The goal in designing the M32 was to combine the best of classic British console designs with advanced modern technology to redefine what a medium-format live console can offer. A close look at M32 reveals that the styling is new in every sense of the word. Its new design elements mesh perfectly with a recognizable MIDAS signature, setting the M32 apart from any other console. Its beautifully streamlined and elegant form factor completely revolutionizes the experience of live mixing.

The MIDAS M32 construction is impressive and is designed to offer years of reliable performance while withstanding the demanding environment of live performance. M32 employs a predominantly space-frame construction, with parts of the sub-frame consisting of durable and lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum. Multiple alloys have been employed throughout to guarantee maximum component efficiency and an improved performance-to-weight ratio.

Industry-Leading 192 kHz Precision
The groundbreaking M32 console combines legendary MIDAS sound quality with advanced digital technology, future-proof 96 kHz capable open architecture design and industry-leading 192 kHz ADC and DAC converters, creating a revolutionary mid-format live console. High-end construction materials including carbon fiber provide unparalleled durability and strength, plus substantially lower weight than comparable consoles.

Legendary MIDAS Sound Quality
While the MIDAS M32 design, styling, and construction will surely turn a lot of heads, it’s the sound that matters most to engineers and performing artists. And that’s where M32 shines even brighter – as the latest in a long line of pristine-sounding MIDAS consoles, it descends from a celebrated lineage that literally set the standard in electrical design and sound quality. Ever since MIDAS consoles first found fame 40 years ago with acts like Billy Joel, Yes, The Beach Boys, Pink Floyd and others, the MIDAS legacy has always been about uncompromising quality and the ultimate in sound reproduction.

Award-Winning MIDAS Mic Preamplifier
The MIDAS mic preamp is considered by leading live sound and recording engineers to be the essence of the MIDAS sound. More than 40 years of design experience paired with the finest components lead to the acclaimed warmth and depth, bring out subtle ambience, maintain spatial positioning, and more effectively capture a precise image. The acclaimed sound of the award-winning MIDAS microphone preamplifier has inspired generations of engineers to their best work, creating sonic landscapes that have captivated audiences worldwide.

What Makes the M32 Possible is – Everything
Whether you come from an analog mixing background or are accustomed to using other digital consoles, your first experience with M32 has been engineered to be intuitive, fluid and straightforward.

The brilliance of the M32 is its simplicity and workflow. Tactile controls allow smooth adjustments to critical elements as the mix progresses while the TFT screen keeps you informed every step of the way. This integration of tactile controls, motorised faders and the array of LCD and TFT displays makes the M32 experience the premiere solution for Live Sound, Broadcast, Studio Recording and Post Production applications.

M32 changes the game by completely rethinking what is possible in a digital mixer. An intuitive workflow coupled with a fully interactive user interface ensures immediate familiarity and instills confidence. Advanced engineering and meticulous design deliver stellar sonic performance at an extremely affordable price – changing the game entirely.

DCA Groups
DCA (Digitally Controlled Amplifier) groups allow control over several signals at once without actually mixing them into a subgroup bus. M32’s 8 DCA groups let you control multiple signals via a single fader, such as the entire drum mix, the horn section, or the backup vocalists, etc.

Assign Section
While some digital consoles offer a few user-definable controls, M32’s Assign section sets a new standard by providing a total of 36 fully customizable controls on three separate layers.

16 Breathtaking FX “Plug-Ins” Based on True Physical Modeling
We’ve added 16 breathtaking FX “Plug-Ins” to the M32, giving you access to a total of 50+ effects that would otherwise cost tens of thousands of dollars in hardware.

This new generation of high-end FX “Plug-Ins” is based on True Physical Modeling of classic audio hardware. We essentially “rebuilt” classic analogue gear in the digital domain and included models of legendary processors such as Urei’s 1176*, Teletronix LA-2A* and Fairchild 670* compressors as well as the legendary Pultec* EQP-1a and EQ5 equalisers etc. We also added a cutting-edge 5-band multiband compressor.
Last but not least, the M32 can now run 4 studio-quality stereo reverbs together with 8 channels of 31-band graphic EQ. This allows you to replace your old outboard gear with a fully recallable onboard solution.

More Routing and Processing Flexibility
The M32’s routing becomes even more flexible with this recent firmware upgrade. Output signals and XLR outputs are now treated separately, allowing signals from AES50 sources or expansion cards to be routed directly to the M32’s analogue outputs.

For example, now you can use the outputs from an M32 for directly routing back PA or monitoring signals from a main or FOH console. New output tap points can be set as pre- or post-mute for greater usability with your P16 personal monitoring mixers. This is very useful in situations where you don’t want mute groups to interrupt your signal flow.

Mighty New Tools for Scene and Show Management
Introducing the Cue List, an innovative way to automate the loading of scenes and new “Snippets” at different points during a show. Each of the 500 Cue entries can load any of the 100 Scenes or Snippets separately or at the same time. This gives you an amazing total of 500 Cues x 100 Scenes x 100 Snippets!

For example, store your favorite EQ settings for drums on channels 1 - 8 as a Snippet, recallable in an instant as its own preset, completely independent of the console’s overall scene. It’s like taking a snapshot of a parameter on an input, return, FX slot, bus, Matrix, Main or DCA group – and saving it for quick access whenever you need it.

You Are Connected
Each M32 comes loaded with all of the connectivity, I/O and functionality you need, right out of the box – but it doesn’t end there. Onboard USB 2.0 connectivity delivers a full 32 x 32 channels of audio and MIDI to your DAW. Integrated multi-channel digital audio interfaces connect to remote stage boxes and/or the P16 Personal Monitor System. Native Ethernet control enables remote operation by computer, iPad or iPhone over a wired or wireless network, across the room – or across the planet!

Dual AES50 network ports featuring KLARK TEKNIK SuperMAC technology support up to 96 inputs and 96 outputs over shielded (STP) CAT5 cable, allowing remote stage boxes and sharing signals among several connected M32s and other MIDAS, KLARK TEKNIK and AES50-equipped products.

On-board ULTRANET provides a 16-channel digital mix direct to P16 Personal Monitor Mixers, without added hardware, cost or latency. Ethernet, USB and MIDI are all standard features on M32.

An additional expansion slot is also included, so that the M32 can connect to current and future digital audio networks and link protocols via a wide range of expansion cards including USB, FireWire*, ADAT*, MADI and Audinate Dante*.
