I had a Harrison Console in a Studio I owned . . oh . . a FEW years ago.
Harrison was one of the Kings of Film Mixing for ages. And for good reason.
I say “was” because I believe they have experienced a bit of increased competition over the last few years - not least of which is from Avid.
But given Yamaha/Steinberg’s obvious desire to slowly and methodically squeeze their way into that market - that’s the obvious motivation. Yamaha has Unlimited Resources and Steinberg has Post Software and Harrison has a World Class Track Record in Post. A Great Team.
And whatever the fruit of that partnership - hardware, software changes, etc - I’m sure it will be more aimed at that market because that’s where Harrison is a Titan.
I doubt it will be in the Composer/Small Studio/Prosumer (Cubase) market.
I could be wrong.
