set it to completely dry…. perfect sound

now set it to 0 delay, 0 feedback, 1.00 pitch and totally wet…. can u hear the lofi sound?

Yes.  That's the H910 'character' you're hearing.  It was an amazing piece of hardware for its time (mid-70's).  Analog delay chips were noise buckets back then, and one solution was to lower the bandwidth.  Longer delay times meant that the "low pass filtering" cutoff frequency was reduced.  Usually, you'd get a range of delay times; each with its own bandwidth. I believe that the H910 was a 16-bit/ 15kHz machine overall.

Part of the lo-fi charm of the H910 and H949 algorithms is the varying degree of glitching, deglitching, and warblyness found in each variation,  In your experiment –  if you move the Depth / Key knob to MODERN at 1.000 –  you'll hear clean, subtle unison doubling.  That sounds like what you're looking for.

But don't overlook the unique, useful sounds in the H900 series.  You can really start to hear the differences between the 3 hardware emulations and digitally-clean when there is some pitch shifting involved.  You can set up up a simple preset, and sweep the Depth / Key knob to compare one with the next:


Mix = WET:50

Pitch Mix = A10+B10

Pitch A = A: 1.498

Pitch B = B: 2.000

Delay A = 0 ms.

Delay B = 0 ms.

(encoder) = 910/949/ TMP OFF

Depth / Key = H910 / H949-1 / H949-2 / MODERN

Speed / Scale = CHROMTC

Xnob = FBK-A:  0

Ynob = FBK-B:  0
