Tape Echo 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 B 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.
Saturation [SATUR]
Simulates analog tape saturation. Ranges from ‘0’ (none) to ‘10’ (max) for the warm compression and distortion associated with overdriven tape.
Tape Wow [WOW]
Simulates analog tape Wow. Wow is a term used to describe relatively slowly changing pitch and amplitude modulations caused by problems with the motor or tape transport that causes the tape’s motion across the head to vary. A well maintained tape recorder should have no audible Wow. Ranges from ‘0’ (none) to ‘10’ (max).
Tape Flutter [FLUTTR]
Simulates tape machine Flutter. Like Wow, Flutter is caused when the tape motion across the magnetic heads isn’t constant. Flutter is a more rapidly changing variation than Wow. Ranges from 0 (no flutter) to 10 (max flutter).
Filter [FILTER]
Controls the filter characteristics to simulate tape recorder frequency response. As you increase the filter value, you’ll hear a more pronounced tape tone.
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).
