Complex FireWire Routings
These are for use with workstation software on a PC or Mac.
Analog & FireWire AB
Four channels are sent from the workstation over FireWire1 1-4 and pass through DSP A, then DSP B and are then sent out on FireWire1 1-4. The four analog inputs are sent over FireWire1 5-8. In addition, the 8 ADAT input channels are sent out over FireWire2. Thus the H8000FW is used as a 4 channel A/D and also provides two 4 channel effects (which would typically be used as an insert) as well as an 8 channel ADAT input feed.
4 DSP B 8
4 DSP A 8
ADAT & AES8 I/O
There is a lot going on here. FireWire1 in is connected to ADAT out, ADAT in is connected to FireWire1 out, AES 11-18 in are connected to FireWire2 out, while FireWire2 in is connected to AES 11-18 out. In addition, DSP A and B are fed in series from the analog and AES4 inputs. So, the H8000FW is performing the role of an 8 channel dual machine effects unit, while at the same time it is offering 32 channels of I/O to the workstation.
4 DSP A DSP B 14
SP/DIF coax Analog in
Analog out SP/DIF opto
The I/O Identifier
While each DSP has eight inputs and eight outputs, its not necessarily the case that every program will utilize all eight inputs or all eight outputs of the DSP its running on. Every program is unique and uses only the number of inputs and outputs that are necessary for its function. For instance, a program that synthesized sound would not need any inputs! A program that modulated one stereo signal with another would need four inputs (two for the carrier and two for the modulator) but only two outputs (for the result of the modulation). Again, the function of a program determines how many inputs and outputs are utilized on the DSP running the program.
Notice that to the right of every program name in the PROGRAM area is a two-digit number (press the PROGRAM key to get there). This two-digit number is known as the "I/O Identifier." In the case of the program "BasicRoom" shown to the right, the two digit number is "24." In the case of the program "Compressor_8" shown to the right, the two-digit number is "88." The first digit indicates how many inputs are utilized, and the second digit indicates how many outputs are utilized. If the "I/O Identifier" for a program were "13," DSP input 1 would be used while inputs 2 through 8 were dead, and DSP outputs 1, 2, and 3 would be used while outputs 4 through 8 were dead. A program will utilize the same number of inputs and outputs regardless of whether it is loaded on DSP A or DSP B.
"Tweaking" and Saving "Tweaks"
Different sets of parameter values for a single program are said to be different "tweaks" of that program. As you play with the parameters on the preset programs, you are "tweaking" those preset programs. For instance, lets say you want a program that mimics the frequency response of your neighbors television as heard through your wall. You want to "tweak" the parameters of a filter program in order to get the correct frequency response. First, load the program "Filter_Q." Do some long calculations involving transmission coefficients and dispersion laws to arrive at the proper filter cutoff frequency and resonance. Enter them. Notice the asterisk "*" that appears after the name. This is to tell you that the program has been changed and that you will lose the changes if you don't do a save.
See Saving a Program on page 129.
To avoid going through the entire arduous math the next time you want to mimic the frequency response of your neighbors television, you should save your tweaks as a new program. Press the PROGRAM key to enter the program area. Press the PROGRAM key a second time and then press the Save SOFT KEY. Check that there is enough Space and then place the cursor over the rename field and press SELECT. Use the fancy typewriter to give your tweak an endearing name. Then place the cursor over Enter and press SELECT to return to the Save menu page.
To learn how to enter text, see Entering or Changing Text on page 20.
Turn the KNOB on the top line to select an unoccupied program slot. Then place the cursor over save and press SELECT!
After selecting save, you can verify that your program is now listed under the list menu page in the PROGRAM area. Note that there is a U to the left of the I/O Identifiers - this shows that this was saved as a User Program. A C would indicate that the program was saved on a Memory Card.
Now, you can load your tweak and feel edgy and irritated even when the neighbors are on vacation!
To read about using Memory Cards, see Memory Cards on page 49.
Using User Groups to Organize Useful Programs
The H8000FW contains an easy to use facility for organizing programs that you find useful. You may want to keep a "collection" of your favorite programs. You may want to keep a "collection" of effects that were used on a particular project. You may want to keep a "collection" of programs for use during a show.
