Pendulum Audio OCL-2
« on: March 13, 2005, 10:36:16 pm »

Hi,

Do you guys use the OCL2? Some time ago Brad and DC commented that this is a nice box.

Would it be a nice start for the junior mastering guys  who  intend to leave the plug-in world?

In which source material do you end up using it instead of  your other boxes?

Would it be fine for tracking too?

thanks again

I was going to get one.  I walked up to Greg G (owner of Pendulum) at the Tape Op convention.  I told him I wanted to get one of his compressors because I needed something "blue" in my rack.  He didn't blink.  He didn't laugh, he just started talking about the compressor.

I've since picked up a Tube Tech because they make Blue rack gear.

What do you mean?  You don't think I know how to run this shit do you?  I just put every knob on 5 and make coffee.  The clients don't know the difference.  I got this great plug in from Funk Logic that has that Bob Ludwig setting.  I use that and the L1 limiter thingy all the time.  The other trick is to put a little bit of flange or reverb on EVERYTHING that comes it.  I don't know, it just sounds so ... polished?

No, it all sounds the same to me.  So, I figure if I have a Requisite (dark red) and those Oakland Raider Silver and Black Manley things, and then the Neon CraneSong things and a bunch of other stuff... well, I was totally without ANYTHING blue.  I don't know how I survived.

Like I said, I had to get a Tube Tech (because they are blue) because the color imbalance was un-bearable.

Cheers,
Garrett

Now you have me thinking, I might need some Focusrite Red stuff, even though I've never dug the way it sounds...

Busted.

(I really put everything on 7, then I make coffee)....

I got the Tube Tech based on weird rec from a tracking friend and I've been reasonably pleased with it.  In fact, I pulled my Vari Mu  out and replaced it with the Tube Tech.  

For those of you who say the VM is the second coming of Elvis, you haven't heard mine.  Mine is evil and demented.  Yours is probably nice.  I got the one bad one so leave me be.

They used to go farther, but the US dollar is barely worth anything.  I tried to buy some gear from the UK and the knobs only went to 4.85!
