PitchFuzz

PitchFuzz is a new multi-effect algorithm that combines fuzz, three pitch shifters and two delays for an amazing range of tonal shapes. It allows you to recreate some of the classic guitar sounds of artists such as Jimmy Page, Brian May, Frank Zappa, Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai—all of whom used Eventide gear in their rigs in the ‘70s and ‘80s. PitchFuzz is something new; more than, and different from, a classic fuzz octaver. It can also be used to recreate distortion sounds from the ‘90s alternative rock era and beyond.

PitchFuzz Algorithm Controls
Fuzz [FUZZ]
Controls the amount of Fuzz/Distortion generated after the input signal. A setting of 0 completely bypasses the Fuzz effect. Use 1 - 50 for a distortion type effect and 51 - 100 for more of a Fuzz type effect.
Fuzz Tone [FZTONE]
Tone shaper for the fuzz effect.
Pitch Amount [PEACH]
Controls the level of the three Pitch Shifters. From 0 to 3 Voices. Pitch A: 0 - 1.0, Pitch A + B: 1.0 - 2.0, Pitch A + B + C: 2.0 - 3.0.
Pitch A [PTCH-A]
Adjust the pitch shift amount of the A voice. Range is +/- 2 octaves with micro pitch shift ability at unison (+/- 25c).
Pitch B [PTCH-B]
Same as Pitch A.
Pitch C [PTCH-C]
Same as Pitch A.
Delay Level [DLYLVL]
Controls the amount of both Delays in the signal path as well as two types of Delay routings (Group Delay and Arp Delay). Starting fully counter-clockwise, Group Delay sends the whole signal including all of the Pitched Voices to both delays. Turning past center activates Arpeggiated Delay Mode. In this mode, only voices B and C are fed to the delays (separately and respectively) allowing the creation of apreggiated type effects. Try this with PITCH AMT set to 3.0.
Delay A [DLY-A]
Sets the Delay time for Delay A from 0 to 2500ms when TEMPO is OFF. With TEMPO ON, Delay is sync'ed to the TEMPO BPM and is adjusted in note division increments from No Delay (NO DLY) to a Whole Note (WHOLE) in the most common note divisions.
Delay B [DLY-B]
Same as Delay A.
Feedback [FDBK]
Adjusts the amount of feedback for both delays and contains two feedback types (F1 and F2). F1 links both delay times to create a rhythmic, repeating pattern where the longer delay sets the pattern length. The shorter delay will not repeat again until the longer delay has passed. F2 is a traditional feedback control, where delay times are independent.
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..
HotSwitch
The Middle Footswitch can be programmed to act on the loaded Preset as a programmable controller allowing the user to switch between the normal Preset parameter values and a programmed, alternate set of parameter values. It’s like having two Presets in one.
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).
