Harrison is proud to announce the availability of the FREE v2.4 update for Mixbus. This update brings numerous fixes, as well as a new addition to Harrison’s XT series for Mixbus: the XT-BC Bass Character plug-in. Mixbus users can purchase a license ($109) from the Harrison Mixbus store. Mixbus subscribers received this plug-in for free.
XT-BC Bass Character
This plugin is an innovative new equalizer from Harrison’s R&D department. It is designed to musically alter the tonality and character of bass instruments such as electric bass, stand-up bass, and synth bass. Unlike a traditional EQ, the XT-BC is “frequency-agile,” meaning that it tracks the pitch of the sound, and applies EQ specifically to the note’s fundamental or overtones.
The XT-BC can be used to beef up a thin recording, subtly change the tonality of an instrument, or attenuate the fundamental of a bloated bass track that is overshadowing other instruments in the low end of a mix. For more information, watch the introduction video below.
This new plug-in is compatible with Mixbus v2.4. Current customers received a link to download the program update via e-mail. For detailed information about Mixbus, please visit the Mixbus website.
Mixbus can be purchased for $149; or, customers can purchase a “subscription” for $49, plus a recurring fee of $9 per month. The subscription provides ongoing benefits (including at least 50% off new plug-ins) and fosters continued development for Mixbus and the Ardour open-source workstation platform. Subscribers received a free copy of the XT-BC Bass Character plug-in. The v2.4 update email also provided a coupon allowing existing customers to switch to a subscription without the initial $49 payment.
