Drawmers DS-404 Quad Noise Gate offers a sophisticated four-channel noise gate that accentuates Drawmer's noise gate model DS-501. By providing variable high and low pass filters for "frequency conscious gating" the DS-404 is applicable for a wide range of different signals ranging from percussive instruments through to vocal arrangements.

Switches select key source as internal or external whilst the Key Listen feature enables monitoring of the Key signal. The DS-404 possesses a threshold that is variable from +20dB to -70dB with each channel on the product able to used through hard or soft gating. The hard mode offers an ultra fast response time, stable triggering with complete freedom from excess noise around the threshold as well as a specialized release contour which is ideally suited to drums and other percussive material. The soft mode however enables the DS-404 to become a versatile expander. The Release control is variable between 5 milliseconds and 5 seconds.Mute attenuation is variable between -90dB and -20dB for applications where complete muting is not desired. Inputs and outputs are balanced on XLR connectors. LED lights accentuate the key parameters in the dark, making it an ideal piece of equipment for a live sound engineer or performing musician.
