[Musikmesse] Klark Teknik DN540
Klark Teknik has launched the DN540 Creative Quad Compressor, one of two new products in a brand new series - The DN540 has four channels of compression into a 1U chassis.
Leading features of the KT DN540 include:
- Quad channel compressor
- Ease of use, requiring minimum set up to produce excellent results
- "Harmonic Enhancement" presence control to correct loss of detail and intelligibility during compression without increasing noise or likelihood of feedback
- Sonic design which has been "tuned by ear" to produce extremely transparent compression
- Advanced envelope generator with manual controls for creative dynamic effects
- Intuitive controls for all functions contributing to output levels
- Easily identifiable bypass, solo and other major switches, with status LEDs
- Channel linking with true power summing to provide true threshold setting for stereo material
- External sidechain inputs
- 1U chassis
- Balanced inputs and outputs
- Auto switching power supply
Anticipated applications of the new KT DN540 include, according to Klark:
- Protecting signal paths from amplitude overload
- Improving the apparent power of signals when an artists' performance is a little too dynamic
- Maintaining a stable signal level to help an instrument sit within a mix
- Changing the percussive timbre of an instrument to enhance impact
- Compressing a mix so that it maintains a stable signal level (typically to make it sound louder)
- Changing the percussive timbre of a mix to make it sound fuller and to enhance impact
- Frequency conscious compression to remove unwanted sibilance or undesired tonal artefacts via external sidechain
