The NanoVerb 2 from Alesis is a compact, user-friendly preset processor featuring reverb, delay, chorus, and other time based effects, with all effects easily accessible using the front-facing controls. Updated, natural-sounding reverbs (over the original NanoVerb) comprise half of the effects selection. Users can choose from lush and expansive hall, plate, spring or tape reverbs.

The unit is also packed with other time based effects for use with vocals, guitar, keyboard, or whatever else is connected to the processor. True stereo delay, chorus, tremolo, flange and rotary speaker effects are all within easy reach, with the 16 program settings and 256 presets making it an essential signal processor.

52-bit internal DSP resolution delivers excellent sonic quality, suitable for use in any effects application, from guitar playing to studio recording. Other controls include a mix knob for adjusting how much effect is on the signal (from clean to saturated), and input and output knobs for setting correct levels.

A bi-color LED shows signal present and if it's clipping while a bypass input on the back allows for attaching an optional footswitch for live control during performance or recording. With a broad range of applicable uses, NanoVerb 2 is the perfect addition to any studio or live set up. Plus, it fits into just about any budget.

            I was pretty excited to try out this relatively inexpensive processor and I've been more than satisfied with its performance and output. I use this in a simple coffee shop type setup and the quality of the effects have been applauded by many musicians and singers.

                Does what is says at a great price--Presets work for an acoustic live guitarist
                Power source often needs to be jiggled

                I use the NanoVerb 2 with my Tascam DP-02. It's a low cost way to add a little reverb, delay or modulation to tracks. You cant tweak the effect parameters and it is not programable but it has many usable presents for under [$].

                Comments about Alesis NanoVerb 2 - Digital Effects Processor:

                I purchased this unit for our church sound system to add simple effects for music or drama.

                It has a limited number of effects (but all that we would need). While the quality of the processing is not professional-recording caliber, it should be sufficient for a mid-sized church's youth skit.

                This unit performs the functions as advertised; connected correctly and quickly to the sound system; and comes with good, basic directions.

                The only thing I noticed with sound quality is that there is quite a bit of noticable 'white noise' or 'whoosh' in the processed sound. For example, when speaking into a microphone routed through the processor with an echo setting, I heard the echo (as designed) and then could hear the processing of the 'silence' that followed the last echo of the spoken word as 'noise' -- and then the processing would be complete and I could hear the 'whoosh' abruptly end and then the true silence of no signal was heard -- like a switch shutting off the noise -- (like a noise gate in a channel strip set a little too light).

                While I don't have recent experience with any other outboard processors (most of my professional work is DAW-based, except when doing house sound at church), I have to assume that a more expensive unit would not have such noticable shifts from processed silence to true silence.

                But as I said in the headline, it does what it says it will do and for a very affordable price. If you're looking for a way to add effects for a school or small church sound system or a garage band, this is a very inexpensive way to experiment with effects for voice and music.

                So, not surprisingly, if you are doing professional stage or recording work, I recommend spending a bit more money in this department. (But you probably already knew that).
