Alesis SR-16 Tutorials

Anybody here know where I can get some tutorials on the Alesis SR-16 Drum Machine? I picked one up off CL for $25 and heard there were some video tuts out there somewhere but can't seem to find any. I emailed Alesis but never heard back from them... apparently they used to send out a free cd of video tutorials a while back. I would have thought they would be on youtube or somewhere but can't find any.

Re: Alesis SR-16 Tutorials

Hey I finally found some.. looks like someone posted these on youtube shortly after I posted this. It was very informative and is two different videos... now I can have some real fun jamming as I create my own drum loops:

Re: Alesis SR-16 Tutorials

The last time I had one was back in 1994 I guess.
Why do you need tutorials?
It's a drum machine, and a simple one.
Sound is not good, too fake, there are a gazilion better options for computers
This song was recorded with it and a 4 track tascam tape recorder in 1994.
Me playing guitars, bass, keys and sr16 programming and my friend Tito singing.
Listen closely, you will recognize that snare sound, to me it's the only one usable in sr16
The intro (Hitler) has a mix of war sounds from different eras, lyrics are about what wacko liars do to control people and make them do crap stuff.

There you go ****ting on my parade again I got it cheap... I don't think any computer stuff can do it that cheap. Sounds good to me. My very fancy metronome. What's a good software based drum machine that sounds better for $25?

I just listened to that Nazi song. The guitarist and drummer were good but the keyboard player was lacking and the singer couldn't hit a high note to save his life

There are a gazillion drum FREE vst, and FREE is cheaper than 25 dollars and they all sound so better.Google, you know Google, right?
Why somebody in 2012 will need a fake drum machine from the 80's which is extremelly boring to program?
I think 25 dollars is too expensive taking in consideration its sound and how boring it's to program, in the end it means cables, ac adaptors, hours programming BUT fake sound with no dynamics.
Of course if you don't care about sound quality and will use it only as a metronome, it's fine but if you want to make your own songs, any vst sounds better.
If you lived in the middle of Africa and had no options, I could understand but you live in USA, you can have anything you want in your mouse

Compared to a regular metronome that thing sound good. The problem with that son is:
- Bad singer (and singing in a non musical language)
- Guitar player mechanical, not musical.
- Dam bad song, very common structure with nothing good.
