Whirlwind's new Catdusa serves as a convenient way to use Cat5 or Cat6 Ethernet cable for transmitting analog audio, AES/EBU digital audio or DMX lighting control. Catdusa is a four-channel analog snake box that uses shielded Cat5 cable instead of traditional multipair cable. Each channel has paralleled male and female XLRs, allowing for greater flexibility. The two Neutrik etherCON RJ45s (In/Thru), lets users daisy chain multiple boxes. If shielded Cat5 cable is used, Catdusa can pass phantom power and DMX. The Mini stage box design means Catdusa can be placed almost anywhere. There's also a rackmount accessory that houses two Catdusas.

Unveiled at the NYC AES Convention (October 18, 2017), the H9000 is a powerhouse 8-channel audio effects processor in a 2-rackspace chassis. Emphasis is on ease of operation, even when creating complex setups such as effects chains and parallel processing - all handled by a large color display. Its 2,017 (yes, 2,017) presets are culled from the company's popular H8000, DSP4000, H3000 and H9 Harmonizers. Connections include eight channels of analog I/O, MIDI, multichannel USB, Ethernet, MIDI, trigger ports, word clock, AES, optical and cinch S/PDIF digital, and three expansion ports for optional Dante/MADI/AVB cards.
