Event Description

A hands-on evening with Harrison's new products:  the 4-era 8-channel "Lineage" mic preamp; the 950m Console; and MixbusHarrison's new DAW.

Harrison's rich legacy in the music industry began in the 1970's during a critical time in the development of music recording.  For the next 2 decades, the all-important Album was the focus of a group's artistic expression.  ABBA produced all their hits on their Harrison console at Polar Studios.  Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and "Bad" albums were both mixed on a Harrison 32c console by Bruce Swedien.  Janet Jackson's "Rhythm Nation" was mixed on a SeriesTen,  And Sade's album Promise (including the track "Sweetest Taboo") was recorded on a Series24 and mixed on an MR3.  Paul Simon's "Graceland"  was mixed on a Harrison console at Ovation.  The acapella introduction to Kansas' "Carry On My Wayward Son" was recorded from Harrison console preamps directly to tape.  Dozens of hits by Queen, Led Zeppelin, and others owe their sound to Harrison consoles and the engineers who used them.  At a time when the recording was as important as the music itself, Harrison consoles were used to springboard major artist's creativity.

Join us at the Harrison factory to share anecdotes with engineers who cut their teeth on Harrison consoles; talk with Harrison's analog designers about their experience in the early days of mixing consoles; and discuss current trends in audio products with our software developers.

This hands-on event will feature Harrison's new contributions to the music recording industry:  The 950m console is a modern take on the traditional analog recording console.  The Lineage mic preamp provides 4 pairs of Harrison console preamps: a pair of each from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and today... all combined in a single box!  And Mixbus combines Harrison analog and digital expertise into a cost-effective package for music recording, editing, and mixdown.  The 950m and Lineage hardware will be available for demonstrations all evening.  Mixbus presentations will run every 30 minutes.

Save the date on your calendar!  This is an event that you don't want to miss!

All's well in the end, although hanging by the phone was the right thing to do. I'd love to hear some impressions of the Lineage pres, that was my main interest in attending the event, as I'm looking to expand the front end of my signal chain this coming year.

I plan to add the pre-amps to my rack as soon as possible Jon. They have 70dB of gain which is just what I need for my ribbon mics and having the varied coloration of the vintage pre's is just great. List price is around $2900 for 8 channels but I think street price is probably more around $2500. A great deal for such high quality pres. Pepper Denny is the dealer for them here in town at VintageKing.
