Eventide, the trailblazing audio effects company that invented many iconic sounds, just announced a sequel to its most forward-thinking effects pedal ever.
One of the biggest criticisms of Eventide’s years-old H9 Harmonizer pedal was not its amazing array of effects or its build quality but the fact that you could only use one effect at a time. The H90 explodes that limitation, adds powerful new hardware, and—with a bright OLED screen and an array of knobs and buttons, it looks a lot easier to use, too.
“They had created algorithms that combined certain effects, but you were limited to them and couldn’t just combine your favorites. Now, with the ability to run two algorithms in series or parallel, you can select your favorite effects and use them together. There are no more limitations,” guitarist, musician, and electronics engineer Don East told Lifewire via email.
