Used Alesis SR16 Drum Machine


This came in via trade-in recently.  Everything has been tested and works as it should.  It comes with the power supply but no box or instructions. The unit is clean but does have scratches, including some on the screen (see photos).  Please buy this ASAP so we stop playing with it!

Flexible Drum Machine for Practice, Production, and Performance

First introduced in 1990, the Alesis SR-16 drum machine remains relevant today thanks to its 24-bit sound engine and 233 natural-sounding drum sounds. Without programming a thing, you have access to 50 preset patterns played by pro drummers, and each preset includes, A and B variations plus two fill sections — perfect for sketching out song arrangement ideas. You can control playback via optional footswitches if you prefer, and the SR-16 even supports MIDI for even more comprehensive control. Whether you're looking for a practice companion, a drum machine for songwriting, or a rhythm solution for your solo performances, Sweetwater is sure you'll be impressed with the versatile Alesis SR-16 drum machine.

Play, program, or sequence via MIDIRecovery Effects

The Alesis SR-16 gives you a lot of options for creating realistic drum arrangements. With 12 velocity-sensitive pads, you can play rhythms directly in with your fingers. You can also perform more detailed programming and editing to fine-tune your patterns, or select from 50 preset patterns and tweak them to suit your music. And thanks to MIDI I/O, you can sequence or trigger your SR-16 from an external MIDI sequencer or DAW. Its flexible nature and great sounds are why the SR-16 remains relevant three decades after its initial release.
