The Electro Harmonix Synth9 Synthesizer Machine Guitar Effects Pedal allows guitarists and bassists to seamlessly emulate vintage synth sounds with their instrument, simply by accessing one of 9 presets and hitting a footswitch. Whether you're looking to create spacey soundscapes, epic leads, or undeniably funky grooves, you'll have no end of fun exploring the tonal possibilities offered by this incredible pedal from the team at EHX.

As noted, the Synth9 is very simple to use, with an instrument input and two outputs: Synth and Dry. Across the top panel, you'll find a selection of controls including: DRY, SYNTH, CTRL 1, CTRL 2, PRESET, and the footswitch.

The DRY pot controls the volume of the non-effected instrument signal, whilst the SYNTH pot controls the level of the effect-influenced signal at the SYNTH OUTPUT jack. However, in MINI MOOD mode, the SYNTH pot controls the volume of the non-portamento synth, whilst the CTRL 1 pot controls the volume of the portamento synth. The combination of having level control for the individual outputs ensures increased precision over your tone control. The CTRL 1 and CTRL 2 pots allow you to control different settings based on the selected preset synth.

The PRESET knob allows you to switch between the 9-available synth presets, which are: OBX, PROFIT V, VIBE SYNTH, MINI MOOD, EHX MINI, SOLO SYNTH, MOOD BASS, STRING SYNTH and POLY VI. At your disposal, there's an emulation of the awesome Oberheim OB-X, where the CTRL 1 acts as a tone control, whilst CTRL 2 allows you to select between a massive 4 octave range. The PROFIT V takes inspiration from another classic, with sweep time adjustment of the downward filter envelope and selection between 8 intervals of octaves or 5ths for mind-blowing tones.

With the other available presets there are nods to some legendary vintage synths, as well as some updated versions and Electro Harmonix's renditions of classic models. A detailed description of each preset is included in our "Specifications" section, as well as a guide to getting the most out of your new Synth9.

Solid EHX build quality

As with every Electro Harmonix product, the Synth9 Synthesizer Machine is built in New York City, to a very high standard of quality. Each knob feels smooth and responds cleanly, whilst the EHX bypass circuitry prevents your dry signal from becoming coloured by unwanted noise. Latency is non-existent, so you can be sure that what you play is what you hear.

If you're a fan of classic groups like ELP, EVH, Kraftwerk, Joy Division, New Order, Peter Gabriel, P-Funk, then you're going to love the Synth9. Not only does it turn your guitar into a vintage synthesizer without the need for MIDI or a special pickup, but it also turns your bass into one of the funkiest instruments on the planet.

Each pedal is supplied with an Electro-Harmonix 9.6DC-200BI power supply, so all you need to do is plug in and play!
