24 March 2020

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 5.3.22:

Note: Although Mixbus v5 can open sessions from prior versions, we highly encourage you to continue using old versions for old sessions, and start new sessions in v5. This will maximize the new features in v5, and minimize any potential conflicts. You can keep older and newer versions of Mixbus installed simultaneously on your computer
