TC Electronic have announced the new C300, a compressor/limiter/gate/expander for live
and studio applications.
Hereâ€™s what TC have to say about the new unitâ€¦
C300 is a single rackspace dual engine processor featuring
analog and digital I/O, with both engines able to operate in compression/limiter or
The 16 compression/limiter presets and 16 gate/expander sourcebased
presets give the user real-world starting points to execute complicated
compression at the flip of a switch.
C300 is an excellent match for both stereo and
mono sources. The flexible routing provides all combinations of parallel and serial link
modes, and the stereo serial mode allows the user to process a composite signal on both
C300 is the perfect addition to PA and recording setups, fixed installations, and DJ
systems where audio dynamics and transparency are at a premium. Based on years of
research into dynamics, C300 utilizes TCâ€™s thoroughly proven spectral compression in a
user-friendly preset-based structure.
C300 employs cutting-edge expansion and
intelligent TC full-band and multi-band gating and compression algorithms which allow
audio material to be effectively compressed without reducing the level of the entire
signal when it exceeds the threshold.
C300 also includes TCâ€™s new style compression
mode, based on parallel compression, which makes it possible to mix the compressed
signal with the dry signal with a single button. New style compression allows the user to
emphasize low level details, and bring out expression and character in vocals and other
The new C300 dynamics processor from TC Electronic offers
engineers, performing and recording musicians and DJs an essential tool for optimizing
any given audio material without having to adjust complex parameters. Price and Availability
C300 will ship in May 2006 at EUR 210 retail ex. VAT.
