Mixing – as a discipline and as an art – has come of age, but is by no means remaining static. Its continued growth and refinement require the support of equally mature technical products that can keep pace with (or stay ahead of) the demands of the business. At the heart of every successful studio is a mixing environment capable of meeting the tough production requirements of producers and engineers, and capable of adapting to the uniqueness of every artist and every work of art.
Why Harrison? The Record Speaks for Itself.
Over the last 40 years, Harrison consoles have earned, throughout the world, an enviable reputation for excellence. This is no accident. Such a level of acceptance can only be gained as a product proves its maturity through performance in the field. This real-time reputation is, without a doubt, the best measure of a product's true worth. For example, the world renowned Harrison 32C analog console was used on records by Michael Jackson "Thriller", Paul Simon "Graceland", Janet Jackson, AC/DC, ABBA, Queen, 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.
Dynamic Maturity + Contemporary Mixing
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 today's technological advancements to precisely emulate not only the operational advantages, but to faithfully emulate the analog performance of the traditional analog console.
List of changes in v4.3:
Audition action ("A"):
Press "A" (audition) to start playback:
If a Track is selected, the track(s) will be automatically solo'ed.
If a Range is selected, the selected track(s) will be automatically solo'ed.
If a Region is selected, the tracks will be soloe'd, and the selected region(s) will be played... regardless of their location in the region layer stack. Unselected regions (even regions on the same track) will be muted.
When the transport is stopped, the solos will be cleared.
Press ESC to clear the selection (and clear solos)
Zoom action ("Z"):
"Z" zooms to selection (as before)
NEW: If no selection exists, "Z" will zoom out both axes.
Added peak-hold dot to channelstrip meters.
The peak-hold dot turns red when clipping only in the case of a track metering the input level. This also applies to the peak-hold display under the fader.
You can adjust the peak-hold time in Preferences->Metering.
Knobs in 32C: display values in the channel name slate:
Frequency knobs show values 0-100% (sorry, it is still not practical to display the exact frequency)
Gain knobs now display the gain value in the slate.
Mixbus send knobs display the mixbus name, and value.
Lua Script buttons become more generic “Action-Buttons”
Action-Buttons can now trigger an action shortcut or a Lua script.
Show the Action-Buttons from Preferences->Appearance->Toolbar
Right-click on the action button to assign its function.
Added dedicated support for the new PreSonus Faderport16 ( beta / work in progress)
Added dedicated support for Tascam US-2400 control surface. video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHJwTncc2e4
Added Tascam US-2400 and Behringer X-Touch to the list of devices that will not be auto-connected to a track input, when a new MIDI track is instantiated.
Master bus compressor: changing the knob would not automatically turn the compressor "on". This has been fixed.
VST plugin timestamps: if the VST dll was timestamped in the “future”, it would always be ignored. This has been fixed.
When selecting a track in a group, you would be scrolled to the first (top) channel in the group. This has been fixed. Selecting a track will scroll to show the selected track, not the top of the group.
Template files have their own extension so they can be readily recognized ( .ardour-template-archive rather than the generic "tar.xz" )
Improvements to .ptf session import.
Mac: Don’t recurse into VST bundle folders. This fixes a problem when there’s a symlink to the VST folder inside the VST folder itself, which creates an infinite recursive loop and prevents Mixbus from launching.
Mac: VST plugins would not allow text entry, even if the green keyboard was enabled. This has been fixed.
Windows: Fixed an error that can prevent launching on Windows when the username had non-ascii characters in it.
Windows: Creating an archive ( session archive, track-templates, or session-templates ) from the Mixbus dialog could take "forever" and result in huge file sizes. This has been fixed.
