The 1969 Mercenary Edition, derived from a collaboration between two of the audio industry's most established names, Drawmer (UK) and Mercenary Audio (USA), Fletcher - Producer/Engineer, Mercenary Audio incorporates new tube circuits designed to add warmth to mic/line signals, and the instrument (DI) pre-amp has its own tube stage enabling classic overdrive effects when inserting guitar, bass and other instruments.

Retaining the concept of twin mic pre-amps, the 1969 uses 'Burr-Brown'op amps for a silkier sound - and a phase reverse switch available in instrument, mic and line modes increases versatility. The 1969 employs true stereo link operation with channel one's threshold, attack and release controls becoming master to both channels. Stereo link also offers a BIG position which retains bass frequencies by rolling off the detection signal at 100 Hz minimizing undesirable pumping during compression. Output gain make-up can be independently controlled on each channel.
