Hey! I’m seriously looking at the H90, but have a few questions I’m trying to figure out that the manual isn’t completely clear on.
1) Can I use MIDI to change the algorithm and/or preset inside of a patch? If yes, does doing so have spillover? I’m thinking I’d mostly use an H90 as a delay pedal, but when I don’t need two delays it would be nice to be able to be spontaneous and have a couple algorithms/presets I can throw into the mix without having to have already created tons of patches!
2) How well does the H90 handle consecutive MIDI messages? IE: upon loading a patch with two delay patches, could I send CC messages with the PC message to both load the patch and simultaneously change the tempo subdivisions of both delays? I’ve had issues with other pedals not being able to handle multiple consecutive MIDI messages in the past, so I gotta ask since I do this a ton with my rig.
3) Am I able to assign an LFO to the rate of a tremolo in any of those algorithms? I’d love to be able to create a ramping trem effect with this!
4) Do Squareplug SP400s (or similar) fit if I’m only aiming to use a single set of stereo inputs/outputs?

Hi, thanks for your interest in the H90. To answer your questions:
1. A Program change sent to the H90 will load a new Program, which is a combination of 2 Algorithm Presets. You cannot send a PC that will only change one of these Presets, it will always load a new Program. You would need to make your Programs before hand to have the desired Presets, and then load them via PC messages. You can use the pedal UI or H90 Control to load a new Preset quickly and easily, but this cannot be done remotely.
2. I just tested this with Ableton by sending a PC followed by 3 CC’s mapped to 3 different parameters and the H90 handled this just fine.
3. Yes, TremoloPan has the option of using a Ramp for the mod source. You could probably accomplish this with some other Algorithms too, Undulator is great with a Ramp mod.
4. These may fit, but I can’t confirm this. I don’t have any of these to test the size, and the measurements look like it would be a tight fit for a stereo pair. We like the Squareplug SPS4 connecters.
Let me know if there are any other questions I can help with.

Darn, I figured I couldn’t do the first thing, but I really hoped! Maybe that will be added to CC programming functionality in the future? 😉
Thanks for all the other questions too! SPS4’s won’t fit on my board, but I have a solution that will work (even if it requires solderless plugs…yuck).

Off topic but anyone compare h90 to fractal fm3 yet ??
November 17, 2022 at 4:31 pm #166798
There are some discussions/comparisons on the Fractal Audio forums.
It’s best not to go off topic on these forums threads, so if you have a topic to discuss that does not relate to a thread, please create a new topic. This makes it easier for users to find the information they’re looking for.

SP400s will fit if you only use Input and Output 1/2. You can rotate the plugs by 90 degrees and plug in like this:
Input | Output
->(1) (3) | (1) <- (3)
->(2) (4) | (2)<- (4)

I’m using a morningstar Mc8 to control My h90.
I’m trying to program a clean tone setting with all my pedals so that when I step on the switch it turn off all My pedals. Like a reset button or sorts.
I only see a toggle for P Act/Byp – is there a Bypass only CC message ?
any work around ?

Yes, using P Act/Byp (M), a CC value of 64 or greater will activate the Program, and 63 or less will bypass it.

Thanks so much tbskoglund,
don’t know how I missed that
