Und mit 8 Trigger Eingängen!

SOUND sample playback, play it directly - for radio shows or live performance with some samples needed or triggered via MIDI

very cool for drummers who want samples, 8 pads or anything that you designed that is some sort of a trigger switch will work.
SOUND sample playback, live abfeuern und als Drum Expander für 8 selbstgebaute Trigger-Auslöser (super!)
VERSION with as a 8 pad drum kit or
without sample pads, as a 19" rack

Akai has this sample engine in their MPX8 and 16 series.
VERSION Als Sample Pad oder Rack,

von Akai gibt es ähnliche Geräte als Pad-Controller mit Sampler namens MPX8 und 16.


strange, they always had real usable things, they invented the ADAT recorders and a series of well known FX boxes. the best known one and now discontinued is the 16 voiced real analogue Andromeda, which drew much more attention to Alesis as a synth manufacturer who instroduced VA synths later. today they changed more to the DAW kind of products which are still interesting like more affordable CC boxes for DAW and Mixing. after the release of Andromeda they went into insolvency and where bought by Numark, the DJ mixer company and the A6 dropped the price but the Andro team was fired. anyway it was the most remarkable product of Alesis ever made. there's no other 16 voice poly synth of that complexity around and will sooner or later be mentioned along with the Jupiter 8, the Matrx 12 or the Prophet 5. So thanks to Dave Bryce and Mike Peake (and others) for struggeling to make it real and hope there will be a second generation "Andromeda" incl. 3 Octave, Desktop and Rack Verison with faster LFO as they all wish.

Alesis now belongs to the inMusic group (along with Akai, Numark and ion)

Official Intl. Site :

Alesis gehört wie Akai und Numark zur inMusic Group.

Die Ur-Firma war vor Allem durch das ADAT Format 8Spur Recorder bekannt und die gleichnamige digitale Schnittstelle mit Lichtleitern für bis zu 8 Kanäle. Sie ist auch 2014 noch ein Standard in Audio-Interfaces.

Nach dem Alesis Andromeda - oder genauer während er in den Markt ging, ging die Firma insolvent und wurde von Numark gekauft.

heute gehören Numark, Alesis und Akai zur in Music Group (USA).
