Klark Teknik recently launched a new series of easily accessible, high-performance audio processors called Square ONE. The Square ONE range comprises the Square ONE graphic equalizer and the Square ONE dynamics, an 8-channel, 3U-configurable dynamics processor. The Graphic is shipping now, and the Dynamics unit will be available from January 2006.
Features include 45mm faders with integral dust guards; signal present and clip LEDs; fully balanced inputs and outputs; relay-activated bypass; PROportional Q filters; highpass and lowpass filters; universal power supply; and 3U steel chassis.
The Square ONE Dynamics provides eight channels of flexible, configurable, high-performance dynamics processing in one 3U package. Users can select the required mode of operation, allowing the multimode dynamics processor to function as a default compressor (RMS sensing–type); “vintage” compressor (peak sensing–type); broadband frequency-conscious compressor; hi-Q frequency-conscious compressor (de-esser); limiter; expander; or gate. Square ONE Dynamics also provides i-TS (intelligent threshold shift) with the gate-hold function to reduce chattering within the gate; stereo and multichannel operation, solo bus operation; 6–segment, three-color input meter; and 10-segment attenuation depth meter.
