M32 was to combine the best of classic British console designs with advanced modern technology to completely redefine what a medium-format live console can offer.
We began the industrial design process by drawing inspiration from a somewhat unexpected source - the luxury and high-performance car industry.
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. M32 features ultra-sleek styling, offering you a truly luxurious mixing experience. High-end construction materials including carbon fibre provide unparalleled durability and strength, plus substantially lower weight than comparable consoles.
The M32 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.
The MIDAS M32 is a future-forward console that completely raises the bar for live mixing.
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.
Backing the analogue input section are audiophile Cirrus Logic multi-channel 192 kHz capable A/D converters, which boast a 114 dB dynamic range, ensuring impressively low distortion and low noise performance.
The MIDAS mic preamp is considered by leading live sound and recording engineers to be the very essence of the famous MIDAS sound. More than 40 years of design experience paired with the finest choice of premium-grade 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 live sound engineers to their best work, creating sonic landscapes that have captivated audiences worldwide.
7" Main Display
M32's 7" day-viewable color TFT (Thin-Film Transistor) display shows the setting parameters you need when you need them.
Selected for its high-contrast performance and outdoor visibility, TFT is ideal for concert and open air festival venues. Flanked by high-precision, context-sensitive tactile encoders, the screen comes to life and immediately reports in high definition all adjustments applied to a wide range of parameters.
Intelligent design puts control of vital functions such as Effects, Metering, Routing and much more 1 or 2 button presses away.
100-Band RTA for all Channel/Bus EQ's
The M32 now includes a high-resolution 100-band Real Time Analyzer (RTA), with full Bar and Spectrograph views. 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. See the results of your filtering choices in the audio spectrum directly. Additionally, the RTA can be displayed on top of the 31-band graphic EQs in the FX rack.
Monitoring and controlling frequencies has never been easier!
16 Breathtaking FX "Plug-Ins" Based on True Physical Modeling
We've added 16 new 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 analog 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 equalizers 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.
Gain Splitting and Remote Control for FOH and Monitoring
A new Gain Split mode separates channel gain (trim) from the head amp gain, allowing both the FOH and/or the monitor engineer to adjust local trim digitally - and independently of the preamp gain.
Additionally, the new HA Gain Remote option allows console gains to be remotely controlled by an external console, such as when using the M32 as a stage box.
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 analog 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.
The MIDAS PRO FADER-
Rated for 1 Million Life Cycles
In our pursuit to lead the industry in every possible aspect, we decided to design the world's most reliable motor fader. We dove deep into materials science, employing semi-precious metals that offered the durability we desired. We took painstaking care to design a motorised fader that would provide continuous performance night after night, year after year.
After spending a great deal of time working with metal vendors, we developed precision components that offer high linearity, robustness, and smooth feel during operation. We needed ultra-straight high-grade steel guide rods with smooth polished surfaces-and we got them. We worked closely with our manufacturing partners to maintain the tolerance of our parts, always choosing the most suitable materials and controlling the processes to ensure consistent moulding quality and eliminating the warping and deformation caused by shrinking as the parts cool.
True, none of this was easy-we spent many long hours developing the MIDAS PRO FADER design. However the results speak for themselves.
MIDAS PRO FADERS are rated for up to 1,000,000 cycles-three times that of other leading manufacturers.
LCD Scribble Strips
A total of 29 programmable LCD Scribble Strips offer channel/bus identification that mirrors what is being controlled.
Use them to enter input/output tags, plus add icons you recognize at-a-glance. Then assign colors to create visual groups for immediate, on-the-fly recognition of similar inputs.
Simple, elegant and effective - plus you'll never need masking tape again.
Virtual Effects Racks
M32 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 M32.
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 M32 mix engine, ensuring flawless performance, flexible routing and the end of cable faults forever!
The immaculate tube signal path in Teletronix' LA-2A Leveling Amplifier has left its exceptional clarity, its rich and warm compression on countless albums of the past decades.
The ultra-smooth optical attenuator is closely modeled in our LA COMPRESSOR. It provides breezing, natural and effortlessly musical compression. (Inspired by Teletronix LA-2A*)
When Urei released the 1176LN Limiting Amplifier in the late 60's, it broke new ground. Field Effect Transistors employed were just invented and the 1176 was one of the first audio processors to benefit from this new technology.
Our digital re-incarnation, ULTIMO COMPRESSOR, is based on the early Rev. E model and authentically captures the smooth character of the original class-A output stage and its FET's legendary fast Attack. (Inspired by Urei 1176LN*)
The Fairchild 670 tube compressor not only achieves record bids in high-end vintage gear auctions, it also delivers some of the finest colorations in compressor history. Two small trim VR's preset the control side chain action, a six-step switch determines the timing, and the two large Input and Threshold knobs adjust the levels.
Our FAIR COMPRESSOR model is true to the original signal path, and conveniently provides models for dual, stereo-linked or M/S operation. (Inspired by Fairchild 670*)
The COMBINATOR is an amazing 5-band compressor that emulates famous broadcasting and mastering compressors.
A highly complex processor, the COMBINATOR utilizes automatic parameter control that produces stunning and "inaudible" results. Makeup-gain for each frequency band will automatically be adjusted by the Spectral Balance Control (SBC) function, to maintain a balanced audio spectrum.
The XTEC EQ1 is undisputedly one of the best passive studio equalizers ever manufactured. Virtually indescribable, recording engineers claim the Pultec EQP-1a to be the "secret sauce" of sound enhancement.
