In this interview, Todd states he uses an Eventide harmonizer: "Who makes your equipment? The Harmonizer is an Eventide. The flanger is an Electro-Harmonix Electric Mistress, and I'm using Tapco graphic equalizers, and E-mu synthesizer modules. The preamp is part of the E-mu setup. It triggers the synthesizer modules--the voltage-controlled filters, amplifiers, and so on."more
The signal goes from the Parker's hex pickup to the VG-99 to a DOD Passive Mixer, which splits the direct guitar out from the VG-99 to a Zoom G3 (used for auto wah), a laptop with Guitar Rig Mobile Interface with programmed sounds controlled by a Roland FC-300 and Ableton Live controlled by a Keith McMillan SoftStep, Line 6 M9 (for modulation), and Eventide H9 with expression pedal, all running through a Mesa/Boogie Lonestar combo.more
“Essentially, it’s stuff that we came across during the recording of the songs. When we’re writing songs, we don’t mess with pedals, we just plug guitars into amps. It’s only in the studio that we find all the different toys and gadgets to add to different parts. That’s what these are: bits and pieces from the most recent record, The Black Market mainly. "I do a lot more clean tone stuff than Zach does, so that tone has to be just right. We’ll spend days in the studio trying to get the right clean tone, so we’ll try and simulate that with some of these. It’s all fairly simple stuff: delay, reverb and tremolo. We trust Jeff - he’s like our ‘artist’ back here - to introduce these colours to the songs and he does a great job of it.”more
In this picture (from RJM official website http://www.rjmmusic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=803 ), of Toko's pedalboard bild as well as St. Vincent by Nice Rack Canada, a Eventide H9. "The almost unlimited sonic possibilities of the Eventide H9 make this compact system sonically reach far beyond it's size."more
"I’ve got the Crocodile switcher, Origin Cali76 compressor—which is like a take on the old UA 1176s, then the Fulltone Full-Drive, Wampler Dual Fusion, then some of the Strymon stuff—the Timeline, blueSky, and Mobius, then an Eventide H9, and a wah. First in the chain, I’m using a Pete Cornish input buffer, which is a sweet little piece."more
"I have eight in my current set-up, but I’m constantly swapping things out. I try not to add any, because I’m trying to be as compact and efficient as possible. Recently, I got the Eventide H-9, and it’s a square, white pedal with an LED screen. It’s really awesome; it allows me to access any preset Eventide has ever created and it can do reverb, delay, pitch shifting, harmonizing, it can do all these crazy things. It’s a compositional tool in itself."more
The ultimate time-based signal processor.
The H9 features a simple, one-knob user interface which allows easy Effect Editing and Preset Selection. Two onboard Footswitches let you change Presets, Tap Tempo, and Bypass with your feet during live performance.
While the H9 is fully controllable via its front panel, a free editor/librarian, H9 Control, can be downloaded to your Mac, PC, or iOS device. Use the H9 Control app for live editing, creating and managing presets, and changing system settings.
H9 even connects via Bluetooth to iPods, iPhones and iPads for wireless live control.
This is a studio quality effectunit in a small box. And the new pre/post routing is great. It's worth the price! Eventide nows you want to keep your tone, and that works for me.
This pedal alone replaced so many other pedals on more board. It has everything I want, versatility, and quality. The quality of effects is studio grade and I feel I have not sacrificed any loss in tone from this in comparison the analog pedals I ran before. I am looking to pair this with a Boss ES5 for ease of use in the live setting with the midi switching capabilities.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pedal and all the options I have with creating/editing new patches via the Mac app, iPad app and iPhone app though I'd think twice about purchasing this pedal if you don't have some sound design experience. Without it you might be stuck playing with just the presets.
Where do I even begin? I don't know if you can even write a review for this thing. It does so many things, and it does them extremely well. All I can say is, pick one of these up and see for yourself. Once you get past the hefty price tag, you have the work of a mad scientist in your hands.
I use this pretty much an all of my boards mainly as modulation, delay and/or combination of all three. This thing has amazing sounds and versatility. I would definitely buy another one and it would be the one pedal I would take to a desert island.
I think enough people talked about the sound quality of it, and some of the effects and factory patches are pretty unique and beautiful. Besides, that's hard to judge, as one person's dud is another's revelation.
I would like to be able to chain some different effects together, but alas, you can't do that, without buying more boxes...
So this is far from replacing my Korg Pandora Stompbox, which may not match the H9 in many ways, but it does really let me create my sound with a chain of effects within itself. So I use the H9 to do what the Korg either can't do or isn't as good at.
Together, they may seem an odd couple to many people, but between them, I miss nothing. On the rare occasions I want something really crazy, I usually prefer to do those alterations in the DAW anyway.
My next purchase is this awesome tool. First because i need some reverb to play with, also because i need some modulation to combine with my Strymon Mobius(that don't mix effects one each other). I think get some different delays and whatever be awesome to my experiences. A great tool taht lacks only a sen/ return in/out. Even though i give 5 stars to this gun machine!
