This rack is wonderful, I would recommend always using an FX loop with this, or a Main In. I run this quadraverb PLUS with my strymon timeline into the fx loop of my AXE FX 2, it sounds amazing. through an amp it'd sound good but it'd be way better with an fx loop ( it could be noisy in front of an amp) I use chorus strings sounds, taj mahal, ballad snare, echo from the left/right, velocity-reverb. Resonator, ring mod, and sampling are super cool too. I use it as a lo-fi slowdive, ride, verve sound. Now I have an PCM 70 rack with the timeline in the fx loop of the axe fx. But now with the timeline I put it on feedback loop/send/return, and hook up the quadraverb on just two flange types, one slow metallic one that sync with the delay repeats on the timeline, and a fast rotary one that syncs fast/sound fluttery/trippy. I also use the sampling and then use my delay loop as well for some really layered tones. the sample is quick so you can make a cool loop that repeats, and then the timeline make more advanced loops over it. then I have my PCM 70 for all the quality reverb/delay sounds. The lexicon is more cocteau twins u2 high fidelity, Pink Floyd from that era. The alesis is more lo fi, the verbs/delays are great, but ultimately, it is not my main go to anymore. But it is a good option in the feedback loop, and as a secondary lo fi unit.
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...
Quadraverb + for reverbs and delays, it's digital, plugged into the effect of my amp or a mixer loop.
It was a bit of what was best for the public 20 years ago, plus it's easy enough to find one on Ebay. Everything is editable as racks that time, but the older software and it is increasingly difficult to find ... MIDI will eventually disappear from our studios ...
First thing to make the taste of the day to upgrade the quadra quadra +, it costs 20 € on Ebay and very easy to do.
The upgrade is done by sysex and MIDI, must find the right software, I went through SyxlibEd worked after my second test.
I wanted a Quadraverb because I was quite a fan of guitarists and singers who used Laureate 90s. If I have one example would be Chris Isaak Wicked Games. But hey still the same concerns for acute laziness program and use it effectively, for a while I looked at the presets TVET Charly Hall. So I contacted him and he quickly told me to do the upgrade at a cost of € 60.
You will say it is expensive for presets ... I will tell you that once installed sounds are absolutely beautiful, musical and therefore usable immediately. In addition, to provide simple reverbs and delays great it magnifies your amp, this afternoon I had the impression of playing on an old Top Boost and pro-reverb sixties quite breathtaking. I had two amps times and I assure you it is stunning how simple presets can change the way you play ... Of course, you must love the fifties and sixties side sounds. Of the 90 presets, there is only one that frankly disappointed me is the one on acoustic guitar that sounds like the worst stuff of the 80s, this is the only one that sounds wrong. But it can also have its charm??
So at the moment I do not use the effects on the guitar but I intend to do experiments on vocals, bass and synth because it is very musical and let the plug-ins because no one is at the height of this machine and reconfigured.
For 24h and update I played all day on, we do not easily pass from one preset to another, we tend to stay on. I think I listened to a lot of reverb but this one is the best of the best for vintage sounds. The sounds are beautiful and we left quickly carried away by everyone. For 60 € you the case of the century compared plugs and other machines.
I leave you the IP address because it is not the Quadraverb but a whole lot of machines like the ZOOM 7008, I think. https://charliehall.proboards.com
If you want a very good reverb, this may be the solution.
I'm on a cloud ...

Fr@ggel's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- A device that can generate up to 4 effects simultaneously (in stereo or mono).
- Bandwidth 20 Hz to 20 kHz
- 85 dB Dynamic
- Reverb, Delay, Pitch, Equalizer and Change
- Full MIDI compatibility
Then there is a different kettle of fish!
We must go select a program, then an effect or parameter (~ 12), change the setting and repeat for the other.
I do not think it's super convenient, I prefer the buttons to turn (what the pots), as we see it (or means) immediately change.
The 90 factory presets are not all operation of the technology (much alike).
Personally I use only two or three programs.
Once we escaped with the settings can be appreciated the quality of the material. Used mainly for effects on the voices, I'm pretty happy.
This is an effect that date but is pretty robust.
The thing wrong is its power by transformer ... and casually, he makes his weight. With an integrated power supply, it would be a treat.
