mb32c has better eqs than mb3. i use the 32c to mix from pro tools on all my mixing. i notice that i use a lot less plugins with the 32c and still get what i'm looking for. it's a pain in the ass to get them to talk to each other but i've gotten better at it. the 32c also has the ability to dramatically change the mixer strip size and that is good because the mb3 barely fits 8-10 strips on a 1920x1080 screen.
