Hi! I am not technically minded. Many of the H9 presets are far too complex for my tiny brain, and I feel I am tweaking controls randomly. I hate the time-suck and high rate of failure I routinely experience in trying to create workable presets. I would like two things: 1. A slooow phase preset with a basic cycle that takes about 8-10 seconds to get back to the top (or bottom) of the loop. Call it “slow vintage phase.” Find my creation of it with a Line-6 M9 here: https://keyparty-sb.bandcamp.com/track/diamond-eyes 2. Little cursor triggered hover-over pop-up captions for the app that explain the controls in descriptive guitar-player terms, e.g. “increases or decreases the rate of the effect” or “modifies the effect from softly shifting waves of attack to blunt, dramatic strikes.” Meanwhile, what us musical, non geeky consumers have to wade through is a bunch of oblique technical terms that read like laws the laws of physics! These describe nothing by way of practical functionality, so I can’t adjust the preset to resemble what I am hearing in my head. It’s awful, makes me feel stupid and does not result in the sonic beauty I know it could help me create. Do I have to go back to my shitty, but intuitive Line 6 M9? Heaven help us!

Hi Duncan 59, maybe i can help. Nice track btw :)

Is yours the H9 Max or?

Hi again RA / Entreat 69! You said you can help? Please do share, I am keen to get this slow phase/flange effect dialed in for my shows. (I play that song that I shared and I currently have a very poor phase in my H9 that does not deliver). THANK YOU!

Duncan

Hi Duncan sorry for the late reply, been busy with crazy datelines.

I heard your track again and it does sound more like a Flanger than a Phaser effect following a Fuzz. I will upload the presets for you to try and feel free to make slight adjustments to come closer to what suits your ears. I've also included a tap tempo and the phase/flange sweep across 2 to 3 bars. Feel free to adjust those parameters too. I'll provide the link in my next post after I update my H9 Max firmware. Cheers

Hi Duncan 59 though I think the Flanger is closer to what you are looking for here's also Phaser Algorithm version for your H9 to try. Feel free to correct the Tempo if it isn't 125bpm. Also do change the bar length to suit your purposes. Hope this comes closer to what you intend for your song. Good luck.

Randolf! That's amazing of you, thank you! When I've had more coffee I'll figure out how to get these patches into my H9 to try them out :) (as I said, not very technically minded). But this is so helpful, I cannot tell you! I'll get back to you with results. You rock.

In the olden days people used to say RTFM

Nowadays it's no longer politically correct I guess

Please make H9 Control multitask. I can't use my iPad for anything else without H9 Control app completely restarting. Or at least save context for when I return, it doesn't actually have to do anything while I'm task switching.

Hey Randolf,
I worked with both of your patches and the Flanger was just about perfect. At a show last night that long slow flange cut through the band’s mix like a hot knife through butter, and sounded really good. It reminded me why I bought the H9 in the first place! I need to make that flanged loop a little bit longer if possible, (and will try to figure out the parameters to do this) but it’s otherwise perfect! Thank you again for your helpful soundcrafting,
Duncan

As this thread is really, really, really long, I did not even try searching for my wish in it. So, here it is: I would love to have an option to turn off showing value changes on the H9s screen when they are modulated externally (MIDI). I send the H9 several MIDI LFOs from an Empress Zoia and as H9 tries to cope with displaying several changing parameter values (with no indication of which parameters they are), its knob and buttons become sort of unresponsive. They still function, but as the display is taken over by the ever-changing parameter values, it is impossible to see manual parameter changes or preset names.

Internal modulators! The H9 would be so much more powerful if it had a few lfos, envelopes, step sequencer and other types of modulators that you could assign to the fx params. Would turn the pdeal into a much more powerful beast!

This is most probably not possible with the existing algorithms as it would require the reprogramming of all existing presets -> nightmare. And most algorithms have modulation in them anyway. I am personally fine with modulating the H9 externally. With the new Zoia from Empress Effects, you can send all sorts of modulations to the H9 and even make those modulations part of a Zoia preset. When you load that preset, the H9 switches to the associated preset and gets modulated by the Zoia. The two become a powerful processor. But this display problem I mentioned above makes the H9 difficult to use while being modulated. It would be a simply general settings switch to fix this. 'Display values of MIDI modulated parameters' Yes / No :)

I would love a port from native reverb SP2016. Just love it on many many things.  Is it possible?

There is a new public beta version, which enables H9 to run in the background. So now it works in the multitask mode, and you can use a 3rd party app to send MIDI to your Eventide pedals via H9 Control.

Here is the link to the beta: https://testflight.apple.com/join/rTMrrvEQ

Let me know if this works for you guys

Thanks! This is something that was always mildly abrasive but I didn’t think to bitch about. An excellent improvement.
