Pye Compressor...Reborn!!!!

Hey,

Thought you guys might be interested to check out the new Pom "Pye" Compressor. This unit is the result of a collaboration between Pierre Oliver-Margerand at Pom Audio and George Apsion at Kore Recording Studios.

It is a recreation of the famed Pye hardware Compressor from the 60's, featuring some new enhancements for modern music production. These include:

- Adjustable Output control
- Side-chain filtering
- New controls for attack
- Stereo link facility

Kore is the first studio to own one of these compressors and we honestly cant say enough good things. The uniqueness of the Pulse Width Modulation circuit makes it unlike any other compressor we own. It is particularly stunning on the mix buss, with a gorgeous stereo image and also untouchable on drum rooms. Really a great all round compressor with an incredible lineage.

You can check out some audio of the unit in action here:

Yeah it's amazing. I heard it side by side a vintage unit at his workshop and it was incredible. Looks beautiful too!

Full pricing is available on his site http://www.pompye.com

Thanks for the kind words Paul. We spent a lot of time on the styling of the unit, along with its layout and functionality. Really pleased with how it's come out.

I have a lot of pride in looking after my clients and whoever still believes in analogue equipment. That is the way I like to work and have always done for the past 25 years with everyone...
There is nothing like a direct sell between the designer and whoever buys the equipment,
and most of all, it favourises the sense of trust, responsibility and duty I should have towards my clients... I personally really enjoy the concept of developing mutual respect with my clients, because we are all great at what we do when we use the right tools.

I know this is a bit of a dinosaur theorie in this modern ages of plugin and mass production economy, but I shall stick with that philosophy for now if that's OK.
If anybody wants to place an order, just get in contact with me at pom@pomaudiodesign.com and I will personally look after you.

Many thanks.

500 Series PYE

If you open a mono PYE compressor, you will find 3 big transformers, that's a total of 6 in my stereo version. I would probably need 4 or 5 unit space to do a stereo version... Plus, to my knowledge, there is no -24volts in the 500 format and I woundn't use any switch mode methods in a PYE for obvious reasons...
So, unless I get rid of all the good stuff that allows to make all the difference in audio, use cheap horrible nasty surface mount components like everybody else does, sell a "badge" to people that has actually nothing to do with the original, like the new Helios stuff for exemple, I cannot see it happen...
I would have to advertise that this is the cheap nasty version with no amazing stereo image, no transformers, and that it has nothing to do with the original...
How much are you prepared to pay for that version ?
£10 quid, £250, £500 or £1000 ?
Hum... I'll have to think about that one... I prefer to sell one proper unit per month, rather than 10 a week that are ****e in a 500 format, selling a big lie to my customers.
Have a nice day.

Didn't mean to offend by asking! I just usually ask because I like the compact factor a lot better.

I didn't know most units weren't remaining faithful to the tone of their rack brethren.

On this one, I did like on my FAIRCHILD 670 mkII, I used exactly the same ingredients, and even managed to get a stock of original input transformers with the lovely shinny lamination full of nickel, the result is outstanding, and the stereo image is unbelievable, nothing you could ever get with a computer emulation and good digital clocking...
I will work on a lot of new 500 format exciting units after Christmas, and will look into cooking a hybrid version at some point, but will only do if people show some real interest in it and show me the money too. I am happy to design anything, as long as there is an order at the end. Just let me know.

Happy Christmas!

Pom

George APSION from KORE triggered all this, we sat down and shared all our ideas about what a nice new PYE compressor unit should look like these days... All the front panel colours were George's idea, and we did the layout together, I feel we got something very special in the end... I like to do that, especially with people that are serious about getting something for real, not just talking and dreaming, that creative process is awesome...
Thanks for your kind words.

Any time. Getting the word out for amazing guys like you, Roger, and Jonte has always been a pleasure. Great response time, feedback, conversations, willingness to assist with new ideas and most of all honesty. I know myself I sometimes ask for things that are over the top and not needed. It is nice hear hear back from real pros like you all whom are not doing this just for the profit telling me what I asking for is dumb lol; in a much kinder way of course. It takes a truly honest person to turn down profit to make sure our experience is truly a satisfying one.
