I was reading a post from a H8000 user that said he would often take preset programs in the H8000 and put them together some how in visig and make a single program that would run on one processor. He said that this worked with about 90% of the programs. I was just wondering if this is possible and easy to do? I would be interested in doing this if it did take to much time.

it is definitely possible to merge 2 presets (or more) in a single one. There are some important aspects to take into account though. "90% of the programs" is an excessive extimation and there is no way to exactly know this as there are quite a number of different DSP resources that can be exhausted by an algorithm, making impossible to load it as a single DSP preset.
The art of Vsig programming is very deep and extremely rewarding as it unwraps levels of power and flexibility unknown to average fx usage…so taking the time to learn it will make your experience unextimable.
You can merge 2 presets into a single DSP or even into a monolithic one (the 2 DSPs work as a single one to load big structures that can't be run on a single chip). This is an automated process the Eventide will do for you at loading time.
With time and experience you will learn that there are parts of 2 presets you may cut out and/or change to a simpler form to help loading.
In general the answer is "YES, you can!"
all the best

So from your post it seems as though you can merge two presets into one processor without even touching vsig?

No. You must use Vsigfile for this.
2 DSPs = 2 separate machines, so presets can't merge, unless you design a new one that contains them and doesn't exhaust any of the DSP resources.

To follow up, is this correct:
In some instances,
certain presets that aren't too heavy on DSP resources
can be combined (by VSIG) to run on only 1 DSP.
In some instances,
the specific preset might be too intensive to combine with anything else.
How does one know which situation it will be?
Are there DSP 'meters' that show remaining resources?

There are no resources metering functions as the number and variety of resources the DSPs can dynamically allocate are many and different. To do this monitoring it would be very complex and likely would eat up other resources.
In general you should try loading the algorithm to see if no errors or notices show up.
Another useful suggestion is that a Vsigfile (stored algorithm) around 24kb in its stored file is about to be at max size.
But loading remains the best test.
