Pedal Power for the Desktop

H9 Plug-in Series Bundle brings all the power of the H9 Harmonizer stompbox to desktop, featuring 11 effects from the unit as plug-ins


24 November 2020

Eventide Audio introduces the H9 Plug-in Series Bundle, bringing DAW users a powerful collection of iconic effects from the H9 Harmonizer Effects Processor. The H9 Harmonizer – a complete pedalboard in one stompbox – is relied on by artists ranging from St. Vincent to Imagine Dragons to Carlos Santana to Suzanne Ciani to Peter Frampton. Built for the modern producer, the H9 Plug-in Series Bundle for Windows and Mac OS X computers is made up of 11 key effects from the award-winning H9 Effects Processor. 

Individually, each of the effects in the H9 Plug-in Series Bundle offers a range of sonic options around specialised functions. Combined, the H9 Bundle is a complete toolkit for sonic expression and manipulation. Eventide’s Blackhole offers expansive control to exploit ambient reverb as a creative effect. Classic hardware effects are replicated and expanded far beyond mere emulation with the spring reverb tank reborn in Spring, and the full range of control and sounds expected from a physical Leslie cabinet and more in Rotary Mod. ShimmerVerb packages the production technique of paired pitch-shift and reverb with effect-optimised control parameters. Also combined-effect plug-ins, MangledVerb feeds a tailored stereo reverb into a distortion algorithm, while TriceraChorus pairs classic bucket-brigade-delay style chorusing with Eventide’s MicroPitch detuning. Undulator adds sustain, shape and motion with the combination of two multi-tap delays, two detuned voices, and an FM modulated tremolo. CrushStation offers a huge range of distortion effects by building on stereo overdrive/distortion with the addition of three-band EQ, compression, upper and lower octave mixing and the sound signature of failing vintage analog hardware. UltraTap is a uniquely versatile multi-tap delay effect, MicroPitch allows fine-tuning of left and right delay channels (and doubles as a mainstay delay), and Crystals combines twin reverse pitch shifters with reverse delays and reverb.

All H9 Series plugins feature the groundbreaking RIBBON control, which lets users sweep the effect between two different settings of any combination of controls. RIBBON can be automated as well as MIDI controlled. Several of the H9 Bundle plug-ins incorporate other H9 performance buttons – Hotswitch, Freeze, Flex and Swirl.

The plug-ins in the H9 Bundle double as studio quality effects and live performance tools. The bundle comes with over 500 presets across all plugins, including artist, engineer and producer presets by Richard Devine, Matt Lange, Vernon Reid, Chris Carter, Sasha, Flood & Alan Moulder, Damian Taylor, Black Violin, Nick Hook, Dalek, Lady Starlight and more.

The H9 Plug-in Series Bundle for OS X and Windows supports VST, AAX, and AU plug-in protocols for compatibility with every DAW. Valued at over $1100 if purchased separately, this collection of choice Eventide effects is available for immediate download at a special introductory MSRP of $299 through January 4, 2021, and $499 thereafter. The H9 Plug-In Series Bundle is free for registered H9 Max owners through the end of 2020. Upgrades and crossgrades from the Eventide Anthology XI are also available.
