For the mastering engineer, a multi-band compressor is a powerful tool. But as Spiderman's uncle Ben famously says: with great power comes great responsibility. 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 (IMP).

Multi-Band Compression For Your Mix
Drawmer S73 features an enhanced multi-band compressor sound design, fine-tuned to improve your mix with a minimum of tweaking. The S73 does most of the job for you by making the choices a mastering engineer would make. Simply use the Style parameter to switch between ready made mastering processing techniques to quickly find the sound that suits your mix the best.

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.

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. Softube has carefully modeled all the characteristics of the original analog hardware, and have taken the concept a step further by adding mastering sound design to create the Drawmer S73 IMP. The unit offers the perfect way to balance and shape your mix, and get great analog sound in no time.

This is a beautiful and thoughtful capture of the essence of the Drawmer sound. Punch, clarity and character for days. A new go-to for drums. Fantastic.

The Drawmer S73 can do great things with the dynamics of your tracks. Is a great tool to glue a mix together or for adding some air or punch to single instruments

I was quite amazed. When we first got the S73 to beta, the preset I tried was Clarity—just played a mix through it, and straight away I knew that inside it was a 1973.

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.

In a world of a million options, I love the straightforward thinking of S73—just one big knob and a few settings. I've been using it on everything from vocals to hand claps, a big must-have!
