Ducked Delay Algorithm Controls
Mix [MIX]
wet/dry mixer, 100% is all wet signal.
Delay Mix [DLYMIX]
Controls the relative level of the twin delays, Delay A and Delay B. The H9 has circuitry that detects which input/output jacks are being used and adjusts the routing of signals through the Effects algorithm accordingly. Dly Mix’s mixing behavior depends on whether you’re using mono or stereo outputs. For Mono Out, with [DLYMIX] = 0, output 1 will have only Delay A’s contribution. With [DLYMIX] = 50%, Output 1 has an equal amount of Delay A and Delay B. With [DLYMIX] =100, Output 1 will have only Delay B’s contribution. For Stereo output, with [DLYMIX] = 0, BOTH outputs will have only Delay A’s contribution. With [DLYMIX] = 50, Delay A goes to Output 1 only and Delay B goes to Output 2 only. With [DLYMIX] = 100%, BOTH outputs will have only Delay B’s contribution.
Delay A [DLY-A]
Sets delay time for Delay A output from 0 to 3000 ms (milliseconds). With Tempo OFF, delay is displayed in mSec. With Tempo ON, delay can be sync’d to the tempo and is displayed as a rhythmic sub-division of the tempo beat value - changing this from 0 to a whole note in common note increments.
Delay B [DLY-B]
Same as A.
Feedback A [FBK-A]
Controls level of Feedback A, the number of repeats.
Feedback B [FBK-B]
Same as A.
Ducking Ratio [RATIO]
Sets the ducking ratio or the degree to which the delay is attenuated.
Threshold [THRSHD]
Sets the ducking threshold - the audio amplitude - at which ducking kicks in (-36 dB to -66 dB).
Release Time [RELEAS]
Sets the release time from 500 to 10 msec. With the release time set to short values, the delay will kick in quickly when you stop playing. With the release time set to longer values, the delay will stay ducked for a while. Longer release times are useful when you’re playing a riff and don’t want the delay to kick in between notes.
Filter [FILTER]
AA low pass/high cut filter variable from 0 (no filtering) to 100 (extreme hi cut).
Output Level
At 0 the output level is unaffected. Increase the output level of the effect by up to 20 dB or lower by 30 dB.
TEMPO ON / TEMPO OFF
Tempo is turned ON/OFF on the H9 by simultaneously pressing the Right Footswitch and the PRESETS button. With Tempo OFF, tapping can be used to adjust delay parameter values (displayed as milliseconds or Hz). With Tempo ON, tempo is in BPM.
Active
Turn effect on or off..
Repeat
Press and hold for infinite repeat.
TAP
If Tempo is ON, the display indicates the current tempo in BPM (30 to 500 BPM) while tapping and the Tap LED will blink at the BPM rate. If Tempo is OFF, the display indicates the parameter value (milliseconds for most algorithms).
