Harrison Consoles Mixbus

Harrison Consoles has announced the release of Mixbus 2.0, a progressive workstation that combines open-source development with Harrison’s 30-year heritage of building world-class mixing systems.

Mixbus provides an integrated “analog-style” mixer along with a world-class editor in a very cost-effective package. Version 2.0 represents a dramatic leap forward for mixing and editing in the box.

Changes in Mixbus 2.0

  • New Mixer Features:
    • 8 Mix Bus Sends! We doubled the mixbuses so there are enough for groups as well as FX returns. Even more of what made Mixbus special!
    • Plugin Effect Control Sliders allow you to map plugin controls directly to controls on the mixer strip. Give your plugins the Mixbus treatment!
    • Input Trim, Makeup Gain, Sidechain, and Master Limiter controls are now available directly from the mixer window.
    • Improved Mixer navigation and display, including narrow mixer strip and the ability to show/hide Mix Buses as needed.
    • New Phase-Correlation meter on the Master Bus displays mono compatibility of the stereo mix.
    • Polarity (phase) buttons on the top of every mixer strip.
    • Plugins, sends, inserts and the fader now appear in a single redirect box at the top of the mixer strip. This allows easier signal reordering and allows more space for Mixbus controls.
  • Editor Improvements:
    • New, improved Crossfade, Layering, and Automation editing.
    • “Smart Object” Mode : Allows a combination of object and range mode.
    • Ripple Editing mode : Greatly speeds up the process of spoken-word and radio edits.
    • Regions are transparent while being dragged, but switch to opaque when you drop them in place. Line up transients on overdubs with ease!
  • Other Improvements:
    • New, better documentation and easier installation.
    • More keybindings such as mute/solo/record for selected tracks. Keyboard power-users never have to touch the mouse for recording & editing.
    • Taller, higher-contrast faders on the mixer strips.
    • Many user-suggested menu tweaks which make the most-used functions easier to find.
    • Range-selection behavior now allows you to drag down across multiple tracks at once – while also supporting edit groups.
    • Realtime automation recording is much more robust; you can even record automation while looping!
    • Automation and Region Gain Line editing is much faster. You can now grab a range of time and drag the automation line for quick level rides.

Mixbus 2.0 is available to purchase for Mac and Linux (Windows under development) for $219 USD.

Phoenixinflight updates ThrillerEQ to v1.3

Phoenixinflight ThrillerEQ

Phoenixinflight has released version 1.3 of ThrillerEQ, a free equalizer effect plug-in for Windows.

ThrillerEQ is a VST Plugin based on the GREAT RIVER HARRISON 32 EQ Equalizer. These equalizers were used in Harrison 32 Consoles, on which countless hit records were produced, including Abba, Queen and Michael Jackson. It was used by Bruce Swedien in the recording and mixing of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, the best-selling album of all time! Since ThrillerEQ does not exactly reproduces every detail of its hardware counterpart (non-linearities, harmonics etc.), it is not an exact emulation. However, this plugin features EQ parameters which are very close to the original device.

Changes in ThrillerEQ v1.3

  • Switchable filter characteristics on the high and low ranges (shelving or peaking).
  • Additional output section includes a level control knob, a brickwall limiter and a phase inversion switch.
  • ThrillerEQ Classic, an alternate version without output section, is also included.
  • New set of presets.
  • CPU performance has been improved.

ThrillerEQ is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

Harrison consoles are known for their great-sounding EQ, filters, dynamics, and bus summing on every track. Now Mixbus offers every engineer a real Harrison music console “in the box”. With Mixbus’s logical knob-per-function interface, the user works with the fluidity of a traditional analog recording studio while retaining the convenience of a DAW. Mixbus enables the user to record, edit, and mix a musical performance “in the box” but get a sound that harkens back to the golden age of album recordings.

  • Straightforward “knob per function” mixer layout based on Harrison’s renowned 32-series and MR-series music consoles.
  • Precision DSP algorithms for EQ, Filter, Compression, Analog Tape Saturation, and Summing based on Harrison’s world-renowned large format analog and digital mixing consoles.
  • Unlimited stereo or mono input channels (based on available CPU power) featuring High-pass Filter, EQ, Compression, and 4 Mix Bus sends on every channel.
  • 4 Stereo Mix Buses (can be used for groups or auxes) featuring Tone controls, Compression, Sidechaining, and Analog Tape Saturation.
  • Stereo Master Bus that features Tone controls, Analog Tape Saturation, K-meter, and Limiting to help you make polished mixes.
