It's not like having a channel strip plugin and a stereo bus plugin, (like VCC for example) it's about the whole signal path handling.
You know when Cubase/logic/Protools release new versions, you often see the phrase "improved audio engine" or similar ?
Now that is the bit Harrison does really, really well. It's not just adding all the 0s and 1s together.
It's about all the many ways that might be done, and the number of years they have been doing just that.
They make very serious consoles.
The knowledge from the MPC5 console is there inside Mixbus and I think that is the part that makes Mixbus sound different.
Other DAWs are much better for chopping up audio into little bits and moving them around on a screen though !
And if you read Harrison's blurb, that's exactly what they suggest you do.
