Product Description

The SYNTH9 provides everything from searing lead synths to spacey synth pads and deep, funky, synth bass grooves. The polyphonic SYNTH9 Synthesizer Machine transforms your guitar or bass with 9 presets that were precisely tuned to emulate the most sought after, vintage synthesizer sounds ever!

Electro Harmonix SYNTH9 Synthesizer Machine Pedal Features

  • Transforms the tone of your guitar or bass into that of a vintage synthesizer
  • 9 presets that were created to emulate many of the most popular synthesizer sounds ever
  • Works on guitar or bass without modifications, special pickups or MIDI implementation
  • The SYNTH9’s usable tracking range extends up to about the 23rd fret on the high-E string of a standard guitar and down to the open A-string on a bass guitar
  • Use the SYNTH9 with a B9 or C9 Organ Machine as well as the KEY9 Electric Piano Machine and MEL9 Tape Replay Machine to create your own mega-keyboard setup 
The SYNTH9 is also super easy to use with DRY volume, SYNTH volume, CTRL1 and CTRL2 knobs that provide precise control over each preset’s parameters.

If you dig the kind of classic synth sounds made famous on recordings by groups like ELP, EVH, Kraftwerk, Joy Division, P-Funk, Peter Gabriel and more, we think you’ll love the SYNTH9.

Tips on Getting Optimum Performance from the SYNTH9
    1. The SYNTH9 is generally best used as the first pedal in an effects chain. Place modulation, delay, and reverb effects after the SYNTH9. The unit will not perform well if placed in the effects loop of a guitar amp.

    2. For optimal playability, set the guitar’s pickup selector to the bridge pickup and turn the volume knob all the way up (“10”).

    3. Avoid placing a distortion or overdrive in front of the SYNTH9, which could muddy up the input signal and cause the tracking to be unstable. If you want to add overdrive or distortion, place it after the SYNTH9.

    4. The SYNTH9 has a built in compressor that is active on the synth sounds at all times. We recommend you do not insert another compressor into your signal chain while the SYNTH9 is in effect mode.

What is your opinion of this product?
This pedal takes patience. You have to learn to play it, in essence. It is also pricey! That said, it offers a wealth of timbres that can be further manipulated by pedals that follow it. Some of the parameters for certain settings seem limited in the unit itself, though. For example, though the EHX Mini setting is one of my faves, the range on the down-sweep for the filter on that preset (the “past noon” on control 1) is annoyingly limited and almost immediately goes to a cut or stab sound. But there is much to work with in this pedal and all of the presets sound awesome. It is for way more than copping Duran Duran something. I am not a fan of that 80’s cheese synth thing actually, but I just had to have the textures and possibilities this pedal offers. For some reason, using a synth emulator like this seems to me more authentic than a pedal that emulates old school organ. Not sure why. Anyway, I like the Synth 9. Glad I got it and I have a lot more experimenting to look forward to.

Another cool Electro Harmonic machine
What is your opinion of this product?
This is another very cool Electro Harmonix machine. I play rock, metal, and original music and I like having a wide array of sounds to add to my guitar sound. I have several of their pedals and they are all well made and easy to use. Weather you want to add an organ, strings, synths or even a sitar Electro Harmonix can hook you up. Very cool.

Very good at what it does
What is your opinion of this product?
It tracks well down to C on the A on bass and ok down to A But after that it is lost. it is still worth having on your board but just don't expect it to track like a Future Impact

Fun gadget ,
What is your opinion of this product?
My keyboardist complains that this has better synth sounds than his Korg. I’m not trying to steal any of his thunder but this adds a lot of new options for coloring our sound.

Excellent pedal from EHX...again!
What is your opinion of this product?
Love this pedal; also own C9 which is just as good. Tracking is really top-notch. Thought it would be slow, but it keeps up! EHX rarely disappoints and I have 3 of their pedals on my board currently.

The SYNTH 9 is an incredible new sound in your arsenal!
What is your opinion of this product?
I have owned the MEL 9 for some time now and have grown to rely upon it. I finally purchased the SYNTH 9 and WOW what fun to play. Standalone it sounds fantastic; run it through several other pedals/boxes and look-out! This is one pedal you won't regret buying!
