Klark Teknik has launched a new series of high-performance audio processors, Square ONE, which comprises the Square ONE graphic equalizer and the Square ONE dynamics, an 8-channel, 3U configurable dynamics processor. The graphic is shipping now; the dynamics unit will be available in January 2006.
Features of the Square ONE graphic 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 configurable, high-performance dynamics processing in a 3U package. Users can select the required mode of operation, allowing the multi-mode 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/3-color input meter and 10-segment attenuation depth meter.
