The H949 Harmonizer is a comprehensive special effects tool that was first introduced by Eventide in 1979. It has since become a legendary effects processor, used by musicians such as Jimmy Page and Suzanne Ciani. The H949 offers a range of unique features, including:
- Random variable delay at a range of 0 to 25 milliseconds
- Flange, reverse, and randomized pitching effects
- A dedicated “MicroPitch” mode for double-tracking emulation
- The ability to time-reverse and pitch-change audio with the Repeat function
The H949 Harmonizer is available as a plugin for Windows 8 and later (64-bit only) and macOS 10.9 and later (64-bit only). It is compatible with AAX, AU, VST2, and VST3 hosts. A free iLok account/manager is required for authorization, but no dongle is needed to run the software. Eventide has tested the plugin with Ableton Live, Cubase, FL Studio, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, and Studio One, but it should work with any compatible host.
The H949 Harmonizer is also available as a bundle with the H949 Dual Harmonizer plugin, which recreates two H949 units running in parallel. This can be used to create doubling effects, stereo widening, and a wide variety of other interesting sounds.
