As you probably know, I don’t particularly care for mixing on a computer. But I’m a realist, and I’ll be the first to admit that it is nice to have much of the capability of my old recording studio sitting in my laptop.
I’m also a particular fan on the Harrison MixBus DAW. It’s the closest thing available to working “old school” that I’ve been able to find, it’s flexible, VERY powerful, intuitive to use, and sounds great. And since everybody else uses ProTools, it gives me a bit of a competitive edge… plus it’s a little bit harder for someone to steal my settings.
That’s why I was pleased to see that MixBus has been nominated for a TEC award this year. Anyone who is professionally involved in the audio industry is eligible to vote. Registration is free, you can vote online here.
*Full disclosure… I’m not connected to Harrison in any way, other than I like using their gear.
