Daly City, CA (October 6, 2005)–Digidesign is introducing the Drawmer TourBuss plug-in suite at the AES NYC Convention, which starts tomorrow. Designed with the live sound engineer in mind, Drawmer TourBuss offers four dynamics plug-ins, exclusive to Digidesign Venue systems, that retain the layout and emulate the sound of Drawmer’s renowned DS201 Noise Gate and DL241 Auto-Compressor hardware units.
Drawmer TourBuss includes:
Noise Gate – Modeled after the Drawmer DS20, the TourBuss Noise Gate performs and sounds like the original hardware unit.
Compressor/Limiter – Combining aspects of both ratio-style and soft-knee compressors, the TourBuss Compressor/Limiter is equally adept at creative work and unobtrusive level control.
Expander – The TourBuss Expander features advanced capabilities–such as soft ratio settings–that are designed to overcome problems encountered by typical expanders when trying to distinguish between low-level sounds and background noise.
Bracketing Filter – With low and high 12 dB-per-octave filters, the TourBuss Bracketing Filter provides an easy way to remove unwanted frequencies that bleed into the source, without having to use a more complicated, resource-hungry equalizer.
Easy Integration – The Drawmer TourBuss suite integrates easily into the VENUE environment, providing control of all of the plug-ins directly from the D-Show console’s surface. The Compressor/Limiter and Gate, for example, can be controlled from the central D-Show Assignable Channel Section. Because the TourBuss plug-ins share the same standard controls as the built-in D-Show dynamics (including threshold, attack, etc.), moving back and forth between the built-in effects and the Tourbuss plug-ins is straightforward.
The Drawmer TourBuss suite is available only through the DigiStore at:
