Software Harrison introduces Mixbus32C version 6

Harrison is proud to announce the latest update to our flagship DAW, Mixbus32C!

Mixbus32C is a full-featured audio workstation with recording, arranging, editing, mixing, and mastering features:

The Mixbus32C mixer page is where Mixbus differs from all other workstations. Here you'll find a real "mixer" developed by a company who makes the real thing:

Harrison is the only DAW developer with a 45-year history of making studio consoles. Pictured below is the Harrison 32C circa 1980. The EQs in Mixbus32C are voiced and tested by some of the same people who worked on the original Harrison Series32 consoles:




What's New in Mixbus32C v6?

Here's a short video by our favorite product specialist, Nik, introducing the new features in version 6:

  • Harrison 5th generation Mixbus processing engine with many improvements including smoother operation, extensive latency compensation, and cue-monitoring (the ability to hear live input and playback at the same time on a track).
  • Dedicated FX buses: Mixbuses 1-8 can now assign to mixbuses 9-12, permitting their use as dedicated FX buses or matrix outputs.
  • The EQ, Sends, and Input/Recording sections can now be shown&hidden, allowing Mixbus32C to fit on smaller monitors.
  • Foldback buses allow the building of unlimited custom cue mixes for artists.
  • ...plus hundreds of additional fixes and improvements! See the full change-list here.

What would be the upgrade price from version 4? Or do I have to get version 5 first?

Some great features and engine improvements in this one but it's hard to tear myself away from Studio One for the ARA2 and advanced editing. I tried recording in S1 and then importing all the tracks to Mixbus to mix and I liked the results but it's just easier to stay in S1. I'll probably upgrade just to play around with it, would really love to see ARA and VST3

Ok thanks, got the email but didn't read it closely, just assumed it was for V5.

Weird, I have regular Mixbus v5 as well as 32C and didn’t get an email...looks interesting! Curious to try it out, some of those improvements look very nice.

FWIW Ben said that regular Mixbus will be available in about a month. I think that upgrade will be $19- like before.

Every single time Harrison releases a major upgrade, I feel like I'm learning a new
DAW. Time for me to go back to Studio One.

Is that because you pay for upgrades to Studio One and nothing changes?

I've been using Mixbus32C for a few versions now... it seems pretty much the same thing to me, just with improvements and fixes.

Studio One can add a feature but they don't keep changing what you used to. You can go and see version 2 as well as version 3 to 4 and 5 huge editing sequencing difference in Harrison Mixbus. All of a sudden I feel like now I'm adapting to a new DAW all the time. I have said in the past ok I will adapt. Now again I will have to adapt for a new version. Now I have to click EQ section and Sends to see them every single time.

I think that about this there is a preference which keeps the behavior of the previous version

Uhh, trying the demo, where did the sidechain button go? Am I missing something?

Sidechain is handled by plugins in 6. Button is no more. Vani****o.

Which Harrison compressor can sidechain?

@zohomo: a-compressor (provided with Mixbus) has a dedicated sidechain input. To pick a sidechain source, click on the "Pin connections" button at the top-left of the plugin window and select the source track(s) from the pulldown menu.

If you want to get really tweaky, the Harrison AVA Multiband Compressor has an external sidechain input. It even has a dedicated eq in the sidechain so you can focus the action on a specific frequency.

I've been buying into Mixbus from pretty much day one, but never (apart from one complicated classical album) managed to stick with it long enough to finish a project on it, too many bugs and crashes on my MacPro, and Studio One really does have an amazing workflow - But, BUT! This latest version is brilliant, and stable, and yes, I hear people saying they've moved stuff, and we have to re-learn some things, but these are real improvements to the workflow. I'm completely sold now, I think with version 6 they've finally got an amazing product. Yep, got to learn some new tricks, but what a sound! This is an amazing DAW - any work put into learning will pay off in great sounding mixes - that come together far quicker than in any other DAW I've worked in. Buy it.

Has the CPU usage of plugins improved at all?? This was always an issue with Mixbus in the past. VI's especially. Harrison's answer to that is you won't need to use as many plugins with Mixbus which is just spin to coverup for inefficient plugin CPU handling.

After a very long break I decided to try the DAW again. But the user experience felt rather bad. Even with the largest scaling(140%) everything just looked way too small. Also there was certain GUI lag time to time. My screen is 24 inch 1080p. Also inserting Slate VMR immediately crashed the daw. So that was the end of my experience.

I do think Slate has a problem with MB
Fwiw. Agree the GUI is too small I wish they’d offer a Valhalla type graphic layout and forget the Darth Vader design. Such a great tool doesn’t need a faux console look with small buttons and labeling....

I let Slate know and they obviously let it slide and ironically it used to work fine...
