Harrison Consoles updates Mixbus and Mixbus32C to v4.1


Harrison Consoles has updated Mixbus and Mixbus32C to version 4.1.

New Features:

  • Template Manger (contributed by open-source developer Johannes Mueller).
  • VCA fader automation.


  • Allow listening to master output during realtime export.
  • Allow selection of automation lanes, so you can paste into them.
  • Add 176.4kHz rate to export dialog.
  • Enable the Non-layered button work for MIDI recording. When a new MIDI region is recorded, it will trim the underlying regions so there is nothing below the new region.
  • Various improvements to "touch" automation.
  • Various improvements to zooming & scrolling in the editor.
  • Improvements to the "Summary" at the bottom of the editor.
  • The "Summary" now operates more like a horizontal conventional scrollbar.
  • When instantiation a Track from a "template", use the template name for the new track; not the name of the original track used to created the template.
  • When plugins are copy/pasted or drag&dropped from one channel to another, retain their order.
  • Make VCA mute+solo buttons bindable to MIDI controllers.
  • Further speed-up the rendering of waveforms by using multiple drawing threads.
  • When creating a snapshot, a copy of every MIDI source file should be created (so a destructive change in one MIDI file doesn't propagate into other snapshots).
  • Prevent the storage of redundant Fader+Trim Automation in session files (reduces size of session files).
  • Don't de-select tracks when the track order changes.
  • The option for adding "at the top", in the Add Track/Bus dialog, didn't work. This has been fixed.
  • Fixed a bug with external sync which sometimes caused the playhead to jump back & forth between 2 different positions.
  • Fix fader level operation when channels are grouped together AND attached to a VCA.
  • Allow the New Track dialog to stay open after you add a track, so you can add more tracks & templates.
  • Make "Import" the default action in the Import Dialog (Double clicking on a file or pressing the Return key will now import it, instead of auditioning it). You can still manually audition the file with spacebar, as before.
  • "Cut" buffer should not change the selection. Fixes range mode selection/cut/copy that would previously clear track selection.
  • If actively recording, prevent interaction between mouse and audio clock widget (s) which could stop recording by triggering a "locate".
  • Support note-name editing in MIDI list editor.
  • Loading a read-only Session, then making a copy with "Save As and switch" was not allowing the new Session to be saved, as writable state was not updated. This has been fixed.
  • Right-click on marker, "loop range" was not setting the loop range. This has been fixed.
  • Monitor-section state (show/hide, attached/detached) was not recalled after close/re-open. This has been fixed.
  • Limit clock displays to 30 days (720 hours).
  • When in smart-mode, don't switch to range-mode after "set range selection".
  • Updated German, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, and Czech translations.
  • Several Tempo-mapping & tap-tempo improvements.
  • Control Surfaces:
  • Many, many improvements to OSC remote-control protocol (contributed by Len Ovens).
  • Watch for some cool new tablet control options coming soon.
  • Allow control-surfaces to enable the EQ/Comp when a knob is moved. (in-on-change).
  • Set Display Name for OS X/macOS (fixes EuCon surfaces on OS X 11, 12).
  • MIDI learn on ctrl + middle-click only (not ctrl + other mods + btn2).
  • Allow scripts and surfaces to change a route's Color.
  • MIDI map for Alesis QX25 (Len Ovens).
  • Many Mackie MCU protocol improvements.
  • Many Faderport8 improvements.

MacOS Fixes:

  • When in fullscreen mode, on 10.11 and 10.12, sometimes regions would not update without a zoom or scroll operation to trigger a re-draw. This has been fixed.

Windows Fixes:

  • Some 32-bit .wav files from Zoom recorders (and maybe other sources) would not import successfully. This has been fixed.
