Tech Specs

The most powerful mixer in its class.

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.

StudioLive® 32: 40-input digital console/recorder with motorized faders

studiolive_32-10

Extensive connections for flexible signal flow.

The back panel of a StudioLive 32 console sports all of the connections you need for live sound and studio production. With flexible connectivity, superior audio quality, the ability to customize for your workflow, and powerful processing, mixing, and routing capabilities, you’ll create your mixes in whatever manner works best for you. We just provide the tools.

Superior sound.

Connect a StudioLive 32 mixer, and you’ll instantly hear details and an open high end you’d expect to find only in an expensive studio console. We built our reputation designing great-sounding analog circuits, including our famous XMAX solid-state, Class A preamps, and we put all of that experience into designing the StudioLive 32. We didn’t cut corners on components, and we just say “No!” to noisy, crosstalk-y ribbon cables. As a result, the StudioLive 32 delivers the high-end audio quality you need to preserve your hard-earned reputation for producing great-sounding mixes and recordings.

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.

Flex Mixes offer a ton of freedom for any mixing application

At Modular Display, we know it can be frustrating trying to use the same mixer for many different tasks. That's why we're excited about the 16 Flex Mixes offered on the PreSonus StudioLive 32. Flex Mixes can be set up as Aux mixes, Subgroups, or Matrix mixes, depending on what your show demands. Need a ton of different monitor mixes for a large group of musicians? No problem, you can create up to 16 aux sends if you need to. Same with Subgroups and Matrix mixes — perfect for theater productions and multi-zone venues, respectively. Basically, the StudioLive 32's Flex Mixes allow you to adapt your mixer to the mixing task at hand, instead of adapting your workflow to the limitations of your mixer.

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.

UC apps deliver full-featured remote control options

One of the major updates Series III brings to the StudioLive mixer line is powerful and flexible remote control via both wired and Wi-Fi network connections. If you're the engineer, then you'll love UC Surface, which is available for Mac, Windows, and iPad platforms. UC Surface lets you access virtually any aspect of your mix, and with support for up to four screens, you could hardly ask for more comprehensive feedback. On the other side of the stage, artists can control their own monitor mixes via the QMix-UC app. What's more, QMix-UC is available for both iOS and Android operating systems.

PreSonus StudioLive 32 mixers are tightly integrated with an entire suite of state-of-the-art software. Mix wirelessly or over a wired network from anywhere, using UC Surface touch-control software for Mac, Windows, and iPad®. Control your monitor (aux) mixes with QMix-UC for iPhone, iPod touch, and Android devices. Remote control the mixer’s recallable XMAX preamps and Fat Channel processing with Studio One Professional for low-latency recording with effects. (Reverb-drowned singers: rejoice!) Completely automate virtual soundchecks and record shows with Capture. Save mixer scenes with your live recordings in Capture and edit both in Studio One Professional. StudioLive 32 mixers and software work together to form a cohesive ecosystem that helps you achieve your creative vision.

Advanced processing for EQ, compression, and effects

The StudioLive series of consoles has always been known for outstanding effects and processing capabilities, and the StudioLive 32 takes it even further. You get four internal effects buses that are loaded with a combination of reverbs, delays and other effects that you can route any channel through. On top of that, Fat Channel processing offers vintage EQ and compressor models on every channel.

Includes a full version of Studio One Professional DAW software

PreSonus Studio One 3 Professional raises the bar. Sporting an elegant single-window workspace with robust drag-and-drop functionality and multi-touch support, version 3 of this powerhouse DAW gives you more smart features aimed at making you a total creative beast. These include an on-the-fly Arranger Track with Scratch Pads that let you freely experiment with musical or sonic ideas; an upgraded browser that lets you find, preview, and drag and drop tempo-matched backing tracks, samples, effects, instruments, presets, and more; and the Mai Tai analog modeling polysynth with character morph, mod matrix, and zero-feedback filters.

PreSonus delivers more value than ever with their mixers and interfaces, thanks to the Studio Magic Plug-in Suite. This extensive collection of seven popular plug-ins covers models of top studio gear from manufacturers such as Maag Audio, Lexicon, and Arturia, adding up to hundreds of dollars of extra value. Punch up your mix bus with Brainworx's bx-opto, add ambience with Eventide's SP2016-inspired Stereo Room reverb, fire up transients with SPL's Attacker, and much more. And since these plug-ins are available in AAX, VST, and AU formats, they're compatible with any DAW you choose.

Network-ready, with a choice of computer recording methods.

Networking isn’t the future of professional audio systems; it’s here now. StudioLive 24 mixers come equipped with an AVB Ethernet connection that enables you to network multiple StudioLive 24 mixers and compatible computers and stream up to 55 channels of audio to and from a Mac or Windows PC. You also get 38x38 recording via USB 2.0, giving you a choice of computer recording methods. Each channel can independently access its analog input or its dedicated digital return from your computer. And recording is simple and easy: Just launch the included, preconfigured Capture software for one-click recording of all channel inputs and your main mix. Or record with the included Studio One Artist DAW—or with any recording software that supports ASIO or Core Audio.

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.
