The MIDAS M32 live/studio digital mixing console combines 40 input channels and 25 mix buses with MIDAS performance in a future-proof 96 kHz open architecture design with 192 kHz 24 bit ADC and DAC converters. The M32 employs 32 MIDAS PRO Series microphone preamplifiers and custom-designed MIDAS PRO motorized faders, rated for one million life cycles.
Featuring the I/O and controls needed for most demanding applications, the MIDAS M32 is a future-forward console suited for house of worship and concert performances, blending quality with affordability.
The M32’s mic preamps are the same ones as those use in the industry-standard MIDAS XL4 and Heritage 3000 consoles. Such top artists as Bon Jovi, Alanis Morrisette, Alicia Keys, Foo Fighters, Christina Aguilera, Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam and others have used these consoles.
The brilliance of M32’s workflow is its simplicity. Tactile controls enable smooth adjustments to critical elements as mixing progresses, with the TFT screen keeping users informed. This integration of tactile controls, motorized faders and LCD and TFT displays makes the M32 experience ideal for live sound, broadcast, studio recording and post-production applications.
The M32 EDITOR gives users command of the M32 remotely via computer. Move a fader on the PC and it moves on the M32. Press a button on the computer and the button toggles on the M32. The M32 EDITOR also enables users to create scenes on the PC to minimize the time required for sound checks.
