The DS-101 500 Series Noise Gate is based on a single-channel of the DS-201 and utilizes a number of features pioneered by Drawmer, which are invaluable to the sound engineer.One of these features is the high and low pass filters for “frequency conscious gating". Features such as these are incredibly handy for isolating particular signals that may otherwise be tricky to subdue.

Other features on the DS-101 500 Noise Gate include comprehensive envelope control, attack, hold, decay, and range, plus a whole host of other features, all adding up to one comprehensive processor.When placed side by side in a 500 series rack two or more gates can be linked using the new infra red triggering mechanism employed on the DS-101 500 Series Noise Gate.

The set up of many noise gates can often be a daunting and tedious job with the task of isolating particular signals proving difficult.

Drawmer have come up with a solution to this problem with two variable filters and one high-pass and one low-pass, which act upon the side-chain keying circuitry. By setting the output switch to key listen the user can hear the action of the filters and adjust them to reject high frequency spillage from the hi-hats and other intrusive signals. This now enables the gate to only open specifically for the lower frequencies present in the snare drum. The first of its kind to include these features, the DS201 is a pioneering piece of equipment that puts the owner at the forefront of the soundscape.


  • Fully variable high pass and low pass filters for “frequency conscious” gating.
  • Comprehensive envelope control, attack, hold, decay, and range.
  • “Key Listen” facility.
  • Extremely fast attack time, to preserve the natural attack of the sound.
  • Linkable - up to ten units in one rack space - with individual envelope shaping.
  • Can be used for “Gating” or “Ducking”.
  • Low noise design.
