Harrison Consoles, manufacturer of the world's finest mixing consoles, 
is proud to announce that Mixbus is now available for the Linux platform.

Mixbus(tm) extends Ardour ( the well-known Digital Audio Workstation ) 
with Harrison's world-renowned sound and features in a knob-per-function 
interface. Now cross-platform on both Linux and OSX, Mixbus provides a 
solution for engineers and mixers who need a recorder, editor and mixing 
system with world-class sound and features.


Mixbus Features:

* 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 c 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.

* Automatic delay compensation for any routing combinations of Tracks to 
Mixbuses and/or Master Bus. This allows for parallel paths with 
different plugins that remain time-aligned to the output.

* 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.

* Uses any sound I/O supported by ALSA and/or JACK on Linux
* Supports LADSPA and LV2 plugins on Linux


The development of Mixbus is the culmination of a multi-year 
collaboration between Harrison and the Ardour development team.

Mixbus is available at an introductory price of only $79. Purchase 
Mixbus now at: http://mixbus.harrisonconsoles.com

Purchasers of Mixbus are also able to take advantage of a LinuxDSP 
plugin "bundle" at a dramatically reduced price. The included plugins ( 
channelstrip with gate, fully parametric EQ, multiband compressor, and 
reverb) extend Mixbus to provide a full-featured editing, mixing and 
mastering package at a great price.
