Firmware Update Released for Strike Module!

Hi, everyone!

Alesis has just posted a firmware update for the Strike module! This new v1.1 update includes:

• Improved overall drum and cymbal trigger performance.

• Improved hi-hat pedal performance, including greater dynamic range for “chick”
sound and a more forgiving Triggers > Pedal adjustment process.

• Minor bug fixes.

Go to the Downloads section on the Strike or Strike Pro product page to grab the update, or use the link below:

Strike Firmware Update v1.1(Mac/Windows)

You'll find both Mac and Windows versions inside, as well as detailed update instructions to follow.

While this firmware will truly optimize the Strike Pro trigger response, you can always further tweak to personalize it to your playing style. Make sure to check out our guide below for descriptions of trigger settings and suggestions:

  • A quick note to Mac OS X users; if you receive an error message from the Updater application that it cannot locate your Strike module, it’s due to a unique way OS X handles tracking old MIDI devices. There’s an easy fix!

    1. Close your Strike Updater app.
    2. Open Audio MIDI Setup. This is located in the Applications > Utilities folder.
    3. From the menu bar, select Window > Show MIDI Window



    4. From the dropdown at the top left of the MIDI window, select New Configuration.



    5. Name the new configuration.
    6. This will cause OS X to rescan for any current MIDI devices, but also remove any old ones that are no longer connected. Sometimes old “remembered” devices can interrupt MIDI communications on Macs.
    7. Now, double click on the IAC Driver icon. This will bring up a new window.
    8. At the bottom left you’ll see a Ports section. Select any ports listed in there and click the minus button below to remove them all. You should be left with No Available Ports.



    9. Now be sure to close the Strike Updater app, and check that your Strike module is still connected and in update mode.
    10. Re-open the Updater app and try again.
    11. Enjoy!
