I have had a StudioLive 32 Ai since 2014.  Several times I have contemplated selling my rig because (1) PreSonus technology is going in all the right directions, and (2) the fear that those of us with the "older" DSP might just be left in the dust of the new developments and applications.  When the price dropped to almost half what I paid for my 32Ai - I felt I was in trouble.  When the RM's came out, that was great by-the-way, that feeling of all-aloneness rose up again.  Now that new 32 is out, I feel like the StudioLive Classic owners.  On to bigger and better things I guess.  Eventhough how my 32Ai operates is exactly what I wanted and need - so I'm not complaining about that - I have been very dedicated to PreSonus' products.  The technical staff at PreSonus has always been cordial and helpful with all of my needs, when they arose.  My question is:  Are those if us blessed with the StudioLive Classic and AI systems at the height of development, or can we expect more innovative ideas embedded into our systems?  You are forgetting about us are you?

I would not expect any new developments and feature additions any more, but I hope for some improvements regarding "Active Integration", which means AVB networking with the RM mixers. Otherwise I am happy with what I have and I don't need moving faders at all. I am using a SL 2442AI, a RM32AI and a RM16AI in any possible combination (all AVB) and as stand-alone mixers. A Mac mini, two iPads and two routers are always at hand, so if there are no new features coming with the SL 32 and SL 16, I will work with what I have for at least 3 more years.
