The Alesis HR-16 (High sample Rate / 16-bit drum machine) is a user friendly, yet extremely powerful MIDI drum sequencer / sound generator. The sound generation cpabilities of the HR-16 include 16 independent drum "voices", each of which can be assigned to any one of 49 digial samples, and can be routed witha 7 position pan to one of twh sets of stereo outputs. Each voice can also be tuned independently in 32 seperate increments over an octave and a half.
The sequencing of the drums is accomplished by entering record, and then playing on the touch-sensative drum buttons on the front panel, which is then stored into a "pattern." There can be up to 100 patterns in the HR-16's memory (00-99). These patterns can be anywhere from 1 to 682 beats long. The patterns can be combined into lists of patterns, which are called "songs." There can be up to 100 songs in the HR-16's memory (00-99), and each can contain a list of patterns up to 255 steps long.
The 16 drum pads at the front of the HR-16 are velocity-sensitive. How hard the pad is hit determines the volume of the drum on 8 levels. 12 of the pads (all pads except Closed Hat, Mid Hat, Open Hat, and Crash) are each directly assigned to a voice. This mans that playing a pad repeatedly will retrigger the same voice, and no other pad will effect the voice.
