Eventide Unveils the H90 Harmonizer Pedal
Eventide has launched a new flagship pedal with the H90 Harmonizer. Building upon their H9, the new unit features 62 effects with a comprehensive I/O and flexible routing for a wide palette of sounds.
“Along with the iconic reverbs, delays, modulation, and pitch shifting effects of the H9 Max, the H90 offers 10 new powerful algorithms, including state-of-the-art, fast-tracking, and warble-free Polyphonic Pitch Shifting using Eventide’s proprietary SIFT (Spectral Instantaneous Frequency Tracking) technology,” the company writes. The six H90-only algorithms include Prism Shift, Even-Vibe, Wormhole, Head Space, Bouquet Delay, and WeedWacker.
In addition to new sounds, the H90’s front panel has been dialed in for more hands-on control and parameter feedback through five push knobs, seven LED buttons, and a hi-resolution OLED display. “Two large push knobs allow players to switch between SELECT, BANK, and PERFORM modes with ease,” they explain. “In PERFORM mode, players have six programmable footswitches. Functions like tap tempo, preset, insert bypass, or momentary states can be mapped and used to engage options like reverb freeze, pitch flex or delay repeat, while multiple instantaneous parameter changes can be made with three HotSwitches.”
The Eventide H90 Harmonizer Pedal is available for preorder at $899.
