Can I connect a StudioLIve 32R rack mixer via AVB bridge (Waves BR1) to a Waves SuperRack for sound grid plugin processing? If not what are the alternatives?

Thank you

From the manuals here (pg. 10) and here, the current BR1 v3 doesn't seem to distinguish between the model of AVB device.

As of right now, the Waves SoundGrid BR1 page says "This product is under revision: New Version coming in 2021."

I have a Series III 32R mixer streaming all of its AVB channels into a SW5E switch and on to the Waves BR-1. I have had no issues with using a SoundGrid server and Waves plugins live. I got lucky finding the BR-1, but so far it has proved worthy of the seach.  I'm only into the first weeks of testing, but it seems totally stable. The RM32ai does not have "real" AVB capability, so the BR-1 will not work for it.
