Avid VENUE S3L-X, AVB, and macOS Big Sur

TL;DR From my initial testing, macOS Big Sur works great with the S3L and S6L.

When I first started testing, I was doing so through the PreSonus SW5E, which resulted in the clicky AVB audio problems I’d experienced with macOS High Sierra (see my previous blog post on the topic.) After upgrading the firmware on the SW5E, everything worked great.
