Alesis SR-16 Portable Electronic Drum Machine

The SR-16 drum machine has been used by plethora of songwriters, live performers and remix engineers, making it one of the most popular drum machines on the market. The reason is simple: it features a great selection of 233 realistic, natural drum sounds, offered both in dry form and sampled with Alesis’ incomparable digital reverbs. Alesis’ 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 also features 50 preset patterns that were actually played by top studio drummers, not just programmed and quantized.

With the SR-16, 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, you can find it in the SR-16.
