I am running two amps and two H9s. I would like to have a wet amp with (as an example) a chours and a verb and have the other amp completley dry. This is not possibe because for some reason the inputs on the second H9 when set to wet/dry are summed. This seems like a serious oversight but of course I am assuming that a wet/dry would work in that why. I was about to sell some other gear to get another (third) H9 (in large part due to the killer new algorithm: sculpt) but now I can not see why, if I have to run the last two in stereo thus ruining a wet/dry setup.

I love Eventide (demostrated by owning, two H9s, MF, PF and a TF). I love that you fully suport your products for the long run. If it is possible to fix this issue and it is fixed, I would be grateful forever.


Wet/Dry mode sums the stereo inputs, because by constraint of the # of outputs on the H9 (two), Wet/Dry mode can only support mono signals.  But it sounds like you are running mono anyway with one amp for wet and one for dry.  Unless there is some reason you sometimes want to run stereo? 

Assuming you always want a dry and wet amp (mono signals), try the the following:

Run the first H9 in Wet/Dry mode, and run the second H9 in Normal routing mode. Connect the dry output of the first H9 to your dry amp, and connect the wet output the first H9 to the input of the second H9 (mono input 1).  Then connect the output of the second H9 (mono output 1) to your wet amp.   

Does that sound like what you want to do?
