I have been a long time user of the Focusrite Liquid Mix. For the past few years, I have noticed that it does not work during the exporting of mixdowns with the 64bit version of Cubase 6.5 and Cubase 8.
It works perfectly for everything else, but when I have to mix down, I need to switch to the 32bit version of Cubase, and it works fine there. Any tracks with the Liquid Mix on it just seem jumbled up, random snare hits out of time.
I had thought that because it was a relatively old piece of tech that it was just a reality of technology but since the general silly issues brought in by Cubase 8, I have looked into Reaper more and more.
I have found that Reaper 64bit exports mixdowns with the Liquid Mix perfectly.
What could be going on in Cubase 64bit that would make the unit fail? Is there anything under the hood which I can try and change in the settings?
I can’t pinpoint when I started getting the issue. When I moved to Cubase 64bit, it was with my move to C6.5 and I did not need the Liquid Mix that much. Before then, it was C5 32bit which I used it on. It is the same issue with Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. I had hoped it was a Windows issue, but a recent trial with W7 confirms that it is a Cubase issue.
