Drawmer DL-251 Dual Spectral Compressor


Drawmer's DL-251 Dual Spectral Compressor is a testament to Drawmers drive to create versatile and adaptable equipment. A renowned characteristic of many other compressors is that they tend to remove high frequencies from material with a wide bandwidth. This however, is not the case with Drawmer's DL-251 Dual Spectral Compressor which incorporates 'Dynamic Spectral Enhancement' which eliminates the eternal struggle of maintaining high frequencies by restoring the high frequency energy lost during the full band compression process.
