H9 Power Anyone Can Afford!

Following on the heels of the highly popular H9 multi-effects powerhouse processor, Eventide has introduced the H9 Core. The H9 Core puts you in command of 30 factory presets built around the original H910 and H949 pitch and delay effects algorithms. You have access to all of the great H9-compatible algorithms via in-app purchase from your computer or iOS device. And you can share algorithms between up to five H9s pedals.

Eventide H9 Core Multi-effects Pedal Features:
  • A more affordable version of the H9 that comes loaded with fewer effects algorithms
  • Includes original H910 and H949 pitch and delay effects algorithms plus 30 presets
  • Compatible with all H9 algorithms, which are available as in-app purchases in the editor/librarian app

Eventide H9 Core

I purchased the first H9s when they came out and love the effect so much I desired a second. I really did not start editing and storing patches until I purchased the second, sure I tweaked them a bit but most of them were exactly what I like and did not require adjusting. I use the iPad as my editor and have found the combo so easy to use for editing and storing new patches that I find myself using the Core all the time. I keep an acoustic patch setup available to download for my small gigs and the convenience of switch the setup on the fly is invaluable. The patches load quickly and sound great!

Stunning effects that won't touch your amp tone!

I bought initially 1 unit and returned it due to me being very ill informed about its applications/potential. However, after a brief discussion with one of SweetWater techs over email, I quickly realized that returning the unit was a mistake on my part. Therefore, I end up getting 3 of these!! While the initial setup was a bit hectic for three units, once I had the MIDI configuration logic down on paper, then I could start harnessing the creative tools available in these amazing yet compact boxes. I'm running these through a GCX switcher, controlled by the Ground Control Pro pedalboard with 2 expression pedals. These units are as quiet as they can be. They won't add hiss or noise to your signal path at all. In comparison, in my initial trial I plugged in a Boss Digital Delay pedal in the loops. Here I am thinking that I could still use the Boss DD in my signal path. However, immediately, I could hear the signal of my entire rig degrade by a good bit, This is why I decided to buy 3 x H9 units (1 x H9 Max + 2 x H9 Cores), With three units, quite frankly, you'll be hard pressed to need any other effects unit. I have one dedicated to special effects, delays, and reverbs, respectively. Side note: when you look at the pictures online of the H9 Core and the H9 Max, they appear to be painted in different shades of white. Rest assured that all the pedals look exactly the same, and if you buy 1 H9 Max, then technically all of your H9 cores are easily converted into another set of H9 Max, on up to 4 x H9 Core units total. The combinations of effects/algorithms is insane with this triple setup. It does require some planning to get the most of it and it would all sincerely be a pain if it wasn't for the excellent iPad/iPhone/PC/Mac control application that you can easily download. These effects are so good that I pretty much sold all of my floor pedals! Don't be discouraged by the heavily loaded video demonstrations on the web. I am not a fan of drowning the guitar in effects. These pedals, in the right hands, will make your guitar tone sparkle in ways you thought you could only hear in professional studios. You'll definitely need to dig into the manual to get the most out of these but you will be rewarded. Highly recommend these units! They are very easily controlled via MIDI. Finally, I love that you can use the extra input and output to run these pedals in a 4-cable configuration to allow pre and post routing of effects on-the-fly. The thing I like about combining the Voodoo Labs GCX with these units is that I get to control how many of these routes are being processed at any given time. Not that you really needed it with such high quality boxes like these but I just like the option to be able to clear the path of unnecessary digital processing. I'm running a Mesa Mark V with these and tone stays pristine!

Studio quality effects in a pedal...amazing

Blown away by the H9, the presets are just so far above the vast majority of other options out there, it's just kind of Eventide....then everyone else.I will say Strymon stuff sounds equally as impressive, I am still using my Blue Sky for all my reverb effects, but seriously could ditch about half my pedals and just use the H9 and the Strymon.Outstanding pedal

H9 Core

Absolutely fantastic piece of kit. Sounds amazing.

Van Halen!!!

Excellent pedal. I haven't even begun to see everything this thing can do. What I know it can however, is nail those later Van Halen tones I've been chasing for a long time. Presets 14 and 16 are obviously the 2 presets that are used the most. Love this thing.

I've played with a lot of multi-effects processors in the studio over the years, but never one that sounded as good and was as easy to use as the Eventide H9. Right out of the box, I was able to run my keyboard through it and dial in unique-sounding effects on the fly. It's an amazingly powerful processor, even for my instruments with built-in effects, and I particularly love the way the Panaromance effect enhanced the sound of my string patches.