Storing and Loading Routing Configurations
Nevertheless, you dont have to wrestle with all those parameters every time you want to change the routing configuration. As youll recall, in the Overview and Quickstart section we used the Routing Storage area for loading entire routing configurations in one go. In addition to loading the preset routing configurations that came with the H8000FW, you can also save your own configurations for future use.
Block diagrams and descriptions of the preset routing configurations can be found in Loading Routing Configurations on page 25.
Access the Routing Storage area by holding down the PROGRAM key for one second. The LED next to the PROGRAM key will begin to blink and the upper right-hand portion of the screen will read "Routings." Here we find several SOFT KEYS:
list Lists the routing configurations.
Jumps between decades or the alphabet depending on the status of the Sort by parameter in the Criteria menu page. Determines the behavior of the list. Will routing configurations be presented numerically or alphabetically? Will you be able to view "factory" configurations? "User" configurations? Configurations on Memory Cards? Saves routing configurations without overwriting original configuration. You have the option to rename the configuration. Saves routing configurations to User Memory with a single key press. Deletes the selected routing configurations from User Memory or Card.
These SOFT KEYS behave exactly as they do in the PROGRAM area.
See Loading Programs on page 125, Saving a Program on page 129, and Deleting a Program on page 132 for more details. To change the one second hold time," see Miscellaneous Setup Options on page 140.
The parameters on the following routing and levels menu pages are saved in the Routing Storage area:
SETUP / dsp A SETUP / dsp B SETUP / inputs
used to assign "sources" for DSP A. used to assign "sources" for DSP B. used to assign "sources" to the "input block."
SETUP / outputs used to assign "sources" to the outputs. SETUP / format
used to define digital protocols for AES/EBU and S/P DIF
inputs and outputs.
LEVELS / dsp A
used to adjust the Wet/Dry mix for DSP A, the output levels for DSP A, and the input levels for DSP A. 69
inputs machine in measures the level at the inputs to the currently displayed DSP. To measure
the level at the inputs to the DSP not currently displayed, press the PROCESSOR A/B key. In post-fade mode, the meters reflect level cuts made on the dsp A or dsp B menu page in the LEVELS area. In pre-fade mode, the meters do not reflect these cuts. measures the level at the outputs to the currently displayed DSP. To measure the level at the outputs to the DSP not currently displayed, press the PROCESSOR A/B key. In post-fade mode, the meters reflect level cuts made on the dsp A or dsp B menu page in the LEVELS area. In pre-fade mode, the meters do not reflect these cuts.
measure the level at the AES/EBU outputs (H8000) or at the analog and AES/EBU outputs (H8000A, H8000FW). The S/P DIF output level is equivalent to AES/EBU 1/2 and in the H8000 the analog output level is 7/8. The ADAT output levels depend on which outputs were assigned to which ADAT outputs. The levels reflect cuts made on the outputs menu page in the LEVELS area (there is no post-fade/pre-fade distinction when monitoring the outputs).
The order parameter determines the order of signals. Usually you will leave this at 1-4, 5-8. Your other option is to "flip" the first and last four inputs/outputs on the meters: 5-8, 1-4. This is mostly useful for viewing an 8-channel signal on an Eve/Net remote with 4channel metering.
The parameter decay time determines how long the meters take to go from full "deflection" to zero measuring an impulse. The parameter peak hold determines how long the meters hold their highest reading.
The Level Meters are useful for two reasons. First, you can use them to verify that your internal gain structure is in good shape. You generally want to keep levels near, but not touching, the red clip LED. To achieve this, its always better to boost or cut an output. Only if a signal level cannot be optimized by an output boost/cut should you resort to altering an input level! Second, the Level Meters can be used to troubleshoot routing problems. If, for example, you hear nothing at the output of the H8000FW, and you think your signal path goes from the analog inputs to DSP B to DSP A to the digital outputs, you can use the Level Meters to check that signal exists at every point along the way. The point in the path at which the signal "dies" will clue you in to what routing or level parameter has been set incorrectly.
