    APRS is good because of its gain without the compressor. Then activates or not Bouzin.
    The must know a little music. The compressor is usual rglages Tresher, attack and release a 4-position (fail) and level.
    This compression is terrible that simple rglage must spend time in a cost. Jolie still sound coming out of this machine is standard. But little Savre APRS blow in an unusable mix. a dribble by pushing earnings. The only pramp pose no problem and it is beautiful! Bandwidth wider than a highway. I have cable above the Flamingo Junoir (Violet Design) of NT2A Rode, A Se 2200T, My C012 Oktava, my Shure PG 56 and 52, finally I tried all my mics with almost all sources: Drum, Brass, Percussion, Strings Violin and Cello, Guitar Folk and Classical Guit Amplify and low voices and of course ...
    It's a matter of taste, but the quality is l. His masterly a political commitment to music.

    Compression is more like a limiter when same. The more you push the more it pramp limit. It works a little old you it seems like toft audio. Is the gain of changing its behavior. It lacks even nervosa with an attack to 0 it lets its micro-second switching time of inaction APRS is a real Less for him. Colmplexes on signals, such as a complete set of drums or Over Head is less "boring", but on a low .... Too bad. I did not even pass a mix deans but I really think it is almost done.

    Well I'm a fan. I've had the T Toft Audio Universal Audio of the art ...
    Apart from the original sounds about these brands. The 1960 sounds much more class than everything except the Universal of course.

    In between not tried is to rev it seems good quality too, but my machine was suffering from this. I rcupre rvis today by a luthier friend of mine in electronics.

    This problem has t often evokes in this forum. The between saturates and is unusable.
    My friend "you had a light skeleton, but the manufacturer also said that the Tagus saturates quickly ....... your machine suffers from anything, any components do not run ..."
    I dj saturated in the first quarter. he "should spend the first to have a nice Moitiers saturation ..."
    A change that I would come see Post.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Dj I just said? :)
    Transparency is everything for his ings, I make music:)
    I say pre amp prfre characters tried to get an ide!

    OVERALL OPINION

    APRS one year of use I just do rvis because it's worth it.

    At: the sound standard fat without losing DEFINITIONS.

    Cons: The attack of the compressor fast enough.

    On occasion, the price of 800 to 100 make a big deal.

    I think the other test product from Drawmer to see.

    So in sound! is falling! you heat the BCAN 1 2 hours, until the lamps are heated through and the case is in the box! the sound is transcribed without Souis ... the sound image is perfectly clear and well restored, treble and bass madness! Lamps provide a lgre color but not too ... a unique sound for an acoustic guitar like Martin or J200.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this bte yesterday, bought at Home studio promo ... c'tait the last chance the stock car specials APRS fly ...
    What I like about this BCAN The definition is superb sound and heat lamps, nothing to do with the type SPP least Honner, Aphex, Art Berhinger or other ... none!
    I had the opportunity in my short begins CF career at home studio of SSAI lot of PRMP etr comprsseurs of cheaper, but the adpasse all that my ears have heard .. .
    or the price I pay it's going to remain a matter ... but by 2300 ex, has become expensive, but the shot is worth it, and then c pro gear that sounds serious! !
    If I had to make another choice, I will take this machine again! Lover of vintage sound warm and well Defines ...

    Transistor preamp, 2 channel tube compressor

    UTILIZATION

    Easy to use, basic but adequate manual. The kind of machine that branch in two minutes and is forgotten

    SOUND QUALITY

    His pro, beautiful and subtle fine detail rendering. Compressor at low audible side effects, unless you push the lamps in their last retrachements. Preamp, solid state, worth a visit. It is possible to let the sound of the compressor without the lights that it comes into action, just to change the sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Fragile, he bought OCCAZ t, he left for the deuxime rparationen two times I ans.Mais lugs around a lot and then apparently Premire sries taient + fragile .



    SOUND QUALITY

    Colors strong. This prampli "puts bote" your sounds. Sometimes it's good, sometimes not.
    Personally, I think it brings the voices by giving them a serious individual, quite imposing. It is soft enough as a compressor but the color is nice, trs rock of the beginning of the 90s I think. If you have a plugin L1 at home and you trir lgrement the Tresher down, looks like a serious point of view. I always wanted to try it with an SM7, a flanger, I'm sure we'll get the sound of Kurt Cobain's voice on Nevermind.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I think.
    Particulire color, works well on rock guitars need a leash. Pieces or "smooth" jazz that we need a little depth.
    On this particular vote, far from being transparent, the color that gives nanmoins walk quite well and strong voice for the Cree, it works because it assaults you less. This is a compressor soft, like a smoker's voice. An alternative swallow some color in an otherwise + chandler avecun serious drool a bit more.

    The major weakness is the reliability but it may be my SERIES. So if you j'tais, j'achterais the dernire. It is a machinequi begins dating, lamps + is ... lesvieux capacitors, lamps, old power supply, do not get along with the 'travel and live conditions.
    Qd I take, I always wonder if a going to be fine, even SIIL is totalementrvis ... He looks fragile, m WO bored once or twice, it's even embtant qd.

    It is the professional equipment, we agree. It Drawmer, sounded beautifully. I think it's a machine dansson have to look a little rack in a production. But it is not versatile, I think there are better options for transitional and lesinstruments "tessitura" serious.

