Is there a really good Alesis Midiverb 2 emulation as a plugin?

I know this is an old thread, but I desperately searched for a good Alesis Nanoverb (v1) replacement. I loved the "Chorus Room 1" and "Nonlinear" preset and every Reverb I tried, nothing came close. So thanks to this thread and with a bit of research I made a few Impulse Responses from the original hardware unit.
To my ears they are indistinguishable when I load the IR's to Reaverb (Reaper). Maybe in theory this should not work as devkerr explained, but in practice I am very happy with the results.
Are you gonna share them or sell them?

On the one hand, the MIDIVerb II was never "that iconic sound of the 1980's"--if any reverb was, it was arguably the Lexicon 224 or 480L. (Although an argument could be made that the MIDIVerb II was "that iconic [reverb] sound of garage bands in the 1980s".) :wink:
I doubt the context here is the 80s - but more the 90s and the explosion of diY electronic music - where no one really had lexicon.

The new Korneff reverb has Midiverb II, but only the reverb presets.

Fair enough. But I was quoting what the developer of It Might Get Loud 1989 said about the product: that it was "that iconic sound of the 1980s". Considering it came out near the end of the decade, I'd agree that it was more the sound of the "'90s DIY electronic music".
