he was impressed with the C300's ability to work with DAWs, as well as its
ability to handle multi-channel input sources. "A lot of our business revolves
around stereo source material that is multi-channel and clearly the C300 enjoys
the most sophisticated and elegant handling of this task," he notes. "For
instance, when you bring in a six-channel mix on the C300, you can control an
entire six-channel mix with one channel. This really helps to save on console
resources and greatly improves our workflow."

include Rambo 4,
featuring Sylvester Stallone, and Elegy, with Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz.
