LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – SEPTEMBER 2015: TransAudio Group, longtime U.S. distributor of Drawmer professional audio products, is poised to begin shipping Drawmer’s new 1978 Stereo Tone Shaping FET Compressor. The 1978 gives unparalleled flexibility to recording and mix engineers who wish to bless their tracks with an analog soul. Four character settings that interact with the compressor settings (threshold, ratio, attack, release) can be engaged alone or in combinations to produce a huge number of possible compression flavors, and an independent saturation knob dials in variable amounts of luscious harmonic distortion. Unique side-chain filtering options, which can operate on an external signal or on the input signal itself and which allow variable amounts of low- or high- end filtering, multiply the palette of options even further. Comprehensive, meaningful metering, wet/dry control, and output gain round out the Drawmer 1978’s unparalleled feature set.

“With the 1978, Drawmer has given engineers a tool that can impart a huge range of genuine analog signatures on their tracks,” said Brad Lunde, founder and president of TransAudio Group. “Of course, Drawmer is well known for designing musical compressors, and the 1978 excels in that regard. But the addition of the character settings and the saturation knob put the 1978 in a class of its own. With the affordable, single-rack space Drawmer 1978 Stereo Tone Shaping FET Compressor, engineers get the versatility and sonic possibilities that otherwise would require multiple racks of high-end, analog gear.”
