The six parameters available for control are reverb decay time, reverb level, delay time, delay level, delay regeneration feedback and chorus speed mifiverb giving a total of miduverb routing options together with control of modulation amplitude by either a positive or negative amount. Even with its restricted programming options, the Midiverb soon exhausts the range of conventional characters and starts to rely on cryptic combinations of upper and lower case letters which often defy recognition without the instruction manual in your hand.

More on this later. I’d have thought they might be tempted to move away from the kind of name midigerb suggests these are alewis reverb units. The last of these, EQ, though not, perhaps, an effect per se, is nevertheless highly useful on a unit such as this, as it can be applied individually to the input signal and to any of the other three effects, making it possible to determine the ‘colour’ of the reverb, for example.

This is quite straightforward in operation apart from its use with gated reverb effects where it is used to determine the length of the gated sound, and on reverse reverb where, for obvious reasons, it has no effect at all. Music Technology – Mar If you value this resource, you can support this mjdiverb – it really helps!

But consider the lot of the designers at a company like Alesis: I’ve no doubt that competitors will soon appear, but right now there’s nothing to compare it with at the price. Finally, there’s the simple but all-important 9V socket through which the Midiverb draws its power. Reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, the equa while 16 bits. This kind of facility, as you might imagine, makes the Midiverb highly useful in live situations, where a player may find it midoverb to move away from his or her instrument – another indication, perhaps, that Alesis were looking to extend the appeal of this unit beyond that of the home and semi-professional studio user.

In fact I’d go so far as to say I don’t think it would be possible to achieve much more with what’s available. Our members also liked: For example, in some configurations the chorus effect is connected directly to the output whilst in others it is applied to the input of the reverb or delay effects.

A very good reverb, which fits in every home-studios. Review by Nigel Lord. Whether you decide to do it this way depends very much on what it is you need to input, but I found myself using the keypad more and more after getting impatient waiting for the increment button to step from program 6 to program Nigel Lord checks the latest incarnation of Alesis’ standard-setting reverb. The chorus and flanging effects, though not the most convincing I’ve ever heard, are certainly very usable, especially at the more subtle end of the range.

If you’re enjoying midiverv site, please consider supporting me to help build this archive There are 15 configurations in all, consisting of various effects combinations – though in all cases, the input filter of the EQ section comes first in the chain.

Once again, we’re looking at a facility which has been included a,esis as a means of producing more convincing reverb effects, but it does have its place in tailoring the overall sound of the unit, which for those without individual EQ controls on the effects loops on their mixing desks and so on, should prove quite useful.

Having already enjoyed its second coming, the Midiverb is now on its third – so what have Alesis added to their alesiz successful mkdiverb for ?

Sort by most recent most useful. Previous Article in this issue Passport Designs’ Encore. Obviously midiiverb program is likely to be tailored to suit individual applications, and parameters will be tweaked and adjusted, but it really isn’t possible to stray too far from what’s already provided.

Next article in this issue Patchwork. What are the effects, types of effects available? Without ever getting too bizarre, the programs are imaginative and cleverly conceived. To my mind it offers just the right amount of programmability for an effects unit – and if that seems to imply I think some units offer too much, I won’t attempt to deny it. The manufacturers would, I’m sure, argue that this simply represented the next logical step in reverb unit design, but I have a suspicion it had something to do with musicians and studio engineers soon realising that having 30 or 40 different reverb patches to play with sounded great, aleis trying to discern more than about a dozen of them within the context of the average mix was damn near impossible.


Actually, this is tied in with the fact that Alesis used to fit miniature 3. YES many multi effct and finally got aleesis after having to do hacks I opted for this little gem.

It really helps – thank you! As with reverb, the first edit parameter in the chorus section allows you to choose the algorithm which forms the basis of each program. And this being the case, actually having a half-second delay at your disposal in any form can alsis be regarded as a bonus. I use it for home recording, and it’s nickel. Whatever the reason, the user as is so often the case with mass-market equipmenthas come out on top, and with the current crop of machines offering three or four simultaneous midvierb stereo effects at about the same price you’d have paid for a unit with three or four different 8-bit reverb patches a few years ago, there seems little for us to complain about.

I won’t insult you with a description of the Value, Edit, Bypass, Store or Program number buttons, but Configure and Modulation require a few words of explanation. And despite midiveb inherent limitations the delay section acquits itself too – even below the ms mark, you can coax enough slapback echo and ADT effects out of it to make it earn its keep.
