The unit comes bundled with 45 effect algorithms and over 500 factory presets.

Little Ferry, NJ (November 26, 2013) -- Eventide unveiled the ultimate addition to the acclaimed H9 Harmonizer stompbox line: H9 MAX. Available now, the H9 MAX comes pre-loaded with all the effects from each of Eventide’s acclaimed TimeFactor, ModFactor, PitchFactor, and Space stompboxes, including the new Looper, plus all H9 exclusive algorithms in perpetuity at no additional cost. H9 MAX comes bundled with 45 effect algorithms and over 500 factory presets. H9 MAX is chock full of Eventide’s handpicked algorithms of boundary smashing effects heard on hit records spanning over four decades.

H9 MAX, a studio processor shrunk down to fit into a stompbox. It features a simple, one-knob user interface and is fully-featured as a standalone stompbox. Using H9 MAX with the included powerful H9 Control app for Windows, OSX, or iOS wirelessly via Bluetooth, makes creating and managing presets, and live control of multiple H9s a snap. H9 MAX owners can share these algorithms with up to four additional H9s on a single Eventide.com account.

“The H9 MAX is the ultimate bundled H9 for those who want it all,” said Ray Maxwell, Eventide’s VP of sales and marketing. “H9 MAX is a perfect combination with a couple of H9 Cores for a killer Eventide rig that packs maximum flexibility and the huge Eventide sound in a compact, cost-effective set-up.”

An upgrade path to H9 MAX from H9 or H9 Core will be announced in early 2015.

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
