LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – NOVEMBER 2017: TransAudio Group, U.S. distributor of Drawmer and other manufacturers of ultra-high-end pro audio recording gear, introduces the Drawmer MC7.1 surround sound monitor controller. The MC7.1 joins Drawmer’s comprehensive line of monitor controllers, offering the same transparent circuitry and comprehensive mix-checking features that have made the Drawmer MC2.1 and MC3.1 so popular for stereo work. The MC7.1 adds well-thought out surround sound interconnectivity and functionality that make it a pleasure to mix for (and between!) 7.1, 5.1, stereo, mono, or any other multi-channel format. High-quality potentiometers provide perfect channel level matching at any volume (a feature often lacking in other manufacturer’s monitor controllers) and its rugged design is built right in Drawmer’s UK factory for superior performance and reliability.
“The intuitive and powerful feature set, pristine sound quality, and reasonable price point of the Drawmer MC7.1 make it a must-have tool for anyone who regularly works on surround sound projects,” said Brad Lunde, founder and president of TransAudio Group. “It’s exciting to watch Ivor Drawmer and his engineering team apply the deep insights in the art and science of analog design, that they learned from their legendary studio processors, to the world of monitor controllers. Sure, a monitor controller is a little less exciting than, say, a tube compressor, but professionals who need to use a surround sound monitor controller day in and day out will appreciate how fast and reliable their workflow will become with the Drawmer MC7.1.”
The all-analog Drawmer MC7.1 has two sets of balanced 7.1 inputs, a 7.1 through, a balanced stereo input, and a front panel aux input. It has a balanced 7.1 output and a balanced stereo output with its own subwoofer option. Intuitive controls allow users to direct any surround sound channels to the surround LR or stereo mains, where comprehensive mix checking features (e.g. solo low/mid/high bands, mono, polarity reverse, LR swap) make quick work of complicated projects.
