Sounds Great! It is a emulator. It basically has a whole bunch of settings from different famous preamps and compressors. You can mix them together. I usually use the Avalon settings VT747. The 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.
