WORCESTERSHIRE, England � Based off the company�s earlier 1176LN model, Klark Teknik has announced that the 1176-KT FET-style compressor is now available for shipping. The new model features a modernized and discrete signal path that utilizes MIDAS input and output transformers.
The 1176-KT compressor offers four ratios: 4:1 for moderate compression; 8:1 for severe compression; 12:1 for mild limiting; and 20:1 for hard limiting. An �all-button� mode is included for vocals and microphones. An attack knob is also available for to adjust the time it takes for the compressor to respond audio that exceeds the threshold. This is accompanied by a release knob to adjust how long the compressor remains engaged after incoming audio falls below the threshold. In a nod to the original 1176LN model, an illuminated VU meter applies visual confirmation of gain reduction and output level based on which meter button is selected.
The compressor comes in a 2U steel rack mount enclosure and features Neutrik XLR connectors for audio connection. Universal power supply with auto-voltage sensing is also included.
