"I was quite amazed. When we first got the S73 to beta, the preset I tried was Clarity—just played a mix through it, and straight away I knew that inside it was a 1973."
Kieron Clough. Product Manager, Drawmer.

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. Simply use the Style parameter to switch between ready made mastering processing techniques to quickly find the sound that suits your mix the best.
