Audio workstation for recording, editing, mixing, and mastering your music.

Overview

Mixbus is a full-featured digital audio workstation for recording, editing, mixing, and mastering your music.

With dozens of DAWs to choose from, there's only one that is designed to work like a Harrison, with an analog paradigm that embodies form, function, and sound. Where other DAWs use a computer paradigm, MIXBUS grows from Harrison's distinguished 40-year heritage of platinum records and blockbuster films, such as Thriller, Graceland, and Spider-Man. MIXBUS is the first full-featured DAW with true analog style mixing.

A Partial list of Mixbus features:
  • Straightforward "knob per function" mixer layout based on Harrison's renowned music consoles.
  • Precise emulation based on Harrison's famous 32 series analog console circuit designs.
  • Precision algorithms for EQ, Filter, Compression, Analog Tape Saturation, and Summing.
  • The Mixbus 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 plug-ins, sends, and hardware inserts. (limited only by CPU and disc speed).
  • Unlimited MIDI tracks, each with virtual instrument support, unlimited plug-ins, sends and inserts.
  • Polarity, Input trim, High-pass Filter, Sweepable 3-band EQ, Compression, and 8 Mix Bus sends on every track.
  • 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 both 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).
  • Fourth-generation Harrison "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.

What's new in Mixbus

Version 6.0.702:
  • New 5th-generation audio engine with smoother operation, better looping, and extensive latency compensation through more DAW-style bussing and sidechain paths.
  • Cue-monitoring: MIDI tracks now monitor both the input and playback simultaneously, by default.
  • DAW-style "Aux" buses are now integrated in the Mixbus engine, with latency compensation and pans that can follow the main track panner, or not.
  • Foldback buses allow the building of unlimited custom cue mixes for artists.
  • A new Cut Tool is dedicated to splitting regions in addition to the existing keyboard shortcuts.
  • Source List: Organize your recordings by Take ID, so you can locate and recover that great take from yesterday's session.
  • Virtual MIDI Keyboard: enter rhythms and melodies with your QWERTY keybard, with controller and transposition features.
  • Native MP3 import+export on all platforms (Mac, Windows and Linux).
