In what situations do you personally use the soft limit?

do you use it very often?

if you are using it, would you normally use the SL or the SLC setting, and with SLC which setting do you usually use?

il be running my MME on its maiden voyage for JMP w/fishman on friday. in a very small venue (canopy club, champaign illinois), with the section being FOB and maybe only 20 yards at most from the stage. il be running AKG 483s > MME > D8 if that matters.

The only time tyo use it IMHO is when the crowd is well louder than the music at points.  Say you are taping accoustic bluegrass, knowing that the crowd will have its level spike during applause, this is the time to use it.  I have never fooled around with the push it curves, I have however used soft limit on a few occassions.

Does the same go for the AD-1000 limiter?

ditto everything above...

remember, the minime is very forgiving... you can really push it, no need for soft limit 95% of the time

It is fogiving.  I run the mme hot as all hell and have yet to hear an audible over.  I tend to set levels where I bounce off red several times a set!

yeah, I've found the V3 to also be very forgiving as far as "overs" go...

it has certainly been interesting switching to the mod-sbm-1... I've had to be more conservative in level setting.

have fun, great unit!

Agreed Tim, both are very nice units and very forgiving as far as overs go.

running fixed gain pre>mme for acoustic music, you really need to and should use it. running standalone, probably never need it.

Why not run cards from the stage lip for JMP?  Shouldn't be a problem and your results should smoke any 60' tape!
