    Comments about Electro-Harmonix SYNTH9 Synthesizer Machine Pedal:

    Once again, EH has a home run. The whole "9" series is setting a new standard for guitar synths.
    Not only are the sounds perfect emulations of the synths they represent, but the interaction with the guitar is new and different from a typical GR-55 or similar guitar synth.
    These devices behave differently if you're playing chords from playing single notes. So there's a level of surprise that comes into play as you learn it's response.
    And the subtle variations that "control 1 & 2" offer give each of the 9 voices individuality.
    These things go beyond making sounds to being an inspiration to new compositions...
    Rugged, all-metal construction and dependable performance round out another classic from EH.
    All I can say is: "MORE, PLEASE!"

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix SYNTH9 Synthesizer Machine Pedal:

      Works as advertised. Has some really cool sounds and 2 outputs (clean and synth) means I can keep playing the guitar parts too. As others have stated, the switch feels kinda cheap, but so far its holding up.

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix SYNTH9 Synthesizer Machine Pedal:

        I love the sound this pedal puts out. Awesome in sound, but poor in quality of components. My foot switch hung up almost immediately. I thought I would replace it, but then I also found that you could not match your guitar volume to the unit. When I clicked out of it, my guitar was MUCH louder. No amount of tweaking worked. A shame. Loved it otherwise. Returned it to wait for the company to repair their design. I would buy again with a better switch and better volume control. Possibly good for the studio.

        When working without a keyboard this pedal is a must. All the sounds from the 70's up to the present to expand the sound of your band.

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix SYNTH9 Synthesizer Machine Pedal:

        I figure to spend considerable time learning the controls to tweak sounds that appeal to me for the application I have for it. The saw tooth wave form seems to be omnipresent in all patches and is only slightly altered in intensity by the controls. Would be nice if the user could dial it up, down, out.
