Not asking for a new option card, not asking for board-native processing dedicated for plugins, simply asking that priority be given to making the Waves soundgrid usable via the AVB network. Having my plugins available live would be a game changer and this seems like a pretty straightforward solution.

I recently got SoundGrid BR1 ( from Waves with SuperRack.  I asked PreSonus support team for Audio passing from AVB to BR1 and below is the reply I got from the PreSonus. By the way, I was able to get it working after two weeks of  trial and error..

 Hi Vum, 

Thanks for getting in touch. 

Aside from what is on Waves on website we do not have any more information. 

I'd reach out to your local Waves dealer for more information on this product.

I have a 32R, an SW5E, a Waves mobile server, and a GS-108 switch.  Presonus wasn't very helpful for me either, but the support from Waves is stellar!  If you are running all PCs then you'll need Hive AVB manager software to negotiate AVB streams. I'm running low-latency plugins all over the place!  Bottom line: It can be done already, but it would be great if Presonus would assist with the rather technical set-up.
