Re: Alesis Akira, does it do the Bitrman Bit Crusher effect? (WasRe: multi effects unit)
Even from the front panel knobs it will sortta do most of the things the
ModFX series will do.
Via MIDI it'll do a whole lot more.
I haven't really tried the specific thing you mention but it can
definitely do the bit-reduction trash-olla thing on your signal along with
ring-mod and wild filters, etc.
It doesn't have all of the front panel knobs and switches the ModFX have
-- the extra parameters are all availble via MIDI.
But the basic programs are all there (and then some).
A PDF of the manual is downloadable at:
It came out at about the same time as the ModFX and died about the same
I bought one new and another one used sometime later on Ebay.
