The Drawmer MX-30 Pro Dual Gated Compressor Limiter is Primarily aimed at the musician and live performer and uses circuit elements drawn from existing top-of-the-line Drawmer products by simplifying the control systems where possible,proving ideal for musicians who engage in active performances.As a result of the simplified control system the inexperienced user gains the combined benefits of Drawmer quality and performance as well as a lower cost and practicality.

A spectacular feature used by Drawmer's MX30-Pro Dual Gated limiter is the soft knee auto compressor mode. This feature automatically adjusts attack and release parameters to refine the dynamics of your material, without leaving it feeling drab and lifeless. This is something that becomes very much useful when processing vocals, which are notoriously difficult to record or project. Live events may often turn into something of a nightmare for sound engineers, especially when one considers the inconsistency and unreliable tendencies of human nature when performing. For this the Drawmer MX30-Pro has a solution in the form of a powerful peak limiter that blocks sudden spikes in signals that may damage live PA rigs. The MX30-Pro however, is not essentially restricted to live performances, and may be the perfect addition to any studio or outboard rack.


  • ‘Programme Adaptive’ Gate: Used to remove unwanted noise below a pre-set level, each channel consists of a variable Threshold Gate incorporating Drawmer’s ‘Programme 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 ‘chatter’ when the signal is fluctuating on or around Threshold. Two LEDs show when the signal is ‘above’ or ‘below’ Threshold and a push button switch allows additional control of Release time.

  • Gain Reduction Bargraph Meter: A nine segment LED bargraph meter continuously monitors the gain reduction applied by the compressor over a range of 0dB to 30dB.
  • Soft Knee ‘Auto Compressor’ The gate is followed by a variable Threshold, variable Ratio, soft knee compressor with fully automatic Attack and Release. Large transients are controlled instantly whilst small signal variations are treated gently, retaining as much ‘life’ as possible and without generating unpredictable side effects. the MX30 Pro handles all compression levels with ease and displays the amount of compression on a high resolution Gain Reduction bargraph meter.

  • Stereo Link: The unit can function as two independent gated/compressor/limiters or when ‘link’ mode is engaged for stereo use Channel 1 becomes the master, automatically duplicating its parameters across to Channel 2. In this mode the same degree of gain reduction is applied to both audio channels to prevent image shifting.

  • Peak Limit: This control sets an absolute limit that the output signal will not be permitted to exceed. The limiter is ‘zero response time’ and controls peaks without any audible distortion. For transparent ‘peak protection’ the output gain control should be set to ensure that the Peak Limiter operates only occasionally. Alternatively, the unit can be driven into heavy limiting for creative effects.
