Looks like all the presets are designed for pop/rock types of music.
Has anyone tried one of these on other sources, acoustic instruments such as fiddle, accordion, brass, etc? What presets would you use?

Robert, I use one for acoustic guitar all the time, and I just did 6 shows over two days with a pair of wireless lavs and a handheld at high end corpie gigs... took care of presenters with less than even voices and less than predictable head movement smoothly and seamlessly. Made my job easy.

It should be mentioned that TC Electronic has released the C400XL, an upgraded version of the C300 with XLR balanced I/O, both analog and AES digital. Looks like it's about $100 more, but not many retailers seem to be carrying it yet.

Hi Bennett,
The C300 has a preset for acoustic guitar, I was curious about using it on sources for which there is no preset.
BTW, congrats on your appointment with ADRaudio. I saw the article in the latest FOH magazine.

Oops, looking at that photo again I see there is a horn/inst preset.
Never mind.

Well I went out and bought four of these. I badly needed new band comps and had been considering an 8 channel unit. I have done two shows with them now. I am using one unit for Kick- gate & comp. Snare- gate & comp. Bass- comp, Keys- comp, backing vox- comp and guitars (there are 5) comp. Bass is Brilliant, Kick & snare very good, Vocals- not bad but I have six vocalists to try and control. I was using the Choir preset but changed to Female Vox. Keys- 2 x mono keys with wildly varying patch levels- Sounds very clean here even at -15db. Guitars-not really needed but saves me jumping on a fader when a player turns gets over zelous. They are as good as any of the 10 series DBX comps IMHO. I still love the 160x for lead vox but these little units are great value for money. I may replace the backing vox preset with one of my RNC1773's.

Thanks to those who posted on these units.

Sorry, I know this is an old thread but I have a qick question. Looking at the manual I see there is a brick wall limiter as well as the multiband comp. Is there any way of adjusting the limiter threshold?

Not that I'm aware of, Adrian. The TC C series comps take a bunch of control away from the user which, for what I'm using and recommending them for, is great. I'm sure no small part of the reason they sound good is because there's all sorts of carefully pre-tweaked settings and multiple stages/bandpasses of compression inside, none of which anyone I know would bother setting up except for maybe one or two channels for a high dollar act.

If you need control, break out your favorite limiter and throw it after your favorite compressor. If you need to set it and forget it, use the C series stuff.
