Eventide H9000



Next Generation Harmonizer®

The H9000 continues Eventide's unbroken tradition of delivering industry-leading signal processing power to the pro audio community. The culmination of a multi-year development cycle, the H9000 features 8x the processing power of the H8000 and a huge array of I/O options, as well as network capability. 

The multichannel processing power of the H9000 makes it a suitable platform for surround sound and for processing several tracks of audio simultaneously. In addition, the H9000 introduces the concept of FX Chains which allows users to connect any set of four effects with flexible routing. FX Chains can be created to act as a voice channel, a guitar 'pedal board,' a modular synth with effects, etc.

Emote - H9000 Remote Control Software

The H9000's remote control application, emote, is available for users working 'in the box' or over an audio network. A version of emote, with limited functionality, is currently available as a stand-alone application for Mac and as a plug-in for ProTools, AU and VST. The full-featured version, set for delivery in early 2019, will also run on a Windows PC.

The Next Step

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 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. But the SP2016 was designed as a general-purpose processor, and, as a consequence, new and innovative effects like shimmer, band delay, timescramble 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 flagship models were the most powerful rackmount processors 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.
