NO BRAINER DEAL : Harrison Mixbus - Fully Featured Digital Audio Workstation (DAW)

This No Brainer Deal Has Ended! Sign up for our mailing list and be the first to know abut upcoming No Brainer Deals.


RSPE Audio has teamed up with Harrison to offer their new release, Mixbus V2.5, for the “No Brainer Deal" price of only $19.95! This Mind Bending price is nearly 90% off!

This is a full licensed copy of Harrison's newest version of Mixbus, v2.5!
Mixbus is a full-featured DAW for multi-track recording, editing, mixing and mastering. The Mixbus mixer is designed by Harrison: the manufacturer of consoles used in the world's most demanding music, film, and live performance facilities. Harrison consoles are known for their great-sounding EQ, filters, dynamics, and bus summing. If you find a music recording from the golden age of albums - the 70s and 80s - that has stood the test of time, it is likely that a Harrison console was used during the production. With the Harrison sound and a logical knob-per-function mixer interface, Mixbus invites you to produce recordings and mixes that will stand with the best.

Designed to complement your current setup with analog-style mixing, Mixbus is compatible with nearly any desktop running Windows, OSX, or Linux. Mixbus loads third-party plug-ins in common formats such as AU and VST. It also uses Harrison's suite of plug-ins that are derived from the company’s analog and digital console processing. Mixbus and the Harrison plugins provide rock-solid mixing DSP typically reserved for high-end audio installations. Harrison has been a leader in digital audio technology for nearly 30 years.


3 New Plugin Demos Included

In addition to program improvements, v2.5 includes three new plug-in demos from Harrison’s XTools for Mixbus plug-in series: the XT-EG Expander / Gate, the XT-DS De-Esser, and the innovative XT-VC Vocal Character plugin.

The XT-EG Expander / Gate provides fast gating or expansion with precision timing for demanding tracks. The XT-DS De-Esser uses proprietary processing to recognize voiced sibilance, so it can naturally de-ess your tracks. Finally, the XT-VC Vocal Character plug-in offers an innovative new way to adjust the character of your vocal recordings. It uses proprietary technology to track the pitch of the input signal, and applies EQ based on the note played.

Mixbus Sounds Better

Other DAW mixers are designed by companies with experience in computer sound, but no pedigree in world-class recording facilities. The Mixbus mixer is designed by Harrison: the maker of consoles used in the world's most demanding music, film, and live performance facilities. Harrison consoles are known for their great-sounding EQ, filters, dynamics, and bus summing. If you find a music recording from the golden age of albums - the 70s and 80s - that has stood the test of time, it is likely that a Harrison console was used during the production. With the Harrison sound and a logical knob-per-function mixer interface, Mixbus invites you to produce recordings that will stand with the best.

Mixbus is Open

Mixbus is largely open-source and is the collaborative effort of a worldwide team including musicians, programmers, and professional recording engineers. Many workstations provide "open" control or plugin protocols...Mixbus goes far beyond that. Like a good piece of vintage hardware, you can open the box and look inside. This transparency encourages Mixbus development to happen with integrity. We spend our time on the issues that users want and need; not just items that look good in an advertisement. In the crazy world of DAW software, it is nice to know that a sane option exists for your business or personal use.

Mixbus is Ultra-Compatible

Mixbus works on the three most popular desktop operating systems (OSX, Windows, and Linux), and uses industry standard I/O and plug-in formats (VST, AU). Users can easily collaborate with one another, regardless of which system they use.

Mixbus Features

  • Straightforward “knob per function” mixer layout based on Harrison's renowned 32-series and MR-series music consoles.
  • DSP sounds based on Harrison's world-renowned analog and digital mixing console experience.
  • Precision algorithms for EQ, Filter, Compression, Analog Tape Saturation, and Summing.
  • Unlimited stereo or mono input channels, each with unlimited plugins, sends, and hardware inserts. (limited only by CPU speed).
  • Phase, Input trim, High-pass Filter, Sweepable 3-band EQ, Compression, and 8 Mix Bus sends on every track.
  • 8 Stereo Mix Buses featuring Tone controls, Compression, Sidechaining, and Analog Tape Saturation.
  • Stereo Master Bus that features Tone controls, Analog Tape Saturation, K-meter, Stereo Correlation Meter, and Limiter.
  • Automatic plugin 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 features via the Ardour Digital Audio Workstation, refined by Harrison engineers to be smooth and stable.
  • Industry standard plugin support: Mixbus loads VST plugins on Windows, AudioUnit plugins on OSX, and LV2 plugins on all platforms.
  • Industry standard audio I/O support: Mixbus uses ASIO/Directsound on Windows, CoreAudio on OSX, and JACK on Linux.

New Mixing Features in Mixbus v2

The mixer in Harrison Mixbus has been streamlined based on comments from our users. There are certain mixing tasks which are performed dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of times each day. Mixbus provides these features directly under the user's control without a moment's delay, just like our hardware consoles.

For example, the fader area contains the input trim, fader level, compressor threshold (with meter), and compressor makeup gain. This provides the most-used functions within a very small "mouse travel" distance. Compare this to other DAWs which require juggling multiple windows, popups, and menus simply to navigate these most fundamental mixing features!

Metering is another aspect of DAW design that can make mixing more fluid.

In the mixing window, Mixbus provides the channel meter, compressor gain reduction meter, tape saturation meters, peak limiting meter, K-14 average level meter, and a final peak limiting meter simultaneously. Again, compare this to other designs which require plugins from several manufacturers and several windows to find this important information. Mixbus provides it at your fingertips!

New Editing Features in Mixbus v2

Similarly, the editing model in Mixbus 2 has been highly refined based on our user's feedback, as well as the "best practices" found in other workstations.

"Smart" mode combines the features of timeline-based editing and object-based editing depending on the location of the mouse within the track.

Mixbus allows the user to quickly "swipe" across the waveform and drag the gain level up or down.

By reducing this very common task to a minimum of operations, editing in Mixbus becomes a real joy for professionals who have to work quickly.

CPU usage June 3, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Fort Worth, TX United States  
So far, with Jack & Mixbus loaded & running, I have minimal CPU usage using a late 2013 Imac 27". The previous users post about 200% CPU usage may just be a matter of using an old mac. If so, one can't fault the software.

Not quite... May 15, 2014
Reviewer: SN from Canada  
Unfortunate that this DAW relies on Jack.  Mixbus itself is nice, but Jack hogged my system (200% CPU) and wouldn't release it.   It may work fine on PC or Linux, but certainly not on my Mac.  Glad I only paid $20...
