I have a Dell XPS 8700 PC system on Windows 10 (24GB Ram, i-7 processor)... I want to get a control surface for Studio One and I really like what StudioLive CS18AI has to offer... but I'm a newb at this Ethernet connection stuff (What ever happened to simple USB anyway?). So, from what I understand, I can connect the StudioLive CS18AI directly to the ethernet card on my Dell with a CAT5 or CAT6 cable and magically that will allow me to control Studio One with the StudioLive CS18AI????? Help! Don't wanna buy an $1100 piece of equipment before I can get this answer.

Hi, 

The StudioLive CS18AI can be directly connected to your computer using a "Cross Over" Ethernet cable. Please see section 2.3 for connection options. Link: https://www-media-presonus.netdna-ssl.com/downloads/products/pdf/CS18AI_OwnersManual_EN_V2_03032017.pdf
