EHX pedal turns a guitar into a string synth

Electro-Harmonix presents the STRING9 string ensemble 06/17/22

Electro-Harmonix tells us that their new String ensemble STRING9 transforms a guitar tone into nine different orchestral and string synth sounds and requires no special mic, MIDI, or instrument editing. They say that using the same technology that powers all EHX 9 Series pedals, the STRING9 creates fully polyphonic sounds that pay homage to some of the most iconic string synthesizers, and now features EHX’s signature Freeze effect. EHX on 3 of the presets.

A rotary switch allows the user to select the sound of their choice, as follows:

  • Symphonic: Recreates the sound of a large symphony orchestra and features an octave down effect on the lower range of the guitar
  • June-O: emulates the sound of the Juno® analog string synthesizer
  • PCM: Sound of a small studio string section sampled by a vintage PCM keyboard
  • Floppy: Emulates the sound of an Orchestron® optical disc playback sampler
  • AARP: Emulates the classic ARP Solina® String Synthesizer
  • Crewman: Emulates the Crumar Performer® analog string and brass synthesizer
  • Orch Freeze: Orchestral sound with Freeze effect
  • Synth Freeze: String synthesizer sound with Freeze effect
  • VOX Freeze: Mellotron® chorus and strings sound with Freeze effect

The pedal is equipped with independent Effect and Dry volume controls so players can fine-tune their mix at the Effects Out jack, as well as a Dry Out jack that outputs the input signal at unity gain at any time. moment.

Knobs 1 and 2 have been designed to adjust the parameters of each of the nine optimized programs to make each sound usable and flexible.

The STRING9 String Ensemble is equipped with an EHX 9V power supply.
