PreSonus StudioLive 32R – 34-Input, 32-Channel SIII Rack Mixer


PreSonus StudioLive 32R – 34-Input, 32-Channel Series III Stage Box & Rack Mixer


The PreSonus StudioLive 32R is a Series III, 32-channel 2 RU stagebox and rack mixer designed to serve as a simple stage box, rack mixer, or combination stagebox and monitor mixer. The 32R is equipped for AVB networking, allowing it to be connected to another Series III mixer via a single, lightweight CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for heavy, expensive copper snakes, and the signal degradation caused by long cable runs. All the on-board XMAX microphone preamps can be remotely controlled from the front-of-house position. In stage box + monitor mixer mode, the StudioLive 32R not only serves as a professional networked stage box, but is a full-blown monitor mixer with advanced processing and mixing power.

The StudioLive 32R offers professional-quality sound with its on-board Series III processors and 3rd generation Fat Channel, which implements a plug-in-style workflow that features vintage-style EQ and compression options on every channel, from classic tube limiters to passive EQs. In addition to channel processing, the StudioLive 32R offers 6-band, fully parametric EQ on all mix outputs. There are 16 FlexMixes that can be individually designated as aux, subgroup, or matrix mixes, while 24 Filter DCAs offer easy and flexible control over groups of channels.

There are 32 combo XLR-1/4″ inputs (mic/line) and an additional set of stereo RCA inputs for flexibility. The 16 FlexMix outputs feature 1/4″ TRS connectors, while the main output offers balanced XLR connectors. A built-in SD card recorder allows you to quickly and easily record the main mix or any other stereo mix without the need for a computer. What’s more, you can simultaneously multitrack record to your laptop via USB or AVB and record in stereo to SD.

The PreSonus StudioLive 32R ships with an integrated software package including Studio One Artist, UC Surface, and Capture. Studio One Artist is a full-featured DAW for recording, mixing, and playing back tracks. The software offers remote control over the XMAX preamps and the Fat Channel processing. UC Surface offers touch-control for Mac, Windows, Android, and iPad, allowing you to control the mixer wirelessly from anywhere in the room, while Capture allows you to completely automate virtual sound-checks and record shows. Additionally, the StudioMagic plug-in suite is included, which provides a wealth of fresh sounds and effects from companies such as Eventide, Lexicon, SPL, MAAG, Brainworks, and Arturia. The PreSonus StudioLive 32R ships with a power cord and a USB cable.
