I’m not in the live field these days, but what’s the latency of these things and is it using the whole “audio over ethernet” protocols, or have we moved on from there??

Hi @simon.a.billington,

Yes, Soundgrid setups(I/O+Server) still use audio over ethernet, and latency is almost near zero (0.4 ms) round trip(while using a Waves I/O + Server) but as you can imagine those values will change depending on the session settings, the number of plugins, and SG drivers, as well as the type of plugins used, i.e. If you decide to throw an Abbey Road Chambers in your Session running in 96khz you will add 33 ms additional latency, that goes for SG and Native as well. Latency Values for both Live sound applications and Native setups are available under every plugin product page > Tech Specs > Latency Tab.
