The best digital mixer for recording - with or without a computer.
PreSonus Capture® recording software is an intuitive multitrack recording application with a fully integrated Virtual Soundcheck mode that runs directly on your StudioLive 32S digital mixer or on your computer running macOS® or Windows®. 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.
We built our reputation designing great-sounding analog circuits for critical studio recording environments, and we put all of that experience into designing the StudioLive 32S digital mixer. In 1995, PreSonus patented digital control over analog circuits with our first studio product. Building on this legacy, we created a separate digital volume-control circuit ahead of our 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. Fat Channel plug-ins can be inserted on every input channel and output bus. You can enjoy extensive, studio-style processing whether recording in the studio or running shows on the road.
The StudioLive 32S includes six Classic Fat Channel EQ and Compressor plug-in models pre-installed. But you also get Fat Channel Collection Vol. 1... which includes 15 additional vintage-modeled EQs and Compressors—a $200 (CAD) value if purchased separately.
