2.1. Analog Setup

A few things to remember when using the H9000’s analog I/O:

  • The analog I/O levels are configurable from -10 dBV to +4dBu on the front panel’s Analog References page, or in Emote’s Setup View.

  • The XLR I/O are summed with the DB-25 connecter’s first two channels.

  • The analog I/O are operable at sample rates of 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz, and 96kHz.

  • If you’re only using analog I/O, then clock sync is not necessary.

2.1.1. Stereo Analog

In order to use the analog I/O of the H9000, you will need to configure an FX chain to use your desired I/O sources.

  • Connect the source that you wish to be processed by the H9000 to either XLR inputs 1-2, or the first two channels of the DB-25 input connector.

  • Connect the H9000’s XLR or DB-25 outputs to your monitor source (audio interface, analog mixer, etc.)

  • Load the Factory Default Session 1005 STEREO ANALOG.

  • This will load an FX Chain that has been configured to use analog I/O 1-2.

  • Your analog source should now be processed by FX Chain 1, which includes a THRU algorithm by default.

  • You can now choose to replace the THRU algorithm with any algorithm you choose, as well as add up to three more algorithms to FX Chain 1.

2.1.2. Adding more FX Chains

Now that you’ve set up your H9000 with a stereo source, lets see how we can use the all four of the H9000’s FX chain’s by processing 4 stereo sources!

  • Connect up to eight sources that you wish to be processed by the H9000 to the DB-25 input.

  • Connect the H9000’s DB-25 output to your monitor source.

  • Load the Factory Default Session 904 ORCHESTRAL MIX. This will load 4 FX Chains, each of which uses a separate pair of analog I/O (FX Chain 1 uses 1-2, FX Chain 2 uses 3-4, etc.)

  • You can now process 4 stereo sources, each with their own set of customizable effects.


The Orchestral Mix session demonstrates the wide variety of ways you can configure your algorithms within an FX Chain. Experiment with routing your algorithms in different combinations of series/parallel for interesting results!
