I must say I disagree with you guys, and must jump to Allen & Heaths defense here. The iLive is supposed to be a professional environment, and that does not mean supporting all sorts of homebrewed solutions. It is already hard to get people to recognize the very healthy sound of the iLive system, which is actually the only thing besides sound craft/studer and midas out there, that really sounds very very good.

But the build quality and feel of the fixed format racks and surfaces is sub-par unfortunately, and opening up to an endless amount of weird midi-solutions out there, will only make the rider acceptance decrease even further.

The iLive is a great system, let A&H work on improving it, not worry about solutions that will eventually hurt surface sales – the surfaces are already too expensive.
