The 40-input, 25-bus M32C takes the brain of the flagship M32 Digital Mixing Console and packs it all into a high-performance aluminum and steel 1U form factor. Combine the M32C with the MIDAS DL16 or DL32 Stage Boxes to effortlessly run sound with high I/O counts in multiple remote locations. Dual AES50 networking CAT5 connectors allow for up to 96 remote inputs and 48 output channels to be controlled from and processed by the M32C. All of this can be managed concurrently from various locations and instances via free remote control software applications, M32-EDIT, M32-MIX, and M32-Q.
Above all, M32C is designed to put the power of digital in your hands, without compromise. MIDAS’ singular focus on a matchless value proposition means M32C integrates advanced features such as integrated personal monitor mixing and true high-speed digital audio networking as standard features.
“Acoustic Integration” - the Live Sound Revolution
Legendary 40-year old British company TURBOSOUND, famous for producing some of the world’s best speaker systems, have teamed up with MIDAS to seamlessly integrate mixer and speaker systems. MIDAS calls it “Acoustic Integration”. The M32C’s ULTRANET bus allows streaming up to 16 channels of pristine digital audio to an array of TURBOSOUND iQ speakers – all on a single CAT5 cable, along with control data to set sound presets remotely.
Furthermore, iQ Series loudspeakers feature “True Physical Modelling” of some of the most popular speakers, which can be easily remote controlled via the M32C, allowing the sound engineer to apply different speaker models in real time from the comfort of the mixing desk.
100-Band RTA for all Channel/Bus EQs
The M32C includes a 100-band Real Time Analyzer (RTA) with full Bar and Spectrograph views on the M32-EDIT control application. This high-resolution RTA displays the audio energy distribution in 100 frequency bands over time - capturing a sonogram window of a full 10 seconds. Switch between the Large RTA view, displaying any available signal in full screen resolution, or the Combined view with the RTA view shown above each of the channel and bus EQ curves.
What are AES50 and SuperMAC?
AES50 simultaneously provides high channel counts, extremely low and deterministic latencies, accurate phase-aligned networked clock distribution, error detection, network redundancy, with simple deployment and ease of use to meet the needs of the live performance industry.
This unique combination also benefits both live and studio recording applications, as well as post-production, broadcasting and audio routing infrastructure. SuperMAC is a proprietary implementation of AES50 owned by KLARK TEKNIK. Originally developed by Sony Pro-Audio Labs in Oxford, UK, it forms the basis of the Audio Engineering Society’s AES50 open standard for digital audio networking – High Resolution Multi-channel Audio Interconnection (HRMAI), as published by the Audio Engineering Society, Inc.
Virtual Effects Racks
M32C includes an extensive array of onboard effects, rendering outboard processing racks a thing of the past. The Virtual FX rack features 8 true stereo, studio-grade effects engines each assignable to any input, group or output mix bus. Choose from high-end FX modules including a range of reverbs, delays, EQs, dynamics and much more. Each FX algorithm has been completely re-imagined for stunning performance – typically costing several times the price of the M32C. Custom-designed, and physically modeled after some of the most iconic and sought-after processors, all effects run inside the low-latency environment of the M32C mix engine, ensuring flawless performance, flexible routing and the end of cable faults forever!

Comments about Midas M32C 40-input Digital Rack Mixer:
I absolutely love x/m32 consoles. What's not to love? They're cheap, the form factor is ideal for quick in/out, they are uber customizable. Oh, and they're built on top of an OSC platform. How many other consoles have that going for them? Sure, there is no time-based automation internally, but that's completely irrelevant with the level of OSC control you can do with one of these things. OSC aside... M32c is a steaming pile of ineptitude: unlike x32 core it has no headphone amp, and no user-definable buttons or knobs (x32 core had 4x buttons, 2 rotaries.) The only real action you can take with this thing if you lose network connection for any reason, is to access the large knob up front which allows you to navigate basic console functions such as selecting synchronization source or loading a scene/show. ...so be sure to save yourself a backup scene and know how to get to it real quick like if you have an emergency with one of these things. If all you need, like a previous reviewer mentioned, is a monitor rig, and plan to purchase additional i/o to go along with this 1u (or perhaps x-dante or adat card,) you're probably fine with one of these. I would, however NOT recommend purchase of this poor excuse for an console for any live sound event, unless you also purchase an x-touch (full size) at the *very* least. If Music Group were to issue a new version with a headphone amp, buttons and knobs on the front in this price range, I may adjust that opinion slightly; but all in all - save your cash for something more emergency-resistant.
Comments about Midas M32C 40-input Digital Rack Mixer:
I have been using the Midas brand digital consoles for years and this is a very flexible unit. Paired up with either the DL16 or DL32 Midas mic pre-amps, you can have concert quality sound in a rack mounted case. Setting up the network for ipad control is easy. Simply connect your router via an ethernet cable, set your IP address and connect with Midas app on your ipad. Once you connect to the router, you just insert the IP address into the Midas app and are ready to go. The best thing is that you can import all of your M32/X32 scenes right into the M32C using a usb flash drive. Music playback and recording is also through the USB port in wav format at 44.1.
