Chiming in here as a home studio user who generates zero dollars with his home studio. I record strictly for pleasure and learning right now. I own an H9000 and really its plenty useful as an 8 analog 8 digital channel processor. yes its pricey but running up to 16 algorithms at once as far as I know is unprecedented. You’d need 16 H9 max pedals which would cost somewhere around double an H9000R. I really dont think someone could reasonably get to know every algorithm in the H9000 and they’re adding more. Emote as a VST gives you automation control, too. It’s really a great unit overall with promising continuing development.
