Focusriteâ€™s Liquid Mix is now shipping worldwide 11/07/06
We featured the Liquid Mix in our video coverage of the Frankfurt Messe earlier this year and now Focusrite tell us that the Mac OSX Version is now shipping worldwide and delivery of the PC version is set for early in Q4. In addition, the final list of 40 compressor and 20 EQ emulations is at the liquid downloads page.
The Liquid Mix emulations have been under construction for over two years, with some emulations requiring more than 8,000 separate sampling sequences taken over a period of months to ensure genuine emulation. Liquid Mixâ€™s immensely powerful onboard DSP can easily handle such complex emulations, though, and is able to drive up to 32 Liquid Mix compressors and 32 EQs simultaneously.
Plans for additional emulations are already well advanced, as well as presets to be made available online for those desiring to quickly get the most out of vintage and classic compression and EQ.
The Liquid Mix GUI has also undergone some final cosmetic tweaks as well as extensive beta testing of both software and hardware on a plethora of different setups and sequencers. As the software continues to evolve, so all new versions will immediately be made available for download from the Liquid downloads page listed above.
Focusrite tell us that from the outset, Liquid Mix will now ship with a Liquid Mix FXpansion VST to RTAS wrapper, ensuring it works fluidly with both Pro Tools HD and LE at no extra cost. This requires Pro Tools 7.0. Operation with earlier versions will require the full FXpansion VST toRTAS wrapper software, available online from
