...DSP systems. 0.7 through HDX with minimal plugs in PT is great. Then try the 0.3ms latency directly in Logic through an Apogee Ensemble TB with DualPath. Now THAT is low latency. Feels amazing.

The Ensemble is what I consider a "no excuses" device. It sounds great, therefore if you are not making great records with it, IT is not the...
