This jack accepts any standard connection of any in8trunr ent or mk: To a IceytxMird, drum machine, guitar, or microphone effected signal to dry signal on the mixer by using the individual input channel faders dry signal and the stereo effects returns effected signal from MV II.

If you are using an instrument with stereo outputs keytdoard, daim machine, etc. If you are using an instrument with a mono output guitar, mic, keyt pard. They do make a difference. Check with your Alesis dealer. Here’s a setup procedure that you should follow closely: Check the sectton titled Connectton s for the proper method of installatkyi with your system.

You can adjust the mix to your own taste after you have completed the remainder of an effect fuNoff fun on this setup procedure. When connected to a mixing board, set the MIX control to full on all effect.

You can mix the relative dry and effected signal with the individual input channels and the stereo effects receives on board the mixer: Make sure you are sending a strong, clear signal to the unit.

You might have to adjust other levels in your system at this time. For example, if you are connected to a mixer you will need to adjust the effects send s and receive s to the proper level, then set the master stereo output level of the mixer accordingly If you are connected to an instrument amplifier, you should adjust its volume control to the desired level. Refer to the owner’s manual of your mixer or instrument amp if necessary. You should hear very little, if any, background noise.

If you do hear much noise you should check your source to make sure you have a strong, clear output signal. Then check the other level controls in your system again. Adjust them accordingly and watch those LEDs. This is the tricky part but will be well worth the effort. These levels will vary depending on the actual equipment used, but should fail somewhere in the shaded areas. Use this as a reference guide and starting point.


You should find a combinatbn of level settings that will provide an amazingly noise free over- all sound. When first powered up or following manipulation of any from panel buttons, the system automatically reverts to this nrade: Indicating man- ual Program change status. Press any numbefed button from to 9. The lower right segment of the two digit LED display will blink for approximately 4 seconds, prompting you to enter a second numt er.

In general, smaller sounding spaces with smoother articulation of the reverb decay will provide the proper range of ambience for full dnim kits and rhythm section instrumenta The larger spaces wHI lend themselves readily to vocals and lead instruments. But since chang- ing programs is 80 easy; deciding on the correct sound should be based on plenty of experimentation and your own taste.

Each program varies in tonal characteristics and decay time. Astun- ning modem studio effect fCNrmerty available only by laboriously flipping areei of reconjed tape over, playing It backwards and crossing your fingers.

They are named Bkxxn and have an envefc pe that rises bkxxns to a rk: Triggering is indksated the instant the green LED turns from off to oa Triggered flanges lend themselves most effectively to instmments with a sharp leading edge to their attack, like cymbal crashes or continuous percussive playing from drums or rhythm instruments electric rhythm guitar included.

Ail the flange programs vary in the depth and speed of the flanging effect In additkm most of these pro- grams include some degree of automatic stereo panning that varies in the speed and wklth of the pan effect This panning can be very dramatic and greatly enhances the creative possibilities of MIDIVERB irs flange programa Programs Two stereogenerator programs create stereosignalsfroma mono source-great for that wkto keyboard sound when you don’t want to use reverb or chorua The last three programs are regenerated echoes that vary in decay time and the extent of their traifing echoes -and they are astonishingly deaa Program Convenient defeat of the effects signal through front panel buttons or through MlDLThis wortcs independently of the rear panel defeat jack.

This completes the program change. I The programs are organized in banks.

Pressing microferb first number in a bank enters that group of pro- grams. The second number entered will call the specific program in that group. Press another number through 9.


You wilt see the num- ber 65 in the two digit LED display. See the sec- tion titled The Programs for a complete listing of the banks and their programs. This will become the current program italian will now be assignable to the MIDI patch number you just entered.

But there’s zlesis more step. This completes the program assign. You can now change any of the 32 assignable patches by pressing any patch number 01 from a controlling MIDI instrument. Sending MIDI patch number will call up the defeat program.

See your Alesis dealer. Simply assign the program of your choice to MIDI patch number When you turn on the unit the program assigned to MIDI patch 01 will auto- matically be activated. This delay and pitch modulation is continu- ously varied by a lew frequency oscillator The effect creates changes over time in the frequency content of the manuaoe signal.

With triggered flanging this continuous variation is intemjpted: Instruments with a snrxxith, continuous decay such as key- boards or lightly strummed guitar might retrigger ttie flange during the sustain portkxi of their sound. The thumping sound is caused by volume fluctuations in the sustain portion of the sound that are causing the triggering action to reoccur.

The triggering is normal but the thumping sounds might be unde- sirable. This resetting action momentarily intentipts the delayed signal during the reset and the thump- ing popping sound might appear.

ED turns from off to on in Programs 50, With explosive sounds like drums and percus- sion or heavy pounding electric guitar that have very sharp attacks and quick decays, the trig- gering action occurs every time the signal hits the input of MIDIVERB II. Because the envelope of such instalments is so short there will jtaliano no sus- tained signal present to be intemjpted by the trig- gering action at the onset of the next input signal.

Because when applied to the right input signal the effect is fantastic! Not necessarily More subtle flanges can be created simply by changing the mix ratio. Use your own judgment and taste.

But please become familiar with the full depth and richness of each program. The speed and width of this panning effect is different for each program. By adjusting the mix control you can vary the amount of perceived flanging and panning to suit your needs.
