      I have an original H9 that I maxed out. I really love this pedal for bass. I'm wondering fi anyone has any recommendations for a fretless sound. I've been experimenting with various flanges with some success but I'm wondering if anyone has found a great fretless sound? My next experiment is with the Phase to see if I can get a really nice funky Mutron effect.

      Fretless bass emulation is a tough one in the H9.  I have some glide presets for the PitchFlex algo, but the results sound decidedly synthetic.  There's no way around the fret increments when you actually do glide.  .

      You can get the characteristic 'softened attack' of a fretless with the UltraTap algorithm.  Set the Mix to 100, and most everything else to 0.  Then start out with the Swell [CHOP] at 5, and the RISE time between 10-30.  Between the PitchFactor [PitchFlex] and the H9 [UltraTap], I can approach a fretless sound.  It's more like a synth trying to fake a fretless.

      Let's hear some more about your phase / flange experiments.  I've never gotten an exact emulation, but Mutron-like effects are relatively painless.  Most algorithms with envelope control have similar parameters, so presets are transferrable across phaser, flanger, filters, etc.
