My vote would be for the Eventide engineers to do what they need to do best — keep working on/improving the core H9000 functionality. I’d love to see some of the ‘missing’ older algorithms get implemented along with other new cool things that only the 9000 can do. Since there is a faceless H9000R, the Emote app is a necessary tool to maintain.
However, I’d leave all the other editors/etc to 3rd party developers and publish whatever specs/info Eventide has gleaned to help up to this point. Supporting software apps across different platforms, different OS upgrades, and different hardware/network configurations can drag down a small company with finite resources.
