Best native low latency channel strip for Logic?

I'm looking at potentially switching from Pro Tools 8 LE on a PC to Logic on a Mac. Almost all of my plugins will be fine (except for the Digidesign ones) but what I would definitely regret losing is my native McDSP plugins (Channel G, ML4000, NR575, Revolver) most particularly Channel G which is a great channel strip but unfortunately it's only available in TDM or RTAS.

What would you guys recommend to replace it? The UAD stuff is supposed to be very good but isn't low latency.

Anybody have a recommendation for a low-latency native channel strip to replace McDSP's Channel G in Logic?

Metric Halo's pretty sweet. May be worth a look.

This one looks good too. Anybody compared the MH Channel Strip with the Waves SSL G? I don't have a Mac yet so can't check out the demo, just doing some research ahead of time.

Why do you need low latency if logic has delay compensation.

Duende channel strip, UAD 88rs and metric halo all good

I've tried Metric Halo, Waves SSL E/G Channel, UAD Neve 88RS, URS Channel Strip Pro, & Wave Arts Track Plug 5.

It's a tricky choice because the UAD Neve 88RS is the best IMO, but I wouldn't get a UAD card just for that plug-in. You don't have to worry about latency in Logic. It has plug-in delay compensation as well as adjustable buffers for tracking vs mixing.

There are only 3 or 4 plug-ins I still use on my UAD-2 card. Personally, I wouldn't get one right now if I didn't already have one. After the UAD, the URS Channel Strip Pro is my favorite. It's got tons of algorithms and while they are only a vague approximations of the hardware they're trying to emulate, they nevertheless sound great.

Metric Halo is also pretty good. I'm not really a fan of the Waves SSL channel strips. To me they sound no different than the other 2 Waves channel strips from 10 years ago. YMMV.
