High Performance Design – The 32Classic incorporates key high quality design criteria. Double sided PCB’s, manual PCB layout techniques providing specific trace placement and robust ground plane design, gold plated switches, conductive plastic potentiometers, and summing buses carried via PCB’s (no ribbon cable summing buses) all combine to provide the highest performance possible in analog console design.
Mono Mic/Line Channels – 32 Mono Mic/Line Channels are included in each standard configuration (custom configurations available upon request) offering a high-performance Harrison mic-preamplifier, and Harrison's acclaimed 32C four band parametric EQ with variable HP and LP filters.
DAW Compatible Frame - The 32Classic frame design is rugged and unique. It is specifically designed to solve some of the more basic yet troubling ergonomic issues in today’s studio environment. “Where do I put my keyboard and mouse or trackball?” and “Where do I put my computer monitor/s?” The 32Classic solves those issues by providing a 2-tiered front bolster which is wide and deep enough to comfortably locate your DAW keyboard and mouse/trackball (with sufficient cable access), along with your cell phone, laptop, tablet etc. A generous “rear shelf” design is provided that is ideal for locating various TFT monitor/s and/or small near-field speakers.
Configurations - The 32Classic is available in 2 configurations featuring 32 and 48 channel configurations. Custom configurations are available upon request.
In this video, journalist Frank Wells and President of Harrison Audio Gary Thielman talk about the amazing history of Harrison, from its roots in Music City and the creation of the in-line console to the launch of the 32Classic console and how it represents the beginning of a new era of Harrison production tools.
The 32Classic provides a flexible busing and routing architecture. Each channel can route to any of 8 Bus master channels that can be used in mono or stereo configuration, any of 5 Auxiliary buses (4 mono and 1 stereo) or directly to the Main Mix stereo bus with transformers. The 32Classic also incorporates an "In-Line" record status mode which allows the input source signal to feed directly to a DAW with a separate "Playback" path for monitoring and for feeding headphones and/or studio monitors via a flexible alternate output matrix. All external routing is accomplished via Harrison's large format Dante / AD DA interface system included with the 32Classic console making recording, patching and studio routing a breeze.
The classic Harrison sound is at the heart of the 32Classic console. Whether it’s the surgical yet smooth EQ, Jensen JT-MB-CPCA input transformers used throughout, or the vintage VU meters, the 32Classic sets the vibe of the session and allows you to go back to the golden era.
The 32Classic is a modern studio console that comes equipped with Atmos Monitoring and DANTE / Converters. You can work with immersive projects in any format with the Atmos A 12 wide monitor section, which supports Atmos 7.1.4 for music. The 32Classic also has built-in DANTE AD and DA converters and a full DANTE digital interface. The integrated convertors and Dante interface offer seamless recording, patching, and routing within the studio system.
