The second parameter, Chorus Speed, gives you control over the modulation rate of the effects – pitch in the case of chorus and time in the case of flanging. Request a new review. Did you try many other models before getting this one?
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.
Having already enjoyed its second coming, the Midiverb is now on its third – so what have Alesis added to their already successful formula for ? Obviously each program is likely to be tailored to suit individual applications, and parameters will be tweaked and adjusted, but it really a,esis possible to stray too far from what’s already provided.
User reviews: Alesis MidiVerb III – Audiofanzine
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 midivreb attempt to deny it.
As with reverb, the first edit parameter in the chorus section allows you to choose the algorithm which forms the basis of each program.
Also featuring gear in this article. Actually, given the multiple effects of which each of these units is capable, it is perhaps a little odd that Alesis should have stuck with the verb suffix in midoverb naming of their products.
On middiverb more positive note, the manual contains individual block diagrams for each of the 15 configurations, and lists the aless effects possibilities available from each. Certainly, this new level of sophistication has made them a viable and cost-effective alternative for guitarists and other instrumentalists – the days of dead 9V batteries and flangers taking the short way off the front of the stage may soon be over. But then, I don’t suppose Alesis need any marketing lessons from me.
But alesks the lot of the designers at a company like Alesis: 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.
More on this later. Nigel Lord checks the latest incarnation of Alesis’ standard-setting reverb. Previous article in this issue: Following the emergence of Yamaha’s hugely popular SPX90, a few midivefb ago, it quickly became clear that the way forward was the area of multi-effects, where a single unit was capable of providing reverb, chorus, ADT, flanging and delay in various combinations – and, of course, under the control of MIDI.

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.
In a number of configurations, the Delay section is used to provide a pre-delay for the reverb to simulate the effect of very large rooms, whilst in others it is used as a conventional digital delay. Reverb programming is a law of diminishing returns, and beyond a certain point you can do little to a program which will ultimately benefit the music. Of course, in practice, being restricted to mono delays means little more than not being able to set up miiverb intensely irritating ping-pong’ effects which seem to crop up on most units these days if you think you’ve just unearthed an underlying prejudice of mine, you’d be right.
Not satisfied with those reviews? A very good reverb, which fits in every home-studios. Of course, it is finished in a rather conservative shade of black as opposed to the electric puce more familiar to our guitarist friends, but I’m sure alessis they could learn to live with it.
And don’t forget, the judicious application of a little high frequency roll-off courtesy of the EQ section can provide extra interest in terms of sound colouration should midoverb be required. 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 Finally, there’s the simple but all-important 9V socket through which the Midiverb draws its power.

Setting up a MIDI map is quite straightforward: As mifiverb earlier, aldsis high-cut filters which form the basis of the Midiverb’s EQ section may be applied individually to either. MIDI mapping is less complicated than it sounds and is simply a means of setting up the unit so that program change numbers sent via MIDI may be directed to any of the Midiverb’s programs. Sort by most recent most useful. All the same, people with no prior knowledge of this kind of unit our guitarist friends, for example might well undervalue the Midiverb III and that would be a shame.

And despite its 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. Next article in this issue Patchwork. 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 bit 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.
Stereo input and output jack 6. So if, like me, you enjoy writing percussion tracks which use delay as an implicit part of the rhythm, you’re likely to find the Midiverb somewhat restricted, particularly on slower tracks.
What is your opinion about the value for the price? All audio inputs are high impedance for optimum signal matching to external gear, and this may include a directly connected microphone if you’re prepared to put up with a little extra noise. All things considered, I think using the new sockets and sticking to the right power adaptor is the best approach.
Our members also liked: A total of 24 algorithms are available, divided midoverb between chorus and flanging effects.
I think it’s fair to say that on most multi-effects units, reverb quality provides the best yardstick by which it may be judged. I realise that cost is a consideration here, but this kind of display should have died out years ago. It achieves this status by virtue of being programmable – midivverb the Midiverb II is not – but having fewer effects and a slightly less impressive spec than the Quadraverb.
What are the effects, types of effects available?
But you do need to optimise your signal levels if noise isn’t to become a problem, particularly with flanging. Log in Become a member. The ROM programs included on the Midiverb III, despite not being described in the accompanying manual are in all ways representative of the sort of results it is capable of producing.
The six parameters available alesus control are reverb decay time, reverb level, delay time, delay level, delay regeneration feedback and chorus speed – giving a total of 48 routing options together with control of modulation amplitude by either a positive or negative amount.
