    I am looking for options aside from the Drawmer Expander/Noise reductionDF320 cause I cant stnad the idea of paying all that monye for a feature i dont need(the nosie reduction thing). Either way I am wondering does anyone make a good expander out there that wont color the sound I got a very high quality signal path(Neve/Pendulum/Empirical Labs/Apogee) and dont wanna ^#$% it up but I need something to get rid of the ocasional background noise and I basically have fallen in love with that plugin expander in Pro Tools Drawmer does I need something in the anlog domain. Any suggestions and please dont suggets behringer/alesis.

    Why don't ya get a Drawmer DS201 or something? It's super clean, and probably the fastest gate I've ever heard to boot. Can't remember the price but it seems like it only set me back $400 or so.

    Good luck!

    to my knowledge that drawmer piece only does gating but I could be wrong. I have been liking the effect of expansion of late. If there isnt much of a diffrence in the drawmer piece do tell. The time I have used the 201 have only been on drums.
