Harrison Mixbus 32C v3.6.0 WiN | 42 Mb
Harrison Mixbus32C is as relevant today as the first Harrison 32 series consoles were 40 years ago. Harrison consoles are dynamically mature products - products that retain the benefits of long, successful experience while incorporating the best of all the new technology. Mixbus32C is designed in the most operationally ergonomic manner possible.
Mixbus was hailed by the industry as a breakthrough for “in the box mixing by incorporating decades of console building experience into a cost effective mixing platform for today. Mixbus32C takes that concept to the natural next step by using the full resources of todays technological advancements to precisely emulate not only the operational advantages, but to faithfully emulate the analog performance of the traditional analog console.
Because of the way the Mixbus32C mixer page is laid out, the most commonly used controls are displayed and are accessible at all times using a rich, high contrast, GUI design that gracefully and accurately emulates the original hardware version of the Harrison 32C console. This traditional layout not only looks good but allows the engineer to approach the console as if it were a musical instrument, directly affecting the art of mixing and contributing greatly to the success of any given mix.
Harrison has pioneered the use of high performance computer technology over the last 20 years to provide unmatched processing power in the worlds largest mixing environments. By keeping up with these incremental technological steps through the decades, Harrison can now faithfully emulate the beautifully designed analog signal processing designs of the past and incorporate them into a full function “True Analog mixing console within the digital audio workstation environment.
Each Mixbus32C channel strip incorporates an exact emulation of the original Harrison 32C parametric four-band sweepable EQ with a separately switchable filter section including second order high-pass and low-pass filters. Every resistor, capacitor, and transistor was modeled. To run this complex DSP on every channel strip was impossible just 5 years ago.
Mixbus32C provides 12 stereo mix buses, each with individual level control, latency compensation, and associated master channel incorporating the highly successful Harrison tape saturation, bus compression, and tone control functionality.
Some Mixbus32C Features
Straightforward “knob per function mixer layout based on Harrisons renowned 32-series music consoles
Precise emulation based on Harrisons famous 32 series analog console circuit designs
Precision algorithms for EQ, Filter, Compression, Analog Tape Saturation, and Summing
Fourth-generation Harrison True Analog Mixing processing engine with enhanced compressor/limiter algorithms; built-in sidechain busing, and increased plugin flexibility
The Mixbus32C engine is internally dithered, ramped, and gain staged so that sound quality is preserved as close to analog as possible
Unlimited stereo or mono input channels, each with unlimited plugins, sends, and hardware inserts. (limited only by CPU and disc speed)
Unlimited MIDI tracks, each with virtual instrument support, unlimited plugins, sends and inserts
Polarity, Input trim, Sweepable 4-band EQ with second order HP and LP filters, Compression, and 12 mix bus sends on every track
Mixbus32C has an optimized signal flow with 12 stereo mix buses and a master bus, all featuring Tone controls, Compression, Sidechaining, and Analog Tape Saturation simulation
Stereo Master bus that features Tone controls, Analog Tape Saturation, K-meter, Stereo Correlation Meter, and Limiter
Automatic plugin delay compensation to support effects such as parallel compression without time misalignment
Comprehensive at-a-glance metering with peak, peak hold, and compressor gain reduction visible on every track and bus
Extensive DAW editing features including “Smart Tool, Ripple Edit, and configurable keybindings for nearly every operation
Industry standard plug-in support: Mixbus32C loads VST plugins on ShiChuang, AudioUnit (AU) plugins on OSX, and LV2 plugins on all platforms
Industry standard audio I/O support: Mixbus32C uses ASIO/Directsound on ShiChuang, CoreAudio on OSX, and ALSA/JACK on Linux
Mixbus32C provides professional features such as Loudness Analysis (dBTP+LUFS+LU Range), LTC (SMPTE) generation and sync; video pullup/pulldown
Persistent undo (undo remains possible after closing and reopening a session)
Multi-core and 64-bit optimizations provide increased track counts across all OS platforms
Over 25 MIDI filter plug-ins including functions such as transposing, velocity scaling, etc
Support for video timeline, video window, and audio+video exports
Includes a brand-new virtual instrument: “SetBfree, a lovingly modeled Tonewheel Organ by Robin Gareus plus Harrisons Dyno-Mite envelope-designer plug-in for drums
Recording operates like a tape machine: punch-in on the fly, and use per-track input monitoring just like a multitrack tape machine
Extensive export features including multitrack stem export, simultaneous multi-format exports, multiple export ranges, CD track markers, silence trimming, normalization, and command-line arguments to trigger third-party encoders or file-management scripts
Audio regions are stacked in “layers, and every region fadein/out is a crossfade to the region(s) beneath it
Plugin “pin connection management provides rich editing of signal-flow through each channels path, including full support for dual mono, mono-to-stereo, sidechaining, and other advanced flows
The user interface scales to fit your monitor; larger monitors will get bigger knobs and sharper text
Refined workflow and graphics, including scaling and support for HiDPI (Retina) displays
Incredibly cost effective because of our world-wide open source collaborators
Generic MIDI devices can use “MIDI Learn to assign MIDI controls directly to on-screen knobs or use MIDI profiles to select many pre-configured device layouts from a pull-down menu
Mackie control protocol is provided for motorized fader controllers, and the Mackie protocols have been extended to ergonomically control the Mixbus channelstrip EQ, compressor, and 12 mix bus sends. Dedicated support is provided for popular devices like the Presonus Faderport, Mackie MCU, and Behringer X-Touch controllers
OSC (Open Source Control) protocol supports ethernet-based wireless tablet controllers such as TouchOSC and Lemur for iOS and Android to remote-control Mixbus32C
Mixbus32C will open Mixbus sessions. However, the EQ will not covert since they are completely different.
