Eventide announced an upgrade program for owners of the H8000, H8000A or Orville. Until August 31, 2006, users can upgrade to the H8000FW (pictured) Ultra-Harmonizer effects processor at a reduced price. The upgrade is available through Eventide’s Website.
The H8000FW offers 1,687 preset Eventide algorithms and features Monolithic Tandem, which allows both processors to operate together, facilitating large, complex algorithms, including 5.1 reverb and effects or up to eight channels of discrete processing up to 24-bit/96 kHz. The H8000FW also includes 20 MIDI Virtual Rack preset algorithms featuring up to five effects processors ganged together with real-time MIDI control, each optimized for voice, guitar or percussion.
The H8000FW is capable of interfacing directly with a computer-based recording system. It features twelve channels of digital audio I/O via AES/EBU, four channels of S/PDIF, eight channels of ADAT and FireWire. In addition, the H8000FW incorporates four channels of analog I/O with a dynamic range of >110 dB.

The H8000FW also includes PC and Mac OS X graphic preset development tools.
