Necro-Update: I skipped the original SuperEgo pedal, but recently added a SuperEgo+ (alongside a Freeze pedal, H9s, etc.). I haven’t logged many hours in the woodshed with this, but GLISS and AUTO mode emulations remain elusive. LAYERS are somewhat limited to control by technique. Some SE+ modes can be simulated perfectly; including built-in FX. Other mode setups: impossible, or difficult with workarounds.
This preset is more like the SE+ LATCH mode, and the MOMENT mode (using HotSwitch control). But using a soft-touch switch, the techniques feel organic, and interactive. THRESHOLD is bottomed out, to pick up most any input signal. Other than [H9] DECAY, most parameters are at neutral settings. ATTACK and RELEASE (SE+ ‘DECAY’) mirror functions in both units. OMNI-RATIO adjustments push the H9 into another class of effects.
Select between momentarily sampling the buffer for your frozen note, or latching between a frozen state, and a ‘rest’ state. Both options have their musical usefulness. Use an Aux switch mapped to the expression pedal, or an Aux switch mapped to the HotSwitch / Performance switch function.
Aux Switch -> Expression Pedal Heel: DECAY FREEZE

HotSwitch = OFF DECAY FREEZE
HotSwitch = ON DECAY 0.1 S
In either action, holding an ‘ON’ state – with silent input – samples that silence into FREEZE (effectively erasing it). H9’s DECAY parameter can be increased to 1.0 – 2.0 Seconds, to simulate the SE+ DECAY parameter. Too much H9 DECAY, and the ‘LAYERS’ will begin to overlap in FREEZE mode.
