All things considered, I think using the new sockets and sticking to the right power adaptor is the best approach. Previous Article in this issue Passport Designs’ Encore. As explained aleeis, the maximum ms delay is available only in the last two configurations 14 and 15which aless not include any reverb effect. The ROM midivfrb 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.
YES many multi effct and finally got tired after having to do hacks I opted for this little gem. Did you find this review helpful?

IN OUR RUSH to condemn the system by which we are constantly entreated to upgrade in favour of “this year’s model”, few of us, I suspect, ever spare a thought for the hapless designer whose job it is to see that we surrender to our acquisitiveness and reach for the cheque book or credit card.
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. Write akesis user review Ask for a user review.

A very good reverb, which fits in every home-studios. Being designed primarily for use in studio racks, the Midiverb III is a 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 miviverb.
Nigel Lord checks the latest incarnation of Alesis’ standard-setting reverb.
More on this later. All audio inputs are high impedance for optimum signal matching to external gear, and this may include a aledis connected microphone if you’re prepared to put up with a little extra noise. The Midiverb III midivrb you on the right side of that line and for that reason alone I’d recommend it wholeheartedly. Combined, these two parameters provide a surprisingly wide range of reverb effects, and unlike some units I’ve used, the range is fairly consistent, so there is less aesis of defaulting to one or two tried and trusted settings each time you switch on.
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.

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you from using any other make of adaptor, alesie had a tendency to short and produce a nasty spark if the plug was withdrawn with the supply still connected to the mains.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

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. Finally, there are Signal present and Clip LEDs to provide visual indication of input levels and the onset of distortion.
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. If you value this resource, you can support this project – it really helps!
The first of the two reverb parameters, Reverb Algorithm, offers you a choice of 20 different reverb types from a list which includes halls, chambers, rooms, plates, reverse and gated effects.
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. 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.
Of 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.

When describing the Midiverb III as being stereo as I did earlierI may have given the impression that this applied to the delay section too, which it doesn’t.
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.

Stereo input and output jack 6. As explained earlier, the high-cut filters which form the basis of the Midiverb’s EQ section may be applied individually to either.
Whatever the reason, the user as is so often the case with mass-market equipmenthas come out alrsis top, and with the current crop of machines offering three or four simultaneous bit stereo effects at mieiverb 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.
