I heard that the optional DSP expansion card increases the channel count to sixteen at 88.2k/96k and eight at 192k.

Does it increase the the channel count at 44.1 and 48 kHz?

What about using it while mixing a track? What would be the proper level for your track?

Currently I have 2 Liquid Channels for my pres so I can use them when tracking but I only use the Liquid Mix for mixing.

Any tips would be great!

I was talking about everything. You can use math to actually get a rough mix during the tracking phase using -18dBFS in the DAW as the loudest any peak should reach, which is usually snare drum if you're tracking without compression. With compression during tracking, things get more complicated.

I had a LM32 and 2-3 (don’t remember) UAD1 cards in a G5 running DP with a MOTU HD192 for many years before I went TDM (and then HDX years later).

I loved the combination of LM and UAD. They offered different flavors, but I basically relied on the LM for most of my track EQ/Comp and UAD for more extreme EQ/Comp and Delays/Verbs.

The LM had a bunch of great convolutions. I wasn’t tracking through plugs back then so latency wasn’t an issue. I still listen to stuff I did with that system from 15 years ago and think it sounds very analog. Whatever that means... but I guess I’m just saying that I believe that the technology offered what it claimed to... analog vibe in the box in the earlier days of digital.

I wouldn’t have sold it if I could have continued using it... sadly, FW400 obviously/inevitably went the way of the dinosaurs. Oh well.
