The Harrison 32C Analog Legacy
The original Harrison 32C analog console was used on records by Michael Jackson “Thriller”, Paul Simon “Graceland”, Janet Jackson, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, ELO, Genesis, Blondie, and Supertramp to name a few, and was instrumental in establishing the sound of those amazing records. Many of those consoles are still in operation throughout the world.
Harrison has pioneered the use of high-performance computer technology over the last 20 years to provide unmatched processing power in the world’s 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 component of the circuit was included in the model. It was impossible to run this complex DSP on every channel strip just 5 years ago.
Analog Console Style Busing
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.
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 plug-in 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: Mixbus loads AudioUnit (AU) plug-ins on OSX; and VST3, VST and LV2 plug-ins on all platforms.
Mixbus 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).
Latest generation of Harrison’s “True Analog Mixing™” processing engine with enhanced compressor/limiter algorithms; built-in sidechain bussing, and increased plug-in flexibility.
Support for video timeline, video window, and audio+video exports.
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 channel’s 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.
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 8 mixbus sends. Dedicated support is provided for popular devices like the Presonus Faderport, Mackie MCU, and Behringer X-Touch controllers.
OSC (Open Sound Control) protocol supports ethernet-based wireless tablet controllers such as TouchOSC and Lemur for iOS and Android to remote-control Mixbus.
Lua Scripting: Use the Lua scripting language to automate tasks such as track creation, renaming tracks, adding plugins, or creating “macro” operations.
VCA Faders: Use VCA faders to control multiple channel faders at once. A fader can be assigned to multiple remote VCA faders, adding another powerful dimension of control and organization to your mixes.
Tempo Ramps and Tempo Maps: Use advanced features to map your live recording’s tempo and structure (no need to record to a click!) – or import a tempo map from MIDI.
Clip launching via the “Cue” page: Drag, drop and launch clips using included content or clip content you create. Integrate Clip launching on the Editor timeline for more creative production.
