The Eventide H8000FW Effects Processor provides unprecedented power with more than 1,800 post-production and music effects preset-algorithms to put creativity at your fingertips. The H8000FW offers four channels of pristine analog I/O combined with eight channels of AES/EBU, ADAT, and S/PDIF I/O.

The H8000FW also offers remotely switchable true bypass.
Some of the features which are quickly becoming post-production and broadcast essentials are full MIDI control or analog control, the capability to create your own algorithms with supplied development tools for PC and Mac, an insane assortment of post-production sound effects, eight individually adjustable sets of straight delays, modulated delays, ribbon delays, reverse delays, panning delays, diatonic shifters, flangers, EQs, phasers, tremolos, and filters.
