The Drawmer DL241 Dual Channel Auto-Compressor boasts a sophisticated design that offers a smooth, transparent and warm sonic performance.

Drawmer's unique Programmed Adaptive Expansion circuitry gives you effective single control operation, producing a fast smooth response and eliminating chatter on or around threshold. Unlike most other expanders, the Expansion Ratio, Hold Attack and Release continually adapt themselves to the dynamics of the incoming signal. The Expander/Gate provides 80dB range and variable threshold from +20dB to 70dB with an OFF position. Switching is provided for Fast or Slow release characteristics. The Fast mode can be used for instruments with rapid decay times or for additional tightening of the gating effect. The Slow mode is more suitable for vocals and instruments with longer decay times or can be used to smooth over rough fade-outs. A single LED indicates gating action.

The DL241's full Auto Attack/Release Compressor with variable Threshold and Ratio successfully combines the smoothness of the Soft Knee principle with the precision of a Ratio control. Selectable manual or fully automatic Attack and Release times significantly extend the application range and user scope of the DL241. Its auto mode removes the need for manual adjustment and is particularly valuable when the program being treated does not have predictable or consistent dynamics. Under manual control, the wide range of adjustment available lets you create dynamic effects as well as normal compression.

The DL241 provides an absolute limit to the peak level of the output signal, adjustable from 0dB to +16dB above system level. When set to the required level, any excessive peaks will be stopped and the gain momentarily decreased if necessary. Its Zero Response Time avoids unpleasant distortion when mastering for CD or sending any signal to digital equipment. The DL241 provides complete protection from even the fastest and shortest signal 'spikes' (overloads), making the unit also ideally suited for speaker system protection in sound reinforcement applications.

Comprehensive bar graph displays give easy to read indications of gain reduction, and output signal level gain reduction from 1dB to -30dB is shown simultaneously with signal level from -20dB to +15dB. Other single LEDs indicate function status of Gating Action, Auto Mode, Bypass, Peak Limiting, Stereo Linking, and Power On.

The operating level of the DL241 can be instantly switched, independently on each channel, for either +4dBu or 10dBu operation using a rear panel push switch.

The DL241 is available with either XLR connections and fully balanced inputs and outputs, or with stereo jack (TRS) connections, fully balanced inputs and single ended outputs. This is the XLR version.
