"Complex but awesome"

Alesis QuadraVerb IIPublished on 09/08/20 at 12:42
In my setup, I use both the QV2 and a Lexicon MPX1 and even in that situation, the Quadraverb 2 doesn't disappoint. The reverb is sufficiently lush and soft, although indeed a bit metallic at times, if you feed it sharp sounds (like digital synths). It is however not at all sounding cheap and I've previously owned cheap Alesis and Lexicon reverbs to compare it with. The other effects are very suitable for the synthesizer music I make.

That said, editing is rather difficult to edit, with up to 8 processing steps that all have their own parameter.

Current prices however, are insane. I've bought mine many years back for EUR 50,- and currently they go for anything between 300 and 900 US......

They're definitely not worth that kind of money, better go for a Lexicon MPX1 (or Lexicon PCM90, Eventide Space or Strymon BigSky if you're only after reverbs) instead.

"Complicated possibilities "

Alesis QuadraVerb IIPublished on 08/12/12 at 07:43
This unit works both in analog (1/4" jack) and digital (ADAT). You get MIDI comparability in regards to switching between presets along with on the fly changes. When using it, in the digital domain, you need to use the word clock 48kHz input, in order to sync it with your DAW.

When investing in this unit, you get four different types of effects. Pitch, Delay, Equalization and of course Reverb. Each effect then has several different types in it. For instance, the pitch effect includes Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Leslie, Pitch shifting, Detune and Ring Modulator. The delay block includes 6 different types of delay including mono and multi-tap versions. Finally the reverb ranges from small......

For instance, the pitch effect includes Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Leslie, Pitch shifting, Detune and Ring Modulator. The delay block includes 6 different types of delay including mono and multi-tap versions. Finally the reverb ranges from small club rooms to huge halls. Each with programmable parameters, like decay, pre-delay, diffusion and so on.

Further controllability can be found in the bypass jack input and the tap tempo input jack, found on the back of the unit.

UTILIZATION

The basic operation of the unit is simple, but when you want to program you own presets, you might want do get a hold of the manual. Should you not have it (in case you bought the unit second hand), you can find it online and download it. As far as I know, the manual only exists in english.
I tried copying a preset already in the unit, and modify it to my needs, but even that was very tricky. The manual does not state clearly, how you press 'enter', once you've found a setting that you like. The menus seem to pop up from time to time.

For some strange reason, this unit also uses the right input jack, when operating in mono mode. This is quite strange, since most units use the left input when operating in mono - So beware of that!

Should you manage to get a grip on how to program your own presets, you have plenty of room to save them. 200 slots is what you get.

SOUND QUALITY

First of all, I use this as an auxiliary effect running different tracks like vocals, guitar, piano and occasionally some drums through.
I think that the sounds on the reverbs are rather metallic and digital sounding, with a harsh top. Somewhere around 5kHz and up. I only use the reverb on the unit, so I can't comment on the other effects in this unit. I've tried various tricks in order to take away some of the metallic/digital sound of the reverb, but none of them has really worked how I wanted them to.

OVERALL OPINION

I would really not recommend this unit if you're looking for a reverb unit. Even as a multi effect processor this unit doesn't cut it. It is way to complicated to find your way around, and it's really like they wanted to put to many possibilities into this single unit, that what you really need is an education at MIT, just to know how to turn it on!
If the price is right (below 60$) give it a try, but don't expect something that sounds like a million bucks, because you'll never get that sound with this one.

Hello sorry for the late reply.
the Quadraverb 2 is a multi completely awesome and very easy indeed.
The effects are like any equipment to type standards, reverb echo time etc ...
Of course they are fully editable on the front of the machine, thanks to a large backlit LCD and keypad button screen. They can also be edited by noon. Yes it is rackable. It is in the creation of digital effects, but are analog audio inputs. no, no light but the pros microphone. concerning the connection there SEVERAL models, but in general, it is midday (in-out-thrue) audio jack 6.35, remote control 6.35

The highlight of this machine, as its name suggests, it can and does the job of 4 multi effect, each editable or you can cumuller 4 layer effects. you can also separate audio inputs 1 and 2 and treated separately.
just one flat, according to the series, there is a little noise because of the low power audio level. but we find that in all multi effects SPX type yamaha example. It is a good machine, a good compromise between analog and digital. Knowing she was released at the beginning of the digital multi effect. mine always e function, essential!

UTILIZATION

oh confuration ... you plug it sounds!
manual, if you have already used a multi purpose ... the cake!
manual you will not read ... the diagram on the LCD screen is so simple and straightforward.
if you can turn a knob, you will be the king lol
simple super edition, 300 presets and can backup external ... what the dream!
it was costing € 6,000 when it came out ... so this is the ball!

SOUND QUALITY

qualitée the Quadraverb 2 and equivalent to multi effect eventide B
perfect for digital voice and percussion instruments ... super versatile!

OVERALL OPINION

since 1991 ...
yes but it was unbeatable price level Calita
feature, quick easy editing
yes if I was or if I find at random occasions I take a second without worries
has your service

different types of delay, reverb, pitch, chorus, auto-pan, distortion.
You can create effects by assembling characters up to 8 different effects chain.
It can route differently inputs to 8 modules, it is like a pedal board with eight effects that connects almost like you want.
You can also have 2 individual mono effects.
No editing familiarized my PC.
Two oscillators are available to vary the setting of one or more effects.

UTILIZATION

The manual is well done, but it's not worth it.
It takes a little time to get used to, after, the possibilities are great.
I learned the characteristics and effects parameter with this machine.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are not great, plus a Swiss Army knife for a group repeats an effect for recording.
I used to send reverbs in networks headphone singers recording.
The distortion is ugly.
It can be used with any.
Most is the possibility of combining 8 effects and routing permetent out that sometimes sounds strange.
Care must be taken at the entry level because it can quickly go into the red, and the sound deteriorates much.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought secondhand 120 euros in 2006.
I've heard of multi-effects more convincing, but much more expensive. But I have not had to return to their secondhand parameters.
Good value for money.
But not for busy people who never read the instructions ... pardon the big book.
