Congrat's Tom, enjoy your new widget.  Just wanted everyone to know - Keep your eyes pealed for the upcoming thread on the TC M350.
Andy Peter's (sic) is currently looking out his window for the Big Brown Truck bearing gifts.  


Said Big Brown Truck arrived not long after I got home from work last night, just in time for my gig tonight with Elf Power.  Stay tuned (in a new thread).

PS: Watch those apostrophes, Sara ...


One of the annoying things about the M300 is the position of the 'Vintage Phaser' patch.  Located a knob click down from slapback, it's in that location that is tough to see with the popular rack mounted light PSU.

Slapback is so popular in my mixes, I'm reaching for this all the time.  In the heat of mix, I've had the phaser start out a song a few times.

I wonder if the ergonomics of the 350 improve on this.

Nope, sorry Tom. Still the same:

I see they've eliminated the redundant Flanger, and went with a 'Vivid Chorus' in its place.

I think the 300 will become my snare insert FX.
That'll teach it.

I know by now this is an old thread so I don't know if the original posters are still checking it but I've got a quick question for Bennett, Evan or anyone who uses this. I noticed that the threshold on the c300 only goes to 0, as opposed to +12 or +20 db. With certain singers I find myself using a threshold of up to +5 or +10(rarely)on the 266xl. Has anyone found themselves wanting to to use a higher threshold than what is available on the C300? I've already got one on the way so I guess I'll find out soon enough but I was wondering if anyone has encountered this. Thanks.

Loren,

The threshold knob on the C300 is referenced to 0dBFS (decibels full scale) due to the digital nature of the internal processing. I find setting it somewhere between -15 and -30 works well for me, -20 would be roughly equivalent to the 0dBu you're used to.

This is a digital unit. Dont hold me to these numbers, but I believe 0db in the digital world is about the same as +18 in the analog world.. Though, Im not 100% sure, so hopefully Bennett will correct anything wrong with what I say, as always. Razz

0dBFS is often specced at 24dBu. This could be the "official" value, but I could be wrong.

I'm not aware of an official standard, but that doesn't mean there isn't one. Could be several  Laughing

0dBFS is often specced at 24dBu. This could be the "official" value, but I could be wrong.
It depends on the gear. On most of the Yamaha consoles 0dBfs is +24dBu because that is what the maximum output is. The DM2000 is +18dBu, and the rest of the consoles can be optionally set to +18. The Digico D5 is +22dBu. The maximum level at the input to the DA converter is always going to be 0dBfs, because that is what defines it. The maximum analog capability of the DA into 600 ohms is what will define the corresponding analog level in dBu. If a device can only put out +18dBu, that is what 0dBfs will be for that device.
