Eventide H8000FW Effects Processor

The Eventide H8000FW Effects Processor is a programmable, multi-channel, multipurpose, 96kHz-capable, dual or monolithic digital signal processor (DSP), and 24 bit digital audio signal processor with UltraShifter capability. The H8000FW offers 4 channels of pristine analog I/O combined with 8 channels of AES/EBU, ADAT, and S/PDIF I/O.

The Eventide H8000FW Effects Processor is the Eventide's most powerful effects processor ever. Featuring 1,800 post-production and music effects preset-algorithms, never before has Eventide unleashed so much power for your creative endeavors.

The Eventide H8000FW offers four channels of pristine analog I/O combined with eight channels of AES/EBU, ADAT, and S/PDIF I/O. New FireWire I/O now allows direct connection to your Mac or PC so you can directly patch 24-bit audio to and from the eight inputs and outputs.

The analog inputs feature either guitar-friendly ¼" hi impedance input jacks or XLRs. The Eventide H8000FW also offers remotely switchable true bypass.

Digital Effects Workstation - Create Your Own Algorithms

With the Eventide H8000FW you will run out of ideas before you run out of DSP power. With Eventide's catalog of over 230 effects modules, you can create effects never before thought of either from the front panel or using the supplied development tools for PC or OS X. Whether creating your own unique signature effect or dialing up one of Eventide's studio standard effects from the plethora of preset-algorithms, you will never run out of creative possibilities.

Post-Production And Broadcast Essentials - The Complex Made Simple

The Eventide H8000FW is chock full of Eventide's best post-production effects, including: CB Radio, Cellular Phone, Long Distance, Random Dialer, Off Hook!, Real Dialer, Megaphone, Shortwave Radio, Traffic Report, Radio, Intercom, Public Address, Fries With That?, Office Intercom, Sound Truck, Talking Dashboard, Clock Radio, Bullhorn, Airplane Background, Jet Flybys, TankAttack, Mortar Shells, Stormwatch, TV in Next Room, Boom Box, to name a bunch.

Also included are templates for eight precision delays for multichannel video post applications, and tools specifically designed to facilitate 5.1 frame rate conversion and its associated problem of pitch correction, along with a dedicated channel for time code delay.

Control Freak?

The Eventide H8000FW offers everything you need to control its parameters and functions from a remote. If you are on stage, the Eventide H8000FW offers full MIDI control or analog control. ¼" inch TRS jacks accept up to two external foot pedals, up to six external foot switches, or a combination.

5.1 Reverb And Effects Extraordinaire

The Eventide H8000FW is packed with 5.1 halls, chambers, rooms, booths, ambient spaces, and plates, as well as a full tool kit of multichannel effects. Included are eight individually adjustable sets of straight delays, modulated delays, ribbon delays, reverse delays, panning delays, diatonic shifters, flangers, EQs, phasers, tremolos, and filters.

And Now Midi Virtual Racks - Stacked Effects With Instant Program Change

The Eventide H8000FW offers twenty MIDI Virtual Rack preset-algorithms, featuring up to five full-blown effect processors ganged together. Each preset offers ten different tweaks which can be programmed, stored, and controlled in real time through MIDI. Up to forty-five different parameters can be controlled with one MIDI control message. Individually optimized for guitar, vocals, or percussion and designed with performance in mind. Single effects blocks are also offered as separated presets so that effect chains can be assembled using VSIG.

Oodles Of Sample/Delay Memory

The Eventide H8000FW offers 174 seconds of mono or 87 seconds of stereo, leaving you plenty of time for looping and flying in choruses. It can be used in conjunction with the arsenal of effects. The Eventide H8000FW offers fast, precise triggering.

The Long And The Short Of It - 8 Channels of Time Compression/Expansion

The Eventide's Timesqueeze® algorithm has been proven in the demanding arena of broadcast production. If you need to time compress or expand your 5.1 audio for an HD broadcast, the Eventide's new phase-locked 8 channel Timesqueeze is fast, simple, and sounds great.

Ultrashifter™ - the Apex of Pitch Manipulation

The Eventide H8000FW incorporates Eventide's most advanced pitch shifter optimized for the human voice. The UltraShifter's real-time adaptive resynthesis allows for unmatched modification of vocal timbre. So, if you are changing gender or going for something completely bizarre, the Eventide have got you covered.
