The 40-input, 25-bus M32C takes the brain of the flagship M32 Digital Mixing Console and packs it all into a high-performance aluminium and steel 1U form factor. Combine the M32C with our 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 our 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.
Built for Tomorrow
The M32C is a console built for today, and tomorrow – its rock-solid proprietary operating system and the 0.8 ms audio engine provide outstanding state-of-the-art audio performance for years to come.
“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 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.
“Acoustic Integration” is the next live sound revolution.
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.
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!
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.

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.
The Lexicon 480L* has been recognized as the gold standard of digital reverb. We have included three of the finest reverb models – Rich Plate, Room and Rich Chamber. The M32’s models precisely capture all nuances based on our “True Physical Modeling” and our algorithms even incorporate the unit’s AD/DA gain-stepping converters – nailing the entire analog and digital circuit paths right down to the last detail. (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, which is highly desirable 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*)
