Not anymore. Apparently the new Universal Audio Apollo interface/UAD Card lets you track with plugins! I've got a friend who bought one, and he's loving it.
Yes, but only with UAD plugins, and the Apollo is not a DAW. If routed correctly the plugins can be used like a preamp or any other processor, amp or whatever at the front-end. But only if they´re UAD. Unless Vandal becomes a part of UAD it still won´t be possible - unless there will be other solutions from Sascha´s side in future.
Hello, first time contributing on this forum, even though I'd been very actively educating myself around here for 2 years now (thank you very much to all regular contributors!)
As far as I know, Reaper is the only DAW that lets you record your monitoring output signal. So if you want to commit to whatever plugin you'd been monitoring through you can. I always record a dry duplicate though, just to have an option.
Good day wherever you may be,
