For the second year running, Sound On Sound's readers have voted Focusrite's Liquid Channel as "Best Preamp" available. This award recognises and appreciates Liquid Channel's individual approach to signal processing.
Matt Derbyshire, Focusrite's Senior Product Manager comments: "The Liquid Channel is a truly unique channel strip, which really has lasted the test of time. At the time of design, it broke new ground in mic pre design which to this day is unparalleled."
Recently, Focusrite put Liquid Channel through a double-blind A-B test against the original hardware units which it emulates, involving a pair of highly acclaimed engineers at Snap! studios, London. More often than not, Liquid Channel was chosen as the preferred sound. See the article and video on the Focusrite website
for more info.
