PreSonus built their reputation on designing great-sounding analog circuits for critical studio recording environments, and they put all of that experience into designing the StudioLive 32SC digital mixer. In 1995, PreSonus patented digital control over analog circuits with our first studio product. Building on this legacy, they created a separate digital volume-control circuit ahead of the lauded analog XMAX mic preamp design, providing the convenience of digital recall without sacrificing fidelity. This allows the mic preamps to be remote-controlled with UC Surface software or Studio One, and when you load a StudioLive mixer scene, the mic preamp trim values can also be recalled along with the other settings.
The digital mixer built to record music.
With 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 analog input or its dedicated digital return from your computer. Ten vintage EQ and classic compressor Fat Channel plug-in models are included and 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, giving you extensive, studio-style processing while mixing and recording.
The mobile music recording studio.
PreSonus Capture recording 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.
Remote 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. Also provided are 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 customize your StudioLive 32SC to fit your needs—even when those needs change.
