The SR16 features 233 realistic and natural drum sounds that are available in both dry and sampled form with Alesis digital reverbs.

The SR-16 features 50 preset patterns that were created by some of the world’s leading 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. You can even create your own, to save and recall at any time.

Plus, the SR-16 also provides complete MIDI implementation, a footswitch input, flexible programming and editing features and velocity-sensitive pad buttons. Any momentary non-latching footswitch, best known as keyboard sustain pedals can be used with the SR16. Plug in the footswitch first and then power on your drum machine so that it is properly calibrated.
