VERDICT


THE MULTIVERB III'S closest competition currently takes the form of Alesis' Quadraverb - both are stereo multi-fx units offering four simultaneous processes and real-time MIDI parameter control. Where the Quadraverb scores is in the sophistication of its equaliser section - three-, five- or 11-band graphic over the Multiverb's high-frequency roll-off - and in its price. Where the Quadraverb retails at £449, the ART unit weighs in around £90 heavier.

What you get on the Multiverb for your extra cash is a pitch transposer that will shift an octave either way instead of around a meagre half semitone, and a sampler. The sampler isn't going to give a dedicated sampler any competition, but it's there if you need it, and the ability to "sample and shift" a sound into your mix could be a considerable headache solver. The pitch shifter too could become indispensable - apart from pulling vocal harmonies out of thin air you could find yourself using it for anything from correction of an out-of-tune instrument to helping time-correct drum loops.

Unreservedly a hit.
