At the top end of the multi-year development cycle, the H9000 has four quad-core ARM processors with 16 DSP without AI / EBU, ADAT, 16 channels of USB audio and optional standard voice networks, including MADI, Dante, Ravenna, etc.
Through multichannel processing, the H9000 is a suitable platform for surround sound and multiple sound processing. at the same time. In addition, the H9000 introduces the FX CHAINS concept that allows users to connect any series of four effects with flexible routing. FX CHAINS can be created to function as a voice channel, guitar as a “pedal” or as a module synthetic effects, etc.
H9000 remote control applications are available for emote, “in the box” or users through a voice network. emote available as standalone applications for Mac and PC, as well as AU, VST and Pro Tools add-ons.
Says Eventide ‘resident fossil’ Anthony Agnello: “Audio effects designers are power-hungry souls. We have an insatiable thirst for processing power. With each advance in processing speed and storage capacity, new — often unimagined — effects become possible.“In the early Eighties, pro audio’s first rackmount multi-effects processor, the SP2016, was used by researchers and developers
“In the early Eighties, pro audio’s first rackmount multi-effects processor, the SP2016, was used by researchers and developers to create groundbreaking effects. Back then, artificial reverberation was the holy grail, and the SP2016 excelled at reverbs — both natural and unnatural, including infinite reverbs, inverse reverbs, gated reverbs, and more besides. But the SP2016 was designed as a general-purpose processor, and, as a consequence, new, innovative effects like shimmer, band delay, time scramble, and vocoding became commercially available for the first time.
“The SP2016’s successor, the H3000, was the premier rackmount processor of the Nineties and introduced a wealth of new effects. The H4000 and H8000 flagships were the most powerful rack boxes of their time and helped usher in the concept of surround sound reverb. The H9000 is ready to take its place at the pinnacle of our product line and we’re eager to discover the kinds of new effects that lie in store.”
Eventide will be demonstrating the H9000 alongside award-winning plug-ins on Booth #321 at AES New York 2017 — the 143rd International Convention — on October 18-20, Jacob J. Javits Convention Center, USA.
