Although I had spent a lot of time researching this unit and had heard quite a few negatives I decided to take a chance. Instead, the hardware follows the software selected plug-in. In other words, if particular functions such as Attack and Release settings weren’t available on the original compression unit in question, Liquid Mix’s Free mode enables you to tweak these parameters anyway, effectively meaning that a classic pile of processors gets dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Each one of the 16 mono plug-ins can be a different compressor and hybrid EQ, chosen from a list of forty compressors and twenty EQs, representing both vintage and modern “classic” analog processors. Additionally, the Liquid Mix 16 processes audio at up to a maximum sampling rate of 96kHz, while the Liquid Mix will function up to kHz.

It works great and sounds great. Update Unrecognized Zip Code.

Housed in a desktop control surface with its own DSP, the system is connected to a computer via FireWire. Each of these processes models a specific compressor or EQ via the Dynamic Convolution technology, but rather than simply offering ‘copies’ of the original gear which would be great anywayLiquid Mix allows for ‘extended’ processing.
This process provides a true representation of the actual analog circuitry while still allowing for absolute repeatability, something often impossible to achieve in the analog domain.
That’s the bad news. Will you really miss the screen? As for processing power, only you know how involved your mix needs to be. All-access artist interviews, in-depth gear reviews, essential production tutorials and much focuerite. Enter new zip code to refresh estimated delivery time. You liquiv do exactly this, either by selecting a ‘global’ EQ across the board or by piecing together a hybrid EQ solution one band at a time.

Llquid, the Liquid Mix 16 processes audio at up to a maximum sampling rate of 96kHz, while the Liquid Mix will function up to kHz. The second question is more significant, as Liquid Mix’s focusrkte GUI provides all of the visual feedback you need and we prefer to check settings on our monitors than on a separate screen anyway. We’ve always been a fan of this on Liquid Mix as Focusrite has taken it seriously.

While the screen dedicated to showing your compression and EQ settings is gone, the metering remains as before. Rated 4 out of 5 by The Wrabbit from Great liqujd not without flaws I’ve used this in just about every mix i’ve made since buying.
Pros The best bits of Liquid Mix for much less dough. Hopefully focusrite revisits this product in the future with a more modern, kink free unit. The paragraphic aspect was very minimal, on most you can’t have a high Q and at the end I kept reaching for the stock Logic EQ.
This technology is Focusrite’s alone and, in Liquid Mix, 40 compressors and 20 EQs were modelled from specific classic mixing desks and outboard hardware.
Similarly, the Lkquid algorithms can liauid applied one band at a time, so if you want the sound of a classic ’60s British EQ on the top-end of your mix but want something smoother to round out the lower frequencies, no problem. You can get fat and warm tones easy.
However, if the “FREE” button is active then the compressor emulation will have all possible available controls with full ranges accessible for use The users can build their own EQs using all of the available seven slots on a single Liquid Mix channel. The main difference between the Liquid Mix 16 and the Liquid Mix is the number of channels each provides at various sample rates.
So sonically, this box is absolutely a match for its big brother. For example, the focusrlte filter can be taken from a Focusrite MKII emulation for band one, the low-mid parametric from a Neve emulation for band two, a mid-band from an API emulation for band three and so on until band seven Powered from the FireWire bus. The good news is that focusritte 40 compression models and all 20 EQs remain from Liquid Mix. The proprietary DSP allows the intensive “Dynamic Convolution” processing that is at the core of the product, to have very little impact on the host computer’s CPU.
