Digidesign, the North American distributor of Focusrite products, is now shipping Focusrite’s The Liquid Channel, a pro channel strip that transports classic front-end processing into the digital age. The Liquid Channel emulates classic mic pre’s and compressors in a single 192kHz-compatible 2U device.
A new digital EQ loosely based on Focusrite’s ISA 110 channel strip is also available. A USB connection on the rear panel links to Focusrite’s LiquidControl software application, enabling the archiving of replicas and surplus user memories, as well as providing remote operation of up to eight Liquid Channel units. The Liquid Channel comes with 40 mic pre replicas and 40 compressor replicas. The end user can “mix and match” pre’s, compressors and the EQ section to create customized channel strip configurations in The Liquid Channel’s 100 user memories. The Liquid Channel is fully expandable as the USB port also facilitates downloads of additional replicas from a dedicated Website, www.ffliquid.com.
