The H9 Core, which is available now, delivers the sounds of Eventide’s H910 and H949 Harmonizers — the prized studio processors used on stage by Frank Zappa, Jimmy Page and Eddie Van Halen. All of Eventide’s stompbox effects, including new H9 exclusives, UltraTap Delay and Resonator, can be added to H9 Core.
The mechanics behind basic delay are simple: Play a note or chord into an audio-storage medium, then get that device to play that sound back to you — either once or multiple times — after whatever amount of time makes you happy. Of course, people have improved upon this simple formula, taking delay to new depths and heights, and often including an infinite assortment of types and combinations in one pedal.
The Guitar World video crew visited the Eventide booth at the 2013 Summer NAMM Show in Nashville earlier this month. While we were there, we caught up with Eventide's Alan Chaput, who showed us some of the company's newest products, including 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.
Yesterday, Guitar World checked out the Eventide booth at the 2012 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim and learned about the all-new updates to the critically acclaimed Space reverb (and beyond) pedal, which was recently featured in the pages of GW.
Ever dream of a room full of guitar pedals that you can try for as long as you like with no sales pressure and all your questions answered? So did New York’s The Deli Magazine, so they put together their CMJ StompBox Exhibit, a sort of petting zoo for pedal-files.
