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.
M32 features ultra-sleek styling, offering you a truly luxurious mixing experience.
High-end construction materials including carbon fiber 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.

Sends On Fader

M32 brings the convenience of digital mixing to your Aux and output bus mixes too, thanks to its integrated Sends on Fader feature.
This incredible function allows you to build powerful, dedicated sub-mixes for monitor, secondary zone feeds, and much more-all without affecting the front of house mix or levels.
The M32 allows you to send your choice of signals to any Aux or output bus and then dial in the perfect mix via the channel faders.
The console remembers where you set the faders and instantly recalls them when you select a bus for quick adjustments.

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.
DCA control affects the FOH mix, while allowing the individual buses to remain unchanged.
The result is a customizable workflow that provides maximum flexibility, but still allows individual buses and subgroups to serve the purpose they were intended for, such as zone sends, broadcast feeds, etc.

View Function

Across the M32 you'll find 11 strategically placed View buttons associated with various functions. These buttons enable immediate access to information about that specific function.
For instance, if you press the View button in the Equalizer section, information for that channel's EQ is instantly shown on the main display, providing in-depth editing of all related parameters.
This direct access to visual fine-tuning gives the engineer a level of control previously available only on consoles costing exponentially more.

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.
As with channels and buses, individual Scribble Strips are provided for immediate identification. Buttons can be defined to toggle parameters on/off, adjust timing of effects by tapping, or jump to specific screen views.
Rotary encoders with LED collars can be assigned to specific channel parameters, or to additional parameters in the Dynamics section relevant to the current channel selection.

"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. We call it "Acoustic Integration".
The M32'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, the iQ Series features "True Physical Modeling" of some of the most popular speakers which can be easily remote controlled via the M32, allowing the sound engineer to apply different speaker models in real time from the comfort of the mixing desk.
"Acoustic Integration" is the next live sound revolution.
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!
