Legendary console manufacturer and software developer Harrison Audio has announced the debut of its 32Classic Mixing Console, a 32-channel in-line/split-recording console. Featuring a beautiful analogue tone, flexible workflows and hybrid studio functionality, the 32Classic is a ‘purist’ console with modern, premium features. Harrison Audio is now a part of Solid State Logic following its acquisition in April 2023. The new 32Classic is designed and engineered by Harrison Audio in Nashville, Tennessee, and manufactured in Oxford, England.

With a hybrid modular design and premium componentry throughout, the 32Classic is able to accommodate a variety of ‘traditional’ and modern ‘hybrid’ workflows. Its 32 mono mic/line channels, classic 32C four-band parametric EQ with variable high-pass and low-pass filters and other built-in modern features — such as 64 channels of high-end AD/DA conversion and a Dante AoIP interface — make the 32Classic an integral part of a modern mixing environment or a classic tracking room.

With its transformer-coupled mic preamp design, super-smooth and musical EQ’s, legendary filters, and premium circuitry, the 32Classic is sure to inspire confidence among sonic purists. Its end-to-end premium design features gold-plated switches, conductive plastic potentiometers, and summing buses carried by PCB’s. All of these elements and more deliver a console which is at the pinnacle of sonic performance. The 32Classic creates the vibe to inspire artists and the confidence for producers and engineers to excel.

“The 32Classic has been designed from the ground up to include the sound and features that Harrison consoles are known for, set in a modular design that accommodates modern workflows,” commented Gary Thielman, President, Harrison Audio LLC. “With the launch of our 32Classic, we are excited to begin a new journey with Harrison Audio.”

Over the past 50 years, Harrison production tools have helped world-renowned artists create some of the most recognized and celebrated music in history. The 32Classic takes their legacy in analog console design and combines it with modern studio integration, giving artists, producers and engineers the tools needed to record and mix music which stands the test of time.
