In this interview with [*Music Radar*](http://www.musicradar.com/news/guitars/u2-exclusive-the-edges-stage-setup-revealed-223342/), The Edge's guitar tech, Dallas School details The Edge's complex rig during the 360 tour. The H3000 is listed as one of his rackmounted effects under the stage, meaning it's either controlled by Dallas or a switching system.more
Robert used an Eventide H3000 during The Cure's live set up. The source here is a screenshot of an [archived version](https://web.archive.org/web/20040213203727/http://archive.guitarplayer.com/archive/artists/thecure.shtml) of an April 2000 edition of *Guitar World* magazine. More verification of Robert's and The Cure's use of this can be found [in this *Sound on Sound* article](http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/1996_articles/jun96/thecure.html).more
I've wanted one of these bad boys for a long time! What can I say? Its and Eventide! One of the coolest effects processors ever! From my understanding it will not do 2 effects at a time (say huge hall panned right and distortion panned left) like some processors do. But this guy has been around since the 80's (my favorite era for music) and has been used on countless records. It has about 700'ish presets. It has stereo in and out by XLR as wells as midi in/thru/out. I love it! I just hope my wife doesn't find out how much i paid for it! ;o)
UPDATE I've updated the EPROM chips to H3500 "everything" and have a total of 1000 presets. This thing is just unbelievable! I love it! I hear people mention that its only 16 bit but that's CD quality for crying out loud! LOVe it!
Used on almost every recording in the late 80's and early 90's, this unit is still found in most of the top studios today. The D/SE had presets from Steve Vai and Bob Clearmountain and was part of the Eddie Van Halen guitar sound throughout this period. Not only for guitar, this unit sounds wonderful on every instrument, not to mention drums, synths and vocals. A myriad of presets and programmable algorithms and parameters, this unit can keep you inspired and busy for decades to come.
