I'm still interested in knowing if there will still be the sampling memory in the H9000. It's been useful for looper patches, as well as "flying in" a part on my Orville.
At first release, we'll have the Looper algorithm available, but we won't have the sampler algorithms from the H8000. We made the decision that the large effort of porting that code was not worth it. However, there's more interest in this than we expected (see https://www.eventideaudio.com/comment/32192#comment-32192) so we are considering it.
