Eventide H9000 Effects Processor
The Eventide H9000 Effects Processor incorporates 4 Quad-core ARM Processors, 16 DSP Engines, 8 Channels of Analog I/O, 16-channel Bidirectional USB and massive arsenal of onboard effects for amazing sound. While loaded with multichannel processing, extensive I/O, and optional network connectivity, the H9000 offers you immerse the audience in breathtaking surround sound reverbs, pristine and three-dimensional, and blow them away with jaw-dropping effects.
The Eventide H9000 Effects Processor represents the definitive evolutionary pinnacle of the virtual rackmount multi-effects processors started by Eventide back in the early 1980s. The latest advances in technology, boasting the staggering signal processing power of 16 DSP engines powered by 4 quad-core ARM processors, the Eventide H9000 is loaded with multichannel processing, extensive I/O, and optional network connectivity.
The menus make it easy to find the best sound and dial in the right effects to the right outputs. A computer is a mere nicety with such a powerful box running the show. The Eventide H9000 really redefines what a workstation can be; there is no need for any other digital effects processor, or even any plugins for that matter, should you have the Eventide H9000 in your studio.
Flexible Effect Processor for Modern Workflows
The Eventide H9000 Effect Processor is perfect for deployment in professional recording, mastering, and post-production studios. With 8 channels of analog audio I/O, and AES/EBU, ADAT, and USB supporting 16 bidirectional audio channels, the Eventide H9000 Effects Processor allows you easily integrate it into modern DAW-based workflows. For even multi-room setups, the Eventide H9000 Effects Processor comes with the option of connection to IP-based networks like MADI, Dante, and Ravenna.
Multichannel Effects Processing for Amazing Surround
The multichannel effects processing capability makes the Eventide H9000 Effects Processor ideal for post-production facilities. The effects can be simultaneously and individually processed and routed to front left or right, center, surround, or LFE channels and the surround reverb life-like environment in your recording studio.
The Eventide H9000 Effects Processor does not mess around in terms of connectivity, either. The unit is intended to be fully modular with as many connections as you would like to add. The Eventide H9000's entire interface is laid out right in front of your eyes. You will be able to fly through the menus by using the main buttons (Parameters, Algorithms, etc.) in conjunction with the unlabeled side menu buttons that correspond to each menu shift. Placing a reverb algorithm in an effects chain is super easy by going through ALGORITHMS [main button] ? ENTER [Check button] ? TAGS [side button] ? REVERB and pick your favorite. Done!
So Many Presets!
The Eventide H9000 Effects Processor comes loaded with the latest presets and those of older ones in the factory memory to choose from. Some of these presets are holdouts from the Eventide H8000, DSP4000, and H3000, and some are hot off the press from the Eventide H9 Harmonizer®.
Presets are a good way to get started, but the H9000 has a new randomize parameters function. If you want some new spice for your favorite preset, just mix it up and see what happens.
