Get High Power Mixing Capability From A Compact Unit With The Midas M32R LIVE 32-Channel Compact Digital Mixer

The goal for M32R LIVE was to combine the best of classic British console designs with advanced modern technology to completely redefine what a rack mountable digital desktop mixing console can offer. They began the industrial design process by drawing inspiration from a somewhat unexpected source— the luxury and high-performance car industry.

In order to create a future-forward design that took the Midas legacy even further, Midas enlisted the help of Rajesh Kutty, a leading industrial designer known for his work with celebrated luxury auto manufacturers such as Bentley, etc.

A close look at M32R LIVE reveals that the styling is completely new in every sense of the word. Rajesh Kutty's automotive-inspired design elements mesh perfectly with a recognizable Midas signature, setting the M32R LIVE apart from any other console. Its beautifully streamlined and elegant form factor completely revolutionizes the experience of live mixing.

Industry-Leading 192 kHz Precision

The groundbreaking M32R LIVE console combines legendary Midas sound quality with advanced digital technology, future-proof floating point audio engine, extremely low-latency design and industry-leading 192 kHz ADC and DAC converters, creating a revolutionary mid-format live console. M32R LIVE features ultra-sleek styling, offering you a truly luxurious mixing experience. High-end construction materials include carbon-fiber provide unparalleled durability and strength, plus substantially lower weight than comparable consoles

Legendary Midas Sound Quality

While the Midas M32R LIVE design, styling, and construction will surely turn a lot of heads, it's the sound that matters most to engineers and performing artists. And that's where M32R LIVE shines even brighter. As the latest in a long line of pristine-sounding Midas consoles, it descends from a celebrated lineage that literally set the standard in electrical design and sound quality.
