They've created a MONSTER!
This thing is the best and last effects unit I'll ever need. It's a dual fire wire DAW interface, a (massive) dual effects processor, a complex signal router (physical and virtual), a mastering/finalizing unit, multiple channel strip, etc, etc, etc. Whatever you need sonically, this thing can do it...WELL! Its built quite solid, so I should probably put it in my will when I'm old enough to need one. It's also very spendy, but I'm continually finding that I've gotten more than I've paid for...Far more. Indeed the H8000FW is a monster, and I mean that in the best possible way. (insert happy face here)
