The Square ONE Dynamics from Klark Teknik provides eight complete channels of either compression or gating, with push button selection and LED status indication of operational mode on an individual channel basis. The unit is constructed to the same standards as the rest of the Klark Teknik range, while answering to more budget-sensitive applications.

Klark Teknik SQ1D Description:

The Square ONE Dynamics from Klark Teknik provides eight complete channels of either compression or gating, with push button selection and LED status indication of operational mode on an individual channel basis. The unit is constructed to the same standards as the rest of the Klark Teknik range, while answering to more budget-sensitive applications.

The compressor section on each channel includes controls for adjusting the threshold, make-up gain, attack, and release and ratio. The compressor can also be tailored to respond in a variety of modes, with push button selection of RMS or Vintage Emulation (Peak) response and selection of soft or hard knee mode on each channel.

The gate section also provides for adjustment of threshold, attack, hold and release times and range utilizing the same rotary control knobs. Additionally, there are individual rotary control knobs for make-up gain and hold.

Each channel has a sidechain band-pass filter with two different bandwidth settings for use in frequency dependent gating. Also included is an external sidechain input with LED status indication. A bypass switch sets the signal path to unity gain on each channel while providing LED status.

Klark Teknik SQ1D Features:

Eight-channel, multi-mode compressor and gate, selectable per channel
With both mode switches inactive the compressor behaves in the default Soft Knee and RMS mode. This gives the slowest (and most subtle) feel to the compressor envelopes
When Hard Knee and Vintage are activated the compressor operates with more precise envelope control and a defined transition between under and over threshold. This mode uses faster peak sensing (not RMS) like many older compressor designs with exponential attack and release
Functions as a broadband frequency-conscious compressor when the FILTER switch is activated in wide mode, allowing the user to sweep to a desired frequency and apply frequency-dependant compression
When the FILTER switch is activated in narrow mode, the compressor functions as a Hi-Q frequency-conscious compressor, especially useful for de-essing vocals
Can also function as a limiter or expander
Gate with adjustable Threshold, Attack, Hold and Release times to suit various program requirements
Sidechain FILTER allows the gate to be tuned to open at selected frequency in both wide or narrow modes
i-TS (intelligent threshold shift) in conjunction with the hold function, helps reduce gate chattering
Channels can be linked (in all modes) for stereo, or multi-channel operation. When any number of channels are linked, the linked channels all adopt the mode of the left-hand channel of the linked group
A dedicated Solo Output can monitor the sidechain filter during a performance
Each channel features a six-segment, three-colour input meter, and a ten-segment attenuation depth meter

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
