Compact, Uncompromising Sound and Features

Compact, Uncompromising Sound and Features
Impressive mixing capacity in a small package
Compact Size: 749 (W) × 626 (D) × 229 (H) mm Light Weight: 9.8kg
The M-300 V-Mixer is the ultimate solution for a variety of venues and applications. It provides a substantial mixing
capacity of 32 mixing channels, 8 aux
buses, 4 matrices, which represent the
highest level in its class. The M-300
V-Mixer seamlessly integrates with
other RE AC devices. The user can
dire ctly ope rate the D igital Sna ke
preamp, control an M-48 Personal Mixer, and set up the I/O for the S-4000M
REAC Merge Unit. All of these features are contained in a very compact size
of 749mm width x 626mm depth x 229mm height, and at a weight of 9.8kg
(21 lbs 10 oz). The M-300 is the perfect choice for any venue with a limited
set-up area, as well as for mobile sound reinforcement. Optional rack rails
are also available.
Powerful Built-in Channel Effects
Equalization of channels and dynamics are the foundation of any great mix.
The enhanced sound shaping abilities of the M-300 input channels include
4-band fully parametric EQ as well as gate and compression. A Key-In filter
can be used for the Gate/Compressor to enable more expressive mixing.
The 4 multi-effects processors can be set to use any of 11 different effects
types. In addition to Reverb and Delay, modulation effects such as Chorus
and Phaser are also available. The M-300’s busses are also equipped with
8 bands of fully Parametric EQ and Signal Delay on each Aux, Matrix and
Main output. The M-300 is fully equipped with all of the sound adjustment
tools built-in and ready to go.
Built-in 2 REAC ports allows flexible system configuration

Advanced Control Surface Design
The M-380 and M-400 V-Mixers are highly regarded for their ease of use
and the M-300 continues this tradition starting with 17 x 100mm motorized
faders. Central to the M-300’s operation is a high-resolution 800x480 pixel
color display. Channel Parameters such as Gain, Pan, EQ and Dynamics
can be comfortably operated from the Channel Edit section located on the
left side of the display. All parameters can be instantly saved and recalled
from Scene Memory. The layers of faders can be easily switched with the
LAYER button. Faders can be accessed and arranged freely, and saved as
a User Layer.
Cutting Edge Features
Record the output of the M-300 Main, assigned
AU X b u s o r M AT R I X b u s d i re c tl y to a U S B
memory drive connected to the built-in USB port.
A mix produced with the M-300 can be saved as
an uncompressed WAV file, without the need for
an ex ternal recorder. WAV files on the USB
memory drive can also be played back on the
M-300 and used for background music/tracks.
User settings and mixer data can also be saved
to a USB memory drive.
The M-300 interfaces with a variety of devices
Control remotely from a PC
The M-300 can be controlled remotely in real-time from a PC (Windows) connected via
the USB port. Mixing functions on the M-300 can be operated directly from a PC by
using the M-300RCS dedicated control software which has the same GUI as the M-300
color display. (The M-300RCS can be downloaded from the Roland Systems Group
website.) The M-300RCS can also be operated
i n of f l i n e m o d e, a ll ow i ng d ata fo r va r i o u s
settings to be created in advance and saved to
a USB memor y drive. When you get to the
venue, load the settings and jump right into
sound check and rehearsal.

USB memory recorder/player
Control remotely using a wireless LAN
By enabling Remote Desktop Connection on a local PC
directly connected to the M-300 via the USB, the
M-300 can be controlled remotely from another PC
using a wireless L AN. A tablet PC can be used to
control the M-300 from a remote location. For example,
you can be seated in the audience to adjust the house
mix during the rehearsal, or stand onstage to adjust the
monitor mix while consulting the stage performer. The
M-300 enables new mixing possibilities that you could
never achieve with an analog console.
Multi-channel recording to a DAW
For ty channels of 24-bit audio can be recorded directly to a PC ( Windows) by
connecting a REAC port to the gigabit Ethernet port on the PC via a single Cat5e
cable. Audio is recorded as individual WAV files using Cakewalk SONAR and can be
m i xe d af te r re c o rd i n g u s i n g th e
p owe r f u l dig i ta l au dio to o ls a n d
effects in SONAR.
V-LINK - Audio and Visual Solution
By connecting the MIDI input/output to the video switcher such as the V-1600HD,
V-LINK automatically synchronizes the audio of the M-300 with the visual images
allowing “audio follows video”.
* To use this feature, the REAC driver is required
in addition to SONAR.

* When a REAC Splitter S-4000D or a switching hub is used in-line with REAC cables, the network latency will increase by the amount of
processing delay introduced by the splitting device itself. The actual delay is dependant upon the specifications of the splitting device, though
the maximum delay amount for a single splitting device should be about 200microseconds.
