We had the Eventide H9 around for a little while, it's an inspiring effect - on synths, the Shimmer algorithm is hard to beat, if you want that massive, blooming, ambient sound (I know we do). But the H9 has a lot more to offer. Designed in a guitar pedal format, it has DSP to give you all of the Time Factor/Mod Factor and Space Pedal effect algorithms, plus several other classic and off-the-wall effects.
We had a visit from Source Distribution's Andy Bensley - the guitar guy who took us through what the Eventide H9 can do for the guitarist. Integration into a live rig with remote editing vai built-in Bluetooth and additional foot control options make it a pretty flexible.
