    Product Description

    The Alesis SR16 drum machine is one of the biggest selling drum machines ever. Some of the sounds are instantly recognisable, thanks to their extensive use on hit songs from around the globe. The SR16 by Alesis has been a staple creative musical tool since its launch. Since the Winter NAMM show at the start of 2008, the SR16 has been joined by its bigger brother: the Alesis SR18.

    Here's what Alesis say about the SR16:

    The Drum Machine That Started A Music Revolution

    A true studio icon. As 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. 

    Fusing 233 professional sounds, on-board digital effects for added realism, stock & user customisable patterns, complete MIDI support, performance driven connectivity options, Alesis’ exclusive Dynamic Articulation and a compact, studio-friendly footprint, SR-16 can be heard on countless records, praised for its natural realistic sound and true versatility. Taking your production to the next level of professionalism just got a whole lot easier with SR-16 - change up your workflow and redefine your expectations of a professional drum machine, your production demands it.

    SR-16 features a pro selection of 233 realistic, natural drum sounds, offered both in dry form and sampled with our incomparable digital reverbs.

    Patterns for Days!

    The SR-16 features 50 preset patterns captured by top studio drummers, not just programmed and quantized. Plus, there’s enough built-in rhythmic variations (with A, B and two Fill sections) for composing complete arrangements.

    As I primarily want this as a composing tool at home and as the amps we have at home are too big and cumbersome to set up and put away, I went out and bought a tiny amp for £35 and a new guitar cable - without which this is just a box OK, I am no drummer, but this little gizmo looks like it could be my drummer/ percussionist until I get one. Really I just want it for composing with - and it looks promising for that: but from what I have read up on this - it does a lot more than that. OK I still need to learn how to use it - but there are lots of on-line tutorials for that. As such mu feedback in 6 months time would be a lot more valuable than my feedback now.
