Have a look at Ardour Win/Lin/Mac https://community.ardour.org/download
Harrison MixBus uses the Ardour source http://www.harrisonconsoles.com/site/mixbus.html
What would be easier modifying Ardour source to work with Win bbw2.exe and a Mac bbw2.app as Realband does or reprogram RealBand to Win Mac 32/64 or leave it as it is or ReWire (in progress) and/or a VST that uses Win bbw2.exe and a Mac bbw2.app ???

This might not be a bad idea after all, this way the Mac users will get a 64 bit Realband. But I know it would be a pain in the @$# after all the writing that went into RealBand.

I had Harrison Mixbus several years ago when it first came out and honestly I don't remember my specific reasons - been awhile - but I do remember not liking using Ardour. Maybe it's better now.

I've been using Mixbus for several years now.
At first it was kind of off and on, but for the last two years, it has continually improved to the point that I don't use anything else.

The main thing that got me was the sound. It colors the sound pretty much the same as a Harrison Console would.
I took audio from Reaper and from Samplitude 10, and loaded it into Mixbus with no processing of any kind and was blown away.
Could you get the same sound with plug-ins? Probably, if you have the skill and the time, and the right plug-ins.

I render Real Tracks from Real Band and load them into Mixbus and they sound great.

Thanks for that, I got Mixbus some time back when it was half price or less I think ? but haven't really tried it out so I will have to do that soon.

Found it, Larry put me on to it DontCrack offers Harrrison Mixbus @ $19.99 $79

Been using it since it was beta off and on over the years, and flat out hated Ardour because it felt so ProTool-ish, but LOVE the sound of Mixbus layer on top of it, so I also just run my Stems thru it at the end of a mix and leave it at that.

With V5 I can finally work with it without hating it, but personally I don't see me using it only for mixing....tho the Harrison plugins flat out rock.....

**sigh** LOL!

Yes you're right it sounds great without touching a thing.
That could be the new RealBand.
