Postproduction from the 1970s

The 1974 claims to be ideal for tonal shaping while ‘staying true to the sound of the 1970s’

Drawmer has added two new products to its 1970s’ FET series. Offering one set of controls for both audio channels, the 1974 stereo parametric equaliser has four bands of EQ with variable low- and high-cut filters to tune out any unwanted signals and fully variable bandwidth for the parametric mid-bands. Switchable slope and low peak allow users to adjust the focus and magnify the bottom end, while indented and accurate potentiometers are said to offer improved precision with faster recall. The 1974 claims to be ideal for tonal shaping while ‘staying true to the sound of the 1970s’.

The frequency controls offer a cut and boost of ±12dB. However, unlike EQs with no bandwidth adjustment or a simple switch, the two mid-bands have variable filter bandwidth controls enabling the user to focus in on very narrow sections of the audio spectrum, apply a broad, natural-sounding filter or modify fine-tuning mixes to problematic recordings. The EQ features a true hardware bypass for more accurate A/B comparisons, an internal low hum toroidal linear power aupply with voltage selector switch and a rugged steel chassis.

Meanwhile, the new 1976 stereo three-band saturation and width processor is a nod to the DC2476 digital master processor. Suitable for recording and live sound, it offers analogue saturation over three bands. The stereo width of the lows, mids and highs can be adjusted to add ‘real presence and depth’ to a mix, according to the manufacturer. A single, yet comprehensive, set of controls provide stereo operation.
