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.

Presonus built our reputation designing great-sounding analog circuits for critical studio recording environments, and they have put all of that experience into designing the StudioLive 32S digital mixer. In 1995, PreSonus patented digital control over analog circuits with thier first studio product. Building on this legacy, Presonus created a separate digital volume-control circuit ahead of thier 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. Ten included vintage EQ and classic compressor Fat Channel plug-in models can be used onboard your mixer as well as within Studio One. And when you’re ready for more signal processing options, PreSonus offers four Fat Channel plug-in collections with 15 additional models. Fat Channel plug-ins can be inserted on every input channel and output bus. Now you can enjoy extensive, studio-style processing whether recording in the studio or running shows on the road.

Flexible mixing without limits.

PreSonus designed the StudioLive 32S digital mixer to adapt with your changing needs, whether you’re mixing in the studio or on a busy festival stage. The 16 FlexMixes on the StudioLive 32S digital mixer can be individually configured to function as an aux bus, a subgroup, or a matrix mix. 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. No other digital mixer provides this much flexibility.

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.

PreSonus Studio One® Artist DAW is included with the StudioLive 32S. Studio One seamlessly combines the time-tested and proven recording studio model with today’s beat- and loop-oriented production process so you can spend your precious time creating music instead of wondering what to click next.

The Expandable Fat Channel

Thanks to advanced engineering and the unique interoperability between PreSonus® hardware and software, you can enhance your StudioLive® Series III mixer and Studio One® Fat Channel with plug-in processors. These plug-ins are virtual signal processors that load in your StudioLive Series III console or rack mixer’s Fat Channel, expanding your Fat Channel processor library much like plug-ins do in a DAW. Each plug-in comes in both StudioLive Series III format and Studio One format so you can use your new processor in both mixer and DAW Fat Channels.

PreSonus Fat Channel plug-ins are state-space modeled by world-class engineers with Ph.D.’s in analog signal processing to faithfully produce the sound and response of the original hardware processors. Now you can have a wide variety of fresh DSP for live and studio sound. No other mixer anywhere near this price class has expandable processing—only PreSonus StudioLive Series III.

Compressors

Our eight classic compressors cover the gamut, including FET, tube, optical, and VCA designs. From soft, smooth attacks to fast, in-your-face response, you’ll find it in the Fat Channel Collection.

RC-500 Compressor

FET-based compressors such as the one in the PreSonus RC 500 use transistors to emulate a triode tube’s operation and sound. This type of compressor generally provides a faster attack time and better repeatability than the optical compressors typically found in channel strips. Modeled after PreSonus' RC500 signature FET compressor, this plug-in provides an ultra-fast attack time and repeatable performance.

Included in the free PreSonus Bundle.

VT-1 Compressor

Stunning high-end sound and incredible versatility are hallmarks of PreSonus’ VT-1, which is modeled after a popular vacuum tube channel strip’s FET compressor. The VT-1 provides fast attack and repeatable performance. The VT-1 provides fast attack and repeatable performance with a fully variable ratio.

Included in the free PreSonus Bundle.

Brit Comp

Capturing the unique sound of a twin VCA gain-reduction amplifier design, the Brit Comp is ideal for taming piano dynamics or adding punch to drums and percussion.

Included in the Classic Studio Bundle.

FC-670 Compressor

This model of an iconic compressor/limiter of the 1950s imparts an unmistakable silky warmth on just about any signal.

Included in the Classic Studio Bundle.

Comp 160 Compressor

With simple controls, yet capable of extreme compression traits, the Comp 160 provides VCA character with a personality all its own. Try it on drums—you’ll be glad you did!

Included in the Modern Classics Bundle.

Everest C100A Compressor

Based on a classic design focused on gentle, natural-sounding gain reduction, the Everest C100A helps control dynamics while still letting the signal breathe.

Included in the Modern Classics Bundle.

Classic Compressor

The smooth character of this compressor allows you to create transparent or extreme color changes to your audio, making it a workhorse for just about any application.

Included in the Vintage Channel Strips Bundle.

Tube P1B Compressor

In general, the response time of optical compressors tends to soften the attack and release, which can smooth out uneven volume fluctuations. Emulating an all-tube, optical design, the Tube P1B compressor delivers musicality, preserving the clarity of the signal even at the most extreme settings.

Included in the Vintage Channel Strips Bundle.

Equalizers

Each of these seven popular equalizers offers a different flavor, from the classic British sound of the Solar 69 to the subtle Baxandall; the smooth, refined VT-1 tube EQ; and the more modern, solid-state RC-500. As with all processors in the Fat Channel Collection, they’re state-space modeled so they respond just like the original hardware circuits.

RC-500 EQ

It's rare to find a truly outstanding solid-state channel strip that can deliver a vintage vibe reminiscent of classic high-end products, yet employs a thoroughly modern design. The PreSonus RC 500 was one of these rare gems. The RC 500 EQ plug-in is modeled after the channel strip’s 3-band semi-parametric EQ and combines isolated filters and optimized, per-band Q to provide subtle signal-shaping without harsh artifacts.

Included in the free PreSonus Bundle.

VT-1 EQ

The VT-1 EQ models a popular vacuum tube channel strip’s 4-band semi-parametric EQ, which combines isolated filters and optimized, per-band Q. Designed with musicality in mind, this EQ is smooth and refined, which made it an instant classic.

Included in the free PreSonus Bundle.

Alpine EQ-550

The 1960s-vintage EQ provides consistent, repeatable equalization using three overlapping bands, divided into seven fixed frequency points, each with five steps of boost or cut. Its selectable peaking or shelving filters for the high and low band, along with an independently insertable bandpass filter, provide an easy path to creating acoustically superior equalization.

Included in the Classic Studio Bundle.

Solar 69 EQ

The sound of classic British EQ is absolutely legendary and has enhanced many a great recording. Emulating this classic British design, the Solar 69 EQ adds definition to kick drums, shapes electric guitars, and adds shimmer to acoustic guitars and vocals without sacrificing body.

Included in the Classic Studio Bundle.

Baxandall EQ

This EQ offers the world's most popular EQ curve. Using gently sweeping treble and bass EQ shelves, it allows you to make subtle, yet effective, changes over wide swaths of the frequency spectrum.

Included in the Modern Classics Bundle.

Tube Midrange EQ

This midrange EQ is based on a passive, all-tube design for ultra-smooth and musical equalization, making it ideal for any midrange source material.

Included in the Vintage Channel Strips Bundle.

Vintage 3-band EQ

With its distinct filter shaping, sheen, and bite, this three-band active EQ includes both high and low shelving filters, providing enhanced tone-shaping possibilities.

Included in the Vintage Channel Strips Bundle.
