Alesis SR-18 Drum Machine with Effects Engine



A great, compact drum machine, perfect for music production. The Alesis SR-18 drum machine is the ideal choice for songwriters, live performers and remix engineers.

With advanced functionality and added bass sounds, the SR-18 is more versatile than it's popular predecessor the SR-16. The SR18 features over 500 realistic drum and percussion sounds that are available in both dry and sampled form with Alesis digital reverbs, the SR-18 also includes effects such as EQ and compression.

Alesis aims and achieves realistic performances by exploiting the dynamic articulation feature that the SR-18 offers, this technology modifies sample sounds so they change as you play them to give a more dynamic and realistic sound and feel.

Create realistic patterns on the fly

Packed with cutting-edge drumsets curated by professional drummers and sound designers. The drumsets are comprised of electronic drums, one-shot hits and modern-era percussion sounds. These genre-defying presets are perfect for a wide range of music styles.

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 customised patterns and songs. Plus, the SR-18 also provides complete MIDI implementation, a footswitch input, flexible programming and editing features and velocity-sensitive pad buttons.

Incorporate an instrument or a footswitch for added expression

Any momentary non-latching footswitch, best known as a keyboard sustain pedal can be used with the SR18. Plug in the footswitch first and then power on your drum machine so that it is properly calibrated. Users of the SR-18 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.

User-friendly design

The Alesis SR-18 is user friendly and easy to set up, the quick start guide included with the SR-18 (available as a PDF at the top of this page) provides all the information you need to get up and running within minutes. Whether you need a songwriting partner or an accompanist for live performance, the SR-18 is a world standard drum machine that will meet a variety of needs.
