Power supply is not included. Skip to main content. An Advance jack on the rear panel accepts a footswitch and is used to scroll through a user preset range of programs. As an effect, multi-tap delays have been around for quite some time now, and it is perhaps surprising that the Quadraverb was not capable of generating such useful multiple repeats in its original form. This means that the fundamental has been shifted to Hz, the 2nd harmonic is now at 1.

Review by Nigel Lord. Playback from the front quadrwverb manual playback would normally be used when you want to manually trigger a recorded sample. I use it as a lo-fi slowdive, ride, verve sound. 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.

The decay time of the five resonators can also be adjusted simultaneously. Previous Article in this issue World Party. The following illustration shows how the output spectrums relate to the input spectrum. In Figure IB, the Pitch Shift amount has been set to Hz, which means that the fundamental and all of its related harmonics are shifted up qhadraverb the same Hz amount.

The sounds are beautiful and we left quickly carried away by everyone. Like the ring modulator, these generate harmonic derivatives of the input signal – but in a much more alesix way. Now I have an PCM 70 rack with the timeline in the fx loop of the axe fx. This can happen in two ways.

In Figure 1C, the Pitch Shift amount is shifted down by Hz, which means that the fundamental and all of its related harmonics are shifted down by the same Hz amount.


I think I listened to a lot of reverb but this one is the quadraverg of the best for vintage sounds.

Multi-fx Processor by Nigel Lord. Searchable archive of old, out-of-print music production magazines. Please note that the effect will only qadraverb heard when both the left and right outputs of the Quadraverb are in use. Short of a nightmare full of teenage acne! In this case, the 2nd harmonic is IKHz cycles per secondor twice the fundamental of Hz, and the 4th harmonic is 2KHz, or 4 times the fundamental.

Similarly, it wouldn’t have been difficult for them to justify adding at least another 50 quid to the price of the Quadraverb to cover all the extra features, and put it down to inflation.

Though there is a precedent for including sampling facilities on an effects unit, the Quadraverb Plus takes it on board in a fairly serious way. Neither, I hope, require any explanation from me.

Full marks, then, to Alesis for acknowledging its potential and including it as an effect among those we are more accustomed to llus on signal processors. The block diagram of this configuration is: Next article in this issue En Routing.

You can adjust the start and end points of complete samples in ten millisecond quadravebr – quadraaverb not of the loop in isolation. Sort by most recent most useful. Do not see any reason why it wouldn’t work now.

The range is from 0 through 99, with 99 being maximum decay time.

User reviews: Alesis QuadraVerb – Audiofanzine

Subsequent playback is possible using manual or audio triggers – the former requiring a jab on the EQ button, the latter a signal sufficient to light the dB LED on the front panel. And it works too. Press two keys and This item is in good condition.

This differs from the second page in that it is possible to send a different mix of Ring Modulator outputs to the Delay and Reverb than the mix that will appear in the mix section of the QuadraVerb Plus.

This can be accomplished by referring to the “Modulating the Parameters” section of the QuadraVerb Users Manual on page The converters are of a different time. Today it seems to have all alwsis disappeared from hi-tech instruments – and represents a criminal omission from the synthesist’s palette. No matter, they’re here now, and the versatility quadragerb their implementation on the Quadraverb Plus is likely to make them a very popular effect indeed.

If the playback mode is set to “Looping” and MIDI Trigger is set to One Shot, the sample will play indefinitely until the mode is changed or the sampling configuration is deselected. This takes place in Continuous mode, where it is also possible to adjust the decay time of each resonator on a scale. The Delay Time is relative to the previous tap, which means that when Tap 1 is delayed, all of the following Taps are delayed by the same amount as well.

The initial resonating frequency of each resonator can be individually adjusted tuned on a chromatic scale. 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 pluss most potential here. WITH THE SORT of “extras” qudraverb been looking at here, it quadravebr have been quite easy for Alesis to justify the release of an entirely new effects unit and left owners of existing Quadraverbs to hawk their quadraveb around the shops looking for a good part-exchange deal or chance their arm in the classified columns – in other words, upgrading the hard way.

While the other modulation effects are pretty good, they aren’t going to blow you away. In One Shot mode, a note-on message from any key of an external device will trigger the sample which will play for its entire length, regardless of when the key is released. Alewis bad for an effects unit. As the mass “digitalisation” of equipment took place, however, this particular form of modulation became less and less common.
