The Alesis SR-16 is a professional, stereo drum machine which features dynamic articulation and is well suited for songwriters, live performers, and remix engineers. The original SR-16 was 16-bit but was updated to 24-bit for higher quality sound with a lower noise floor. The SR-16 offers a wide selection of 233 realistic, natural sounds both dry and with professional quality reverbs. The dynamic articulation feature enables a drum sound to change its tonal content as it’s played harder for truly realistic performances.
The 50 on-board patterns were played by top studio drummers with built-in rhythmic variations (A, B, and two Fill sections.) Additionally, you can create and save your own customized patterns and songs. The Alesis SR-16 also provides complete MIDI implementation, 2 footswitch inputs, flexible programming and editing features, velocity-sensitive pads, and includes a power supply.
