        Less ballsy than most, I imagine.  And I really don’t want to imagine.  I try to give presets unique, yet descriptive names.  Those descriptions might only make sense to me; filtered through my sense of humor.

        Let’s face it:  Many of these presets are intentionally weird.  Showcase-y.  I tried to balance that with bread ‘n’ butter presets.  Oddly enough, I’m finding those roles often reversed now, as I use them more.

        I mentioned the expression pedal integration in passing.  For a few presets, that might only mean subtle MIX or rate changes.  But I think the EXP PED variations are key here.  In most cases, the intent is to dynamically switch between two distinct synth types, or programming extremes.  Play it like a volume pedal.

        If no expression pedal is available, it might be worth dialing up the HotKnob, or ribbon strip in H9 Control.  There’s a lot of fine-tuning to be had in the ‘morphing’ positions between Heel & Toe.

      I can’t wait to get started on these!

      I started digging into the HotSawz controls yesterday, and there’s a lot packed in there. It’s like a Moog for the guitar.

      Sixty-six added ser presets for the new HotSawz algorithm, in a 66-Preset [L]ist for the H9.   

      Why 66?  Along with the 33 shipping [F]actory presets, these will total up to a full 99-preset load for the H9.  Apologies in advance for any similarities to the [F]actory offerings.  I never load them up until I’ve really learned a new algorithm for myself.  I started this [L]ist with some organization in mind: leads / pads, filter features, rhythms, pitch sweeps & effects …  Ended up with a variety pack towards the end.

      Drag ‘n’ drop over the Preset List tab in H9 Control 3.5.0, or go to Settings -> ‘Import presets or preset lists’. Every preset (except #66) includes integrated expression pedal control. To utilize the new HotSawz algorithm, download the H9 update 5.6.0 [0] here:

      Hey Brock – Thanks for the presets! You always deliver the goods. Can’t wait to check them out.

      I’ve just started digging into Hotsawz and managed to save a few patches. Best results I’ve had are from adding additional effects. Dropping an overdrive after Hotsawz really adds some needed punch. And, of course, all the great harmonizers, verbs and echoes in the Eventide arsenal open up lots of options. Thanks again!

      Just played through all of them and loved them. I like that your presets mixed in the dry sound. Most of our factory presets have the MIX parameter of 100, which I think we could have done better. Your presets are exactly what I want. Thank you very much. Maybe you should also share them here so more users can see?

      Having dry works really well. It seems that it would also be great to use wet/dry to send the guitar signal to a fuzz, and the synth signal straight through.

    • #150647

      Great idea on the wet/dry split.  Seems like it’d be a nice fit for davebrubaker’s ‘Power Of Three’ thread.  Wet2 / Dry1 for HotSawz, Wet1 / Dry 2 on a 2nd H9, loaded with one of the 3 digi-stortion algorithms.  I want to try that with a ‘hybrid’ series / parallel / series routing, to see how it all sums back to mono.

      As for the single H9 dry / wet MIX, you can create some nice ‘distortions’ from HotSawz alone.  Subtle, or not-so-subtle.  MIX up the ‘harmonics’, tweak down the FILTER.  Let it ‘bloom’ after the initial (dry) pick attack.  Dial in some ‘finger vibrato’, or an amazing-sounding ‘Uni-Growl’ from sweeping detuned oscillators.

      Thank you very much! Very nice and operative job!

    • #150649

      Big thank you for this!! I couldn’t figure out how to get the best out of the new algorithm. Brilliant work. Cyber beer on its way cheers.

      Thank You Brock, for the presets. Really cool! Makes me play differently, especially picking technique and double notes on some

      of the presets. Thanks of posting.

    • #150720

      The expression/hotknob parameters are essential. It’s like twiddling the filter knob on a real synth.
