@Kurt Foster ( and anyone else who may be interested) Harrison has released the newest version of MixBus - version 3.0 Price: $40 ( U.S.) This newer version has full MIDI production, improved editing functions, and accepts a wider scope of VST's, VSTi's, as well as AU on OSx systems. Available for both 32 and 64 bit systems. For more info and downloads: http://harrisonconsoles.com/site/mixbus.html I have V 2, and while I don't use it everyday, I do use it. I'd say it's probably the best $34 I ever spent on anything recording-related. The platform has a very analog "feel" to it. Similar to working on a Harrison desk, with "knob-per-fuction" features, inlcuding HPF, EQ, Bus Sends, etc.. The mixer section also includes the dynamics controls per channel that made Harrison a very popular console choice throughout the 70's and 80's. Along with tape saturation ( emulated) on the buses and Master Bus, the sonic signature to this platform is very warm and reminiscent of "that" sound that so many are searching for. If transparency is what you are after, you'd probably be better off with another DAW, but for those who like that smooth analog "smear", this is your ticket. You can also create unlimited tracks, in both Mono and Stereo ( Hey, Avid... how's that particular feature been going for you? LOL). Industry standard audio I/O support: Mixbus uses ASIO/Directsound on Windows, CoreAudio on OSX, and JACK on Linux. Total for the upgrade is $40. You're getting quite a bit of bang for your buck with this one. Here's a link to various "how to" videos for MixBus: http://harrisonconsoles.com/site/mixbus-info.html FWIW -d.
