    Got my Synth 9 today

    Tracking: Some of the synths track to Low E perfectly ... all the synths track pretty consistently to low A as advertised.

    The the 2 main settings knobs def effect tracking, some synths much more than others.

    I have a EHX Pitchfork (upper octave) in front of the Synth 9 & a dirt pedal & revert/delay after.
    You can get some very convincing keys sounds going.

    I'll try to shoot some video in the morning.

    Here it is warts & all. I messed with it last night for about 10 mins & shot this video this morning so this video is certainly not rehearsed in any way.

    I def like the Synth 9 a lot .... it is not perfect but very usable IMHO

    I'm going to do another video after I use the synth 9 for a while. I have been messing around with it while waiting for this video to process & upload & the Synth 9 combined with a MS60B & Pitchfork makes for a lot of possibilities. There is a little bit of this on the video. :)

    How low will it track clean?

    Saw your answer in your other thread. Maybe you should merge the two threads

    It's up, he made another thread about it. Sounds cool to me, can't tell how low he's playing sometimes though so it's hard to pick out the tracking quality.

    I'm going to make another video after I have a few days with the Synth 9 .. this video was pretty much a cold turkey run.

    OBX & EHX Mini Track down to low Db (I tune down a 1/2 step -Dtuner) pretty much all settings. The others depends on the settings. Also these 2 synths are not effected as much if your playing is not exactly precise.

    All the synths Track very well but if your sloppy you will hear weirdness. You can hear some of that on the video when my playing was sloppy.

    That's the case with most of the synth pedals I think. My playing is cleaning up pretty quickly as I'm practicing with my microsynth. Keeping the strings muted berween notes is essential to make it sound like a keyboard.

    Thanks for posting the video by the way.
