Up Close: Eventide

45 Years of Sound Pioneering: Celebrating their 45-year anniversary in 2016, Eventide has consistently pioneered unprecedented methods of bending and layering sound. Revolutionizing the industry with their H910 Harmonizer and Instant Phaser, their world renowned “Eventide Sound” consists of pristine delay, lush reverbs and pitch shifting effects. Before they introduced the H910—whose devotees have included Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, Tony Visconti and Brian Eno—experimenting with pitch shifting and delay required multiple effects, tape machines and hands on effort. The H910 put the power of these tools in a single unit, opening a rich palette of sounds via combining these effects.

The H9 Runs All of Eventide’s Stompbox Effects: As technology advanced, Eventide’s drive for exploration inspired a more portable format for their world class effects: the stompbox. Their hit TimeFactor, Pitch- Factor, ModFactor and Space units pushed the boundaries of digital effects pedals. The award-winning Eventide H9 combines their renowned delay, pitch shifting, modulation, filtering and reverb algorithms, along with new saturation effects, into a single sleek unit. Running all of the company’s stompbox effects, the H9’s multi-effects guitar pedals feature a one knob user interface which allows easy effect editing and preset selection. The H9 comes in three models: the regular H9 (featuring a “greatest hits” of effects traditionally associated with Eventide); the Max, with every Stompbox effect included in the pedal; and the Core model, which functions like a second unit to share and multiply effects with.
