Unfortunately all of this stuff is no longer available from the company. They may only repairs broken 4000s these days.
The H3000 was completely based off Eproms, for both OS and algorithms/presets upgrades. No PCMCIA cards for the 3000.
Aargh... just found out from the Yahoo Group that I need OS 2.300 to be able to do MIDI timed delays.
Yes I did read reviews before buying the DSP 4000 but they didn't state what OS they were using, so I guess they must have had the latest OS. I'm a bit surprised that the last version of the H3000 could do it but the new model replacement could not. Possibly there wasn't much interest in syncing up things to a sequencer back then.
You know, there are guys out there in the community that are burning all manner of OS versions on EPROMs for people to buy at a reasonable cost, so it would be good if Eventide could release the OS to one of these folks.
Or maybe somebody on here with OS 2.300 for the DSP 4000 could help out in getting some duplicates made. I would have thought that just about every 4000 owner with any of the standard/early OS versions would love to get this update.
