H9 Max - Eventide Audio

A Complete Pedalboard in One Stompbox

The H9 Max Harmonizer® effects pedal is full of Eventide’s iconic reverb, chorus, delay, modulation, pitch-shifting, and distortion effects. With the H9 Max, you can evoke the sonic landscape of legendary albums and open the doors to the creation of new sounds never heard before. Faithfully recreate the iconic sounds used by top artists, engineers, and producers such as Steve Vai, Jimmy Page, Frank Zappa, Eddie Van Halen, Richard Devine, Suzanne Ciani, and many more.

The award-winning design of the H9 features a simple, one-knob user interface that allows easy effect editing and preset selection. Two onboard footswitches let you change presets, tap tempo, and bypass with your feet during live performance. The H9 offers studio-quality sound, stereo I/O, and full MIDI compatibility. With the free H9 Control app, you can create setlists, edit and manage presets wirelessly via Bluetooth or USB. The app is available for iOS, Android, Mac, and PC.

Chameleon-like!

The latest addition to Eventide’s stompbox range has the chameleon-like ability to emulate all of its siblings! The sound quality is impeccable… and the amount of care and thought that must have gone into developing the control app is impressive.
