Input monitoring on native DAWs?

What native DAWs support direct input monitoring during record? RME offered this feature on at least one of their interfaces, but at the time, Samplitude was the only platform that supported it. Does anybody else offer this basic functionality?
To be clear, I'm talking about directly monitoring your interfaces input via it's corresponding output during record, without the latency of monitoring through the CPU. So on playback you hear the recorded track, punch into record and you directly monitor what's plugged into the corresponding input, punch out and you're monitoring the recorded track again... I'm sure you're all familiar with the functionality.
This integration between interface and app would be a fairly major selling point to me, simple as it sounds, as it would prevent me from having to add an otherwise un-needed stand-alone hard disc recorder. Thanks for any ideas..

Nuendo, Cubase(old and new SX) offer this...Sonar/Cakewalk offer it as well but I don't know how well those are compared to Nuendo or Cubase.
Echo Audio products offer direct monitoring through their hardware..MidiMan MAudio as well...
Nuendo is really quick when using their direct monitoring.
ASIO based drivers tend to be the best for this since they run in the background of the Operating System....basically bypassing all garbage that Windows uses!

I'm doing this in both Logic & DP via a Metric Halo Mobile I/O; their console software is ultra patchable/flexible though it's still a work in progress. Very easy to set up zero latency monitoring of all eight analog inputs (ADAT input monitoring is coming soon - that still has to be done via software in DP/Logic/etc).

Cheers,

Don

Until now, I never had a customer complaining about latency...
But I´ve been in another studio around here and they use a Yama 01v with the 001 and god... that´s latency... it´s almost 1/2 a second... you´re always listening to a flam on you kick

The question is: which DAW offers low latency (<64 samples) while having large buffers on non live / non input tracks. This means that the DAW would have to manage multiple buffer sizes, one of live tracks, one for other non live mixing tracks. This kind of architecture is part of Apple Logic, and I don't know if any other DAW has the same or something similar.

Cubendo has only one buffer size and it is questionable if this is the best.
