Tutorial: How to make a beat on the Alesis HR-16

By MrMoviedirector102 on 01/09/2012 - (Anyone)

I will tell you how to make a beat on the Alesis Hr-16...

  1. Turn on the machine
  2. Plug the machine into a music amp of some sort
  3. Go to "Pattern 1" (Go to this to start a new Pattern)
  4. Choose a time signature on the side of the machine (such as 4/4)
  5. Then, Press "Record" (The button should be red)
  6. Right after you press "Record", press the "Play" button
  7. If you did the steps correctly, clicks or what sounds like drumstick hits, will start to make a noise.
  8. After that, Just hit the drums/ Special noises and make the beat.
  9. While you are hitting the beat, it saves it and you only repeat it 2x
  10. When you are done hit the "Stop" button and it will stop the clicks and the beat.
  11. If you want to hear it, the hit "Pattern 1"
  12. ...then press "Play" and you will hear the beat without the clicks

-Now you are done. If you follow these steps correctly, you should be able to make a Pattern.

-If you want to make "Pattern 2"- Follow the steps 3-12 but change "Pattern 1" to "Pattern 2"

-This should be it. If you need any help, go to this youtube address-  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICCcagNRNoE
