Tedjensen's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" This is a very good mid-range compressor"

Drawmer DL241 Auto Compressor
Compressor limited analog dual mono or stereo (stereo link) which boast a small expander / gate very useful and a bypass channel.
IN & OUT balanced XLR or TRS depending on the version
A small side chain would be welcome.
Manufacturing is strong enough.


Extremely simple, nothing special to report


He brings her little color is not completely neutral, it tends to cut some down and remove a little "air" but nothing unusual for this type of compress.
The limit used sparingly can be very interesting especially on snare drums.
A small downstream EQ is not too much (as almost always when you compress the signal)


This is a very good mid-range compressor.
This versatile usable insert Subgroup etc. ...
However it shows its limits on a master but it is ultimately not useful for this it was designed.
In the final few words he does the job and it's a very good value for money, I definitely rachèterais

Drawmer DL241 Auto Compressor
Comp, gate, limiter, a rack unit, input and output jacks




Transparent, does not alter the signal from my preamp (a hand compression) .5


5 years; unbeatable value for money, transparent, compact, less: jack connectors

sylv12's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good machine"

Drawmer DL241 Auto Compressor
2 channel compressor very classic with a small gate.
The parameters are comprehensive: Threshold / Ratio / Attack / Release / Output gain. For the gate is a threshold and a switch to determine the release (slow or fast.)
It also has a limited summary. (Just a threshold setting)
Note also a Stereo Link switch.
Connectivity levels 2 and IN 2 Out Side chain per channel.

There are two versions, one with I / O and one with XLR I / O TRS.

Also note that there is the model DL251, a little more, it has no gate but on the other hand has a mode "Enhance" that can flatter the top of the spectrum (an interesting snare or voice) and has a switch to get the knee to "Soft" to "Hard" (the Knee of the 241 being "soft")


Could not be more simple from the moment it is known to use a compressor.
For beginners this model is not bad because it helps to understand what each parameter.
I have not read the manual.


Comp is a very good in its price range. It works on all sources.
Of course this is not a Distressor or another comp to 1500 euros per channel. But it's the taf. I personally prefer the BSS DPR 402 for example.


I use it for 6 years. In the room where I work there have had a dizaine.Nous DPR402 time but we've replaced those here (241 and 251) because they are more reliable. As for the sound after it's about gout.J 'adheres well to me. I have one in my home studio that I use regularly, and sometimes takes him live if the room or I will not be well equipped.
I tried as compressors. In this price range is what is done best with the DBX 160. (But forget everything ... 1046/166/266)
Used can be found at attractive prices. If you do not need the gate looking for is more a more complete 251-level settings.
