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
[This article on the making of Marr's 2018 *Call the Comet* album by MixOnline.com](https://www.mixonline.com/recording/johnny-marr-finds-his-voice-on-call-the-comet) touches on some of the gear used during the recording process. "'There is hardly any processing on the guitars, maybe a little cut if too bright or boost if too dull, and a highpass filter,' says Doviak. 'Sometimes the guitar sound is thickened with an Eventide H3000 or Lexicon PCM81 guitar doubler effect, which I run as an insert or auxiliary channel in Pro Tools. But nearly all the guitar sounds and effects on Call the Comet come straight from the pedals and amps. The instant feedback and imperfections can be more difficult and slower to reproduce in the plug-in world.'" (While the engineer is providing this feedback, the gear is housed in Marr's own Crazy Face studios, which contains gear he's collected over his decades in the music industry.)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
> Chief workhorses in the effects pedal department included Audio Kitchen's The Big Trees valve preamp; OTO's BIM 12-bit delay unit, BAM Space Generator and BOUM Warming Unit; along with a Klon KTR Centaur overdrive, MWFX's Judder analogue sampler/repeater; and Hologram's Dream Sequence pitch-shifter/sequencer. In addition there was also much use of a Maestro Echoplex and Roland Space Echo for delay, and the Eventide H3000 Harmonizer.more
In this video put out by Eventide, Richard Devine states: > My first unit that I purchased was the [Eventide] H3000. I was in high school. Of course, you know, when most kids were buying cars and I was like, "No, Mom. I want to save up and buy an H3000." I didn't even know what they did, but I knew I had to have one. And I remember bringing it home and turning it on. It was just kind of like the wormhole of crazy sound effects.more
"My live setup is mostly the sampler, Wavestation, sometimes the DX7, a small mixer, long looping delays, echoes and reverbs, homemade flutes and steel guitar. In the studio I have ProTools, a piano, a few additinal synth modules (rarely used), an Eventide H3000, some nice reverbs, good microphones, lots of percussion, odd stringed instruments, things like that."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!
I love using this on groups of vocals or anything that ''breaths''.When used with wisdom and fineness the unit is capable of creating effects you’ve never heard before.True stereo image presentation - highly futuristic!
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.
