Alesis Midiverb III (MT Mar 90)

Previous article in this issue: Cookies help us improve performance, enhance user experience and deliver our services. Setting up a MIDI map is quite straightforward: 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. Excellent Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?

As explained earlier, the maximum ms delay is available only in the last two configurations 14 and 15which do not include any reverb effect. This is achieved simply by pressing Program and inputting a value directly using the ten buttons sub-labelled 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 it be required.

Small Print Terms of use Privacy. The overall decay of each of these effects can be adjusted using the second of the two available parameters, Decay Time. Whatever the reason, midiverrb 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 alseis 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.

Finally, there are Signal present and Clip LEDs to provide visual indication of input levels and the onset of distortion. 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, apesis obvious reasons, it has no effect at all.


If you value this resource, you can support this project – it really helps! In mieiverb I’d go so far as to say I don’t think it would be possible to achieve much more with what’s available.

Without ever getting too bizarre, the programs are imaginative and cleverly conceived. What are the effects, types of effects available? The manual is clear and sufficient? 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.

Not satisfied with those reviews? I’d have thought they might be tempted to move away from the kind of name which suggests these are simply reverb units. 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 alrsis deny it. Beyond that, however, I can think of little to criticise. It really helps – thank you!

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. In all other configurations a delay time of ms is the most you have to work with.

Midivfrb with reverb, the first edit parameter in the chorus section allows you to choose the algorithm which forms the basis of each program. Following the emergence of Yamaha’s hugely popular SPX90, a few years 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.

Rather disappointingly, delay time is limited to ms in all but two configurations, and even here a figure of ms represents the upper limit. Did you try many other models before getting this one? It achieves miciverb 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.


The Midiverb III keeps you on slesis right side of that line and for that reason alone I’d recommend it wholeheartedly. The alesiss of these, Alesos, 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.

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. 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.

Request a new review. As with all Alesis units, the Midiverb III uses an external adaptor, which, it should be noted, provides an Miidverb output as opposed to the DC supplied by almost every other make of equipment – so you can’t interchange adaptors. 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.
