AML 500 Series 54F50 Compressor, Anyone?

AML 500 Series 54F50 Compressor, Anyone?

I saw an interview on here with the guy (Colin I think was his name) from AML, but I didn't see a mention of this 500 series compressor. I was wondering if anyone out there had any experience with this unit (see link below)? Looks interesting. Thanks in advance.

It's brand new, so I don't know if anyone's got one yet.

I can tell you that I have one of his 1073-500's in the rack right now, and it's by far the closest thing to our real 1070L's that I've found, which was very surprising to me. Colin's an extremely smart guy. I can't wait to hear his comp.

They are shipping but there is a small lead time at the moment of about 3 weeks (while we wait for more metalwork to arrive).

All the clients who have these are not the type of poeple who hang round on Gearslutz (in fact I mentioned Gearslutz to one of them yesterday and he nearly tore my head off).

Don't know quite how to take that last line. Either that guy's a real snob, or we (gearslutz community at large) have been insulted.

Colin has 100 more posts than you himself. I think you can assume he meant it in jest.

How is the Stereo mode implemented on the dual racked unit?

Master/Slave type setup?

I could see the Mastering world getting on board with this piece.

You need three. Two for bus, one for your lead vocal. Sublime.

Mark Knopfler took his vintage ones out of the rack at British Grove and replaced them with a pair of these. True story.

They are stunning.

AML vs BAE

+1 on comparison between AML and BAE.

I used a vintage 2254 on a vocal and fell in love so I tried a BAE 10DC with the hopes that it would get me there. Nope. I'm not saying that it doesn't sound amazing but they made it more 'Hi-fi'. It doesn't do the magical rounding off of harsh high end that the vintage Neve does. I'm wondering if anyone has had a chance to compare the AML.
Thanks.

Yesterday TNT brought me this:










Very, very nice stuff. Tested it on some singer/ songwriter stuff I am working on and loved the results. The compressor is something else, but the 1073 is no slouch either. Instant Neve touch.

Btw, Colin is some great dude to deal with. Needed a different power plug then the standard UK one and he got it from somewhere and applied it for me...

Already using the AML 1073 which is awesome, seriously considering this compressor as well. Looks yummy. Either this one, the Falcon or an API compressor, it's hard out here for a pimp
