The best digital mixer for recording - with or without a computer.
PreSonus Capture recording software is an intuitive, rock-solid multitrack recording application with a fully integrated Virtual Soundcheck mode that runs directly on your StudioLive 32 digital mixer or on your macOS or Windows machine. This gives you the option to record to your computer using the USB audio interface built into your StudioLive 32 digital mixer, or leave your laptop at home and record 34 streams directly to an SD card. Record any combination of channels, FlexMixes, and the Main stereo mix either to USB, to an SD Card, or both for the ultimate redundant live recording rig with the touch of a single button. 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 recreated in the Studio One console, complete with fader levels, Fat Channel settings, mutes, solos, and more to launch your live mix right where you left it.
Studio One Professional included.
For years, we've included Studio One Artist with our hardware interfaces and mixers. But with the StudioLive 32, we know you're looking to go big or go home—so we chose to bundle the Professional edition of Studio One with each StudioLive 32. Not only will you enjoy Professional-only features like Melodyne Integration, the mastering Project Page, Note FX, and Macro Controls, you'll also get tight hardware integration between Studio One and your mixer, including remote preamp control from directly within Studio One.
Live Mixer. Studio sound. Fat Channel plug-ins bring your mix to life.
The dynamic Fat Channel on the StudioLive 32 digital mixer puts critical EQ and Dynamics functions beneath your fingertips while giving you fast access to every parameter via the full-color touchscreen or from the Fat Channel encoders, depending on how you like to work. The StudioLive 32 digital mixer comes with ten vintage EQ and classic compressor Fat Channel plug-in models that can be used onboard your mixer as well as within Studio One. And when you’re ready for more options, PreSonus offers four Fat Channel plug-in collectionswith fifteen additional models from which to choose, giving you a host of new signal processing options. While Fat Channel plug-ins are available for every input channel, every output bus on the StudioLive 32 digital mixer is equipped with a fully variable 6-band parametric EQ, compressor, and limiter. Now you can enjoy extensive, studio-style processing whether recording in the studio or running shows on the road.
A digital mixing console customized for you.
The StudioLive 32 digital mixer offers a flexible design that allows you to personalize the layout to better fit the way you work. A customizable User layer lets you create a view for any assortment of channels and buses on the 32 touch-sensitive motorized faders, making it easy to simplify a complex mix. Similarly, the dynamic Fat Channel can be laid out to put the parameters you care about most right at your fingertips. An optional accessory shelf is available to add up to three additional touch screens to your StudioLive 32 digital mixer using UC Surface and your iPad® or favorite Android™ device.
Create buses and groups you need.
Whether you’re mixing in the studio or for a busy festival stage, the buses you need to facilitate the mix you want to create change. PreSonus designed the StudioLive 32 digital mixer to adapt with those changing needs. Each of the 16 FlexMixes on the StudioLive 32 digital mixer can be individually configured to function as an aux bus, a subgroup, or a matrix mix. An additional four static subgroup buses and 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. And with flexible viewing options for the 33 touch-sensitive motorized faders, you can choose to view 32 inputs at once or split your faders between 24 input channels and 8 outputs, including DCAs and subgroups. The Master fader can even be locked to always control your main mix or to follow the currently selected mix.
Reconfigure your mix without unplugging a single cable.
StudioLive Series III digital mixers incorporate the concept of an analog patch bay and digitize it. This lets you patch any analog input or digital return (AVB, USB, or SD) to any channel you like and customize your mix configuration. This flexible feature also allows you to freely route audio to your AVB network and record anything you’d like via USB, so you’re not limited to recording just the input channels and the main mix.
The ultimate USB audio interface and DAW control surface with motorized faders.
With 128 channels (64x64) of USB I/O, the StudioLive 32 is not just the best digital mixer for live sound recording; it’s the best digital mixer for the studio as well. Each channel can independently access its analog input or its dedicated digital return from your computer. And recording is simple and easy. Studio One and the StudioLive 32 digital mixer are the perfect pair to elevate your studio recordings. Remote control the StudioLive 32’s recallable XMAX mic preamps and Fat Channel processing with Studio One for low-latency recording with effects. Press the DAW button your StudioLive 32 digital mixer and use the 33 touch-sensitive motorized faders to control your Studio One mix. Seamless integration and thoughtful bidirectional control with Studio One make the StudioLive 32 the best mixing console for the modern recording studio.
Remote control your digital mixer from anywhere… on any device.
PreSonus StudioLive 32 digital mixers are tightly integrated with an entire suite of state-of-the-art software. 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. A dedicated 1 Gb Ethernet port is provided to connect to a wireless router and create a control network for devices running UC Surface or QMix-UC. Adjust monitor mixes on stage; move around the room to dial in your mix; or add an accessory shelf and use your mobile device as second screen for your StudioLive 32 digital mixer.
Extensive connections for flexible signal flow.
The back panel of a StudioLive 32 digital mixer is equipped with plenty of local analog I/O. 32 local analog mic/line channel inputs make it easy to connect a variety of gear. 16 local mix outputs let you route to floor monitors, delay stacks and more. But the local I/O is only half the story. Connect your StudioLive 32 digital mixer to an AVB audio network and add remote inputs and outputs anywhere you need them using NSB-series stage boxes.
PreSonus built our reputation designing great-sounding analog circuits for critical studio recording environments, and we put all of that experience into designing the StudioLive 32 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 32 mic preamps to be remote-controlled with UC Surface software or Studio One, and when you load a StudioLive 32 mixer scene, the mic preamp trim values can also be recalled along with the other settings.
Includes Studio Magic Plug-in Suite.
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.
The PreSonus StudioLive 32 digital mixing console/recorder represents the third generation of the acclaimed StudioLive series, and it's just as capable in the studio as it is for live sound. The revamped signal processing workflow provides vintage-style EQ and compression for every channel. You've got 32 PreSonus XMAX recallable preamps onboard, 33 touch-sensitive motorized faders, and a built-in SD card slot for multitrack recording and virtual soundchecks. Artists have full control over their own monitor mixes via the free QMix app, and the included UC Surface 2 touch-control software, Capture recording software, and Studio One Professional DAW software equip you for recording, mixing and mastering. For live sound and studio recording, the PreSonus StudioLive 32 stands out in its class.
Three options for multitrack recording
The PreSonus StudioLive 32 gives you three efficient options for multitrack recording. A built-in SD card recorder allows you to record all inputs simultaneously, and you can also play back from the SD card to do virtual soundchecks without a computer. You can also connect to a computer via USB for 38 channels of recording and playback. And the StudioLive 32 supports AVB over Ethernet too, allowing for 55 channels of recording and playback.
Pristine XMAX preamps for sound reinforcement and recording
Simply put, the 32 Class A XMAX preamps onboard the StudioLive 32 sound like they belong in the studio. Their high headroom and low noise floor deliver extremely clean and clear sound you simply wouldn't expect from a live console. And mic preamp settings are fully recallable, which is a huge time saver when you mix or record the same band or show on a regular basis.
