Controlling H9 with wearable MIDI devices


I am new to this forum and I still have to decide whether to buy the H9, so I apologize in advance if these questions are too trivial or has been answered already.

H9 stopped receiving MIDI signals through DIN5.


My FX-Loop H9 has stopped responding to MIDI signals. 

Am I missing something? What can I do to wake up it's DIN5 ears?

The MIDI signal  is from a Keith MacMillan Softstep2 to a SoftStep Expander, into the preamp H9. The settings are below. I swapped out the MIDI cable between the H9s with no success and went from the Expander directly to the FX-Loop H9 "in", but still got no result with the FX-Loop H9. Pre-Amp H9 receives the DIN5 signal normally. The FX-Loop H9 responds fine via bluetooth but not via DIN5. 

Can I take tap tempo into H9 and send out as MIDI clock?


Hey, folks,

I've been doing a few things to get all of my pedals on my board in sync, and I have an external tap tempo I'd like to go into the H9. My pigtronix infinity looper, however, will only take a midi clock for tempo, so I'm wondering, is there a way to send the tempo out over midi on the H9 (based on the tap tempo in), and then send it to MIDI out, and if so, how would I do this?


Rose MIDI Implementation Guide

Rose MIDI Implementation

Rose supports the following MIDI functionality:
  • TRS MIDI input
  • USB MIDI input/output
  • Continuous control (CC) messages received for real-time control.
  • Program Change
  • System Exclusive (SYSEX) dump of presets and entire system state

MIDI Implementation for Eclipse


Does anyone know where documentation on the MIDI implementation for the Eclipse might be?

Please Note: I am not looking for information on how to send CCs to it and get it to respond. 

What I am lookng for is information on if it has sysex messages, what their format is, does it provide other ways to retieve its presets and write them back over MIDI, etc..?


Eclipse: External MIDI controllers are at 99.21% when CC value =64



I am trying to use external MIDI CCs to control parameters on my Eclipse. But the Eclipse only reacts to values 0 to 64, not 0 to 127. 64 results in a mod value of 99,21%. Sending a value over 64 doesn't change anything - also, the mod value never goes to a full 100% (so no luck in setting eg the range of a pitch shifter to  an octave). And of course, this also means that the (already coarse) CC range of 0-127 is even more coarse. Is there a setting somewhere that I missed to set this scaling? 

Thanks a lot for any pointers.

H9 - Using both MIDI and AUX switch concurrently



Im thinking of purchasing an AUX switch for the H9 to control bank up / down and tap tempo. Right now i have the H9 set up to receive MIDI program changes from a Disaster Area MIDI. 

Just wanted to ask if BOTH the MIDI in and AUX be used concurrently to send various commands to the H9? 



What are people looking for in a foot controller?


I'm making a MIDI foot controller (Poly Expressive, currently on Kickstarter) and I'm wondering what people think is missing with existing controllers and what features you'd want in a MIDI controller. Our big difference is it's position and pressure sensitive so you can control multiple parameters at once.

future hardware feature request


As I try to figure out how to work with midi and its limitations on my H9, it occurs to me it's such an old and clunky solution. The plugs are large, communicaiton is monodirectional unless you have 2! cables, etc. I would love to see an industry leader like Eventide innovate in this space, and offer a pair of standard USB type C ports on future products. My 2 midi equipped pedals currently offer different USB type plugs and you can't daisy chain them. That's just dumb.

H9 + Infinity Looper + midi


The H9 and the Infinity Looper are the only midi devices on my board, and I go from H9 midi out/thru to Infinity midi in. With that said, what is the right midi out/transfer mode in the H9 app? I'm trying to figure out how to sync H9 and Inifnity to the tempo I tap out on the H9. Thanks.
