The First Time Machine
Building on the legacy of the H910 pitch shifter, the H949 was Eventide’s first de-glitched pitch-shifter. Produced from 1977 - 1984, it introduced MicroPitch which used a proprietary single-sideband modulation technique for precise control of small pitch shifts. The H949 also offered unique flange, reverse and randomized pitch effects.
Here’s how it was described when first introduced:
"a combination digital delay line, pitch changer, and all-around special effects unit. The TIME REVERSAL feature is entirely new. When used as a variable-speed tape recorder, the Harmonizer® is capable of shortening or lengthening a piece of program material to fit a given time slot without altering the pitch."
Popularized by Jimmy Page (as the only piece of digital gear to grace his rig) and cherished by Suzanne Ciani the H949’s full feature set is recreated in this plug-in. From basic engineering and sound sculpting tasks to demonic space robot creations; H949 is built to inspire.
- Randomized and reversed delays.
- Micropitch for small pitch intervals.

- Combination digital delay, pitch changer, and all around special effects unit.
