Alesis DEQ230
What are the effects, types of effects available?
graphic equalizer 31 band 2 times

What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)

Are they edited? Via a publisher Mac / PC?
edit band by band and possible consolidation, 20 user memories

What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
analog (RCA) 4 dbv, not enough to use PA

Is this a rack or rack-mount model?
19 "


The general configuration is simple?
a bit complicated editing commands, in no way a graphic for live, too long to handle, but for use against a piano, the great class

Editing sounds and effects is easy?
see above

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
impossible to use without knowing the commands and shortcuts


The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
discrete graphics and very accurate, no interest for use in shock like the new way of adding sound that leaves no part in the midrange and voice

Which instruments do you use?
yamaha digital piano (the sound is delivered with inaudible unless you push to the max, if you live in an apartment like me, try this chart with a good quality amp (Harman Kardon Hk970 and 2 passive monitors JBL Control One, avoid mosfet too glittering in the treble), there are ways to make cute little sounds nice and accurate enough to work well without using a headphone that you will destroy your ears in no time ... with a few watts, and feel very detached cYou'll feel fine. The amp must be very powerful (2 x 80 Watts) to recover the toilet with high (the famous dynamic ...)

Which ones do you prefer, you hate?


For how long have you been using it?
6 months

What thing do you like most/least about it?
fineness of constant Q, a marvel to remove unwanted frequencies without killing the tone of the whole, the indicator lights without interest, all within a 19 "and a unit

Did you try many other models before getting this one?
heaps, violent and stained possible, finally, moderation, pay here unless you love the glitz and bright piano, personal, sound Bosendorfer does not really amazes me ....

What is your opinion about the value for the price?

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

Alesis DEQ230
2 x 30 band eq + / - 12 dB
Jack Connections (no XLR) and SPDIF (I DEQ230D version)
Midi In / Out / Thru
1U 19 '


Super simple: you select the frequency or frequencies, and boost or cut with the buttons up and down ...
Bypass button

30 user presets, 30 factory presets.

English manual pretty damn

I installed it in the following string: Triaxis -> Triple-C Compressor -> DEQ230 -> Eclipse -> Amp


In analog connections, converters are good, they do not distort the sound.

And eq works well

Small regret: latency (less than 1 sec) when changing program ... A little annoying in a guitar rack used to spillover effects ...


I bought it despite the advice and comments kinder_guano ... I can paraitrent justified. Therefore it is essential to purchase the DEQ203D.

This brings the "D"? € 100 more expensive, and in addition to a digital connection and a Real Time Analyzer, Version "D" is used to select the MIDI channel on which the animal is going to work ..

And that's why I think our friends have not installed Alesis MIDI implementation.

Indeed, it can work very well for guitar (which is my case), by assigning it to a specific channel, and having a foot which accepts multi MIDI channels (type Berhinger FCB1010 or Rocktron All Access).
