At present additional investment in Dante Card causes loss of access to Smaart & Capture, unless a second PC/Mac is available.

We are looking into support for Capture and SMAART via Dante in a future release. I don't have an estimated release date at this time.

Thanks as always for answer Ray.

Recent RM32AI firmware & UC Surface is a great update for use of Dante.  Studio One using Dante now viable replacement for Capture for live recording.

But still need Dante support Smaart at FOH - any indication of timescale? (Also Smaart on iPad)

It's also time for some basic MIDI functionality to be added to RM  - even just scene change, effects on/off?

Ray - if you are still out there.... another year has passed;

Smaart & Capture still don't work with Dante - unacceptable to loose functionality with expensive upgrade

Also No MIDI on RM32AI yet!

Dante limited to 48khz - this is a Presonus issue, and not a Dante limitation.

Using Q&A forum may reduce direct pressure as users have many issues and no focus on important issues, however impact will be on those considering purchases - I know it will affect my choice of Presonus in the future!
