KT Square ONE with Porcupine Tree
2 January 2007
UK - Long-time Klark Teknik and Midas enthusiast Ian Bond has been using the recently-launched Square ONE Dynamics unit for UK rockers Porcupine Tree on their recent DVD promotional tour of Europe and the US.
The Square ONE range is designed for ease of use and good sound at an affordable price point. Apart from these obvious advantages, Bond was appreciative of the eight channels of flexible, configurable, high-performance dynamics processing included in the 3U Dynamics unit. For the Porcupine Tree gigs, the unit was used to process the drum kit, with six gates across the kick and toms and two compressors used on the top of the two snares. "The compressors worked well in vintage mode, giving the snare more edge," he says. "The gates were also extremely good, very quick and, because of the different closing threshold, were all but transparent."
Porcupine Tree will be touring their new album in 2007 with the SQ1 Dynamics taking pride of place in Bond's FOH touring rack.
