Alesis knows drums. Our SR16 has dominated the drum machine market since 1990 and continues to be in demand today. The next-generation SR18 is loaded with cutting-edge drumsets, electronic drums, one-shot hits, and modern percussion sounds for any cutting-edge musicians performances and compositions.

From hip-hop to country and everything in between, SR18 nails it on the first take. SR18 has an effects engine with Alesis reverb, EQ, and compression so you can output recording or performance-ready sounds.

Alesis' exclusive Dynamic Articulation technology modifies sample sounds so they change as you play them. This results in sounds that respond accurately not only to dynamic changes, but also with the appropriate timbral and color changes you'd expect from their acoustic counterparts.

You can plug in an instrument, such as a guitar, and play along for setup simplicity. You can play in bass parts using the pads on SR18 or connect a MIDI keyboard for fast, musical low end.

SR18 can be powered by AC or batteries, so whenever or wherever you need to lay down a groove, youre ready to roll. Its time for you to step up to the next Alesis drum machine.

Outstanding selection of drum and percussion sounds. Easy to get started straight out of the box. I was looking for a standalone unit that can be used to back guitar when practicing, as well as to plug in to the home studio for recording. Perfect for both. On the downside, the pads are not very sensitive. You have to adjust the setting to soft, and even then you have to pound the pad to have any volume sensitivity. Better off running midi and using a touch sensitive keyboard. Same goes for the bass sounds. Use midi and it's much easier to lay down backing tracks, and gives you a wider range as well (the pads give you less than an octave). Once you get into it, this thing has all the sounds I'll need, and a pretty sweet fun factor.

I spent several days online researching drum machines, seeing that Alesis has been around since the 90's and decided on the SR-18. One of the coolest toys I have ever owned. Countless hours of fun. Great sounds with so many possibilities. I stocked up on batteries so I can take it anywhere. At under $300, you cannot go wrong. Outstanding! Thank you, James and L&M.

What a blast learning how to drum away and play simultaneously with this Drum Machine from Alesis. Can't go wrong with the brand name for its great quality and workmanship when it comes to drum machines.
