 50 samples are being recognized by your module, it's likely the samples are not conforming correct file format standards. Please note the following file requirements below for loading samples on your Strike Pro module:

    • The samples files must be 16-bit, mono or stereo .WAV fioles.
    • You can use an SDHC card with a capacity of up to 32GB.
    • The card is set to a FAT32 file system
    • The following characters are not included in the file name: ”*/\:<>?|
    • The file name does not exceed 8 characters and has no spaces.

    To have your pad(s) loop the sample, press Triggers and change the input type to SWITCH. You will then need to open the Strike Editor (downloadable from the product page on www.alesis.com) to assign your samples. Once you've downloaded the editor, follow these steps below to assign your samples:
