The new software release will be available for free to download early in April 2007 and delivers a number of improvements over the original software. The new release makes Liquid Mix a no-brainer for producers and engineers wanting classic vintage processing, but with the flexibility of the digital world.
Liquid Mix v2.0 now features an EQ side-chain on the compressor, providing an additional one-band EQ to be fed into the side-chain of any classic compressor emulation. Combined with the existing “Listen” feature, this provides the ideal solution for high quality de-essing and more creative compression.
V2.0 also ensures that the Hardware follows the Software GUI functionality in every way. V2.0 also delivers improved stability on both PC and Mac, making Liquid Mix rock-solid, even when operating with all 32 instances simultaneously.
For users struggling with buffer issues, Liquid Mix v2.0 offers variable buffer size as well as supporting large DAW buffer sizes, helping to ensure lower latency operation across all sequencers, and provide compatibility with software packages such as Wavelab, SoundForge and Audition.
These, combined with a host of other improvements, must surely guarantee Liquid Mix’s position at the top of the vintage processing emulation leader-board.
Liquid Mix v2.0 is available for Musik Messe attendees to try out for themselves - simply visit the Focusrite booth — Number A90, Hall 5.1
