      Hello all,

      I recently bought an H9 and am mostly really happy with it.

      I have one problem, though. I have two other pedals downstream from my H9 and use the tap tempo of the H9 to control the tempo of the other pedals via MIDI clock (the pedals are a Hologram Microcosm and a Strymon Volante). In most situations this works perfectly, and I can enjoy the tempo-synchronized effects. Loads of fun!

      However, with certain algorithms, the tap tempo button of the H9 is deactivated (“unused”), for example with the EQ compressor algorithm. And if I use these algorithms, I haven’t managed to change the tempo that is sent by the H9. Is there any way to do this? Is there a way to use the tap tempo with these algorithms?

      Thank you in advance for any help with this!

      Hello Johannes, when using algorithms like the EQ Compressor you may tap the tempo using an auxiliary switch. As long as Tap Tempo is mapped to that switch in the pedal’s Aux Switch Mappings, the H9 will send MIDI CLK information to your downstream pedals.

      Be aware that if you change into the “EQ Compressor” algorithm and the H9 sends out a program change to downstream pedals, those pedals will default to the tempo settings programmed into their algorithms because the eq Comp algo doesn’t send out a BPM. So, my advice is to program presets on the other pedals for when you’re using the EQ Comp, so they switch to the BPM you want. But otherwise, you will be able to control them from the H9 via a tap tempo switch.

      Hello Joe,

      thank you for your swift reply!

      Currently I’m using a Barn3 OX9 for switching presets, so I guess I will need an extra footswitch, too. Luckily, there’s the extra jack at the side of it. 🙂

      Yes, so I’ve noticed. I was wondering where the other pedals get their tempo from when the H9 is on that algorithm…
