Manufacturer's Description

PreSonus StudioLive Series III 32R 32-Channel Digital Rack Mixer & Stage Box

The StudioLive® 32R digital mixer is four audio tools in two compact rackspaces. Use it as a standalone digital mixer with UC Surface remote mixing software. Pair it with your StudioLive Series III console mixer to use as a stage box or integrated monitor mixer. Connect it with EarMix 16M monitor mixers for the ultimate personal monitor system. Plug it into your studio computer, and you have a continuously bidirectional, 128-channel (64x64) USB audio interface with modeled vintage dynamics and EQ plug-ins on every input and bus. Whether used standalone or as part of a complete audio system, no other rackmount digital mixer is as flexible or as powerful.

Inside the StudioLive 32R, the single-core PreSonus® FLEX DSP Engine powers 40 mixing channels, 22 mix buses, and 270 simultaneous processors, including 4 stereo effects and Fat Channel plug-in models on every input channel and mix bus. This is a true 32-channel digital mixer that can comfortably fit in any size rig. Simply connect it to a standard wireless router and control every mix parameter from your iPad®, Android™ tablet, or Windows® Touch computer using UC Surface. UC Surface was designed to make mixing on a touch screen as intuitive as mixing on faders.

An integrated 128-channel (64x64) audio interface lets you record with digitally recallable analog preamps and a complete rack of vintage EQ and dynamics processors for every channel and bus. Modeled after classic analog studio designs, these compressor and EQ plug-ins load both natively on the StudioLive 32R and inside Studio One®, providing the ultimate mixing and recording flexibility.

An integrated monitor mixer.

Having a dedicated monitor mixer is the best way to ensure musicians can hear themselves clearly on stage. When connected to a StudioLive Series III console mixer, the StudioLive 32R provides remote inputs and main outputs while simultaneously retaining full control over its FlexMixes, so you can create up to six monitor mixes complete with independent gate, compression, EQ, and effects on every channel and bus.

The perfect personal monitoring system.

When combined with up to 16 EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers, the StudioLive 32R is the most powerful personal monitoring hub available. With 16 FlexMix buses that can be configured as aux mixes, subgroups, or matrix mixes, the StudioLive 32R makes it easy to create simplified mixes for musicians on stage. No other personal monitoring system offers so much power and flexibility.

The digital stage box.

As a digital stage box, the StudioLive 32R provides 24 remote digitally controlled XMAX preamps that can be gain-staged right from your StudioLive Series III console Fat Channel. The outputs of the StudioLive 32R automatically mirror the mixes available on your console mixer, making routing fast and easy.

A complete networked solution.

StudioLive Series III networked products form an ecosystem that is easily expanded and quickly configured. Designed to enhance each other, these products are at the forefront of AVB networking technology. Whether used standalone or part of a StudioLive Series III ecosystem network, the StudioLive 32R is the ultimate compact audio solution.

One-click recording

The StudioLive 32R is tightly integrated with PreSonus® Capture® live-recording software. Capture is designed to make recording easy by instantly configuring with your mixer and allowing you to record every channel plus the main mix with a single mouse click. Even better, your Capture sessions open natively in Studio One!

World-class recording software included

Take your Capture recordings to the next level with Studio One Artist. Open your multitrack sessions natively in Studio One to start mixing! Studio One’s intuitive drag-and-drop workflow makes recording, mixing, and producing fast and fun.

PreSonus EarMix 16M 16x2 AVB Personal Monitor Mixer

Professional, networked personal monitoring.

Designed to work seamlessly with the PreSonus® StudioLive® Series III family of mixers, yet compatible with other AVB-enabled systems, the PreSonus EarMix™ 16M personal monitor mixer provides a high-quality, expandable, networked monitoring solution for stage, installed sound systems, and studio recording. We gave EarMix 16M fully professional sound quality, build quality, and features, including a high-performance headphone amplifier, to ensure you have the monitoring you need for any situation. Each EarMix 16M accepts 16 mono channels of input via AVB networking and you can network multiple units with a StudioLive Series III mixer.

Loud, clear, customizable mixes.

High-quality monitoring is crucial for artists to deliver their best performance, so we’ve given the EarMix 16M a loud, clear headphone amplifier that can drive low-impedance devices such as professional-caliber in-ear-monitors. We started with a top of the line digital-to-analog converter for the best dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratio. We took special care in the amplifier design to deliver excellent sound with a wide range of in-ear monitors and headphones with different impedances. Controls and inputs can be customized on each unit to allow each musician to create a mix that works best for them. Once you’ve perfected a set of monitor mixes, save the whole scene to internal memory; you can store and recall up to 16 mix scenes locally.

What is an AVB network

Audio networking is much more than just a way to connect a digital snake. With an AVB network, you can connect digital audio devices over long distances using CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cable and route your audio anywhere on the network with extremely low latency. AVB offers several unique benefits that make it a better choice for audio than other networking protocols. For example, AVB provides a high-precision clock that significantly reduces harmonic distortion and phasing, ensuring your audio stays clear and clean. AVB ensures you always have enough bandwidth to carry your low latency audio even when your intern starts streaming a movie. These important benefits are an inherent part of AVB; you don’t need to do anything special to your devices or AVB switch. And you can only get them with AVB.

PoE: Remote power for networked devices.

The EarMix 16M can be powered with its included external power supply but in many cases—such as when it’s difficult to provide power across multiple onstage locations it’s better to use Power over Ethernet (PoE). PoE is a technology that enables network cables to carry electrical power to compatible devices. With PoE, a single cable delivers both network data, such as digital audio, and electrical power. You can locate a PoE-enabled device anywhere you can run an Ethernet cable because you don’t need a local power source. Moreover, PreSonus’ SW5E five-port AVB switchenables you to connect multiple EarMix 16Ms to the AVB network and provides PoE.

A system that can grow with your needs.

One EarMix 16M is a beautiful thing but the system really shines when you need monitoring for the whole band. A pair of AVB jacks enable you to chain multiple EarMix 16Ms while also connecting to a StudioLive Series III mixer. You can expand even further by chaining EarMix 16Ms from multiple PreSonus SW5E AVB switches. Once you’ve created your AVB network, setting up EarMix 16M routings from a networked StudioLive Series III console or using free PreSonus UC Surface control software for Mac, Windows, iPad, and Android is fast and easy.

Your ears and bands will thank you.

EarMix 16M’s connectivity, AVB networking with PoE, and PreSonus’ famed hardware/software integration give you all the tools you need to create a truly professional personal monitoring system that can serve even the largest ensembles. We remembered the little things, too, like an optional microphone stand mount. Best of all, thanks to loud, clear headphone amps, high-end converters, and top-quality signal processing, EarMix 16M delivers exceptional sound quality that will further enhance your hard-earned reputation as an audio professional.