The "System Sampling Rate and External Sync Indicator" is the box of five LEDs immediately to the left of the display. The top four LEDs indicate the status of the system sampling rate: Solidly lit: When one of the top four LEDs is solidly lit, the system sampling rate is exact (+/- 0.05%) (the LED corresponding to the system sampling rate will illuminate ). Blinking: When one of the top four LEDs is blinking, the system sampling rate is between one of the fixed rates (the LED corresponding to the nearest sampling rate will blink ). Use the "Sample Rate" field on the clock menu page in the SETUP area to see the actual sampling rate (e.g., 48001Hz in the example to the right). The bottom LED, EXT, has two possible states: Solidly lit: When the bottom LED is solidly lit, all of the routed digital inputs are locked and all is right with the world. Blinking regularly: When the bottom LED is blinking regularly, at least one (and maybe more than one) routed digital input is unlocked (i.e., not synchronized to the external clock). Use the right-hand side of the clock menu page in the SETUP area to see which digital inputs are in fact unlocked.
To check which digital inputs are routed, consult the routing menu pages discussed in Routing Configuration on page 55.
Sample Rate Conversion (SRC)
In general you need to make sure that any digital inputs are synchronized to the system sampling rate. If for any reason you cannot synchronize the AES/EBU 1-4 (1-8 on H8000) or S/P DIF 1/2 digital inputs to the system sampling rate, use sample rate conversion (SRC). The sample rate conversion pages are the "bottom" menu pages under clock in the SETUP area. By turning SRC Mode on for the appropriate digital input, the H8000FW will adjust the input sampling rate to match the system sampling rate. The sample rate before conversion is displayed in the Input SR x/x field. In this example, our internal clock rate is 48kHz. The SRCs are converting these 44.1kHz inputs to 48kHz. The sample rate conversion algorithm is of a high quality and its presence is normally undetectable without the use of expensive test equipment. Nevertheless, the true audiophile will try to synchronize the input devices to the H8000FW without using sample rate conversion in order to achieve the best possible results. Note that sample rate conversion is only available on the above inputs other digital inputs need to be locked if they are used.
Put the H8000FW into system bypass mode either by placing the cursor over the system field and pressing SELECT or by pressing the BYPASS key. Once the H8000FW is in system bypass mode, the Bypass Status LEDs blink, and the bypass A and bypass B fields are no longer available. To get the H8000FW out of system bypass mode, either place the cursor over the system field and press SELECT or press the BYPASS key.
See Remote Controlling the Bypass Functions on page 112.
The two options that exist for machine bypass are: Makes each output of the bypassed DSP the same as its corresponding input. The routing configuration still applies.
dsp bypass This is the same as setting all the OUTx Wet/Dry parameters on the [dsp x] menu page in the LEVELS area to 0%, except that the output levels cannot be changed. mute
Mutes the outputs of the bypassed DSP. The routing configuration still
applies. Put the H8000FW into machine bypass mode by SELECTing either the bypass A field or the bypass B field. The corresponding Bypass Status LED will light when a DSP is bypassed. To "un"-bypass a DSP, press its bypass x field again. Its corresponding Bypass Status LED will grow dark.
External controllers are inputs to the H8000FW that allow the modification of parameters from a source outside the H8000FW. These include the foot pedal jacks 1 and 2, the relay jack, and MIDI. In addition to changing parameters such as delay times, pitch shift, LFO rate, etc., in programs, the external controllers can be used to modulate "box" level parameters, such as input levels, Wet/Dry mix, and even screen contrast. (Why you would want to modulate screen contrast is not obvious, but it's nice to know you can!)
See: Setting Up the External Controllers on page 94. External Modulation and Trigger Menu Pages on page 98. Remote Controlling Parameters on page 113.
In addition, external controllers can be used to advance through programs.
Here we will discuss the "global" setup of these external controllers.
