Can the rack be made to export all 48 inputs over ACE, and is ACE ethernet (As opposed to just cat 5) based?

I ask because if the answer to both is yes, then a very interesting possibility might exist – could you could split the ace signal with a suitable ethernet switch and then record all the audio inputs directly into a PC with a simple dumb ethernet card?

Granted monitoring on the PC gets tricky due to timing issues, but just recording what is on the line should be almost trivial?

Possibly an ASIO driver that can record from ACE?

Any chance of a protocol document for the control side? I want to write a Cadac SAM clone.
