Eventide H3000 D/SE and H3000 D/SX -- differences ?
 
How close are these 2 units in terms of "sound" and "functionality" when hooked into the aux section of a decent analog console ?

Do they just have different presets, or are there differences in the sonic architecture ?

Just curious cause I just picked up a D/SX, although I was really wanting to get the D/SE. But the price was good so I went with it.

Any further knowledge on this would be appreciated.

I replied to a very similar question a few weeks back. Try 'search'.. but yes, the D/SE has more presets (you can upgrade D/SX into D/SE which is quite expensive). I haven't done an a/b test but I feel D/SX sounds a tad different. Then again I would say SE sounds different to D/SE. Well, I reckon they are all cool and can do the jobjkthtyrt

The hardware - A-to-D converters, processors, mainboard, circuitry and D-to-A converters are exactly the same in the D/SE and the D/SX - only the EPROM with the processing algorithms is differnt (and the front panel).

The studio-intended algorithms exclusive to the D/SE will sound better than the guitar-intended ones in the D/SX, primarily in the reverb area. And there are some cool algorithms in the SE that aren't in the SX. There used to be a list on Eventide's web site, I don't see it there anymore but there are programming guides for them at http://www.eventide.com/oldies/progform/index.html

OK,

So the D/SX is more of a "guitar" oriented box. Thanks, that helps me a little.

I'll probably still try to get my hands on a D/SE as well. Would be nice to have both boxes, each one on a seperate aux on my console.
