Product Overview

Digital Console for Live Sound and Studio Mixing

A Future Classic

The Midas M32 LIVE is a combination of the best British console designs with advanced modern technology to completely redefine what a medium-format live console can offer.

Midas M32 Live

A landmark in console history

A close look at the Midas M32 LIVE reveals that the styling is completely new in every sense of the word. Its automotive-inspired design elements mesh perfectly with a recognisable Midas signature, setting the M32 LIVE apart from any other console. Its beautifully streamlined and elegant form factor completely revolutionises the experience of live mixing. The Midas M32 LIVE construction is equally impressive, and is designed to offer you years of reliable performance while withstanding the demanding environment of live performance venues.

Midas M32 Live

Industry-Leading 192 kHz Precision

The ground breaking Midas M32 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.

Robust and Stylish Design:

M32 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 M32 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.

Creating Sonic Landscapes

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.

Ease of usability:

Whether you come from an analogue mixing background, or are accustomed to using other digital consoles, your first experience with M32 LIVE has been engineered to be intuitive, fluid and straightforward.
