Eventide has announced the H9 Harmonizer, the newest addition to its stompbox line.

“The H9 is designed to pack all that you need by way of delay, modulation, pitch, and reverb effects, along with a fast, accurate tuner, in a small footprint. We’ve also created a feature-rich remote control app, H9 Control, for controlling the H9 from an iPhone or iPad, wirelessly via Bluetooth or tethered to your PC or Mac via USB,” said Ray Maxwell, Eventide’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “As always, our prime directive is to deliver the Eventide sound that our users have come to rely on. Never before has that sound been packed into such a small package,” he added.

The H9 comes bundled with a set of the most popular algorithms taken from Eventide’s stompboxes: Liquid Chorus, Organic Chorus, Shimmer Chorus, Classic Chorus, Phase XO Chorus, Bias Tremolo, and Opto Tremolo from ModFactor; H910, H949, and Crystals™ from PitchFactor; Tape Echo and Vintage Delay from TimeFactor; and Hall and Shimmer from Space. The standard bundle also includes the first in a series of new H9-specific algorithms, UltraTap Delay™.

All of Eventide’s stompbox algorithms and their associated presets are available for in-app purchase.

While the H9 is fully controllable via its front panel, a free iOS app, H9 Control, can be downloaded to your iPhone or iPad for live editing, creating and managing presets and changing system settings wirelessly via Bluetooth. H9 Control can also be downloaded to your PC or Mac and connected via USB.

The H9 features stereo audio I/O, MIDI I/O and Expression Pedal and Auxiliary Switch inputs.

The H9 will be available in March of 2013 through authorized Eventide stompbox dealers.
