      Hello, sorry if this is a taboo first post, but I am VERY close to switching my rack setup to an H9 setup and working towards 2 H9 units as many users seem to have.  I really love the way these things sound, and I have been dreaming about small footprint powerhouses paired with my midi looper/switcher, but I will need at least 2 pedals to do what my rack setup did.  This is a big investment for me right now and don’t want to start buying the H9s if a new device will be out soon that has 2-3 of these units enclosed in one box.  Perhaps its just a comfort thing because my rack handled multiple effects blocks in one enclosure and could be used simultainiously, but that is what I was hoping the H9 would do.  For those of you who have more than 1 of these pedals have you regretted this setup?  Eventide I know you “can’t” tell me, but any plans for a dual H9 (H18) style machine?  

      Thanks for reading my apprehesive first post, its just been a long time with my current rack unit, but I want to move up!!

      Alas, like most businesses, we do not talk about future plans. Nor can we confirm or deny any rumours.

      I can understand your position, but would suggest that you look at the available products and ask yourself "will this do what I want ?" and "is it worth the money ?". If the answer to both are yes, you know what to do.

      One of the great things about technology-based products is that they get better all the time. A down side is that whatever you buy, you can be sure there will be a better one in the future. However, if you keep on waiting, you may grow old and gray.

      As an example, the H9 has about 4 times the dsp power (and 1/10 the cost) of a DSP4000, which is now about 20 years old. Even with the benefit of hindsight, would you suggest to someone thinking of buying one in 1995 that they would be better to wait 20 years ?

        Yeah its so true, thanks for the responce.  Its the answer to your question, “will this do what I want” that has me pausing a bit.  Its always some sort of comprimise with new gear when you have a budget.  Replacing my rack with what is currently on the market will mean one less case to carry, great sound quality, but less feautres than what I am currently used too.  I don’t like to step back!  Ah well might as well start somehwere as eventually I am going to replace it regardless!  Again thanks!

      I have two H9s. 

      They sound SO good, you’ll be kicking yourself if you can only use one delay OR one reverb at a time.

      And I agree with the Eventide rep – you can’t keep waiting for the next big thing. If iPhone users did that, they’d never buy a phone.

      But you will NOT be disappointed by the H9.
