This used Klark Teknik SQ1D 8-Channel Dual-Mode Compressor/Gate includes a Power Cable.
This unit is in good condition with normal wear from use, has been tested, and works great. Please see pictures for details on item condition - only what is pictured is included.
A veritable tool box of dynamics processing, SQ1D provides 8 channels of either compression or gating in a compact 3U high rack unit. This tightly integrated form factor allows the channels to be used together with ease, and includes highly flexible options for channel linking and side chain filtering and monitoring. SQ1D features multiple compression modes with combinations of RMS and Peak sensing and Hard and Soft Knee characteristics, ideal for both corrective and creative dynamics processing. In conjunction with the fully-featured noise gate and side chain options, one SQ1D can replace multiple other dynamics processors with considerable savings in space, weight and cost, with the confidence of knowing that whatever the application, SQ1D is more than capable of providing the required dynamic control of signal levels.
Intelligent Threshold Shift (iTS)
iTs operates in conjunction with the Gate Hold control to reduce false triggering of noise gates. When signals (especially low frequency ones) are very close to the gate threshold, a gate can repeatedly open and close on the program material. iTS ensures that the gate remains open by automatically adjusting the gate threshold downwards the moment the signal goes over the threshold setting. When the signal eventually falls below the (new) temporarily adjusted threshold, the iTS function resets, ready for the next gate opening. This hysteresis action results in more decisive operation of the noise gates, and attack envelopes also start instantly and consistently, even on signals that are only slightly over threshold.
Flexible Channel Linking
Adjacent channels can be linked in any combination for stereo or multichannel operation. When any number of adjacent channels are linked, the linked channels all adopt the operating mode (compressor or noise gate) of the left-hand channel of the linked group. This channel's settings now control all the members of that group, with only the make-up gain and Side chain filter frequency controls independent for optimizing the action of the compressor or gate for each channel.
