Liquid Mix v1.5 features software solutions for PC and all Macs, including Intel Macs, and operates within every major sequencer, including both Pro Tools HD and LE (version 7.0 and above, using included VST/RTAS wrapper). Version 1.5 is available as a download from Focusrite's website.

Focusrite's Liquid Mix is a DSP-powered add-on for your computer that hosts a large range of compressor and equaliser plug-ins, all created using a novel form of convolution technology to measure and then emulate the audio characteristics of hardware devices. We carried a fairly detailed preview a couple of months ago, but now that the production version (v1.2) is shipping, we've had a chance to put all its emulated EQs and compressors to the test and also to try out some small updates to the original software.

For the benefit of those who may have missed our preview, the Liquid Mix is based on the DSP-powered compressor and EQ sections of Focusrite's Liquid Channel, and packages these processes into plug-ins that can be used in a Mac or PC-based recording system. Up to 32 channels of EQ and compression can be used at the same time via the insert points and busses of your chosen DAW software, and because the plug-ins run on the Liquid Mix's DSP rather than the host CPU, there's very little extra load on the computer, even when the maximum 32 channels of processing are running.