SETTING UP THE EXTERNAL CONTROLLERS Foot Pedals 1 and 2
Each foot pedal jack accepts a stereo ("tip-ringsleeve") 1/4" connector (see diagram below). Between the ring and sleeve is a fixed 5 volts provided by the H8000FW. The foot pedal that is hooked up to the jack and returned between the tip and the sleeve alters that voltage. The pedals menu page in the SETUP area allows you to calibrate the foot pedal jacks for the particular foot pedals you are using. The "top" menu page calibrates jack 1, and the "bottom" menu page calibrates jack 2 (just press the pedals SOFT KEY to toggle between the two). The horizontal bar graph at the top of the menu page represents the current foot pedal position relative to the calibration. To calibrate your pedal, highlight the Calibrate parameter with the cursor and press the SELECT key. Rock your foot pedal through its full range of motion, from full minimum ("heel") to full maximum ("toe"), and then press any key. The 94
The H8000FW comes with over one thousand factory programs, on top of any that you may save to User Memory or Memory Card. Many hundreds - and each one is unique! To help make finding a useful program for a given situation easy, each program is categorized in several different ways. These categories form a powerful "database" which is one of the key features of the H8000FW. We discuss the different ways to quickly locate the right effect for your application below and recommend that you make an effort to understand this section fully - the time taken will be well spent.
Categorized by Effects Type
Although each program is unique, all programs can be categorized broadly by the types of effects that they contain. This is useful in that it allows you to compare programs with similar capabilities: Samplers (S) Pitch shifters (P) Reverbs (R) Delays (D) Modulations (M) Complex (C) Equalizers and Filters (E) dYnamics (Y)
Programs can and usually do contain more than just one of these effects types. The letters to the right of the names above are the shorthand notation as shown on the list menu page in the PROGRAM area. Here, Kick/SnareReplacer is a complex (C) preset that uses samplers (S), delays (D), equalizers (E), and dYnamics (Y). Kill The Guy only uses modulations (M) and equalizers/filters (E). When you save your own programs or your own tweaks of factory programs, you can assign effects "flags" yourself on the effects menu page in the PROGRAM area. Here the Pitch and Delay flags are on - a "P" and "D" will appear next to this programs name on the list menu page. Categorized by Intended Source Many (but not all) of the H8000FWs programs have been categorized by what source material they were designed for. This is in addition to their effects type! The list of sources is: Guitar Vocals Drums Keyboard Special Effects Surround
Unlike categorization by effects type, there is no way to see categorization by intended source on the list menu page in the PROGRAM area. However, as we will see shortly, categorization by source becomes very handy once you start searching for programs. When you save your own programs or your own tweaks of factory programs, you can assign source "flags" yourself on the sources menu page in the PROGRAM area. Here the Vocals and Special FX flags are on.
Show determines if only those programs that
are loadable will be shown on the list menu page or if any program will be shown. If you are using higher sampling rates (e.g., 96kHz), some programs are unloadable. Assuming youre using a higher sampling rate, with Show set to any, these programs have lines through them. To avoid this unpleasantness, leave Show set to loadable. In the same way, some programs may only be loaded on DSP A, and may not be loaded if DSP B is selected. Similarly, some programs come in two versions: a monolithic version for 88/96k operation, and a single machine version for 44/48k operation. Normally only the relevant one of these is visible, but if Show is set to any, both of these can be seen, as shown by 'Static' Flanger in the screen above. Finally, Machines determines if only programs that run on a single DSP will be shown (A & B), only those that are "monolithic" will be shown (II A only), or if both sorts of programs will be shown (any) on the list menu page.
A & B is useful if you know that you want a dual machine configuration and don't wish to
be bothered by monolithic programs. Similarly, if you want to only see the most powerful programs, set it to II A only.
Programs are loaded by first selecting a program to load in the PROGRAM area. You select a program to load by sorting through the available programs (see the preceding section). Use the up and down CURSOR keys or the KNOB to highlight the program you want to load on the list menu page.
