More control, more versatility, more definition—the Drawmer 1973 Multi-Band Compressor plug-in lets
you micro-manage the dynamics of your sound with ultimate precision. Make your mixes wider and
louder, shoehorn a piano into a dense mix, or curb the temper of an unruly bass guitar. And do it all with
the unmistakable analog feel of a modern Drawmer classic.

Carefully modelled on the original Drawmer 1973 hardware in collaboration with the Drawmer research and development team, and
approved by Ivor Drawmer himself, the Drawmer 1973 brings the award-winning three-band compressor bang up to date.

Mastering with the Drawmer 1973 gives you independent control over three frequency bands, often a miracle-cure for problem mixes. Pull
out individual instruments, brighten the mix, or tighten the lows … or of course do it all! But the Drawmer 1973 is equally useful on single
sound sources in a mix. Take away the boomy character of an acoustic guitar in a perfectly natural sounding manner. Control the low
frequency dynamics of a bass but leave its top end alive and kicking. Or remove sharp consonant sounds from a vocal track without
eliminating detail and clarity.

Staying faithful to the look and sound of the original Drawmer 1973, we’ve added some extra
up-to-date features to the plug-in, including Mid/Side processing and sidechain, giving even more versatile compression and dynamic
control. So the Drawmer 1973 plug-in lets you play with the mid portion of a sound without affecting the rest of that frequency, or link the gain
reduction to an external sound source.

The Drawmer 1973 has a great looking GUI echoing the look of the hardware original, is CPU friendly, and comes with useful presets to kickstart
the creativity, but with enough control to add your own unique touches to any mix.

Ultra-versatile, sleek-looking, and with the sound quality of an analog classic. Designed by experts for experts: an indispensable tool for the
modern studio.
