Drawmer MXPRO-60 Front End One Channel Strip

Single recording channel with mic pre, EQ, compressor/limiter, de-esser and more
MFR# MXPRO60

Product Description

The Drawmer MX Pro 60 Front End One is a unique mic/line/instrument input channel in a single rack space providing high quality Drawmer processing prior to tape/hard disc recording.  The MX60 is also ideally suited to project studio and live sound applications.  Functioning as a studio grade mic pre-amp, Program Adaptive gate, de-esser, compressor, limiter, three band EQ and multi band tube saturation stage, the MX60 offers the user more options than competitive units currently available.

Grass Roots - The MX60 draws its technology from the most successful of Drawmer products.  The mic pre-amp features the same discrete component design found in the legendary Drawmer 1960, the de-esser is derived from the MX50, the VCA based compressor is similar to the MX30, while the peak limiter and gate can be tracked back to the DL241 compressor/limiter.

Controls:

  • Input Stage: The input stage may be switched to accept mic, line, or instrument level signals - the XLR mic input has switchable 48V phantom power and phase reverse, while the line input is on both a balanced +4dB TRS jack and an unbalanced -10dB jack.  A high impedance Instrument jack is located on the front panel for use with electric guitars, basses, synths and drum machines.
  • Program Adaptive Gate: Drawmer's proprietary Program Adaptive circuitry means that all the time constants are automatically optimized for the material being processed. This enables stable gating and eliminates 'chatter' around threshold.  Controls via a single variable threshold and switchable fast/slow auto release.
  • De-Esser: Floating threshold de-ess operation where the de-esser automatically and continually readjusts its own threshold level.  The MX60 de-esser is almost completely automatic requiring the user only to select a switchable male or female setting and to adjust the amount of de-essing required. Only the sibilant sounds are subjected to gain reduction so that the lisping effect of simpler de-essers is avoided.
  • EQ: High and low shelving sections as well as fully parametric mid range EQ with variable frequency, 'Q', and ±18dB cut/boost.
  • Compressor:  High quality VCA compressor based on that of the MX30 and DL24.  Both the attack and release times are Program Adaptive leaving the user with only ratio, threshold and make-up gain to adjust.
  • Tube sound: Multi band 'tube saturation' allows users to create subtle warming, high frequency effects or out-and-out obvious effects via three separate, independently adjustable audio bands.  Low settings on all bands enable replication of classic tube mic sounds.
  • Output: The output stage includes a limiter with a preset threshold (+16dB) and a variable master fader with output bargraph metering which sets the overall output level from OFF to +15dB.  A two stage soft/hard limiting approach has been adopted with yellow and red LEDs signifying soft (approaching limit point) and hard limiting (hitting limit point).

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
