Audio Hardware : The Liquid Channel emulates every pre-amp and every compressor - macmusicFocusrite's brand new Liquid Channel transports classic front-end processing into the digital age, removing the need for endless patching and adding fluidity and reliability to the studio environment. Quite simply, The Liquid Channel is every mic-pre and compressor combination in history, inside a single 192kHz 2U device.

This is achieved through a unique two-part process.

The URS A Classic Console EQ (vintage Api EQ emulation) is a Class AB classic in every sense of the word. Each band offers 7 switchable filter frequencies spanning 4 to 5 octaves. The URS B is unlike any other equalizer you will ever use.

The URS N Classic Console EQ (vintage Neve EQ emulation) is very broad banded and musical. It is a must have tool for recording and sweetening drums and bass. It is smooth and silky and a little goes a long way.
