A bunch of H9000 algorithms are available as plugins like Blackhole or Shimmerverb, etc., so you can get a lot for a little, that way(I use the plugins AND the H900, actually). And I’d recommend the faceplate H9000. I had the R and had some issues, so I switched to the full faceplate version and I love it to death. But either way, the price may be spendy, but Sweetwater just ended their 36-month no interest financing promo on Eventide stuff, so hopefully Sweetwater/Eventide will renew it. Definitely makes it an easier pill to swallow.
