The Alesis Microverb came out about 1986/7, and blew people away. It's difficult for people new to home recording to fully appreciate the impact these early budget digital reverbs had when released. Early budget digital reverbs were possible due to changing affordable technology and their sound was way better than anything previously available to the home studio at that time. People went nuts for these and almost certainly high hundreds of thousands found their way into home studios all over the world! The Microverb 1 is 1/3rd rack length x 1 unit high... and you could at one time buy a special rack unit to house 3 of the Alesis 'Micro' unit range, side by side.... The humble Microverb features plates, and varieties of predelay and belies it's reverb power... No editing, not even equalizer... but 17 very usable presets... 2 gated reverbs, one longer than the other... 6 small rooms from what sounds like a coal bunker, up to a small hall, 7 large reverbs... from small hall to the final 'infinite' style reverb, with huge decay and size..... ideal for dramatic fx & sci-fi. Apart from the 17 FX algorithms selectable by a dial, there are simply controls for Input, Ouput, & wet/dry, with a small 3 colour LED's for the signal IN indicator -orange for off - green for drive & red for peak. Simple as pie... instant great reverb, not too detailed so it sits in the mix just right where other more expensive reverbs seem intrusive. The perfect first reverb!
