    Product Description

    The Alesis SR16 is one of the most popular drum machines ever made.
    The SR-16 has been used by everyone from songwriters to live performers to remix engineers as their drum machine of choice. The reason is simple: it features a great selection of 233 realistic, natural drum sounds, offered both in dry form and sampled with our incomparable digital reverbs. Our exclusive Dynamic Articulation feature enables a drum sound to change its tonal content as it's played harder for truly realistic performances.

    The SR-16 features 50 preset patterns that were actually played in by top studio drummers, not just programmed and quantized. You'll find enough built-in rhythmic variations (with A, B and two Fill sections) for composing complete arrangements, and you can create and save your own customized patterns and songs. Plus, the SR-16 also provides complete MIDI implementation, a footswitch input, flexible programming and editing features and velocity-sensitive pad buttons. Plus, it's so easy to use that you'll be up-and-running and composing new music in minutes. Whether you need a songwriting partner or an accompanyist for live performance, turn to the all-time world standard in drum machines: the SR-16.

    The Alesis SR 16 contains 100 preset 16 bit stereo sounds, many samples with stereo reverb and ambience already on them. It also will accept 100 user patterns. If you dig a little deeper, you find a winning combination of affordability, ease of use and great sound quality.

    The SR 16 gives you more of what you really want from a drum machine -- drum patterns that sound like they were played by a real drummer, using real drums. Also included are 50 preset and 50 user drum sets.

    Other features include: Velocity sensitive drum buttons with Dynamic Articulation so that the drums actually sound softer and louder as you hit the pads with varying levels of velocity, 16-voice polyphony, 4 audio outputs, MIDI In and Out/Thru, recognizes song position pointer, start/stop foot switch jack. 1-128 beats per pattern, 20-255 beats per minute and 100 song internal memory.

    Useful for practicing and Recording
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I am very happy with my purchase of the Alesis SR-16. There is a 'if you can't wait' section in the manual that guides the user through a quick tutorial to using the machine. After hooking up output cables and power, I had mine drumming away in about 20 minutes. The real challenge came when I started to delve into the midi applications. The goal was to record the midi notes from the preset pattern on the Alesis into my DAW (Sonar 5), edit it and then have the Alesis play the edited drum map. Took about 2 days to figure it all out as I am fairly new to midi. I made a preset Drum Map with the notes I wanted to use in Sonar. Then I programmed the Alesis to use the notes with the corresponding pads 1-12. The manual helps somewhat but there was a lot of head scratching and searching the web for forums concerning the process. Success, I can record a preset pattern from the Alesis and use it as is or edit it. I can also create a drum map in the DAW and play it on the Alesis.

    I was seriously surprised at : A) how easy this machine is to use and, B.) the quality of the drum sounds. You can tell that these are REAL drum sounds and not computerized beats. I am blown away by how inexpensive this machine is for the quality and ease that it offers. Alesis really is an awesome company. Would definitely recommend.

    Good product and worth the money
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I like it but would love it if they would and more percussion sounds to it and more natural drum sounds. Find a way to record with multiple timing.
