  • Klark Teknik DN530 Creative Quad Gate

    FOH Staff | New Gear | April 1, 2009
    Klark Teknik’s DN530 Creative Quad Gate features Transient Accenting, which is designed to let users enhance the attack envelope beyond merely opening the gate. This can provide up to 12dB of additional transient energy, and its primary application is to provide additional impact on drums and percussion instruments. It can also be used to enhance the impact of acoustic stringed instruments such as guitar and piano. Transient Accenting also gives users control over the amount of enhancement applied to each channel of processing. The DN530 can also add a creative flare to drum channels with its accent feature, which can also reduce the need for excessive EQ or compression. Read More...
