Eventide is now shipping its newest addition to its stompbox line, the H9 Harmonizer.
The H9 delivers Eventide’s acclaimed sound and can run all of Eventide’s stompbox effects. It features a simple, one-knob user interface and also connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to iPods, iPhones and iPads for creating and managing presets, live control and in-app algorithm purchases.
“The H9 is designed to pack all that you need by way of delay, modulation, pitch, and reverb effects, ninety-nine factory presets, and an integrated tuner, all in a small footprint,” says Ray Maxwell, VP sales and marketing for Eventide. “We’ve also created a feature-rich remote control app, H9 Control, for controlling the H9 from an iPhone or iPad, wirelessly via Bluetooth.
“As always, our prime directive is to deliver the Eventide sound that our users have come to rely on. Never before has that sound been packed into such a compact package,” he adds.
The H9 includes a set of the most popular algorithms taken from Eventide’s stompboxes: Liquid Chorus, Organic Chorus, Shimmer Chorus, Classic Chorus, Phase XO Chorus, Bias Tremolo, and Opto Tremolo from ModFactor; H910, H949, and Crystals from PitchFactor; Tape Echo and Vintage Delay from TimeFactor; and Hall and Shimmer from Space. The H9 also includes the first in a series of new algorithms, UltraTap Delay.
All of Eventide’s stompbox algorithms and their associated presets are available for audition and in-app purchase.
While the H9 is fully controllable via its front panel, a free iOS app, H9 Control (http://bit.ly/14q3Oee ), can be downloaded to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch for live real time parameter manipulation, creating and managing presets, and changing system settings wirelessly via Bluetooth. An OS X editor/librarian app is also included.
The H9 features stereo audio I/O, MIDI I/O and Expression Pedal or Auxiliary Switch inputs.
