Sounds great live
Got this for live application, with a Yamaha M7CL mixer (AD8 preamps) and Meyer PA. With the detail in those tops, our onboard effects etc all came up short. Tried a few rack units including the M-One and a couple Lexicons, and decided to stick with TC and go with the M3000. I'm not a studio guy, but I've heard a couple dozen processors live and this is by FAR my favorite. I find that the VSS-3 models in this unit are a perfect union of 'real' and 'lush' that is musically inspiring. Highly recommend.
