Telenordia TK-23 Kompressor



The TK-23 Kompressor is a powerful musical instrument effects unit that automatically reduces audio peaks and/or raises the level of soft passages. An electro-optical attenuation system that provides up to about 25dB of gain reduction provides a fast, but natural sounding compression effect. A special feature of the TK-23 is the possibilty to alter its response to strong transients by reducing its sensitivity to peaks without changing the attack time. This makes the TK-23 especially useful for highly dynamic, attack-rich instruments like electric guitars or basses.

As the internal circuitry is, like all Telenordia products, derived from the germanium transistor-based TA-23 Booster, the TK-23 shall not be considered a linear, but rather a unique device with a prominent sound characteristic.

The unit may be powered from a single 9V battery or a 7-18V DC external power supply.
