These patches will load into a QV or QV+. I cannot vouch for the
memory architecture of the QV GT or the Q2, so I don't know if they
will work there. Try them and let me know!
WARNING from Karl Schmidt: There is a problem with the Quadraverb
series MIDI system exclusive data communications which in very rare
cases, can cause the Quadraverb to lock up if there are communication
problems. Switching the Quadraverb off and on will not fix the
problem. The only way to resolve the problem is to press the program
and bypass buttons down as the Quadraverb is turned on, and to hold
them down until the unit displays the edit buffer patch. This will
initialize all programs and settings to their factory defaults.
Each of these patches is stored in its 155-byte SysEx format. They
are all set up to load into the EDIT BUFFER, and thus will not
overwrite your programs unless you STORE them. They should be
loadable using any generic system exclusive program.
- Pete Lyall: some original guitar patches.
- qv90 - Always with me.
This was inspired by Joe Satriani's song "Always with me,
Always with you" from the 'Surfing with the Alien' LP.
Best if fed by a highly saturated bitey distortion.
- qv91 - Fat Rich Funk.
Put your amp in a clean channel with lots of high and low EQ (dip the
midrange), put your stratocaster in the neck (or combined neck & middle)
pickup position, and funk out.
- qv92 - Always2.
A sweeter variation on QV90. I use this a lot.
- qv93 - FatCity Flange.
An eccentric wide flanging sound. Probably best for distorted guitar.
- qv94 - Tasteful Detune.
Really widens the guitar out and gives it personality. Clean or
- qv95 - PINGPONG DELAY.
A variation on the basic pingpong delay. Good for slow, sultry solos.
- qv96 - Crunch Rhythm.
Just like it says. Feed it a bright distortion, and come out with
something between a Rockman and a Marshall.
- David Grant: two general-purpose drum patches.
Each of these files is 14708 bytes, and contains 100 patches.
They are stored in SysEx format, ready for loading.
Note! They will overwrite your QV memory.
- David Haubensack: Four different SysEx banks
- Pete Lyall: Two patch banks that are bundled with the QV patch
Pete Lyall posted a list of the names of the
100 factory preset patches
for the Alesis MIDIverb III.
Note that there are tools
available for manipulating QV patches.
