Shimmer

We don’t have proof, but we're pretty sure this is what the guitars sound like in heaven. Set the [A-PCH] and [B-PCH] to just above and below 1200c, turn the [DELAY] all the way down, and everything else all the way up.

Oh, and remember to walk toward the light.

Shimmer Algorithm Controls
Mix [MIX]
wet/dry mixer, 100% is all wet signal
Decay [DECAY]
arbitrary 1-100 decay (less decay will also take away reverb attack)
Size [SIZE]
size of the reverb
Delay [DELAY]
post reverb and pre pitch-shift delay time in milliseconds or note-based in tempo mode
Low Band Decay [LO-DCY]
amount of post reverb and pitch-shifter low band signal (this is in the feedback path)
High Band Decay [HI-DCY]
amount of post reverb and pitch-shifter high band signal (this is in the feedback path)
Pitch Shift A [PICH-A]
Pitch-shifter A pitch in cents (500c=P4th, 700c=P5th, 1200c=1 Octave, 1900=1 Octave+P5, 2400=2 Octaves)
Pitch Shift B [PICH-B]
Pitch-shifter B pitch in cents (500c=P4th, 700c=P5th, 1200c=1 Octave, 1900=1 Octave+P5, 2400=2 Octaves)
Pitch Shift Level [PITCH]
controls feedback around the reverberator and therefore the amount of pitch-shifted signal.
Mid Band Decay [MIDDCY]
amount of post reverb and pitch-shifter mid band signal (this is in the feedback path)
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).
