moosers's review (Ibanez - UE-405)

By moosers, 14/04/2010
The Ibanez UE-405 is a multi-effects processor in the form of a rack mountable piece of outboard gear. Since I've only used this in a professional studio where it was already racked up and ready for use, I don't know what types of connections it has in the back. It was hooked up to a patch bay, so when I wanted to use it I would just make the connections there. It does however have 1/4" connections in the front for both an input and two outputs. The UE-405 will take up two spaces in a traditional rack casing.


Using the Ibanez UE-405 isn't hard whatsoever. All of the different effects are broken up into different sections to work in. The effects/sections found on the UE-405 include a compressor/limiter, stereo chorus, a parametric EQ, and analog delay. While I've played around with the compressor and the equalizer, I've used the UE-405 mostly for it's chorus and analog delay. Each effect/section has it's own array of parameters to work with. I don't believe that a manual is necessary, but I haven't seen one so I can't really comment on it.


For a multi-effects processor, the Ibanez UE-405 has a very good sound. Like I said earlier, I've primarily used this in the recording studio for it's chorus and analog delay sounds, but the compressor and equalizer definitely have some worth as well. Both the chorus and the analog delay share a similar round quality to them that I enjoy a good deal. I've used the chorus on electric guitar and keyboards, while I've used the analog delay for vocals and a Fender Rhodes. The compressor and equalizer are perfect to have around when you're using the other effects and want to fine tune your sound within the same box, but I don't think that I would necessarily use them on their own.


There definitely aren't too many Ibanez UE-405's out there today for whatever reason. While I generally like to get my modulation effects inside the box if I didn't already get them at the source, the UE-405 provides an option both after the fact or during tracking if you so choose. It's great to have a few high quality effects in one spot, as I find myself experimenting with them where I might not normally do so with a plug-in or a single effect processor. I can't say what sort of price the UE-405 would command, but if you can find one at a reasonable price when compared to other multi-effects processors like this one, I'd say the UE-405 is definitely a piece of gear worth considering.

yvgot's review (Ibanez - UE-400 Overdrive Version)

By yvgot, 24/04/2006
All old 80's Ibanez pedals herein in this large and heavy rack + pdalier.par against that of the picture is quite ugly, and lacks the support for the rack .. ours is more beautiful. (Say, mr web master, you can change the picture?) A scratch of my friends just bought this beast, (quite expensive, for that matter!) And oh surprise ... we have tried this w-end ..


A prsence and its not possible, especially on a big lamps. (Old twin reverb and (or) head JCM900). Every effect is super easy argler is 10 times better than all these critters ultra complicated numriques are, you will lose the feeling when you want to change the parameters a single dixime .. not to mention all your beautiful settings you can not find on scne but taient so beautiful to local rpt! this old ibanez is very effective .. It seems he had the time his brother ue 405, with effects more "subtle" introuvable.ou become expensive (2 to 300 euros)


Only inconvnient: he blows a few knobs and crachouillent. but a little disassembly + cleaning will make it good. (note the large cable + connection made between the rack and pdalier) I also recognized his inimitable and beautiful of all tube screamer from 83 1ST. (Yes, I am drummer, but I also know the correct sounds of scratching!) Only permits the rack pense.on I can also change the order of chaining effects .. depending on the mood of the DSIR or scratch! the compressor, its clear or drooling is a real massacre .. even with an old copy jim harley lespaul pourrave lying for ages in local, one has to ring Arussi SERIOUS!. (after removing the dusts and changing three strings.)


The sustain seems infinite, but still pretty pushing the SETTING THE gain and volume made a high note, you can ask the guitar (Ibanez RGX) a foam drink, come back, the note is still the resume .. guitar and turn down the volume, otherwise your hp explode .. (So ​​mfiance). delay put him a boss or ibanez (a pedal enough, no rack) or a wah ibanez WH10 jimi dunlop, vox, and you are the KING OF ITS BIG .. its the REAL .. Moreover, the scratch in question resell its two digital monsters numriques has 300 pRSET (Peset I did not say, but rather 400 euros) ... good short (only 5 or 6 REALLY use it) to to adopt its new bebte rtro ... but I know .. can be in three months he will be found again a novelty old!. but it is true that ue400 is masterful.

Tube screamer
Chorus / Flanger
Outer loop

Fully Analog
The circuits are halfway between 9 and sries 8xx, most research.
2u rack with pdalier ddi


Trs simple matrix using a system that lets you choose the odre effects.
Each module is selected at the bottom and a master switch can bypass the effects.
No need to book.


Total class. The effect is warm and alive. What the pure analog ...
Excellent in the studio.
Ditto on scne.


I love her so much that I have 3 ...
Is not everything but for the classical effects is a must.

I bury (Ibanez - UE-400 Overdrive Version)

By pierre LAB, 12/06/2012
This is the version of the 80s, I confess that I have since that time (HArg old!) compressieur flanger, stereo chorus, phaser,

The stereo chorus is, provided we have enough to make the stereo ...

but mostly I use the compressor, truly scalable


it works has the instinct, even for leeks that I am

9, 'cause it's a vintage ...


Yes, that is, for vintage sounds, sound or delusions (when open z'etes barred beef and it plays itself ...)

Ha I'm a bass player, I know, it is basically a guitar effect, but not that! trying the compressor include ...

I have not tried other instruments, not even the Jew's harp ...


this is the first among my good stuff, in 80 ", with an aria and an SB900 ampeg ... fire!

the aria is a bit stored, sometimes I play for the fingers to kill me (she has charm)

the ampeg, I have more since long time

But the rack Ibanez has not left me, and not letting up ...

I will couple it with a ptetre octaver markbass, it can do

Uh, that choice if I do it again? any question ...
