Product Description

The Alesis SR18 Drum Machine takes some cues from the legendary SR16 but adds many new features for today's musicians.
The Alesis SR18 is loaded with cutting-edge drum kits, electronic drums, hits, and up-to-date percussion sounds for any modern drummer. From hip-hop, to country and everything in-between, the SR18 has you covered. The integrated effects engine includes Reverb, EQ and Compression for customizing the sounds to your liking. Plus the SR18 can be controlled by footswitch pedals (sold separately) for start/stop and A-b fill/Count.

Since the SR18 can be powered by AC or batteries, it ensures that whenever you need to lay down a groove, you're fully-equipped.

The new era of drum machines is here, only from Alesis.

best drum machine without breaking the bank
What is your opinion of this product?
I tried the akai xr20, there were some videos on youtube saying it wasn't just for rap and techno. not only are those videos wrong, I don't think you could make good rap or techno/electronic music on it either. that said, as a guitarist and someone that makes some stuff that isn't all guitars, this is a great drum machine. the downside these days would be on a computer, you have access to tons of sounds, so this will feel limited, and the snare sounds are okay but not super. that said, I owned one before, sold it in a pinch, since then got an electronic drum set, which is fun, but it is tough to really teach yourself drums! plus, as a guitarist, I want to spend more time doing other stuff, so I bought this again. the sound quality is great. I pretty much get a set I like and don't see switching the sounds too much. I also look forward to getting some vintage drum sounds on my computer and running midi into this, but I use hardware(tascam 24, ehx 22500, casio wk 7600)

Very impressed so far, Great and Real sounding drums
What is your opinion of this product?
The demo was very impressive and working though the manual and online videos as a learning tool. I had a SR16 years ago but never used it .... I have big hopes for the SR18.

Just what I needed to complete my home studio
What is your opinion of this product?
I have been researching a lot of different drum machines available on the market, and for the price, this one has it all. The sound is as realistic as can be with a vast library of preset rhythms and the ability to create many more. You won't find more features in this small of a package.

Awsome! great sounds right out of the box started recording.
Your general opinion of this product.
I play drums, guitar, bass, and do background vocals. I added this to my my Tascam DP03, and started recording drums right away. Its like having a set of high priced electronic sounds, with real cymbals, and a background percussionist. I started recording as soon as I got it out of the box.
