As the StudioLive mixers are software based, why is there a limitation on using the plugins currently offered to run on the Series III products on the RM16Ai and others in its line? Is a different DSP being used, or other hardware limitation?
I purchased an RM16Ai new within the past 2 months as I preferred its layout over the Series III line. As far as I was made aware, both were software based interfaces. The advantage to a software based mixer is the ability to stave off obsolescence, but already the RM16Ai seems to be showing a limitation. Is this true?
