Total agree, I'm surprised about the wish of distorsion!!?? we all know that digital distorsion sucks. I would prefer that Eventide take time where this hardware could be great: spatial and harmoniser effects. I have the same opinion about compressor which can be really good on this kind of hardware. I might consider, a kind of crazy distortion (multi-band), idem with compressor. But making a classic distortion with the H9 is a waste. In my opinion.
