The Hendyamps Pollock Mono Compressor is a solid state mono version of Hendyamps' Pollock Stereo Tube Compressor. The Pollock Mono is a versatile and aggressive compressor all about punchy and articulation, making it a powerful tracking and mixing tool.
The Hendyamps Pollock Mono Compressor is designed around high voltage Mosfets (350+ volts!), this version of the Pollock is aggressive, versatile, and is the ultimate mixing tool for any source. This version of the Pollock retains the same basic functionality of the Calibration control but makes it easier to drive the Pollock to taste in conjunction with the Output control (output volume). The Pollock has the unique ability to apply compression to the full sonic range of a track, or only apply it to the higher frequencies (your choice between 3k and up or 10k and up) in a way that acts as a smooth de-esser for troublesome sources. The Pollock Mono is also able too offer a sidechain at around 500hz, allowing you to remove unwanted lows from the triggering circuit. This can result in a very smooth compression application when desired. As well, Pollock offers an Air boost in order to provide a little extra boost to make up for moderate to heavy compression.
As you increase the Compression knob level you will also increase the compression amount. However, the amount of this compression that is applied is dependent on the Dry/Wet knob, but in an odd way. Instead of blending the wet and dry signals, this control allows the compression to react normally but sets the max amount of compression that is applied. As well, there is an option to engage Aggressive mode which acts as a super punchy and bold compressor, colored and massive sounding. As a contrast to Aggressive mode, Smooth mode is characterized by incredible transparency and signal enhancement, even under heavy compression. The result is a compressor that can adapt to any source and produce outstanding results.
