History

The Pitchy is born of succesive ideas:

  • Recall all Whammy presets (Shallow & Deep included) on Eventide H9 by using only one preset (Pitchflex algorithm)
  • Use it with your expression pedal calibrate as you want
  • Recreate Ricochet effect with footswitch when you don't want to use an expression pedal
  • Make it works with all digitech Whammy with MIDI and all modes included (classic/chords for WH5/WHBass and Drop Tune for WHDT). Now, you can rack your whammy without losing the cool encoder scrolling sound :)
  • Create a Sequencer with edition and tap tempo (24 presets) 


As you can read it's a strong and very versatile tool.

Devices

Here are the targeted devices:

  • Eventide H9 or PitchFactor
  • Digitech Whammy 4
  • Digitech Whammy 5/Bass
  • Digitech Whammy DT



As the original Digitech Whammy 4 only contains 17 presets, Pitchy recreates the 4 missing presets from Whammy5.

Digitech Whammy plug and play

Setup is easy when Pitchy is using with a Digitech Whammy if you have never touched the Midi channels Receive. Plug your Midi cable from Pitchy to Whammy, connect your expression pedal. You may need to calibrate it, then you are ready to use Pitchy and have fun.

Eventide H9/Pitchfactor

EvenMidi Eventide H9 Midi controller Standard mode

Pitchy will call an Eventide preset number when engaged. You will have to set this preset number to the PitchFlex algorithm according to Pitchy notice. You will need to set Expression pedal to Midi PitchBend. Once the settings achieved you will don't need to touch it anymore.

Expression pedal - Ricochet

Pitchy can be used with a standard Expression Pedal. You can also replace it by using footswitch in Ricochet Mode (the up and down speed are adjustable). If no expression pedal is plugged, Pitchy sends max value (very cool for players who don't wanto to use an expression pedal or a small rig). The expression pedal is still sending Midi CC when Pitchy is off. That means you don't need to use a specific expression pedal for Pitchy if you already use one for your H9. Here is how works the Ricochet effect. Leds represent the expression pedal position. Speed up and speed down are customizables:

Sequencer

The Sequencer included is very funny to use.

If you're a Pink Floyd fan (On the run - Dark Side of the Moon) or Muse fan (Map of the Problematique - Black Holes and Revelations) you know how cool can be a sequencer. If you don't understand, the Pitchy sequencer will change the Pitch every step. If you play 1 note, you will hear a melody of 8, 12 or 16 notes according to your preset choice. The sequencer is chromatic and cover -24 to +24 semi-tones. You can use it in standard mode on/off with footswitch or Ricochet to only play the sequence one time if the footswitch is pressed. The switch encoder hide a Tap tempo from 30 to 255 bpm.



Tips: Each sequence is stored for all devices. It means that the same preset can be playable by Digitech Whammy4, 5, Bass, DT or Eventide H9, Pitchfactor. Pretty cool right ?

Info: if you use a Digitech Whammy 4, the preset changing time is not negligible. If your sequence change from -24 to +24 semi-tones or even from -1 to +1 semi-tone, the changing preset may result on a delayed note. Just stay on the same preset to avoid that problem (0 to +24 or 0 to -24). No problem for other Whammy or H9.

Customize your sequences

Sequencer is divided in 3: 8th,12th and 16th notes to cover most music case. You can edit a preset and try it before storing. It's easy and funny to edit. The result is very inspiring.

Midi Out

Connect the Pitchy directly to your Eventide/Digitech Midi In or in your Midi In main Midi controller set to Midi Thru.