We analyzed this classic to the core and created an exact physical model that reproduces the multi-faceted sound in painstaking detail. Even the transformers and tube output stage have been faithfully modeled! (Inspired by Pultec EQP-1a*)
Pultec simply wrote the book on passive equalization. By digitally "rebuilding" every aspect of the original Pultec classic, we captured the very essence in our parametric equalizer XTEC EQ5. Our digital re-incarnation is based on the original model and authentically emulates the smooth character of the its rather unique components. (Inspired by Pultec MEQ5*)
The new SUB OCTAVER provides two channels of earth-shattering sub-harmonics generation, one or even two octaves below the input signal. While originally designed for bass players, the effect can be adjusted for Hi, Mid and Low frequency tracking to apply to a wide range of applications. This is your secret weapon for beatboxing...
The EDISON EX1 is the re-incarnation of our own analog classics. This remarkably-effective tool allows manipulation of the stereo field. Selectable M/S input/output modes allow the processing or creation of M/S recorded sound sources.
The SOUND MAXIMIZER restores natural brilliance and clarity to any audio signal by adjusting the phase and amplitude integrity to reveal more of the natural texture of the sound, which is often hidden when using some effects and equalizers. (Inspired by Sonic Maximizer 482i*)
The DIMENSIONAL CHORUS is the perfect emulation of what has been referred to as "the best analog Chorus unit ever created". Four simple Mode preset buttons activate amazing effects, best described as "space" and "dimension". Absolutely faithful to the original, multiple preset buttons can be pressed simultaneously. (Inspired by Roland Dimension D Chorus*)
MODULATION DELAY combines three of the most used time modulation effects into one easy-to-operate unit. Enjoy true-stereo delay with a lush and spacious chorus, topped off with three reverb models to choose from.

(Inspired by Lexicon 480L*)
EXCITERS increase presence and intelligibility in live sound applications and are indispensable for adding clarity, air and harmonic overtones in the recording studio. ENHANCERS let you emphasize the Bass, Midrange and Hi output at selectable frequencies.
You can generate maximum punch, clarity and detail, without turning up the overall volume. (Inspired by Aphex Aural Exciter* and SPL Vitalizer*)
Our TruEQ STEREO GEQ delivers musical and responsive signal processing-perfect for general room equalization, indispensable for monitoring. M32 provides up to 16 mono graphic EQs, in addition to the multi-band parametric EQs in all channels and buses, to cope with the most demanding stage monitoring situation.
Plus, the M32's motorized faders can be switched to control the filter bands of the graphic EQ, with the channel LCDs showing the corresponding filter frequencies-and you can even put this on a user defined hot-key for immediate access. (Modeled after KLARK TEKNIK DN360)
VINTAGE ROOM stands out head and shoulders over other competing reverberation strategies in the way it models sound propagation in air and room resonances. Invented in the early '80s, the role model delivered authentic room character from an algorithmic reverb long before convolution-based processing was available.
It is an ideal reverb for mixes or sub-groups, as it adds space to complex signals-highly valued in classical music and broadcasting environments. (Inspired by Quantec QRS*)
PLATE REVERB emulates the characteristics of a plate reverb chamber with control over the damping pad, modulation depth and speed, and crossover. PLATE REVERB will give your tracks the sound heard on countless hit records since the late 1950's. (Inspired by Lexicon PCM70*)
The 3-TAP DELAY in the M32 records the input signal and then echoes it back after a user-definable period of time and number of repeats. What makes the stereo and triple delay useful and outstanding is the linked tap-timing and musical choice of echo patterns.
Use the 3-TAP DELAY to fatten up vocals and instruments, or to add an enhanced spatial element to any performance.
The HALL REVERB effect provides a broad spectrum of reverberation possibilities, from small room to large, or even cavernous proportions. When softly mixed with the original signal, Hall Reverb can be used to create a warm, more natural sound. (Inspired by Lexicon 480L*)
This handy dynamic FLANGER & DELAY duo blends the "whoosh" of soaring jet planes with classic Delay, and can be adjusted from mild to wild. This combination effect only takes up one FX slot. (Inspired by Lexicon PCM70*)
WAVE DESIGNER is a powerful tool for adjusting signal transients and dynamics such as attack and sustain. Use it to make a snare drum really "crack" in the mix or level out volume inconsistencies of slap bass tracks. (Inspired by SPL Transient Designer*)
The STEREO PRECISION LIMITER is perfect for setting a precise volume limits, ensuring distortion-free and optimal signal integrity. Use the Stereo Precision Limiter to boost quiet signals or reduce the level of "hot" signals to prevent clipping. (Inspired by Sony Oxford Dynamics*)
The DE-ESSER is a "must-have" tool for reducing the amount of sibilance in vocal mics while adeptly preserving the natural voice timbre of a performance. Use it to enhance the smoothness of the upper mid to high frequencies in vocals as well as drum overheads and strings, etc. (Inspired by SPL 1239*)
Based on the legendary EMT250, the VINTAGE REVERB delivers a shimmering, bright reverb that won't drown out or overpower your live/recorded tracks. Use the VINTAGE REVERB to sweeten vocals and snare drums without sacrificing clarity. (Inspired by EMT250 Plate Reverb*)
Taking up only one FX slot, the CHORUS & CHAMBER effect combines the shimmer and doubling characteristics of a studio-grade Chorus with the sweet sound of a traditional Chamber reverb. (Inspired by Lexicon PCM70*)
