The MX30 Pro Gated/Comp/Limiter is a low-cost professional quality dynamics processor. Drawing on our many years experience in professional audio we have developed a series of lower-cost Drawmer dynamic signal processors, the MX Pro range. Aimed at the musician, project studio and live performer, who is determined not to compromise on quality, but have to work to a tighter budget.
By using circuit elements drawn from existing top-of-the-line Drawmer products and by simplifying the control systems where possible, the MX Pro range is no less sophisticated than our other units, despite the price tag. As a result the inexperienced user gains the benefits of Drawmer quality and performance, combined with lower cost and simplicity of operation.
Used to remove unwanted noise below a pre-set level, each channel consists of a variable Threshold Gate incorporating Drawmer's ‚ÄòProgramme Adaptive' circuitry. Although quick and simple to operate, the gate's auto-circuitry continually optimises such parameters as Attack, Hold, Ratio and Release, completely eliminating ‚Äòchatter' when the signal is fluctuating on or around Threshold. Two LEDs show when the signal is ‚Äòabove' or ‚Äòbelow' Threshold and a push-button switch allows additional control of Release time. 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.
