Eventide H9 Sculpt: Anyone actually using it?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Flabzilla, Feb 3, 2017.

  1. There isn't much I can find re this algo via the TB search; it appears to have sunk without a trace. I have a preset which is a low level overdrive I guess you would call it, and it sounded good to me the couple of times I've used it with a band.

    Do any other H9 owners use it?

    I think it's a great. Fun to use and experiment with.

    the filter sounds are better than stuff in modfactor IMO

  4. Is the distortion usable for you?

    I like it more than I liked the aftershock, but I haven't really gigged any presets

    I own a SA Aftershock and it's sitting in a box now, probably going to sell it. Sculpt is very useful for me for all kinds of overdrive/distortion sounds. I absolutely love being able to use an expression pedal with it to dial in the amount of drive I want on the fly. (You can see the range I sweep through in the pic below).

    I also use the EQ+Compressor algorithm quite a bit. Use the expression pedal to control the amount of compression...

    I also slightly modified the stock settings in "Wahvolver" for my own use. I do think the filters are well done, if you're into that sort of thing. I don't need to play with that for my band's stuff, however.

  8. You're getting some value from Scuplt by the look of it.

    I owned an Aftershock briefly; the turn off for me was the neuro app.

    Yes. The neuro app is horrible by comparison. Bluetooth to a PC for serious editing or ipad/iphone for some tweaking... soooo much better!

    I had the opposite reaction. Sculpt to me was great, but the Aftershock blew it out of the water in regards to options and tone. But that is helped by the fact that I had another SA pedal and a Hub.

  11. I guess that you don't mind delving into the neuro app. There is certainly heaps of options buried in there.

    The Neuro app is quite cumbersome to me, but the Hub Manager software works great for managing presets on the Aftershock.
