stratosweet's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It is very proper"

TC Electronic C300
We have a process of double dymnamique channels. It's digital, Yeah ... but nevertheless, it offers config interresting as parallel compression. The connector jack or rga leaves us the choice.


There is no configuration worries. The facade is very clear.


The result is very correct, replace the plugs in a mix.


I use it for over 4 years in my studio, although since I have gained much better processor. The price / quality ratio is excellent for a home-studio owners leisure.

stereosound's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

TC Electronic C300
Double compressor (or expander) numrique Stereo with pr-rglages attack and release according to types of treatment.
CHARACTERISTICS two original for this type of product: a multi-band mode (3) on most preset mode and a "parallel compression" via a pot. mix.

Techno numrique.

Analogue connectivity Jack numrique 6.35 and S / PDIF RCA

MODEL Rack, shallow and light. Alim intgre.


Config. gnrale is seeking simple, functional but not forcment:
No button "bypass" is necessary to turn the pot. mix. Super impractical to compare. The economy of a push to lose much in flexibility.
It can be used in dual mono mode, but there is no "link" of rglages (as an ALESIS 3630).

No edition of the preset.

Manuel clear (and translated into En) but no info on frquences cutoff mode multi-band, nor the time of attack / release. It's a little compressor "for Dummies".


On the use and costs in the mix: pluttdu = I expected better of a multi-band mode. Many preset "gum" as a low compression standard (even in 2:1 mode with 6 dB comp).

I have not had time to test it on each solo configuration (type vocals, bass, percussion). It is possible that doing better.

In limiter mode MIX, "should not push too hard" on pain of dteriorer sound. No cons (numrique advantage of), much less background noise (with a BMOL "overload" rapid Makupa GAIN)

If one goes a bit too gain (Makupa) to compensate for the compression of the overload LED lights up. Little sensitive.

Mode "composite" which is defined be neutral is ultimately the least adapted (compression of a MIX).
The preset De-esser (2 choices) are plutt convincing.
In expander modes "rduction of breath" or "background noise" trs works well.


I just got it. I have several analog compressors dj "broadband" (VCA, FET), an analog compressor (VCA) Multiband Stereo (3) a compressor numrique competitor, and I practice since 1987.

In short, I am not at all falls under the spell of sound and practicable under the interface. Ex: In some preset, the passage of a ratio of 1.5 / 1 2 / 1 trs strongly modifies the sound: an unusual rate plutt modest.

Convinced of the 3-band compression, I thought back to the advantages of digital and benefitted the flexibility of preset. Finally, it does not (I got)

I let a little time to find her qualities, but we will have to impress me!

Otherwise, the quality of liberalization and the ratio quality / price trs good (if you like the sound of treatment).

rhinoceros's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Transparency and quality"

TC Electronic C300
Dual compressor / deeseur or expander / gate mono
Lots of presets for all purposes, single-band compression, multi-band limiter with with adjustable threshold, ratio and output gain. 4 rows of 6 LEDs.
Serial or parallel routing
I / O and digital jack (RCA)


With the presets is very easy to use. The result is always very clean. The adjustment of mix is ​​what really differentiates it from other compressors.
The manual is very complete as always with tc electronic on the other hand, settings of attack and release are pre-set in the presets and the manual does not mention it ...
The digital input is nice to connect the output of an MPC1000 for example!


The fact mix the compressed signal with the original signal allows a parallel compression, the collars are low and high levels are not affected. It's exellent on soft sources like voice, or acoustic. The mix is ​​0, is in bypass, 100% is a traditional compressor.

The expander / gate is also effective for recording without background noise like a tube amp that breath a bit between two riffs.


I use it for 2 years, I had a dbx (286a), bof bof, AC Soufli not bad. I also had a JOEMEEK threeQ which was very good. The C300 is a bit more transparent.

+ Ratio quality / price
+ Transparency
+ Connection possibilities

- No tuning attack / release
