Sonalksis SV-719 Gate - Electronic Delivery – No Longer Available

Multi-function expander processor modeled on vintage expander circuits
MFR# 719

Product Description

The Sonalksis SV-719 is an multi-function expander processor modelled on vintage expander circuits. Whether you want a classic gated drum effect, or are trying to tame a dynamic bass line, the 'true analogue' SV-719 will give noticeably more traditional results. While a gate is not usually the most inspiring of audio processors, typical 'digital' gates sound very different to analogue units due to the subtleties of the way the gate opens and closes, so to achieve certain sounds - like a tight classic 'disco' drumbeat - an analogue style gate is the only way forward.

The SV-719 is among the most extensively featured gate/expanders available. With external side-chain inputs, multiple band side-chain filtering, midi triggering capability, and independent left/right channel triggering possibilities, you are unlikely to ever require more from a gate. In addition there is also a Ducking mode, and a hybrid analogue/digital signal path allows look-ahead processing for extra flexibility.

The Sonalksis SV-719 Features:

The SV-719 intimately models the characteristics of a real analogue processor to capture the nuances of an analogue gate, so the SV-719 is perfect if you are after that classic gated drum effect. With control over not only the 'hold' time, but also the more traditional 'hysteresis' found on vintage gates, you can fine tune the gate with absolute precision, and avoid 'chattering' artifacts.

This plugin is capable of much more than just classic gating: the 'Expansion' mode allows for more subtle noise reduction, or de-emphasis of background disturbances, while 'Ducking' mode - normally a feature for voice-over work - can also be used creatively to de-emphasize audio which might cloud a mix when there's too much going on. The external side-chain can be set up to listen to critical sections of the mix, and the SV-719 can then automatically gently trim portions of a track to create space for the mix to breathe.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
