Eventide virtually invented the rackmount multi-effects processor in the early 1980s and has controlled the high ground ever since. Now, the company's flagship H9000R represents the definitive evolutionary pinnacle of the species.
The fruition of a multi-year development program, the H9000R leverages the latest advances in technology, boasting the staggering signal processing power of 16 DSP engines powered by four quad-core ARM processors.
There's a massive arsenal of onboard effects, and they all sound amazing. Immerse your audience in breathtaking surround sound reverbs, pristine and three-dimensional. Blow them away with jaw-dropping effects like shimmer, timescramble, band delay, and vocoding. Loaded with multichannel processing, extensive I/O, and optional network connectivity, it's clear that the H9000R is another big-league heavyweight from Eventide.
The Eventide H9000R is loaded with the same robust features and powerful performance as the H9000, sans the front-panel controls.
Flexibility for modern workflows
The H9000R is Eventide's flagship product, designed for deployment in high-end recording, mastering, and post-production studios. With eight channels of analog audio I/O, plus AES/EBU, ADAT, and USB supporting 16 bidirectional audio channels, the H9000R is completely flexible, allowing you to easily integrate it into modern DAW-based workflows. For multi-room facilities, it even offers the option of connecting to industry-standard IP-based networks such as MADI, Dante, and Ravenna.
Multichannel processing for stunning surround
Multichannel processing makes the H9000R eminently suitable for use in world-class post-production facilities, where effects can be simultaneously and individually processed and routed to front left or right, center, surround, or LFE channels. With surround sound reverb, you can create immersive environments that can bring a motion picture scene to life.
FX Chains and remote app
The H9000R's FX Chains feature allows you to connect any set of four effects with flexible routing. You can create an FX Chain to act, for instance, as a voice channel, a modular synthesizer with effects, or even a guitar pedalboard. If you're working in-the-box or over an audio network, the H9000R’s remote control application, emote, is available as a standalone app for Mac and PC, and as an AU, VST, and Pro Tools plug-in.
Eventide: pioneering digital effects for over four decades
In the 1970s, Eventide put digital effects on the map with their groundbreaking Digital Delay and Harmonizer units. In the early '80s came the first rackmount multi-effects processor, the SP2016. Every studio worth its salt had to have one for its reverbs alone, much less for the other one-of-a-kind effects on tap. The SP2016’s successor, the H3000, introduced a cornucopia of new effects and was the must-have rackmount processor of the '90s. The H4000 and H8000 followed, introducing the concept of surround sound reverb. Now the H9000 and H9000R take the baton as Eventide's flagship processors. A new chapter in multi-effects history begins.
