      Hey, I don’t know if the H9 can already do this, and if not, this’d be a great feature in the next update….

      Is there a way to make it so all of the presets on the pedal are at the same volume?  For whatever reason, some are obviously louder than others, which kind of wreaks havoc when switching through a lot of presets.

      Not really. I suspect that we could do better, but in many cases the volume depends on the input source.

      For this reason, each preset has an output level settiing.

        Right, I suspect that for many users, they are just using one input source. Having a master output level in the options (with the option to enable/disable) would be useful… if fact, it would be useful if you had more than one input source, because it would enable you to compensate… if I’m using a high output bass, I could set it one way, then if I have a passive guitar, I could set it another way.

        In that case you don’t need a master output volume but an input volume/boost/trim setting. A passive bass might overload the input. A soft piezo pickup might need a boost or even another input impedance. Not sure if there is an input trim already on the H9 or if it is possible to change the input impedance on the H9 for piezo pickups (some need 10 Meg ohm).

        As for presets having the same levels: best is to use your ears and not your eyes. It is not possible to have the a same general output because it depends on the effect you are usingand  how it reacts to different input gains of different guitars or instruments. Eventide doesn’t know what guitars you are going to use.

        My expectation is that with the same input source (passive guitar), the output from the H9 remains the same across all patches… every other pedal I’m aware of does this, why can’t the H9?  I shouldn’t have to adjust the output volume per patch.
