For the mastering engineer, a multi-band compressor is a powerful tool. But as Spiderman’s uncle Ben famously says: with great power comes great responsibility. A multi-band compressor that is not used diligently may create more problems than it solves. This is why Softube¬†created Drawmer S73 Intelligent Master Processor (IMP).


Multiband Compression For Your Mix

Drawmer S73 features an enhanced multi-band compressor sound design, fine-tuned to improve your mix with a minimum of tweaking. The S73 does most of the job for you by making the choices a mastering engineer would make.
