The 950m is a new breed of workhorse analog console. The 950m incorporates nearly 40 years of analog innovations and refinement starting with the 32-Series in 1975 and continuing through the 80s, 90s, and into the 2000's. The feature set of the 950m is geared to meet the unique requirements of a DAW-based studio. It provides all the features necessary to link professionals on both sides of the control room window while delivering the “classic sound" so often sought.
The 950m's analog circuitry draws directly from Harrison’s legendary musical heritage. The new console incorporates a massive linear power supply, robust ground plane design, all balanced connections, gold-plated switches, through-hole components, and high-headroom summing busses.
- Modular design with 12, 16, and 24-channel frames standard.
- Proven, best-of-breed analog designs and high-quality parts.
- 2 Master Buses: 1 "32-Series"-style transformer-balanced output, one "Series12"-style electroncially-balanced output.
- Comprehensive communications with 2 studio feeds, talkback, oscillator, and headphone feeds.
- Ergonomic frame design accomodates DAW peripherals.
Harrison's flagship product, the MPC4-D (motion picture console) is installed at high-profile film facilities around the world. These facilities chose the MPC because of its impeccable sound quality, its multi-user features, its robustness, and its visual impact on the dub stage.
The MPC4-D has 7 dual-concentric knobs and 62 buttons for each channel strip. A TFT meter bridge provides in-depth information and a scrolling waveform above each channel. The list of blockbuster films created on this console is simply too long to recount. Find out why so many facilities trust Harrison for their high-profile projects.
The next-generation MPC is coming soon with massive processing, automation, monitoring and metering improvements
A full-featured multi-purpose console and workstation control surface, the Trion has a modest price tag but still provides all the benefits of Harrison engineering. The Trion is used in high-end TV and film post production facilities, broadcast facilities, and large scale live performance venues around the world.

Lineage 8 channel Mic Pre Amp
The Lineage 8-channel microphone preamplifier provides 8 microphone preamps, each from a different era of Harrison consoles. Each pair of preamps has their own unique character, providing the recording engineer with several options in a compact 1RU box.
The front panel provides inputs for channels 1 and 2 (with selector switches) and controls for each of the 8 mic preamps:
(2) 70-80's era mic preamps, with pad and 48V switches.
A parallel discrete input stage provides 60dB gain using a static bias scheme. This preamp has an EIN measurement at the edge of theoretical limits, and is perfect for quiet sources where noise performance is an absolute priority. Paradoxically, this same preamp provided the hard-hitting sounds of 70s rock and R&B that put Harrison on the map. A true classic.
(2) 80-90's era mic preamps, with pad and 48V switches.
This model is based on a single discrete input stage (63dB gain) using an active bias scheme. Providing slightly more gain and headroom than the 70s models, but with a similar character, this preamp is a "workhorse" design that has powered many incarnations of Harrison analog products over the years. This is an excellent low-noise, high-gain preamp that will transparently capture any source.
(2) 90-00's era mic preamps, with pad and 48V switches.
Incorporating a single discrete input stage (63dB gain) and using a passive bias scheme, these preamps also incorporate FET-compensated headroom extension. This unusual design powered some of Harrison's later digitally-controlled analog consoles, and it is highly regarded for preserving the character of individual drums, acoustic guitar, and other percussive, harmonically-rich sources that need to "cut through" a mix. This circuit also differs from the others by using a parallel electronically-balanced output which we found was needed to preserve the original's
(2) Trion mic preamps, each with pad, 48V, instrument mode, and "FIX" gain preset.
An innovative addition is the "FIX" button on each of the two Trion preamps. The "FIX" button engages a preset gain trim (user-adjustable via a trim pot). The combination of the front-panel input switching and the "FIX" buttons allow you to switch the first two preamps between one use (such as 2 calibrated overhead mics in the studio) and another ( such as a vocal chain setup) without having to re-set the input gain in-between.
Innovative features such as the "FIX" mode and switchable front panel inputs allow unusual flexibility in a microphone preamp.
The Lineage mic preamp is built in our Nashville factory and is built with selected high-quality parts to last a lifetime.
