I dont know your name but your question is what I have been wanting to know as well....this is what I wrote Personus as well.
I wrote them and asked about using other DAWS...below is what they said and my reply back.....
Thanks for getting in touch.
DAW control for 3rd party DAW's currently not available on the Series III consoles. However I just wanted to give an update on MCU and HUI Mode for Series III Mixers.
We are currently testing a build within our QA Department. As soon as it is stable, we will release it to our Private Beta Group and then as a Public Beta . After that it will be released as an official version. We do not have a time frame on this process but just so you know its current status.

My reply we will see if they listen to us!
Ok thats what I wanted to know, just a note it would be helpful if Presonus would just come out and say on the website somewhere it s not compatible with other DAWS other than yours. That lets us other DAW user know without trying to dig for it on your site!
Presonus use to to be user friendly with all DAWs, most of my studio friends that use other DAWS are not going to stop using what they have been using for years and learn another DAW. Hope you folks will listen to your customers and make that happen, I would be buying the Mixer today if that were the case. thanks Tony
