You can 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. Focusrite’s Liquid Mix was originally released in to wide acclaim. As standard, half of the processing power is gone. The compressors are what makes this unit really worth the money. Will you really miss the screen? Rated 4 out of 5 by The Wrabbit from Great but not without flaws I’ve used this in just about every mix i’ve made since buying.

Focusrite Liquid Mix 16 – FireWire DSP Processor LIQUID MIX 16
Rated 5 out of 5 by okutowa from Really Nice Tone! See any errors on this page? Focusrite’s Liquid Mix was originally released in to wide acclaim. Our Verdict Focusrite’s Liquid Mix technology at a knockdown price – what’s not to like? Housed in a desktop control surface with its own DSP, the system is connected to a tocusrite via FireWire. As for ilquid power, only you know how involved your mix needs to be.
Option to expand to channels of processing. Pros The best bits of Liquid Mix for much less dough.
Focusrite Liquid Mix 16 review | MusicRadar
Instead, if you’re pondering a purchase, you’ve got a simple couple of decisions to make. The paragraphic aspect was very minimal, on most you can’t have a high Q and at the miz I kept reaching for the stock Logic EQ. You can get fat and warm tones easy.
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.
61 based control surface with dedicated DSP. All of this is achieved courtesy of the relationship between the plug-ins themselves and the hardware unit which controls them, which is where the processing is carried out. Screen absence aside, there’s almost nothing to distinguish Liquid Mix 16 from the original Liquid Mix. 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.
The Liquid Mix 16 from Focusrite delivers virtual dynamics and EQ processing for DAW applications, based on an unequalled variety of classic signal processor emulations.
Liquid mix is so nice! Emulation of high-end vintage and modern day sound processors.
The main difference between the Liquid Mix 16 and the Liquid Mix is the number of channels each provides at various sample rates.
The compressors are what makes this unit really worth the money. This means that your CPU will barely register Liquid Mix’s work-rate, ensuring that low latency applications, such as use during tracking, are extremely effective. 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.
Liquid Mix 16 takes the very same compressors and equalizers found in the earlier product and provides 16 channels of dynamics and EQ.
Input, output and gain reduction LEDs flank the outer edges and these remain as eye-catching and useful as ever. That’s the bad news.
The moment we discovered that a stripped-down Liquid Mix was to become available, we assumed that the ‘cutting back’ would include some of the compressor and Ilquid types, so we’re delighted to discover that this isn’t the case.
You can do exactly this, either by selecting a ‘global’ EQ mi the board or by piecing together a hybrid EQ solution one band at a time. The included external power supply can be utilized in the event that the computer has only a four-pin FireWire connector An optional DSP expansion card is available to increase the maximum channel count at higher sample rates.
If you tend to do all of your compression and EQ tweaks in your DAW with a mouse alone, it’s impossible to overstate how wonderful it is to have hardware control instead. Enter new zip code to refresh estimated delivery time. The EQ’s on the other hand didn’t impress me very much.
Be the first to review this item. Here was a FireWire-based desktop box, which co-ordinated with a set of plug-ins to unleash a brand new technology: Update Unrecognized Zip Code.
The good news is that all 40 compression models and all 20 EQs remain from Liquid Mix.
