Harrison Mixbus is a digital audio workstation (DAW) which can record, edit, play, and mix multiple tracks of mono and stereo audio. Mixbus is based on the Ardour DAW but is sold and marketed commercially by Harrison Audio Consoles. Mixbus is a combination of the modern DAW editing model, with the addition of a "traditional" analog mixing workflow.
