Alesis SR-16 vs SR-18
Which one should I get?
I thought I read somewhere people like the SR-16 better but I can't find it.
Which is easier to program and overall better?
I do not own a laptop and I want it to be portable so I am looking for a hardware solution just for jamming.

I've had both. I have the SR18 now because the SR16 died.. But I did like the 16 better. the 18 added bass tracks (which I find annoying and have to turn them off)... the 16 had a more logical preset listing...

Thanks. How are the pads on the sr-18 compared to the sr-16?

Do you mean the physical feel of them? Both are fine but I really never use them - I also program my beats.
|ics1974 ||03-21-2013 06:26 AM |
You can program your beats without the pads? Does the sr 18 sound better?

Yep. It's called "step editing" much easier to create complex rhythms. I didn't have the 16 and 18 at the same time so I didn't do a side by side audio comparison but I didn't notice much sound difference with the 18.

I had the sr-16..it was awesome.
sold it..regretted it and bought a boss dr..suttin er otherr..friggin sucked . i miss the sr-16.
i know that prolly dont help much. but i can only surmise that the sr-18 can do the same as the 16, even if it has new added useless features. ;)

Get the 16.

I've had an SR16 for 20 years or so.
It's been fantastic.
Saying that, I'll buy an 18 one of these days because the sound samples are supposed to be better.

I've had both. The sounds of the SR-16 sound very dated to me. Great box if you're into 80s drum sounds. But, I prefer the 18 since it has more sounds available.
