Alesis QuadraVerb Simultaneous Digital Effects Processor

BY 1988 Alesis were on a roll, and with the release of the Alesis Quadraverb, they took things to the next level and continued to dominate the market for home recording. The Alesis Qudraverb's party trick of course, was that it could use up to four different effects, reverb, delay, pitch and equalizer, simultaneously. And it did so with 20k bandwidth!

The Alesis QuadraVerb is a full 20K bandwidth stereo effects processor allows up to four of the most popular digital effects (Reverb, Delay, Pitch Change, and EQ) to be used simultaneously.

Details

The signal path order of the effects is highly flexible and programmable. All effects parameters are fully and programmable. The QuadrcVerb is also MIDI controllable, with many of its parameters accessible from any MIDI controller in real time.

The QuadraVerb contains 90 factory programs which can be modified or erased as needed. At any time one or all of these programs can be recalled in their original form, even if they have been erased or modified, since they are resident in Read Only Memory onboard the unit (see Recalling Factory Programs below).

Factory Program 89 is a demo program that can be used to listen to the differences between the five effect configurations, which are variations of the signal flow path through the QuadraVerb. You can use the CONFIG and VALUE buttons to select and audition the five configurations, while listening to the differences in effects in each one.

Had the unit in our electro studio, was great on all the drum reverbs. To my ears very 1980’s sounding, our unit required a new display.

  1. I have one of thies units, it needs a look at, makes a noise, hard to discribe it, you only hear it when you turn the amp up, i have the shadows on the 100 programs, some of them have been changed to the list i been given. want the orignal shadows added back. do not want to any factory reset i might lose them all together.
