Dual-core FLEX DSP engine boasts impressive processing muscle

PreSonus StudioLive 32S is packed with serious power. Its dual-core
FLEX DSP engine possesses enough processing muscle to run 286
simultaneous processors, 26 mix buses, and 40 mixing channels. And its
FLEX FX multi-effects processor includes four slots of reverb emulations
and delays with four dedicated effects buses. At Sweetwater, we’re
impressed by the sheer amount of raw power that’s lurking under the
32S’s hood.

Three options for multitrack recording

PreSonus StudioLive 32S gives you three efficient options for
multitrack recording. A built-in SD card recorder allows you to record
all inputs simultaneously, and you can also play back from the SD card
to do virtual soundchecks without a computer. You can also connect to a
computer via USB for 64 channels of recording and playback — almost
twice that of previous generations. And the StudioLive 32S supports AVB
over Ethernet too, enabling you to interface directly with PreSonus NSB
stage boxes, EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers, and SW5E AVB switches.

Pristine XMAX preamps for sound reinforcement and recording

put, the 32 Class A XMAX preamps onboard the PreSonus StudioLive 32S
sound like they belong in the studio. Their high headroom and low noise
floor deliver extremely clean and clear sound you simply wouldn’t expect
from a live console. And mic preamp settings are fully recallable,
which is a huge time saver when you mix or record the same band or show
on a regular basis.

Flex Mixes offer a ton of freedom for any mixing application

can be frustrating trying to use the same mixer for many different
tasks. Thanks to Flex Mixes, that’s not the case with the PreSonus
StudioLive 32S. Flex Mixes can be set up as aux mixes, subgroups, or
matrix mixes, depending on what your show demands.

Need a ton of
different monitor mixes for a large group of musicians? No problem, you
can create up to 16 aux sends if you need to. Same with subgroups and
matrix mixes — perfect for theater productions and multi-zone venues,
respectively. Basically, the PreSonus StudioLive 32S’s Flex Mixes allow
you to adapt your mixer to the mixing task at hand, instead of adapting
your workflow to the limitations of your mixer.

Advanced processing for EQ, compression, and effects

PreSonus StudioLive series of consoles has always been known for
outstanding effects and processing capabilities, and the StudioLive 32S
takes it even further. Its FLEX FX multi-effects processor supplies you
with four internal effects buses that are loaded with a combination of
reverbs, delays, and other effects that you can route any channel
through. On top of that, Fat Channel processing offers vintage EQ and
compressor models on every channel. And if you crave even more plug-in
processing power, you can bolster your 32S with PreSonus’s Fat Channel
Collection (sold separately).

Includes a plethora of useful software

PreSonus StudioLive 32S is a complete solution. It includes UC Surface
mix control software, which enables you to access virtually any aspect
of your mix, and with support for up to four screens, you could hardly
ask for more comprehensive feedback. Capture live recording software
records all 32 channels plus a stereo mix of your choosing via USB, to
an SD card, or both for a redundant live recording rig. You also get
Studio One Artist — a powerful DAW with smart features aimed at making
you a total creative beast. What’s more, the 32S is compatible with the
free QMix-UC app, which allows artists to control their own monitor

Your purchase also includes Studio One Artist and
everything you need to start recording via your computer. Plus, to take
your recordings to the next level, you get the Studio Magic plug-in
suite. This extensive collection of popular plug-ins includes emulations
of classic studio gear from legendary manufacturers, adding hundreds of
dollars in extra value. Punch up your mix bus with the Brainworx
bx_opto compressor, add ambient reverb with Lexicon MPX-i Reverb, fire
up transients with SPL's Attacker Plus, and much more. And since these
plug-ins are available in AAX, VST, and AU formats, they're compatible
with any DAW.
