One of the most popular drum machines ever made, the Alesis SR-16 Drum Machine has been used by everyone from composers to live performers, for very good reason: It features a great selection of 233 realistic, natural drum sounds, offered both in dry form and sampled with quality digital reverbs. The Dynamic Articulation feature enables a drum sound to change its tonal content as it is played harder - just like an acoustic drum - for a realistic performance.
The 50 preset patterns that are in the SR-16 were actually played in by top studio drummers, not just programmed and quantized. There are built-in rhythmic variations for composing complete arrangements, and you can create and save your own customized patterns and songs.
The SR-16 is fully MIDI-controllable, has a footswitch input, flexible programming and editing features, as well as 12 velocity-sensitive pads.
The Alesis SR-16 drum machine is the best partner in the studio and on stage, and has been for over a decade.