Its important to note that the program will be loaded into the currently displayed DSP as indicated by the upper left-hand corner of the display. If you want to load a "non-monolithic" program into the DSP not currently displayed, you need to press the PROCESSOR A/B key. If the H8000FW is currently running a monolithic program (no "A:" or "B:" in the upper left corner), a "non-monolithic" program will load into DSP A and the "Thru'" program will be loaded into DSP B. Some larger programs, those not marked with a "96," will be unavailable for loading when the system is using a high sampling rate. Programs using the (large) Sampler and Longdelay modules cannot be loaded on DSP B. If Show is set to any on the Criteria menu page in the PROGRAM area, these "unloadable" programs will be displayed with a line through them on the list menu page. To avoid seeing these programs when they cant be loaded, set Show to the default setting loadable. The last few programs that were loaded are also saved in the "Most recent" group. This means that you can quickly revisit the programs that you are currently using, without having to look through all the programs to find them again. You can find this list (and reload those programs from it) by setting Search By to User Grp on the Criteria menu page in the PROGRAM area. Then go to list and use the < - - and - - > SOFT KEYS to find the Most recent list - it is actually the first Usergroup and is maintained by the system.
"I cant tell you what a parameter is, but Ill know it when I see it." Court --US Supreme
The PARAMETER area is special in that the menus change to reflect the options available in the currently running program (on the currently displayed DSP ). The number of menu pages and their content vary from program to program. Consequently, very little can be said about parameters generally. But thats not much of a liability; parameters are easy to understand as you encounter them.
For the sake of your sanity, its important to remember that the parameters you are messing with in the PARAMETER area belong to the program running on the currently displayed DSP*. For example, on the screen to the right youre messing with parameters for the program "Tiled Room" that is running on DSP B. Continuing our example, pressing the PROCESSOR A/B key toggles the display to DSP A. Now youre messing with parameters for the program "Dinosaur Legs" that is running on DSP A. Many, but not all, of the programs in the H8000FW support an "expert mode" feature. The expert mode parameter controlling this feature is found on the misc menu page in the SETUP area (you may have to press the SETUP key a few times to find it). A setting of 0 hides all but the most relevant menu pages in the PARAMETER area. Conversely, a setting of 9 reveals all of the available menu pages in the PARAMETER area. Settings between 0 and 9 reveal a proportionate amount of menu pages in the PARAMETER area. Leave expert mode at 9 if you like lots of parameters to tinker with, at 0 if you find lots of parameters annoying, or somewhere in-between if your tastes fall somewhere inbetween. While most parameter types are self-explanatory, there are a few special types that deserve specific mention.
If the upper left-hand corner of the screen reads A, the currently displayed DSP is DSP A. If the upper left-hand corner of the screen reads B, the currently displayed DSP is DSP B. Both DSPs are always running, but only the parameters for one of them can be displayed at a time.
Most programs that have "frequency" or "time" parameters (e.g., LFOs, reverb decays, and delays) will synchronize to the system tempo. This greatly simplifies the task of customizing a program to a particular song. Simply set the system tempo to tempo of the song you're working on and BAM! Everything falls in place! The system tempo is defined on the tempo menu page in the SETUP area. In the simplest case, set Source to Internal and manually enter the appropriate Tempo. Alternatively, you can tap the <tap> soft key to the beat and the H8000FW will calculate the tempo for you. Change the number of taps used in this calculation with the Average parameter. You can derive the system tempo from several other sources by using the Source parameter:

There is one difference between saving a Setup and saving a Program. It is possible to choose whether, when the setup is reloaded, it will automatically load the programs that were loaded when it was saved. This brings the machine state as close as possible to that when it was saved. To do this, set with programs to yes. A few things to be aware of: The programs are not saved as part of the setup, so they must still exist on the machine. The current routing is always saved as part of the setup. After loading a setup, a small number of non-critical settings, such as screen brightness, will not be restored until the system is restarted.

