As I said in the referred post, customizing the router for Liquid 56 is
just matter of information any user can easily provide to me; however,
no user did so up to now.

Mostly, the monitoring part is specific to each saffire pro device
(while similar in spirit). Focusrite usually answered when I asked for
information (this was the case for the monitoring section of Pro 14,
among others). If some improvement could be done in router support, it
would be easier to convince them to provide the necessary infos.
Otherwise, it would require reverse-engineering, possibly not so hard,
but not feasible by myself as I don't have such a device.
