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. Fat Channel plug-ins can be inserted on every input channel and output bus. You can enjoy extensive, studio-style processing whether recording in the studio or running shows on the road.

The StudioLive 32S includes six Classic Fat Channel EQ and Compressor plug-in models pre-installed. But you also get Fat Channel Collection Vol. 1... which includes 15 additional vintage-modeled EQs and Compressors.

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.​

The Ultimate USB Audio Interface And Control Surface

With 128 (64x64) channels of recording over USB, the StudioLive 32S 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. While the StudioLive 32S is compatible with any DAW, Studio One and the StudioLive 32S are the perfect pair to elevate your studio recording environment. Remote control your StudioLive 32S digital mixer’s recallable XMAX mic preamps and Fat Channel processing from Studio One Artist. Press the DAW button on your StudioLive 32S 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 32S the best mixing console for the modern recording studio.
