RSPE launches Mixbus V2.5 No Brainer Deal

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news, promo on Apr 30, 2014 - comment 0 comments

RSPE Audio Solutions has teamed up with Harrison to offer Mixbus V2.5 for the “No Brainer Deal” price of only $19.95 USD.

Harrison Mixbus No Brainer Deal

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.

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.

The No Brainer Deal is available for purchase until midnight May 15th, 2014 (PDT).

Harrison 832c Filter Unit now shipping

Related: , , , Posted in news on Mar 12, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Harrison has announced that the Harrison 832c Filter Unit is now shipping.

Harrison 832c Filter Unit

From Abba to Zappa: Countless ground-breaking artists have been recorded and mixed on Harrison-designed consoles. AC/DC’s “Back in Black”, Robert Plant’s “Ship of Fools”, Sade’s “Sweetest Taboo” and Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” all feature the signature Harrison sound! The greatest selling album of all time – Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” – was recorded and mixed on a Harrison 32-series console using the very same filters featured on the new Harrison 832c Filter Unit!

The 832c features 8 channels of high / low pass filters from Harrison’s world-renowned 32c console – providing classic Harrison sound for recording and mixing in a convenient 1U rack space. Each channel features independent controls for both the high and low-pass filters, a Bump button, 2 sweepable filter knobs, and a 7-segment LED input meter.

When engaged, the “Bump” button creates a resonant boost just above the selected high-pass filter frequency – re-creating the signature low-end of the Harrison 32-series consoles. This feature keeps instruments from sounding thin when you roll off the unwanted low frequency energy. Combined with proper execution of the low-pass filter, the “Bump” feature makes the 832c the perfect tool to fatten kick drums, beef up bass lines, and add body to guitar tracks – all while helping each instrument find its place in the mix.

The audio connections are provided on AES59 (Tascam DB-25) connectors. Combined with other Harrison hardware, setup becomes painless and clutter-free, as the input connector of the 832c Filter Unit matches the output connector of the Lineage Mic Preamp. When used in tandem, the 832c Filter Unit and the Lineage Mic Preamp provide a complete Harrison 8-channel input section with preamps, filters, and metering.

The Harrison 832c Filter Unit is now available to purchase for $2,395 USD.

Harrison 950SC Sidecar & 950RR Roller Rack shipping

Related: , , Posted in news on Feb 27, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Harrison Consoles has announced the introduction of the 950 line of studio furniture – the 950SC Sidecar and 950RR Roller Rack. Both units are now shipping to pre-order customers.

Harrison Consoles 950SC Sidecar

The Harrison 950SC and 950RR were designed to match the look of the Harrison 950mx analog console, but are also well-suited for any studio requiring high-end furniture solutions.

The 950SC features a solid, heavy-duty construction using extruded aluminum framing and a powder-coated metal finish. In a studio workspace, the 950SC provides 10 rack spaces at desk-height. Harrison designs have always emphasized ergonomics – thus, the rack space has been angled 15 degrees for usability.

The 950SC features a conventional open-back design that provides ample heat dissipation and room for cables. Rails and movable inserts are provided for cable dressing. The front of the 950SC features a convenient bolster for a computer keyboard or controller, and the top panel provides space for a computer or audio monitor.

Harrison Consoles 950RR Roller Rack

The 950RR also features a solid, heavy-duty construction that includes the same extruded aluminum framing and powder-coated metal finish as the 950SC. There are 16 rack spaces available on the front of the unit. In a studio workspace, the 950RR provides easy access to each side of the unit with its solid, industrial wheels. The engineering quality of the 950RR is apparent just from getting your hands on it – something that an engineer may need to do often during a studio session.

The 950RR also features rack rails on the rear which can be used for power conditioning, lights, additional I/O, or custom panels. This is helpful if the rack needs to move from room-to-room.

The top of the 950RR includes a vent for heat dissipation – a feature that is almost always overlooked in studio furniture. Because Harrison has accommodated proper airflow, the 950RR can be filled all the way to the top without worry of overheating.

The Harrison 950SC and 950RR are now available to purchase for $1,849 USD and $1,499 USD respectively.

Harrison Consoles unveils 950mx Analog Console

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 17, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Harrison Consoles has announced the release of the 950mx, its newest analog console.

Harrison Consoles 950mx

The 950mx is intended for facilities that need an analog monitoring, mixing, and summing solution when working with a DAW. It provides large-format console sound and construction while forgoing the expensive multitrack buses and inline monitoring features that have become less necessary with modern DAW workflows. The 950mx is the perfect centerpiece for a commercial recording studio, live 2-track recording rig, or project studio.

Harrison has been building consoles since 1975, and the 950mx incorporates design elements found across a wide range of console models such as the 32 Series, MR Series (2, 3, 4, 5 and 7), SeriesTen, SeriesTwelve, MPC and LPC.

The 950mx was designed by Harrison’s most experienced analog designers who were challenged to make the best-sounding, highest-spec analog console available today. The 950mx features a robust ground plane, gold module connectors, gold-plated switches, conductive plastic knobs, and fully-differential balanced I/O at every point. The summing busses are carried via PCBs, not ribbon cables. A custom-designed linear power supply provides rock-steady voltage for clean sound, robust EQs, and generous headroom.

The 950mx is the latest model in Harrison’s 950 series consoles, introducing various user-suggested improvements. All 950mx mono input modules now feature individually switchable, sweepable high-and-low pass filters, and 3-band sweepable EQ – featuring the same circuitry as the original Harrison 32-series consoles. Mono input channels also feature switchable inserts, a mic pre (switchable to a line input), 4 aux sends, 100mm P+G faders, 2 Mix Bus assignments, and a post-fader direct output. Stereo input modules feature switchable high-and-low pass filters, 3-band tone controls, balance, channel reverse, mono-sum, input trim, 4 aux sends, 100mm P+G faders, and 2 Mix Bus assignments. Another user-requested feature was the addition of an alternate speaker output.

The mono and stereo modules of the 950m and 950mx are interchangable. 950m users can arrange to have their mono channels updated to the reflect the new features of the 950mx.

The 950mx console features 2 discrete mixbusses, each offering a different flavor at mixdown. Mix Bus 1 features a transformer-balanced output, while Mix Bus 2 is electronically-balanced. The buses can be used separately or may be summed to achieve effects like parallel compression.

The 24-module version is now available in a standalone format with optional legs. For customers with existing analog gear, Harrison has designed a matching line of studio furniture to complement the 950mx console. These pieces include a “sidecar” which provides 10 rack spaces at the desk surface, and a 16-space standalone rack. Both pieces use the same laser-cut and powder-coated aluminum framing as the 950mx – providing a professional and cohesive look for any 950mx user.
