Alesis QuadraVerb : l'avis de moosers (contenu en anglais)

The Alesis Quadraverb is a multi-effects processor, mostly focusing on reverb and delay processing. I haven't used the in depth features of the Quadraverb, but I've used it enough to get a good gist of what it can and cannot do. As far as connections go, it's got MIDI jacks as well as 1/4" connections for stereo inputs and outputs. It is a digital effects processor, and is rack mountable in a traditional casing (it takes up only a single space).


Unlike many digital multi-effects processor like this one, the Alesis Quadraverb is actually pretty easy to use. Like I previously mentioned, I haven't gotten too in depth with the Quadraverb and have really just used the basic features for getting quick sounds. It's got a series of different buttons for choosing different effects and modes, as well as input and output levelers, and page and value scrolling buttons as well. It also features an LED screen where you can see all of your parameters and settings that aren't physically on the unit. I haven't had a need to check out the manual for this, so I can't speak about it's make up.


While I can't say I'm overly impressed with many of the effects on the Alesis Quadraverb, most of them are more than adequate and a few of them sound stellar. The effects that are featured on this unit include reverb, delay, EQ, flanger, phaser, and a ring modulator. I've mostly used this for the reverb and delay, which I believe are also the most realistic sounds on this and are the effects that have the most potential here. While the other modulation effects are pretty good, they aren't going to blow you away. This is a versatile enough piece of gear that you can use it for any application where you might want any given effect.


As far as digital multi-effects processors go, the Alesis Quadraverb is a slightly about average piece of gear in my opinion. While not as in depth or versatile as some of the other multi effects processors from this time period, it still has a good amount of sounds to bring to the table. I don't know that I would seek one of these out, but when I've got access to it I'll use it if I need it...
