As the Drawmer 1960 Vacuum Tube Compressor/Pre Amp operating as a soft knee type, it requires very little in terms of its controls. The Threshold range is continuously variable between infinity and -24DB, the theory being that the signals below the threshold are essentially unprocessed and the signals exceeding this threshold are subjected to increasing amounts of gain reduction dependent on by how much they exceed the threshold.

Harking back to earlier precedents the attack and release times of the Drawmer 1960 are switchable rather than being continuously variable. The attack offers a choice of slow, medium and fast whilst release is comprised of six settings. Positions of one to four have fixed release times whilst positions five and six are two different programme release modes making the unit ideally suited to programmed material with complex dynamics such as complete stereo mixes and vocals.The VU meters on the 1960 Vacuum Tube Compressor/Pre Amp may be switched to monitor either the amount of gain reduction taking place or the output signal level and the two channels may be used either independently or as a stereo pair, depending on the setting of the stereo link switch.
