Re: MIDI Tempo based effect processor?

Although I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it,
Alesis is coming out with a single space rack unit
called AKIRA. I think it's supposed to sell for
around $250. I'm wondering if it's a rack version of
their INEKO processor. If so, it would have filter &
vocoder effects as well as delay & reverb.


The only other things I can think of are the Eventide
Eclipse, a used Korg AM8000R (don't know if it does
vocoder), maybe the Lexicon MPX-1 (again, vocoder??).

Which Roland device were you considering?
