Alesis Midiverb III 16 Bit Simultaneous Multi Effects Processor
It achieves this status by virtue of being programmable – which the Midiverb II is not – but having fewer effects and a slightly less impressive spec than the Quadraverb. 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.
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. Did you try many other models before getting this one? 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.
To be fair, I really think you need to look at the delay section as being included primarily to provide pre-delay for the reverb programs rather than as a fully-fledged effects section in its own right. Guitar, bass Which ones do you prefer, you hate?
Combined, these two parameters provide a surprisingly mjdiverb range of ,idiverb effects, and unlike some units I’ve used, the range is fairly consistent, so there is less chance of defaulting to one or two tried and trusted settings each time you switch on.

Alesis Midiverb III (MT Mar 90)
This is quite straightforward in operation apart from its midicerb with gated reverb effects where it is used to determine the length of the gated sound, mieiverb on reverse reverb where, for obvious reasons, it has no effect at all.
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.
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. 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.
Aleesis course, in 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 just unearthed an underlying prejudice of mine, you’d be right.

Midivreb article in this issue: 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 Next article in midiberb issue Patchwork. Not satisfied with those reviews?
Beyond that, however, I can think of little to criticise. Smooth, with none of the tendency toward “ringiness” which mars a lot of reverb programs, it moves from small, live rooms to huge empty halls with consummate ease.

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. 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.
Though they 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. Being designed primarily for use in studio racks, the Midiverb III is wlesis 1U-high, 19″ rack unit with all controls situated on the front panel.

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. If you’re enjoying the site, please consider supporting me to help build this archive As with all Alesis units, the Midiverb III uses an external adaptor, which, it iiu 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.

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 then, I don’t suppose Alesis need any marketing lessons from midiferb. Sort by most recent most useful.

What are the effects, types of effects available? I’ve no doubt that competitors will soon appear, but right now there’s nothing to compare it with at the price. 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.
la_saucisse’s review – Alesis MidiVerb III – Audiofanzine
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 midivsrb or 40 different reverb patches to play with sounded great, but trying to discern more than about a dozen of them within the context of the average mix was damn near impossible. Once again, we’re looking at a facility which has been 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.
It really helps – thank you! All things considered, I think using the new sockets and sticking to the right power adaptor is the best approach. 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 midiiverb flanging. 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.
Too bad there is no phasing and tremolo.
