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.
