Exercise caution when examining the output of comparator U The 16 bytes are in the same format as a single program of a complete memory dump, shown above.

F filtered or bypassed in some units by the large torroid and C A The arrowhead symbol on a lightning flash inside a triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of un-insulated “dangerous voltage” within the enclosed product which may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.

And despite its inherent limitations the delay section acquits itself too – even below the ms mark, you can coax enough slapback echo and ADT effects out of it to make it earn its keep. The product under service may akesis the use of a A internal battery. Faulty transistor Q2, Q3.

The chart on the following page was created in an effort to relieve the beleaguered technician from having to “discover” some of the common faults we have seen. You shall not make any warranties or guarantees with respect to the products of Alesis or the use thereof on behalf of Alesis or in your own name.

The added capabilities of an 80C31 micro controller allow for user manipulation and storage of algorithm parameters, as well as effects such as chorus, and flange, that require real-time manipulation of algorithms. Quick movements, excessive force or uneven surfaces may overturn the combination which may damage the product and rack combination.

The first of the two reverb parameters, Reverb Algorithm, offers you a choice of 20 different reverb types from a list which includes halls, chambers, rooms, plates, reverse and gated effects.

Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer’s instruction. It achieves this status by virtue of being programmable – midivrrb the Midiverb II is not – but having fewer effects and a slightly less impressive spec than the Quadraverb. At this point Q is low. Faulty analog switch U This can help prevent many unhappy returns.

Keep the operating instructions and safety suggestions for reference in the future. Being designed primarily for use in studio racks, the Midiverb III is a 1U-high, 19″ rack unit with all controls situated on the front panel. The product should only be aless as the manufacturer recommends.

This buss multiplexes between low order addresses 1st 8 bitsand data. Timing is so critical throughout this circuit that parts that are even slightly out of spec will cause failures. These values are then mathematically manipulated, and stored at various locations in a memory “loop” for eventual playback.

After passing through low pass anti aliasing filters 2 op amps of U3, Misc. There are three states of operation. Whatever the reason, the user as is so often the case with mass-market equipmenthas come out on top, and with the current crop of machines offering three or four simultaneous bit stereo effects at about the same price you’d have paid for a unit with three or four different 8-bit reverb patches a few years ago, there seems little for us to complain about. The process again begins as a normal write to memory.

Some important control signals are outlined below. One is made by Fujitsu, the other by AMI. Please include your email address if you want to be contacted regarding your note. OaaaaaaaB first byte bits OOOOOObB second byte bit 7 in bit 0 The first transmitted bytes actual bytes consist of the programseach containing 16 bytes.

The overall decay of each of these effects can be adjusted using the second of the two available parameters, Decay Time. The six parameters available for control are reverb decay time, reverb level, delay time, delay level, delay regeneration feedback and chorus speed – giving a total of 48 routing options together with control of modulation amplitude by either a positive or negative amount. The product under service may employ the use of a replaceable fuse.


Alesis shall have the right to refuse to sell or otherwise transfer repair parts or materials to you in its sole discretion. Familiarity with the appearance of this signal on a scope, will greatly facilitate troubleshooting audio problems. The summed stereo signal is sent to the anti-aliasing filter consisting of most of U4, and associated resistors and capacitors.

A signal diode at pin 10 limits the incoming signal to 5V, preventing damage to the analog switch U6. The circuitry will vary depending on which manufacturers ASIC is used. Whether you decide to do it this way depends very much on what it is you need to input, but I found myself using the keypad more and more after getting impatient waiting for the increment button to step from program 6 to program I’d have thought they might be tempted to move away from the kind of name which suggests these are simply reverb units.

When describing the Midiverb III as being stereo as I did earlierI may have given the impression that this applied to the delay section too, which it doesn’t. This signal is injected into the signal path at U4 pin Tapping on the crystal can sometimes reveal this.

The DAC output is an extremely important test point. All audio inputs are high impedance for optimum signal matching to external gear, and this may include a directly connected microphone if you’re prepared to put up with a little extra noise. Combined, these two parameters provide a surprisingly wide range of reverb effects, and unlike some units I’ve used, the range is fairly consistent, so there is less chance of defaulting to one or two tried and trusted settings each time you switch on.

If the product is not used for any significant period of time, the product’s AC power supply cord should be unplugged from the AC outlet.
