But, I can tell you that the Orville UI processor ran at 25MHZ, whereas the one in the H9000 runs at 400MHZ. You can imagine that there is quite a difference in responsiveness.

Ignoring the front panel UI, a (very) crude way of analyzing this is that each Orville DSP engine got 12.5 MHz of clock cycles, and each H9000 will get double that. Better, but still not that great.

At some point in the future, it would be great to be able to throw a DSP engine core at the control stuff in an effects chain. For much of the stuff I do, three DSP engines per chain would be plenty, and having more rhythimic stability is more important. I know that this presents some archetectual challenges, but it’s probably easier than communicating across chips.
