DW Drum Enhancer is not just one effect. It contains several fine-tuned EQs and compressors inside. By selecting the drum type, the plug-in automatically chooses appropriate gate and compressor model and sets the 3-band EQ's to ideal frequencies.

Presets

The fastest way to get the perfect drum sound is to use one of 60+ DWDE presets. These were carefully crafted in DW studios by professionals that specialize in drum recording on daily basis, and span across variety of genres, types and uses.

Dynamics

The intelligent and tweakable Gate helps remove the unwanted signal from the recorded material and shape the drum sound further. The compressor type, knee, attack and release times depend on the drum type selection. The ability to use parallel compression opens up almost endless sonic possibilities.

Equalization

Don't search for the EQ sweet spots. The DWDE EQs were precisely designed by the DW engineers. The knob's frequencies, Q's and high/low pass behavior depends on the drum type you choose with the selector. From there, you only adjust the amount of gain on each frequency band.
