Stereo/mono Reverb and delay pedal

Recommended Posts

Roland dep5. Best reverb ever. Should be sub $200. Lots of hands-on controls

It's the one with all the 90's character, all over chicago and detroit records back then. Later models are more boring, "better" but ultimately stale sounding. 

I had a Alesis Midiverb 2 but got rid off it. Shame.

Boss RV-70 rack unit is a bunch of Roland SRV-330 algorithms (minus the flagship ones) in a box with 200 user-programmable presets and minimal onboard editing (four parameters per patch but everything available by sysex if you're brave - nobody has made an editor yet but it's pretty well documented in the manual).

 

If you look around you can get one for under $100 pretty easily and for that price it's pretty nice. Nicer than the Boss reverb pedals I've heard in that price range, and it also has some delays.

Not going to change your life but it's a bit of a sleeper.

Seems like the consensus is always that the Alesis reverbs to watch out for are

 

-Midiverb 1 or 2

-Quadraverb II

-Microverb (1 or 2 but especially 1; different from the Nanoverb)

What's the difference between a quadraverb and a quad 2? The eBay link I sent is just makes as a "quadraverb".

dont think I've found a similar many midiverbs but is the 2 better than the 1 if I find one?

I've never had my hands on either Midiverb but there are people who swear by the 1 and people who swear by the 2.  Those are the ones to get from that series by all accounts.  The 2 is more professional, the 1 is a plastic box with RCA jacks. 

 

There's some discussion of the Midiverbs here:

The basic is because of hardware limitations it can't multiply so all of the algorithms had to be implemented without real multiplication, only bit shifting, and that gave it a really unique sound.