Transmitting and receiving Data
Setting Up the Serial Port
The serial port can be used to transmit data between the H8000FW and a computer. It is an IBM PC type RS232 connector, which looks like a modem or printer to a connected computer. You can set up the serial ports parameters on the "third" midi menu page in the SETUP area. Repeatedly press the midi SOFT KEY until you see the menu page shown to the right. The first parameter, serial, determines whether the serial port is enabled or disabled. If set to disabled, messages will neither be sent out the serial port nor accepted at the serial port. The second parameter, baud rate, determines the speed at which messages will be sent out the serial port and the speed at which the H8000FW expects to receive messages at the serial port. Similarly, data bits, stop bits, and parity all describe aspects of the messages sent out the serial port and aspects of the messages that the H8000FW expects to receive at the serial port. For things to work properly, these last four parameters must be set to the same values on both the H8000FW and the machine connected to the serial port. Higher baud rates result in faster transmission times, but most machines have a ceiling above which errors occur. So, set the baud rate to the highest value you can on both the H8000FW and the machine connected to its serial port that results in error-free transmissions. The data bits are normally set at 8, the stop bits are normally set at 2, and the parity is normally set at none. You should only need to stray from these values if the device the H8000FW is communicating with is constrained to some other values. If that is the case, change the values on the H8000FW to match the other device. To aid in troubleshooting, the BUSY LED will illuminate when data is transferred at the serial port, provided no Memory Card is in place. If the serial port is "enabled," messages sent out the
Synchronizing connected audio devices
For audio purposes, a computer can be thought of as a device that shuffles processed data between its disk drives, memory and peripherals. As such, it neither has nor needs the concept of a sample rate (except for calculating delays or filters and such-like). This concept only becomes necessary when it is necessary to output audio to or from the outside world, in which case it is set by the hardware conversion devices. Things become more complex when you have more than one device that cares about the sample rate because if a device gets data at the wrong sample rate it will have to drop samples or insert extra samples to keep up. This will cause clicks or distortion, depending on its severity. To avoid this, we allow one device, known henceforth as the clock master, to define the sample rate and any other devices have to follow its lead.
If you are using just one external audio device (or an internal one such as a sound card) everything is easy. This device becomes the clock master (usually automatically) and the computer does what it has to do. If you have more than one device, commonly a sound card and one or more external audio thingies, life is more complicated. As before, you have to define one device as being the clock master and must synchronize the others to it so that they all run at the same sample rate. This is made more difficult by the fact that some devices (sound cards especially) cannot accept synchronization and must be made the clock master, obliging the other devices to be synchronized to them. All audio devices used together in a system MUST be synchronized to run at the same sample rate. Synchronization is typically achieved by either hardware or software measures: Hardware synchronization is achieved by connecting AES, S/P DIF or Wordclock cables from the outputs of the clock master to a corresponding input of the other devices and configuring these devices to use this signal as a sync source. Software synchronization employs the use of sample rate conversion (which uses a lot of computer power) to make disparate devices compatible with the master sample rate. It is available on Macs when creating Aggregate Devices, or on some Windows applications using WDM drivers. Again, see your computer manuals for more details on these. The FireWire link contains a sample clock to which the H8000FW can be synchronized if all other approaches fail, but this is not recommended except as a last resort as the quality of this clock is not high and it can increase jitter or other bad things. Note that on Macs this is not always available. So, to sum up: One audio hardware device must be configured as the clock master Any other audio devices in the system must be synchronized to the clock master by (preferably) hardware or software means.

Eventide Journeys to the Center of the Earth
LITTLE FERRY, New Jersey, June 23, 2009 When Toronto-based film composer Andrew Lockington needed some special sonic magic for a score for the blockbuster film Journey to the Center of the Earth, he chose the Eventide H8000FW. The score was recorded and mixed at Air Lyndhurst Studios. The film, based on the classic Jules Verne science fiction novel from 1871, is directed by Josh Hutchison and stars Brendan Fraser and Anita Briem. Lockington also deployed the Eventide H8000FW on City of Ember, the major motion picture starring Tim Robbins, produced by Tom Hanks. Recorded and mixed at Abbey Road Studios, the score is performed by 90 piece orchestra and 85 piece choir. The score features unique percussive elements accented by mystical wind instruments. Lockington used the H8000FW to create a unique sonic realm. "What we came up with was beyond my wildest dreams. The closest anyone could come to describing it was as 'sophisticated whale music'. The H8000FW has opened a whole new creative door for me." Lockington added, After a few sessions with the Eventide H8000FW, I was convinced I needed my own."
