Burnsville, MN (April 24, 2009)–Klark Teknik has launched its DN530 Creative Quad gate and DN540 Creative Quad compressor, two products in the company’s new analog processing series. The DN530 offers quad gates, while the DN540 houses four channels of compression. Both are 1U boxes.
The DN530 boasts “Transient Accenting,” a feature which reportedly enhances the attack envelope beyond merely opening the gate. This can provide up to 12 dB of additional transient energy, and its primary application is to provide additional impact on drums and percussion instruments, although it can be used to enhance the impact of acoustic stringed instruments such as guitar and piano as well as other instruments.
The DN540 has been designed with a “Harmonic Enhancement” presence control to preserve the harmonic content of the material in a “more natural, dynamic state. This allows more compression to be applied, providing greater control of program dynamics, without the source material sounding dull, lacking in detail and unnatural.”
