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, â€œThe 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 todayâ€™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.â€�
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.