    The Drawmer 1960 is a stereo compressor with a tube preamp section. His reference was probably connected with a vintage where the processors that operated according to this technology occupied the vast majority of the market (the transistor was introduced in 1947).
    This machine has a number of peculiarities, which sets it apart from other compressors in this category. Thus, it is possible to plug a quarter inch jack on the front, an electric guitar or bass, or even a keyboard. This auxiliary input can be assigned to one and one or two channels of compression.

    The Drawmer 1960 is a stereo compressor with a tube preamp section. His reference was probably connected with a vintage where the processors that operated according to this technology occupied the vast majority of the market (the transistor was introduced in 1947).
    This machine has a number of peculiarities, which sets it apart from other compressors in this category. Thus, it is possible to plug a quarter inch jack on the front, an electric guitar or bass, or even a keyboard. This auxiliary input can be assigned to one and one or two channels of compression. It is equipped with three knobs, one for bass, one treble and one for the gain, the latter being assisted by a switch to select between high and low input level, which is its universality.
    It is possible, by means of another switch, to set off the tone control circuit. Another adds brightness, which is great on a guitar.
    This compressor is also used as a stereo microphone preamplifier, whose earnings are adjustable over a range of 60 dB. Each channel can receive four different types of modulation, that is selected by a rotary switch, auxiliary input, or line input, balanced, available on a backside XLR or microphone or dynamic either static, as it is equipped with a Drawmer phantom power.
    For the use of microphones, although the key works on all inputs, we can attenuate the signal through a high pass from 50 or 100 Hz ..


    UTILIZATION

    The attack time is not adjustable, which may some rough "fignoleurs sounds", indeed, only three positions are available, fast, medium and slow. careful selection of the attack, because the response time too quickly can, as the modulation within the compressor, creating a pumping effect.
    A pair of VU meters provide information on needle-level output or gain reduction. This is done gently, with a ratio which the rate adjusts to the music program.
    A key three-position means you can play side-chain "or a parallel input / output available on the back panel because of a jack per channel. Following the same connactique, insertion, this time, so a serial link exists for each channel, with a jack in and out at +4 dBu and another rated at -10 dBu.
    It loosens the bonds connections with the outside and can avoid the small facilities, provision of a patch .. The output using the same key switches the compressor out of service, bypass.
    In this mode, the input is not switched directly to the output, but passes through the tubes which is the Benefit of "heat" and density ", as a simple quality stereo preamplifier, and I insist .. dine on this point: tube.


    SOUND QUALITY

    This kind of apparatus belonging to the family of dynamics processors must not, in principle, be heard, unless you want to deliberately create a special effect. The relaxation time is infinitely adjustable, it fits in the ear.
    We are far enough compressors tubes of yesteryear, because they owned several tube rectifiers, chosen for their characteristics, and one could choose, depending on the rectifier tube selected, the shape of the compression curve.
    The solution adopted by Drawmer remains a good compromise.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The heat pipes and the sweetness is there, that the stamps are fully respected, the mic inputs are technical marvels. the sound is very nice, gentle compression is to wish and fulfills its role perfectly, with remarkable stealth ..

    Drawmer 1960Published on 04/09/10 at 21:11
    The Drawmer 1960 is a stereo vacuum tube based preamplifier and compressor. It is made up of analog components and aims to blend the sound of old and new. Each of the two channels has both XLR mic and line inputs as well as a single XLR output for each as well. It then has 1/4" connections for audio patch and side chain inserts. IT also has a 1/4" input in the front under the auxiliary input section. It is in rackable form and will take up two spaces in total.

IT also has a 1/4" input in the front under the auxiliary input section. It is in rackable form and will take up two spaces in total.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration of the Drawmer 1960 has a good amount going on, as there is a lot of control over your sound with this. However, nothing is too out of the ordinary, so if you're familiar with preamps and compressors you will definitely feel at ease here. Each channel has a few different sections to work with for your preamp, the compressor, and your auxiliary input. The aux input section contains parameters for bass, treble, and gain, as well as switches to switch on the EQ, a normal/bright setting, and for choosing either a high or low impedance for the input. There are then two knobs for gain under the microphone section, and parameters for source, threshold, attack, release, and gain under the compression header. Each channel also has it's own meter with options for viewing either gain reduction or output level. A manual isn't necessary I don't think, but I haven't seen one so I can't comment on it's make up.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound of the Drawmer 1960 is absolutely top notch. I've used it primarily on lead vocals, but also used the compressor on snare drum and the mic preamps electric and acoustic guitar. In general the 1960 is versatile, so I believe it would be able to adapt to just about any application that you wanted to use with it. This is the benefit of having so many features and options, as it allows you to shape your sound to be suitable for all sorts of situations. The sound of the Drawmer 1960 in general can be described as creamy, warm, and quite vibrant. I'm a big fan of both the preamps and the compressors, as they both have a similar sort of quality to them. It is generally hard to describe the sound of something in words, so if you're really interested I'd highly recommend checking it out for yourself.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The Drawmer 1960 is a stellar choice for a high end stereo microphone preamplifier and compressor. It has pretty much everything that you'd look for in such an item, and getting two channels for the price is a really great thing. Honestly, I could see something like the Drawmer 1960 being this much money for a single channel. While still most likely out of the price range for your average home studio owner, this would be the perfect investment for a home studio owner looking to take their recordings to another level as this is definitely a professional piece of gear worth knowing about.
