Manufacturer's Description from Presonus

The small-format mixer with one-to-one control.

The StudioLive 32S is a powerful 32-channel mixer that provides the ultimate mixing experience, packing large format features into a small format chassis. Powered by the dual-core PreSonus FLEX DSP Engine, the StudioLive 32S digital mixer is equipped with 40 mixing channels, 26 mix buses, and 286 simultaneous processors—including 4 stereo reverberation systems, and Fat Channel plug-in models on every input channel and mix bus. With 128 (64x64) channels of USB recording, 128 channels of AVB network audio I/O, flexible routing options, and studio-grade audio quality, the StudioLive 32S delivers a fast and intuitive, surface-driven workflow for total control. Spend less time menu-diving and more time mixing—hands-on.

 

The scalable digital mixer.

The StudioLive 32S digital mixer and the complete PreSonus® StudioLive Series III ecosystem of AVB networking products allow you to create a system that is truly customized for your needs. Connect NSB-series stage boxes to add remote analog inputs and outputs wherever they’re required. Network with a StudioLive Series III rack mixer and add a dedicated monitor mixer. Add EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers to give your musicians their own customizable 16-channel monitor mixes. Multiple StudioLive Series III digital mixers can be networked, allowing you to route audio to and from any device on the audio network, thanks to the flexibility of Digital Patching onboard your StudioLive 32S digital mixer and in UC Surface remote mixer software.

 

The best digital mixer for recording - with or without a computer.

PreSonus Capture® recording software is an intuitive multitrack recording application with a fully integrated Virtual Soundcheck mode that runs directly on your StudioLive 32S digital mixer or on your computer running macOS® or Windows®. Record any combination of channels, FlexMixes, and the Main stereo mix via USB, to an SD Card, or both for the ultimate redundant live recording rig. StudioLive mix scenes can be stored with your recordings to speed up virtual soundchecks. Best of all, Capture sessions open natively in Studio One® with the entire StudioLive mix scene re-created in the Studio One console, complete with fader levels, Fat Channel settings, mutes, solos, and more. No other multitrack software makes recording as fast, simple, and hassle-free so you can focus on mixing the show.

 

Superior sound.

We built our reputation designing great-sounding analog circuits for critical studio recording environments, and we put all of that experience into designing the StudioLive 32S digital mixer. In 1995, PreSonus patented digital control over analog circuits with our first studio product. Building on this legacy, we created a separate digital volume-control circuit ahead of our lauded analog XMAX mic preamp design, providing the convenience of digital recall without sacrificing fidelity. This allows the StudioLive 32S mic preamps to be remote-controlled with UC Surface software or Studio One, and when you load a StudioLive 32S mixer scene, the mic preamp trim values can also be recalled along with the other settings.

 

Vintage studio processors onboard.

The dynamic Fat Channel on the StudioLive 32S digital mixer puts critical EQ and Dynamics functions beneath your fingertips while giving you fast access to every parameter. Ten included vintage EQ and classic compressor Fat Channel plug-in models can be used onboard your mixer as well as within Studio One. And when you’re ready for more signal processing options, PreSonus offers four Fat Channel plug-in collections with 15 additional models. Fat Channel plug-ins can be inserted on every input channel and output bus. Now you can enjoy extensive, studio-style processing whether recording in the studio or running shows on the road.

 

Flexible mixing without limits.

PreSonus designed the StudioLive 32S digital mixer to adapt with your changing needs, whether you’re mixing in the studio or on a busy festival stage. The 16 FlexMixes on the StudioLive 32S digital mixer can be individually configured to function as an aux bus, a subgroup, or a matrix mix. Four designated effects buses provide a total of 24 mix buses plus an independent solo bus and the main mix. We also provided 24 DCAs so you can more easily and flexibly control groups of channels. No other digital mixer provides this much flexibility.

 

Reconfigure your mix without unplugging a cable.

StudioLive Series III digital mixers incorporate the concept of an analog patchbay and digitize it. This lets you customize your mix configuration by patching any analog input or digital return (AVB, USB, or SD Card) to any channel you like. This flexible feature also allows you to freely route audio to your AVB network and record any of the inputs and FlexMixes on the 64 USB sends. Digital Patching also makes it easy to quickly route to and source from your AVB audio network when using the StudioLive 32S as part of a complete networked audio system. And with a fader for all 32 channels, plus 8 additional faders to manage your bus outputs, you always have total control of your entire mix.

Mix wirelessly using UC Surface touch-control software for macOS®, Windows, iPad® and Android™. Control your monitor mixes with QMix®-UC for iPhone®, iPod® touch, and Android devices. Whether you’re adjusting monitor mixes on stage, moving around the room to dial in your mix, or using your mobile device as a second screen for your StudioLive 32S digital mixer, remote controlling your mix from anywhere just got easier.

 

A complete networked solution.

The StudioLive 32S is the flexible cornerstone for a custom AVB network that is easily expanded and quickly configured. Designed to complement each other, StudioLive Series III networked products form an ecosystem that is at the forefront of AVB networking technology. Route audio to EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers. Connect NSB-series stage boxes and StudioLive Series III rack mixers to add remote inputs and outputs. With powerful plug-in processing, a fader for every channel, and integrated networking onboard, the StudioLive 32S delivers an unmatched mixing experience that combines digital power with analog ease of use.

This suite of plug-ins adds a wealth of fresh virtual instruments and effects to Studio One. Cherry-picked from the first names in virtual instruments and effects, each plug-in brings a different flavor of practical magic to your songs. These plug-ins aren't gimmicky one-trick ponies — these are real-deal workhorses that you'll rely on for countless mixes.
