Harrison Mixbus - Virtual Harrison Mixer plus full-featured DAW for OS X
Harrison, the manufacturer of world-class analog and digital consoles, is proud to announce Mixbus(tm) with True Analog Mixing(tm) for OS X.
Mixbus is a virtual "analog console" integrated into a full-featured Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). True Analog Mixing provides a virtual mixing surface that is based on Harrison's renowned 32-Series and MR-Series console designs, plus Harrison's proprietary digital mixing technology. Mixbus enables the user to record, edit, and mix a musical performance "in the box" but get a sound reminiscent of the golden age of album recordings.
Traditional DAW mixers, designed by companies with no pedigree in music mixing, all suffer from well-known flaws. Harrison eliminated these flaws by completely redesigning the DAW's internal mixing engine and applying proprietary algorithms. Harrison large-format consoles are known for their great-sounding EQ, filters, dynamics, and bus summing on every track. Mixbus offers every engineer a real Harrison music console "in the box". With Mixbus's logical knob-per-function interface, the user works with the fluidity of a traditional analog recording studio while retaining the convenience of a DAW.

Many influential works - from Michael Jackson's Thriller (the best-selling album of all time) to the latest blockbuster films - have been mixed on Harrison consoles.

Drawing on Harrison's proprietary DSP algorithms and an extensive analog heritage, the mixing engine in Harrison's Mixbus will change the way you think about mixing in-the-box!
