Porter & Davies Launch New KT Platform For Keyboardists
Porter & Davies are proud to announce the launch of the new KT Platform which is perfect for keyboardists. The company are world leaders in silent tactile monitoring systems and have completely re-engineered the KT Platform giving it improved frequency response as well as making it lighter, more robust, and easier to handle. They have also expanded the KT Platform range to include a choice of power and size options. Keyboardists can now experience more than ever the exciting, intense physicality of the music they make!
The KT Platform will give keyboardists an onstage experience they never thought possible allowing them to hear and feel what they are playing and what their fellow musicians are playing too. They can choose what instruments they want their system to monitor and receive a significant tactile connection enabling better on-stage dynamics.
The band Blossoms has just purchased a KT Concert Platform and their keyboardist Myles Kellockused it at their Wembley gig supporting The Stone Roses. Keyboardist James Wyatt (Lianne La Havas) says his ‘...gigging experience has improved greatly’ since using his KT Platform. Jon Beckford (Billy Ocean) explains ‘there is no turning back with its attack, the rhythm becomes your backbone’.
The KT Platform is a two-unit system consisting of the ‘Platform’ and the ‘Engine’:
The Platform is a ‘podium’ with a tactile sound transducer which the user stands on when performing. The original KT Platform, featuring a superior 150w transducer, has been redesigned to feel more responsive, have a greater active area and is very robust. It is now joined by two new versions. TheTT6 Equipped KT Platform uses the TT6 1,000w super-transducer and like the TT6 Equipped Throne it can be driven by a stage amp from the monitor desk. Many touring bands and rental companies have requested the option to drive their P&D gear in this way. The third version, the KT Concert Platformalso features the TT6 transducer and is twice the size of the other KT Platforms.
The Engine contains all the electronics: Amp, preamp, inputs and outputs, protection circuitry and volume and tone controls. The engine comes in three styles: The BC2, rackmountable BC2rm and theGigster. All have identical build quality, power, performance and the same controls, Input Gain, Master Volume and Low Contour. The BC2 and BC2rm have a voltage switch for full international flexibility compared to the Gigster’s set voltage which makes it lighter and more portable. The BC2 has an inbuilt flight case making it ideally suited to touring and travel.
The KT Platform can also be beneficial to guitarists, bass players, stand-up percussionists, DJs, singers using in-ears and the same technology can be used to produce active staging.
