      I am looking for a disto+wah effect.

       

      The basis would be a distortion effect with a wah filter that I can move with an expression pedal to change the sound and the distortion response.

       

      Do you think it is possible to create this on the H9 with the existing effects ?

        Well, you might be pleasantly suprised in a few months or so!

        That sounds suspiciously like a ‘Sculpt’ teaser.  (Then again, it *is* April Fool’s Day).  That would mean a multiband distortion (as reported elsewhere), plus a filter.  And one with a “Q” steep & deep enough to carve out a wah when swept.  Intriguing.

        I might be in the minority, but I’m seeing digital distortion coming in to its own.  It’s not going to be traditional analog distortion, but it’s currently far beyond that grating ’80’s digital. I see more response & sensitivity to input levels and tone changes.  And that has me returning to the CrushStation algo.

        As far as DISTO+WAH goes, I’ll post an example of how to get close in a single algorithm.  This one is voiced for a Systech Overdrive / Triskelion range, with a reversed wah sweep.  Drop BASS and TREBLE, boost the MIDS, and sweep the MIDS FREQ.  Here, the expression pedal sweeps from 1550 Hz. to 200 Hz.  The HotSwitch kicks up DRIVE to 75, and POST-DIST SUSTAIN to 100 for an extra boost.

        I actually use two (H9) distortions instances stacked, and ‘sync’ the expression pedals together.  It reinforces the filter, although not really enough.  Of course – if you’re already stacking two H9’s – you can just use CrushStation and Q-Wah for more versatility.  But one advantage of these stacked distortions is in blending two gentler settings in series to build one massive, sustaining composite distortion.

      Hey Brock !

      Thank you so much for this example. I was sure that you would have a solution to that problem.

      It’s a very good start for me. As I a play saxophone I will have to change some datas. 

      And I am also very curious to find out what Eventide is preparing… A multiband distorsion with a Q filter would definitively be a great idea. And why not in a next future a double processor H9 ? Something like a H10 devil
