AML 54F50 compressor!
i am still drooling: )~
plan on a article with AML on these, any questions you guys would like to see ask?
i'll see what i can work in.
I missed this one Pan, how did it sound?
Very nice! Creamy smooth, I bought both of these. They sound so nice it is easy to over do it. LOL
I've never heard of them, whats the history on them?
They are clones of the old Neve 2254 Compressor.
Colin ( the owner of AML ) was servicing the original 2254's at Mark Knopfler's British Grove studio and desided to make a few. Worth mentioning British Grove studio bought some as well, I sold my vintage gretch drum kit ( I hated to but ) and bought these. Very glad I did. Vocals are so sweet through these.

Nice :) A painful good trade.
Could I ask you what they cost?
For vocals, are you tracking with them or hybrid mixing? If both, which way has the best results, track or mixing OTB ?
If I am tracking vocals I hit them before the box, but if someone sends me a vocal track i'll go out and back in.
They are not the only comps I have, I have several.
These can be linked and used for stereo work as well. Sometimes they are nice to shoot a buss though with minimal compression just for some flavor.
P.S. not sure of the cost these days but look over at vintage king they have them.
wow, this is a smooth compressor.
