Resonator

Resonator staggers 4 resonant comb filters to create ambient, arpeggiated, or reverberant sounds. Each comb filter can be tuned to ring out when you play the note selected by the respective "NOTE" knob. This creates dynamic effects that react with more or less intensity based on the harmonic content of the input audio.

Resonator Algorithm Controls
Mix [MIX]
wet/dry mixer, 100% is all wet signal.
Length [LENGTH]
Total length of the delay line. This length is split into 8 subdivisions on which the comb filters can be staggered.
Rhythm [RHYTHM]
Represents the rhythm pattern of the comb filters. Each digit indicates the subdivision on which a comb filter is positioned. “1.3.5.7” will sound like even quarter notes since the four comb filters are evenly spaced on the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th subdivisions.
Feedback [FDBCK]
The feedback level of each of the comb filters. Feedback type 1 [FB1] maintains the pattern set by the rhythm knob, whereas feedback type 2 [FB2] degrades the pattern as it repeats.
Resonance [RESNCE]
Affects how intensely the comb filters resonate. The comb filters will ring out more intensely as the resonance increases in either the positive or negative direction. Resonance set to 0 will acts as multi-tap delay without any additional resonant tones.
Reverb [REVERB]
Controls the amount of reverb in the comb filter path.
Note1 [NOTE1]
Tunes the note values that trigger each respective comb filter. When resonance is positive, all integer multiples of this frequency will resonate. When the resonance is negative, only odd multiples of this frequency will resonate. These note values also affect the high and low pass filters surrounding each comb filter. When resonance is set to 0, these knobs can still be used to filter the delays.
Note2 [NOTE2]
Tunes the note values that trigger each respective comb filter. When resonance is positive, all integer multiples of this frequency will resonate. When the resonance is negative, only odd multiples of this frequency will resonate. These note values also affect the high and low pass filters surrounding each comb filter. When resonance is set to 0, these knobs can still be used to filter the delays.
Note3 [NOTE3]
Tunes the note values that trigger each respective comb filter. When resonance is positive, all integer multiples of this frequency will resonate. When the resonance is negative, only odd multiples of this frequency will resonate. These note values also affect the high and low pass filters surrounding each comb filter. When resonance is set to 0, these knobs can still be used to filter the delays.
Note4 [NOTE4]
Tunes the note values that trigger each respective comb filter. When resonance is positive, all integer multiples of this frequency will resonate. When the resonance is negative, only odd multiples of this frequency will resonate. These note values also affect the high and low pass filters surrounding each comb filter. When resonance is set to 0, these knobs can still be used to filter the delays.
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).
