… Now I think about it; what does the name H9 stand for?

Here’s my guess.  From Mix magazine.  The H9s were an ‘abbreviated’ version of the rack units, while also expanding on some of the concepts.  And we know who the ‘Factor’ pedals were named for.

When you name a product after a Beatles tune (the model number refers to the “One After 909”), it better be good. However, when Eventide founder Richard Factor assigned his young designer Anthony Agnello (the company’s first “degreed” engineer) to begin building a harmony processor in 1974, they had no idea that they’d be creating an audio classic of their own.”
