After a weekend of use - really liked it on bass gtr, definitely more than my acp-8, maybe even my 1046. Top end was better preserved. Sounded good on snare too. Gonna patch them into drum, bass, gtr, & voc subs this weekend in one of the better sounding rooms I do. Great comp for <$200. Perfect for a B or C rig.

NEWS FLASH -
I wanted to report to you that TC Electronic was so impressed by all the great feedback they received from Road Test that they will be using some of the reviews in a e-newsletter that they will be blasting worldwide.  So, maybe one of your reviews will be one of them.  Actually, I think they will be providing a link to this thread.

I think I will pick up a pair for remote recording. I hate dragging some of my comps out of the rack in the studio. I already have some pieces of gear from the "Helicon" side of TC and they make quality products

I recently sold the last two of my ten year old Behringer Composers.  So today I picked up 4 C300's for my B rig FOH rack.  Hopefully everyone here is right about these things because tomorrow night they're the only compression I'm bringing.  If they suck, I'm crackin' skulls!

Bad stuff:
Doing a side-by-side comparison against a 266xl and the C300, I have to say, the 266xl has a much smoother compression and is much less noticeable even when compressing as little as 3db gain reduction at 3:1.  The C300 also has a faint, weird fluttering sound that I'm not very happy with.  It's not noticeable through a system, but using headphones it's pretty apparent.  The C300 also starts cutting high-end drastically when using anything above 3:1 with more than 6db of gain reduction.

Good stuff:
I used the C300's last night with excellent results!  They really are excellent for for the money.  I love their ease of use, and their versatility.  I didn't want a single 4ch comp because you're obviously locked in at 4 comps, and same with a 4ch gate.  With 4 C300's, I've got 8 channels of whatever I need.  An ACP88 would have worked as well, and been 2 spaces less, but I've never been a huge fan, and they're up to $900.  I've very happy with the purchase and feel they'll be in my B rig FOH rack for quite some time.

Oh and take the handles off the front - They look much cooler without the handles!

My first C300 died at the first gig, middle of last summer. The second 2 have lasted fine.

I had a channel of a C300 go out this weekend.
Thought it was a faulty cable, replaced, and still no go.

At times the display thought it was a gate, but no audio passed.
At least it shorts the input to the out when in fails.

Units babyed in a Road Ready FX rack.

...more later.

...follow-up

Don't look for ribbon connectors inside, ribbons are soldered to the pcbs.

TC mailed me with an RA within four hours of sending a trouble ticket via their site.

So far I have a good warm fuzzy about TC repair.
We'll see ...

I fuckin' hate that, even though it saves fifty cents on the BOM for each connector eliminated.
