I'm very interested in buying a Alesis SR-16 drum machine. I've wanted one I can use for basic beats with some jam sessions. I'm not really looking for this to be your average "real" drummer. I want to be able to set up some relatively techno sounding one measure loops. How are the techno sounds on it? Do they compare to the Roland 808 or the 909? Could I get a boss drum machine more compatable with better sounding patches for what I want used for around the same price?
