WNAMM02: Smaller than a Nanoverb, the PicoVerb!

A really, really small fx box      19/01/02

Buying Choices
Alesis was showing their new PicoVerb, a preset reverb box even smaller than the Nanoverb. The PicoVerb is 1/4 rack space, and features 24 bit AD/DA converters, as well as 28 bit internal processing. It has stereo analog unbalanced inputs and outputs, no digital in/out, and the sampling rate of the converters is 48k.

Effects include: Halls, room, plates, chorus, flange, delay, and lezlie. Alesis had it under glass, so I couldn't hear it. Not sure when it will be released either, sorry. All I can say is that this is the smallest fx processor I've ever seen! Would be nice for gigging, definitely easy to toss this into a gig bag (or even pocket). As a side note, the Sonic State crew (myself, Andy, Dave, and Nick) had the pleasure of meeting Mike Peake, who works at Alesis and is a frequent poster here at Sonic State. Mike is involved with the development of synths at Alesis, not the FX boxes, as he made clear on several occasions. Keep up the great work, Mike!
