Drawmer MX50-Pro Dual Vocal De-Esser

The Drawmer MX50-Pro is capable of taming even the unruliest signals. In this case specifically, the human voice.When recording or performing the human voice can often experience large sibilant peaks which often result in a severe distortion. The MX50-Pro addresses this problem by reducing the sibilant sounds whilst leaving the remainder of the signal unchained, making for unparalleled vocal definition and tone. The Drawmer MX60-Pro Front End One provides the user with a powerhouse of possibility, fitted with simplified circuit elements taken from existing high end Drawmer products to create a comprehensively simple and effective piece of kit.

The MX50-Pro Dual Vocal De-Esser excels in defining and isolating the human voice and has been specifically designed with capabilities to deal with the unpredictable parameters it brings with it.An often untamable and unpredictable signal, the human voice has provided many a sound engineer with incalculable difficulties in both live and recording situations. With something that has a nortoriously volatile nature comes a precise and engineered solution at the hand of the Drawmer MX50-Pro. The MX50 has been desinged to overcome sibilant sounds like S's and T's that are often over-emphasised by the human voice.

The MX50 also posseses other qualities that enable it overcome unwanted signals from a variety of other instruments. Features such as 'smoothing' reduce string noise on acoustic guitars and reduce the sound of breathing on flutes. Such processing is achievd by adjusting two control parameters, Frequency and De-Ess. This fully variable frequency control ranges from 800HZ to 8KHZ, a range that completely encopasses the full sibilant spectrum. This is then followed by a variable De-Ess which acts as a more refined control that allows up to 20 DB of gain reduction at the users selected frequency.


  • Floating Threshold System: This intelligent Drawmer circuitry has a floating Threshold that adapts to the dynamics and level of the incoming material, eliminating the need for a manual Threshold control and creating more natural results.
  • Air function:As sibilance rarely occurs above 10KHz this feature adds back high frequency 'gloss' in excess of 12KHz preserving upper harmonics and increasing the transparency of operation.
  • ,b>Frequency: This control selects the frequency band in which the de-esser operates. In Split Band mode this control also determines the split point above which gain reduction will take place. The control is continuously variable from 800Hz to 8KHz and covers the full sibilant range.
  • De-Ess:Adjusts the amount of gain reduction that will take place when a sibilant sound has been detected. Up to a maximum of 20dB may be applied. This control uses an intelligent Floating Threshold circuitry which removes the need for a manual De-Ess Threshold control. One of the benefits of this design approach is that during quiet passages the sibilants are held to a level which is relative to the original signal.
  • Split Band De-Ess: Split Band operation will only reduce the selected frequencies above the value set via the Frequency control. In most situations this mode, in conjunction with the Air function, offers the most transparent de-essing. Status LED illuminates when engaged.
  • Full Band De-Ess:Full Band operation will reduce the total signal level in response to signals in the selected frequency band. Status LED illuminates when engaged.
  • Air:The Air control enables frequencies above the sibilant band to be retained, greatly increasing transparency of the de-essing process. During normal use it is recommended to keep the Air function active for both Split Band and Full Band de-essing. Status LED illuminates when engaged.
  • Link:Depressing this switch configures the unit for stereo operation where the average left/right signal level is used as the Floating Threshold. In linked mode the red status LED beneath the link switch will illuminate.
  • De-Ess Gain Reduction Display: A nine segment LED bargraph shows how much gain reduction is being applied up to a maximum of 20dB. In Full Band mode gain reduction is applied to the whole signal, whilst in Split Band mode only frequencies above the value set on the frequency control are subject to gain reduction.
  • Bypass:The Bypass position routes the input signal to the output with no processing. These switches are independant of any linking and will only bypass their respective channel. Status LED illuminates when engaged.
