alesis Q2 and Roland DEP5

After reading the roland verb thread I began thinking about these two that I haven't used since I got into ptools. What do you guys think they are good for?? I kinda like the choruses on the roland sometimes.

Also I have a BOSS SE50 that I kinda love on keyboards for chorus etc... maybe a litle delay

What do you think?

I don't know about the Q2 but the DEP5 is like an SRV2000 and is good on drums or for other things that aren't as prominant in the mix. Maybe keys or BGV's. I have an SE50 that I hardly use anymore. Some of the special muti-effects in there are great. I think the last thing I used it for was a spare delay on mix when I ran out of regular stuff. For a long time it was my favorite drum reverb and sometimes the gated program on there is still perfect for somethings. I should use mine more often but I've become less of an effects junky over the last two years.

the Q2 ****ing ROCKS. i want more of them. if you program patches yourself, its just ******** cool. some of the presets can be cool as well.

if anyone has a Q2 and hates it, SEND IT TO ME!!!!

Ok, but what makes it cool? Is it like hi-fi cool? Realistic cool? Sci-fi cool? I've never been too impressed with the original Quadraverb.

i dunno... just the **** you can do with it. sometimes i wish it had more DSP because some of the things i think up in my head i run out of DSP before i can finish the routing/effect blocks. its great for SFX kinda stuff. its not something you reach for for like a main verb. they shoulda called it the Quadrafex2.

i just find it really easy to get around and make patches in. plus i like that it has lightpipe i/o. i have been kinda curious if i could daisy chain 4 of them together and assign 1]1/2 2]3/4 3]5/6 4]7/8 to fill all 8 channels on a single lightpipe.

i like the tap tempo feature on it for setting delay times within patches. i like the way you can route effects into feedback patterns for sound destruction.

I have a Midiverb 4 that I hardly ever use anymore. When it does get used it's always delay and usually for the tap tempo. As a dedicated delay it's not too bad. I mixed an album at another studio in Febuary and I wanted a simple stereo delay for a guitar fill and I couldn't find one in their H3000, Yomama stuff (they had a few different SPX's) and when I asked them to hook up their Midiverb 4 I got the strangest looks. Whatever. It works.
