Hi there, just bought an andromeda, and it as the floor model, i wanna do a factory reset to make sure its exactly as it should be.

I looked in the manual but couldnt find the term "factory re set) Has anyone done this?

Hold down soft button 3 while powering on. That performs a hard reset.

3 and 4 are different. I believe that 3 is a soft reset, and 4 is a hard reset (will remove Programs, tuning tables, MIDI settings, etc. so use with caution).

One or the other-- anyone? I've finally forgotten. The screen prompts should assist.

Note. After doing a hard reset, I believe the unit does an auto-tune. This auto-tune is critical. Allow it to finish. Tune again after a few minutes and your tuning tables should be set again.

It's 3, according to the user manual.

(copied from the manual ! recommended, read it twice, plus the tips + tricks, from beginning till end !)

POWER UP MODES
We have already mentioned a few power up modes that are entered by holding down a soft button while powering up the A6. Here is a summary of all of them:
POWER UP WHILE HOLDING FUNCTION
Soft Button 1 Forces A6 to load default Program and Mix. This is useful if the A6 has received corrupted data, causing it to hang.
Soft Button 2 Enters front panel debug mode.
Soft Button 3 Initializes all user RAM. This is also known as a Hard Reset. Warning, this will erase all User Programs and Mixes, replacing them with the factory default User Programs and Mixes!
Soft Button 4 Initializes all Global parameters, including tuning tables.
Soft Button 5 Re-calibrates Mod Wheel and Ribbon Controller.
Soft Button 6 Sends software OS out as MIDI Syx Ex dump.
Soft Button 7 Enables the A6 to receive software Syx Ex dump (OS or bootloader).
Soft Button 8 Replaces the factory default User Programs and Mixes with the User Bank Programs and Mixes. The next time a RAM initialization is done (Soft Button 3), these banks will be used to initialize the User Banks.

Here is the Alesis page for the last official OS 1.4.12, the factory soundset, and some free soundsets from those who helped to test and voice the unit.
