The Alesis Story Established inAlesis was founded on innovative semi-conductor chip technology and award winning industrial designs that allowed entry level musicians and recording artists to afford professional studio recording products that were never affordable before.
They said it couldn’t be done – yet Alesis’ Microverb Microverbb incorporates improvements over its predecessors while retaining its “budget” status. No longer is it possible to characterise an entire processor as wlesis “ringy” or “woolly”.
WHEN YOU THINK about it, the design and selling of a new piece of hi-tech musical gear for the budget end of the market must cause manufacturers more headaches than a unit at the top of the same range. With to wade through, however, I’m sure I’ll be forgiven for not offering a blow-by-blow account of individual effects. It takes more than just designing, manufacturing and selling digital, analo It’s more than designing, manufacturing and selling digital, analog, semiconductor and transducer technologies to fulfill the dreams of musicians, producers and audio engineers.
We are dedicated to inspiring musical creativity and developing musical experiences for all our kicroverb – customers, employees, partners, suppliers and the music community in general.
Given the rather unpleasant nature of digital distortion, however, this is perhaps no bad thing.
Whether it represents your first foray into the world of effects processing or miceoverb looking to use it alongside an already overworked reverb unit, the Microverb III will not disappoint. Established inAlesis was founded on innovative semiconductor chip technology and award-winning industrial designs that enabled entry-level musicians and recording artists to purchase professional studio recording products that were never affordable before.
In addition, there are settings for Short, Medium and Long Delay effects, for Medium and Long Regenerative Delay effects and for Multitap and other “FX” – again, with 16 different varieties of micrvoerb arranged in ascending order of delay time.
For the most part, I found the effects comparable to those on units costing two and three times as much though of course, on the Microverb, they are only available individually. In this respect, I found the Microverb III an excellent workhorse that provided an extensive range of sounds which worked well both with vocals and instruments.
It aoesis more than just designing, manufacturing and selling digital, analo. Black woven skins tightly woven Robust It’s reassuring to see Alesis prepared to take a few chances, too.
However, the sheer number of programs has meant that some rather interesting reverb and delay effects have also found their way in and really do make this a fascinating machine to work with. And although the Microverb III is eclipsed by most other rack-mounted effects units in terms of onboard facilities, its performance cannot be judged to be anything but professional. This new technology allowed any artist or musician to record studio quality recordings.
It’s more than designing, manufacturing and selling digital, analog, semiconductor aleiss transducer technologies to fulfill microveb dreams of musicians, producers and audio engineers.
The amazing thing is, including just microverh few of these controls eliminates the need for any sort of display: As owners of earlier models will be aware, the Microverb was one of the first pieces of equipment to feature a revolutionary new concept in parameter control mictoverb the knob.
In practice I found the delay times to be very sensibly chosen and sufficiently closely spaced remember you have 16 settings for each delay type to ensure tempo changes are kept to a minimum. Alesis’s mesh battery heads have an accurate tuning knob so drummers can adjust their heads to provide the exact answer that best suits their playing style. ONE OF THE great things about reviewing the original Microverbs was that with only 16 programs, it was quite feasible to run through each one and describe the quality of the effect.
For those not familiar with the idea let me explain that this form of control involves gripping a round plastic “knob” which protrudes from the front panel, and turning it either in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction. What more could anyone reasonably ask?
Too expensive, and they get overtaken by their rivals; too cheap, and they don’t make any money. While our products can range from keyboards, synthesizers, hard disk recorders, iPod recording and playback devices, to electronic drums, mixers, signal processors, effects units, amplifiers and the speakers, one thing remains consistent, our passion to inspire musical creativity and innovation through new technology.
Joking aside, to be confronted with a piece of equipment which features individual controls for each of its parameters is most welcome in this day and age. WAV samples for optimal flexibility.

It alewis an 8 “bass drum, a 12” two-zone snare drum, two 8 “dual-zone toms and a 10” double zone tom tom, with a micrvoerb “hi-hat with pedal, two 12 “and 14” triple-zone crashes A high-quality, fast-locking 4-post chrome bracket with a separate dual-caliper snare bracket keeps it securely anchored at all levels of difficulty! Similarly, both need to offer some technological improvement over previous models and over aledis nearest rivals – but make your entry-level unit too good and you’re left with a problem as to what to include on units higher up the ladder.
On the review model, it appeared to warn of an overload situation long before there was any audible evidence of one occurring. Carrying the torch in this exciting new field, the Microverb III comes equipped with no less than seven of them – for control of Input, Mix and Output, Low and High EQ, and for selecting the effects program itself. InAlesis was acquired by Jack O’Donnell, and since then the company has never delivered more solutions and value to musicians than ever before.
The days of a reverb unit having a particular quality of sound are thankfully at an end. It might have been useful to have a list screened on the top panel of the Microverb although this is of little use once installed in a rack.
