Hello everyone,

this is my first post.
I just installed a LIO4Pre 3d in my studio and am surprised how well everything is working.
It would be great to get a bit more info from MH regarding when we can expect certain features (like Console Connect) and some feedback of 3d users on how their setup is working.
By looking at the forum it seems that either nobody is using 3d or everything is just working without issues... Razz

I'm running PT 2018.12 Ultimate and am replacing a Native PCIe card. I'm using a Sonnet Ethernet card in Hackintosh for Eucon (Avid S3) and simply connected the LIO to the free ethernet port on the back of the S3.
Everything is working fine at 32 samples buffer size.

One question I'm having, would it be technically possible to use the SubD25 Monitor output for my speakers and at the same time keep the remaining output 1-2 Jacks for my RTW meters without attenuation of the monitor controller?

The 1+2 TRS jacks are multed (physically) from the 1+2 outputs on the DB-25. So anything you do to Analog 1+2 Out will appear on both the DB-25 and the TRS. If you want to feed the RTW with an unattenuated signal, you'll have to use a different output channel pair for monitoring. If your RTW supports AES, you might consider feeding it digitally.

Thanks bj for the quick answer.

I have another question regarding the Monitor section. Is there any way to control that via Midi? Like in the RME Total Mix?
I would like to setup a monitor controller that even works without the computer running.

I'm wondering what the status of the Console Connect plugin is. I did the 3d Upgrade in April thinking it might be available soon.

How long do you think it will take? 1 Month? 1 Year?
I'm thinking of going back to the FireWire connection and using the old MIO COnsole.
Thanks for your help!

It will be included by the time we get to GM. I would say within the next month or two.
