as common practice we won't disclose information about new products. My suggestion is that you can sleep quiet nights though. The H8000FW has life ahead!
Regarding the Evenet (the less expensive remote, compared to TC or Lexi, right?), it gives you the ability to run 4 Eventide units at the same time and tweak parameters with those 8 encoders, using both hands for creative action…and won't be another load on your computer. So, there are good reasons for it.
Considered that EControl will be available for ProTools and we don't know at the moment if and when it may be available for other platforms…EveNet makes even more sense.
