  • 500 RANGE MODULES FOR API (VPR ALLIANCE) RACKS:

    TK Audio offers a range of extremely useful, high quality modules for the popular API 500 format:


















    Our opinion: High quality analog tools, with great headroom and excellent noise performance. These well designed modules will help you get the best out of your API rack set up.

    • TK Audio T-Komp 500:
      A new compressor with a unique design, the key feature is the ratio, which is level dependent and increases with the signal level, like the vari mu compressors. To make it as useful as possible the T-Komp has two ratio ranges. The first one goes up to 20:1, perfect for instrument tracking and smashing drums etc., the second one is a more narrow range which makes it more suitable for bus compression. The RMS detector has five settings, four from fast to slow where number four, the slowest, is similar to the old 160VU. The fifth position is a program dependent adaptive mode. It is also equipped with a blend control for easy parallel compression. The T-Komp is the perfect workhorse both for tracking and mixing.

      • Level dependent ratio which increases with the signal level just like vari-mu compressors.
      • Two ratio ranges, 1:1 to 20:1 or 1:1 to 2:1.
      • Five RMS settings, four from fast to slow and a program dependent adaptive mode.

A high pass filter with a 12dB slope is also provided, and each channel has it s own level control with a range from infinity to +6dB. Using the built in M/S function, you can adjust the middle and side signals separately before it is decoded back to a normal L/R signal.

  • TK Audio BC1 THD (Released Feb. 2019):

    This is one of the most transparent stereo bus compressors ever made, it s manufactured and assembled in Sweden and thoroughly tested before leaving the factory.

  • TK Audio TK-LIZER (TK LIZER) 2 / MKII:

    TK's new TK-lizer 2 is a Baxandall type of EQ, high and low bands are selectable between shelving or bell, very useful for fine tuning of your low s, mid s and high s. The EQ also has a built in M/S function which lets you process the mid and side signals separately. You can also affect the stereo width of your music by using the level controls in M/S mode. The three bands are based on the legendary Baxandall circuit from the 50 s. Available in black or limited edition brushed silver.

The first one goes up to 20:1, perfect for instrument tracking and smashing drums etc., the second one is a more narrow range which makes it more suitable for bus compression. The T-Komp can be selected between feed-forward mode for a punchy, modern response or feed-back mode with a smoother, more musical response. The RMS detector has five settings, four from fast to slow where number four, the slowest, is similar to the old 160VU. The fifth position is a program dependent adaptive mode. It is also equipped with a blend control for easy parallel compression, a HPF-filter to make it less sensitive to low energy like bass and kick drum, and for stereo use there is a link switch.

    Our opinion: A new concept from TK, totally different from any other VCA driven compressor, perfect for tracking or sub group control.

    • Overview:
      • Designed as a the perfect workhorse both for tracking and mixing.
      • Level dependent ratio which increases with the signal level just like vari-mu compressors.
      • Two ratio ranges, 1:1 to 20:1 or 1:1 to 2:1.
