I recommend to at least try the (slightly limited) free demo. The mixer 
section is unparalleled in DAW land.

Harrison often run sales and the basic version of Mixbus can sometimes 
be had for maybe $49 or even less (subscribe to their email when you get 
the demo to be notified of special sales).

Mixbus 32C is an advanced version which is rather more pricey but 
nevertheless I don't regret buying it.
