Control Surface?

Any recommendations for a control surface with the 32c v7? Cheers!

Is there any important difference between v6 and v7 except the TapeX feature?
I find expensive the upgrade price for me who have support Harrison through the years by purchasing every single version for both Mixbus and Mixbus32C, for only this new feature that actually I'm not interesting to use.

@ Mubemol : since we don't use iLok or online authorization, we don't have a way to remotely disable someone's Mixbus license. For that reason, we don't allow license transfers - Ben at Harrison

@ Arionas : in addition to the new recorder page and hardware input meters (TapeX), 7.0 represents an entirely new 'build' of Mixbus32C using the latest Apple compiler and tools. That makes it more compatible with (for example) the latest Waves v12 plugins which require a more updated build system. 7.0 embodies a lot of work behind the scenes. It's an unfortunate side effect of modern computer software that we have to invest a lot of work just to 'keep up' with the OS changes.

Of course we will also continue to add features and fixes throughout the v7.x series, as we always do.

If you haven't been following along with the very latest releases of v6, then you'll see tons of improvements in v7 ... especially lots of VST3 features.

Best,
-Ben at Harrison

Thanks Ben, I understand. However as I'm using the latest v6 build and also as next week I'm gonna move on windows platform, I will wait for the implementation of new useful features and then I will upgrade.
Anyway, congrats for the new release!

Always Ben!
I respect and love the sound qualities and the workflow you brought on daw recording. It is different from other daws but it is its own thing and it is great.
I also saw that through the years, problems and instabilities became less and less.
After build my new computer I will try the demo and perhaps this new TapeX finally worth the upgrade. We'll see.

cheers!

I use it with a Behringer X-Touch and X-Touch Extender. Works pretty good! Great integration and I can basically switch off my screens and mix solely on the control surfaces.
However, on project load, the faders don't always initialize properly and I have to shuffle through a couple pages to wake them all up. From that point on, everything works perfectly. I hope that bug will be taken care of soon!

This is yet another poor excuse by Harrison to not give customers the proper support that most other companies provide. You get the same excuses for why MixBus can't do simple functions as other DAW's etc. People want to believe but this kind of excuse making (as if there's no other protection besides iLok) rather fixing their poor system just wears you down.

Oh, didn't know that! Should have researched before asking. I'll wait for some promotion since in my country now I'd pay 6 times over.

really enjoying mixbus sound and workflow!

Hello, I own Mixbus 32C v5, am I missing out on anything important if I don't upgrade to v7? I mostly attempt mixing on Mixbus, importing stems from Studio One, but usually end up just mixing in Studio One. The upgrade price is +80€ for me, almost as much as I paid for the program in the first place. I'm kind of broke so I won't upgrade for that price. Any improvements on sound, mixing, etc?

I'd at least upgrade to v6 as it's more stable than 5, if you care to continue using Mixbus32c, that is.

The DAW is still the DAW that it has been, but more stable, more efficient, with more workflow improvements and enhancements.

But if v7 is out, I can't choose to upgrade to v6! Or can I? :O

You must pay for major updates (5 to 6, 6 to 7 etc). It makes no sense to upgrade from 5 to 6 if you need to pay for this. And 7 seems to be more optimized and you will have a year of free updates too till the 8 version comes.

Then I will probably upgrade when they release v10 o v11, if they are releasing a new version every year. I love the virtual mixing console but as a DAW it's a bit crazy to use.

I use regular Mixbus, not 32C, so my upgrade price was $19. I can handle that pretty easily.

One of things I love the most about MB is the customization options; there are so many that it is difficult to imagine using them all. I have made my own cool looking theme/skin for the mixing and edit pages, and programming in hotkey shortcuts is an absolute breeze

If I remember correctly there was a new feature implemented in v6 called "delay compensation everywhere" meaning all aux-tracks were delay-compensated, not just mixbusses. If you don't need it then you don't miss anything important mix-wise by not upgrading.
Another new very cool feature is the loudness Maximizer on Master channel which automatically sets your exported audio to most loudness standards such as CD, Itunes, YouTube, EBU etc. This is very handy.

As a guy who tracks and edits in Reaper and then mixes in Mixbus, this would be sooo great!
But I guess it's not so simple to make it happen

Simple no... But not impossible
Mixbuss sound is UNDENIABLE... As a Reaper user I'm borderline jealous lol

I want to love and use Mixbuss. Even bought V6. But every time I try it I hit a wall, curse for like 5 minutes and head back to Reaper. Little things like selecting several tracks and lover the volume 1dB is a monumental task.

Harrison if you are listening: Consider what I proposed.

We all know what a great workflow it has, my question is the sound. In Cubase if you add a UAD Studer plug in on every track and you use mostly third part plug ins, will the Mixbus still have a different sound over Cubase.

Short answer is Yes, it would...

The tape analog saturation AFAIK is only on the bus groups. In the channels you have the channel strip with its own magic. I think a better comparison would be inserting a channel strip in every channel plus Studer or another tape in the bus Aux's + on the master. Mixbus tape saturation will sound different than studer though. The thing about mixbus is that it sounds very very good and the workflow is easy

It won’t sound the same as the Studer plugin, but even without processing Mixbus sounds better because many workstations have internal problems which include internal clipping, lacking dither stages in the DSP processing, insufficient ramping of DSP coefficients, multiple bit-depth/format conversions, out-of-control gain stages causing plugins to work outside their intended range, routing choices that cause latency/timing errors. Mixbus doesn’t have these errors and sounds more like a clean analog console, which is what it is modelled on.

We will have some more variants in the future ... likely including a straightforward channelstrip. I'm glad to hear that you are interested in that!

Hello.

was wondering if a straight forward channel strip is still on the cards
