Version 2 software update for the Liquid Channel professional channel strip is available for download from the Focusrite Website (www.focusrite.com). A MIDI controller number list, found on the Focusrite site, outlines the LiquidControl V. 2 spec, allowing the unit to be controlled using an external MIDI device or even a MIDI sequencer.
This means that engineers can switch between controlling virtual or hardware instruments and the Liquid Channel with their MIDI controller keyboard. Additionally, MIDI Program Change messages will recall Liquid Channel patches, a saved combination of mic pre, compressor and EQ settings, so that one button press or knob rotation will call up a completely different session. Furthermore, mic pre gain and compressor and EQ settings can all be automated from within the sequencer’s MIDI tracks.
