Mixbus : Ardour + Harrison DSP for OS X: - http://www.harrisonconsoles.com/joomla/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=108&Itemid=42

Harrison, the manufacturer of world-class analog and digital consoles, along with Paul Davis, lead developer of Ardour are proud to announce Mixbus®, a customized version of Ardour for OS X.

Mixbus enhances Ardour by providing critical mixing functions in a knob-per-function interface called "True Analog Mixing"(tm).
