Why Harrison Mixbus?
With dozens of DAWs to choose from, there's only one that's designed to work like a Harrison: with an analog paradigm that embodies form, function, and sound. MIXBUS is the first full-featured DAW with true analog style mixing. Where other DAWs use a computer paradigm, MIXBUS grows from Harrison's distinguished 40-year heritage of platinum records such as:
Michael Jackson "Bad" and "Thriller"
Janet Jackson "Rhythm Nation"
Queen "The Game"
Sade "Sweetest Taboo"
Paul Simon "Graceland"
Supertramp "Breakfast in America"
And many more by Phoenix, Led Zeppelin, ABBA, U2, Madonna, Mike Oldfield, and Frank Zappa.
Mixbus is The Fastest Growing DAW in The Industry!
Mixbus users often ask: "How can a full-featured DAW be so inexpensive?"
We want as many people as possible to experience Harrison's Mixbus for themselves; and to become long term Mixbus users; so we are offering this version at an incredible value.
What Makes Harrison Unique?
Harrison Trion Console
In the 80's, Harrison developed fully automated, digitally-controlled analog mixer technology which was adopted by premiere film-mixing facilities. When the digital revolution came, we were asked to convert the analog "processor" into a digital processor, while leaving the control surface unchanged. This experience has provided us with techniques and proprietary technology that we have incorporated into all of our high-end mixers. Mixbus gives us an opportunity to share this technology with a much wider range of users.
Mixbus Sounds Better
If you find a music recording from the golden age of albums - the 70s and 80s - that has stood the test of time, it is likely that a Harrison console was used during the production.
More recently, Harrison has been the leader of the high-end film mixing industry. You'll hear the Harrison sound on iconic action movies like Spider-Man, Transformers, and Pearl Harbor.
The Mixbus DSP mixer is designed by the same engineers who developed those high-end consoles. Mixbus is specifically optimized to provide great-sounding EQ, filters, dynamics, and bus summing - all at an incredible value.
We've been developing consoles for over 40 years now. Multiple subtle design decisions, accumulated over a long history, allows Mixbus mixes to sound better than other DAWs.
Mixbus is Ultra-Compatible
Mixbus works on nearly any desktop computer: Windows, Mac, or Linux.
Mixbus works on the 3 most popular desktop operating systems and loads industry standard I/O and plug-in formats. Do you collaborate with other Mixbus users? A session from a collaborator using Harrison plug-ins will playback as originally intended, including full performance of all the Harrison plug-in information, even if you have not purchased those specific Harrison plug-ins yourself. Sessions can be shared among Windows, Mac and Linux users.
Analog Console Feel
The original Harrison 32Series console, circa 1975.
Engineers have been mixing on hardware consoles for more than 80 years because that's what works. Need to make a change? Grab a knob and change it. We believe that mixing inside a DAW should be no different and as easy to use as a hardware console. So we make the mixer portion of Mixbus work just like a hardware console, applying precision & proprietary algorithms to provide Harrison's great sounding EQ, Filters, and Dynamics on every channel without the need for additional plug-ins. Mixbus also provides 8 stereo aux mix busses, a stereo master bus with analog tape saturation simulation, a monitor section, and precision summing, all based on Harrison's world-renowned large format analog and digital consoles.
Powerful Editing Features
The Mixbus "editor" window allows you to cut, copy, trim, and arrange your songs with a wide range of tools.
The editing model in Mixbus has been highly refined based on our user's feedback, as well as industry standard "best practices", and includes one of the most powerful and versatile editing suites of any DAW available.

It's a simple and quick process to export your audio files from your current DAW to Mixbus and use the exceptional Mixbus "True Analog Mixing Engine" for your final mix. There's no need to change your current workflow: just add convenience, ease, and sound quality by doing all your final mixing in Mixbus.
