Is there going to be a prime 4 private team? If so I’d jump at that.

I was actually shocked to see even a beta test for a mixer.

I’m curious to see what more can be done to the x1850 during it’s life.

Why? Nowadays a mixer is not only a piece of hardware. There are several things what can be programmed and therefore tested. If you look at the FX section you have encoders, buttons, two displays and a touch-strip and the software is controlling how this things are acting. I am developing the MIDI Beat Counter and have also designed some encoders, buttons and a display and see what is possible on my channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOWtjDd72MZECSOpuWn6xFQ I would love to have a beta test program for it.

Me too, though mostly only because they never did one for the X1800 though it too had bugs early on, some still persist, and the 1800 and 1850 are supposed to be fairly similar except for different cosmetics and slightly different DACs & headphone section. Arguably and only going from the threads on the forum considering I only have the X1800s, though, the X1850 is apparently having some catastrophic software issues at a level that the released X1800 firmware never had. So I suppose this makes sense as an emergency effort to try and crowdsource a resolution on it. Ditto with keeping it on the private beta down-low considering this is a new model and there’s no reason to be publicizing an awareness/admission of such problems more than necessary.

I’m confident there’s a lot else that can be done on these Prime mixers.
