drum_de_drum's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" I do not like ..."
The configuration settings are simple, the only problem is that in there! editing is simple but really too restrictive, rendering is not up to par.
Effects are editable, do flanger chorus is simple, the delay is very effective in fact it is the reason why I am separated! Pingpong not worthy of the name, no adjustment possible time to demisemiquaver to 127BPM.
I used this for a year, the effect is not expensive but I think it has what you pay for, the cosmetic is nice, that's all. I still bought Lexicon.

Strato1963's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent tool!"
Mine is a generation old (<1999), I do not know the latest generation ALESIS since changed owners several times.
Personally, I edit my sounds via Unisyn an old MOTU software runs only on older Mac G4 equipped with Mac OS 9.
Today, I do more than serve to provide reverb returns headphones making sounds.
I had a manual in English, but fortunately, this module is so simple and intuitive that the manual does not use much.
In fact, the sound editing is a cinch as long as you mastering reverb and what its parameters.
Note that there are two blocks configurable as desired and are available in a range of temporal effects (chorus, flanger, delay, etc ...).
It is possible to obtain a stereo processing "real" by configuring two motors in parallel by assigning the same effect.
Programs origins are a bit too typical, probably to highlight the craft. However, for those who take the time to understand the usability simple, it is easy to take beautiful reverbs by combining the second module.
Note the presence of unpleasant digital artifacts when the parameters are pushed too far.
Midiverb my IV was in turn used as main reverb in my guitar rack, and for mixing some way to keep the secondary instruments, and finally its utility is still the sound for listening comfort musicians.
Obsolete technology, but an effect, whatever it is, becomes too? My answer is no.
I bought mine in 1995 for the sum of CHF 2450 At this time, I tried everything that was in this price range (not much, indeed!).
At the same time, I doubled my buy a Digitech DSP128 + makes me always full menu services. All these old modules can remain formidable tools. Like all reverbs, they have specific tones and grains.
At a time when everything is in the computer, it is nice to have modules like this to give a little more productions smoothed by software a bit overrated.
My home studio is based on this concept, except analog recording tracks on the Mac. I try to mix by hand as the former when projects are manageable.
To me, his biggest weakness is the external power supply. I really hate this stuff.
Strengths: Personality marked, easy to program, large bright screen, sounds very suitable. Bit noisy despite the lack of inputs - outputs.
I do not know the newer models, but I would do this choice with your eyes closed.
Value - unbeatable price.

Bout'chou's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" It's great to start!"
It is very easy to use! This is very convenient is its large screen which allows to see all available settings. By against something that is not terrible I think these are the names of presets not always easy to understand, such as A1-Anda-or-Buttah it is not very clear!
I like the chorus and reverbs including short flat are very nice! on the other hand I prefer my long reverbs lxp 5 which I think are more beautiful.
I bought mine used in perfect condition there about 3 years and I am more than happy! Except for the backlight no longer works. Apparently this is a common problem MIDIVERB. Good that prevent them from working with because we can still see what we do, but hey it's a little messy. In addition we are forced to work in full sunlight.
I would do this choice without hesitation, she helped me out and also do lots of interesting things with my bass and my keyboards!

petrone's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
It is stereo.
For use, it is relatively simple although the absence of a knob wet / dry directly accessible is severely lacking. In all, there are enough parameters to control its sound.
Regarding the sound, well it is not the Lexicon but it is not bad for the price. Personally, I do not get reverb, the rest does not interest me.
I have since acquired a UAD and I confess that I use the Alesis much less but I still love my Alesis well. Now, I do not leaves in gold and I have never been able to compare products more upscale hard, and in general, it is the comparison that kills. So if this is your first reverb, yes, go ahead.
I have 2 years and apart from a Behringer multi-effects, I never had any other hardware reverbs. While it is true that the sound is pretty decent but I think plugins are better quality. For the sound, it does.
Please note that the data wheel tends quickly tired.
In terms of price / quality ratio, yeah that troubleshoots.
Repeat this choice, no problem.

