The H9 Max is also equipped with some unique features that include: UltraTap Delay, Resonator, EQ Compressor, CrushStation and SpaceTime. Whether it's weighty overdrive, ping pong delay, mind-blowing reverb, or extreme pitch-shifting, it is all yours.
The H9 Max comes packed with 47 effect algorithms, and 99 presets. However, over 500 presets can be accessed via the H9 Control app using Bluetooth and the iOS app, Plus, with the Max unit, all future algorithms are available at no additional cost. The unit can also be connected to your PC or Mac via USB for updating and editing your presets.
Layout and connectivity
The H9 features a simplistic single-knob interface, which is combined with a pair of footswitches that allow you to deftly and easily navigate the effects menu within to change presets, set the tap tempo, and bypass the unit during live performances. True bypass circuitry is employed so that when the pedal is inoperative, your tone remains unaffected.
With regard to connectivity, you'll find a pair of stereo inputs, a pair of stereo outputs, an expression pedal input for real-time control, as well as MIDI IN and OUT/THRU ports. Whatever your setup, the H9 Max is built to communicate perfectly with the rest of your gear.
H9 Control App
To manage your preset lists, update firmware, configure aux switches, listen to demos, backup settings, etc., Eventide has created the H9 Control app. As well as manipulating parameters and settings, the app encourages you to push sonic boundaries, so that your imagination is given total freedom to find the tone of your dreams.
