Electro-Harmonix tells us that their new STRING9 String Ensemble transforms a guitar tone into nine different orchestral and string synth sounds and requires no special pickups, MIDI or instrument modifications. They say that, using the same technology powering all EHX 9 Series pedals, the STRING9 creates fully polyphonic tones that pay tribute to some of the most iconic string synthesizers, and now features EHX's signature Freeze effect on 3 of the presets.
A rotary switch allows the user to select the sound of their choice, as follows:
The pedal is equipped with independent Effect and Dry volume controls so players can precisely tune their mix at the Effects output jack, plus a Dry output jack that outputs the input signal at unity gain at all times.
Controls 1 and 2 have been designed to adjust parameters for each of the nine programs optimized to make each sound useable and flexible.
The STRING9 String Ensemble comes equipped with an EHX 9V power supply.
