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.

Waves Dugan Automixer

Waves has announced Dugan Automixer, a plugin that allows automatic cueing of multiple live microphones in real time.

It maintains a consistent system gain, even when multiple speakers are talking simultaneously, and makes perfectly matched crossfades, without any signal compression, and without a noise gate that may cause unwanted sonic artifacts.

Available for virtually any console, the Dugan Automixer is the ultimate solution for broadcast news panels, talk shows, houses of worship, film and television dialog recording, and any other discussion panel or conference scenario involving multiple microphones and participants.

Waves releases Scheps 73 equalizer plugin

Waves Scheps 73

Waves has launched Scheps 73, an equalizer effect plugin based on the Neve 1073 equalizer and mic preamp.

Developed in association with world-renowned mixing engineer Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele, Black Sabbath, Lana Del Ray, Jay-Z), the Scheps 73 plugin is a colorful 3-Band EQ modeled on the classic 1073 console’s EQ and mic preamp module.

Empowered by Waves cutting-edge technologies, the Scheps 73 EQ features interrelated bands that adhere to the 1073’s original specs and precisely emulate its behavior: a fixed 12kHz high-frequency band, switchable low and midrange bands with cut and boost controls, and an 18dB/octave high-pass filter. Additionally, for the first time ever, a little-known 10kHz midrange band discovered in the original 1073 schematics but operable only on the rare 1078 channel strip has been modeled and incorporated into the plugin. And to top it all off, the Waves MS matrix has been added to let you apply different equalization to mid and side stereo content.

Using innovative procedures to model the acclaimed Marinair transformer, Waves has meticulously captured all the sonic characteristics of the 1073, including its harmonic distortion. These overtones were tweaked to perfection by Andrew Scheps himself, resulting in beautiful and authentic saturations.

The Scheps 73 is currently on sale for $99 USD in Native formats (regular $149 USD). It is also available for Soundgrid, priced at $225 USD.
