The Drawmer DS201 is a sophisticated dual channel noise gate incorporating a number of features pioneered by Drawmer, which are invaluable to the sound engineer, and not found on conventional noise gates.
  • variable high pass and low pass filters for "frequency conscious" gating
  • comprehensive envelope control, attack, hold, decay, and range
  • key input for external triggering
  • "key listen" facility
  • extremely fast attack time, to preserve the natural attack of the sound
  • balanced inputs and outputs
  • stereo linkable
  • can be used for "Gating" or "Ducking"
  • high audio specification

These features and its "user friendliness" have made it the "industry standard" throughout the world, by which all other gates are judged.

See the full specs and press reviews on Drawmer's own datasheet

Note: Older units had unbalanced " jack in/out connections. New units are only available with balanced XLR in/out connectors.
