Oooof, that Jeff Mills video both reignites my RE909 gas and inspires me to just throw in the fucking towel. HAHAHA

For decent acoustic sounds and the ability to compose songs I would not overlook any of the stand alone Akai MPCs. Load in what you want, run around with a microphone, have a blast.

I agree that the HR16 sounds better than the SR16, and the ability to tune the sounds deeper or higher by a factor of 2 makes for a great industrial machine, plus the converters are a bit more raw sounding to me ears. There are dry sounds on the SR16 as well, but over all it seems Alesis steered the SR into a tighter window of "realism" and user friendliness than what the HR offers. I prefer the HR, but for live stuff I'd be more comfortable tossing the SR into the car. Neither machine is going to trick many into thinking it's an actual drummer.

I have not and am also curious, the additional feature set does look interesting.

Hey Jerry, it's an SR-16 clone, but it was sold with a set of external drum pads, and features external triggers for the whole kit.

This one is $99 with the brain & the pads, in serviceable condish :::crackersgif:::

Also, this vid is apples n' oranjes (anyone else's ears are probably better than mine), but here ye blows:

I had previously thought the ion company was part of of the inMusic buyout of Alesis, but I guess that happened in 2010 (and hence, the Miniak, which was a dupe of the Alesis Micron......sort of).

But then again, maybe it was :lol:

True, but with some finessing, you could also buy one o' deez MIDI comptrollers (at least, in theory) 4 ULTIMATE MAYHAM

I know it only werks w/ the Nord 2, but I imagine it's thee only way 2 make the Alesis palatable, also MAYHAM :animal:

Practical catte mite have 2 take a bath on this, and he h8s baths :cry:

Supposedly the SR-18 lets you remove the effects. Plus a low-pass filter and a decay control which might be fun. :idk:

If it wasn't for the fact that I hate programming or navigating anything roland with a screen I would invest in an R8. The rolls and accents are so much fun to incorporate into beats.
