  • Eventide H9 question

    So I’m looking at the Eventide H9, and it looks like it doesn’t have enough footswitches for proper operation. It has MIDI and an Exp jack. What kind of footswitch can I connect to augment control options?
    What’s funnier than putting up roadblocks to stop the advance of someone who’s running away from you at four hundred miles an hour?

    You can use any midi controller the question is what are you looking to switch. I use my iPad with mine and an expression pedal. It seems to be more than enough for me.

      Since the H9 supports MIDI mapping, basically any MIDI controller will work fine. You nearly MUST use a device to edit, trying to edit on the H9 is a major headache. An iPad is ideal. I used one with the ES8, it worked great. Setup on the iPad, control with anything that will send MIDI PC.
      Oh no.....


      Oh Yeah!

        You would want a midi controller that sends program change and continuous control messages. It could be an iPad or laptop, but to use it live, ideally it would be some kind of foot controller. You don't need to spend a ton, though. Any midi foot controller sending at least the 2 kinds of messages would work. They leave out the 'control' part on the H9 because not everyone needs to control the sound throughout a musical piece, and they can keep the price & overall size down.

          That is the product in a nutshell. The round button on the front makes it easy to spin through your presets. Or you can use the switch to bank. I have an iPad holder on my mic stand and use the iPad interface to switch settings and tweak things if needed.

          This is the edit interface it connects and controls the pedal in real-time

            As long as you have some pauses where you can take your hands off of your instrument, this seems like a great solution to just using the front panel.

              I just need a couple of seconds between tunes. I don't switch patches intra-song. If I need to change a parameter I use the expression pedal. For example on one song I play around with the phase speed with expression pedal. It is pretty cool

                How does the iPad interface with the H9?

                  Is that through the Camera Connector?

                    It connects via Bluetooth in real-time. If you move a knob on the app it changes the parameter in the pedal. If you use the exp pedal you see the changes on the iPad app. The lag is almost nonexistent.

                      Why don't all multieffects do this? It is such an elegant idea.

                        Yeah, the iPad interface is pretty cool and does a lot of really cool stuff in real-time. The XY pad is one of the coolest features check out this video.
