Pendulum Audio OCL 500 Compressor

I got to play with this at AES. It showed some promise and I can't wait to try it out for real.

Nice! I'd like to see a PL-2 in a 500 slot as a PL-1!

That is a great idea. I hope Pendulum keeps going with the 500 series.

I really like the way Greg shoe-horned the OCL in here.

I'm really digging devices that have fixed but well chosen time constants, saves tweaking, I'm really coming around to the 500 series.

This year I'm doing a SweetTen for compressors, small, powerful and simple.

crazy!!! i wonder how this will differ from my quartet compressor since it's non-tube. it's got more time settings, but no real manual control which is probably fine, and i like the hi pass option. kinda wish they didn't use the 660 meter, but i'm interested nonetheless! the big question.... PRICE?!?!

Thumbs up OCL was impressive

I got to mess around with the OCL at AES after playing with the SSL E series comps at the SSL booth...

I have to say I was equally impressed with both comps.

In my short time playing with the OCL I found it very very very musical ....really cool for sure. I'm looking forward to getting a pair down to the studio for a real shoot out...but for now I'm impressed.

Great Job!

I messed with lots of Comps at AES and this one was def one of my favorites.

Great Rivers prototype was pretty sweet as well.

Anyone know the street price on this 500 series comp???

Is this transformerless (or one on input or output or both)?

from the PDF: "The new OCL-500 has the same compression circuit as
the OCl-2, but uses a transformerless class A solid-state
gain makeup circuit in place of the tube stage."

Has anyone taken this through its paces yet?

How does it compare to the rack version? What are the differences?

Is there a significant difference in the sound because of the change in make-up design.

They should be ready to go [ship] later this Spring. They really don't have a firm date at the moment.

No problem! I'm pretty eager to get it working in our room. We've got the PL2 in there now and I cannot tell you how amazing that beast is hanging over our console's insert point.
