Retains low frequencies without pumping, enhances high frequencies, and does parallel compression
The Drawmer S2 is a dual channel tube compressor that features a host of creative processing possibilities.
BIG- Retains bass frequencies and minimizes undesirable 'pumping' by rolling off the detection signal at 75, 125 or 250Hz (user switchable). A fully variable level control allows for the desired amount of Big processing and an in/out switch provides the option to remove from the signal path for A/B comparison.
BRIGHT- A dynamic high-frequency enhancer to keep compressed audio sounding fresh and bright with continuously variable frequency control (500Hz to 20kHz) and amount of dynamic enhancement.
DRY- Mixes user defined amount of 'uncompressed' signal with the compressed signal to create 'parallel compression effect' without the need for external mixing devices.

Do away with pumping, boost bass energy without punching holes in your mix, and more. Put this on your 2-bus if you want to make a record.
