Electro-Harmonix SYNTH9 polyphonic Synthesizer pedal for guitar

See YouTube video:

The polyphonic SYNTH9 Synthesizer Machine transforms your guitar or bass with 9 presets that were precisely tuned to emulate the most sought after, vintage synthesizer sounds ever! From searing lead synths to spacey synth pads and deep, funky, synth bass grooves, it’s all accessible.
The SYNTH9 is also super easy to use with DRY volume, SYNTH volume, CTRL1 and CTRL2 knobs that provide precise control over each preset’s parameters.
If you dig the kind of classic synth sounds made famous on recordings by groups like ELP, EVH, Kraftwerk, Joy Division, P-Funk, Peter Gabriel and more, we think you’ll love the SYNTH9.

    Tracks well
    That Subdivisions bit... uhh... yuck.   :)
     
    Roland SY-300 is 3x the cost... but it's a much more capable unit for those wanting to play synth from guitar.

    EHX's digital tracking has always been very good.

    I've an original version HOG that's years old and tracks guitar really well and with minimal latency, just a few milliseconds on low notes because it needs a few waveform cycles to work out the pitch. Their more recent stuff seems to do an even better job.

    Sonar Platinum 64bit, Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit, I7 3770K Ivybridge, 16GB Ram, Gigabyte Z77-D3H m/board,
    ATI 7750 graphics+ 1GB RAM, 2xIntel 520 series 220GB SSDs, 1 TB Samsung F3 + 1 TB WD HDDs, Seasonic fanless 460W psu, RME Fireface UFX, Focusrite Octopre.
    Assorted real synths, guitars, mandolins, diatonic accordions, percussion, fx and other stuff.

    i am finding that my current FX set up for my guitar is great for making synthy otherworldly stuff.  i have the Synth9 going into EHX's Superego (for freezing sounds & glissando) going into EHX's The Blurst (Modulator Filter, with an expression pedal plugged in) going into a Boss digital delay (usually on the "reverse" setting).  lately, i have even been preferring my acoustic guitar going into this setup.
    but if i just want my guitar to play my soft synths, i use Jam Origin's MIDI Guitar 2.

    3.5 Ghz AMD 6-Core/16 gigs RAM, Roland Quad-Capture, Win 10, Sonar Platinum x64, Komplete 10, z3ta+, Z3TA+ 2, Rapture, Maschine 2.61 (MKI & Jam), Ibanez Git, Melodyne 4 Studio, Ozone 4, Jam Origin MIDI Guitar 2, Fender acoustic guitar w/TronicalTune Plus installed, etc
