Harrison Consoles has released version 1.2 of Mixbus, a virtual “analog console” integrated into a full-featured Digital Audio Workstation (DAW).
Mixbus “True Analog Mixing”™ provides critical mixing functions in a knob-per-function interface. “True Analog Mixing”™ is based on Harrison’s renowned 32-Series and MR-Series console designs, plus Harrison’s proprietary digital mixing technology. Mixbus™ enables you to record, edit, and mix a musical performance in-the-box while getting a sound that harkens back to the golden age of album recordings.
New in Mixbus v1.2
- Show all tracks with regions under playhead — Right-click the Track/Bus side panel, and you’ll find a new option to show all tracks with regions. Any track with a region under the playhead will be unhidden. Tracks without regions under the playhead will be hidden. This is a nice editing convenience that helps you manage large sessions.

Supported languages include English, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, Greek, Swedish, Polish, Czech, and Norwegian. (See the About page for translator credits)
