Alesis has introduced the SR-18, which they describe as a professional drum machine with integrated FX engine, battery operation and cutting-edge percussion sounds.
An Alesis spokesman had this to say, “The legendary Alesis SR-16 ignited the drum-machine market in 1990 and has remained a classic ever since; the SR-18 is designed to meet the demands of today’s musicians. It follows in the tradition of its ancestor and is loaded with cutting-edge drum kits, electronic drums, hits and up-to-date percussion sounds for any modern drummer. From hip-hop to country and everything in-between, the SR-18 has it covered.�
The SR-18 can be powered by AC or batteries and features an integrated effects engine which includes Reverb, EQ and Compression for, say Alesis, customizing sounds to perfection.
SR-18 features include:
  • Large, 32MB sound set with percussion bank and bass synth
  • Built-in Effects - Reverb, EQ and Compression
  • Battery Power for maximum portability
  • Pattern Play Mode enables different patterns to be triggered from the pads directly
  • Mute/Solo Function for parts - Drums, Bass and Percussion and per pad within a bank
