""All I Need" from Isn't Anything by My Bloody Valentine There was a drum machine beat just going like a heartbeat effect. I played an acoustic guitar to it and then it's basically an Alesis Midiverb II, it's the reverse reverb program. If I ever had a secret weapon it's the Alesis and the [Yamaha] SPX 90 and again, it's the reverse reverb program."more
For the "Field Day" lp and tour, Brian played a 1967 Gibson Firebird 12 string, a 1988 Charvel Model 4 with EMG 81 pickups, and a 1986 Gibson SG with EMG 81 pickups. His amps were two Marshall 100-watt heads, four Marshall cabinets with 35-watt Celestion speakers, and a Roland JC-120. He also used an Alesis Midiverb 2, Roland SDE 1000 delay and Samson Stage Series wireless.more
Ease of use
Destroys your tone
No on/off switch
Cannot adjust parameters / Can only use pre-sets
+/- Not the highest quality sounding unit, but can be great if that's what you're going for.
A friend gave me this along with my Roland MKS. I happen to have turned up the midi cabled remote control for this when I helped that guy clean out his home studio, it does not help you to program it.... basically all your editing is controlled by the input, mix and output knobs, the reverbs are super preset... I have heard you can program it from your PC via midi, why bother? It sounds just like the affordable and better-featured nano-verb to my ear... as soon as I figure out where I put this piece of garbage its getting sold. Definitely not in the same league as the quadraverbs I've had, and I do not like those much either.... but at least you can program those suckers if you are diligent about menu diving. It has 1 thing going for it and that's a cool reverse patch. In the cheap seats of old DSP racks I'll take the Yamaha SPX stuff over any alesis product any day of the week. But I sold my SPX90 too...
