Ancient technology. You want the H9000... proper clever stuff in that. :D
And an SMPS power section so no acoustic transfomer hum at all, guaranteed! H9000 Review
To be fair, the Eclipse has an SMPS as well... but the core design is over twenty years old now. Original Eclipse Review 2001V4 Eclipse Review 2011
Perhaps a more cost-effective solution to consider is the native H3000 plugin:https://www.soundonsound.com/news/eventide-h3000-goes-native
Then again, you'll have decided it's all rubbish by tomorrow night and will have become enamoured with some wacky guitar pedal instead... :lol: :wtf:
I’d still have my H3000 if it wasn’t for the hum, it really is a deal breaker, I’m afraid nothing about the unit makes that worthwhile putting up with, and how it was allowed to happen is beyond me. If you’re in a big studio and it’s buried in a massive rack then you might just not notice it among all the other control room "noise" going on, but in a home studio, right in front of you, forget it.
I don’t want an H9, or the pedals, the H9000 was considered, but I was scared off by real world user reports of bugs and an awkward UI and the fact it’s massively over priced for what it is.
There’s a certain magic in the early Eventide sound that goes beyond my usual chaotic gear searching Hugh, I've owned H910's, 949’s, and H3000’s, those have all got it, but for various reasons, either broke, or had some annoying fault develope, reliability isn’t-wasn’t their strong point, and now, I’d steer clear of those old units, going for stupid prices too.
