"I don't have that much gear onstage but what I have gives me a lot of options. I have an Eventide H9... the one with the wheel. You can make your patches with an iPhone so these days you call your guitar effect! I have a Strymon BlueSky reverb that I use too, which is the best reverb I've heard in a box the size of a guitar pedal."more
On Twitter from Eventide, they shared [this post](https://twitter.com/EventideAudio/status/1030799614159544321) showing the pedalboard from Peter Frampton. Two units of Eventide H9 can be seen on the pedalboard. Peter also [retweeted the post](https://twitter.com/peterframpton/status/1030904033341452288) and said: > For me, you need less on a pedal board because of the depth of the H9s. Love 'em!more
Here’s some shots of a board we did for @jeffloomis1 last year. This one had some cool LEDs on it. With the @bossfx_us ES-8s versatility it is easily able to be used in stereo or mono amps, with or without effects loops. The Bigsky is also MIDI programmed to be turned on/off via the ES-8 without being in one of its’ loops. #RigsByBTPAmore
Instagram post from Jimmy Smith from November 2017. He says: > This here gizmo is gonna carry me to the rings of Saturn and beyond. Big thanks to @fender and true source of inspiration Ed O’Brien for inventing this beauty. An Eventide H9 Harmonizer Multi-Effects Pedal can be spotted amongs his pedals.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
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
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
"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
In [this profile on Eastwood Guitars' website](https://eastwoodguitars.com/blogs/news/interview-with-wires-colin-newman-we-are-not-punk), Newman specifies that he uses an H9. "I have a bunch of exotic things, too, like the Eventide H9, which I'm totally under-using at the moment, just to make 12-string sounds," he says.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
> A sleepy, sloping, slow groove, built up live with the Lorre Mill Double Knot, triggered and played by the Meng Qi Gesture Arcade. This is running through a deep phase algorithm from the Eventide H9. A trigger is coming from the Double Knot to keep the Korg Volca's in time. Something very simple and laid back, merely a sketch, not a finished work by any means. Simply put, FUN :-) 'Beating the Volcas', Robin Rimbaud-Scanner, Youtube, 30 Aug 2019more
Eventide has been around for over 45 years, and Ciani has been a close friend almost since the beginning. An early adopter of one of our first products, the H910 Harmonizer, she continues the legacy by including an H9 in her current setup. The H9 Multi Effects is listed to the "gear" section of Eventide artist page dedicated to her.more
Geoff Kraly: On the bass end of things, the bass is going through the pedal board that you’ll see, so all the pedals are for the bass. There’s three distortion pedals, there’s a Devi Ever Bit, which is an 8-bit gated fuzz. There’s a Tech 21 VT Bass, which is a SansAmp distortion. I use it more like a clean boost in a way, it’s not heavily distorted. There’s a Prunes and Custard pedal by Crowther Audio, which is made in New Zealand. It’s kind of a filter distortion. There’s two delay pedals. One is a Malekko 616, and a crazy, Particle granular delay by Red Panda. Probably the biggest part of the sound for Paris Monster is the Eventide PitchFactor. That’s doing all the pitch shifting on a few different settings. That’s on 80% of the time in this band. Maybe a little less than that. Then, an Ernie Ball volume pedal. I think that’s about it. Yeah, and then some expression knobs and AUX switches for the Eventide.more
From there, an Eventide H9 provides multi-tap delays, the Chase Bliss Total Recall delivers dark analog delays, and she uses the Avalanche Run’s swell and reverse modes to layer extra ambience atop delicate fingerpicked passages. “It’s perfect the type of music I play,” she says. “I love to play ambient stuff.” For shimmery reverb sounds, Puckett uses the Walrus Audio Fathom. Finally, the pedal she gets the most questions about isn’t a pedal at all, but an Altoids case. It’s for picks.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.
This is an excellent choice for an effects pedal for use with synthesizers. The lack of physical control knobs is creatively addressed through the H9 app for iOS that gives you control over every parameter. Using the iTunes Store you can buy individual algorithms effects and after purchasing 10 algorithms your H9 turns into an H9 Max granting you all of the available effects for the unit and any that come out in the future. Great piece of kit.
When I created the Dubstomp sub-genre of Dubstep and became the first guitarist to play dubstep I powered my guitar-synth rig with Eventide and nothing else. The H9 Max forms the second half of my core guitar-synth rig. If Eventide can't meet your processing needs you need to give up now.
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!