blackle's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" A little reverb .."
This machine offers a wide range of effects ranging from reverb through the effects of transpositions, chorus, flanger .. or simple delay.
Operation is simple and intuitive, wide screen LCD is for many. This screen, editing mode, always display four parameters editable and selectable four buttons named A, B, C and D. Values are changed using the knob "Value", the constitutive parameters of a program are stored in pages 1, 2, etc. .. Anyway parameters editions of reverb are few (at most ten), therefore storage per page I think is a good idea ..
You should know that this Midiverb 4 offers four types of operation:
which is typically four modes of chaining effects. That being said, any time these modes can not be changed by any edition .. It is a shame ..
on the other hand Midi implementation is not the most intuitive, competition is better (Lexicon, Tc etc. ..), but with a little practice you can get by pretty quickly.
Start with the reverberations. We really can not say they are conspicuous by their nature, but they are still used in most cases, provided they are at least edited. Indeed, (no pun intended) to the factory settings were probably made for "grandstanding" suddenly making their farms say .. difficult to see difficult .. on the other hand, once published, they are able to embellish a source of pleasant way. Moreover, it is also important to note that this Midiverb 4 is probably one of the only reverb "floor price" or can be used without blushing programs reverb with a long decay ..
Deadlines are in turn somewhat perfectible as not offering enough delay time, and certainly not enough available settings. It is far from a dedicated period Tc type D-Two, Yamaha D 5000 and consort .. this being, this finding with few exceptions, is valid for all multi-effects, and it is when the range ..
The chorus and flanger are other really good. And say all games are practically equal to those present on a MPX 1! Obviously if we ignore settings available on this Lexicon .. in the register of phase effects to bury the Midiverb 4, and staying at Lexicon, it took me to get one .. PCM 80!
The effects of transpositions are pretty average, difficult to use on an instrument and almost impossible voice .. In contrast the different combinations of effects are rather very successful and perfectly usable.
Well obviously if you're used to using professional units it is likely that this little bike will leave marble look will make you smile .. Yes, but .. in you a closer look there is also a safe bet that this little Alesis surprise you in many ways! Including certain combinations of effects very very successful!
Okay, it blows a little. The editing parameters are a bit limited time. She certainly has a full Midi implementation but not easy to use. It has inputs and outputs a bit anemic .. Okay .. but do not forget the price. And sincerely I'm really trying to ask me to buy one. Firstly because it really appealed to me, and secondly, with hindsight, she finally has its place alongside the Lexicon, Yamaha and others of Tc and Quantec ..

Maolyn's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
The connector is also good trs: two jack in, two out (Stereo forces), and between one and a midi output (I never tried to sync, but as it MIDI is ca must be possible - and especially interesting to see the delay ...)
The configuration is, contrary to what I read, really simple trs. The sub-menus are very practical, it's always good recess ennervant davoir turn the big knob to select an effect, but you soon.
Personally I find the effects very good, I read an opinion or the person said that the range of effects not n'tait trs adapted guitar, ben recess if it is not known to use it. .. It is true that the presets are EXAGRES, but set a little bit while we rev quickly get excellent sounds, and even pushing some effects up to get it just sounds crazy, trs psychedelics.
For the cons, but this may be due to the fact that mine is pretty "old and use" - it blows!
I use this processor for several days, and I am Fully satisfied. I got used to it and quickly trs I recommend anyone looking CRER sound trs staff for their instrument, and any person seeking to effect his home studio.
recess there are better, but with a little research and by combining other effects are not really doing professional work with this machine.
Shame about the hum.

benjamin55's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
When I had j'tais beginners and I just galr because the manual is really rev limit, however, there is the point. We must get started and within days we take the machine in good hands. Do not do the heavy and it put a big hit, otherwise it does not exploit it thoroughly.
Of course, if you feel like a used toy, its been 5min DLIR but it is quickly and limit rsultats are average. You really have a sound head, just try and triturated until get the sound you want. When you understand the trick and that it takes time, there is no problem and rsulat Excellent.
I use it for voice whether it be live or in studio. I galr to beginners and j'tais limit and nerv. In c'tait made my fault and I had enough on it boss. Now it's a rgale and gives me ambances and warmth in his voice that turns a title.

Anonymous 's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
The device has an LCD light practice and trs.
It is very easy to edit the effects mainly through its widescreen
The quality of sound is to go despite what some may say? Especially as this product is still in the catalog of Alesis while this is not a rcent. C therefore the mark of quality since they still sell right?
2videment lexicon if one compartment is not the same CATEGORY. But rather than ruining it, buy the Used (150 to 200 euros).
For the price there's nothing to say.
On occasion it is still a good value quality price trs. Rverb This is especially well suited for voice.

mdtjoe's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
audio jack connectors. MIDI (in, out, through)
External power supply with a connector way cheap effect pedals.
Full menu with sub menus and full of parameter. Not at all intuitive. The presets are not really utilisbles, the effects are too pousss. It takes hours to find her.
The reverbs are blurred, I do not think it is a product for a guitar rack. For a home studio, unwanted, I find the edition of a plug 100 000 times more comfortable for a better quality.
I have 5 years. I use it anymore for 3 years. I saw that there are still in store, I do not understand why. I never t packed. Otherwise, on mine, too, has made me retroclairage. Invest in a package plutt style Waves plug.
