Eventide H9 Multi-Effects Pedal

The Eventide H9 is the future of effects pedals. Easily upload sound algorithms and tweak them via your iOS/Android device for unlimited tonal possibilities.
The Eventide H9 Multi-Effects Pedal is a powerful, expandable, all-in-one effects processor. It comes fully equipped with nine effects taken from Eventide's TimeFactor ModFactor, PitchFactor and Space pedals, and also includes UltraTap -- a delay algorithm exclusive to the H9. It's like an all-in-one Eventide stompbox emulator. Additional expansions can be uploaded, and a coupon for one more free algorithm is included with your purchase.

Expandable Algorithms: The Ever-Changing Multieffects Pedal

Most digital pedals include factory presets with the ability to edit and save your own programs. With the H9, Eventide ushers stompboxes into the modern age with expandable algorithms and an app store from which you can purchase upgrades and other expansions for your H9. More than just a patch editor, the H9 supports modular architecture and can be upgraded with not only new patches, but new algorithms which add completely new effect types to your arsenal.

iOS, Android, Mac, and PC Integration

Input on the H9 is simplified thank to its single, large rotary encoder. But you can't always be bending over your stompbox tweaking the settings -- that's why Eventide offers wireless connectivity with iOS devices. Just install the free H9 Control app on your iOS or Android device and sync with the H9 via Bluetooth. The software provides additional knobs and controls which are typically hidden in submenus, giving you direct access to all of the H9's features right at your fingertips -- and read more without all the back pain too. If iOS isn't your style, the H9 Control software also functions on Mac or PC via USB.

"The Future of Pedals???"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This thing is amazing! I use this primarily to effect synthesizers. If you are a keyboardist you will be very very happy to have this little guy sitting up on top of whatever it is you're playing. Very clean and warm, hardly any digital 'zippering' going on. This pedal is a dream. The harmonizer and reverb algorithms are why I bought it, but all the others hold their own. I use this with a Moog MF104m and I would say even the delay algorithms could stand up to it's analog counterparts. Despite the simplicity of design, this pedal has some optimizations for performance, including the 'hot knob' function, expression pedal input, and the ability to program your effects chain song-by-song via midi. In the recording studio... this pedal has amazed everyone who has heard it. Construction is all-metal and top notch quality. Built to last. My only issue has been registering my pedal using the H9Control program. I was not able to connect to the Eventide server and as such, was not able to reg my pedal. Without registration and an internet connection, you will not be able to gain access to your H9 Using the convenient GUI software.
