When I open the H9 control the midi recieve is set to omni but the page under SETTINGS that says connect midi device to Eventide device shows NONE.
That page under Settings is for a different purpose than that. It doesn't show what MIDI device is connected to an H9. It's for connecting a MIDI device to H9 Control and then sending its data to the H9.
If I were you, I would hook up the MIDI cable that you have going to the H9 to a computer and use either MIDI Monitor on Mac or MIDI Ox on Windows to see what MIDI messages the H9 is receiving.
