    Fresh off my purchase of a Modfactor (and my continued love for my Pitchfactor), I could not find a settings thread. I'm very interested in what people are doing. These boxes can do so much I feel like I'm only scratching the surface. I plan to post some of my favorite Pitchfactor settings over the weekend.

    Also: I just posted an "Official Eventide Stompbox Club." Check it out!

    Well...no action here yet, I'll get things started.

    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "Do No Harm"
    Effect type: Harmodulator
    Tempo: On
    Wet/Dry Mix: 15
    Pitch Mix: A10+B10
    Pitch A: +1 oct
    Pitch B: +P12
    Delay A: 1/4
    Delay B: 1/8
    Depth: -1 oct
    Speed: 5/16
    Xknob: Square (Shape)
    Yknob: 20 (Feedback)
    Description:This is a nice, syncopated octave + perfect 12th echo, that I have used live multiple times in church. It's a wonderful sound for slow intros. The patch name, by the way, is simply a play on the fact that it's the first effect I created with the Harmodulator effect type.

    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "SpaceshipMode”
    Effect type: H910/H949
    Tempo: Off
    Wet/Dry Mix: 13
    Pitch Mix: A7+B10
    Pitch A: 0.998
    Pitch B: 0.990
    Delay A: 337ms
    Delay B: 590ms
    Depth Key: Modern
    Speed/Scale: Normal
    Xnob: 59 (feedback A)
    Ynob: 27 (feedback B)

    Although I’m not a delay guy this is a delay with some colorful repeats.


    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "-2+1oct+6+3”
    Effect type: Quadravox
    Tempo: Off
    Wet/Dry Mix: 40
    Pitch Mix: Center
    Pitch A: +3rd
    Pitch B: -2oct
    Delay A: no delay
    Delay B: A.B.C.D
    Depth Key: C Maj
    Speed/Scale: C Maj
    Xnob: +1oct
    Ynob: +6th

    Four harmonized notes together create this Boston based patch.


    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "Jazz Piano Comp”
    Effect type: Quadravox
    Tempo: On
    Wet/Dry Mix: 75
    Pitch Mix: Center
    Pitch A: +9th
    Pitch B: +11th
    Delay A: 1/2
    Delay B: ….ABCD
    Depth Key: C Maj
    Speed/Scale: C Maj
    Xnob: +13th
    Ynob: +2oct

    If you play a 4string like me and you always wanted to hear some out of range voicings on your higher registers this patch is only the beginning. And since most of the time doubling in jazz comping is a “no no!” (Although we break a million other rules here) you can turn the Ynob in unison or +3d.


    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "CareBearsRainbow”
    Effect type: Crystals
    Tempo: Of
    Wet/Dry Mix: 10
    Pitch Mix: A10+B10
    Pitch A: 1199c
    Pitch B: -1200c
    Delay A:2000ms
    Delay B:350
    Depth Key: 30 (Reverb)
    Speed/Scale: 48s (Decay)
    Xnob: 65 (feedback A)
    Ynob: 70 (feedback B)

    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "No Lifting allowed”
    Effect type: Synthonizer
    Tempo: Off
    Wet/Dry Mix: 50
    Pitch Mix: A2+B10
    Pitch A: 300
    Pitch B: 20
    Delay A:0.1
    Delay B:0.1
    Depth Key: 0 or 100 (Reverb)
    Speed/Scale: 0 or 1.4s (Decay)
    Xnob: sine
    Ynob: 30
    Adjust reverb to taste (if this algorithm has some musical potential to you let me know, is defiantly not a plug and play one for me).

    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "Organ 3 Octave"
    Effect type: Pitchflex
    Tempo: On
    Wet/Dry Mix: 50
    Pitch Mix: A10+B10
    Pitch A: -1 oct
    Pitch B: +1 oct
    Delay A: 1/4
    Delay B: 1/4
    Depth: 0 (Filter)
    Speed: 10 (Shape)
    Xknob: +1 oct
    Yknob: +2 oct
    Description: The title is pretty self-explanatory. It's an octave above and below, which you can "flex" to +1 and +2 octaves.

    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "2 Oct Echo"
    Effect type: Diatonic
    Tempo: On
    Wet/Dry Mix: 10
    Pitch Mix: A10+B10
    Pitch A: +1 oct
    Pitch B: +2 oct
    Delay A: 1/8
    Delay B: 1/4
    Depth: E:MAJ
    Speed: E:MAJ
    Xknob: 50 (Feedback A)
    Yknob: 40 (Feedback B)
    Description: Somewhat similar to my "Do No Harm" patch from earlier, yet sonically pretty different. The echo/delay escalates and bounces around in the upper registers. Has an organ like quality, but delayed and more ethereal. Great on guitar for muted root-5th power chords.

    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "Symmetric Detune"
    Effect type: Micropitch
    Tempo: On
    Wet/Dry Mix: 50
    Pitch Mix: A10+B10
    Pitch A: +25c
    Pitch B: -25c
    Delay A: No dly
    Delay B: No dly
    Depth: 0
    Speed: 0
    Xknob: 30 (Feedback)
    Yknob: 0 (Filter)
    Description: A "non-modulating" chorus. Sounds fantastic on bass and guitar, this is one of my go-to chorus sounds. The expression pedal/knob adjusts A/B from +/-0c to +/-50c so I can adjust depth to taste.

    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "Crystal Light"
    Effect type: Crystals
    Tempo: On
    Wet/Dry Mix: 15
    Pitch Mix: A10+B10
    Pitch A: 1210c
    Pitch B: 1190c
    Delay A: 1/4
    Delay B: 5/16
    Depth: 35 (Reverb)
    Speed: 2.2s (Decay)
    Xknob: 20 (Feedback A)
    Yknob: 20 (Feedback B)
    Description: My default version of the "Crystals" effect, this mostly adds a high-pitch shimmer.

    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "H Micro Echo"
    Effect type: H910/H949
    Tempo: On
    Wet/Dry Mix: 25
    Pitch Mix: A10+B10
    Pitch A: 0.995
    Pitch B: 1.004
    Delay A: 1/16
    Delay B: 1/64
    Depth: Modern
    Speed: Micro
    Xknob: 25 (Feedback A)
    Yknob: 32 (Feedback B)
    Description: A chorusy, modulated, echo-delay. Great for clean guitar or high register bass arpeggios.

    Unit: Pitchfactor
    Patch Name: "Power Arpeggio"
    Effect type: Diatonic
    Tempo: On
    Wet/Dry Mix: 50
    Pitch Mix: A10+B10
    Pitch A: +5th
    Pitch B: +1 oct
    Delay A: 1/8
    Delay B: 1/4
    Depth: G:MAJ
    Speed: G:MAJ
    Xknob: 59 (Feedback A)
    Yknob: 59 (Feedback B)
    Description: A power chord arpeggio with some feedback. I've used on both guitar and bass for the intro to "Our God (Is Greater)" by Chris Tomlin in church.

    Here's a song I wrote using the Resonator Algo on the H9. My set up for this is:
    Warwick Thumb5> H9> Lexicon Lambda Interface> Ableton Live 8

    All effects on the bass are from the H9. The drums came from Ableton.


    And rather than try and write out all the knob settings, I just took screen shots of the H9 control app on my Iphone.:bassist:

    ^ That's a great way to do it, perhaps when the editing software for the Factor series is released, we'll be able to do that for the other units. (I saw on a video on www.geartunes.com that this software is coming in 2014. I hope that's true.)
