Eventide H9000

December 12, 2016 - 03:59 am

Beans have been spilled about this lovely puppy:

 

1. Is it going to be presented in NAMM 2017?

2. Do we have an estimate regarding the price?

3. Will we be able to call up / edit algorithms within a DAW? Much like loading plugins in a channel strip?

Very excited about this :-)

H9000

December 18, 2016 - 04:15 pm

It's been a multi-year effort and  it's not yet ready for prime time. Mid to late '17 is our best estimate. We're not ready to go into detail about the planned features but, in response to your questions:

1. Is it going to be presented in NAMM 2017? No

2. Do we have an estimate regarding the price? Bit more money than an H8000. Blank front panel version should be a bit less than an H8000.

3. Will we be able to call up / edit algorithms within a DAW? Much like loading plugins in a channel strip? We're developing a remote app than can run stand-alone or as a  plugin.

VSIG

December 20, 2016 - 05:33 pm

The H9000 can have up to 16  ARM cores (16 DSPs) and lots of audio I/O. Be a terrible waste of such a huge audio processing resouce to not have VSIG (or something like it). I doubt that FCS will have VSIG support but we don't have a FCS date, so who knows?... Right now we have to focus on FCS.

Don't get me wrong, I used

December 20, 2016 - 05:37 pm

Don't get me wrong, I used Vsig a lot, and wrote the midi virtual racks and others that's on the H8000, so I do see it's advantages.

Do you intend to make this future VSig app backwards compatible with the H8000FW?

VSIG support for H9000 is current plan but as yet unscheduled.

Hi Eventide team, 

December 23, 2016 - 04:19 pm

Hi Eventide team, 

I heard that some IOS app will remote the new H9000. But will the H9000 profit a hardware remote like Evenet was for the H8000 ? 

Thanks !

From what I am reading in

December 24, 2016 - 09:07 am

From what I am reading in this thread, it sounds like the H9000 will come in multiple configurations similar to the H9's tiered hierarchy? As for the 16 ARM DSP processors, I have no frame of reference to compare that too. Can you offer safely offer one?

I just wanted to chime in as an owner/user of many of the Eventide boxes over the years (and currently still using a pair of H8000's) and say thank you to Mr. Agnello for the contributions you have made to audio.  I still remember the first time I heard the Stereo Room preset on the SP-2016 - amazing.  Just made everything sent through it sound better.

Would you be able to tell us

January 05, 2017 - 06:48 pm

Would you be able to tell us if the H9000 had upgradeable DSP's, or would we have to buy it with a fixed amount of DSP power and that would be the end of it? Perhaps factory upgrades to base unit would be possible?

I have an H3000, GTR4000 and a H8000FW, not to mention 5 H9's. An additional upgrade to the line would be terrific! I'm not to keen on soft remotes with a blank front panel, although it's clear that it's the least expensive way to handle it. Thank you for keeping the rackmount product line alive!

Excited!

January 11, 2017 - 12:46 pm

Considering selling my Orville and a few choice peices to fund this when it finally arrives.... The design update looks fairly clean, I just hope the rotary is as heavy and satisfying as on other units as it looks to be flush here?!

Quick question: I have

June 11, 2017 - 03:59 pm

Quick question: I have written about 200 of my own presets on my H8000FW, stored on a CF-card.

 

Is it going to be possible to convert those to the new H9000 if I decide to uppgrade?

H8000FW presets

June 11, 2017 - 04:15 pm

We're working on making that possible. We've created a system to confirm that the H8000 presets behave and sound the same when running on the H9000. So far, the majority test OK but there are still some that need work. The challenge comes from the fact that the H8000 is based on a fixed point DSP chip while the H9000 is ARM based. The H9000 is still a work-in-progress.

Thanks. Glad to hear that you are working on it. I currently have two H8000FW and planing to keep one of them. It would be nice to be able to convert some of the presets into the new maschine so that I don't have to start from scratch programing my own presets.

ARM? Too bad you can't just

ARM? Too bad you can't just write the app for the iPad's ARM and skip the NRE of building hardware.
