  • Simplicity in a box

    As reviewed by Bob Sine on 7/17/2013

    I'm not a high tech guy and most of these machines are way too complex, complicated, or just user unfriendly. This one's a dream. Even though it's almost unlimited in what you can do with it, it's not complicated. I got it out of the box, plugged in my guitar and headphones, picked a drum set and pattern, dialed in a tempo and was playing literally five minutes after I got it. I just got it yesterday so I can't speak for its longevity but I hope it lasts forever. I absolutely love it.

  • Great Machine for the price

    As reviewed by General Farnirius Dog on 9/12/2008

    I have been using the SR-16 for live perfomances and recording for over 10 years. This is a timely update for a quite remarkable machine. The preset beats. kits, and samples are a MUST HAVE in creating your own style. Use what's already onboard or create something totally spellbinding in the user setting. The onboard effects are an extra bonus. Another upgrade is the instrument jack lets you play wherever...plug in your guitar or keyboards, put on your headphones and jam on the go, on battery power. Let's not forget the high contrast screen being backlit UPGRADE, so no more external lighting on stage to see what programs you are using. I have had people tell me what a great drummer I had, when it was all machine. Playing live with this tool is a breeze, once you get command of the foot switch fills. Did I say it had built in bass's a whole rhythm section by itself. Plug the MIDI out to your keyboard or other drum machines and you're a one man band. So if you are a novice or an professional,Live musician or home studio recorder, this is the machine to have in your arsenal of sound.

  • Great Buy

    As reviewed by Michael Staaf on 7/15/2008

    The Alesis SR-18 is a great buy. I purchased mine about two weeks ago and it has added a whole new dimension to my practice sessions. The buit in presets are anything but lame and the future functionality seems endless. The footswitch controls enable you to start/stop, change the tempo, add a fill or fill and change the pattern without having to pause your playing and fiddle with equipment. I am just getting into programming my own tracks and it seems slightly difficult but with the huge amount of user storage and the ability to back them up via midi, i'm sure it will be worth the struggle. If you looking to escape the mundane metronome and get synced up with some descent sounding drum kits this beast is for you.
