Superb sounds, great iPad/computer software, but a little awkward to operate with feet only.

gaonick, 05.03.2015
The quality of the effects on here blew me away. The delays, reverbs, choruses and various Cocteau Twins-ish combos of them are the best available and you also get a free, but very basic, looper patch with it at the moment. You can also get quite decent distortion from it if you want more shoe gaze or Pink Floyd kind of sounds, although the distortion will not suit blues or hard rock people. The range of included patches in the standard model is huge and you'd really only need to buy one or two extras at most, so I personally wouldn't bother with the Max version. The only effect I was disappointed with was the compressor, which sounds pretty uninteresting. I use this straight into a clean tube amp with only a Diamond compressor in front of it and I've found that it's all I need.

Basically you're getting this: tremolo, vibe, several choruses, harmonisers, several delays including tape-style ones, decent distortion, poor compression, and a lot of very adjustable combinations of all the above.

The software, and the iPad version in particular, is excellent. Unlike just about every other comparable product I've used it's completely bug-free and works perfectly. It's a godsend to be able to see exactly what's going on and adjust everything on a screen like that, especially wirelessly, and the creative possibilities are endless. You can even see the excellent tuner full size, so if you have an iPad it's a really useful tool on stage - much more than I imagined.

The built quality is fantastic. The whole thing is a compact chunk of metal with rock solid stomp switches. Compared to the plasticky quality (and sounds) of Line 6 gear it's worth it for this alone, not to mention that the sounds are in a different class. I expect it to last for many years.

The only downside is that it's a little awkward to operate without the iPad/computer, and the Bluetooth only works with iOS devices - cable only for PC or Mac. You can easily move forward to the next patch, bypass the unit, or go to the tuner or tap-tempo with the switches, but anything else is quite fiddly. The main irritation for me here is that if you need to go back through the patches, say from patch 10 to patch 3 again, you have to press the plastic dial in the centre to reverse the direction of the "next patch" stomp switch. This is quite hard to do with feet, so it limits the options for switching patches mid song without the iPad, and it's easy to hit the wrong button if you use your feet. If you use it with the iPad it's no problem at all though.

One final caveat: if you update the firmware and iPad software, make sure you get online with everything connected first, as I hadn't realised the device needed reactivating online to be able to connect to the iPad again after the firmware update, and nearly found myself unable to use it at a gig.

Overall, this is by far the best multi effects unit I've ever used. The quality of the sounds and the build quality is top notch; the iPad and computer software is fairly easy to use, looks very professional and works perfectly; but you'll get more out of it with an iPad/iPhone, although it is perfectly usable without.

Eventide still on the cutting edge!

Brendan C., 13.07.2014
Congratulations to all at Eventide for this Fantastic new Tool.
The H9 is a Superbly thought out and useful addition to my effects pallet
High build quality,intuitively set out and extremely portable, Stereo in's/outs
with Stunning Audio quality.
This is the most Inspiring bit of kit I have used recently and I believe Thomann were offering the best price I could find.
Be prepared to spend some time Editing the patches if you are using the H9 for other than Solo Ambient work but the beauty of it is that the H9 Control Software makes it really easy to Edit and Save the changes you may want to make.
a real joy to use and it can Inspire your Playing and Writing In many many new directions
Highly Recommended!
