It works great and sounds great. 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. The compressors are unbelievable, they sound better than most other plugin emulations and take the strain off the cpu. 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. 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. Similarly, the EQ algorithms can be 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. Firstly, does the absence of a screen bother you and, secondly, can you live with only half of the processing power?

Emulation of high-end vintage and modern day sound processors. Liquid Mix 16 takes the very same compressors and equalizers found in the earlier product and provides 16 channels of dynamics and 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. 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. The second question is more significant, as Liquid Mix’s software GUI provides all of the visual feedback you need and we prefer to check settings on our monitors than on a separate screen anyway.

Similarly, the EQ algorithms can be 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. That’s focusrie bad news. It’s great to be able to keep things fresh with alternative compression and EQ models too and, as switching these in and out is so simple, Liquid Mix really encourages a bold, creative approach to liquix.
Hopefully focusrite revisits this product in the future with a more modern, kink free unit.
After trouble shooting for 3 hours I finally gave up As for processing power, only you know how involved your foxusrite needs to be. The same controls flank the unit, with the bottom row of dials mostly dedicated to control of the compression settings while Gain, Frequency and Q dials allow control of the EQ, along with the EQ Band Select button, which cycles mic the bands. In keeping with its name, Liquid Mix 16 is limited to a standard 16 channels of EQ and compression processing, although this is expandable to 24 via an optional expansion card.
So sonically, ffocusrite box is absolutely a match for its big brother. Its compressor and EQ tools sound great and are comprehensive in terms of sonic variety. Be the first to review this item.
You can get fat and warm tones easy. Instead, the hardware follows the software selected plug-in.
The compressors are what makes this unit really worth the money. Focustite 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. 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.
The good news is that all 40 compression models and all 20 EQs remain from Liquid Mix.
Our Verdict Focusrite’s Liquid Mix technology at a knockdown price – what’s not to like? Whichever Liquid Mix you choose, you won’t be disappointed – it’s a dynamics and EQ solution fcusrite remains a class apart.
Rated 3 out of 5 by J. 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.
Focusrite Liquid Mix 16 – FireWire DSP Processor LIQUID MIX 16
It works great and sounds great. No Longer Available Update Location close. The main difference between the Liquid Mix 16 and the Liquid Mix is the number of channels each liquif at various sample rates. Input, output and gain reduction LEDs flank the outer edges and these remain as eye-catching and useful as ever.
Upon arriving I set it up and everything was installed properly, I opened the unit in logic and everything loaded except the actual emulations. As standard, half of the processing power is gone. Who knows how accurate they are compared with the real units.
There’s no disputing the quality of Liquid Mix. Write a review cysczbaqfbtwttxxerbczdbscffrwrrtfysus.
