1 X Midas M32R Live. Digital Console for Live and Studio with 40 Input Channels, 16 Midas PRO Microphone Preamplifiers and 25 Mix Buses and Live Multitrack Recording.
Our 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. We began the industrial design process by drawing inspiration from a somewhat unexpected source - the luxury and high-performance car. 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 fibre provide unparalleled durability and strength, plus substantially lower weight than comparable consoles. The M32R LIVE utilises award-winning Midas PRO Series microphone preamplifiers and the custom-designed Midas PRO motorised faders that are rated for 1 million life cycles-three times more than other leading consoles. The Midas M32R LIVE is a future-forward console that completely raises the bar for live mixing. 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.
Ever since Midas consoles first found fame 40 years ago with acts like Billy Joel, Yes, The Beach Boys, Pink Floyd and others, the Midas legacy has always been about uncompromising quality and the ultimate in sound reproduction. Backing the analogue input section are audiophile Cirrus Logic multi-channel 192 kHz capable A/D converters, which boast a 114 dB dynamic range, ensuring impressively low distortion and low noise performance. The M32R LIVE is a console built for today, and tomorrow - its rock-solid proprietary operating system and the 0.8 ms audio engine provide outstanding state-of-the-art audio performance for years to come. The Midas preamplifier design eliminates typical imbalances of gain-setting stages, thereby improving the common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR) and harmonic distortion to an almost immeasurable level. The constant high-frequency bandwidth topology assures excellent stability, RF rejection and noise performance at all gain levels, contributing to its transparent, open and dynamic sound.
But it doesn't end there, over the years many mix engineers have found that this robust and overload-tolerant design takes on a whole new dimension of sound when driven hard, the pristine audiophile reproduction giving way to just the right combination of harmonics, a warm and organic sound heard by millions of concertgoers and recorded for posterity on countless live albums over the years. Since pristine sound always begins with the microphone preamplifier, the first point where your signal enters the console, M32R LIVE features genuine Midas microphone preamplifiers, which faithfully reproduce every sonic detail so no part of a performance will ever be missed. Transparent and pristine sound, low noise and high common-mode rejection are all hallmarks of this classic design. The microphone preamplifiers are the very same ones used in the industry standard Midas XL4 and HERITAGE 3000 consoles, which many consider to be the greatest analogue live consoles ever built.
Over the past decade, the XL4 and HERITAGE 3000 have been utilised by countless top artists including Bon Jovi, Alanis Morrisette, AC/DC, Coldplay, Kid Rock, Metallica, Alicia Keys, Foo Fighters, Christina Aguilera, Sir Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam, and many more.

From the first moments of use, the workflow unfolds in a way that strips away obstacles, distractions, and hesitation. The M32R LIVE Channel Strip puts the most important channel processing parameters into one section so that no matter which channel you are working on, the controls are always the same. This highly-efficient layout stems from Midas decades of console design and input from our users.
Optimized control illumination ensures a clear indication of levels or status from any viewing angle. Illuminated rotary encoders and switches give you control of preamp settings, frequency shelving, dual dynamics sections, as well as multi-mode fully parametric EQ, bus sends, main, mono and stereo panning. M32R LIVE's 5 day-viewable color TFT (Thin-Film Transistor) display shows the setting parameters you need when you need them. Selected for its high-contrast performance and outdoor visibility, TFT is ideal for concert and open air festival venues.
Flanked by high-precision, context-sensitive tactile encoders, the screen comes to life and immediately reports in high definition all adjustments applied to a wide range of parameters. Intelligent design puts control of vital functions such as Effects, Metering, Routing and much more 1 or 2 button presses away. M32R LIVE brings the convenience of digital mixing to your Aux and output bus mixes too, thanks to its integrated Sends on Fader feature.This incredible function allows you to build powerful, dedicated sub-mixes for monitor, secondary zone feeds, and much more - all without affecting the front of house mix or levels. The M32R LIVE allows you to send your choice of signals to any Aux or output bus and then dial in the perfect mix via the channel faders. The console remembers where you set the faders and instantly recalls them when you select a bus for quick adjustments. Across the M32R LIVE you'll find 11 strategically placed View buttons associated with various functions.
These buttons enable immediate access to information about that specific function. For instance, if you press the View button in the Equaliser section, information for that channel's EQ is instantly shown on the main display, providing in-depth editing of all related parameters. This direct access to visual fine-tuning gives the engineer a level of control previously available only on consoles costing exponentially more. Custom-designed, and physically modeled after some of the most iconic and sought-after processors, all effects run inside the low-latency environment of the M32R LIVE mix engine, ensuring flawless performance, flexible routing and the end of cable faults forever! 16 award-winning MIDAS PRO microphone preamplifiers.
