Drawmer Six-Pack – No Longer Available

Six-channel multi-dynamics processor for surround mixing
MFR# Six-Pack

Product Description

The Drawmer Six-Pack represents the industry’s first dedicated multi-dynamics processor for surround mixing and continues Drawmer’s tradition of audio ‘workhorse’ products which will continue to perform time and time again - even in a rapidly changing audio delivery environment.

The Drawmer Six-Pack is a single 3u unit that will provide dynamics control in any format from mono to 5.1 surround.  With six independent expander/gates, six independent auto or manual compressors, six ‘zero overshoot’ limiters and an LFE channel plus the ability to link channels individually, the Drawmer Six-Pack makes surround dynamics easy.  In the studio, any analogue audio source from mono to stereo to full surround can be handled in one unit. In live sound, outboard applications such as drum processing or vocals can be dealt with in one easy to use unit, with both auto and manual operation.  Alternatively the unit can be re-configured at the push of a button to provide dynamic control and speaker protection without image-shift for the fast developing surround sound speaker rigs employed in the club dance scene.

The design of each processing module is derived from the industry standard Drawmer DL241 Compressor to deliver transparent and predictable dynamic control. The six channels of processing are arranged vertically to occupy the minimum rack space.  On channel six the user has the option to switch in a 120Hz filter to create an LFE channel.  This feature is also useful to derive an LFE from a previously recorded five channel only, full band surround mix. Instinctively laid out LED bargraph metering gives clear visual indication of all dynamic functions.  Universal Linking facilities allow for the various configurations commonly used in multi-channel surround processing as well as the conventional stereo and single channel operation.

Controls and Features:

Peak Limiter - Programme Adaptive, variable Threshold, Zero Overshoot limiter variable from 0dB to +16dB. An LED display of limiter activity.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
