Alesis SR-16 - 16 Bit Stereo Drum Machine Alesis S R16 16 Bit Stereo Drum Machine The SR-16, a stereo drum machine featuring stereo samples, is an easily programmable, portable and affordable instrument. The sounds are clean, well recorded, and useful; nothing esoteric here, but a drum sounds like a drum, and, with the Dynamic Articulation functionality embedded in the pads, responds like one as well. The SR-16 has a nice feel not always associated with a 96 PPQ resolution, and the pattern presets were composed and played in by actual DRUMMERS, who’ve imparted some genuine musicality and usefulness to what are often odiously lifeless little demos. Those who are novices will appreciate the instant grooves, those inclined to roll their own will appreciate the intuitive design and responsiveness of the machine as a musical instrument. A 7-position panner is available for a nice stereo spread, and the MIDI implementation is appropriate. The sounds are served seasoned and sampled with cushy reverbs, or dry, for console processing, and sent to a pair of assignable 1/4” stereo outputs. There’s no obsolescence built into well recorded musical sounds, which is one of the reasons why this machine has been around for. a while, so, anyone from a solo clubdate performer to a songwriter or programmer will probasbly be using the SR-16 for a while, too.

This year, we bid farewell to Amy Winehouse, Clarence Clemons and Heavy D and said hello to ‘Lulu.’ R.E.M. called it quits, while Creed began work on a new album. Axl Rose took Guns N’ Roses back on the road, but Izzy, Slash and Duff were still nowhere to be found. Clearly, 2011 has been less than perfect.
But the news hasn’t been all bad, and if New England’s 17th century pilgrims — a group of people even crankier and more self-righteous than today’s indie-rock fans — could find it in their hearts to co-invent Thanksgiving, we here at Spinner can show our gratitude for what blessings the year has brought.
So, in the spirit of the season, consider us thankful …
… R.E.M. split up before making their dubstep album. Why couldn’t Korn have done likewise?
… jurors in California and coroners in Britain have brought some closure to the deaths of Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse. We prefer to remember these tragic heroes for their music, not for who or what did them in.

A PRINT by John Lennon was one of more than 150 artworks to go under the hammer during a massive art auction held in Darwin at the weekend. But Framed gallery owner Anne Phelan was surprised an array of Beatles’ memorabilia did not sell on Friday night. The print of a purple elephant was valued at $1650, but it was passed in after no one bid $800. Yesterday, Ms Phelan’s phone was ringing with bidders who realised they had missed out on a bargain on Friday night. Jayne Bade, of Brinkin, who purchased five paintings by contemporary Australian artists, regretted not bidding. “We bought too many by the time this came up,” Ms Bade said.Click On READ MORE
Following the announcement by the Crown Prosecution Service that it has agreed to take on the prosecution of Bobby and Moira Roberts in relation to the mistreatment of their circus elephant Anne, Animal Defenders International (ADI) is now calling for her plight to become symbolic of a UK wild animal circus ban. And Sir Paul McCartney has pledged his support to ADI’s campaign. “I hate to see wild animals in circuses,” said the Beatles legend. “It is heartbreaking to see these poor animals confined in small cages and carted around the country with little respect for their welfare and well-being. I have made my feelings known previously on this subject and I believe an outright ban is long overdue.” Click On READ MORE
What It is: The Fender Vintage Hot Rod ’52 Telecaster is a great concept well executed by the fine folks over at Fender. It has an ash body with a U shaped maple neck and fretboard, but from there, this Tele takes on some great hot rod appointments. The neck is fretted with medium jumbo frets, and has a flatter radius than stock 52 Telecasters. The bridge pickup is a custom vintage Tele model, and in the neck position in place of the standard single coil pickup is a Seymour Duncan Mini-Humbucker. This one comes in a classic Butterscotch Blonde color.Click On READ MORE
