Presonus StudioLive 32SC Digital Mixer

Small digital mixer. Big power.

The StudioLive 32SC is a compact, rack-mountable 32-channel digital mixer that can be quickly and easily scaled for 16-, 24-, and 32-channel applications. Don't let the road-ready size fool you; the StudioLive 32SC sports a dual-core PreSonus FLEX DSP Engine powering 40 mixing channels, 26 mix busses, 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 and AVB network audio I/O, flexible routing options, and studio-grade audio quality, the StudioLive 32SC provides all the tools you need - whether you're building your dream studio or putting together a pro-touring rig.

The scalable digital mixer.

The StudioLive 32SC digital mixer and the complete PreSonus' StudioLive Series III ecosystem of AVB networking products allow you to create a system that is truly customised for your needs. Connect NSB-series stage boxes to add remote analogue inputs and outputs wherever they're required and complete your 32-channel, 16-bus StudioLive 32SC. 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 on your StudioLive 32SC digital mixer and in UC Surface remote mixer software.

Superior sound.

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

The mobile music recording studio.

PreSonus Capturerecording software is an intuitive multitrack recording application with a fully integrated Virtual Soundcheck mode that runs directly on your StudioLive 32SC digital mixer or on your Mac or Windows computer. Record all 32 channels plus a stereo mix of your choosing 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.

The best music recording software included.

Studio One revolutionized music recording, making common mixing and production tasks as easy as drag-and-drop. Tight integration with StudioLive 32SC digital mixers allows you to control preamp levels and more right from the Studio One software console. Press the DAW button on your StudioLive 32SC, and your Studio One controls are right under your fingertips on your digital mixer. Studio One control can be toggled on and off, allowing you to quickly switch between your live mix and your production mix with the press of a button. Studio One Artist is included with the StudioLive 32SC, so you can start recording right out of the box.

emote control your digital mixer from anywhere on any device.

PreSonus StudioLive Series III 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. 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 32SC digital mixer, remotely controlling your mix from anywhere just got easier.

The bus that takes you everywhere.

Everyone has a unique mixing style, so PreSonus designed the StudioLive 32SC to be configured to work the way you like to mix. The 16 FlexMixes in the StudioLive 32SC digital mixer can be individually configured to function as aux buses, subgroups, or matrix mixes. 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. Inputs and buses can be freely routed internally, out to your AVB network, and over the USB bus, allowing you to customise your StudioLive 32SC to fit your needs, even when those needs change.

The digital mixer built to record music.

ith 128 (64x64) channels of recording over USB, you can record every input channel and bus on your StudioLive 32SC for the ultimate recording rig. Each channel can independently access its analogue input or its dedicated digital return from your computer. Ten pre-installed vintage EQ and classic compressor Fat Channel plug-in models can be used onboard your mixer as well as within Studio One. And you also get Fat Channel Collection Vol. 1... which includes 15 additional vintage-modelled EQs and Compressors's. Fat Channel plug-ins can be inserted on every input channel and output bus, giving you extensive, studio-style processing while mixing and recording.

A complete networked solution.

StudioLive Series III networked products form an ecosystem that is easily expanded and quickly configured. Designed to enhance each other, these products are at the forefront of AVB networking technology. The StudioLive 32SC's integrated AVB networking allows you to expand your mixer as your needs grow. Add NSB-series stage boxes to add analogue inputs and outputs. Route audio to EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers for customised mixes on stage. With powerful plug-in processing, advanced recording features, and flexible mix buses, the StudioLive 32SC is the best digital mixer for mobile live sound and recording music.
