Hardware Saturation For ITB mixes?

I'm trying to smooth out digital harshness with saturation while mixing ITB. Would it be better to pass individual tracks through a hardware tube device like an LA2 or to use a tube emulation plugin?

I'm sure most will agree that hardware sounds better, but to use it ITB, the signal has to pass through DA/AD. Will this smooth things out or will the track still have digital harshness because of the conversion?
