MangledVerb

While the H9 can produce many beautiful sounds, we recognize the universe is a chaotic and often violent place, so in the spirit of the yin and yang of it all, we included MangledVerb from the Eventide Eclipse.

Technically, MangledVerb feeds a non-standard stereo reverb into distortion, but sonically it can range from the light friction of a bow scraping a cello string to the mayhem of a caged beast being poked with a red hot flounder. Judicious use of the [WOBBLE] and [ODRIVE] is approved, and try small [SIZE] and short [DECAY] for some surprising sounds

MangledVerb Algorithm Controls
Mix [MIX]
wet/dry mixer, 100% is all wet signal
Decay [DECAY]
arbitrary 1-100 decay (less decay will also take away reverb attack)
Size [SIZE]
size of the reverb (try less than 15 for some great distortion sounds)
PreDelay [PREDLY]
pre-delay time in milliseconds or note-based in tempo mode
Low Band Level [LO-LVL]
pre-distortion boost/cut of low frequencies
High Band Level [HI-LVL]
pre-distortion boost/cut of high frequencies
Overdrive Distortion Type [ODRIVE]
the input level to one of two different types of distortions
Distortion Output Level [OUTPUT]
the output level of the distortion
Modulation Rate [WOBBLE]
a modulation rate that does some spooky detuning
Mid Band Level [MIDLVL]
pre-distortion boost/cut of mid frequencies
Output Level
At 0 the output level is unaffected. Increase the output level of the effect by up to 20 dB or lower by 30 dB.
TEMPO ON / TEMPO OFF
Tempo is turned ON/OFF on the H9 by simultaneously pressing the Right Footswitch and the PRESETS button. With Tempo OFF, tapping can be used to adjust delay parameter values (displayed as milliseconds or Hz). With Tempo ON, tempo is in BPM.
Active
Turn effect on or off..
HotSwitch
The Middle Footswitch can be programmed to act on the loaded Preset as a programmable controller allowing the user to switch between the normal Preset parameter values and a programmed, alternate set of parameter values. It’s like having two Presets in one.
TAP
If Tempo is ON, the display indicates the current tempo in BPM (30 to 500 BPM) while tapping and the Tap LED will blink at the BPM rate. If Tempo is OFF, the display indicates the parameter value (milliseconds for most algorithms).
