Mixbus – Bringing Console Style Mixing to the DAW!

Welcome to Mixbus! Mixbus is an “analog-style console” that has been incorporated into a Digital Audio Workstation. The Mixbus engine was developed at Harrison Consoles, where we have been designing high-end digital and analog consoles for over 40 years.

Many great-sounding, influential, and legendary works were recorded and/or mixed on Harrison consoles, including:

  • Michael Jackson “Bad” and “Thriller” (the best-selling album of all time).
  • AC/DC “Back in Black”
  • Janet Jackson “Rhythm Nation”
  • Queen “The Game”
  • Sade “Diamond Life” including the hit single “Smooth Operator”
  • Paul Simon “Graceland”
  • Supertramp “Breakfast in America”
  • many, many recordings on Manfred Eicher’s ECM Records
  • much more by artists such as Led Zeppelin, ABBA, U2, Madonna, Mike Oldfield, and Frank Zappa.

Harrison continues to be a major force in the ultra-high-end professional audio community. World-class facilities like Sony Pictures use Harrison consoles to mix top-tier films.

Mixbus is not a tool for beginners. Although we strive to make Mixbus easy-to-use, digital audio editing and mixing is a very complex topic. This document assumes that you are already comfortable with typical Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) conventions. Additional online resources are available from the Mixbus “Help” menu and at:

It's an analog console, which is right up my alley. Obviously, you gain stage everything BEFORE you start recording ANYTHING, but this DAW is gonna be what I dump my tracks from FL into for traditional old-school mixdown & mastering...and I can still use UAD & Console 1mk2 in it.
