From the game changing B9 and C9 Organ Machines to the KEY9 Electric Piano Machine and MEL9 Tape Replay Machine, EHX gives you the sounds of enough legendary keyboards to fill a stage and then some!

Each polyphonic pedal provides a unique collection of classic sounds in a simple plug-in-and-play package. No modifications, special pickups or MIDI implementation is required, and tracking is impeccable.

Whether you want to cook up some hot Green Onions, lay down a cool Riders on the Storm style groove, take a trip to Strawberry Fields or spend some time at the House of the Rising Sun, EHX has the keys!

B9 Organ Machine
With 9 presets that were finely tuned to emulate the most legendary organs from the ‘60s and beyond, the B9 Organ Machine will transform your guitar or keyboard. Control the instrument’s signature percussive click and sweet modulation. Blend your dry signal to create lush layers. Enough tonewheel and combo organ inspiration to light your fire and cook up some green onions!


C9 Organ Machine
The C9 Organ Machine springboards off the revolutionary B9 to mine another rich vein of classic gold and provide players with nine more definitive organ and keyboard sounds. The C9 will transform your instrument into a convincing full body, electric organ or vintage electronic keyboard. For each preset chosen, it also provides precise control over important elements of that sound’s sonic fingerprint like percussive click, modulation, attack/sustain, drawbar setting or high frequency content. Blend your dry signal to create beautiful layers. Lovers of classic organ and keyboard rejoice!


KEY9 Electric Piano Machine
Expanding the powerful trilogy forged by the B9 and C9 Organ Machines, the new KEY9 emulates the world’s most coveted electric pianos and more. With 9 presets, you can transform your axe and lay down a cool “Riders on the Storm” style groove or some hot funk ala “What’d I Say!” Take it from Mike Matthews who says: “You’ll dig the way the KEY9 turns you into a Rhodes Scholar!”


MEL9 Tape Replay Machine
The polyphonic MEL9 uses the same extraordinary technology as the B9, C9 and KEY9 to transform your axe and resurrect the sound of vintage tape-based keyboards.
