The VU meters may be switched to monitor either the amount of gain reduction taking place or the output signal level and the two channels may be used either independently or as a stereo pair, depending on the setting of the stereo link switch. Switch settings 1 through to 4 provide progressively increasing release times, while positions 5 and 6 cause the release times to vary in a manner which automatically adapts to the dynamics of the incoming signal.

Because the compressor is a soft drawer type, it requires few controls. The non potted vca schematic is posted at the gmail site Switchable Attack and Release settings scchematic provided along with a fully variable Threshold, two of the Release settings being programme dependent.

In addition, the incorporates two low-noise microphone preamplifiers with provision for phantom powering, plus a versatile instrument preamplifier with passive EQ and brightness switch. Isn’t it a optical comp?

Drawmer Tech Anyone?

The microphone input stages feature extremely low noise, balanced input circuitry with additional tube amplification, enabling modern microphones to take on the characteristics of older tube models. Did one ch first and compared them Gar Gilles [ gtr amp builder ] while he was still alivehelped me build a gtr preamp design of his that controled gain from the cathodeschdmatic may have been too wide a range for a micpre but gtr would quickly get into overdrive.

The tube gain stages are versatile enough to provide a clean, punchy sound or the gain may be increased to provide the type of overdrive sound associated with tube guitar amplifiers. The Aux input is a valuable addition as it combines the virtues of a D. Check your wiring if using sidechain jacks. Has anyone had any experience tech-ing one of these units? Two sets of insert points on the rear panel allow additional effects to be added either before or during compression.


That’s the only schematc I’ve heard about, and experienced. Phantom power is individually switchable on the two channels and a peak overload LED warns when clipping is imminent.

For your own safety it is important that you use this cable. Hi, Not sure about age and haven’t contacted Drawmer as I got the unit second hand for very cheap If necessary, change the Attack and Release settings to suit the material.

Some kind of control that’s intuitive, not complicated like a single knob” – Crusty “Back when everything sounde. The mic inputs provide up to 60dB of gain while maintaining a noise figure comparable with the better ‘in-desk’ mic preamps.

Its use is to attenuate low frequency signals that might otherwise prove troublesome, eg.

Now to contact Drawmer, thanks for your help. Make sure that the pots are solid. As an instrument amplifier, the provides gain, EQ and compression making it ideal for DI’ing guitars, basses and even keyboards. Replace with a correctly rated fuse for the selected operation voltage.

There is little doubt in the minds of many engineers and producers that vacuum tubes possess a unique sound quality providing a “warmer, more alive” sound. Started by robinball The Lab.

A major advantage of the hybrid approach is that it combines the reliability and stability of modern solid-state designs with the warm, detailed sound of vintage classic tube designs. The side chain access points may be used to patch in equalisers to enable the compressor to act as a de-esser. Determines the input level above which gain reduction will be applied and may be set in the range dB to infinity. Because guitar sounds are so subjective, and because they vary so much with instrument and playing style, there are no hard and fast rules to setting up, but a good starting point is to switch Bright ‘On’ and set the compressor for ‘Med’ attack and ‘6’ release.


This stage may be deliberately overdriven if required to add tonal coloration to an instrument, and with the addition of an external speaker simulator, overdriven guitar sounds may be Directly Injected “DI’d” into the mixing console.

What do you mean with OTA? April 24, Talk to Drawmer, in my experience schemattic have been very helpfull. From what Dchematic remember when trying to make qualified guesses to what the blackbox contained a very long time ago – I think it’s a vari-mu like differential long-tailed pair, but with a semiconductor variable current source common to the cathodes in stead of controlling the grids like in “real” vari-mu.

This powerful combination of the classic valve circuit, offering unsurpassed tonality, and the low noise balanced microphone input with up to 60dB of gain has allowed engineers throughout the world to exploit the full potential of high performance condenser microphones. And definitely recap if original caps! The same degree of gain reduction is applied to both audio channels to prevent drawmr shifting which would otherwise occur whenever the left and right signal dynamics varied from each other by any significant degree.

No chip VCA around how hearsay suggests it to be the case.
