The Electro-Harmonix STRING9 String Ensemble transforms a guitar tone into nine different string ensemble and string synthesizer sounds while requiring no special pickups, MIDI or instrument modifications. Using the same technology powering all EHX 9 Series pedals, the STRING9 creates fully polyphonic tones that pay tribute to the most iconic string synthesizers and re-create the sounds of live string ensembles. The STRING9 is the first 9 Series pedal to feature the signature EHX Freeze effect on 3 of the presets to sample and hold notes and chords with infinite sustain.

A rotary switch on the STRING9 allows the player to select the sound of their choice, as follows:
SYMPHONIC: Re-creates the sound of a large symphony orchestra and features an octave down effect on the lower range of the guitar for a full sound
JUNE-O: Emulates the Juno® analog string synthesizer sound
PCM: Sound of a small string section sampled by a vintage PCM keyboard
FLOPPY: Emulates the sound of an Orchestron® optical disc playback sampler
AARP: Emulates the classic ARP Solina® string synthesizer
CREWMAN: Emulates the Crumar Performer® analog string and brass synthesizer
ORCH FREEZE: Orchestral sound with EHX Freeze effect
SYNTH FREEZE: String synthesizer sound with EHX Freeze effect
VOX FREEZE: Mellotron® choir and strings sound with EHX Freeze effect
The pedal is equipped with independent Effect and Dry volume controls so players can precisely tune their mix at the Effects output jack, plus a Dry output jack that always outputs the input signal at unity gain.
Controls 1 and 2 have been designed to adjust specific parameters for each of the nine programs adding usability and flexibility to each sound.

The EHX STRING9 String Ensemble comes equipped with an EHX 9V power supply, is available now, and features a U.S. List Price of $247.10.
This pedal looks great but does it contain any presets, would love to use it live but would not want to fiddle with settings between songs!
Thanks for the idea. I was thinking what to by for my nephew. I will take it on account.
