Message Board - Harrison MPC4-D Film Console

Every facet of the MPC series has been refined and incorporated into the newest, most feature-complete film console available, the MPC4-D. 7 Dual-concentric knobs per channel, rich displays, long-life switches, premium faders, and lavish center-section facilities make the MPC4-D stand head and shoulders above the competition.

The MPC4-D uses a new extruded aluminum frame with TFT waveform displays over every channel. The surface is highly configurable, with an unlimited frame width to accomodate an unlimited number of faders. The massive DSP power available on the MPC4-D is provided via Harrison's revolutionary Xrange DSP system. Many hundreds of channels are available along with Harrison's industry standard Film Monitoring system and multi-operator IKIS Automation platform. The total MPC4-D package provides limitless mixing potential for demanding users.
