    I have a KT-2A which I use for recording and compression of bass guitar or electric guitar, and for singing ofcourse. The way I do this is:

    - for the bass and guitar via a mic in front of the cabinet, and singing via a voice mic

    - input that into a voice preamp, in this case a Tascam TA-1VP

    - output that to the KT-2A

    and in that case the KT-2A works fine, the meter responds as an indication that the signal is processed.

    HOWEVER, what I also want is to add the KT-2A to the effects loop of my guitar amp, and this is what does not work:

    - send the preamp signal of my guitar amp (Marshall JVM or Fender tube amp) to a DI box input

    - connect the XLR output of the passive DI box to the microphone input of the TACAM TA-1VP

    - output that to the KT-2A and connect the KT-2A output to the return of the effects loop of the guitar amp

    In that case the meter of the KT-2A does not respond no matter how I set the peak reduction knob: the meter stays on zero.

    I suspect the output of the SEND of the guitar amp is too different from the microphone output, even it I have a DI box in between. So how can I get the KT-2A to work in an effects loop of a guitar amp?

      DaveMorrison Does it work when you directly connect the amp's preamp out to the KT-2A's input? This would be the normal connection method. The pre amp level may be to low to drive the KT-2A since there is no input level control. Maybe a -10 to +4 level box will be needed to bring the instrument level up to the "pro" level that the compressor expects. Or use a compressor that has input gain. The original LA-2A was designed for radio stations which have consistent broadcast levels.

    Last year I bought a Shark FBQ100 from my local vendor. Estimated delivery time were January this year. When January came, the delivery date got moved to April. The month came and went without and update.

    I contacted the vendor this month, and the response was that it isn't on stock in China. Other vendors abroad have either removed it from their sites or has delivery dates many months into the future. No specifics were available regarding production status.

    So, I try to seek an answer, hopefully from a more direct source.

    Has this become a discontinued product? Any status regarding production?

    Some clarification would be appreciated.

    I apologize, had trouble finding an e-mail to contact, or an appropriate channel to direct this question.

      Paul_Vannatto Good chance that they have been held up due to the chip shortage, like many other electronic devices and automotive vehicles.

    Hello,

    I have seen recently that the LA-2A type compressor initially called KT-2A is now named 2A-KT?

    Hi everyone,

    I recently purchased the 76-kt compressor and im absolutely loving it. I am aware of the rear vu meter adjustment pot as stated in the start up guide but there is also a small hidden screw directly underneath the vu meter that i have messed around with (which i regret doing) i dont know why i messed with it, i was just curious what it did. 

    Im worried ive somehow messed up the calibration now as i presume this screw is factory set and shouldnt be altered. I can see that you can turn it clockwise and anticlockwise one turn and then it becomes stiff, you then screw further past that stiffness and it sort of resets to the loose, clockwise/anticlockwise setting as before.

    Am i ruining the screw by turning it over and over to see what it does? is it some sort of spring that i am unwinding?

    Id really appreciate any technical information to settle my mind on how this screw works and what you should do with, if i have perhaps ruined it by over turning it, or if i am just worrying too much?

    Thanks ever so much in advance.

    Trying to wrap my head around how to use the compressor section on the DCX2496. I understand it's intended to be used for ducking & de-essing. But has anyone figured out how to use it as an overall "mix-bus" so to speak? If I left the EQ flat and engaged the compressor, would that work?

      DavidKnighton Hello Zach,
      are you asking how to use compression in general or how best to use it with the actual product? Compression is generally used to the audio peaks down while lifting the soft audio. Ducking is a type of compression that pulls the audio down when another source is playing. Example, a bingo hall wants to play music, but they also need to announce. The announce mic will trigger the ducker to lower the music so the announce is more prevalent in the mix. If you want to just use a compressed audio, then it's possible to do so, just don't engage any of the other elements, such as EQ, Crossover functions, etc.

      • Compressor Section on DCX2496
        ZachMalinowski Sorry I'm just getting back. I understand how Dynamic EQ works. I just want to use this function as a compressor. I've attached photos on how 's currently set up--- Basically have a low shelf that I pulled to to -7dB. Then I have the threshold at -15dB, ration at 6:1. In theory, since I didn't pick out specific frequency bands, It technically should act as a basic compressor, yes? I am using the limiters, but I wanted some compression to glue the low end together, and didn't want the limiters to have to brick-wall everything.

    Is there any ready to use setting for acoustic guitar?

    What would be the best settings for both fingerstyle and strumming.

    Thanks

      WilliamR Hello PaoloTrulli, William from musictribe here. I would start out by experimenting with the toneprint FullbandComp1. This toneprint has a wider range that works well for acoustic guitar. Tweek it in the toneprint editor to fit your particular needs.

        PaoloTrulli Thanks I will follow your suggestion but I can`t belive that nobody already made a toneprint...

    I was recently made aware of the bypass on the 76-KT, and was wondering if the KA-2A has an option?

    Hi KT team, I've followed a previous post from before Xmas and contacted suppliers re availability of a pair of 2As in a bundle I need.

    Thomann replied with "sold out and not expecting any more". Please can you advise if 2A has been discontinued, I'm ready to order a pair of 2As, a pair of 76s and a dimension.
