Klark Teknik DN530 overview

  • 1Description

The Klark Teknik DN530 Creative Quad Gate is a professional, 4-channel rack mounted analog gate for professional recording and sound reinforcement. The gate features 4 balanced XLR inputs and outputs, summed output and side-chain connection per channel.

The DN530 compliments the plug-in laden digital world of signal processing by offering enhanced "Transient Accenting" characteristics to gated signals. Enhance the attack envelope beyond merely opening the gate, and provide up to 12dB of additional transient energy to drums, percussion instruments, piano guitars and much more. In many cases the DN530's control over transients may prove to be a viable alternate to EQ.

Quad channel gate
It features a unique progressively controllable accent level that emphasizes the start of a signal to increase the dynamic power within percussive signals
Gate attack is exponential which means it can be set extremely fast to reduce signal loss at the start of sounds while remaining sonically transparent - no clicks
Gate release is reverse exponential so it can be set relatively fast and blend in seamlessly with the natural decay of the material
Designed from an exemplary technical point of view, features extremely low noise and distortion levels
The gate features an advanced band pass side chain filter to increase trigger source discrimination
The gate provides rotary controls for all envelope characteristics and range
External key inputs and ducking facilities are provided
The status of bypass, solo and other major switches are boldly presented to avoid mistakes
Road worthy chassis
Balanced outputs
Auto switching power supply
1U Rack Mount Chassis
