Drawmer 1978 - Stereo Tone Shaping FET Compressor

  • Fast Reacting Stereo FET Design compressor
  • Threshold, Ratio, Attack and Release controls and Gain Reduction Metering
  • 4 Character switches provide a multitude of compression flavor combinations
  • Comprehensive side chain EQ giving simultaneous control of frequency and level of filtering
  • Variable Wet/Dry Mix plus Output Gain Knobs give a 'Parallel Compression' function
  • 2 Analogue V.U. Meters with Switchable +10dB Meter Rescale Mode
  • Time delay relays on outputs for clean power up/down
  • Internal Low Hum Toroidal Linear Power Supply with Voltage Selector Switch

The award winning Drawmer 1978 builds on the success of the 1973 multiband FET compressor and adorns an unparalleled array of controls to give complete mastering over your mix, and all in a deceptively simple 1U frame.

In addition to the usual Ratio, Threshold, Attack and Release controls, the 1978 features four character switches offering a wide range of compression flavours, as well as a variable saturation control to add harmonic distortion to the signal. Side chain functionality is also included with side chain insert points on both channels and a very comprehensive and flexible Side Chain EQ section which offers LF and HF controls with a choice of specific shapes and frequencies for precise frequency-conscious compression such as de-essing. A wet/mix control also allows you to blend the processed signal with the dry for parallel compression.

In addition, a fast reacting Dual colour backlit VU Meter is employed to provide a visual indication of the amount of saturation added. Time delay relays are incorporated into the outputs to provide clean power-up and down with no pops or bangs, and a low hum toroidal linear power supply. The Drawmer 1978 is a truly flexible compressor made in the UK with high-quality components.

The 1978 is a Buss Compressor like no other - compression with character, controlled distortion, tonal shaping, wet/dry mixing - others have tried but have never managed to build a compressor that is this versatile and yet intuative. It's never been easier to get that elusive characteristic sound that sets you apart from the rest. Glue your mix, bring out the bass, control the highs, add warmth, distortion, smoothen, widen, sound less digital more analogue - and at a price that's right for even the smallest studio. Winner of the Resolution Award 2016 in the dynamics category.
