The M3000 is a multi-effects processor that houses two separate effect engines. The true dual engine configuration allows the user to run two full-blown effects simultaneously on two individual effects sends. Aside from being used in this manner, they can also work together in a number of combined configurations. The outputs of the two engines are mixed down to a common stereo output.

The reverb algorithms in the M3000 are built around VSS3 (Virtual Space Simulator) technology, which delivers a perfectly smooth tail with detailed early reflections. By employing a large number of directional taps, between 40 and 100, VSS3 is capable of simulating the sonic signature of actual rooms with greater precision. Additionally the unit provides a broad palette of quality effects, with access to a wide array of pitch shifting, delays, chorus, dynamics and more. Another unique feature is Dynamic Morphing. This function enables the user to apply a chorus effect, for example, to a vocal track at low volume levels, while at higher levels the effect is morphed into flanging, giving the signal a totally new dynamic dimension. The rate of morphing is user selectable.

In addition to balanced audio input and outputs, the M3000 provides AES/EBU and S/PDIF I/O's, and a handy feature called the Wizard. The Wizard is a tool that helps the user find the right preset for particular program material, by selecting from three sets of criteria (vocal, reverb and soft for example) within the Wizard display. The unit then provides a number of presets that meet those criteria.

A tap tempo function is ideal for matching the delay time to the tempo of a tune. Hitting the tap key to the tempo of the source material will set the delay time of the M3000 to match the beat. The tap tempo function can also set the parameter for reverb decay, chorus, flanger, phaser or tremolo speed.
