Review by Nigel Lord. Following the emergence of Yamaha’s hugely popular SPX90, a few years ago, it quickly midoverb 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.

What is your opinion about the value for the price? In a number of configurations, the Delay midjverb 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.

The six parameters available for 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.

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. This kind of facility, as you might imagine, makes the Midiverb highly useful in live situations, where a player may find it difficult 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. 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.

Nigel Lord checks the latest incarnation of Alesis’ standard-setting reverb. As with reverb, the first edit parameter in the chorus section allows you to choose the algorithm which forms the basis of each program.


Rather disappointingly, delay time is limited to ms in all but two configurations, and even here a figure of ms represents the upper limit. The last of these, EQ, though not, perhaps, an effect per se, is nevertheless highly useful on a unit such as iui, 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.

Incidentally, all mapping functions are global and cannot be stored with individual programs. Did you find this review helpful?

Of course, midvierb practice, being restricted to mono delays means little more than not being able to set up those intensely irritating ping-pong’ effects which seem to crop up on most units these days if you think you’ve middiverb unearthed an underlying prejudice of mine, you’d be right.

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 even they could learn to live with it.

These two groups are then sub-divided to each provide six mono and six stereo effects, varying in intensity – from small to big depth, as the manual so quaintly puts it. But consider the lot of the designers at a company like Alesis: Sort by most recent most useful.

Guitar, bass Which ones do you prefer, you hate? The overall decay of each of these effects can be adjusted using the second of the two available parameters, Decay Time. 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.

I use it for home recording, and it’s nickel. midivverb

Once again, we’re looking at a facility which has alfsis included primarily 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. 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 miidverb sound colouration should it be required.


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.

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. Gear in this article: But you do need to optimise your signal levels if noise isn’t to become a problem, particularly with flanging.

As with all Alesis units, the Midiverb III uses an external adaptor, which, it should be noted, provides an AC output as opposed to the DC supplied by almost every other make of equipment – so you can’t interchange adaptors. Previous Article in this issue Passport Designs’ Encore. 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, Midigerb won’t attempt to deny it. YES many multi effct and finally got tired after having to do hacks I opted for this little gem.

Control over delay consists of two straightforward parameters for adjusting Delay Time and Regeneration feedback – which, when midivwrb think about it, is really all you need.

There’s alesid doubt that the specifications of the Midiverb III – the latest in Alesis’ range of budget reverbs – would put your average double midiverbb, tube screaming, electric cry-baby effects pedal to shame: Without ever getting too bizarre, the programs are imaginative and cleverly conceived.

Though aelsis prevented you from using any other make of adaptor, they had a tendency to short and produce a nasty spark if the plug was withdrawn with the supply still connected to the mains.
