Can I split my keyboard with multiple voices?

Customize the voices by combining any two at once in Layer Mode for a full, rich tone. They can also be assigned to only the left or right hands in Split Mode. You can even add adjustable Reverb and Chorus to further tailor your sound.


Does this digital keyboard include education features?

The Alesis Recital has a "Lesson Mode" feature which divides the 88 keys into two zones with the same pitch and voice. This gives the student and teacher the ability to easily watch each other and play together without having to take turns.


Is the sustain pedal included?

The Recital does not come with a pedal, however any sustain pedal that uses a 1/4" Jack connection can be used.


What type of connections are included?

In addition to the 1/4" sustain pedal and headphone inputs, the Recital features stereo RCA outputs to connect to a recorder, mixer, amplifier or other sound system, as well as a USB-MIDI output for connecting to a computer and using educational software or virtual plugins. 


How is the keyboard powered?

The Recital can be powered either by the included power supply or 6 D Cell batteries. 


The volume on my Alesis Recital was fine initially but is now low or inconsistent. How can I fix this?

The good news is that you probably just need to perform a quick factory reset to be back up and running. 

While the keyboard has a single external volume know, there are a number of user adjustable settings that can also affect the volume.  You may have accidentally lowered one of the internal volume or sensitivity settings. 

To restore your Recital to the factory default settings, hold the Reverb and Chorus buttons while powering on the Recital.

The following parameters will be reset to their default values: Reverb, Chorus, Metronome Tempo, Metronome Time Signature, Metronome Volume, Upper Volume, Lower Volume, Split Volume, Split Point, MIDI Channel, Touch Sensitivity, and Auto Power Off.
