Who says drum machines have no soul? Alesis has always been intrigued by the sound, the feel and the passion generated by a real drummer. But, what happens when you are a guitar player looking for a backing rhythm section in your home studio? What happens when you are writing your next hit song while on the road? Or what do you do if you are just looking for the perfect musical companion to learn your instrument. You turn to Alesis drum machines. For more than 20 years, Alesis has dominated the world of drum machines. We know what musicians want, and we always deliver exactly that. So pick the drum machine of your choice and find your groove.
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. 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.
Established in 1980, Alesis was founded on innovative semi-conductor chip technology and award winning industrial designs that allowed entry level musicians and recording artists to afford professional studio recording products that were never affordable before. With high "bang for the buck" value, Alesis introduced the world's first professional 16 bit effects processor under $1000, the Midiverb. Following on the heels of the Midiverb, Alesis progressed into studio quality drum machines (HR-16 and SR-16) as well as synthesizers, studio monitors and mixing consoles.
If there's one secret to our enduring brand and the passion it ignites in musicians, producers and engineers, it's that we deliver these experiences, rather than merely a collection of products and services. We"re dedicated to inspiring musical creativity and developing musical experiences for all of our stakeholders – customers, employees, partners, suppliers, and the musical community at large. That's what sets Alesis apart from the crowd and why our brand continues to be on the leading edge of professional audio and music technology.
While our products range from keyboards, synthesizers, hard disk recorders, iPod recording and playback devices, electronic drums, mixers, signal processors, effects units, amplifiers and speakers one thing remains consistent; our passion for inspiring musical creativity and innovation through new technology.
Alesis warrants its products to be free from defects for 1 year from the date of purchase.
