Drawmer S73 Intelligent Master Processor

USD 45 USD 89


For the mastering engineer, a multi-band compressor is a powerful tool. But a multi-band compressor that is not used diligently may create more problems than it solves. This is why we created Drawmer S73 Intelligent Master Processor.

Use it to shape your mix with clarity and definition that no regular compressor could ever provide.


"It's a very nice better-maker plugin. Great to slap on the master to get your writing session sounding interesting, but also great for individual busses that needs some life and also in the mastering stage."

Axel Hedfors a.k.a. Axwell
DJ, remixer, record producer and one third of what once was Swedish House Mafia

"I've done multiple mixes with the S73 now and still can't believe the ease of use for getting the punch, clarity and width."

Ron Harris
Producer (Christina Aguilera)

Clarity and defintion

Under the hood, the S73 is based on technology created by Drawmer for the 1973 Three Band FET Stereo Compressor. This is an award winning multi-band analog compressor design famous for its precision and flexibility. But as with all multi-band compressors it takes care and experience to find the sweetest of sweet spots.

With the S73 we've found them for you, and the sound design behind each Style represents an expert mastering engineer's skill and taste. You'll have no trouble getting the best out of Drawmer with this special little unit.

Close to the original

Softube has carefully modeled all the characteristics of the original analog hardware at component level, so what you hear in the S73 is truly the real thing in action.

"I think they've nailed it," says Kieron Clough, Products Manager at Drawmer. "Ivor [Drawmer] thinks they've nailed it as well. It's fantastic!"

The S73 is the way to get top-of-the-line analog hardware on your mastering bus without fear of choice paralysis or losing yourself in the details. It's called the Intelligent Master Processor because it makes the tough decisions for you, leaving you free to listen to the effect.

"Easy to use, Sounds smooth and subtle, generally. Air switch gives instant pro mastering finish to dull mixes."
