Drawmer 1972 Out of the Box
Ryan Ferris lets us know what’s in the box and gives us a tour of the features.
The Drawmer 1972 is a very cool piece of gear ideal for the modern hybrid studio. Not only does it offer two highly musical preamps, but also a pair of punchy instrument DIs and stereo line level processing. Add in high and low pass filtering, dynamic Lift processing, and single button dual tilt EQ and the 1972 becomes a seriously versatile multi-functional tool. Sonically, it’s smooth and musical. Even with the top end boost tilt EQ, the added clarity is pleasant without a hint of harshness. Not only can you capture pristine mono, dual mono or stereo recordings while tracking, you can also process pre-recorded sources as well. Try throwing this on the mix bus right after your summing mixer, or elevate a drum mix by adding it in the parallel processing chain. The 1972 will be a flexible and indispensable tool in the studio. Drawmer has done it again!
